The update for Control makes a big difference to the frame rates on PS4

About a day after I was moaning about Control juddering along like nobody’s business on PS4, Remedy released an update that fixed a lot of the problems. The frame rate is now a whole lot smoother, and the texture pop-in is barely noticeable.

It’s still not perfect, mind. For some reason, the frame rate dips incredibly low for a couple of seconds whenever you come out of the pause menu, and it still judders a bit when you bring up the map overlay. But overall it’s a lot more playable with the update. I feel slightly better about getting the PS4 version over the PC one now, although I’m still hankering to see this gorgeous game running with all the settings turned up to max.

I finished Control just the other day, so expect a full review soon (spoiler: it’s brilliant).
