Ubisoft has announced that the upcoming title supports Watch Dogs: Legion on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X raytracing in combination with 30fps and 4k resolution. A 60fps mode seems to be missing in its entirety
That can be seen from a session on Reddit, in which Thillainathan answered questions from the interested. He is live producer at Ubisoft and was asked if raytracing, 120fps and 4k will be supported by Watch Dogs: Legion for the next-genconsoles. Thillainathan replied that the game features raytracing, 4k and 30fps on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
He did not indicate whether a 60fps mode is entirely missing, but since he did not say anything about frame rates other than the 30fps mentioned, there is a good chance that a 4k60 mode will be missing and 60fps will probably not be at issue either at any lower, dynamic scale resolution or if raytracing is switched off. Ubisoft’s other big game, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, supports 60fps at 4k resolution on both Series X and PS5.
Watch Dogs: Legion will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 29. Once the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 come out, special versions of the game will also be released for these next-gen consoles. Microsoft previously announced that Watch Dogs: Legion is on a list of games optimized for Xbox Series X and S, although it is not clear what improvements or new features are involved. Perhaps this game is about supporting raytracing, which will not be present with the consoles of the current generation.
