Elden Ring beta test for PS5, XSX | S, PS4 and XOne. Playing the Xbox One provides a “lower-level” of quality

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 “lower-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.

Fortnite back: Anyone can play it on iOS

Fortnite back Anyone can play it on iOS

One of the most popular games for iOS is finally coming back. However, it will not be possible to download classically via the App Store, as we have been used to. After a few months, Nvidia revealed that Fortnite is officially available to all subscribers to its GeForce NOW gaming service. And the one on the iPhone works within Safari.

Of course, you don’t have to worry about having any problems using it. Thanks to skilled developers, Fortnite has fully optimized touch controls, and while playing, you won’t even know you don’t have it installed on your device. Everything takes place via stream, making it logical that the only condition for playing is fast and stable internet.

You haven’t been able to download Fortnite on your iPhone or iPad since Apple removed it from the App Store. This happened in 2020, and the reason was to add one’s payment method to the game. This step was in direct conflict with the App Store rules. So Apple had to act.

It is important to note that Fortnite is not only available on GeForce NOW from Nvidia, but you can also play it through Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming service. It works basically on the same principle through a browser.

F you use the macOS operating system, you can download GeForce NOW here as a standalone application. It has only recently been updated to support the latest ARM Apple Silicon (M-Series) processors. There is also a basic but quite limited free membership.

“Fortnite” Returns to iOS and Android via Xbox Cloud Gaming

Fortnite Returns to iOS and Android via Xbox Cloud Gaming

Xbox Cloud Gaming users can now play “Fortnite” for free via iOS and Android devices thanks to a collaboration between Microsoft Corp. MSFT.O and Epic Games, the company said, Thursday (5/5).

The game has been inaccessible to mobile users since Apple and Google removed it from the app store in 2020. Quoted from Reuters, this Microsoft collaboration allows users, including PC gamers, to stream “Fortnite” in internet browsers on their devices.

The move is likely to help Microsoft attract casual gamers at a time when the software giant is stepping up efforts to make a splash in the video game market and take on rival Sony.

“Fortnite” is the first free game to join the Xbox Cloud Gaming service.

“This is an important step towards adding Free-to-Play titles to the cloud gaming catalog as we continue our cloud journey,” Microsoft said in a blog post.

Since its release in 2020, more than 10 million people worldwide have streamed games via Xbox Cloud Gaming. This service is available in 26 markets, including the United States.

Microsoft, as well as Epic Games and other companies, have criticized Apple’s store practice of requiring developers to pay commissions of up to 30 percent for in-store purchases .

Skate 4: A reputable insider assures that we will be able to test the game this week

Skate 4 A reputable insider assures that we will be able to test the game this week

I have to confess that I have never been on a skateboard. However, one of the games I enjoyed the most as a child was the Tony Hawk saga on PlayStation 2, and I swear I felt like God doing tricks and linking combos.

Skate was an evolution towards a somewhat more “realistic” gameplay (very in quotes). Although it did not manage to hook me as much as the good old Antonio el Halcón, I also dedicated more hours to it than are healthy. The franchise is back with Skate 4, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Tom Henderson breaks the silence and drops that this week we can try Skate 4

  • Skate 4 was announced in June 2020, and the truth is that we have hardly received any updates on its development since then.
  • It could be expected that there have been problems, but the truth is that everything seems to point to the opposite.
  • In February, the CEO of EA said that Skate 4 would come out “much sooner than we expect”, and then one month later, it came to light that the game would be almost ready to be released.
  • Now Tom Henderson, one of the most respected insiders on the current scene, has added fuel to the fire of my hopes by dropping that we will finally be able to test the game this week.

Are you looking forward to the game, or do you think that the fashion of skateboarding games has already been left behind? I think it’s the perfect time to come back, although I don’t want to get my hopes up through the roof until I have it in my hands and finally see it in action.
