Following the launch of Xbox One X and Ps4 Pro, many developers have ported their games to the consoles and this time Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the game which is going to take full advantage of the Xbox One X’s and PS4 Pro’s powerful hardware.
Fatshark has confirmed that Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will support a native 4K resolution on Xbox One X and 1440p PS4 Pro.
The reason why PS4 Pro will feature 1440p instead of 4K might be because of the console’s less powerful hardware compared to Xbox One X.
Aside from resolution boost, the game will also take advantage of the “powerful CPU” inside both consoles that will help with higher and steadier framerate.
This is is something that we are still working on and can therefore change but we will definitely get 4K support on the Xbox One X and 1440p native resolution on the PS4 Pro. Other than that there are the inherited improvements that we get from the more powerful CPU which will give us a higher and steadier framerate. We are also looking into the possibility to prioritize enhanced title players as hosts since their hardware will handle being a server much better.
Furthermore, the developer told Gamingbolt that regardless of the TV or monitor the will output 4K on Xbox one X and 1440p on PS4 Pro no matter the resolution of the display.
Meaning if you have a monitor with 1080p resolution and are playing the game on Xbox One X, then the game will still output native 4K and will downsample to your monitor’s native resolution.
If you are on a non-4K TV set, it will downsample to whatever it supports. You will most likely still get a better visual experience than the non-enhanced versions. It is also worth mentioning that the game is not GPU bound- so we don’t get an increase in framerate when lowering the rendering output and therefore it makes little sense for us to not use maximum render output on the enhanced versions.
