The Crew 2 Beta Runs At Dynamic Resolution On All Platforms, Hits 1800p On Xbox One X

The Crew 2 received a closed beta recently by Ubisoft. This beta test was a good way to judge the game before its launch later this June. Since this was a closed beta, it was limited to a few codes that were given to users who had registered for the beta, or through online giveaway.

The Crew 2 is an ambitious open world game by Ubisoft. It also supports online multiplayer and features a gigantic open world for the players to race and explore against each other. There are a huge variety of vehicles to control, from boats, to airplanes.

Recently, YouTube Channel VGTech has shared a technical analysis of The Crew 2 closed beta on the PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X. The result can be seen in the video below along with the detailed report of the highs and lows of dynamic resolution.

All four versions use a dynamic resolution with the maximum resolutions found being approximately 1745×981 on PS4, 1600×900 on Xbox One, approximately 2816×1584 on PS4 Pro and 3200×1800 on Xbox One X. No resolutions were found below the maximum values during gameplay with the resolution only found to drop below these values during the cutscene starting at 3:41. The lowest values found during this cutscene were approximately 1280×720 on both the PS4 and Xbox One, approximately 2360×1328 on PS4 Pro and 2560×1440 on the Xbox One X. Though the PS4 and Xbox One resolutions drop to approximately the same minimum value, the PS4 does hold a higher average resolution during this cutscene. The PS4 Pro when outputting at 2160p uses checkerboard rendering to reach its stated resolutions. When outputting at 1080p the PS4 Pro renders at a native resolution of 1920×1080 and has noticeably higher quality smoke effects than when using the 2160p output mode. All four consoles, except the PS4 Pro when outputting at 1080p, can show additional steps along edges above what would be expected for the given resolutions. These additional steps are not formed like others along the edge with their length being noticeably shorter.

The Crew 2 is out on Jue 29th for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
