Get ready to see gaming action on YouTube as you've never seen it before -- in 60 frames per second! That's right, YouTube will soon give you the option of uploading game footage that renders at 60fps, which is double the previous 30fps rendering cap. Game developers and publishers are stoked at the announcement because it means they can offer viewers a more true representation of how their games will flow.

"Your video game footage with crazy high frame rates will soon look as awesome on YouTube as it does when you’re playing, when we launch support for 48 and even 60 frames per second in the coming months," YouTube announced in a blog post.

Battlefield Hardline 60fps and a HOT LZ

There's already some preview footage available in the YT Creator Channel (make sure you're watching in HD). In addition, EA's Visceral Games posted a trailer for its upcoming Battlefield Hardline game in its native frame rate. Have a look:



Battlefield Hardline represents a deviation from the typical Battlefield experience. It's more cops-and-robbers than anything else as police engage in a war on crime. You'll have access to military-grade weapons and vehicles such as the UH-60 Blackhawk, along with police equipment like tasers and handcuffs. The game is due to arrive on October 21, 2014.

As of right now, the option to upload videos in 60fps isn't available, though keep checking back as it should be implemented soon.

I hope that's not directed at console users!

For some reason I thought YouTube handled 60 FPS already. At least, I guess it could handle 60 FPS uploads, but then would convert it (I swear I've uploaded 60 FPS video before...)

I have a 20mb internet but still get to much buffering on 1080p

Never been happier to be a PC gamer where this is actually useful.

Yeah bout time! Though now it seems a good time as any to start doing some YT production. Maybe create a channel...
Hmmm Good to see they are putting support for gamers.

 

That leads us to:

Is Youtube and Twitch really a bad c-c-combo?

At long last, games like Dark Souls 2 (PC) and other fast-paced content can be properly previewed on Youtube...

I wonder when second-screen interactions will be considered for Youtube (or even very controversial web encryption capabilities the W3C is considering making a standard)...
