The day one patch for Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart includes a wide array of improvements, but the two new performance modes are the most notable addition of update 1.001.000. The game defaults to Fidelity mode, which gives players a native 4K image locked at 30 FPS. Playing on the newly-added Performance mode doubles the framerate to 60 FPS and delivers an upscaled 4K image that’s still fairly sharp, and players can choose Performance RT mode to knock the resolution a bit lower and add ray-tracing on top of the 60 FPS boost. The game looks gorgeous no matter which mode you select though, so you can’t really go wrong.
