Update: A new patch for Dead Space’s PS5 remake is now available to download, and it completely eradicates a bug which was previously affecting the release’s visuals. The game now looks and performs as intended, so if you're playing the sci-fi horror, make sure you get the update downloaded and installed.
EA is plotting a patch for Dead Space’s otherwise acclaimed PS5 remake which will fix a resolution scaling issue. Fans on Reddit spotted the title’s image quality would take an unprecedented dip in select situations, ruining the visuals. Many believe this bug is a fault of Virtual Super Resolution – a technology which enables a release to render at higher resolutions before being downscaled to a typical display – and was introduced with the title’s v1.000.002 patch, as it wasn’t occurring as aggressively prior.
“The team is working on a patch that will improve the issue on PS5,” a spokesperson wrote on the series’ official Reddit page. “[There’s] no ETA quite yet, but I’ll keep you all updated. Thank you for your patience as well as your help with identifying this issue!”
