New Mass Effect: Andromeda Comparison Video Shows Off 4K Visual Comparison Between Consoles and PC
We are less than one week away from the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda, BioWare’s newest game in the series that began with Mass Effect way back in 2007. Now, thanks to IGN, we have a comparison video that shows us how well each platform’s graphics handles the upcoming action-RPG. The video features side-by-side comparisons between the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One S, and PC – all running 4K with 60fps (frames per second). Check out the Mass Effect: Andromeda comparison video below to see how your console of choice for the game holds up against the others.
If you were expecting the PC’s visuals to look the best, then you would not be mistaken. The frame rate appears to be a bit smoother, and both the reflection details and the overall visual fidelity of the game on PC appears to be on a much higher level compared to both the Xbox One S and the PS4 Pro. Not only that, the ambient effects, such as fog and lighting, appear to be much more defined and realistic. This is not meant to take away from how beautiful the game looks on Sony and Microsoft’s consoles, however. Mass Effect: Andromeda looks gorgeous regardless of the platform you are playing it on. While PC is far and away the best platform (visually speaking) to play Mass Effect: Andromeda on, the two remaining consoles are rather similar in terms of graphics, with the PS4 Pro having an advantage over the Xbox One S due to its beefier specs.
As previously mentioned, we are less than a week away from the arrival of Mass Effect: Andromeda, though those of you subscribed to EA/Origin Access will be able to get their hands on the game for a 10-hour trial starting tomorrow, March 16. The game is also available to be preloaded, depending on which region of the United States you are in. Mass Effect: Andromeda launches on March 21 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
So, what did you think about the Mass Effect: Andromeda comparison video? Are you satisfied with how well (or not) your platform holds up compared to the other two?
