The Last of Us 2 PS5 Patch Adds Boosted Framerate Target

The Last of Us 2 PS5 version improves the framerate, and gives you options between 30fps and 60fps.

The Last of Us 2 PS5 patch is live now, Naughty Dog announced in a new PlayStation Blog post.

It adds a new framerate target of 60fps, but you'll need the game installed on your PS5 for it to work. The TLOU 2 PS5 patch won't work if you've got it installed on an external hard drive and, obviously, won't work if it's on your PS4.

The patch adds a new option under the game's display menu, where you can choose to target 30fps or target 60fps. This is in addition to the already available improvements on PS5, including the usual faster load times and such.

As of now, that's all Naughty Dog is doing for The Last of Us 2 on PS5 and with PS5 in general, but the blog post closes with a tease of more Naughty Dog PS5 games to come.

It reads: 

The team has been digging into the PS5 hardware and the possibilities it unlocks since launch last year and we’re excited about what the future holds. This patch is just the first step of working on the PS5. We’ll let you know when we’ve got more news to share!

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
