According to developer Rockfish Games, Everspace is getting an Xbox One X upgrade in the coming days. However, what upgrades does the patch bring to the table? Luckily, an interview between the studio and WCCFtech revealed the answer.
When asked about Everspace running on an Xbox One X compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro (PS4 Pro), head of Rockfish Michael Schade provided more details. The game runs at native 4K 30 FPS on Xbox One X and checkerboarded 4K 30 FPS on PS4 Pro. However, the title also features a 60 FPS mode on both consoles, but the Xbox One X version features higher quality scenes even at 1080p. The Xbox One X should have the clearest picture as checkerboard rendering introduces numerous artifacts which detract from image quality.
For a console, the Xbox One X is a beast, and we are glad that it closes the gap... you will always have more computing and rendering power in a high-end gaming PC, but it will come at a much higher cost, in a much bigger casing, and with more maintenance effort. On console, Everspace has never looked better and played more smoothly than on the Xbox One X, hands down... to make the most out of its power when running Everspace on Xbox One X in 4K but also in 1080p because we had to migrate the whole project to a higher version of Unreal Engine... we are excited to share that Everspace runs on Xbox One X in native 4K with 30 FPS looking super crisp. On a full HD screen, it runs with 60 FPS in native 1080p... with an improved level of detail distance settings as well as better shadow, shader, lighting, and visual effects quality.
The PS4 Pro does not provide the same oomph as the Xbox One X does, but even in checkerboard 4K, the game looks significantly better. The same goes for running Everspace on the PS4 Pro in 1080p because we made similar visual improvements as we did on Xbox One X. However, on PS4 Pro, we had to slightly downsample the 3D scene to maintain 60 FPS most of the time.
Everspace is an action-focused single-player space shooter, combining roguelike elements with "AAA" visuals and an intriguing story. It takes you on a challenging journey through an ever-changing universe full of surprises. Your skills, experience and talent for improvisation will be tested continuously as you piece together the puzzle of your existence through encounters with interesting characters, each having their own unique part to tell. Death is inevitable but you become stronger every time you're killed.
