Mortal Shell has received an Enhanced Edition on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. This version runs at 60 FPS which is an upgrade over the PS4 and Xbox One.
Mortal Shell update is out for a while now. Our friends at VGTech have shared a technical analysis for the PS5 and Xbox Series version giving us an overview of what to expect from this native port for Mortal Shell.
According to VG Tech, the game runs at 1440p resolution on the PS5 while the Xbox Series X enjoys a slightly higher 1800p resolution that is dynamic. The same is true for the Xbox Series S which has a similar limit for the dynamic resolution but it only manages to hit closer to 1200p.
The biggest upgrade appears to be 60 FPS considering the game originally ran at 30 FPS on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. This leads to better controller response which is crucial for a game like Mortal Shell.
The only resolution found on PS5 was 2560×1440.
Xbox Series S uses a dynamic resolution with the highest native resolution found being approximately 2304×1296 and the lowest native resolution found being approximately 2080×1170. Native resolution pixel counts at 2080×1170 seem to be common on Xbox Series S. On Xbox Series S a form of temporal reconstruction is used to increase the resolution up to 3200×1800.
Xbox Series X uses a dynamic resolution with the highest native resolution found being 3200×1800 and the lowest native resolution found being approximately 2560×1440. Native resolution pixel counts at or near 3200×1800 seem to be common on Xbox Series X. On Xbox Series X a form of temporal reconstruction is used to increase the resolution up to 3200×1800 when rendering natively below this resolution.
All three consoles render the UI at 3840×2160.
The game offers a free upgrade for those who already own it on the PS4 or Xbox One. In this case, they can upgrade to the PS5 or Xbox Series version for free.
While the PS5 and Xbox Series X maintain a mostly solid 60 FPS, the Series S can drop frame and often averages between 50 to 60 FPS. This is still better than the Xbox One X so it is not bad all things considered.
Mortal Shell also utilizes the DualSense controller to provide additional feedback to the players. It is available now for the PS5 and Xbox Series for $29.99.
