While it won’t be long before Final Fantasy fans get to experience Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade on the PS5, it seems that the PS4 version of the game has received an unofficial mod, giving us a taste of 60fps (frames-per-second). Yep that’s right, there is now a unofficial Final Fantasy 7 Remake 60fps patch available!
Taking to their blog yet again, modder and scene researcher illusion0001 has published an all new method at achieving 60fps in the PS4 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Like the Uncharted 4 patch before it, this technique utilizes resolution reduction in order to increase the frame-rate to an uncapped 60fps. The results? Remarkably smooth.
According to illusion0001, the base PS4 runs at a dynamic resolution with targets of 720P and 540P.
Now if you are interested in running this yourself, you will unfortunately need a PS4 with a low enough firmware to support jailbreaking. Seeing that this is a modified patch, current up-to-date systems do not have any public known exploits to run it.
Even so, this is certainly a very interesting discovery made by illusion0001. However, while the experience does appear rather smooth we aren’t sure if the resolution hit is worth the cost. If it’s anything like the Uncharted 4 patch, expect to have a pretty eye watering experience.
