The promising Psychonauts 2 has finally received a launch date after the release of the E3 trailer shown by Microsoft during its exciting showcase. The Double Fine developers now provide some small technical details on the promising new platform game.
The software house which is part of the Xbox Game Studios has sent in these hours an email FAQ to the backers who supported the project on Fig, in which some technical characteristics of the production are specified. Unfortunately, the development team has not yet been able to disclose the details regarding framerates and resolutions, but have confirmed that the ‘ High Dynamic Range ( HDR ) will be implemented exclusively in the version for Xbox Series X | S .
The information was reported on the ResetEra forum, where more than one user is expressing their discontent. PlayStation users , in particular, say they are disappointed with this decision , fearful that Double Fine has decided to prioritize Series X | S editions as Microsoft’s in-house studio. However, it must be considered that the feature would also seem to be missing on Windows PCs, and therefore it was simply easier to apply the technology on the next-gen consoles of the Redmond giant. It is possible, however, that HDR will later be added to all versions of the game via post-launch patches.
Recall that Psychonauts 2 will be available on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X | S, PS4 and Xbox One starting from 25 August.
