Biomutant backward compatible at 4K and 60 FPS on Xbox Series X, and 4K rescaled and 60 FPS on PS5.
A new gameplay shows the game, which will later have a native version of the next-gen. Both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X run the game through backward compatibility, although the XSX comes out ahead with a native resolution of 4K and 60 FPS versus the PS5’s 1080p upscaled to 4K and 60 FPS.
After a long period of silence, THQ Nordic and Experiment 101 are taking out all the heavy artillery: Biomutant is about to reach stores, and its managers want you to be safe with what you are buying. That is why in the last few weeks we have seen gameplays of the game on all platforms. Or almost. Now, you can see how the game looks on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
According to those responsible, neither of these versions is native to the new generation hardware, which means that the game runs in backward compatibility mode in either of the two.
“In this release, the native 4K option on PlayStation has been disabled for stability and performance reasons, ” says a note from the developer. “It will remain disabled in the commercial version, too.” With the promise that we will have more information on this soon – probably via a technical sheet – for now this is all we have.
If you are interested in seeing how the game is going on native hardware, you are well served: we have compiled the Biomutant gameplays for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in a single link for your convenience.
