Atomic Heart: New patch boosts the frame rate

Since the release in February 2023, developer Mundfish has been working continuously on the Soviet Union shooter Atomic Heart. The latest patch should please all of you who are on the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X and value high frame rates.

Atomic Heart didn’t get the best ratings upon release. The shooter’s gameplay turned out to be a bit too flat for that, even if it was far removed from the feared graphic blender.

Since the release in February 2023, the developers have also been continuously improving it with patches. Version 1.4.0.0 is now available for Atomic Heart and it should be of particular interest to next-gen players. Because the update brings support for 120 frames per second on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Provided, of course, that you have a TV with HDMI 2.1.

But even apart from that, the patch brings with it some important revisions, for example it fixes some achievements. Here is the full list of changes:
