The Evil Within PC Patch fixes frame lock and letterbox view

Offering some hope to console gamers today as Tango Softworks released a patch for the PC version of Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within which at launch forced a letterbox view and locked the frame rate at 30 frames per second. Post the automatic patch, PC gamers will now have the option to remove the letterbox format and go full screen, as well as being able to unlock the frame rate to a more preferable (for some) 60 frames per second.

Update Notes:

  • Frame lock settings added
  • In settings, you can now toggle between a 30 FPS and 60 FPS cap. *Checked and it’s 60 FPS with V-sync enabled*
  • Letterbox setting
  • UI toggle to disable the letterbox bars
  • Fixes gameplay issues when running at >30 FPS
  • Fixes for visual issues associated with removing letterbox framing
  • Achievements now work when console is enabled
  • Fix for game starting in windowed mode on first run
  • Minor localization fixes
