Mercury Steam’s Raiders of the Broken Planet will be releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and PC but it will be available later this month in a rather interesting way. The Prologue will be free to download and offer two missions so players can get a grasp on the multiplayer 4v1 action that it promises. Subsequent episodes will expand on the story further.

However, Raiders of the Broken Planet will also make use of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One. It’s interesting when you consider that not all games on the PS4 Pro don’t support native 4K (mostly checkerboard 4K) while more and more games for the Xbox One X have shown signs of native 4K support.

Both consoles’  CPUs are fairly dated compared to the latest PC technology so what is Mercury Steam doing to ensure a desirable resolution on both platforms? Is it dynamic 4K based on load balancing, checkerboarding or something else for the sake of a steady 60 FPS?

Mercury Steam’s Dave Cox responded that, “Our premise is to always offer the best possible gaming experience to the players. That’s why we have chosen to use that extra power to ensure a maximum fluidity, aiming for 60fps with only slight drops at points with significant graphic stress.  A high FPS is vital for such a fast-paced game. Aiming for native 4K resolution, even making use of checkerboard, would have stuck us at 30 fps.”

“In any case, both Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro will have resolutions escalated above 1080p and improved fps rate.”

As for how difficult it is to juggle between different graphics APIs especially when the Xbox One and Xbox One X use DirectX 12 while the PS4 and PS4 Pro use a custom API, Cox said that, “API differences aren’t too significant between platforms. The best part of the code is generic, with the exception of some critical parts that are specific to each platform, that needed to be paid extra attention to get the most out of them.”

Raiders of the Broken Planet – Prologue arrives on September 22nd for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    Why is this game getting so much press? At this point in time they have already stated parity is their primary concern so there will be no difference. Move on its ok.

    If it ain’t a free PSN game, it certainly won’t run on my PS4 Pro.

  • Mr Xrat

    Xgimps still crying about parity then?

    • Nightrob

      Seems like you are the only one whining and trolling. This game will look and play amazing. Maybe better than the pro maybe the same, but will still play great. I allow you to go back to your waste station now little troll.

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    What? What the F#ck happened to “the beast”?

    • Sp4ctr0
    • pskunt

      THIS.

    • Barry Harden

      Yet still can’t reach that full 4K Native @60 fps gaming you find on PC’s. $500 for that!!?? I’ll rather get a PS4 Pro and hit a bigger library of exclusives.

    • pskunt

      ps4 more like psnore!

    • Barry Harden

      PS4 more like PS Dominance.

    • Nightrob

      No Barry… A $500 pc will not play this game at native 4k. At least with playable frame rates. Also, add in the xbox 360 bc and you have significantly more exclusives running on the xbox one/X… both of what I stated are facts little troll…deal with it.

    • andrewsqual

      Haha YET AGAIN. Even with the PARTIAL BC Xbone has with 360, it still doesn’t have more Xbone “exclusives” lol.

    • Nightrob

      Apparently, adrewsqual has no idea how to count…Pretty typical of ignorant trolls, actually….How quaint…. L….O….L

    • QUIMICOMORTAL
    • Mr Xrat

      Why are you still comparing base hardware to a competing upgrade which will get held back by worse base hardware?

      When you’re stuck on trash like ARK which is still unoptimized and broken at
      “full release” you know things have gone horribly wrong for you.

    • Nightrob

      What do you mean? Everyone with a brain already knew not every dev was going to utilize the X to its max especially right off the bat. If devs want to keep a game relatively the same over all console versions that is their prerogative..it doesn’t mean the X or even the pro is weak. Both probably aren’t being optimized 100%.

    • efnet

      This is a gamers conversation, lames with only 25 games in 4 years arent welcomed lol
      And i made you make your psn profile private lol

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      LOL users with fake accounts opinions dont matter!

    • efnet

      Fake?
      Nah nothing fake about them,
      Efnet is the name, and exposing fruads is my game

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      yes it is, and you yes you are, pretending you are someone else and taking credit for something you didnt do!

