No word yet on whether the game will have a Performance Mode on next-gen consoles.
Watch Dogs: Legion is out in less than a week, but life several other major multiplatform games released in the coming weeks and months, it’s going to release as a cross-gen title. A couple of weeks after its launch in late October, Ubisoft’s open world game will also be releasing for Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
Ubisoft have previously talked about some of the improvements the game will feature on next-gen consoles, such as ray-tracing and faster load times, but now, we know exactly what resolution and frame rate it will be targeting on the newer hardware as well. In a recent AMA on Reddit, Lathieeshe Thillainathan – live producer on Watch Dogs: Legion – confirmed that the game will run on the PS5 and Xbox Series X at 4K and 30 FPS with ray-tracing enabled.
Many would have been hoping that the game would also support a performance mode for faster frame rates, as several games will when they release this Holiday, but Thillainathan did not go into whether that’s going to be the case. Resolution and performance for the game’s Xbox Series S version are also yet to be revealed.
Watch Dogs: Legion is out on October 29 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia, on November 10 for Xbox Series X/S, and on November 12 for PS5. You can check out the game’s PC requirements through here.
Details on microstransactions in Watch Dogs: Legion were recently revealed. It’s also been confirmed that the game will be playable offline, while cross-play support will be coming in a post-launch update.
