Mafia 3 limited to 30 frames per second on PC, but update coming soon [Update]

Update: 2K has issued an updated statement with more details on when we can expect the patch to arrive.

"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!"

Original Story: Mafia 3 will be limited to 30 frames per second on PC when it releases tomorrow, but developer Hangar 13 and publisher 2K are already working on a way to let players give that number a boost.

"We know how important having options that best suit your PC's performance capabilities are," reads a message posted on Mafia 3's website. "The team has been hard at work ensuring that Mafia III's performance is consistent across all platforms, and right now the game runs at a solid 30 frames-per-second. 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."

Mafia 3, which casts you in the role of a member of the Black Mob in New Orleans circa 1960s, launches for Xbox One and PS4 tomorrow, October 7.
