Mafia 3 – Update will add support for higher framerates, post-launch PC improvements planned [UPDATE]

Hangar 13 has issued an official statement about the state of Mafia 3’s PC version. According to the development team, an update will add support for higher framerates. Although there isn’t any ETA, Hangar 13 aims to release this patch very soon.

As the development team noted:

“We are currently working on an update for PC that will give players the option to play Mafia III at higher framerates. We’ll share more details about the update, and when you can expect it to arrive, very soon. In the meantime, the team welcomes feedback and would like to hear from you about what performance adjustment options are important to you. We’re actively considering a number of additional post-launch improvements on PC that would give players more control over how they can tailor the game’s experience to suit their rig’s performance.”

As a result of that, our PC Performance Analysis will be slightly delayed in order to give the team enough time to polish the game. After all, this is something we’ve done for several games that were released in a really mediocre state.

For the time being, we strongly suggest avoiding the game until Hangar 13 releases this PC patch!

UPDATE:

According to the development team, a patch that will add an option for 30fps, 60fps and unlimited fps to Mafia 3 may be released this weekend.

“We currently have a patch running here at the studio that includes 30, 60, and unlimited frames-per-second options in the video menu, among other improvements for the PC version of Mafia III. We’re verifying the patch now to ensure everything is working as expected. If everything goes well, we expect the update to go live this weekend. We will be keeping the PC community up-to-date on the status of the patch throughout the weekend and thank you for all the feedback!”
