Remedy Entertainment has released the performance patch for Control updating the game to version 1.03 on PS4. This should resolve performance issues and more.
Remedy Entertainment had confirmed that Control will get an update that would improve its performance. This should apply to the console version which didn’t offer a stable frame-rate. As we have covered in our review, while Control is a good game, the performance of it on consoles was a mixed bag.
