Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II: Not Even 30 FPS on Xbox!? [VIDEO]

We’ve known for months that Ninja Theory’s game won’t run at 60 FPS on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, but at half the frame rate… or less!


Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II has high system requirements on PC, but the visuals in the game are quite strong. On the two Xbox consoles, however, the situation is a bit different, with only one graphics mode for both. This gives us a maximum of 30 FPS, but in the analysis made by ElAnalistaDeBits we don’t see that much. In other words, the game can’t keep up with what should be an obligatory minimum these days.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II has a dynamic resolution of 2560×1070 on Xbox Series X, with an average of 2304×963. On the Xbox Series S, the dynamic resolution is 1920×803, with an average of 1472×615. They look a little unusual, but that’s because it uses a cinematic aspect ratio of 2.39:1, or black bars at the top and bottom of the screen (The Order: 1886 used a similar solution on PlayStation 4).

On the larger Xbox, the visual quality is similar to the higher settings on the PC, while on the smaller console, the visuals are understandably slightly worse. But neither Xbox can keep up with 30 frames per second! At 80%, both Xbox Series reach this, but when you get into more beautiful or more action-packed scenes, the Xbox Series X drops to 25-26 FPS and the Xbox Series S drops to 20-21 FPS. The latter in particular can be very noticeable, even for someone not used to gaming. The two consoles seem to run into problems at different points… perhaps the dynamic resolution is to blame for the deteriorating performance.

Hopefully, Ninja Theory will be able to tweak the game a bit, as this would be the last Xbox exclusive (although it is rumored to be coming to PlayStation 5 in the future), and Microsoft can learn from this, as the public should expect more.
