The Xbox One X may not be powerful enough to pull native 4K for the highest end AAA games, but for mid tier and low tier games, it can easily push them to the resolution. That will happen with the upcoming Sudden Strike 4 as well, the World War 2 themed real time strategy game that is coming to both, Xbox One and PS4.
Speaking to WCCFTech, Project Manager Attila Söröss from Budapest-based studio Kite Games confirmed that the game runs in a fixed native 4K on Xbox One X. “Sudden Strike 4: European Battlefields Edition runs in native 4K (2160p) on Xbox One X. It is a fixed resolution, there is no dynamic scaling,” he said, also adding that the game will run at 30 FPS on all consoles, and no different graphical modes will be available to players.
He also confirmed the Xbox One X build of the game to a high end PC, noting “Sudden Strike 4 European Battlefields Edition on Xbox One X is pretty much identical to PC max settings with a few tweaks. When it comes to high resolution, the bottleneck is always the GPU. You would need a Radeon RX 580 or a Geforce GTX 1070 to run Sudden Strike 4 with max settings in 4K on PC. In terms of CPU and memory requirements, you should be fine with our recommended specs, even in 4K.”
So, this is one game that Xbox One X owners can enjoy in startling picture quality on their console (the PS4 Pro version of the game runs only at 1080p), albeit with a higher frame rate).
