Resident Evil 8 demo shows a promising start for Capcom's latest game on the PS5. It runs at native 4K at 60 FPS with the addition of ray-tracing.
Wow. There was the supposed 'insider' that was saying that developers were having such a hard time running the Resident Evil 8 game on the PS5 console. That they were struggling. That the hardware was holding them back. What total BS. So much fud being spread about the PS5. It was like it was a disinformation campaign at times. Spreading false rumors about the PS5 constantly before it launched. https://www.ccn.com/residen... https://www.psu.com/news/ru... Just google it and you'll find countless more. The only positive to come out of this is that the 'insider' will never be listened to again. Few frame drops at times, but I'm sure they will add more patches for launch and after. Optimizing it more and more. Overall the performance is great.
Now just imagine, PS4 & XBOne versions were also announced.
Same engine as RE7. It will run just fine but at lower res and without Ray tracing.
@HusbandAndWifeGaming Yeah, exactly!
Also zx spectrum versions. Running at 256x192 using 8 colors, ray-tracing was tested but cut the fps to 0.1fps in most area's./s
That rumor was debunked a few days after it was made.He was basically salty cuz of bad Xbox news. https://www.gamespot.com/fo...
Didn't stop all the gutter trash gaming websites reporting on it. Didn't stop all the youtubers getting clicks off it. A Lie can travel half way around the world, while the Truth is just putting it's shoes on. But I also remember, that Dusk guy defending himself on twitter. He was saying, "Look it's what I have heard. It's true" and shit like that. It doesn't matter. He was part of the misinformation campaign against the PS5. Just a cog in the whole shit machine.
No he was debunked months ago lol! Like in the summer time ago.
"According to a reliable industry source, Resident Evil 8 can't run properly on PlayStation 5 at 1080p 60fps"
That insider was just looking for attention. He was outed on resetera by an actual Sony developer and I believe he's been banned. DuskGolem
Reminds of that certain person that was leader of the U.S. some days ago. Ms and gang reminds me of a certain group pf leaders in the country.
Just Google it and you can you can find anything. I mean look at the "sites" you post, first time I've heard of them
I think it was the old gen versions that they had issues with. Why they are not doing those anymore which is the right move
Resident Evil 8 is on PS4 and PS5 according to Capcom. What are you talking about?
He also said it was having troubles during development but it's ok likely it'll be polished. This is also a demo not in the game. For all you know the actual game could have more drops because they're open areas. I listen to him. He leaked monster Hunter rise and the fact it was being made on the RE engine. He also said RE8 is cross gen which we just found out as true And the shenmue anime which was oddly specific.
"This is also a demo not in the game" In the stream the dev said what you see in the demo you can also expect the same quality in the game. So you're wrong and the game is months away. For all you know they could optimize and polish it even more in the following months. "I listen to him." Well maybe you should stop listening to him. Apparently, he has stopped trying to be an 'insider' anymore.
The X Box cappin crowd is taking more Ls by the day.
But it is having trouble, it's running at non-native reconstructed 4K and it's having a hard time maintaining 60FPS in an inside environment with no enemies or real interaction.
Goes to show the hitman devs did a terrible job with their PS5 port.
They didnt. The game runs at locked 6o frames. The Series X run at 4k, but there are already video showing the game droping into 39 frames and with average of low 40 frames, while the PS5 runs at locked 60 frames. DF.... huge diference.
@waverider But, you won't hear much about that. Like everything else with Playstation, they'll just ignore it and act like it doesn't exist.
that's not true, there is one instance in a level where the frame dips. It runs locked the rest of the time at native 4k. Don't spread misinformation please.
@ Neon.. DF don't check the whole game. They choose a slice of gameplay and test them. They don't test the whole game. So there might well be instances of what the OP is talking about.
The video showing the low frame rate (besides in the one area shown in SF video) was debunked by John Linneman on Twitter. https://twitter.com/dark1x/... There have been reports of glitches in the XSX version with reflections, however.
Wow if true DF is REALLY dropping the ball with their pro Xbox bias. @potatoseal But they do act like they checked the whole game.
Did you even watch the video? The framerate even dropped to 5fps and barely stayed at 60
Lets wait till the game launches. There are open village sections in the game too.
They sure did . Did you also know the game on the xbox 1 X runs quite poorly compared to the ps4 pro version ? This is why I dont think the Hitman devs are a good guide of the power of the ps5, just doesnt add up for all the versions of that game.
They can patch it though
But that insider told me the PS5 struggles to maintain 1440p!
Well it's really a PS4 game, so it better run at 60 fps 4k on PS5.
Do games need to look better than GoT, tlou2 or re7? Up the resolution, framerate and add RT and it'll look stunning
Have you played Demon's Souls on PS5? I don't think so, if you had, then you would not be saying that.
Games don't "need" to exist at all. But yes, I obviously I want games to look better than they did on an old console last year, and games that are designed for an old system and slightly updated for a new one are not going to look as good as games designed from the ground up for the better hardware. It's especially frustrating when it's being held back without good reason. By May, the type of person who buys RE games in the launch window will have already gotten a PS5.
