Elden Ring beta test for PS5, XSX S, PS4 and XOne

From Software invited players to try the Elden Ring and the first feedback on the game was very positive. However, we cannot count on the same experience on all platforms, so it’s worth paying attention to the Digital Foundry material.

Technical tests of Elden Ring allowed players to try out the latest products from From Software, and Digital Foundry looked at all console versions of the game. We can suspect that the title will have some more improvements by the time of its premiere, but the first conclusions are interesting.

The Elden Ring on PlayStation 4 runs at 1080p, while PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox Series X excel at 1800p. The worst situation is in the case of the Xbox One, which offers a resolution of 900p, but the leaf density, texture filtering, depth of field effect, shadow quality and ambient occlusion also seem to be reduced, which, according to specialists, makes the title offer ‚Äúlower-level”. In some situations, the enemies’ animation drops to 15fps, which is supposed to look very strange.

In the case of PS4 Pro and XSX, the platforms use the solution known from Sekiro – the developers have removed the liquidity limit, so the games run at 30-40 frames per second. In some situations, PlayStation 4 Pro is to offer an advantage over the Xbox One X, but DF emphasizes that there is no consistency in this case.

The Elden Ring works much better on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S – in this case, we can count on 2-3 times faster loading at the start. In this case, players can check two game modes, but neither of them reaches 60 frames per second.

“The frame rate mode is not able to hit 60fps on any system: it’s 45-60fps on PS5, usually a little lower on XSX and even lower on XSS. Based at least on network code, Sony’s platform mainly offers a higher level of performance (though the XSX has its moments too), a little extra resolution and faster load times. “

In the case of resolution, different results have been measured, however, it is worth noting that players will enjoy the gameplay in 4K – although in this situation they will play at around 30-40 fps:

“In framerate mode, the PS5 and XSX consoles aim for the dynamic 1512p-2160p (but more often up to 1800p), while XSS drops that value down to the DRS 1008p-1440p window. Meanwhile, the quality modes on the more powerful XSX and PS5 stick rigidly to native 4K, while XSS locks up at 1440p. There is little separation between the two modes – although the quality mode seems to enhance the quality of the shadows even further. I also noticed something that is probably a bug: motion blur is disabled in frame rate mode in the XSX | S but remains active in the PS5 equivalent. “

The Digital Foundry discovered that users can get an Elden Ring at 60 frames per second. You only need to play the game in the version from PlayStation 4 Pro to PlayStation 5. In such a situation, the setting is inferior to the native edition from PS5 but offers the “most stable” 60 fps.

Metro Last Light turns ten: free on Steam for a few days

Metro Last Light turns ten free on Steam for a few days

Metro Last Light is free on Steam for a limited time: you can redeem it until Thursday 25 May. The developers of 4A Games have decided to proceed with the initiative to celebrate the tenth birthday of the title, the second of the Metro franchise (which, at least so far, is a trilogy).

Unfortunately, we are talking about the Redux reissue released a couple of years later, which is based on a more recent version of the graphics engine, but if nothing else it is the Complete Edition which contains all the DLCs. You can find it by following this link. Naturally, the game is free “forever”: once redeemed, it will be part of your library like any other title.

The franchise grew out of Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky’s short story Metro 2033, released in 2005. It is the dystopian story of a post-apocalyptic Russia trying to recover from the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust 20 years earlier. Initially, the story was published on their website completely free of charge, and over time it has evolved into a multifaceted and globally recognized franchise.

Ironically, the games, all attributable to the survival horror FPS genre, are developed by a Ukrainian studio (or rather, founded in Ukraine but based in Malta for almost ten years). Glukhovsky and other authors continued to expand the Metro universe with more or less short stories; Glukhovsky, who is also a journalist, recently sided with Ukraine in the conflict triggered by his motherland, so much so that the Kremlin issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of defamation of the Russian army, due to a post on Instagram, and faces up to 15 years in prison if caught.

Like Last Light, Metro 2033 also received the Redux treatment with a decidedly more modern graphics engine, still acceptable even today. Exodus, the latest chapter in the saga (so far, at least), is very recent (dates back to 2020).

For the anniversary, all the other titles in the franchise are also on offer, even if not free: in fact, ‚ā¨12.49 is enough to take home the complete saga , which includes the Redux versions of 2033 and Last Light, Exodus and the expansion packs for Exodus. You can find it by following this link .

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League postponed to February 2024 | Official

Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League postponed to February 2024

Rocksteady confirmed the rumors reported by Bloomberg a few weeks ago: his new game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, is delayed, and will be released in spring 2023. To announce it on Twitter was the creative director of the studio, Sefton Hill; sadly the news is what it is, but if nothing else the exclusive animation that accompanies the message is a pretty nice homage to waiting fans. As you can read from the message, Hill doesn’t go too far into the technical reasons that led to the decision: he simply needs more time to complete the game in the best possible way.

If this timeline is met, it will have been almost eight years since the release of Rocksteady’s previous game. It was in fact at the end of June (more precisely on the 23rd, or the third day of summer) when Batman: Arkham Knight was released, the final chapter of the original Arkham trilogy started by the same studio in 2009. Kill the Justice League will be the formal continuation of the saga main: in short, it will take place a few months after the events narrated in Arkham Knight.

However, let’s not expect another open-world single-player like the previous chapters of the saga: the new title should be more devoted to cooperative multiplayer , and will allow you to control four characters, namely Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang. The game was announced in 2020 during the DC FanDome.

According to rumors, the development of a game starring the Suicide Squad, the group of super villains/anti-heroes DC Comics, had begun immediately after the release of Arkham Knight, but the project was being followed by WB Games Montreal. Sometime later it was discovered that the project had been canceled – or rather, had radically changed direction: it then became what we know today as Gotham Knights, whose launch is scheduled for this fall .

Well, it seemed that we were almost there, and instead comes the announcement of a new postponement, which is quite significant. Like the first time, the official post shared on Twitter speaks of a “painful but necessary” decision to guarantee the highest possible quality standard. The appointment is set (at least for now‚Ķ) on February 2, 2024.
