How to Play The Last of Us 2 at 60FPS
To enable 60FPS in the Last of Us 2, all players have to do is go into settings and navigate to the display screen. Here, they will see a new toggle option that allows them to flip between 30FPS (resolution mode) or 60FPS (performance mode). This option is only available when playing on the PS5.
While the PS5 does offer higher frame-rate and faster loading when playing The Last of Us 2 from it’s SSD, it’s also important to note that this isn’t a native PS5 port. All these improvements are unlocked via backwards compatibility. This means that there is still potentially more room for improvement should Naughty Dog ever release an actual PS5 port. There is no news whether they plan to, but they did close off their blog post with the following statement about working on the PS5.
The team has been digging into the PS5 hardware and the possibilities it unlocks since launch last year and we’re excited about what the future holds. This patch is just the first step of working on the PS5. We’ll let you know when we’ve got more news to share!
Perhaps they mean their next game, but there is also the faction mode that they are developing for The Last of Us 2. Chances are, we will see that at least available on the PS5.
