The 60FPS update for Hyper Light Drifter on Mac and Linux is now live underneath the ‘next_update’ branch in the game.
When it originally released in April of this year, Hyper Light Drifter was locked at 30 FPS by default. Due to feedback from players, developer Heart Machine introduced a 60 FPS beta in September, and a full update on October 12 for Windows. Now players on Man and Linux can enjoy the near-final increased frame rate update.
To switch to the ‘next_update’ branch:
1) Right click on Hyper Light Drifter in your Steam Library
2) Click on “Properties”
3) Click on the “BETAS” tab
4) Click the drop down menu and select the ‘next_update’ branch
5) Click the “close” button and your game should start updating immediately
Once we feel confident that the changes are stable, they will be moved into the main branch.
Heart Machine also states that should anyone notice any problems with this build to send an email detailing it and their OS/hardware specs to email@example.com.
