The Last Guardian

Fumito Ueda’s flawed-gem The Last Guardian might have taken ten years and an entire console generation to release,  but the PS4 exclusive didn’t run particularly well upon its release back in 2016.

As with multiple other current-gen games running on next-gen hardware,  The Last Guardian has been given a new lease on life with PlayStation 5 as players will now be able to experience the underrated gem at a full 60fps on PS5.

With the increased CPU and GPU power of the PlayStation 5 over that of both PS4 and PS4 Pro, the infamously unstable PS4 exclusive now runs at a full 60fps for owners of a standard PS5. However, those with a PS5 Digital Edition are out of luck.

Unfortunately for Digital Edition owners, The Last Guardian is only playable at a full 60fps through the use of the game’s disc. Reported by Eurogamer, the PS4 exclusive launched with a completely unlocked framerate but was later patched to lock to 30fps.

Much like with Assassin’s Creed Unity on Xbox Series X, only those with access to the launch build of the game will be able to play the game at a doubled framerate, unless an enhancement comes along in the future. Thank God for game preservation.
