With the rise of 4K display sales, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles have been tapped into by just about every major release over the past year or so. With most titles looking at higher 4K resolutions as their go-to enhancements. In a recent interview with Hardcore Gamer, id Software Studio Director Tim Willits offers a brief glimpse at the upcoming RAGE 2, running on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

To make it simple, on the enhanced consoles, it runs at 1080p/60fps. On base hardware, it runs at 30fps. On PC, it’s uncapped. We went for speed over 4K for the enhanced consoles.

Targeting performance over resolution is a welcome choice for a fact-paced action shooter like RAGE 2. During the launch of the Xbox One X Microsoft's own Gears of War 4 offered a similar 1080p/60fps mode for the enhanced console, in addition to a 4K/30fps mode.

Currently both Microsoft and Sony do not offer any specific requirements for developers when it comes to how they use the additional power of each console - which has led to some instances where higher-resolution versions of titles offer little-to-no performance improvements. It's great to see RAGE 2 going this route, as just about the only thing that we could think of from our recent hands-on time with the game that might negatively affect the experience - would be an erratic frame-rate.
