Far Cry 5 Gets a PlayStation 5 Patch Adding Native 60fps

Richard Walker

Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 5 has today received a free patch for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, bumping up the game's frame rate to 60fps. The 60-frames-per-second boost applies to every one of Far Cry 5's modes, including the campaign, co-op, Arcade, and the game's DLC.

Set within rural Hope County, Montana, Far Cry 5 has you facing a fanatical doomsday cult known as Eden's Gate, led by Joseph Seed and his family. Together with a few locals, you'll band together to mount an uprising against Seed and his cult, wreaking chaos or adopting stealthy tactics.

The new patch is available as part of a fifth anniversary celebration for Far Cry 5, with the game turning five-years-old on 27th March. Coinciding with the update is a Far Cry 5 free weekend, live from 23rd to 27th March across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, as well as a limited-time 85% off the full game.

  • Nice! Tried this game a couple of months ago but couldn't really get into it because of the frame rate, it felt extremely clunky and slow. Excited to try it again.
  • 60 fps years later XD
  • Shame it's not a full PS5 upgrade, wouldn't mind seeing all the trophies pop again XD
  • Damn, I was hoping it was a full upgrade so I could platinum it again. I know people shit on Far Cry games, but I enjoy them.

    I wasn't a huge fan of FC6 though. It was the first one I actually felt disappointed in.
  • @1 The framerate haulted your playthrough? You are aware that movies are actually less than 30fps, right?

    I have been telling performance snobs this for years. That said, watching a film at 24fps vs. playing a game at 24fps is a different experience.

    30fps does not hinder my experience in any way. I'm currently playing a PS4 game that's capped at 30-31fps, and though I obviously can tell the difference between a native PS5 game running at flawless 60fps, it does not affect my enjoyment at all.

    Likewise, I'd wager most of the people bitching about anything less that 60 played games a far lower frame rates, and LOVED IT. For years.

    Anyway, this is an interesting comparison video using GTAV as an example:

    Lastly, it is super weird to see a film scene shot at 24fps rendered to 60fps. For me, it just looks "fake" and unnatural (unlike a game running at 60fps):
  • @5 Interacting with a medium and watching a medium is two very different things.
  • FC6 STILL needs a FOV slider for PS5. I hate how shitty it looks with the 75 degree angle.
  • @ apabi ... What you say is true, BUT ... the people complaining about anything less than 60fps have been "interacting with mediums" at 30 or less for longer than they have been at 60.
