A couple days ago that we got from THQ Nordic what is the news connected with an ELEX patch that, amongst under fixes and enhancements, would add “4K rendering” on PlayStation 4 Pro and “increased resolution” on Xbox One X. At first glance, this seemed like PlayStation 4 Pro would obtain a higher resolution boost than Xbox One X in ELEX, which may have been very strange considering that Microsoft’s console is much more powerful than Sony’s.

We asked a clarification to the developers and Philipp Krause, Lead Programmer at Piranha Bytes, sent us this statement:

On both consoles we’re rendering ELEX in 1800p, this is a resolution of 32001800 pixels C similar to in games like Final Fantasy XIV, Infamous: Second Son, Watch Dogs 2 or Mass Effect: Andromeda.
On PS4 Pro we are able to only reach that resolution by hiring the checkerboard technique. The fidelity is increased utilizing temporal anti-aliasing and FXAA. The PS4 Pro then scales the idea to the 4K resolution of this TV.

On Xbox One X we certainly have precisely the same resolution, nevertheless it’s the native resolution C no tricks applied. It’s pure and full 1800p. There’s only FXAA useful to smooth the perimeters a little. This is often only possible while using the better hardware the Xbox One X offers.

As it turns out, then, Xbox One X actually has got the technical edge simply because it should. The patch is just not yet reside on either console, mind you, nonetheless it will arrive soon based on publisher THQ Nordic. Hopefully that means ahead of the New Year lands.

ELEX, the modern sci-fantasy roleplaying game by Piranha Bytes, launched in October. It could possibly certainly bought at a deep discount (33.49, 33% off its standard 49.99 price) via Fanatical for PC; you can our original writeup on the action to view that which we thought of it.
