Tequila Works Gives an Overview of Rime’s PS4 Pro Enhancements, Says It Wants to Balance It Out

Rime developer Tequila Works has said that it’s targeting a frame-rate and resolution of 30fps/1080p on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and although the game will offer a higher frame-rate on the PS4 Pro, the studio wanted to achieve a balance between “having more frame rate than in a normal PS4 but adding some visual improvements that helped Rime to look even better.” Speaking to Wccftech, Lead Progammer Carlos Vázquez said that the increase in frame-rate for PS4 Pro will vary between 5-10fps “depending on the game’s area.” Additionally, he gave a quick rundown of improvements as follows: –          Much better quality of the shadows.–          Temporal antialiasing has better quality, obtaining more definition and quality in the AA filter.–          The LODs’ distance has been tweaked to increase the visual quality of fauna and flora during the time they are rendered.–          More definition in the texture filter.–          The VFX, shaders, materials and translucency has better quality too so we can have, for example, more realistic metals, better screen space reflections and better detail level in general. As for HDR, Vázquez says that the support Rime offers is the default one that comes with Unreal Engine, and the developer didn’t feel READ FULL STORY…

Tequila Works Discusses Rime’s Rocky Development

Former PlayStation exclusive Rime has been the subject of many rumors since it was first announced in 2013. Now that the game is finally set to release this May for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, developer Tequila Works is starting to open up about the game’s development cycle. While they admit that there were times they thought the project would have to be canceled at certain points, it was never due to any funding issues. “There were a lot of moments where we thought that the game wasn’t going to be released,” said the game’s creative director Raul Rubio to IGN. ” In fact, I was completely sure of that once. Fortunately, that didn’t happen.” Rubio told the outlet that when the game was in trouble it was always due to technical issues the team was trying to overcome, and that when the most recent cancellation rumors were spreading the studio was in the process of moving to a larger office. Despite the rocky development cycle (more of which is detailed over at IGN’s excellent interview), Rubio does believe that Rime is a better game for it. “We are now using Unreal Engine 4,” said the director. “That engine has evolved, READ…

Rime Gets Re-Revealed; Coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch in May


Stunning Open World Game “Rime” Heading to Xbox One, PS4 and Switch Says Rating Board

Rumor Has It That the Turbulent Rime Is Venturing Into the Realm of Multi-Platform Availability Relatively Soon For those of you with an excellent memory, you probably recall all the details for Gamescom 2013 as if it were yesterday. So you remember Rime then, an open world adventure game that was slated to be released by developers Tequila Works. Sony announced the game as a PS4 exclusive and it was said it would feature beautiful colorful aesthetics. For those who need a refresher check out the following trailer. The game is visually beautiful and very reminiscent of recent titles like The Last Guardian or Ni No Kuni. Unfortunately, it has not been smooth sailing for the whimsical game from the beginning. It was leaked in 2014 that the game was originally pitched to Microsoft as Echoes of the Sieren, but they passed. But then on March 16, 2016, it was announced the game will no longer be a PlayStation Exclusive by Sony either. Tequila Works issued a statement at the time saying they had “chosen to reacquire the rights to its open world adventure game, RiME,” and “is working hard to realize its aspirations for it”.
