Ghost of Tsushima Can Run at 60fps on PS5 with Game Boost Active
Ghost of Tsushima will be playable on PS5 at launch and will boast save transfers, 60fps, and better loading times.
While the PS5 will boast a library in the thousands when it comes to PS4 titles that are forward compatible on the next-gen system, only a certain number of those games will receive boosts for the upcoming hardware. In the case of one of the biggest PS4 releases of this year, we now know that it will indeed receive Game Boost functionality, and we also have a better idea of what that now entails.
Developer Sucker Punch recently took to Twitter to announced that its open-world action RPG Ghost of Tsushima will indeed be one of the PS4 titles on PS5 that will support Game Boost. As a result, Sucker Punch says GoT will be able to run with “frame rates up to 60FPS” in addition to having shorter loading times. The game will also be available on PS5 on day one and will allow users to transfer their saves from PS4 to PS5, too.
PS5 owners playing with Game Boost will see an extra option to allow frame rates up to 60FPS, and while loading speeds on the PS4 are already great, just wait until you see them on the PS5!

Even though we haven’t heard much from other developers in the industry when it comes to their own plans for Game Boost, I imagine most will feature similar specs. Drastic graphical overhauls might not be commonplace for PS4 games that come to PS5, but I imagine many will be happy with better frame rates alone. Speaking for myself, I know that I would gladly return to games like God of War and Bloodborne if they ran at a consistent 60fps.
The PS5 is set to launch exactly one month from today on November 12. For more on Ghost of Tsushima, you can hear our thoughts on the game in our latest Game of the Year video discussion.
