I hope the writer just mispoke and you really get native 4K on PC instead of resolution scaling. That would be terrible and a damn shame if it was upscaled.

Took this from another site:
Here are the resolutions for the various platforms the game is releasing on:
  • Xbox One (1080p, 60 fps)
  • PlayStation 4 (1080p, 60 fps)
  • Xbox One X (Upscaled 4K, 60 fps)
  • PlayStation 4 Pro (Upscaled 4K, 60 fps)
  • PC (Native 4K, all textures 2K unconverted, 60 fps)
  • Nintendo Switch (TV mode: 1080p, 30 fps; Handheld mode: 720p 30 fps)
Now all I need is the Xbox One Elite Controller v2.

The lack of detailed info on why a PC user should spend $40 on this makes me wary. Are there any comparison screenshots floating around?

Seems like they want a steep price for something that can be achieved well enough with mods.

They better make tesselated displacement shader for ground and walls surfaces because that was some low poly geometry for today's standards. But somehow I doubt they'll bother.

This sounds nice. I've had this title on the backlog for way too long. I'll buy this and begin the series.
