Upcoming Xbox One exclusive “Sunset Overdrive” is set to run at 900p and 30FPS. The brand’s development director says:
“If you play the game and see the experience, we are pretty comfortable where we are in terms of frame rate and resolution wise. We rather just focus on optimizing what you can see on the screen and that we think will create a better experience overall”. [Source: Gaming Bolt]
Both an Amazon listing and an Xbox.com listing have indicated that the upcoming “Rise of the Tomb Raider” is being developed not just for PC and next gen consoles, but Xbox 360 and PS3 as well.
That comes as a surprise as the press release last week was worded in a way that it sounded like next gen hardware only. That said, the sales potential for the game will be much greater if available for all of them. [Source: Cinema Blend]
Assassin’s Creed: Unity
Ubisoft has confirmed that the upcoming “Assassin’s Creed Unity” will NOT have competitive multiplayer modes, ditching those in favor of four-player co-op alongside the regular single player campaign missions. This makes ‘Unity’ the first game in the series since “Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood” not to have a competitive component.
They’ve also cut the option of playing as a woman, the game’s revolutionary hero Arno and any friends who join you in the game will be customisable male assassins only. The decision is said to be due to a lack of resources. [Source: EuroGamer]
Dead Rising 3
It has been confirmed the upcoming PC version of the Xbox One game has been “optimized” for 30fps. User can uncap and use a higher frame rate, but it will be at their own risk and potentially quite glitchy.
The developer says “we just really dont know what’s gonna happen, you might see some weird stuff with physics, some weird stuff with zombies… I really dont believe you’re losing anything by playing at 30 frames per second. If you want feel free to uncap it, but it’s gonna be wild and crazy.” [Source: NeoGAF]
