In addition to this, the patch will also add an option to cap the game frame rate 30 FPS. ‘This is a frame rate cap — not a lock. It won’t eliminate the rare instance of a dropped frame during gameplay’ explained Sucker Punch.

Few other changes are listed below:

  • A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those, they were extremely helpful!).
  • If your controller runs out of batteries in the middle of gameplay, your game will pause. Our art director pulled a hamstring scrambling to get his second controller mid-boss-battle, so we needed to fix this.
  • If you’re choosing expert difficulty, we let you know within the options dialog if you’re qualified for the “Unstoppable” trophy the moment you opt in.
  • Photo Mode.
