Ubisoft has been providing a bit more information about how Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch title Watch Dogs: Legion runs on next-gen consoles in a Reddit AMA.
This comes courtesy of Live Producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan, who highlighted that the game runs at 4K, 30FPS on Xbox Series X and PS5, also featuring ray-tracing and cross-progression (via Smart Delivery on Xbox), with plans for cross-play to be added as an update in the first year of the game’s lifecycle.
Thillainathan reiterated this when asked about the Xbox Series X version later in the AMA, but refrained from giving Xbox Series S details, or confirming whether the game has multiple performance options for next-gen.
Are you happy with 30FPS, or were you hoping for higher? Give us your thoughts down below.
Fraser has an unhealthy obsession for all things related to Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead series, and has an intimate knowledge of sports games on Xbox One. He also supports Walsall FC – that team in the West Midlands you’ve never heard of.
There has been a lot of talk about 4k 60fps being a standard without much understanding of how difficult that is to achieve.
I think the devs have to do what is best for their vision of the game they are making. Sometimes that will prioritise frame rates, sometimes resolution and ray tracing or they find a middle ground and give options for both.
For me, my best experiences this year were mostly played on a 1080p TV at 30fps a few others at 4k 30fps.
I don’t think I will really miss 60fps although it has been nice to experience higher levels on some older games on my laptop.
So in the end, if the game is good enough I’m happy. Watchdogs with all that neon etc is going to look very special with rtx and 4k.
