The Surge Could Have Run In 4K and 30FPS On Xbox One Scorpio, Developers Say

Not even close to maxing out the PS4 Pro, either.

Posted By | On 28th, Apr. 2017

The PS4 Pro and the Xbox one Scorpio (especially) are pretty powerful systems- so powerful, that Frankfurt-based studio Deck13 Interactive’s upcoming science fiction take on the Dark Souls formula, The Surge, doesn’t even come close to tapping out all of the resources that they offer.

“We’ve already utilized half precision floating point arithmetics on the [PS4] Pro for a couple of shaders and the gain was clearly noticeable,” Deck13’s Benjamin Glatzel said in an interview with WCCFTech. “These optimizations were one of the many steps we had to undertake to break the 60 FPS mark in ‘Performance Mode’. We’re planning to improve upon that in the future as we are permanently improving our engine and we’re also pretty confident that we’re not remotely close to what the PS4 Pro can actually handle.”

But the PS4 Pro itself pales next to the Scorpio- something that even Deck13 realized during development. “Given the current state of our rendering backends and given the specs of the Scorpio, 4k @ 30 FPS might be really close. Sadly we didn’t have the chance to touch the Scorpio – yet.”

So yes, if you like high end performance and graphics on your consoles, the PS4 Pro and the Xbox one Scorpio especially are the way to go for you. The Surge will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
