The PlayStation 5’s backwards compatibility turned out to be a much better feature than some parts of the Internet expected, to the point where it is actively improving PlayStation 4 titles with improved frame rates and increase resolution. One such title is The Last Guardian, along with Assassin’s Creed Unity, can actually run at 60 fps on the next generation console. There is one tricky point, however: this is only possible with a real copy of the game.
Proven by YouTuber NX Gamer, an unpatched version of Famito Ueda’s PS4 project will run at 60FPS instead of half what if you had already downloaded the updates – it seems very close to speed as well. Frame level is locked. This is because patches with pre-1.00 experience introduce The Last Guardian’s lock frame rate limit to 30, which means you can’t get past that metric despite the PS5’s native power. So if you’ve ever wanted to play the game at double the frame rate all you need to do is grab a physical copy of The Last Guardian and install it when Sony’s next system launches. . Just don’t download any patches or updates and you’ll be good to go.
Unfortunately, this can’t happen with the digital version as you’ll automatically download the latest version of the game. There doesn’t seem to be a way to overcome that at the time of writing. So, are you headed to Amazon to buy a real copy of The Last Guardian so you can experience Trico in 60FPS? Let us know in the comments below.
