The news that Hellblade 2 will run at 30fps on Xbox Series X|S has sparked a conversation about performance preferences, and opinions on games being capped at 30fps. For this week's poll, we'd like to know: Do you care about framerates in games like Hellblade 2?
Taking the most recent example of Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, then: it's coming to Xbox Series X|S as one of the most anticipated upcoming Xbox exclusives, and will run at 30fps with a dynamic resolution. While PC players will be able to boost the frame rate, there won't be graphics modes on Xbox Series X|S. On the one hand, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was a triumph and it's likely that Hellblade 2 will reach its own level of excellence. The news about its performance might not be too off-putting for fans who have been waiting a long time to get their hands on the sequel, especially when these games are known for their slow-building, rich atmospheres. On the other hand, the news was met with disappointment from a lot of players who share the opinion that 60fps and performance modes are typically expected when considering an Xbox Series X|S exclusive, which isn't targeting last-gen consoles.

Hellblade 2 will doubtless be wonderful either way, but for this week's poll, we want to know: Do you care about framerates in games like Hellblade 2?
