During the Microsoft Xbox Games Showcase, Remedy Entertainment has partnered with Smilegate to unveil a spectacular new engine-powered trailer that showcases the plot cuts and gameplay of the CrossfireX single-player campaign. According to Eurogamer Digital Factory, this trailer was launched on PC, not Xbox Series X.
Along with video footage of Halo Infinite’s single-player campaign, the CrossfireX trailer was one of the best and most impressive gameplay demos ever seen on stream. That being said, as with Halo: Infinite, this trailer did not work on Microsoft’s new console. Instead, the CrossfireX footage was created on a PC (interestingly, the PC version is not announced and may not appear at all).
That said, Richard Leadbetter of Eurogamer wrote: “The game will be able to offer on Xbox One X 60 frames per second – I talked about this with the Remedy team last night. Trailer rendered on PC, so this isn’t Xbox Series X… But, you know, if they hit 60fps even on Xbox One XI would love to see how the game performs on Xbox Series X“.
Oddly enough, the second most impressive engine-powered trailer from Microsoft’s broadcast has also been played on PC. Moreover, it is known that the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was a concept trailer that doesn’t reflect the quality of the final game. Thus, the PC version may come close to this level of graphics, but whether the Xbox Series X will be able to show the same picture is not clear.
Finally, it’s worth noting that the only platform that can run the Medium horror movie at 60fps will also be PC. Undead Labs announced that Medium will run at 4K / 30p on Xbox Series X for “cinematic” purposes. Hopefully on PC, the team doesn’t lock frame rates. However, since this project will be built on the Unreal Engine 4, PC players will be able to unlock the frequency via config files.
CrossfireX is the Xbox version of the multiplayer PC shooter that will also feature a storyline campaign focusing on the global conflict between the world’s two most formidable private military groups – Global Risk and The Blacklist. The single player game aims to introduce players to the world of Crossfire through a series of engaging stories told on behalf of representatives of both sides of the conflict.
