Visuals of Far Cry 6 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC

Recently, popular gaming YouTube channel ElAnalistaDeBits tested Far Cry 6 on multiple platforms. Visually, the game plays with a dynamic resolution of 2160p and 60 FPS on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. With the Series S, the game plays with a dynamic resolution of 1440p and 60 FPS. Far Cry 6 performs with an average resolution of around 1800p. However, the Series X provides a bit more resolution in most scenario compared to the PlayStation 5. The PC version plays the best as players can easily play with 2160p resolution with an Nvidia RTX 3080, thanks to AMD’s FSR Quality Mode.

While the Xbox console provides better resolution, the next generation Sony console provides improved reflections. Additionally, PC has DXR reflections which improves the quantity and quality of shadows in the game. However, players might face some glitches with some assets. Along with that, PS5, Xbox Series X and PC players can also download a 26 GB texture pack as well, which looks much better than the normal ones. The PC variant also has the highest draw distance. While the PS5 and Xbox Series X has similar draw distances, the Series S version has slightly less.
