Project Scorpio’s 4K Capabilities To Be Showcased By Red Dead Redemption 2, Forza 7 And Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Rumor
With Project Scorpio, the upcoming new console by Microsoft, the company wants to bring true 4K gaming into the console space. Microsoft will obviously need some high profile titles to showcase the console’s capabilities, and it seems like there will be some very hard hitters among them.
According to Windows Central, Forza Motorsport 7 will be the headlining title for Project Scorpio, with Microsoft planning to use it to show how the console can run games at true 4K resolution. Alongside other first party titles, like Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2, some highly anticipated titles like Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption and Star Wars Battlefront 2 will also showcase the console’s true 4K capabilities.
Additionally, it seems like the console will have a sizeable amount of 4K games right at launch, including already released games that should scale well.
Games that use dynamic 900p to 1080p resolution scaling on Xbox One (reducing visual quality to remain stable during intensive scenes) will be able to scale all the way up to 4K on Project Scorpio. This should give Project Scorpio the content it needs to be a worthy purchase proposition as soon as it goes on sale in the during the holiday season of 2017.
A couple of days back, Windows Central Senior Editor Jez Corden revealed that Microsoft might show Project Scorpio to the public this week. He also added that the console won’t surpass the specs revealed, which should put it ahead of the PlayStation 4 in terms of teraflops.
Project Scorpio launches sometime this year in all regions. We will keep you updated on the console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
