What will Shadow of the Tomb Raider be like on Xbox One X? Any good enhancements?
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is less than a month away from release, and as such, the team behind the game are showing off more and more of the title. But, for those getting the Xbox One X version of the game, you’ll get a bunch of enhancements that truly show off the power of the system. And the Xbox team spelled out what those would be like:
“To ensure that Shadow of the Tomb Raider looked crisp and amazingly polished on Xbox One X, we have worked incredibly hard to fully support HDR mode,” explained Eidos-Montreal Programming Director Frederic Robichaud. “We’ve revamped the entire pipeline to be HDR from the get go: realistic lights intensity calibration, HDR textures and global illumination energy conservation.”
“In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, we offer two modes for players: High Resolution and High Framerate mode. With the GPU power of the Xbox One X, we were able to get 4K at a constant 30 FPS and with the CPU boost, we are targeting 60 FPS with full HD (1080p) in High Framerate mode,” he added.
They even made sure that it could handle higher framerates:
“If the player chooses the High Framerate mode,” he explained, “they will enjoy the fluidity and reactivity of the controls in a seamless gameplay experience.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider arrives on September 14th.
