We've seen enough Xbox Series S negativity to last a lifetime in recent months with the whole Baldur's Gate 3 drama, but how about some positivity this week? Well, Assassin's Creed Mirage has just dropped, and Digital Foundry's initial look at the game has provided some lovely-looking results on Xbox Series X and S.
Both of Microsoft's current-gen consoles are impressive here - and both contain a 60FPS performance mode! Here are the figures for getting the game running at 60FPS on Xbox Series X and S:
"Generally, as you would expect, the 60fps mode trades resolution for frames. That means a drop to 1800p dynamic on PS5 and Series X, with 1440p as the lower bounds. As for Series S, it's a dynamic 1080p in this case, with 864p as the lower bounds,"
DF does remark that the Series S requires a "much more noticeable drop in image quality" to get to 60, but that it's "a fair trade to get the game running at 60FPS". However, a 30FPS option is always there for those who prefer a more pristine image.
"While targeting 30fps, the biggest dividing point is resolution. You get a dynamic 4K on PS5 and Series X, going down at occasional points to 1944p. On Series S we get a still-impressive dynamic 1620p, with a 1512p lower bounds."
Looking at the video up above, we think Mirage appears pretty impressive in all of its Xbox console modes, so whether 60FPS or a higher resolution floats your boat, AC Mirage is shaping up well! If you want to read up on our thoughts on the game itself, check out our full review down below.
