So y’all want a resolution? Most upcoming games these days have a slight difference between console versions. Namely the fact that the PlayStation 4 can crank out full 1080p visuals over the Xbox One, which usually hovers around the 900p range. A not very noticeable difference at all, but one that massively matters to tech-heads. Alien: Isolation however, is bucking that trend with a full HD release across both new-gen platforms.
There’ll be “no noticeable” difference between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Alien: Isolation, according to Creative Assembly’s Gary Napper. “I think with frame rate it’s pretty comparable. There’s no noticeable drop or change in graphics between them,” Napper said to Total Xbox.
As per usual though, expect the PC platform to get the most out of the game visually, as Napper said that “Obviously there are a lot more options to tweak and scale up on the PC.”
Still, the game is available on old-gen systems such as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, although Napper explained that there was no one lead platform during the development of the game, which allowed the team to reach such a wide level of console parity:
We build it on one central engine and then kick it out to different versions, So when I think about working on the game it’s almost platform agnostic because I only think about the differences between platforms and the different mechanics we can use like the light on the PS4 pad and the stuff with Kinect 2.0.
Alien Isolation: Jy Sal Kak Edition is out in October. You can celebrate the horror of having a phallic-headed monster with acidgasm blood that happens to have an interest in attaching face-rape hugging organisms to your face with a new trailer:
