Bloodborne: the first tests on PS5, how does it behave?
Very little is missing, now we begin to smell the scent of PlayStation 5, in a videogame generation that is increasingly current-gen. With the expiration of the embargoes, pending the official release of the Sony home console, scheduled for November 19, 2020, fans are eager to discover all the details of the experience offered by the Japanese giant. Among the functions that most the public expects to see at work is certainly that of backward compatibility and in this sense, among the most desired titles it is impossible not to mention Bloodborne, which made gamers dream so much at the time on PlayStation 4 and which now they can't wait to see the improvements on PS5.

However, the air you breathe is not very reassuring. In this regard, Lance McDonald published a post on Twitter, almost finding a release in the expiry of the embargo, venting to his followers on the fact that, unlike Sekiro and Dark Souls 3 which reach 60 fps on PS5, Bloodborne does not manages to do the same, remaining anchored at 30 fps. This confirms that to overcome the problems encountered with backward compatibility on next-gen a patch created ad hoc is needed, able to overcome the limits of the original code.

Okay, embargo is up and I'm allowed to talk about PlayStation 5 back compat now. All I have to say is Sekiro is 60fps, Dark Souks 3 is 60fps (it's locked at 30 on Xbox Series X, rip), and Bloodborne is still 30fps with bad frame pacing. ✌️

Well, the news we feared has arrived. Bloodborne is still stuck at 30 frames per second on PS5, although that console is certainly capable of allowing the game to perform better. Apparently, the developers have not yet bothered to release an update aimed at this purpose. On top of that, it appears that Bloodborne was not really designed to exceed 30fps, which means that even though it will be playable on PS5, the Sony home console cannot boost fps any more than the original game allows.

The prospects for FromSoftware to release this patch soon, however, also seem rather slim. Not only is the game developer very busy with other projects right now, but apparently this isn't their priority either. At this point, we are more likely to see a Bloodborne remastered for PS5 and surely this news would be extraordinary for any fan, as it is considered one of the best games of the generation. However, remember that the other improvements made by PS5 in the gaming experience of Bloodborne remain, such as the speed of the uploads thanks to its SSD.
