A Plague Tale: Requiem has been a massive success for the developers, and the game was recently verified for Steam Deck. The game can be played on Valve’s Handheld without any issues, but many fans are still asking for a 60FPS console mode.
The developers have now addressed this demand, releasing a 60 FPS update. A Plague Tale Requiem now supports 60 FPS on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Why it matters: The latest work from Asobo Studio was well received, but it saw criticism for its lack of 60FPS at launch.

A Plague Tale: Requiem sold over one million copies in two weeks and became the third most popular game on Game Pass. However, it targeted only 40 FPS on consoles in 120Hz mode.
As the game is now in better shape with the new 60FPS performance mode, it is the best opportunity to try it right now if you still have not played it. A job listing has also pointed toward a possible follow-up of the game, so fans can enjoy the story before the potential third game.
Interestingly, the update has been released for Xbox Series X and PS5. This leaves the weaker Microsoft console, Xbox Series S. As such, it is possible that the developer may not have been able to achieve 60FPS with the Xbox Series S.
However, an update for the Xbox Series S could also be released at a later date.
This latest update could increase the game’s popularity even more, as some players might have skipped the game due to FPS issues at launch. While the launch performance may have been disappointing, Asobo Studio has addressed these issues well.
Fans can expect performance breakdowns in the coming days to learn more about the game’s performance with the 60FPS mode on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
