Goodbye letterboxing! The PC version of The Evil Within has gotten an update that allows players to disable the top and bottom black bars in the game’s display. The patch also gives owners of “high-end PCs” the ability to toggle between 30 and 60 frames per second.
The letterboxing and frame limiting in The Evil Within has been controversial since PC players first discovered them. While some argued that the original presentation was more cinematic, others criticized the letterbox bars and low frame rate for interfering with visibility and response times during hectic sequences. There’s no word on if a similar patch will make it to console versions of the game.
