Ninja Theory confirmed that Hellblade on Xbox One X will allow users to choose from a 60FPS mode, an Enhanced Visuals mode and a High Resolution mode which goes up to 4K.
The definitive version of a masterpiece!
you mean the version that's already been on PC for awhile. Not Console Fake 4k. I'm disappointed in my X and Pro. FakeK
Bet your pc can’t even run 4K. If it does, good for you spending 1500 dollars.
Always get a good laugh out of how practically every commenter has a high end 4k machine when everyone knows it isn't that common as its made out to be.
Let's hope it gets the sales to encourage more small devs to take a chance. PS4 owners did the right thing.
Walk pretty, or walk realistically, thats all i read
Wouldn't that be PC since this isn't regulated to just consoles. *I don't play on PC btw. I'm just not delusional.
I’m just glad Xbox players get to play this! It’s amazing! And it’s not just the game itself, but how it was made.
4K and HDR, talk about a beautiful upgrade.
Can't wait to see it in HDR. That's an edge it will have even on PC.
HDR has really stalled on PC. Hopefully the implementation is really well done here.
PC is also receiving HDR upgrade nice try.
Yeah I was about to say that wouldn't make any sense why it would release on PC without all the options considering it's modular?
@vj27 There's literally no tech reason behind it, most GPUs support HDMI 2.0 and have drivers capable of delivering HDR, the reason for the lackluster support is because there simply isn't a large quantity of PC monitors that support HDR and even those don't support it properly, lack of UHD certified color space and so on. Despite what N4G arm chair software engineers wanna say, most people do not hook up their PCs to TVs lol and so developers see no reason to support it. Now on consoles theres a mass market for HDR 4K TVs
Nice Upgrade over PS4 pro
Confirmed, will be the definitive console version. I’ll buy it again for my onex
Confirmed, The only good game on Xbox
I don't understand why people like you aren't getting banned?
Seems like a waste of money, it wont be fundamentally different and the game is really less about video than it is audio. Beside I thought you guys didn't like buying games again.
I dont see any reason why the sudden bash at Xbox ... I loved HELLBLADE on Pro and its a great game and cant wait for GOW too but this is uncalled for when people start bashing for no reasons... Just my thought... Xbox people needs to play Hellblade.. Its a short game but damn! its gorgeous and good story also i would suggest you guys to use your Headphones while playing cause the Sound used in this game is out of the world.. and Sound plays an Important role...
i’m wondering if it will support Atmos. I know the One supports it, my HT receiver supports it. I might look to pick up a couple atmos speakers then
If HB receives ATMOS support it will be on a different level of awesomeness.. Hope it gets it..
I love my Xbox One X.
Great catch. PS4 Pro version only has two modes, framerate or resolution, so I wonder what the enhanced visuals mode will add on Xbox One X.
Yessss 4k mode and 6fps as well im ready
Hilarious thing is Xbox One X is checkerboard rendering.
So is the PS4.
Yes but u knew that going in. X promised TRUE 4k n that ain’t happening.
Tons of Xbox X games are native 4k, and many of them are some of the best console graphic games released to date. Why blame them for what the developers choose not to do?
Only on a handful of games. Last I checked most pro games are checkerboard. Hell pro can't even hit 1800p without checkerboard. Sounds like you got yourself an inferiority complex
I'm not gonna lie, I was really expecting the pro to be a 60 fps console as that only required 2x the gpu, not 4x the gpu of this upscaled, blurred 1440p crap. But then it seems like 3/4 through development they decided to market it as a, "4k console", instead of doing what it was obviously designed for. Maybe they messed up when designing it and didn't realize the CPU could achieve reliable 60 fps on every title so they fell back to more resolution instead???
The x should be able to do 60fps at 4k as promised by Microsoft. These options are acceptable for the pro. Compromises still being made. Hear it’s the still weak cpu or gpu that’s causing the problems.
"The x should be able to do 60fps at 4k as promised by Microsoft." Citation needed on that promise. [email protected] FPS is just now becoming an all-around standard for PC's that are costlier than the X.
You won't get confirmation from them because this is what MS said on the subject: "Microsoft has said from day one that developers have full control over how they want to use the new 4K-ready Xbox One X (aka "Project Scorpio"). I re-iterated the point days ago by reminding everyone the Xbox One X won't play every single game in native 4K at a "rock solid" 60FPS. Every game is different, every engine is different, and every developer is trying to do different things. Xbox division head Phil Spencer says that's not where Xbox wants to be, and it doesn't want to dictate to developers how to make their games--it just delivers the box with the power and ability to hit high-end console performance. The rest is up to developers, and they're able to do it as they see fit." Source: https://www.tweaktown.com/n...
They promised true 4k. They delivered. They ~didn't~ promise universal forced 3rd party 60 fps or 4k or we won't allow their next call of duty to launch on our console." I will admit though I want to see more games get native 4k. Mainly the Mass Effect trilogy.
why cant it have all 3 modes active? i thought this was a beast of a console lol but.... you only get to chose 60 fps or 4k wtf...
What other console available on Earth has more than 12gb of ram and a 6Tflops gpu? That's the thing about reality, it has rules. You can't make a piece of hardware suddenly do twice it's own capability because you want it to.
you can have all the power you want if you cant optimize it to run the software then its useless thats my point..
I know right? All that power and it’s still only doing what the pro can offer for 100 less.
Every game that has come out gives the X an advantage in the resolution department of 2-3 times resolution. Just look at overwatch which is going to be 4K 60 with no CB, where as the Pro is stuck at 1080P - that is just crazy 4 times resolution bump on the X and you say the PRO can do the same. By the way I have a Pro and love the exclusives and play them there, but I am not blind to what the X puts into the equation. I have One pro and 3 X in my house.
exactly the pro has the exact same options in other games like monster hunter offered the same options for 100$ less :D so much propaganda about this console and at the end of the day its no different than the pro
I was unaware 1440p was equivalent to 4k “Luckily, in an interview with Ninja Theory co-founder and Hellblade Creative Director Tameem Antoniades, we were able to confirm that PS4 Pro’s enhanced resolution mode runs at 1440P (2560×1440).” https://wccftech.com/hellbl... There’s also a 3rd mode that the pro doesn’t have enhanced visuals as well as HDR at launch. I don’t even know if the Pro has hdr for this but it didn’t at launch
I'm sure Xbox fans are more excited for this than Sea of Thieves
Not my kinda game, I've enjoyed playing SOT today though, but it's not going to last unless I start playing with my friends cus it's boring as fuck alone.
SOT is actually doing quite well, but you'd never know it by looking at PS4G....
Definitive console version ftw
Wish it was enslaved 2 but ill check this out
You know it makes me laugh people on here Sony fanboys used to say look at what the small developers can achieve on PS4 pro it looks amazing and it’s an exclusive now the Xbox x is goin to be the best version the same people are slagging it off now get a grip. I own both pro and X and i think Sony has blew the competition away this time around but Microsoft has done a great job with the x it’s just a better console in every way to the pro and no matter what anyone says the games do look and run better aswell. All my games I play on the x are either 4K native or 1800p which is very hard to tell the diff and it’s all native not FAKE 4K like PS4 pro which is heavily reliant on fake checkerboarding 4K including god of war. Before you fanboys start remember I’m actually more of a Sony fan and the checkerboarding games still look in increadable but it isn’t real 4K because it’s simply not powerful enough. The thing with the Xbox x is as well as the higher res you also get 4K assets reserved for high end pc only as well as advanced geometry and anti aliasing etc simply because it has more memory than the ps4pro just look at the multiplat comparisons.
