PS4 games that need a PS5 update

To be clear, a lot of PS4 games have been updated to run better on PS5. Check out the following guide for a list of PS4 games that take advantage of the PS5’s Game Boost function:

There are still PS4 games that need a PS5 patch. In this PS5 guide, we’re going to list some of our favourite PS4 games that haven’t yet been optimised for PS5, meaning that either their frame-rate is stuck at 30, or their resolution is in need of enhancement.

Highlights

  • Frame-rate: Capped at 30

  • Bloodborne.

Let’s start with the obvious, shall we? Bloodborne is a certified PS4 classic, and quite frankly, it’s a damned disgrace that it still hasn’t been updated for PS5. Rumours of a remaster or even a remake have been doing the rounds for years, but honestly, a relatively simple 60fps patch would suit us fine. Now listen, we know that Bloodborne has some weird frame-rate issues — problems that mean simply uncapping the frame-rate isn’t an option — but modders have already found ways around this. It would take a bit of effort, then, but come on — Bloodborne at 60fps would be a dream come true.

Resolution: 1080p

LittleBigPlanet 3.

Frame-rate: Capped at 30

Resolution: 1080p While you could argue that the rather good Sackboy: A Big Adventure largely fills the LittleBigPlanet-shaped hole on PS5, it would still be nice to have the expansive platformer fully updated on Sony’s newest system. Even today, LittleBigPlanet 3 has a lot to offer in terms of user-made content, and being able to explore such a rich tapestry of levels at a higher frame-rate would make it all much more appealing. A resolution boost wouldn’t go amiss, either.

Assassin’s Creed Origins. Frame-rate: Capped at 30

Resolution: Dynamic 1800p Assassin’s Creed Origins was the change in gameplay formula that Ubisoft’s series desperately needed when it released in 2017, and many fans would argue that it’s still the best open world Assassin’s Creed game. Its Egyptian setting is eye-catchingly excellent, and it’s got an addictive RPG structure. The only problem is that it’s capped at 30fps.

Frame-rate: Capped at 30 Resolution: 1080p

Alien: Isolation Fortunately, there is reason to believe that Ubisoft might update Origins. Its sequel, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, got a 60fps PS5 patch, and that game now runs like a dream on Sony’s current-gen system. Let’s hope that Origins gets the same treatment.
