Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance PC Graphic Options Revealed, Can’t Go Above 1080p Resolution

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a spin-off title that was developed by Platinum Games, known for their work on Bayonetta and Vanquish among others, and published by Konami. After months of speculation and rumours that a PC port will finally come soon, it was revealed that the PC version of the game will hit shelves on January 9, 2014, almost a year after the release of the game on the consoles.

Today, JP Kellams, Creative Producer at Platinum Games, revealed the Graphic settings or options present in the game on twitter

When he was asked if the resolution can go beyond 1080p, he replied that 1080p output is the maximum the game can and will output

Some of the notable changes coming to the PC version are:

  • Addition of cut scenes to Main Menu, which will also be playable.
  • Addition of codecs to Main Menu. All codecs can be played.
  • Addition of Chapter Menu the Boss Stage made especially for Boss battles.
  • Addition of Graphic Options into the Options Menu, It can be used to change resolution, anti-aliasing. Zangeki is an option that will modify the amounts of cuts that can be made for the game.

Will you be picking up Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on the PC? Will it be the ultimate version for you? Does the lack of higher resolutions than 1080p affect your decision? Let us know in the comments below

    I do not like playing games inside a small window or upscaled. I have a 1440P X-star/QNIX, I can not go back to 1080 after using QHD. I wish I had not already bought this game.

    • Rich Garriques

      who the f cares , 1080p is the standard now , i dont see why people even play 1440p , most games on the market are 1080p or lower. its just as stupid as complaining about 4k. besides that , the res doesn’t matter its the game that matters. and if your not going to play a game because you wasted your money on a qhd screen then you shouldn’t be pc gaming nore gaming for that matter. you sound like graphics whore.

      • kerriganmarois

        Its true that its the game that matters, but if you are the type that has a 1440 qhd display that LOTS of pc games support its a huge bummer that you can’t have your menus look tasty at the right res. It looks blurry at that res. Maybe Kuro is a graphics whore, and thats WHY he/she plays on PC and not console. 1080p is not the standard, resolution will never be a standard, 5 years ago 720p was the standard and people like you were telling 1080p people they were idiots. Go away.

      • truth

        that was stupid. most games do in fact support qhd.

  • MatrixEdge

    The game looks awful on a 1440p screen. Hopefully they patch it but it’s ridiculous that this cap even exists in the first place.

  • Appleberry22

    Yep, the res cap is a deal breaker for me. I just traded in my old monitor for a 1440p Qnix and I’m not going to bother buying a port that can’t output to the higher resolution.

    ***ing lame.

  • ShitThatIsStupid

    If I had known this before I put my money down I would have never bought the game.
    I didn’t upgrade to 1440p to game at 1080 ><

  • Trim Dose

    so whats wrong with that again ?

    • Antonio Grande

      If you’ve ever played an upscaled game 720p to 1080p — it’s not very nice to look at. 1080p to 1440 or higher is horrible.

  • Dakan45

    considering what they added, i dont think a higher resolution is needed. Looks like the best japanese game pc version yet.

    • Antonio Grande

      Why is there ANY limit at all?? It’s ridiculous. Why must they limit anyone (myself included) to a particular resolution? It’s so weird.

      • Dakan45

        I think that ironicly they need to code resolution support i have seen some trash games supporting very specific resolutions, like supporting one but not another that is close to the other.

    • Rich Garriques

      if you guys care so much about res dont buy the game cause it seems like you care more about res then enjoying the game. so have a good day and quit your bitching

      • Dakan45

        as it turns out its a very average port, the game is the same as the console, same graphics, but you can have a higher resolution and AA, the framerate is more stable and the camera is badly implemented with the mouse, you gonna need a controller.

        It has all the dlcs thought and its pretty cheap.

        I think totalbiscuit explains it better than me, if pc has superior power that allows developers to reallize their dream. Eg they could have used better textures and lighting that they couldnt use on consoles.

        As it happened with the batman games and many others.

        Or they could allow you to equip stuff with the number buttons instead of going through a inventory menu, again as it happen with batman.

        But yeah the game matters more. But skyrim didnt get superr high sales on pc for being the same game as consoles but for having modding capabilities.

      • kerriganmarois

        Its not about the res, its about enjoying the game looking proper on higher res monitor. Blurry menus actually do effect your experience of the game.
