With the upcoming release of Warhammer: Vermintide 2, developer Fatshark has revealed that the game will utilize the enhancements of both the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, with both consoles adding significant boosts in performance to the game.
During a recent interview with GamingBolt, producer Robert Bäckström revealed that the enhancements for both consoles were still being worked on, he was able to announce that the game will get full 4K support on the Xbox One X, while the PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game will be rendered in 1440p. “This is is something that we are still working on and can therefore change,” Bäckström said, “but we will definitely get 4K support on the Xbox One X and 1440p native resolution on the PS4 Pro.“
According to Bäckström, the extra power in the Xbox One X is what was able to get it to run at full 4K, while the PlayStation Pro was “unable to attain” that same benchmark. Of course, both games will run and look excellently on either console, and with more fine-tuning to be done ,this certainly won’t be the last we’ve heard of how the game will perform on the upgraded consoles.
