Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Warhorse Studios' ambitious narrative-driven open-world role-playing game (RPG), is set to make its debut next month. On track for an Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC release on February 13, the game's launch is drawing close, with final specifics beginning to surface.
While the game's developer has previously discussed its plans to deliver graphical enhancements for Xbox One X, an interview with Wccftech has unveiled firmer details on what to expect. Speaking with Warhorse's Tobias Stolz-Zwilling, it has been confirmed that the game will be targeting 1440p resolution on Microsoft's flagship console. The Xbox One X version will also see improved global illumination, improved shadows, better lighting and increased level of detail (LOD) distances. Details on framerate weren't specified.
This will make for the best visuals among the console versions, with PC assumedly taking lead. Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro is currently expected to hit 1080p resolution at launch, while the standard Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are set to hit 900p. Cutbacks in global illumination and particle effects simulation have also been detailed for other console versions, though Warhorse assures it's pushing "all platforms to their limits."
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is also one of the few games on current generation consoles built around CryEngine. Due to limitations in CryEngine 3.8.6, support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) won't be offered across any platforms.
