Strange Brigade To Run at 1800p with Higher Quality AF on Xbox One X; PS4 Pro Runs at 1440p
Rebellion's Strange Brigade, a third-person action/adventure game playable solo or in co-op with up to four players, is due for release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in less than two months.
Kai was able to interview Lead Designer Steve Bristow at E3, who shared with him a slew of gameplay and story details in the process. However, we had to get in touch with a programmer to receive the technical details on how Strange Brigade runs on the different high-end platforms.
Rebellion got back to us today and we're now able to confirm the developers are targeting 1440p rendering, larger draw distance and improved screen space reflections for the PlayStation 4 Pro compared to the base PlayStation 4 version of the game. The Xbox One X version will receive the same enhancements as well as higher quality texture filtering (presumably anisotropic) and 1800p rendering.
Of course, PC users (where the game will be optimized for AMD graphics cards) will be able to go higher with the resolution, which we're told will be unlimited (presumably meaning that it can go beyond 4K for downscaling purposes), while it isn't clear yet whether the frame rate will be unlocked beyond 60FPS as well. We'll let you know once that's confirmed.
