The Surge To Run At 1080p on PS4, 900p on Xbox One
The resolution wars continue…
The resolution wars this generation are a bit ridiculous- people are more obsessed about the lines and dots their consoles can display on the screen, rather than about the games themselves. And yet, I suppose, for a lot of fanboys, news such as this continues to serve as fodder.
Deck13, best known for Lords of the Fallen, a rather competently made Dark Souls clone from a few years ago, are now going to be translating that same formula to a dystopian science fiction setting with their upcoming game The Surge– and speaking to WCCFTech about the upcoming game, Deck13’s Game Programmer Torsten Fock-Herde confirmed that the Xbox One version of the game will be running at 900p, while the PS4 version is going to be at a full 1080p. Deck13 also confirmed that though they did evaluate the possibility, The Surge will not be supporting DirectX 12- for now, they are sticking to DirectX 11.
Microsoft really can’t get the Xbox One Scorpio out fast enough- after all, that console, which is currently projected to be the most powerful console ever made at the time of its release, will help Microsoft bridge this kind of gap with third party games. The Surge is due out in 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
