Cosmodread launched yesterday on PC VR and Oculus Quest and it chilled us to our core with its eery visuals paired with unbelievable sound design. However, will you be equally spooked on both platform? Learn on for our Cosmodread graphics comparability.
Cosmodread Graphics Comparability
I don’t fairly have the identical nerve of senior editor David Jagneaux, our reviewer of Cosmodread, however with squinted eyes and clenched fists I delved into just a few runs on each variations of the sport and was stunned at how nicely White Door Video games saved the Quest model on par with the PC VR model. On this comparability we’re taking a look at PC VR vs Quest 2.
Lighting & Colour
First off, sure that is an extremely darkish and moody recreation so there isn’t going to be a drastic distinction right here. Nonetheless, whereas looking out darkish corridors along with your wrist torch you’ll be able to discover a much more contrasted distinction in mild and darkish on the PC VR model, whereas the Quest 2 one has a extra mild glow to it. You’ll be able to see beneath whereas I’m inserting the blue key card into the door. This undoubtedly gave me completely different vibes of horror – the overexposed highlights of PC VR made me scared at what horrid particulars I’d occur throughout, and the uninteresting shadows of Quest 2 saved me in a continuing state of questioning if I used to be taking a look at a panel or a monster.
PC VR vs Quest 2 Blue Keycard
Within the opening shot of the ship exploding it’s clear to see shade saturation is much extra intense in comparison with the washed out sparks emitting within the Quest 2 model. Coloured glows, or blooms, additionally go amiss within the Quest 2 model which you’ll discover not solely right here but additionally onboard the ship with button lights, your wrist flashlight, and the management panels adorning the partitions.

When wanting on the gory alien tissue that’s taking on your ship, the Quest 2 model has a much more generic slimey sheen over the flesh whereas the PC VR model has a greater positioned, ‘3D’ impact working with the shadows. The colour vary doesn’t differ that a lot, however in fact the modelling of the flesh is the stand-out level, bringing us to our subsequent part.
Textures & Fashions
As David stated in his evaluate, the Quest 2 model has a muddied look and total lack of definition when in comparison with the PC VR model.
Beginning with the flesh that plagues the hallways, you’ll be able to see an actual lack of depth and life within the Quest 2’s scabbed over textures. It virtually seems burnt or dried on, which truly made me really feel just a little extra nauseous than the gooey, moist raised growths on PC VR.
Whereas inspecting the partitions, I virtually felt like squinting – not out of concern this time, however lack of visible readability in textures. The partitions have been blurred on Quest 2, whereas you’ll be able to inform on PC VR that the partitions have a rusted or frozen texture to them. This didn’t precisely come throughout within the standalone headset.
PC VR vs Quest 2 Partitions
However in the case of the distinction in fashions there was little degradation when bringing Cosmodread over to the standalone headset. The one cases I seen within the above video have been small particulars just like the keycards slot – on the PC VR model there are extra indentations and complicated divets, however the Quest 2 model was virtually compressed as compared. This could possibly be as a consequence of lack of lighting on the main points, but it surely was exhausting to inform.
I couldn’t discover the very same double of a lump of alien flesh I discovered on Quest 2 over on PC VR, in fact maintaining in thoughts this can be a procedurally generated recreation the place no two runs are the identical. Nonetheless, the general high quality within the chunks throughout each variations do differ greater than anything within the recreation. On Quest 2 you’ll be able to see this nondescript liver-like wanting piece of flesh has little to no particulars on it, and it didn’t pulsate upon nearer inspection. However wanting on the PC VR’s grotesque sack of veins and blood that also had loads of life in it, it’s like night time and day. Once more, these aren’t immediately comparable, however the distinction in high quality nonetheless stands.

This VR graphics comparability jogged my memory a whole lot of our 5 Nights at Freddy‘s one, maybe since you play in equally darkish areas, or perhaps as a result of I used to be equally as scared to essentially discover any distinction in graphics whereas within the headset. Nonetheless, it’s undoubtedly exhausting to disregard graphical variations after they’re facet by facet.
Whereas the Quest 2 is a improbable method to play Cosmodread, there’s no denying the PC VR model seems way more polished with sharper particulars, gooier gore and deliberate lighting.
