Most Of From Software’s Games Run At 60 FPS On PS5 and Xbox Series X

Nearly every game developed by From Software runs at a buttery-smooth 60 frames per second (FPS) on next-generation consoles. Be it Dark Souls or Sekrio, the famed studio’s catalog looks great on Sony and Microsoft’s new machines. With a couple irksome exceptions, that is.

The most well-received launch title for either console is undoubtedly Demon’s Souls, the remake of From Software’s seminal action RPG that catapulted the Japanese studio into superstardom. With all that buzz circulating, many people are going back and checking out From Software’s other games as well. Luckily, most of them got a nice performance boost thanks to the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S being much better hardware than their last-generation counterparts.

The entire Dark Souls trilogy, including the first game’s 2018 remaster, now runs at 60 FPS on PS5. Not only that, but the load times are much quicker across all three games — bringing each (mostly) up to parity with their PC counterparts. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, From Software’s critically acclaimed action-adventure game, similarly runs like a dream too.

Bloodborne, unfortunately, is still as wonky as it ever was. For whatever season, the extra technical horsepower of the PS5 does little to improve the PS4-exclusive action RPG. Load times are reduced, of course. However, the resolution is still locked to 1080p, and the framerate doesn’t exceed 30 FPS. It’s a huge shame, frame pacing is a massive problem with Bloodborne, and it’s been that way since launch. Many fans were hoping the PS5’s backward compatibility might finally fix that issue, but thus far, no such luck.

Similarly, on the Xbox Series X|S, Dark Souls 3 is still capped to 30 FPS. Though this is likely due to the game itself capping out at 30 FPS, meaning From Software would need to release a patch removing the cap. Considering the Xbox Series X is more powerful than the PS5, not to mention it has vastly superior backwards compatibility, it’s kind of funny that Dark Souls 3 runs better on PS5.

Time will tell if From Software will patch Bloodborne on PS5 and Dark Souls 3 on Xbox Series X to accommodate higher framerates, but for right now, at least the load times are way better than they were on PS4 and Xbox One.
