In a tweet, Remedy explained that the next-gen version of Ultimate Edition will offer two modes: Performance and Graphics. The former should keep the game at 60 frames per second, while the latter offers ray-traced graphics at 30 frames per second. Want to know the difference? You can get a quick preview in this 30-second YouTube video. When the player switches to Graphics Mode, you can clearly see Jesse’s reflection in a nearby window. (And there are lots of windows like this in the Bureau.)
For now, it’s not clear if Remedy is working on a mode that mixes the two, similar to Performance RT mode in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Miles Morales. Regardless, we’re excited to play a spruced-up console version. Control is a brilliant game, but it wasn’t the smoothest experience on older hardware, especially if you were playing on a base PS4 or Xbox One.
