Is Mass Effect Andromeda coming to Xbox Scorpio?
Mass Effect Andromeda hit the market this month and caused divided opinions of both the community and industry professionals. As stated by many reviewers, the game’s battle mechanics and open world features are improvements when compared to Andromeda’s predecessors.
However, the shallow dialogs and the underwhelming story with repetitive quests made quite a negative impact. Did we forget to mention subpar character animations?
Well, the game is primarily developed for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. However, when asked about possibility to optimize the game for Microsoft’s new asset, Project Scorpio, BioWare offered divided standpoints.
Firstly, the game producer, Michel Gamble, said that they are working on PlayStation 4 Pro optimization, but also stated that there are not plans to do the same for its upcoming Xbox 4K counterpart. Though, he hasn’t excluded the possibility for optimized Game Of The Year Edition.
But, a few weeks later, the leader of the creative team behind the game, Mac Wolters, stirred things up by saying, and we quote, ”it’s a possibility”. Since it’s hard to expect the Game Of The Year edition with the community’s initial reactions, we can only hope that the standard release will eventually find its way to Scorpio. Let’s wait and see.
For those who haven’t heard about Project Scorpio, well, it’s an upcoming Xbox One (another after Xbox One S) variation that will enable gameplay in 4K resolution and support Virtual Reality hardware. If it suits you, you can call it the “Xbox Two” since it seems that it may be a standalone version.
Supposedly, it should give Sony a run for their money, with amazing capabilities and powerful hardware. The exact release date hasn’t been detailed yet, but we can expect it to hit the market somewhere in November or December this year.
