AC Valhalla: PS5 performance drops despite screen tearing fix

The latest Title Update for AC Valhalla made some much needed fixes, but PS5 players are reporting different issues now!

Title Update 1.0.4

The title update was rolled out across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC and Stadia on Thursday, 26 November.

Looking on the official Title Update post on the assassinscreed subreddit, you can see the community is thrilled with these changes.

PS5 Performance

One of the main fixes from the title update was to stop screen tearing, particularly on Xbox Series X|S.

This has largely been successful, although there are still reports of the issue prevailing.

However, there is now a new issue with PS5 players reporting performance issues.

Certain areas (larger cities) appear to be experiencing a dip in FPS since the update.

Whilst the game is still running smoothly and quicker than the pervious gen consoles, we hope this issue is sorted sooner rather than later.
