Atomic Heart PS5 vs Xbox Series vs PC Comparison: Which Platform Is Best

Mundfish’s first-person shooter action role-playing game, Atomic Heart, is now available on the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and if you’re on the fence about which version to pick up, read ahead.

The game features only one graphics mode on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. As for the PC version of Atomic Heart, the highest available graphics settings offers better draw distance, shadow quality, textures, anisotropic filtering, post-processing effects and vegetation density than the PS5 and Xbox Series versions.


That said, the PC version currently has some problems with certain screen space reflections, likely due to a bug. In addition, the streetlights in both the PS5 and PC versions are poorly oriented. The PC version is expected to receive ray-tracing support via an update that is said to arrive in the next few days.

In terms of resolution, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions run at a dynamic 4K (2160p), with the common resolution during interior sections being 2160p and 1620p to 1800p in the outdoor areas. Meanwhile, the Xbox Series S runs the game at a dynamic 1080p, with the common resolution during interior sections being 1080p and 900p in the outdoors areas.

In terms of performance, the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S target a frame rate of 60fps. While both the PS5 and Xbox Series X do a good job of maintaining the target frame rate, the Xbox Series S, despite running at a much lower resolution, fails to maintain a stable 60fps in the outdoor areas of the game. On certain occasions, the frame rate drops all the way down to 30fps during cutscenes on all consoles. Additionally, all versions of Atomic Heart, including PC, suffer from issues associated with enemy animation frame rate.

Load times in Atomic Heart are quickest on PC, followed by the PS5 version, and then the Xbox Series consoles.

All in all, it’s hard to go wrong with either the Xbox Series X and PS5 version of Atomic Heart, and your choice ultimately comes down to your controller preference. On the other hand, the PC version delivers a superior experience on capable hardware, with the ability to run at higher frame rates and with better visuals.
