EA Sports PGA Tour Adds Performance Mode 60 FPS in Latest Update - Patch Notes

EA Sports PGA Tour patch 4.5 was released today adding Performance Mode, which allows Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 users to play at 60 FPS. Players will see improved camera motion and animation in Performance Mode with a slight decrease in resolution and visual fidelity. A new Visual Quality toggle has been added in the Settings menu under Visual allowing users to select from the aforementioned mode or Quality Mode, which offers the best visual quality capped at 30 FPS.

The update also addresses an issue with the Career Mode scoreboard where the leaderboard displayed golfers with an E score during intro and outro sequences, regardless of their actual score. The team continues to work on future updates which include additional event length options for Career Mode and turn-based online gameplay.
