The Watch Dogs Legion frame rate and resolution has been confirmed for both next-gen consoles. Taking to a recent Reddit AMA, Lathieeshe Thillainathan, the Live Producer of Watch Dogs Legion confirmed that both next-gen consoles will support 4K resolution, 30fps (frames per second), along with ray tracing.
He didn’t confirm whether we would see all three in one mode or if ray tracing would be a separate graphic mode with dynamic 4K, but he did in the least confirm that the Xbox Series X will indeed run at 4K 30FPS when asked specifically about the console.
No details on whether a performance mode (higher than 30fps) was given either.
To compare, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been confirmed to run at 4K 60fps on the Xbox Series X and apparently PS5 (according to Digital Foundry DE). Both title are set to be massive open world, however with Legion being more focused on it’s online aspect versus Valhalla mostly being single-player centric, perhaps this may be the reason why the FPS isn’t going to be as high with 4K enabled. That, and the fact that players can apparently control any NPC in the game, one could say that Watch Dogs Legion has more tech behind it when it comes to it’s open world. Then again, we still don’t know if there will be a performance mode of some sort.
Guess we’ll learn more as we get closer to launch, which will be happening in just a few short weeks. Watch Dogs Legion is releasing on October 30 for current gen consoles, with the next-gen versions arriving on the days of the Xbox Series and PS5 launch.
