Red Dead Redemption’s PS4 Version Adds A 60 FPS Mode For PS5 Consoles

It’s been less than two months since Red Dead Redemption’s PS4 and Nintendo Switch launch, but it seems the game’s Reddit community has noticed a new welcomed feature has been added in the most recent 1.03 update specifically for PlayStation users only.

Alongside bug/stability fixes in the update, Rockstar had added the option for owners of the PS4 version to play the game at 60 FPS, but similar to other past PS4 games, Red Dead Redemption‘s “double the frames” mode is only playable through backwards compatibility on PS5 consoles. There’s not a lot of fanfare with this new feature in the display mode, but hey, I’ll take the chance to play the 2010 original at a smooth 60 fps now.

Red Dead Redemption first launched on PS3 and Xbox 360 all the way back on May 18th, 2010 and was (much) later released on PS4 and Nintendo Switch on August 17th of this year. The 2023 version launched at 30 FPS, which led to fan backlash due to a high “commercially accurate” price tag of $50 and a lack of modern features.

Red Dead Redemption is also currently playable on Xbox Series X|S through backwards compatibility of the Xbox 360 version. Although, after all these years, the game still hasn’t made its way to PC.
