The Crew 2’s anticipated 60 frames-per-second update for PS5 turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. While the game definitely plays better at the higher refresh rate, the visuals take a gigantic hit – we’ve got examples in our Hands On article. Fortunately, Ubisoft has acknowledged the issue and has committed to improvements.

“Our teams continue to work on improving the 60fps experience, and we have good reason to believe that we will be able to offer a higher resolution in the near future as well as a better use of the console resources,” a spokesperson for the French publisher said. It did acknowledge that “maintaining a smoother framerate […] has an impact on the visual quality of the game” but continued that it’ll “provide you with an update of the situation relatively soon”.

In the meantime, it has a workaround for PS5 players specifically. If you go to Settings > Screen and Video > Video Output > Resolution and force 1080p then it does, somehow, improve the visual quality of the 60fps mode. Of course, this comes with the caveat of outputting at a lower native resolution – but considering how bad the image quality is anyway, this is actually a viable option while weyou wait for a patch.
