State of Decay 2 on PC in 1080p

State of Decay 2 on PC in 1080p

The PC version of State of Decay 2 is smoother than the Xbox One X version, as long as you don't try to play the game in 4K (even our GTX 1080 Ti cannot hold a steady framerate with ultra settings). The problem is that the game's resolution cannot be modified when playing in full screen, which means we have to change our desktop resolution every time we want to play the game on our 4K TV. We've seen a few drops in 1440p but our experience was smooth overall in 1080p. Image quality takes a bit of a hit in this resolution though, especially if you're playing on a 4K TV. Let's hope the developers will realize this isn't really acceptable, as other Windows Store game do propose the option to change the resolution (Sea of Thieves being one of them for example).

It's a shame to see Xbox exclusives do badly optimized when a game like God of War has just been released on PS4. The One X is a jewel hardware-wise but software... oh man...

There's a heavy post-fx film-grain effect ?

What OSD are you using to display framerate in the top right corner?

Also, the video seems to stutter occasionally as if framerate was dropping, but it still shows 60 on the OSD.

Mirillis Action! is the software we use to display the framerate but another PC was used to make the recording while playing.
