60 FPS has become a bit of a standard for all releases of games on current-gen consoles. Players want to have smoother experiences in games which can overall enhance the gameplay. In Sonic Frontiers, players on current-generation consoles and PC can set the game to run in a 60 FPS mode, but you have to enable it yourself. Here’s how you can do that.
How to Enable 60 FPS Mode in Sonic Frontiers
First off, this option will only be available on Xbox Series consoles, PlayStation 5, and PC. Sonic Frontiers will run at 30 FPS on last-gen consoles and the Nintendo Switch.
To denable 60 FPS in Sonic Frontiers, you have to access the Options menu. This will first come up when starting a new game. You can check out the game settings like starting speed, sound options, and graphics. Go to the Graphics menu and head all the way to the bottom.
Under the Subtitle display, there is a Graphics Quality option. On consoles, there are only two options. There’s the 4K mode which is turned on by default. What you’re looking for is 60 FPS mode. The 60 FPS mode makes your game run at 60 frames in 1080p.
Unfortunately, there is no 4K 60 FPS mode, most likely due to some technical restraints, but he game will still run and look just as well in 60 FPS at 1080p. Besides, in a game like Sonic where you’re going to be running, dashing, and grinding at breakneck speeds, you do not want your frame rate to be anything below 60.
Sonic Frontiers will just play better overall at 60 frames. Having to turn corners on the fly or during intense sequences may look more cinematic at 30, but the feel at 60 is what really makes the game shine.
Sonic Frontiers is available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
