PS4 Frame-rate

I play DBD on PS4, and have played a few games since the release of "Darkness Among Us". The frame-rate has dropped considerably, especially for killer. It is extremely hard to hit a survivor, especially topped off with the amount of 360 and ead hard users we see on console. I don't know if this is the same on Xbox and PC, but on PS4 this is not good. I don't know much about game design and how difficult it is to improve the frame-rate, all I know is that this is going to be a big problem for killers and survivors alike and needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

    The framerates on PS4 truly are a pain in the @$$... however it also sums down to the controller usage making 360's and similar jukes in the open so easy to utilize for PS4 survivors that i rather suggest a increased hitbox evaluation to the PS4 (and Xbox if they got same issue...). I mean DbD got no crossplatform so why not truly separate the PC and consoles versions as each has their own issues to be fixed wich could inbalance each other if one set met his desired patch... like increased hitboxes may be OP on PC maybe

    Do you have a video to demonstrate how bad the framerate is? I'm on Xbox One X and it runs and feels great! I don't think frames are not capped to 30 anymore but actually it appears closer to 60 on my eye?

    Very responsive now. It also looks now a little bit better.

    Example below, are you having something different?

    I find the Frames are actually better since the recent patch, however, the event combined with certain killers can cause dramatic frame drops. It can be annoying but I feel it is better than it was, I can actually chase without losing people due to frame issues all the time.

    Even on PC I notice significant frame drops, for example on the new map. I dont wanna imagine how it is on PS4

    It was 8 or 9 months ago that a patch dropped that basically murdered my FPS for my PC. I used to be able to run the game on ultra with 60+ frames consistently, and then for about a month I couldn't play since the game ran at like 20 FPS. Eventually I just gave up and stopped playing until Legion released, and I came back to find out that some patch along the way fixed the majority of the issues, though it still doesn't run as well as it used to, with FPS dips here and there, especially on the new map.

    I really wish my PS4 Pro could run this well. It's worse than yours.
