But it will support true 4K.
At Microsoft’s E3 presser yesterday, Crackdown 3 was confirmed to be launching on November 7 this year, which is also when the Xbox One X will launch. For those of you who’re wondering if the game will take full advantage of the Xbox One X’s specs, it will do just that- well, more or less.
In an interview with Geoff Keighley, Clint Bundrick, who is working as a design director on Crackdown 3, gave the full laydown on what the game will look like on the Xbox One X. “You’ll see that we’re running it in true 4K. If you go play it on the showfloor, it runs in 4K. And it’s beautiful, especially with our draw distance and the graphic novel style, it looks beautiful in 4K.”
He also went on to confirm that the game will also fully support Dolby Atmos. “We’re also doing special audio,” Bundrick said, “so we’re supporting Dolby Atmos for those who have Dolby Atmos systems. And with our explosions and the kind of chaotic bombast of this game, it sounds amazing.”
When Bundrick was asked if Crackdown 3 will run at 60 frames per second on the Xbox One X, he said that that wasn’t going to be the case. “It’s be 30 frames,” he said. Which sounds fair, especially considering the fact that with everything the game does, Crackdown 3 is probably going to be a very demanding game for whatever system it is being played on.
Crackdown 3 launches in November for the Xbox One family and PC. Stay tuned for more updates on the game.
