Killer Instinct Season 3 releases tomorrow on Xbox One and Windows 10 and Microsoft today released a video showcasing the game running on Windows 10. But instead of just showing a standard match being played out the video is actually showing off a cool “performance test” feature found in the game.
Players are encouraged to run the performance test before jumping in and in fact it looks as though it might be required before taking part in Ranked online matches. The feature lets you adjust your normal graphical settings, resolution, motion blur, anti aliasing, etc and run the test. The test looks like a full match played out by two high level CPU characters. Once the match concludes you are shown a screen with your PC’s Specs, the recommended graphic settings and a score indicating whether or not you are ready for Ranked play at those settings.
It seems like a smart move on the part of Microsoft, especially given the technical struggles of Gears of War Ultimate Edition on Windows 10 and competing fighter Street Fighter V’s own PC performance problems.
With Microsoft continue to bring it’s Xbox One games to Windows 10 it’s imperative for them that they don’t suffer game altering performance issues. This “performance test” in the Win10 version of Killer Instinct seems like a great way to do that.
