On PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, the game supports a 60 frames per second Performance Mode and a 30 frames per second Graphics Mode. However, on Xbox, it also has the advantage of ray-tracing. The supernatural third-person shooter action-adventure game received moderate to good reviews for the concept. However, that particular version of the game has also had some bugs.

Users were gradually getting frustrated with the crashes, minute frame drops, and mission-related bugs. Thomas Puha, communications director at Remedy Entertainment tweeted yesterday about issues the developer is currently investigating. He updated that the game will roll out updates for the consoles, which will fix the crash issues.

Control: Ultimate Edition 1.02 Patch Update

Update 1.02 is now live on Xbox Series X|S & PS5. The fixes on both consoles are slightly different. For Xbox Series X|S, the developer has fixed some bugs that were crashing the game. Additionally, the game will also appear smoother due to the improved stability.

For PlayStation 5, Remedy has worked on Game Help Localization. It also “fixed a crash that might occur in The Foundation when a Hiss Elevated uses Ground Slam on the player.” So, hopefully, the game on PS5 will finally stop crashing during the specified mission path.

In the comment thread, the game support replied to a user querying about the PC version of the original game. According to the developer, the crashes occurring in the PC version are because of different reasons than the consoles.

“Something else is causing the crashes that are specific to the PCGP version and these are still being investigated and tested.”
