Everyone is now expecting better and better graphics for any video game that is being released for either PC or consoles. Well, we have some good news for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners, as according to some reports, the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda will be able to run at 900p on Microsoft’s Xbox One and 1080p on Sony’s PlayStation 4.
Aaryn Flynn, the studio general manager and vice president of BioWare, has already confirmed what we’ve told you above, but he also added that the PlayStation 4 will be able to run the Mass Effect Andromeda at a resolution of 1800p. When it comes to the frame rate, you should know that it will be capped at 30FPS across the board.
However, if you play the game on PC and you have a high end system, you will be able to play at a way higher FPS. Keep in mind that even if you will play this game from a high-end PC, you might notice a 30FPS cap in cutscenes, but that will not be the case when you will actually play the game. Unfortunately, the PS4 Pro doesn’t have enough power to run the game at 2160p resolution yet, which is usually the standard resolution for 4K gaming.
We remind you that “The Last of Us: Remastered” runs at 1800p on the PlayStation 4 Pro, but it is not hitting the 60FPS very frequently. It is good to know that there is a 2.5 million pixel difference between the 1800p and 2160p resolution.
It is quite disappointing that the PlayStation 4 Pro will not be able to run the game at 60FPS on the 1800p resolution, which is what Naughty Dog has targeted for “The Last of Us: Remastered”. We think that 30FPS is not good enough and most of the gamers will be quite disappointed of it.
We have to agree that the PlayStation 4 still has more power than the Xbox One console and that the PlayStation 4 Pro is better than the two mentioned consoles. The question is: why the developers had to limit the game at 30FPS on all consoles?
Mass Effect Andromeda will be released for PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Windows PC on March 21, 2016.
