It'll be interesting to see if those visual updates make it to the native 4k mode. Or whether they're exclusive to the enriched visual mode like they were on the pro.

"in partnership with Nixxes Software"

it's the Nixxes version. likely it'll use similar presets. 4k mode however is native. me thinks 4k mode may come with a texture enhancement. given the fact that turn10 said the Scorpio has enough power to render XB1 games in 4k native with a couple enhancements.

Jaysus relax. Its almost as if you forgot this is a 360 game too or something.
Like most games made for Xb1 first, or in this case even 360 hardware first, it should be easy to get it to native 4K.

It's XB1 lead - ""We're wholly focused on Rise being an Xbox One title without limitation, without even thinking of the Xbox 360 version,"

The Xbox 360 version uses custom assets, some of which taken from xb1. Next gen lara was also made from scratch -

I don't know what settings were used for the comparison. the video description says Xb1 4k trailer vs PS4 pro enriched, VS pc 4k.

Oh......... that's awkward because it never really shows in ANY version.

@KORNdog I know, its so adorable. I still wish we had a Crash Bandicoot style remake of the REAL Tomb Raider 2 though or if reboot Lara had even a tiny pinky finger of classic Lara's bad assitude. :(

Yeah, I wonder how many new games this year and in near future meant for current gen console will be native 4K. Racing, Fighting games I can see and obviously indie titles but I am not sure about the rest

About the game


What's up?

    KORNdog @docLEXfisti: i had a feeling the second would be better, just because it didn,t have to deal with the fluff of building up to getting a ship and exploring strange new worlds. (5 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker And it was quite a sight to eventually be above the clouds or see nothing but clouds or sky and no land below you, lovely. (12 Hours ago)
