Vikings Wolves of Midgard May Not Run At 4K/30fps On PS4 Pro
Confirmed for 1080p and 30 FPS on PS4 Pro though.
A number of games these days have begun to support the PS4 Pro and quite a number of titles are hopping aboard the 4K bandwagon (whether through checkerboard rendering or simple upscaling). However, there’s a bit of effort that goes into enabling such support.
Speaking to Games Far CEO and head of development Peter Nagy, who’s currently working on Vikings: Wolves of Midgar, we asked if it would be possible for the Diablo-inspired action RPG to support 4K resolution and 30 FPS on the PS4 Pro. After all, it would be running at 1080p and 30 FPS on PS4 and Xbox One.
Nagy responded that, “We are still evaluating our options with performance. We definitively want to deliver the best gameplay experience on both consoles but the fact is that Vikings is heavy on performance because of its visuals. We aim to deliver a great gameplay experience in the first place and we are doing our best to get stable 1080p/30fps on both consoles. But we need some more time to confirm this is possible without staggering at some places.”
At this point, it seems that, “PS4 Pro will definitively support 1080p/30 fps. Unfortunately we may not be able to squeeze 4k/30fps from PS4 Pro; but we are still evaluating our possibilities with PS4 Pro.”
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is out in “early 2017” for PC, Xbox One and PS4 so there’s time yet. Stay tuned for more information in the meantime.
