Free content updates and performance improvements will be coming after launch.
The wait for Mothergunship, developed by Grip Digital and Terrible Posture Games (of Tower of Guns fame), has been more than a little long at this point. It’s still scheduled for a 2018 release and we have received a demo showcasing the depth of gun-crafting available. However, we’re interested to see how the rogue-like bullet-hell first person shooter will perform on consoles like the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.
To learn more, GamingBolt reached out to Grip Digital’s marketing and PR manager George Mamakos about the resolution and frame rate of both versions. He responded that, “The resolution on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions will be Full HD and the frame rate will be from 60 to 30 fps. We are going to continue supporting the game after its launch with free content updates and improvements, so the plan is to increase the quality of the performance and resolution on all platforms.”
The “free content updates” part has us especially interested. Mothergunship will see players entering various randomized enemy ships to eventually defeat an invading armada. The ability to customize one’s arsenal to an insane degree while also playing with friends in co-op should help extend the game’s lifespan. What more could the developers add on top? Hopefully more information will be offered after Mothergunship releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC so stay tuned.
