Xbox One X's Power Lets Assassin's Creed Origins In 4K, Ubisoft Says

One of the most significant pieces in gaming sector this year has been the advent of Microsoft Xbox One X, the super-powerful $500 gaming console.

What we do know is that Assassin's Creed Origins is one of the games that will be marketed for Xbox One and specifically for Xbox One X, where it's been confirmed to run at dynamic 4K with checkerboard rendering and HDR support. There is an ideal steadiness between the performance and pictorial excellence because of 1800 p in Killing Floor 2. Using the additional power of the Xbox One X allowed Tripwire to hit a fixed resolution on the machine, compared to checkerboarding techniques used on the PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game.

The game was initially released for the PlayStation 4 and PC in November previous year. Elder also said that the game runs at a higher frame rate on the Xbox One X than on the base Xbox One.

This is due to frame rate issues and means Killing Floor 2 will look similar to the PS4 Pro version, now available.

Killing Floor 2 will feature several enhancements that make use of the better hardware on the Xbox One X, but among them will not be 4K resolution. To counteract the lower resolution, all of the graphics for Killing Floor 2 will be running on their Ultra settings and the resolution on the shadow maps and their draw distances will be improved for the X. What that does on Xbox One X is it enables us to render the game in full 4K.

Microsoft has been walking a fine line in describing the Xbox One X and its capabilities since E3. For the PS4 Pro, it's more likely to handle Origins at sub-4K resolutions for most of the game.

While Killing Floor 2 will not run at native 4K on the Xbox One X, the inclusion of all content packs for the game and the action that it offers could be enough reason to interest gamers in trying out the first-person shooter on the upcoming console.
