A Plague Tale: Requiem’s Performance Mode Is Live, with Enhanced Graphics for PC Plus 60 FPS Mode for PS5 & Xbox Series X!
PARIS — May 10, 2023 — Today Focus Entertainment and Asobo Studio are thrilled to announce the release of a new patch for A Plague Tale: Requiem, the critically praised and multi-award-winning action-adventure game. Out now, the game’s new update brings a Performance Mode that includes a 60 FPS option for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, as well as additional options to optimize graphical performance on PC.
A Plague Tale: Requiem takes you on a breathtaking, emotional adventure through a dangerous medieval world twisted by supernatural forces. The sense of history and strong narrative direction are complemented with intense stealth and action gameplay, now enjoyable at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X with the new Performance Mode.
The 60 FPS option entails lower graphical settings: PS5 and Xbox Series X players can thus choose default Resolution Mode settings to fully enjoy the graphical excellence of A Plague Tale: Requiem; or the Performance Mode that scales the graphical resolution down, instead enhancing the gameplay sequences with even smoother action at 60 FPS.
Today’s new patch also adds options for PC players, allowing them to optimize the game’s graphical performance. All platforms, Xbox Series S included, will receive several bug fixes with the update. The game’s Cloud Version on Nintendo Switch will receive an update including these bug fixes next week.
A Plague Tale: Requiem has received profuse praise from critics and players since its launch, and we are thrilled to deploy Performance Mode for players to enjoy Amicia and Hugo’s adventure the way they prefer. The game has won several awards and nominations, including:
