With October about to end, we are getting closer and closer to the launch of the new Microsoft consoles, Xbox Series X and S. Having lived this atypical 2020 where there have been no live events due to COVID-19, it has really been difficult to be able to see them working up close, and that is why we have been getting to know their characteristics and their potential very little by little.
One of the elements that will make the difference in the next generation of consoles will undoubtedly be the SSD, since the difference in performance of this with the disks used to date is abysmal. In fact, according to the development team of the fun Maneater, the power is such that it ‘cannot be underestimated’.
Xbox Series Will Remove Many Developer Limitations
In an interview for Xbox Wire , Maneater producer David Amata, the most important element in developing the Xbox Series version of his video game is undoubtedly the SSD:
The speed of the SSD within the Xbox Series X cannot be understated. It has allowed us the freedom to make the world Maneater is even more impressive visually, helped to reduce load times and even helped to increase the draw distance.
In addition, when asked about future projects, he comments that what they have planned would not have been possible for Xbox One, and that the new consoles are going to ‘raise the bar’ for video game development:
The power and capabilities of this new generation have raised the bar for our limitations with consoles. Many times we have to sacrifice some amazing ideas for our games because they simply cannot be implemented with current generation hardware. Now, more than ever, we are excited to begin to fully realize our vision for what comes next from Tripwire.
Xbox Series X | S will hit the market on November 10 , and from that same day we will be able to enjoy the new generation version of this Maneater.
Watch Dogs Expansion: Legion Titled Bloodline Officially Released Today
Some time ago, Ubisoft announced the presence of an expansion for its open-world game, Watch Dogs: Legion, entitled Bloodline.
The expansion, which presents the stories of two iconic characters from the Watch Dogs series, namely Aiden Pearce and Wrench, has finally been launched this Wednesday (7/7/21).
The Bloodline expansion is currently available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via EGS or the Ubisoft Store.
In this expansion, players will later play as Aiden Pearce who must find Wrench because he has a special task so that his brother Jackson is not harmed.
In addition to bringing the Bloodline expansion, Ubisoft is also presenting a new Season Pass in Watch Dogs: Legion which brings a lot of interesting content and also the option to add Aiden or Wrench to DedSec Resistance in the campaign and online mode.
It is known that Aiden Pearce will come with abilities such as Focus for Slowmo aiming, System Crash to turn off electronic devices, and also Gunslinger to give buff damage. Then for Wrench, there are abilities such as Summon Sergei, Ninja Balls, Lady Smash, and MPX SMG/LTL Grenade Launcher.
The Xbox Series S one of the best inventions of 2020 according to Time magazine
Double presence for Microsoft with two of its star products: the Xbox Series S and the Surface Duo in the list of “The best inventions of 2020” compiled by the prestigious Time magazine.
According to the publication, Microsoft’s new console is more than just a next-generation gaming device; it is the foundation stone of what could become the Netflix of video games with what they call their secret weapon: the Xbox Game Pass.
Time also highlights that the price of the console can make it the gateway for many people who are not willing to spend an excessive price to enter the new generation
Xbox Series S and Surface Duo among the best of 2020
The list is made up of 100 inventions launched in this 2020 so particular for everyone and another of the positions is occupied by the Surface Duo also from those of Redmond mainly for its folding design.
Although it is true that the device may not have the same features as other traditional devices, it is constantly looking for innovation or as Time puts it:
“The Surface Duo feels like a concept device, but also a glimpse into the future of notebook computers. It won’t replace your iPhone with its amazing camera, but you can see that it will one day. “
This is how the Master Chief Collection performs in all its Xbox versions
After several months that many of us have seemed endless, the time has finally come to enjoy the new generation of consoles, as Microsoft last week launched the new Xbox Series X and Series S, which have been a success in sales both in reserves and in the batch that we have had these days.
Although many of us would have liked to be able to play Halo Infinite with the launch of these new consoles, we have a good number of games optimized and prepared to take advantage of the new hardware, something to which the Master Chief Collection has been added does nothing.
Master Chief Collection performs great on both Xbox One and Xbox Series
Without a doubt, the new generation is giving incredible moments just beginning, since although the collection has not been patched to take advantage of the hardware, we already saw a few days ago that these consoles work their magic as well, especially with loading times.
But now we have the Master Chief Collection fully ready to work on Xbox Series, something that can be clearly seen in the new video of the ElAnalistaDeBits channel, in which we can see how loading times, resolution, drawing distance, and frames per second improve notably, although this collection also demonstrates great performance on Xbox One, save for Halo 2 Anniversary which has fps issues.
It is also important to mention that this works at 120 fps on Xbox Series X / S, although they are being measured with the limit of 60. What is clear is that the new generation is going at full speed and without drops.
The Master Chief Collection is at its best on both Xbox and PC and we expect the folks at 343 Industries to reveal details on Halo Infinite in a few weeks, which we are really looking forward to.
