Mafia 3 finally releases today on all the platforms and the fans who were eagerly waiting to get their hands on the new action, crime will be able to play the game from today.

Surprisingly, some gamers who managed to get the game early reported that the game runs at solid 30 fps on the PC, which is not very common phenomenon for the PC gamers. People tried to change the display settings in order to check the increase in frame rates, yet it was ineffective.

Mafia 3 PC Patch May Release This Weekend

Some hours later, the publisher 2K Games and developer Hanger 13 officially confirmed the locked 30 frames on PC and announced that a patch is under development that will increase the frame rates for the PC platform (which is a good news). No specific release date for the PC update was revealed, but according to the blog update of Mafia game, it appears that the patch may get released this weekend.

The update notifies that a patch that runs the game at 30, 60 or higher fps is currently running fine at the studio and may get released ‘very soon’ if everything goes well. Here’s the post;

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!

While it was also announced that more number of post-game launch improvements will be released on the PC so they can have control over the game’s performance depending upon their systems.
