Hyper Light Drifter 60 fps beta patch download available now

Hyper Light Drifter debuted last March on PC, and at that time, the studio said Heart Machine commented that the 60 fps mode would take some work. Now, 6 months later, finally a Beta patch that adds this option is now available for download.

For the patch you should right-click on Hyper Light Drifter in your Steam library, select Properties, go to the Betas tab, click the drop-down menu and select “next_update”; once you press that then click the close button and the patch will start to download.

The Beta is only available for the PC version, and Heart Machine said a little test is to be done before releasing the feature on other platforms. In addition, the developer said the patch can not be perfect yet, as they worked through more than 115 thousand lines of code. If you have problems, just change the frame rate on the menu or reverse the patch.

But that’s not all, because Heart Machine also added two modalities. First is Boss Rush, adding new achievements and that can only be unlocked by completing the game on standard difficulty. The next is Newcomer, an option that reduces the difficulty of the game for newcomers.

Finally, the feature introduced in the previous beta was the local cooperative multiplayer mode, which is already an official part of Hyper Light Drifter.
