What´s the point of getting more than 60fps anyway?? Most of the monitors out there have a refresh rate of 60Hz. If you play a game with fps higher than 60 then you probably will get a horrible screen tearing. Not desired at all.

You can remove the vsync restriction if you're on Nvidia. Just go into 'Manage 3D Settings' in the control panel, find the game and change the Vsync option to adaptive. This also stops it cutting the frame rate in half if you dip below 60 as well.

It does not matter if games are locked at 60fps like Assassins Creed 4 so that is my question is watch dogs going to be locked at 60fps and that really worries me.

thats not true, 120hz and 144hz screens would give cleaner and smoother experience when gaming, 60 hz is an an old standard and most of screens are moving towards 120hz-144hz, though you wouldnt notice a much of a difference on anything above 100 hz, on the other hand, there is a huge difference between 60 and 100.

you would only get horrible screen tearing on anything above 60 ONLY IF your screen is limited to 60 hz, as long as your screen refresh rate equals or above produced FPS, then there is no screen tearing.

Anyway, to OP, no one knows but i hope its not locked as well, so your best bet is to wait until release.

It was locked because of the vsync method used. Change the method used you remove to lock.

Well, maybe they´re moving to 120Hz-144Hz, but for now the type of most of the 120-144Hz screens are TN, which means that the general quality is worse than the 60Hz Led screens( apart from being ridisculously expensive).

No official word on this... It might be easier to wait until the game is released. Let's not make any assumptions. :)

Why to get a TN panel while you can have an Asus 24" 144hz LED monitor for 250$, is that ridiculously expensive?

And its the most popular monitor among gamers and used with multiple screens setups. also there are 27 "WQHD korean monitors like Qnix and X-Star that are LED and use PLS/IPS panels from Samsung and LG and can be overclocked to 120 hz without issues only for 320-370$.

Anyway, this is not the point here, its about smoother experience on frames above 60, and believe it or not, many people have monitors above 60hz.

There should be an official word on this from Ubisoft about refresh rates higher than 60Hz.
