Microsoft and Moon Studios have announced that the Xbox Series X|S upgrade for Ori and the Will of the Wisps is available today, allowing players to play in 4K/120FPS or even 6K/60FPS.
Moon Studios revealed in July that Ori and the Will of the Wisps would run at 4K/120FPS in HDR on Xbox Series X, which is mighty impressive in itself. But what about players who have a 4K telly that doesn’t support 120FPS? Well, the developer has implemented a special 6K Supersampled Rendering Mode, increasing the image quality even further while outputting a 4K final image to your TV.
“So for those that can’t yet experience the amazing 120fps mode, you still have this new awesome visual mode and the game will look better than ever before,” explains Gennadiy Korol, Lead Engineer at Moon Studios. “Or maybe you prefer the sharper visual quality of the game over higher framerate – it’s up to you as a player and with the Xbox Series X, you can switch between both 4K 120fps and 6K 60fps options on the fly.”
So, first things first – that’s insane, and I love it. I don’t know if I’d even be able to notice the difference between 4K and a downscaled 6K, but it’s amazing that the option is there. For those very few people with rare and expensive 8K TVs, it doesn’t sound as if the Xbox Series X will produce a 6K image, but instead a sharper 4K image.
On top of that, the update also gives players access to new Image Sharpness Controls, will have much faster loading times and improved audio with an enhanced next-gen mix. Ori and the Will of the Wisps was already excellent, and now it should be even better on Microsoft’s next-gen console.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps is available now for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
