Intel’s Arc Alchemist graphics card effort has allegedly been wrought with delays, and now it seems that the company’s new AI-enhanced upscaling technology is no exception. Despite claiming that the game would launch with the feature this week in an interview with Wccftech, the developers behind Dolmen have now shared the disappointing news that their “terrifying” new futuristic action RPG will still release on May 20 as planned, but only with AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (1.0) and NVIDIA DLSS. Massive Work Studios has confirmed that Intel XeSS won’t be added to the title until this summer, which suggests a debut somewhere between the end of June and late September. To be fair, Intel had originally promised that XeSS wouldn’t be released until “early summer.”
Intel XeSS will be available for Dolmen this summer! https://t.co/vWu7O0N2nO— Dolmen (@DolmenGame) May 16, 2022
Will XeSS support be available at launch?
I think I can tell you that everything, including the partnership with Intel, will be released in the Day One patch.
Does Dolmen support any other upscaling technologies, such as AMD’s FSR and NVIDIA’s DLSS?
Yes. The technologies you mentioned are in and will be working with the game.
Okay, that’s nice. Are you planning to upgrade AMD FSR to the 2.0 version?
Dolmen will ship with FSR 1.0, but we have the intention to upgrade to 2.0, yes.
