Alien: Isolation E3 2014 Accolades Trailer Takes Names, “No Noticeable Change in Graphics” Between PS4 & Xbox One

If you’ve read our glowing Alien: Isolation E3 preview, then you already know the game is shaping up to be something special. Well, just in case you didn’t, SEGA has released a new trailer highlighting all the awards the game has gotten at this year’s E3.

In other Isolation news, Creative Assembly’s Gary Napper assures fans that the game will look the same between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, which should be refreshing to Xbox One owners since most games look a bit better on the PS4. Napper confirms that both games will run at 1080p resolution on both consoles.

That’s actually not something I get that into, because we build it on one central engine and then kick it out to different versions,…So when I think about working on the game it’s almost platform agnostic because I only think about the differences between platforms and the different mechanics we can use like the light on the PS4 pad and the stuff with Kinect 2.0.

Regarding the frame-rate, Napper adds that there’s no “noticeable difference” between the two versions, though it will understandably look better on PC.

So I think with frame rate it’s pretty comparable. There’s no noticeable drop or change in graphics between them. Obviously there are a lot more options to tweak and scale up on the PC.

Alien: Isolation will hit the PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One and PC this October 7.

Are you surprised with this revelation or should developers work to ensure there’s parity between both now-gen versions?
