Compatibility behind the PlayStation 5 has turned out to be a better feature than expected in some parts of the Internet, where it is actively improving PlayStation 4 titles with frame rate improvements and resolution boosts. One such title is The Last Guardian, which, along with Assassin’s Creed Unity, could actually run at 60 frames-per-second on the next-gen console. There is a catch, though: this is only possible with a physical copy of the game.
Demonstrated by YouTuber NX Gamer, The unavailable version of Femito Ueda’s PS4 project will run at more than half 60fps if you’ve downloaded the updates – it’s very close to the locked frame rate. This is because the patches that experience a 1.00 represent a framerate cap that locates the Last Guardian from 30, meaning you can’t push that state back despite the PS5’s original power. So, if you ever wanted to play the game on a double framerate, all you have to do is get The Last Guardian’s physical grab and install it after Sony’s next system arrives. Just don’t download any patches or updates and you should go.
Unfortunately, this is not possible with the digital version because you automatically download the latest version of the game. There seems to be no way to get around it at the time of writing. So, are you heading to Amazon for a physical copy of The Last Guardian so you can experience Trico at 60 fps? Let us know in the comments below.
