Confirmation that the developers are aiming for 60 FPS, 4K resolution with full ray-tracing. For those who may not know, ray tracing is a rendering technique that generates an image by tracing the path of light as pixels in an image plane and simulating the effects of its encounters with virtual objects. In other words it simulates realistic lighting:
We are targeting 4K 60 FPS full ray-tracing. The quality settings of the ray-tracing will depend on how things run.

Ray-tracing is not to far off from doing full dynamic lighting, it’s reacts like real world light. In engine so far pretty easy and results are absolutely beautiful 😇

We also have confirmation that Quantum Error will be developed for for the PS5 first, then ported to the PS4:
However, it remains to be seen whether this will be a launch title. Which makes sense since those announcements are usually made with much bigger fanfare:
Can’t say yet 😇 we have to see how development progresses.

It seems that TeamKill Media is aiming for the stars with their new title, which will be an excellent way to see how well developers can adapt and fully realize the specs of the next-gen consoles. Quantum Error an atmospheric first-person horror shooter that’s set in a moderately far future where Earth is no longer a safe place for humanity. Based on the reveal trailer, it seems we are mostly likely taking on the role of a firefighter in an oil platform (or something similar)in the Farallon Islands. According to the opening narration, referring to “beyond the bounds of space” as the key for advancement
TeamKill’s previous titled, launched back in November 2019, was Kings of Lorn: The Fall of Ebris. It was their debut project that had excellent visuals but unfortunately suffered from various technical issues. Hopefully this go around we’ll have a more polished game, especially considering the hardware they’re working with now.
