During the recent Game Access show in Brno, Warhorse Studios was fielded questions about the recent reveal of Kingdom Come Deliverance 2. This follow-up to the 2018 open-world title is set to be an amazing game when it releases worldwide later this year. , but some concerns have been raised about how it will run on certain platforms.

At Game Access, the producer is Martin Klima Grilled on this very topic. He explained that due to the technical limitations of the Xbox Series S, the scope of Kingdom Come Deliverance 2 was affected, which meant the team couldn’t make the game as big as they wanted.

In terms of technical specs, the Series S has just 10 GB of RAM, which is a little over 25% more RAM. The last generation of home consoles.

On PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, Kingdom Come Deliverance 2 has been confirmed to run at 4K / 30 FPS. On the Xbox Series S, that drops to 1440p and 30 FPS. As an aside, on a PC using an RTX 4080 Super and 7950X3D CPU, Kingdom Come Deliverance 2 was noted to be pushed to 4K / 80 FPS using NVIDIA DLSS.
