Senior producer for Xbox One Gary Richards also talks about the CQC update.
Elite: Dangerous will be releasing soon on the Xbox One and fans can expect a wide open universe with tons of activities to partake in. GamingBolt spoke to Gary Richards, senior producer for the Xbox One version, and asked about the resolution, frame rate and the upcoming CQC update.
With regards to the resolution and frame rate, Richards said that the massively multiplayer open galaxy would run at 1080p resolution and 30 FPS but there’s more. “We hit 1080p/30 FPS in the massively multiplayer open galaxy, and 1080p/60 FPS in our dedicated PVP mode, Close Quarter Combat.”
How is the CQC update shaping up on the Xbox One? According to Richards, it’s the same insane PvP mayhem. “We beta-tested CQC first on Xbox One because we wanted fresh players on the new way to play, without bringing hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of hours of expertise to the table, but we’ve found players on every platform have taken to CQC in the same way. Wherever you play it’s the same crazy PVP battleground with no up and no down, in these intricate custom-built arenas where threats can come from anywhere.
“Elite Dangerous 1.4 ships the very same day as Elite Dangerous for Xbox One, so Mac and PC will get CQC at the very same time. We’re going to keep supporting it going forwards, and we hope it becomes a really competitive space. We know the e-sports community doesn’t come for free, so we’re going to be developing it in a measured fashion, and if that community wants us, we’ll be there to support them.”
Elite: Dangerous releases for Xbox One on October 6th.
