Microsoft has been saying for a while now that Xbox One X versions of multi platform games will look and run better than any other console on the market. We already know on paper how powerful the Xbox One X is, and the demo footage we have seen is certainly impressive. But it’s still good to hear from the people actually building the games . As they’ll give honest unbiased Opinions . And it looks like Project Cars 2 will look better on Microsoft’s Xbox One X.
Speaking to Trusted Reviews, game director Stephen Viljoen said people playing on Xbox One X will see the best-looking version of the game on console.
“I can’t tell you exactly what all the various differences when you’re on Xbox One X versus on Playstaion 4 Pro, but obviously they’ll be higher [on Xbox One X], so there will be a significant, a noticeable improvement, because you have better hardware.
Also previous comments made by andy tudor back this statement up .
While speaking to GamingBolt, the game’s Creative Director Andy Tudor was pretty frank about how the game might improve on next-gen Xbox hardware.
“We may go higher resolution on One compared to Pro, or we may keep lower res but increase detail. Again, too early to say. And if we can do something extra on one x easily we will do it. We won’t hold it back due to Pro.”
This is no surprise to hear, as the Xbox One X is the most powerful console ever made. According to Microsoft, it has 40 percent more power than the Playstaion 4 Pro . Project Cars 2 will put physics at the core, so that the driving experience is consistent across platforms, regardless of how powerful the machine is that you’re running it on. As such, visual fidelity is something that can be compromised, though when it comes to the console versions the developer will optimize the game , Not leaving it down to the player as on PC.
While the PC edition of Project Cars 2 will look and perform the best if you have a beefy enough rig, Viljoen remarked that the Xbox One X is a “great piece of hardware.” The developer is looking forward to “making the most of it,” adding that Project Cars 2 will look and run better on Xbox One X than any other system out there apart from a high-end PC.
while the developer’s comments seem pretty assertive, it may be too early for car fans to get their engines revved up too much. After all, Project CARS 2 was first officially revealed this February . While the title is slated for a “late 2017” arrival and has been in the works since 2015, information about the game has been slim compared to other titles . We know the final product will feature a grand total of 60 tracks and 170 cars including the Acura NSX, Nissan GT-R , GT3 and McLaren 650S
Project Cars 2 launches on September 22 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. .
