A Plague Tale Requiem Frame Rate Targets 60fps on PS5 & Xbox Series X
Update: A Plague Tale: Requiem targets 40fps if the game is played in 120Hz mode, while it is indeed capped at 30fps in 60Hz mode, as was originally claimed.
Contrary to prior information, A Plague Tale Requiem targets a frame rate of 60fps on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
It was claimed earlier on Twitter by an individual with early access to A Plague Tale Requiem that both the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions are capped at a frame rate of 30fps. However, it was later refuted by others early copies of the game that this is not the case, and the game targets a frame rate of 60fps.
That said, there are occasions of frame rate dips, even with the day one patch installed. As such, it’s not quite a stable 60fps, but well above the 30fps cap that it was previously claimed to have applied.
A Plague Tale: Requiem is an upcoming action-adventure stealth game developed by Asobo Studio and published by Focus Entertainment. It is the follow-up to 2019’s A Plague Tale: Innocence. The game follows the story of siblings Amicia and Hugo de Rune as they search for a treatment for Hugo’s blood disease in Southern France while evading Inquisition soldiers and swarms of rats carrying the black plague. On October 18, 2022, the game will be made available for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X and Series S.
Requiem is an action-adventure game played in third person, much like its predecessor. In the game, the player controls Amicia, who must battle both French Inquisition soldiers and swarms of rats that are dispersing the black plague. Though the combat system has been greatly expanded, the gameplay is largely unchanged from the first game.
Amicia is armed with a crossbow that she can use to easily take down armored foes as well as a knife to stab enemies and a sling for throwing rocks. Rocks, pots for throwing, and crossbow bolts can all be mixed with alchemical mixtures. The game adds tar, which expands the light source’s radius and can be used to ignite enemies, in addition to Ignifer and Extinguis, which let players start and put out flames, respectively.
