Killer Instinct now supports monitors that are above 60Hz

 

When Killer Instinct Season 3 launched on PC the game had a fundamental flaw, that PC users who had monitors with refresh rates above 60Hz would be running the game at an increased speed.

Most fighting games have certain aspects of the game tied to the framerate, allowing players to have frame perfect counters, attacks and give the fighting system some additional depth, but most fighting games will limit the framerate to 60Hz in order to prevent any of these potential issues.

Killer Instinct Season 3 launched on PC exclusively as a Windows UWP title, with the game's max refresh rate is limited to the maximum monitor refresh rate, meaning that the game automatically runs at framerates that are higher than 60FPS on 120Hz and 144Hz monitors, forcing the game to run at higher than standard speeds. 

Now with the games new patch the game now boast "improved support for monitors with refresh rates higher than 60hz", which is really something that really shouldn't have been overlooked for the PC release.

Right now we do not know how they have improved support for 60+Hz monitors, but it is expected that the developers simply limited the maximum refresh rate to 60FPS.

Great thing for the free players is that the free character rotates each week so you arent stuck playing the same one for eternity.Quote
