Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is officially out in the wild. This is an updated version of Dark Souls II that supposedly matches what From Software had initially had in mind for the game graphically before they had to downgrade things in order to get it running well on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Now, Scholar of the First Sin is out, and it’s available as a DirectX 11 and DirectX 9 update on then PC and as a full game on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Digital Foundry did the work of comparing the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin on Eurogamer, and the results point towards the PlayStation 4 as the best console version of the game.
You can see the framerate test in the video at the head of this post. While the PlayStation 4 offers the better overall performance, the tests share good news for both systems.
Both games routinely hit 60fps. The PlayStation 4 version’s lowest framerate is 48fps. The Xbox One’s lowest is 36fps. In terms of dropped frames over the course of the entire test, the PS4 dropped 296 while the Xbox One dropped 1,573.
For resolutions? Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 offer pure 1920×1080. Yep, 1080p on both, and that includes FXAA anti-aliasing. That bit is fantastic news.
So, the PlayStation 4 version is better purely in terms of framerate. Digital Foundry offers that this is especially noticeable in combat and pushes them towards labeling it the definitive version.
But, either way you go, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 offer the best console versions of Dark Souls II.
