Dragon's Dogma 2 PS5

Capcom has finally got around to improving the performance of Dragon's Dogma 2 with a significant PS5 patch that can be downloaded now. From a performance standpoint, the most important addition the update brings is the ability to set "graphics settings" to either high or low. On top of that, if you own a 4K TV that supports 120hz, Dragon's Dogma 2 can now make use of the feature.

Depending on whether you set the "graphics settings" option to high or low, Capcom says you can look forward to the following: "Frame rates in areas with a lot of NPCs, such as town centers, should be improved. In addition, turning the graphics settings to low should further improve frame rates." More improvements to the frame rate will be delivered in future updates, the publisher confirms.

Elsewhere, the item storage system is getting an overhaul. Having downloaded the patch, you'll be able to sell items directly from your storage box, equip armour from the menu, and immediately claim armour from storage for the relevant Vocation when you switch to it. Furthermore, you can now store up to 999 duplicates of an item (previously it was just 99).

Other smaller adjustments include making it easier to find Oxcarts out in the open world, a new option in Photo Mode to remove your protagonist from the shot, and various bug fixes. You can view the complete patch notes below.
