SGW3 Dev: Our Insights Prove the Power of PS4 Pro; We’ll Have HDR & MultiGPU Support, but no DX12
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is the third entry in the franchise created by developer/publisher CI Games. The game has been recently delayed from its old January release date to April 4th, 2017 with the developers citing optimization work across all the platforms (PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) as the main cause for this new delay.
We've reached out to CI Games in order to learn more about this tactical first-person shooter. This is just a taste of the full interview focused on the tech related questions.
Are you using CryEngine V to develop this game? Do you plan to use the engine's voxel-based Global Illumination solution?
We are using a customized version of the CryEngine and do not plan to use the voxel-based GI solution.
What resolution and frame rate are your targeting for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game?
What do you think of PlayStation 4 Pro and which enhancements are you planning for this version? Is the Pro console powerful enough to deliver 4K gaming?
We are very excited about the possibilities of the PS4 Pro and definitely plan to explore some of the features to deliver a unique experience to the Pro owners, without being unfair towards the PS4 players.
The PS4 Pro is built to sport 4K gaming and our insights so far prove the power of this technology.
We are already looking forward to take all the technological advantages offered by the PS4 Pro into our development of our future games.
With more and more games getting HDR support, do you intend to add this new technology to Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3? If so, on which platforms?
We are planning to offer HDR support for the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One S.
Are you going to support multiGPU configurations at launch on PC? What about DirectX 12?
Yes, we will support multiGPU configs at launch. But due to technical reasons, we will not support DX12.
Check back tomorrow for our full interview, featuring plenty of new gameplay details on Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3.
