Though not the biggest first party game the PS5 is launching with, Astro’s Playroom is certainly one of the more interesting ones, not least because it’s been made specifically to showcase some of the PS5 and its controller’s biggest new features. Recently, various media outlets and influencers have gotten some hands-on time with the PS5 and the game itself, thanks to which some new details on both have been revealed of late.

Digital Foundry, for instance, recently uploaded a video (which you can view below), in which they confirmed the resolution and frame rate of the game. Astro’s Playroom, it seems, is running at a native 4K resolution and a consistent 60 frames per second, while it also seems like the game is making use of some ray-tracing features here and there.

There’s still some time left before the PS5 launches, so Astro’s Playroom might end up receiving even more optimizations, but this close to release, I’d say those numbers are pretty final (and rather impressive).

Astro’s Playroom will release exclusively for PS5 on November 12, and will come pre-installed with every PS5 console. The game will be around 4-5 hours long. You can check out some more gameplay footage through here.
