Looks Like Xbox One SDK Updates Are Working, The Technomancer Runs at 1080p on Xbox One
Spiders CEO talks about achieving the best graphical quality on consoles.
For all the criticism that’s been lobbed at the Xbox One and its potential power, recent SDK updates helped unlock a seventh CPU core, allowing for developers to do more with the hardware. How does this effect future games like Spiders’ The Technomancer though?
GamingBolt spoke to Spiders CEO Jehanne Rousseau about the resolution and frame rate for the future action RPG and on asking whether it would run on 1080p resolution and 60 FPS (or settling for 30 FPS), Rousseau said, “For a RPG like The Technomancer we preferred to achieve the best graphic quality, so we decided to stick to 1080p and 30 fps on PS4 and Xbox One.
“The 60 fps is a very interesting technical challenge, but concentrate our efforts on it would not be reasonable for us, and there would have been too many sacrifices to do on the game.”
It’s not necessarily the strangest situation though recent games like The Witcher 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight still run at 900p resolution on the console. What are your thoughts on future releases hitting 1080p on Xbox One though? Let us know in the comments.
