According to GamingBolt, they had an interview with Redout Developer 34BigThings and they are working on this futuristic racer called Redout. It’s like something between F-Zero from Nintendo and Wipeout on PS4. It’s like a futuristic racer very fast, very fluid. There’s good previews about this game from people who actually played it.
There’s some good news for PS4 Pro owners apparently because GamingBolt asked whether they will be able to make this game to run in native 4k 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4 Pro? And developer said that:
“Optimization is an art that takes patience and time,” they said. “We are trying to make it in time for launch, but we can’t be sure at the moment.”
And then the was also asked about other improvements for PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game and he said that:
“HDR is there, if your TV supports it. But honestly I would say the huge performance boost is the main reason to play Redout on a Pro.”
It’s a bit confusing he’s saying that there’s going to be performance boost on the PlayStation 4 Pro. We are not sure what he’s referring to, he’s maybe talking about framerate which is 60 FPS because they want to make this game 60 FPS. But as far as we know this game runs on regular PS4 in 60 FPS as well and not sure about Xbox One version because we know that this game is going to be available on Xbox One as well and there’s no mention of Xbox One X. Also we are not sure what sort of performance he’s talking about. Maybe the framerate drops on PlayStation 4 Pro or maybe PlayStation 4 Pro will actually have a better performance.
As for the native 4k resolution it’s possible, Wipeout remastered is running in native 4k/60 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro already and Wipeout seems to be a little bit more kind of graphically demanding. Also the developer commented on the effort that it takes to port the game to PS4 from PS4 Pro, he actually said that he’s kind of aligned with what Mark Cerny did say a while ago that it’s actually take roughly around 0.2 or 0.3% of the overall effort to port the game from PS4 to PS4 Pro. He also added:
“For us the process has been straightforward and didn’t bring up anything we weren’t expecting already. And [we] loved the performances.”
We’ll see how that goes, they are still optimizing the game for PS4 Pro. The game is releasing on the August 29th for Xbox One, PS4. Stay tuned for more information.
