Digital Foundry: What Remains of Edith Finch PS4 Version Suffers From Performance Issues

April 30, 2017Written by Zarmena Khan

Giant Sparrow’s adventure game, What Remains of Edith Finch, recently received the Digital Foundry treatment and its┬áresults aren’t exactly positive. The outlet has noted that the game’s PlayStation 4 version suffers from a “dramatic” loss of performance compared to the PC version and needs quite a bit of improvement.

Frame-rate on the standard PS4 is averaging 25fps in open areas and drops even lower in some spots. Digital Foundry believes that if the studio implements better frame-pacing, then at the very least the PS4 Pro will deliver steady 30fps. However, the game still requires optimization work especially in the outdoor areas to deliver a decent performance on the base PS4.

“When you combine a low average frame-rate with bad frame-pacing and streaming stutters, the result just isn’t good enough,” the analysis reads.

Although What Remains of Edith Finch is a slow-paced adventure, the immersion certainly counts, which Digital Foundry says is affected by the aforementioned issues.
