Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice supports the mid-generation hardware upgrade hardware with PS4 Pro and Xbox One X both getting a jump over their predecessors. Which one is the best version out of both systems?
When it comes to these more expensive platforms, the biggest selling point is usually a higher resolution but sometimes it can also lead to better performance in games. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice offers both of these upgrades over the base PS4 and Xbox One.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice runs at the same resolution on both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One. This is according to the folks over at Digital Foundry on Eurogamer. They have shared an in-depth analysis of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice running on both platforms including the base PS4 and Xbox One and shared their findings in a detailed article.
The resolution of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is somewhat an interesting subject matter. On the base consoles, the PS4 manages to handle the game at a smooth 1080p resolution while the Xbox One settles on a little lower resolution at 900p.
The good news though is that due to the use of TAA, or Temporal Anti-aliasing as explained by Digital Foundry, the game looks nice and clean no matter which platform you pick for it.
As far as the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X are concerned, the game manages to hit 1800p for both of them. The Xbox One X enjoys a cleaner looking image than the PS4 Pro.
The frame rate of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice on the PS4 and Xbox One is 30 FPS or frames per second. Digital Foundry talks about the frame pacing being a big problem which seems to lead to judder and can affect the performance in the game.
PS4 Pro and Xbox One X run at an uncapped frame rate, which we have reported in the past. Both of these platforms don’t seem to hit 60 FPS at all, which is disappointing. They do offer better performance due to the lack of frame pacing.
All in all, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sounds like a solid performing and good looking game on consoles. You can pick a platform that you like without having to worry about any significant issues on them.
