The Xbox One model of Name of Obligation: Ghosts now not sports activities the buttery-smooth framerate that the franchise is thought for.
On Jan. 28, Ghosts developer Infinity Ward up to date the Xbox One model of its hit navy shooter. The patch added some new multiplayer sport sorts, mounted some minor points, and — apparently — prompted the sport to now not preserve 60 frames per second.

Many video games do that 30 to 60 instances each second, which might imply a sport is producing 30 to 60 frames per second. The Name of Obligation franchise has lengthy impressed avid gamers with the technically spectacular feat of all the time sustaining 60 frames per second.
