It is likely instead that users will get the choice of framerate or visual appearance, with a slider moving to one or the other depending on preference.

Black Ops Cold War have finally done it, so it seems other games are catching up on the trend.

FOV Sliders are no longer a PC exclusive!

The adjustable Field of View slider will allow players to select the size of the viewing angle, making more or less of the area in front of the player visible.

Inevitably, more textures on-screen will place a larger load on the hardware.
