The Last Guardian Runs at 60 FPS On PS5 Through Backward Compatibility
The Last Guardian is one of the games that has benefited from the backward compatibility support offered for PS5 and runs at 60 FPS.
According to a new video by NXGamer, which examines backward compatible games, The Last Guardian benefits from the improved PS5 hardware by running at 60 FPS in 4K resolution mode.

In the video, at around 11:40 mark, The Last Guardian footage is shown on a PS4 along with a PS5. In the video comparison, the frame rate counter clearly indicates that the game now runs at 60 FPS.
This was a major surprise because it was originally thought that the game has a locked 30 FPS limit, even on the PS4 Pro. It offers two different visual modes, Fidelity and Performance. According to NXGamer, the game now runs at 60 FPS with a higher than 1080p resolution.
The Last Guardian is one of the games that will be a part of the PS Plus Collection available for the PS5. It will be available to play through the collection from November 12.
Other games that NXGamer has showcased in his analysis include Days Gone, Until Dawn, and Ghost of Tsushima. Most of these were already confirmed to run at 60 FPS or an unlocked frame rate so their inclusion here is not a big surprise.

As far as The Last Guardian is concerned, there have been videos by other outlets that suggested that the game runs at locked 30 FPS, but perhaps this is not the case for the disc version which apparently runs at an unlocked frame rate.
