Need for Speed Payback will run at 4K and 30 FPS on Xbox One X

Same for PS4 Pro

According to Need for Speed Payback producer Jeremy Chubb, Payback will run at 1080p with a 30 FPS framerate on the standard Xbox One and PS4 models, and 4K with a 30 FPS framerate on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro.

It’s unclear if these benchmarks exist because the game has to hit parity across Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, since Microsoft’s flagship racer Forza Motorsport 7 can hit 4K/60 on the Xbox One X. Need for Speed Payback is apparently being developed with the upgraded consoles in mind, so it’s possible that Ghost Games will not be taking full advantage of the Xbox One X.

We’ll update this story as it develops.
