Escape Academy came to Xbox Game Pass earlier this month; a title all about figuring out various escape rooms. As it turns out, developer Coin Crew Games is still figuring out the game too, from a technical perspective at least.
The team has taken to Twitter to break down a few upcoming changes on their way for Escape Academy. First off, the game runs at just 30 frames per second Xbox Series X; a performance target that "was never intended" for that version of the game. A fix is on the way to increase frame rate, with the intended target being 60FPS.
Coin Crew Games says that it's in the "final stages" of work on the performance patch, so this one should land relatively soon. The team is also looking at new field of view options due to player complaints, although any FOV changes will arrive in a later patch.
Even with these issues in mind, the game fared pretty well at launch. Release reviews were broadly positive ahead of the title's Game Pass arrival, on July 14th.
Have you tried Escape Academy on Game Pass? Noticed any issues? Let us know!
With all bugs and major mishaps in games for consoles especially it would b red interesting to know what Microsoft is testing before a game is out or before a new patch is released! Maybe something to make an article about?
@Sveakungen Microsoft tests to make sure the game doesn't break the console, the network, or compromise anything aforementioned.
They don't test games otherwise. Anything QA related is 100% up to the developer
I've been enjoying it - it's not really a fast paced game so I've not noticed at all that it's only 30fps...
The input latency was very annoying, and like Widey85 said 30 fps wasn't super noticeable but still nice to see at least 60 fps.
I hope this fix goes for Series S too. It seems possible with the graphical style. Fun game!
