If you're worried about the performance of upcoming open-world shooter Atomic Heart on current-gen platforms, you needn't be. Developer Mundfish has revealed that the game has some pretty ambitious targets when it comes to resolution and frame rate, and the studio sounds pretty confident that it can hit those targets.

On Twitter, a user asked Mundfish if the game will be able to hit 60fps at 1440p on consoles. Mundfish responded by promising that Atomic Heart will hit a "solid 60fps" with a consistent 4K resolution in dungeons, as well as "dynamic resolution, mostly 4K" during open-world sections, again at 60fps.

Those are pretty impressive targets, and if the game is able to hit them consistently, it'll be an attractive prospect indeed. Mundfish says this is restricted to "next gen of course", although the studio doesn't clarify whether "next gen" includes Xbox Series S. It's unlikely Atomic Heart can consistently hit 4K60 on Series S, but if it can, that'll be a sight to behold.

It's worth noting that not only does Mundfish not specify whether Xbox Series S is included in its definition of "next gen", but we also don't know what performance and resolution targets the studio has in mind for PS4 and Xbox One. It's likely we'll find that out in the coming weeks.

Atomic Heart is promising to be a seriously beautiful game on PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Another Twitter user asks Mundfish whether Atomic Heart will be ready for Steam Deck. In response, Mundfish says it will "try to make [Atomic Heart] available day one, but not confirmed yet". The game is due to arrive in February, so hopefully, Mundfish will reveal more info about whether Steam Deck players will be able to check it out on release soon.

Atomic Heart is an upcoming open-world FPS set in an alternate-history Soviet Union. It features a crafting system that lets you fuse weapons together from parts you scavenge from enemies or household appliances, as well as a glove that gives you access to powers like telekinesis, lightning bolts, and ice. It looks like it'll provide a pretty intense combat experience, too.

You'll be able to get your hands on Atomic Heart when it lands on February 21st. It's arriving on PC, PlayStation consoles, and Xbox platforms, and it'll also be available on day one on Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass. Stay tuned to TechRaptor for more news about this one.
