Internet Griping About Major Fallout 4 PS4 Frame Rate Issues
Bethesda and PlayStation hardware don't always get along.
I think we all remember the frame rate issues we experienced in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and it appears those issues may have returned (unfortunately) in this week's Fallout 4.
In addition to a variety of leaked gameplay and footage, we're hearing some feedback from those who have already played the game. And as summarized here, the frame rate in the PS4 version can take a serious dive. They've been talking about it in the NeoGAF forums, where two users have posted video evidence of significant slowdown. The game seems to stutter worse when inside buildings, when the frame rate can dip well below 30 FPS. Worse, the frame rate falls when using a gun scope, which of course impacts gameplay.
Industry insider Tidux claims the frame rate can fall into the single digits and even shared a video on Twitter, apparently taken directly from his PS4. That video has since disappeared, however. We have heard the issues persist even after update 1.01 and the Day One patch have been installed.
This isn't good news for Fallout fans but perhaps these are exaggerated reports...