You're one of those but but but, PS5 on fire, PS5 can't do ray tracing, only 9 tflops (less as soon as you put the disc in), now only a PS4 game. What Next?
Umm no. The only thing I am is mad that devs keep limiting PS5 games by making them cross gen, even though people stop buying non-casual titles on old hardware once new systems are out. So if devs are going to limit their games by designing them for PS4, then yes, I absolutely want them to run at flawless 60 fps 4k on PS5, because there are no excuses at that point. Btw, PS5 is over 10 tflops (not that tflops are everything, as we've learned from PS5 games often looking and running better than SX versions). I don't even know what you are talking about with the PS5 on fire or lower tflops when you put the disc in stuff, unless you are just making fun of the stuff Xbox apologists make up.
you have to understand, design limits have been in games for the last 20+ years, suddenly the sky is the limit i don't think developers will be taking advantage of the PS5 for a very long time, it will be an interesting generation for sure
Well it's not exactly 60fps mind you but i believe the final product will deliver most of it
So Hitman could do it too if it was better optimized.
Now we're talking!
What pc can run this at 4k 60fps with Ray tracing. Ps5 £359...
When you play on PC you get a premium experience so you do not expect to pay a similar price. Its like getting a Honda Civic and asking "what Ferrari can get me to work on time for $18,000?"
What? How is that a fair example the OP asked a fair question can a $500 pc run this game at 4k with 60FPS and some level of ray tracing Answer is absolutely not
95% of pcs are not a premium experience PS5 is like a rtx 2080 which is a premium experience, in fact the PS5 was 13% away from matching a rtx 3070 were a long way away from seeing what a PS5 can really do
Just played it and I was surprised at how good it looks. Definitely the youtube stream did NOT do the game any justice.
Capcom and Valve games have great optimization.
Raytracing seems like it would be super beneficial for the genre.
I cannot see any ray tracing effect on demo? So this game support ray tracing or not?
played the demo and failed to see any RT
Shadows are not RT and the lighting is not RT either. Flashlight does not cast shadows. and windows and glass do not reflect like they would with RT. So failed to see how RT is being used
Well apparently there is ray-tracing. https://wccftech.com/reside...
slight RT on reflections, Digital Foundry just released a video on it and very little RT. I think the full game will have more but I would not be touting this for it RT.
I love how every article for this demo is using that big boobed thumbnail
"Amazing Chest Ahead"
Just played it on my PS5 and was blown away by it! will be getting this day 1 for sure! and now playing RE7 again now that i am in the mood! Also a FYI to any other RE fans... RE2 and 3 Remakes run silky smooth on PS5!!!
So many fanboys in 1 place
This looks miles better than hitman 3 and with ray tracing wow.. somethings not right I think PS5 could of hit native 4K with hitman 3
It's far from a locked 60, I'm seeing a large amount of dips in this demo, which makes me worried about the game when there are enemies and combat at play. Still, the RE Engine in incredible, I hope they can optimize and lock it before the release.
Agreed. Especially since these environments are all inside and it's happening when only one enemy is onscreen. There's still plenty of time to fix, but I wonder about the dips in an outside environment with at least 3 enemies onscreen at once.
It’s a demo not a fished product they are not going to spend extra resources on optimising to get a perfect 60fps I have just completed the demo it was literally 15 minutes long you could speed run it under 5 minutes don’t Judge the performance on this demo
Will wait for the high end PC version 😁 But if the game had a choice on PS5, 4K 60 ray tracing or 1080p 120fps ray tracing I would always choose the 1080/120 mode. It's a much better gaming experience, 60fps, at least for me just doesn't cut it. Only exception would be MMOs where the CPU comes more into play and you will dip in the 30s or less will not matter if you have the best GPU your dropping frames 😉
Looking at Hitman 3 running at 1800P like 🤔.
Was a great demo to show off sound and detail. Up close texture quality is pretty hit and miss, hope that improves in the final game
That ray tracing is of very low quality and no dynamic shadows to speak of in the demo, that dungeon section should of been full of them but nup, im really hoping they are added in the retail version.
Pretty Neat. This should be the standard for PS5 games. 4K 60FPS Ray Tracing. Hopefully upcoming games follow suit.
don't see any ps5 to check if it's true
It's so weird for me to look at these comments... I'm a gamer that of course loves amazing graphics but we are in the comments section planning about Resident Evil 8's graphics that look stellar as if a lower resolution brick or room will hurt our game play emerging when we had a blast playing this on the PlayStation 2 or even... 1. Of course the developers will optimize this game, as we know Resident Evil 7 was amazing and I'm sure this will be also, graphically and gameplay-wise but... In contrast, it doesn't look anywhere near as crappy as the multiplayer portion of it and that we should be grateful for. Ironically regardless of what this game looks like or the multiplayer, we're still going to give it a chance no matter how much crap we talk.
