Earlier, From Software was forced to heavily compromise the graphics of the final product that was Dark Souls II. It was done in order to make sure that runs properly on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Gamers weren’t provided a prior warning to this and, as a result, their anticipations came crashing down.
Right now, gamers are hopeful that Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin will make all sorts of amends in order correct these issues. Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry tested the PS4 port of this game meticulously and arrived at a pleasing judgment. According to them, Scholar of the First Sin is “the best looking incarnation of the game to date.”
Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin runs perfectly on the PlayStation 4 at full-HD resolution of 1920×1080 while holding at 60fps for a majority of the time. This is quite an impressive feat since the original version only managed a poor 20fps.
Dark Souls 2’s art design was highly compromised on the last generation consoles with low-resolution textures and sub-native alpha. Presently, the upgraded version of this game attacks the present generation consoles with full force. The normal map quality has been greatly improved while new assets are drawn from mountain-sides in the region around Forest of Fallen Giants.
Stay tuned for more updates on Dark Souls II!
