Ubisoft provides details on improvements to its games on next-gen consoles – Gaming – News

Ubisoft has made an overview explaining the improvements that games will receive on the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and S. It mainly concerns new games that have yet to be released and some games that are being updated.

Lots of information which Ubisoft lists was already known, but it also contains a number of new details. For example, the publisher now indicates whether games support the PlayStation 5‘s Tempest 3D Audio engine. As for the Xbox Series versions, Ubisoft gives details of how the games will run on the Xbox Series X.

Ubisoft does not mention resolutions or frame rates for the Xbox Series S for most. However, this cheaper console is known to run games in 1080p or 1440p resolution. Only with For Honor, Ubisoft reports that the Series S version runs at 1080p instead of 4K.

Ubisoft does not mention frame rate and resolution with Watch Dogs: Legion. That is also the only Ubisoft game that will receive support for ray tracing on the new consoles. Earlier, one developer of the new Watch Dogs game indicates that the game on Series X and PlayStation 5 runs in 4k resolution at 30fps.

Rainbow Six Siege is getting an update and running on the new consoles in 4k at 60fps. Ubisoft said earlier that the game would get a patch with those improvements, but it was not yet clear whether it really would be a combination of 4k with 120fps. The new blog post reports that this is the case.

Ubisoft mentions support for the Tempest 3D Audio engine of the PlayStation 5 for various games. Those games should offer 3D audio via a technique that Sony has developed, which should work in particular with headphones. The new Xbox consoles also have hardware on board for 3D audio. Microsoft calls that spatial audio. Ubisoft only reports support for this for one game.
