Project Scorpio Might Run UWP Games in Native 4K Just Like PC
As the year comes closer to an end we are getting more leaks and information regarding the Project Scorpio and its native 4K compatibility that it will be bringing to the table. Windows Central says that games programmed natively for UWP on Windows 10 will run on Project Scorpio at native 4K.
Word has it that games like Gears of War 4 as well as Call of Duty: Infinite Warefare, found on the Windows 10 store already support this feature. This means that Project Scorpio can run PC games at native 4K provided the games have the needed programming to pull this off.
According to Windows Central:
“The Coalition has previously confirmed that Gears of War 4 is ready to run at a 4K resolution on Project Scorpio. This is because Project Scorpio can run 4K Windows 10 Store Universal Windows Platform (UWP) games natively. If you’ve played Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 or Rise of the Tomb Raider at a 4K resolution on a high-end PC, you already have an idea of how gorgeous games will look on Project Scorpio”.
Microsoft might be onto something here and this could be a good way of attracting developers to the UWP.
“Our source told us that any game programmed natively for UWP on Windows 10 will run on Project Scorpio with a trivial amount of changes. This has always been Microsoft’s vision for UWP”.
Xbox Scorpio developers kit will make it easier for developers to convert high-end games and move them to the Xbox platform.
“When a game is being run by a customer, it will detect the hardware making the runtime request and unpack the correct assets dynamically. Since UWP games on PC already support most Xbox features, including controllers, there will be a minimal amount of work involved when bringing PC UWP games to the Xbox consoles”
