Resident Evil Village demo confirms odd 45 FPS framerate with ray tracing on PS5 and Series X

4K HDR/60 FPS with ray tracing off

Did you catch the Resident Evil Village stream yesterday? If not, Jordan has you covered.

The gist is that a 60-minute demo is coming on May 1, and Mercenaries is coming back.

But shortly after the presentation, Capcom updated the game’s official site, adding in a bit of framerate reference for the various versions of the game. Ready? At a base, at the top-end, PS5 and Series X players are looking at 4K HDR at 60 FPS. Good! That’s pretty much what Capcom promised when the game was first announced. Once you turn on ray tracing through it’ll drop to 45 FPS on the same platforms though. The Series S can run 1440p HDR/45 FPS, dropping to 30 FPS with ray tracing on.

Also, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X can run the game at 1080p/60 FPS, or 4K HDR at 30 FPS. The PS4 runs at 900p/45 FPS, and the Xbox One is clocking in at 900p/30 FPS. I ran through the generations backward for you! Oh, and Stadians you are in luck: 1080p 60 FPS or 4K 60 FPS are options.

Phew!

You can find the full chart below, as well as at the site under the heading “Output Resolution and Expected Framerate.” I hope your platform and setting of choice is up to your expectations!

I’m just going to crank ray tracing off and sail at 60 FPS on the current consoles.
