4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison
When moving up the graphical setting in this game one thing came to mind very quickly, that this game looks fantastic when cranked up to medium settings or higher, giving us some spectacular lighting and some of the prettiest scenes that we have ever seen in gaming.
Sadly at the Low and Lowest setting the game does take a huge visual hit, with shadows and lighting taking a huge drop in quality and textures becoming a blurry mess in places. The difference in the lowest and low settings is minimal, but this is mostly due to the fact that only AA options are changed. One question this raises is why the low settings of Quantum Break have AA on in the first place?
This scene really shows how greatly the lighting and textures change when moving from Low to medium settings, with the environmental details becoming a blurry mess in places and the lighting becoming significantly worse.
All that you really need to do is look at the protagonist's, Jack Joice's, face and you will see that there are huge differences in the graphical quality.
Medium is the optimum settings to use for the game, as it keeps the balance right between great graphics and a good framerate, though even at these settings many people will still struggle to get this game to play well at even 1080p.
