SEGA's Alien: Isolation will look similar on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with both versions of the horror game running at 1080p.
Creative Assembly's Gary Napper spoke with Total Xbox about the differences in visuals between the next-gen versions of Alien: Isolation and confirmed that the game is 1080p on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. "... When I think about working on the game, it's almost platform agnostic because I only think about the differences between platforms and the different mechanics we can use, like the light on the PS4 pad and the stuff with Kinect 2.0," Napper said.
However, Napper didn't specify how Alien: Isolation was utilizing these console-specific features, nor did he give exact figures on the frame rate for each version, just noting they're similar. "So I think with frame rate it's pretty comparable," Napper said. "There's no noticeable drop or change in graphics between them. Obviously, there are a lot more options to tweak and scale up on the PC."
Along with the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of Alien: Isolation, the Creative Assembly-developed game is also coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Napper didn't touch on the visuals of those two versions though.
