Elite: Dangerous Will Not Run on Today’s PCs With All the Features Turned On
David Braben, the head of Frontier Developments in an interview with Eurogamer has stated that the upcoming space title Elite: Dangerous will feature graphics that will be difficult to handle even for the PCs of today.
We’re going through some wonderful effects internally that look truly beautiful, and we’re saying, that slows the frame-rate a bit, doesn’t it?” Braben said in an interview with Eurogamer. “And we say yes, but we don’t mind, because it looks so beautiful.
But what we’re going to do is attach it to this part of the detail slider. Or we’ll call it out as a tick box…Even if your PC of today can’t run with all the features on, your PC of tomorrow might.
However, there will be options to scale down the graphics a bit, so that it would work on PCs that are available right at this moment.
This is a huge claim from the developers and it will be very interesting to see how they are going to back it up, when players finally get their hands on the game later this year.
The premise of Elite: Dangerous is very much like the previous entry, as you start the game with a spaceship and are given very little amount of money as you make your way into the galaxy.
If you have a PC capable enough to run the game and you are looking forward to try Elite: Dangerous out, then pre-order the game right now and you will be granted an entry to the game’s beta which is scheduled to start on 29th of July.
Elite: Dangerous’ full release is scheduled to happen sometime in 2014, but developers will finalize the release date after getting the feedback of the beta.
