Anthem is an upcoming shared world third-person shooter from BioWare. BioWare is the studio behind famous franchises like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Anthem is expected to launch on February 22, 2019, but that hasn't stopped the developer from releasing new details about the project.
Aside from featuring a plethora of content at launch, Anthem should get new cosmetic items, creatures, and even regions after launch. However, ever since news broke that the game would support Xbox One X, many gamers have been patiently waiting to know the details. Would this "next-generation" experience run at native 4K on Microsoft's new machine? How does it compare to the PlayStation 4 Pro? Luckily, all of these questions were answered by Digital Foundry today.
The base Xbox One achieves 900p resolution while the base PlayStation 4 runs at 1080p. The PlayStation 4 Pro manages to hit 1800p, but the Xbox One X takes the prize with a native 4K resolution. In an earlier analysis, Digital Foundry discovered that there were "checkerboarding" artifacts on all versions — even PC — but that's not the case anymore.
Aside from PC, the Xbox One X version should be the cleanest. Hopefully BioWare will be able to iron out the performance issues before launch. Anthem needs to be a polished game when it launches towards the end of this month. However, only time will tell. A lot of gamers are skeptical given how Mass Effect: Andromeda turned out.
