Deathloop Resolution And Frame Rate For Xbox Series S and X
The resolution and frame rate for Deathloop on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S across each of its performance modes have been revealed.
Deathloop on Xbox Series X will launch with the Goldenloop update, accessibility options, an extended ending, a FoV-slider, crossplay, and 4 performance modes, details regarding which are now available.
Deathloop Resolution & Frame Rate Options On Xbox Series X
The 4 performance modes offered in Deathloop on Xbox Series X are as follows:
- 4K/60FPS – prioritizes frame rate
- 4K/60FPS – prioritizes visuals
- 4K/30FPS – enables ray traced ambient occlusion
- 1080p/120FPS – when VRR is enabled
These performance modes are the same as those available on PS5, though it remains to be seen how both versions compare with respect to delivering their target frame rate. Meanwhile, these modes will likely be available on the Xbox Series S, but with different target metrics.
The protagonist of Deathloop, Colt, is an assassin trapped in a time loop who has been ordered to kill eight Visionaries across the island before midnight because if he leaves even one alive, the time loop will reset and undo his work. The player uses a combination of stealth, parkour, attack skills, weapons, gadgets, and powers as in Arkane’s previous Dishonored and Prey games to move about the game world. In addition, should Colt pass away before eliminating the eight targets, he will wake up at the start of the loop. They must take out or disable guards, learn Colt’s targets’ habits, and determine the best sequence for taking out those targets with weapons, melee combat, or other natural means.
In Deathloop, each day is divided into four periods (Morning, Noon, Afternoon, and Evening), and moving between the island’s four districts (Updaam, Karl’s Bay, Fristad Rock, and The Complex) causes time to advance. Deathloop’s time loop is not strictly timed and is intended to give players more time and freedom to eliminate these eight targets in one loop. Depending on what time of day the player enters a particular district, the people there have different routines, and what the player does in one district can change the routines in the others.
The game will be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch on September 20, 2022.
