Prior to today’s update, which has already been released, PS5 players had to choose between resolution mode and performance mode. The resolution mode featured 4K visuals with ray tracing, while the performance mode gave priority to stable 60fps and dropped ray tracing. Players can now take advantage of both modes with the new “Performance RT” mode, which has both 60fps and raytracing.

This new mode adjusts scene resolution, reflection quality, and pedestrian density to achieve ray tracing at 60 fps, as described in the mode’s in-game instructions. The word “adjust” in this description probably means “lower.” This may be noticed by some players, but Miles Morales is so fast paced that it’s 60fps more than poor quality reflexes and minimal pedestrians, especially when swinging in New York City. And you will see the benefits of ray tracing. ..
The update has already been released and weighs about 262MB. After downloading and installing the update, restart Miles Morales, go to the visual settings in the game’s main menu and select the new Performance RT mode. As with the previous two modes, you can also switch between this new mode and the game’s resolution mode from the Start menu while playing the game.
