Being at the gates of a new generation of consoles, any technical detail or clue that can be extracted from the next video games is key to get the idea of what we can expect from PS5 and Xbox Series X in terms of graphics and power. Recently, the Ubisoft Forward left us with the announcement of Far Cry 6, and the most attentive users discovered a small print in a promotional image that clearly said: ” [the resolution] 4K UHD will only be available on Xbox One X and Xbox Series X ” Will PS5 face resolution problems from the start?
The image has not stopped circulating on the internet in recent days, raising all kinds of suspicions about it, but finally, Ubisoft Support has directly responded to the doubts of a user on Twitter to clarify the situation: “The text highlighted in the image of Above only talks about the Xbox systems that will run FC6 in 4K Ultra HD (Xbox One X and Xbox Series X). The Ubisoft support section has no information to add about other systems at this time. “
In other words, the image leaves 4K out of the reach of standard Xbox One and Xbox One S – something that could be taken for granted from the beginning, actually – but it does not convey anything about Sony consoles, good or bad. In fact, there are still several doubts in the air: will the most powerful Xbox bet on native or rescaled 4K? Can any PlayStation reach 4K? If so, native or rescaled? We will have to wait longer to find out.
Surprisingly, despite being in the midst of a pandemic, Far Cry 6 has set a clear release date: February 18, 2021. In this installment, Ubisoft will bet on a fictional Latin American setting: the tropical paradise of Yara, based in Cuba and scourged by the guerrillas, who heads a new villain named Antón Castillo (played by Giancarlo Esposito) and by the son he educates to follow in his footsteps.
