It’s news you love to hear, as it’s been confirmed that Sucker Punch’s samurai epic Ghost of Tsushima will run at 60FPS on PS5.
The news was confirmed by the developers on Twitter after Sony revealed new details on its upcoming console and how it’ll run PS4 games.
According to Sony, most PS4 games will be playable on PS5, and some will have the support of Game Boost, which will enable you to unlock the best features and frame rates possible.
“Select PS4 titles will see increased loading speeds on the PS5 console, and will also leverage Game Boost, offering improved or more stable frame rates,” said Sony in a blog post.
“Some titles with unlocked frame rates or dynamic resolution up to 4K may see higher fidelity. Additionally, PS4 games will also take advantage of some of PS5’s new UX features, but more to come on that later.”
Following the announcement, Sucker Punch confirmed that Ghost of Tsushima would be one of the games which will benefit from Game Boost.
Sucker Punch tweeted: “PS5 owners playing with Game Boost will see an extra option to allow frame rates up to 60FPS, and while loading speeds on the PS4 are already great, just wait until you see them on the PS5!”
Sucker Punch then went on to confirm that you’ll also be able to transfer your PS4 Ghost of Tsushima save file over to PS5, meaning you won’t have to start from the beginning (unless you wanted to, of course). Hooray!
Although PS5 won’t be backwards compatible beyond PS4 games, it’s definitely good to know that some of the current console’s most memorable games will be playable on PS4 from day one, with added features and bonuses.
If you’ve maxed out your budget on the console itself, at least you’ll still have something to play!
