Updated May 10, 2019: According to a new statement by Creative Director David Dedeine, the Xbox One X has an "upscaled version" of the game, and it's "not native 4K." Dedeine went on to talk about what he expects from next-generation hardware as well. Dedeine said, "As a player, I would like to be surprised and even more, entertained, connected to the world, as well as immersed in intense solo experiences. As a video game professional I'm looking forward to seeing how we will have to adapt the way we work to the new technologies, new control systems, new methods… It's a way to rethink our processes, our concepts, it's a huge source of motivation and creativity."
A Plague Tale: Innocence is an adventure game that blends action, adventure, and stealth. The title follows protagonists Amicia and her little brother Hugo, both orphans and on the run from the terrifying inquisition. Our young heroes will need to survive against an even greater danger, supernatural swarms of rats that appeared with the great plague, infecting cities and countryside alike.
While the game is shaping up to be an interesting experience, it's also Xbox One X Enhanced. Today, developer Asobo Studio discussed what players can expect on the system. As with many other titles nowadays, the team confirmed that it runs at 4K resolution on Microsoft's newest console. This means that the title should look incredibly crisp.
Xbox One X players can look forward to 4K resolution, giving unparalleled definition to the landscapes, people, and horrors of A Plague Tale's world.
While the title runs at 4K resolution, it's unclear if this is a native 4K image or checkerboarded. Only a handful of games use checkerboard rendering on Xbox One X so chances are that's not the case here. We've reached out to Asobo for confirmation, and shall let you know as soon as we know more.
