Red Dead Redemption 2 Gets An Unofficial 60 FPS Patch For PlayStation 5

Experience Arthur's chronicles with a smoother experience.

Story Highlights

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 now has an unofficial 60 FPS patch for PlayStation 5 by the modder illusion.
  • The patch is unusable on a standard PS5 and requires a hacked console.

After many years of patience, Red Dead Redemption 2 can finally be played at 60 FPS on the PlayStation 5. The entry was previously held back at 30 FPS only on the console, making it quite difficult for users to adapt to the otherwise gorgeous gameplay with a hearty story. The modder @illusion0002 has achieved the feat, who also recently created a 60 FPS patch for Bloodborne on the PlayStation 5.

The major setback in the room is that players need a hacked PlayStation 5 to relish Red Dead Redemption 2 at 60 FPS. It is impossible to reach 60 FPS through official means on the current-gen console unless Rockstar Games steps in and implements an official patch. The modder illusion also made RDR 2 playable at 60 FPS on the PlayStation 4 earlier this year, which was quite a staggering success.

The video by the YouTuber Modded Warfare takes a detailed look at both the Bloodborne and Red Dead Redemption 2 60 FPS patches made by the modder. It tests the frame rates and shows a ton of stats to shed light on the quality of the patches.

While the large inflow of RDR2 fan requests for a 60 FPS patch was not officially heeded, the modder has finally made it possible to enjoy the game with a smooth-sailing experience on the hacked PlayStation 5 consoles. Although we do not condone hacking your PS5 consoles, it can potentially come with many risks that are not worth it.

Fans have questioned why the devs could not add the notable fix and an official PS5 Red Dead Redemption 2 release when a modder carries the mantle out of nowhere. The gamers also called out the devs begrudgingly for announcing an allegedly “lazy” Red Dead Redemption rerelease port for the Switch and PS4. The release features no upgrade and a huge price instead of a remaster that has been awaited for a long time.

The exhilarating sequel to Red Dead Redemption has stood out as among the best games ever created in decades for consoles and PC alike. It bagged another milestone last year, hitting a new all-time high concurrent player peak on Steam. The feat shows its worth in contrast to the latest AAA titles. The release of all the noteworthy mods has also made it an absolute pleasure for users to replay RDR2 a plethora of times again.
