Dark Souls II Frame-Rate Causes Weapons to Degrade Quickly, Patch Incoming

Dark Souls II Scholar-of-the-First Sin

Dark Souls II: Scholars of the First Sin was released earlier this month on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Several visual improvements were seen compared to the original Dark Souls II, including a higher frame-rate. Unfortunately, the higher frame-rate is causing weapons in the game to degrade quickly.

The degeneration of weapons is tied to the frame-rate, so a higher rate means faster deterioration. Thankfully, the problem will be fixed in an upcoming patch.

According to Bandai Namco, they will release the update for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The fix will be issued for PS4, Steam and Xbox One, and will be apparent for people running the game at 60fps as the durability decrease rate is linked to the frame rate. We are still working on the exact release date for the patch, which will also fix additional issues not just durability, and will follow up with the date as soon as possible.

When will the patch come out isn’t yet revealed but I hope it won’t be long. Dark Souls II isn’t an easy game to play so having weaker weapons will make it close to impossible to finish.

Also, Dark Souls II is a great game to play at a higher frame-rate and I’m loving my time with it,  so it would be a disappointment if developers fix this issue by reducing FPS.

Will it be OK if they reduce frame-rate to improve the game? Let us know down below.
