Orphan of the Machine features 120 FPS Xbox Series X exclusive mode
Let's hope we see more of that performance.
What you need to know
- Microsoft unveiled the Xbox Series X specifications a while back.
- Since then, many developers have promised Xbox Series X games.
- Dynamic Voltage Games recently revealed "Orphan of the Machine."
- The game runs at 4K resolution and 120 frames per second on the system.
Recently, Microsoft and Sony unveiled Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 (PS5) specifications. The Xbox Series X is a minimum of 1.875 teraflops more powerful than Sony's machine, and it should result in better visuals. While a few games have been announced for Microsoft's upcoming console, there's another one in the works that runs at 4K resolution and 120 frames per second (FPS).
Recently, Dynamic Voltage Games said that it was going to unveil its first Xbox Series X exclusive. While the game is now going multiplatform due to financial regions, we do know that it runs at 4K 120 FPS only on Microsoft's console. Hopefully, this is going to be the norm going forward. We definitely don't want to see 4K 30 FPS games in the future.
The upcoming game is called "Orphan of the Machine" and looks rather unique. Dynamic Voltage Games makes special titles like Pirates of First Star, an adventure that uses a combination of photographed claymation and real-time 3D visuals to achieve a unique art style from the 1990s.
On ResetEra, Digital Foundry's Alexander Battaglia said the following about the Xbox Series X's graphics processing unit (GPU). Keep in mind that these aren't Digital Foundry's official views on the matter, just one expert who works there.
He also discussed how open-world games were designed and those claiming that the PS5's solid-state drive would dramatically change development of them were mistaken.
While it's still too early to say definitively what the performance difference between the two systems is, we do know that the Xbox Series X doesn't overlock and underclock its processors, so it delivers more performance on both fronts. We'll have to wait for final analyses by Digital Foundry, Battaglia mostly wrapped it up by confirming that the Xbox Series X would have better ray-tracing performance and said the following.
Sony needs to discuss more of information like variable-rate shading and other techniques so that we get a clearer picture of the capabilities of both systems. Right now, we know for a fact that the Xbox Series X has quite a significant advantage when it comes to the main processors in the console.
