The Elder Scrolls Online is adding dynamic resolution scaling on consoles
Zenimax Online is introducing dynamic resolution scaling on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S with the release of The Elder Scrolls Online‘s next major update.
Currently, the game is locked to 1440p on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and 1080p on the Xbox Series S when in performance mode. However, following Update 31, the game will be able to scale its resolution between 4K and 1080p on PS5 and Xbox Series X and between 1080p and 1440p on Xbox Series S.
“For example, we expect our players on Series X to be running at or very close to 4K at 60fps in performance mode in most situations,” the developer added. “On the flip side, the headroom for dropping to as low as 1080p should further prevent dropped frames in high-intensity situations, such as large Cyrodiil battles and certain trial and dungeon boss fights. We’re still experimenting with dynamic resolution scaling, so please let us know how it works for you!”
The developer also revealed that PC owners will be getting a little something with the introduction of multithreaded rendering. Players who are CPU limited should see improvements by activating this new opt-in beta feature.
The Elder Scrolls Online is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
