Scarlet Nexus demo is out now for the PS4 and PS5. This demo was already available on the Xbox One and XSX. Here’s a comparison between both platforms.
Scarlet Nexus supports both the current-generation consoles and there doesn’t appear to be any major discernable difference between both platforms. They render at native 4K at 60 FPS and achieve their desired performance without any major issues.
PS5 does have a slight edge with load times which are faster on it. As for the Xbox Series S, it renders at 1440p resolution. The game only supports 30 FPS on the last-generation consoles instead of the 60, as is the case with the current generation.
Here is an overview of the game taken from the Steam Store.
In the far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changed the world as we knew it. As humanity entered this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were our only chance to fight the onslaught from above. Since then, psionics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), humanity’s last line of defense.
Featuring a dual story, begin your adventure with either Yuito Sumeragi, an energetic recruit from a prestigious political family or Kasane Randall, the mysterious scout whose power and skill has gained great notoriety among the OSF. As their different experiences interweave with each other, it is only then that you will reveal the full story and unlock all the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities in SCARLET NEXUS.
Kinetic Psychic Combat – Using psycho-kinetic abilities, the world around you becomes your greatest weapon. Lift, break and throw pieces of your environment to build your attack combos and lay waste to your enemies.
