Dev Explains Why Toren Is PS4 Exclusive For Now, Runs Much Faster On PS4 Than Regular PCs
Creative director Alessandro Martinello says the team is aiming for more realistic and detailing lighting on PS4.
Swordtales’ Toren, a fantasy adventure game with a dark tone, may not be the biggest blockbuster out for the PS4 (along with PC and Mac) in 2015 but it’s stylings and overall atmosphere have certainly caught our attention. The question as always though is whether it isn’t heading to the Xbox One as well.
Speaking to creative director Alessandro Martinello, he stated that the lack of an Xbox One release was because, “We had early access to the PS4 dev kit and this gave us the certainty that we will launch on Sony’s console. But we don’t exclude the possibility of release in other platforms.”
As for the game’s art style, Martinello talked about the power of the PS4’s GPU in handling the game compared to your average PC. “The game runs much faster than a regular PC, and we haven’t made changes to use all this power. We intend to use more realistic and detailed lighting on PS4, but our main goal is to guarantee the 60 fps performance.”
