The Xbox Scorpio is looking to be the most powerful and advanced console ever made, and not just in terms of hardware power. It also supports some incredibly high end technology standards, such as FreeSync and HDMI 2.1.
In an interview with Jules-Benjamin Lalisse, head of Eko Software, who are currently working on How To Survive 2, we asked him what support for these standards might mean for the Scorpio, and for the games running on it. “It will probably remove some artefacts or screen tearing in some games, but as it’s not supported by [the base] Xbox One, it may not be supported by all games,” he said.
He also said that the console and PC versions should have the same level of visual quality, since the PC version has been updated to reflect the work done on the console versions. “There are no specific improvements made just for PS4 or Xbox One,” he said. “The PC version got updates to reflect the latest work done for the console versions. The game is displayed in 1080p, but a full 60 fps [framerate] is not guarantee in all situations.”
And are there any plans on supporting the Xbox Scorpio? “We are not a big company, we are listing all potential improvements and then we decide where to put our efforts and energy. Currently no final decision has been taken, sorry!” he said, apologetically.
How To Survive 2 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
