Bethesda’s new update for Fallout 76 has the game running on 60 FPS on PS5s as well as a performance boost on Series X. The developer continuously updates Fallout 76, often introducing significant updates accompanied by major content drops. These content drops typically coincide with the end of a season, bringing about substantial changes for players in the game.
Recently, players experienced a significant content drop through Update 44 for Fallout 76. This update marks the beginning of Season 13 and brings a plethora of new content to the game. Additionally, the update addresses various system fixes that enhance the overall gameplay experience, as detailed in the patch notes.
Interestingly, it appears that Bethesda included an unexpected addition in the update. Several PlayStation players have reported that the latest update enables the PS5 version of the game to run at 60 FPS.
Redditors find out about Fallout 76’s hidden FPS boost
u/BOSS_ZOMBIE recently shared a Reddit post announcing that Fallout 76 now runs at 60 frames per second (FPS) on the PlayStation 5. Previously, console players were limited to 30 FPS, but it seems that this has changed. Many users commented on the post, confirming that they also noticed the difference on their PlayStation 5 consoles.
It’s worth noting that Fallout 76 already runs at 60 FPS on the Xbox Series X, thanks to the FPS boost feature available for some time. However, today’s update appears to have addressed some of the issues that fans noticed with FPS Boost, particularly related to a reduction in resolution on the Xbox Series X.
This upgrade represents a significant improvement for players enjoying Fallout 76 on both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. While there is no confirmation yet regarding whether the game runs at 60 FPS on the PS4 or Xbox One, at least the current-generation consoles have received this enhancement.