    • efnet

      How am i pretending? Im efnet, aka chiraq, my efnet name is banned at vg247 hence why i use another lol
      Tell em why you brag about all these exclusives but only got 25 games in 4 years

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

    • efnet

      What are you talking about?

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      you lost the hang of the conversation so soon ADD boy?

    • efnet

      I mean you bounce around alot without actully saying anything so it’s hard to keep up with gibberish.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      wrong again, you should only needed to read the previous comment, it didnt even contain that many words, I guess thats to much to ask from you add boy!

  • Barry Harden

    So Xgimps are paying $500 for ?????

    • Nightrob

      No Moron, the game isn’t $500…. You literally must be the dumbest of the dumb…Oh, by the way it is up to the devs at how far they want to take the game on any platform… but you probably knew that already, meaning you are just trolling for the sake of trolling…again, proving to the world you are just…..dumb.

    • Mr Xrat

      Paying for the unique feeling of Phil Spencer f**king them 24/7.

  • YOUDIEMOFO

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    so What the F#ck happened to “the beast”?

    • efnet

      You tell me….

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      I asked first, What the F#ck happened to “the beast”?

    • efnet

      Like i said, you tell me, it’s obvious you feel like something is wrong with the x where as i dont, so hence why i said, you tell me lol

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      No, I asked a question you answered with another topic

    • efnet

      Lol if you can’t answer it that’s fine, but you’re asking me to answer a question that i don’t have, so therefore i have no answer for ” what happend to the beast”
      Because nothing happend, the hardware is there, the release date is set, the price is right, the patched games are lined up, see?
      Its looks great from where im standing.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      oh, you are now playing dumb?

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    No its a guy that cant focus, and cant even answer a simple question!
    Good for you, hoarding sounds expensive!

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    who said it had to be physical?
    you still understood but played dumb again

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    you understood the question perfectly, yet instead of answering it you chose to answer with your 25 games crutch!

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    Yeah, you seem to think that means something!

    Do you think buying a ton of games (that you dont even play) allows you to play dumb? or are you just a dumb rich ADD boy?

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    Im not! I enjoyed and finished every single one of them!

    Not that you will EVER know how that feels!

    • efnet

      Lol oh no he beat 20+ games lol
      You got a long way to go son, i beat more than that

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Oh no! changing the subject again?

      Do you now think I care to compete with you?

    • efnet

      Lol you couldn’t anyway, 25 games? Lol ah man that struggle

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Yet I never tried! or cared! I didnt even talked to you, you were the one seaking me!

      You must be feeling lonely!

    • jznlv

      Want an award?

    • efnet

      Conversation didn’t involve you, so you can see yourself out, thanks!

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    Ohh, so now you are changing the argument? its not anymore that it can only be physical?

    • efnet

      I mean im not familiar with hoarding so i honestly wouldnt know.
      It just seemed like a silly was for a guy with very little to try and shame someone with more

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Oh, so that is what you think we are doing here?

      You think I am trying to shame you?

      OHhhh! you think you are shaming me? LOL

  • x1xCLUTCHx8x

    Lol i love all the comments on these articles about how there’s nothing to play on x1. I currently have over 100 games installed, that doesn’t include any of the bc games I could play if I ever get around to it.

    Honestly every time it comes up it sounds more to me like the PS exclusives have little to no replay value, maybe it’s the online community that’s the issue. My buddies and I have been playing the same 2 or 3 games almost exclusively for the last year or so and we still enjoy every hour played.

    • jznlv

      We are talking about exclusives and good games. No reason to get an xbox unless you just are an xbox fan

    • Luke Skywalker

      that’s a silly comment

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    You just shamed yourself if you think that what makes a person better!

  • QUIMICOMORTAL

    Oh! you found you didnt acomplish anything and now you run again?

    Run away then! I’ll see you when I see you, or when you feel lonely and come again to me looking for validation of your huge collection!
