Dragon's Dogma 2 Update Adds New Graphics Toggle In Attempt To Improve Xbox Frame Rate

Despite some pretty fantastic reviews on release, Dragon's Dogma 2 launched with some notable performance issues on pretty much every platform. The team at Capcom has been slowly rectifying these issues since launch, and a fresh patch has now landed that should further improve the situation for Xbox players.

The two headline features here are a new graphics toggle, which allows users to play with either 'High' or 'Low' settings, while players using 120Hz TVs will now have the option to make use of a higher frame rate range as well.

Toggling to "Low" graphics should "further improve frame rates", including in places like "town centers with a lot of NPCs". We're not sure how much the visuals will be affected here (it's early and there aren't many impressions out there yet), but it sounds like 'Low' is definitely worth a go if you're struggling with the FPS in Dragon's Dogma 2.

Anyway, we'll go ahead and drop the team's full patch notes down below:
