Dontnod Entertainment has just dropped a surprise patch for RPG Vampyr, with enhancements for new-gen consoles.
As per the announcement on Twitter, the update doesn’t just offer a better visual experience on the newest machines. In fact, the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X also get to benefit from the additions as well. With the new patch, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X can run the game at 1440p resolution at 60 FPS. Meanwhile, the Xbox Series S and PlayStation 4 Pro can now run the game at the same 1440p resolution at 30FPS. Finally, the Xbox One X now runs the game at 1296p at 30 FPS.
Our reviewer at the time of Vampyr‘s original release quite enjoyed the adventure. Alice Bell said in her review “Vampyr is good, and it does some exquisitely clever things, and as long as you’re happy to lean into a kind of consumptive, Byronic flair for the dramatic then you’ll have a good time.”
It’s not currently known what else Dontnod is working on at the moment. They released Twin Mirror to a rather muted reception at the tail end of last year, and this year’s Life is Strange: True Colors saw the series they started handed to Deck Nine. Could a sequel to Vampyr be one of the studio’s six games reportedly in production? We’ll have to wait and see.
PS5: 1440p / 60 FPS
PS4 Pro: 1440p / 30FPS
XSX: 1440p / 60 FPS
XSS: 1440p / 30FPS
Xbox One X: 1296p 30 FPS
