In a report from GamingBolt, EA Canada creative director Brian Hayes confirms that EA Sports UFC will run at 1080p and will be rendered at 30 FPS with motion blur.
The game itself will be running at 60 FPS, but it will output at 30 FPS with motion blur to keep things looking good. Hayes is quoted as saying the majority of people in a focus test preferred the 30fps with motion blur. It's possible the game simply doesn't look that good at 60 FPS because there is less room for error with the animations when you crank the framerate up that high.
Hayes said, "we discovered that 60 FPS didn’t have a hugely beneficial impact on gameplay, but motion blur had an enormous impact on visual quality."
