Hellpoint update 1.11 has been released, adding the ability to run the game at an unlocked frame-rate. While a next-gen version of Hellpoint is currently in the works, it would appear that a new update has given it the option to run the game at an unlock frame-rate on consoles.
Hellpoint Update 1.11 Patch Notes:
- Added option to unlock framerate in the main menu settings
We went ahead to test this out ourselves and while the notes state that there is an option in the menu, we ourselves could not locate it. However, upon turning the performance mode option on in the PS5 system settings we did notice an increase to the overall performance, something we originally took issue in our initial review. We aren’t sure if this performance boost is seen on the PS4 Pro version of the game, or on the Xbox Series X and S, though it’s definitely noticeable when running on PS5.
For those unaware, Hellpoint is due to receive a free next-gen upgrade sometimes in 2021. From the official details, the title will provide two modes, which are:
- Performance Mode – Dynamic 4K resolution at 60 frames per second on the PS5 and Xbox Series X
- Quality Mode – Native 4K resolution at 30 frames per second on the PS5 and Xbox Series X
Additionally load speeds will also be increased in the next-gen versions. Again, this will be completely free for those who own the current-gen version on either platforms.
