Requiem only 1440p/30fps on next gen consoles, XSX has a slight advantage over PS5
There were hints A Plaque Tale: Requiem we wanted to ask a lot of our hardware, with The game’s 1080p PC requirements are surprisingly high, but it may be an even bigger beast than expected. According to the breakdown of the always reliable ElAnalistaDeBits, and Plague Tale: Requiem will only run at 1440p and 30fps on Xbox Series X and PS5 (or 40fps in 120hz mode). You may have trouble running the game in 4K on your RTX 30 series card, even with DLSS enabled. You can see the full review below.
A Plague Tale: Requiem appears to offer roughly the same feature set on Xbox Series X/S and PS5, with both machines running the game at 1440p and 30fps with similar visual settings. That said, the XSX has a slight edge in performance, holding a pretty solid 30 fps, while the PS5 can experience slight drops (no more than 5 frames) during demanding scenes with lots of rats or foliage. As for the Xbox Series S, it’s limited to 1080p and 30fps and suffers from PS5-like crashes.
Even on PC, the game will present a challenge. GeForce RTX 3080 still in DLSS performance mode only it reaches 60fps at 4K. Obviously, things will be less ideal on the less powerful 30 RTX series GPUs. But hey, if you have one of those fancy new GeForce RTX 4090 cards, you can knock an average of around 160 fps out of a game with DLSS 3.
It will be interesting to see if this foreshadows things to come and 4K and/or 60fps becomes something XSX and PS5 owners can no longer count on as true next-gen games start to emerge. Or maybe A Plague Tale: Requiem just isn’t well optimized (Microsoft Flight Simulator Asobo Studio is also a bit of a system hog). Maybe those rumors of mid-gen upgrade for PS5/XSX they come sooner than we think.
And Plague Tale: Requiem is out on PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and Switch (via the cloud) tomorrow (October 18).
