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

I wasn't a huge fan of FC6 though. It was the first one I actually felt disappointed in.

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):
