Myst Remake in Game Pass Will be a Visual Feast in 4K

We've learned the technical details of the Myst remake, which will hit Xbox Series X/S and Game Pass consoles next week.

Microsoft reminded us that Myst, a remake of the iconic 1993 adventure game, is coming to Game Pass next week. We already heard of it yesterday but now an entry has appeared on the official blog with information on the technical aspects of the next-gen release.

The game is to run at 60 fps in 4K on Xbox Series X. The same frame rate will be achieved on the Xbox S Series, but in 1440p. These will not be native resolutions. Myst will be one of the first games on XSX/S to use AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution, a technology prepared as an answer to Nvidia's DLSS. So the image will be a little less sharp in some places, but the solution will provide a 75% increase in performance.

Lower sharpness when using AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution can be seen mainly in distant objects.

Recall that Myst will be available to Game Pass subscribers on August 26 and will be playable by owners of Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles. The game will also be available in the cloud (xCloud).

The remake was developed by Cyan, the same team that was responsible for the original. The refreshed Myst was released last December on PC and Oculus Quest. The release day on Game Pass is also expected to be the production's debut date on Xbox consoles, and it will also be available for purchase in digital distribution outside of the subscription.

It is worth mentioning that in the past Myst has been refreshed many times. The first version of the game was released in 1993 on Macintosh computers, and a year later it appeared on Windows PCs. Remaster entitled Myst: Masterpiece Edition debuted in May 2000, and six months later a remake hit the market in the form of RealMyst, which ditched the pre-rendered locations in favor of full 3D. This game also lived to see a refreshed version titled realMYST: Masterpiece Edition, released in 2014.
