If you thought that all of the footage in the Xbox Series X game trailers we’ve seen so far were running directly off of Microsoft’s next-gen console, think again.

In an interview with Wccftech, Scorn game director Ljubomir Peklar revealed that the 4K trailer footage for Ebb Software’s creepy, first-person horror title was actually running off of a PC with a Ryzen processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. To be fair, the trailer does include a disclaimer that implies the footage was not running off of a Series X, but Scorn fans may want to temper their expectations a bit just to be safe, being that there’s no way Microsoft’s next-gen console has a GPU that’s consistent with NVIDIA’s flagship.

Wccftech: The trailer was labeled as ‘in-engine footage representative of expected Xbox Series X visual quality’, which usually means it was running on PC. If so, can you share the specs used?

Ljubomir Peklar: Now, this is a tricky question as for some reason a lot of people feel that it should be quite easy to get 4K 60FPS on the PC even with this graphical fidelity, and that really isn’t the case. For the showcase we used 2080Ti and a Ryzen processor just because there was no reason not to use it, but a 2070 Super with a mixture of settings is adequate to run the game at 4K 60FPS.

Regardless of how the game ultimately looks, Scorn looks like a real treat for fans of the Alien movies. That’s because the game takes a lot of inspiration from the artworks of H.R. Giger, who is best known for the Xenomorph design.
