As stated in the official Xbox portal, Call of the Sea will work in 4K resolution and 60 guaranteed FPS. In turn, you will have improvements in its power and performance on Xbox Series X with the Smart Delivery function: wherever you buy it, you will always have access to the best version on Xbox.
Call of the sea
“Our main objective is to offer the best possible gaming experience. Although we have a stylized style, we wanted to add a next generation look, full of visual effects and movement on the scene. With the DirectX ray tracing, we will have the opportunity to make the island even more real, to come to life, “says Fernández.
The island, thanks to this realism, will be like one more character: “These improvements will also allow us to adjust the environments, the weather and make them evolve hand in hand with history. We consider the island as a character in Call of the Sea and by improving all the visual effects we managed to transmit the player’s emotions in a fantastic way ”, he adds. It confirms, in turn, that the game is being developed under Unreal Engine, although it does not confirm the version of the engine.
