One of the most anticipated game of the year, Mafia 3 is out now. It is the third installment in the Mafia series. Mafia is know for its periodic setting, atmospheric environment and great storyline. However, the release of the game has not been able to please all the fan, as the game (PC version more specifically) apparently comes with a lot of issues.
2K games had put an embargo on reviews before the release and since then it was speculated that something is not quite right with the game. And it turned out to be true. The game has poor optimisation and a 30 fps lock and players are reporting to be having a hazy and poor gameplay.
2K games quickly acknowledged this issue and released a statement saying they are working in an update which will improve the fps issue
UPDATE [10/6 / 6PM PT]: 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!
As of 9th october they have released the patch , 2K has reported back to say it has a patch in the works now that includes 30, 60, and unlimited FPS options from the game’s video menu. There are “other improvements” for the PC version of Mafia III also included in this update.
PC players, reboot Mafia III because patch 1.01 is now available for download. This patch includes 30, 60, and unlimited frames-per-second options on PC. To select your frame rate, just head to the display menu in-game. Just make sure to tailor the frame rate settings to the power of your machine. This patch also includes improvements to keyboard remapping, so head to the controls menu to check out the options. Note: this patch resets keyboard mapping to default, so any changes you made to the controls previously will need to be customized after installing the patch.
