Resident Evil Village doesn't just look like one of the spookiest new entries in the long-running franchise, it also appears to be capable of delivering a few jump scares with impressive visuals. Arriving on a variety of console platforms as well as PC in May, Capcom has shared a list of the resolutions and frame rates you can expect depending on your console and chosen graphics settings.
For the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, players will be able to explore Castle Dimitrescu and the surrounding village in 900p on the base model consoles. The Xbox One version of the game will run at 30fps according to Capcom, while the standard PS4 version is capable of reaching 45fps. For those with an Xbox One X or PlayStation 4 Pro, both consoles feature more significant gains depending on the mode you choose to play Resident Evil Village in.
A performance mode on both consoles will max the game out at 1080p running at 60fps, while the high resolution mode increases the resolution to 4K at the cost of the frame rate which will be capped to 30fps.Continue Reading at GameSpot

"Bloomberg has reported today that there is interest from several buyers to acquire Square Enix," the company said. "However, this report is not based on any announcement by Square Enix Holdings Co. Ltd. We do not consider selling off the company or any of its businesses, nor have we received any offer from any third party to acquire the company or any part of its business."
The Bloomberg story didn't mention which companies were interested in purchasing Square Enix. And although Square Enix's statement states that no offers have been made, it doesn't rule out the possibility that companies are indeed interested in buying the company.Continue Reading at GameSpot
