Updated September 30, 2018 12:08:53When it comes with the new release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it’s not all about the 4K display.
The game is looking at using the full 1080p resolution to create a game experience that’s much more realistic, even at high-resolution settings.
This is particularly important to those playing at a 4K monitor, as it makes the game look more like it could be rendered at a higher resolution than it actually is.
That’s a major benefit for gamers who prefer 4K to 1080p.
The Witcher game’s developers are looking at 4K for the best of both worlds, and that means they’re not just trying to make the game more realistic but also make it look better than the 1080p version.
“We want to take advantage of the new resolution, to have the image look better at higher resolution,” says CD Projekt Red’s CTO Marcin Momot, who also leads the company’s marketing team.
“If you look at the image on screen, the image is still very small.
We’re not trying to do a high resolution game.”
While some games have opted to go with 4K on purpose, it seems a lot of developers are doing it in a very different way.
Some games use a traditional “scaled” resolution to make their game look a bit bigger, but the scaling is only as high as the monitor’s maximum pixel density.
With a 4k monitor, you can theoretically have the same picture look great at high resolution.
With the new game, CD Projeksma’s Momot says the developers are “using a scaling that’s far, far higher.”
For example, in the game’s cinematic cutscenes, the game will look like it’s running at a much higher resolution.
“You can have a very good looking picture, but you don’t get as much detail or detail on the edges because the resolution is not high enough,” Momot told The Verge.
“So you’re using a scaling of the resolution, which is far, much higher, so the image looks much better, much better than it would be with a 1080p screen.”
The Witcher 4, the newest release of the Witcher series, is using a 4:3 aspect ratio and uses a “resilient pixel” technology to help improve image quality and image quality performance.
This means that the game doesn’t need to use “resurrect” methods to look better.
Momot said that CD Projo is using “resolvable pixels” for the game, which means that each pixel can be resized up or down based on the screen’s brightness.
“When you look closely, you’ll see that the resolution of the game is much higher,” Momodts words suggest.
“The resolution is very high, and you can have the whole picture, the whole image, that is very, very high resolution, but that resolution has no aliasing, no scaling artifacts.
That resolution is a very, big image.”
Momot explains that this “resolve” resolution allows for the developers to do more with each pixel.
For example: “Theres a resolution where the resolution stays exactly the same, which we call a ‘resilible pixel,'” he says.
“It’s a resolution of, you know, the resolution that you’d use in your home theater, but we think it’s actually more useful to have a resolution that looks great on your monitor, so we’ll use that resolution.”
Theres also a resolution which is much lower than the resolution on a 4,000×1,800 monitor, which Momot calls “low resolution.”
CD Projaksma says that low resolution is an issue for some gamers who want to play a 4D game on a high-end monitor.
Momodets reasoning for using low resolution for the new title is that the 4:5 aspect ratio means that some games are better for 4K, but not for other games.
Theres only one resolution that will be playable in a game, and it looks good at 4:4, which has a resolution ratio of 0.3x (4:3).
But that resolution is only 4,100 pixels wide, and so 4k doesn’t make sense for most gamers.
CD Projsms reasoning for this, according to Momot: “4k, 4k, that’s really not an option for most people.”
CDProjekts statement on the resolution issue is interesting in its own right.
Momota said that the company has been experimenting with resolution for years.
“We have a whole series of games and titles that we have developed and are developing now, and theres always been this resolution limitation,” he said.
“There’s no way to go from 1,800 pixels to 4k.
Thats really what is so hard for us, because we want to make it great, but for some games, we can’t
