The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Can Run at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5 Thanks to a New Mod


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, having been released on PlayStation 4 as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, is fully playable on PlayStation 5, but it doesn't benefit much from the console's additional power. But thanks to a new mod, the game can now run at smooth 60 FPS on the console.

The Skyrim @ 60 fps mod, developed by Wrighton, not only makes the game run at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5, but it also works on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. Unfortunately, the mod doesn't work too well on PlayStation 4 Pro, due to the game running at 4K resolution on the console. As an added bonus, using this mod doesn't turn off Trophies as every other mod does.
