Saints Row Dev’s Agents of Mayhem Will Support HDR, PS4 Pro Version Will Feature a Dense City
Developer Volition has said that its upcoming title, Agents of Mayhem, will support HDR on PlayStation 4 and PC and that the game’s PS4 Pro enhancements include “a more dense and vibrant Seoul.”
Speaking to Wccftech, the studio also said that it targets 1080p and “at least” 30fps during development but frame rates and resolution can be improved on more powerful consoles. Producer Kate Nelson explained:
Whenever a new platform or upgrades to an existing platform is announced, we take a look at what it will take to support it. Agents of Mayhem will have HDR support for the PlayStation 4 and PC. During development, we target 1080p with at least 30fps and often find we go higher as consoles grow. Higher end PCs by nature have a hardware advantage over consoles in terms of performance.
The more powerful platforms will see an increase in population, civilian and vehicular, making a more dense and vibrant Seoul to create mayhem in. Xbox One X is not released when the game comes out, so specs for the game on that platform are still TBD. The updates for Pro and Xbox One X are mostly about city density and utilizing the stronger GPUs to render more population, both pedestrian and vehicular.
Elsewhere, we’re told that the game will offer a significant amount of play time thanks in part to its open world nature and leveling system.
Agents of Mayhem releases on August 15. You can check out its latest trailer above.
