The game looked pretty blurry on 1080p displays, and no matter how stunning a game's graphics are, a muddy resolution detracts from the experience. Luckily, the Xbox One X version runs at 1440p and looks quite good on a 4K display. Aside from that, Remedy Entertainment has made several performance optimizations so it runs at 30 FPS almost all the time.
Unfortunately, there are other problems that the upgrade adds to the experience. The Xbox One X version has many strange visual artifacts and other glitches. According to a report by Eurogamer, "surfaces in the game now exhibit highly distracting visual noise and flicker that ruin the stability of the image."
We played the game on Xbox One X and noticed these problems too. While they might not be as noticeable, they still make the game seem unoptimized. Hopefully the developer is aware of the issue and the team is working on a patch. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
Quantum Break is a third-person shooter which focuses on time travel. In the aftermath of a split-second explosion that fractures time itself, two people find they have changed and gained extraordinary abilities. One of them travels through time and becomes hell-bent on controlling this power. The other uses these new abilities to attempt to defeat him – and fix time before it tears itself irreparably apart. Both face overwhelming odds and make dramatic choices that will determine the shape of the future.
