The modern gamer expects a certain level of visual flair nowadays. The time of 720p are gone, and anything less than 60 FPS at 1080p is scoffed at as middling and poor.
With that in mind, Resident Evil fans will be glad to hear that Resident Evil Village will perform fairly well on most consoles, save perhaps for the oldest consoles of the last generation.
- PlayStation 5 – 4K HDR/60 FPS
- PlayStation 5 (Con Ray Tracing) – 4K HDR/45 FPS
- Xbox Series X – 4K HDR/60 FPS
- Xbox Series X (Con Ray Tracing) – 4K HDR/45 FPS
- Xbox Series S – 1440p HDR/45 FPS
- Xbox Series S (Con Ray Tracing) – 1440p HDR/30 FPS
- PlayStation 4 Pro – 1080p/60 FPS
- PlayStation 4 Pro (High Resolution) – 4K HDR/30 FPS
- PlayStation 4 – 900p/45 FPS
- Xbox One X – 1080p/60 FPS
- Xbox One X (High Resolution) – 4K HDR/30 FPS
- Xbox One – 900p/30 FPS
- Stadia – 1080p / 60 FPS or 4K 60 FPS (4K in dynamic resolution)
We’ve reached the unfortunate stage of forward progress where games will likely be incapable of working well on some of the older consoles. Base Xbox Ones and PS4s will struggle as games become bigger and more gorgeous. In this case, they’ll be stuck on low framerates and resolutions, though not so low that they should ruin the entire experience.
As for anyone else, Resident Evil Village should run smoothly and beautifully. Those on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X will have the option to sacrifice frames for fidelity, a choice that many are likely happy to have. Sometimes the visuals are worth the loss of framerate.
