A few weeks ago, we reported that Borderlands 3 ran at 4K resolution on Xbox One X and supported variable refresh rates (VRR) over FreeSync. The only question that remained was what the frame rate was clocked at. We were finally able to get an answer at the Borderlands 3 Gameplay Reveal which took place this week. According to Gearbox Software's producer Chris Brock, the team is aiming for 60 frames per second (FPS) on Xbox One X. Unfortunately, the base console will be locked to 30 FPS.

While Brock wouldn't commit to a final frame rate, he added that the developer was trying to let players choose between performance and graphics on Xbox One X. This probably means that you'll be able to choose between 4K 30 FPS and 1080p 60 FPS. However, the resolution of the performance mode may be higher. As Borderlands 3 is still in active development, these figures aren't set in stone. We'll have a better picture closer to September when the game launches.

Xbox One will be 30 FPS. Xbox One X we're shooting for 60 FPS, but we'll do what we can. We intend to offer favor fidelity and favor performance-type options. Yes, 4K on Xbox One X.

It's great to see that Gearbox is working on bringing 60 FPS gameplay to Xbox One X. Hopefully this will make its way to the final build of the game.
