Performance of Red Dead Redemption 2 graphics got tested on all consoles by Digital Foundry. The comparison was only done to see which console gets the best out of the game. It looks like Xbox One X has managed to overshadow PS4 Pro at running Red Dead Redemption 2.
The result of this comparison might come as a surprise to many as PS4 was a key part of the game’s promotion. But the outcome is quite the opposite actually. Xbox One X has managed to become the clear leader in the race for giving the best Red Dead Redemption 2 experience.
Although expectations were high from PS4 Pro it couldn’t be a stand-out console for Red Dead Redemption 2. Meanwhile, Xbox One X provides you with the utmost suave gaming experience. One key difference found in the original game was the varying landscapes on each console.
But, no such issue came up while comparing Red Dead Redemption 2 performance of all consoles. In-game surroundings are pretty much the same whether it is PS4 Pro or Xbox One X.
Yet, every version of the game doesn’t look the same. The disparity lies in the presentation of graphics. The depth of field and shadow quality makes all the difference. Xbox One X has the best display quality.
Whereas, PS4 Pro is only behind due to dropping frame rates while playing Red Dead Redemption 2. Despite not being in the top-performing consoles PS4 manages to give stable frame rates. The extensive analysis conducted by Digital Foundry also highlights certain other elements.
Apart from graphics Red Dead Redemption 2 storyline is also diverse. Arthur’s gang alone has 22 different stories in the game. Meanwhile, Rockstar planned ahead for a day one update to fix unforeseen bugs too. So, graphics and performance aren’t the only things to consider for getting the game.
