Red Dead Redemption has just released on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The game’s PS4 version is backwards compatible on the PS5 so no native version. One content creator has shared their findings including what resolution it runs at and new settings.
Is it 4K on PS5?
In a video by YouTuber The PlayStation Tester, the game runs at 4K resolution at 30 frames per second on PS5.
New graphics settings
There are several new graphics settings in the settings menu to allow the game to run better.
- Anti-Aliasing (FSR 2.2 or FXAA)
- Motion Blur (also on Nintendo Switch)
- Subtitle Scale (also on Nintendo Switch)
- Objective Scale (also on Nintendo Switch)
- Help Text Scale (also on Nintendo Switch)
It’s quite interesting to see FSR 2.2 make its way into this re-release of Red Dead Redemption. AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 otherwise known as FSR 2 allows games is a temporal upscaling technology to make games run better without compromise on resolution.
How big is the download size?
The PlayStation Tester also shared the download size of Red Dead Redemption for PS4/PS5. Version 1.02 comes in at 10.43GB. The Nintendo Switch version comes in at 11.4GB, one gigabyte more.
If you’d like to know how the Nintendo Switch version is, be sure to check out our preview here. We got chance to play it early and see it for ourselves. The game runs at 30FPS there at a much lower resolution but it is still perfectly playable. The aliasing is quite worse than the PS5 version however.
Are you going to pick up the PS4 version for your PS5 console? Let us know down in the comments below. Personally, we’d love to have seen a native PS5 version taking full advantage of the current gen hardware.
