Arguably, Bloodborne is still to this day one of the highest-rated and most critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 exclusives, more than five years after its launch. Surprisingly, it’s still Hidetaka Miyazaki favorite amongst other titles like the recent Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and other Souls games.

While this title had been a significant success, fans have had one major complaint—performance. When the PlayStation 4 Pro console launched in November 2016, fans thought Bloodborne would have gotten some improvements as other titles, well, that never occurred.

After waiting for so long, it seems a fix might be on the way. Australian modder Lance McDonald who normally unveils secrets and fixes, like Dark Souls, P.T, and many others, claims to have “patched” Bloodborne to run at 60 FPS.

While it came with its downsides like frame timing issues, he later fixed on the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Also, Lance realized that activating Boost Mode in the PS4 Pro’s settings could even enhance performance to this 60 FPS patch.

Just as Lance thought, it was easier to maintain 60 frames per second after he tried to drop the render resolution to 720p from the standard 1080p.

There’s still more fixing of bugs to be done.

Hopefully, McDonald will drop this new patch for Bloodborne’s performance once the bugs are fixed. Check back for more updates on when Lance launches the patch!
