Horizon Forbidden West 60 FPS performance mode confirmed for PlayStation 5

If you prefer to have a smoother frame rate than most fidelity visuals, the Horizon Forbidden West PS5 features a 60 fps performance mode.

The choice between quality mode and performance mode is common for new-gen titles, and in an interview with game director Mathiez de Jong hardware zone, Horizon Forbidden West also confirmed that players can switch between the two. Forbidden West recently ran the game for 14 minutes of gameplay video in quality mode, 4K resolution, and play at 30 frames per second.

The display mode increases your frame rate to 60 frames per second, and De Jong did not specify what resolution Forbidden West would target for this option. Most games with performance mode use dynamic resolution to reduce your pixel count in more demanding scenes, to keep the frame rate constant, and Horizon Forbidden West does the same.

It’s a lot to get excited about, and ideally, we’ll still get to play by the end of this year. PlayStation Studios boss Hermen Hulst (who was previously studio head at Guerilla) was optimistic about the Horizon Forbidden West holiday 2021 release window, but he did caution that it still “isn’t quite certain” as complications from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to impact various parts of the production.

Even though it appears PlayStation is once again skipping out on E3 2021, it’s already had plenty of news to share in the weeks ahead of the event, including a God of War 2 delay and confirmed PS4 version, and similar news for Gran Turismo 7.
