Rise Of The Ronin Reportedly Suffers From An Unstable Frame Rate In Performance Mode

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Team Ninja’s PS5 action role-playing game, Rise of the Ronin, suffers from an unstable frame rate in Performance mode, based on the latest information.

According to YouTuber Skill Up, who has early access to the upcoming Rise of the Ronin, the game struggles to maintain its target frame rate of 60 fps in its Performance mode, dipping into the 40s. Those who will play the game on VRR displays will get a relatively smoother experience, though given the PS5’s minimum VRR threshold being at 48 Hz, dips in frame rate below this value will remain an issue. It is also mentioned that cutscenes tend to exhibit judder, likely due to frame pacing issues.

Hope is not lost, however, as Rise of the Ronin is set to receive a series of performance patches before its release on March 22, 2024, as per the embargo document. However, its hard to say what kind of an improvement can be expected, and only time will tell whether the game’s performance will see a noteworthy improvement. Team Ninja’s game engine has struggled with console performance in the past, with games like Nioh, Nioh2, and Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty having noticeable dips in frame rate at launch.

The aforementioned review embargo for Rise of the Ronin is expected to be lifted on Thursday, March 21, 2024, which is a day ahead of the game’s launch. Fans can, therefore, look forward to hearing soon what critics have to say about the 19th century tale of the Boshin war.

Additionally, the pre-load for Rise of the Ronin is expected to go live on PlayStation Network today on March 15, 2024, a week prior to the game’s launch. It will come with the latest update i.e. version 1.001.001, pre-installed for those who pre-ordered a digital copy of the game, though a day one update may be rolled out closer to the game’s release. Those who purchased the game on disc will need to download the day one update. Meanwhile, the download size of Rise of the Ronin is a hefty 96.343 GB.
