Lead renderer programmer at ID Software, Tiago Sousa from his twitter account has confirmed that the forthcoming DOOM will have unlocked frame rates per second on PC, which means that players will be playing on 60 or above frames per second on PC.
Currently, the game’s beta is running maximum at locked 60 frames per second. DOOM’s beta was certainly criticized for fps limit and frame rate drop. Gladly, the team has looked into the reviews submitted by gamers via Steam and seems to be working on it.
A follower on Twitter asked Sousa the reason that unlocked frame rates was expected and it had been featuring since past 20 years. For which, Sousa stated that it occurred due to technical problem with the previous engine and these ‘enginiering’ takes time.
@BlacerPC not relegated – technical debt on this from prev engine was fairly encrusted + engeniering takes time, this is not macdonalds ^^

Yesterday, it was announced via twitter that Open Beta for DOOM has been extended by one day, so that fans can get the chance to play it. Although, many users on Steam submitted negative reviews, maybe due to some issues which they faced.
Let’s hope for a bug-free DOOM. The game is set for release on May 13th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates!
