HDR and Dolby Atmos support
Xbox X has got these key additions:


- HDR display support for more vibrant and accurate colour representation.
- Spatial audio support, including Dolby Atmos, for true 3D audio.

Where is the update for PC? I would like response from Dev, thanks

Best Regards
Gaz

I would think if you have good headphones and sound card or even 5.0 or 7.0 speakers you should get 3d audio.

Hope the Windows 10 version gets all Xbox One X equivalent enhancements going forward, since I own several Xbox/Win10 games.

It better happen on PC and PS4. We bought the game too, we want all the features too.

Nixxes were not working on the HDR for pc since more than a year helped by Nvidia?

I want it too and Atmos! I bet we get srewed up like with every other games.

I agree. some of us paid good money for all the content when it was released. why should we be locked out of features for which only a select few get to enjoy, ignoring those of us who supported them on other platforms? Why must we need to buy another expensive device just so that we may get the same exact features, which can already be supported by devices we already own? I think we as a community need to be more vocal about this whole exclusivity issue. All it does is create a fragmented market that divides your loyal customers and established fanbase.

Which by the way, they have shown HDR being implemented on the PC for over a year, and not a word about it?. I mean, why bring it up at all if all your going to do is tease us.

The game has sold close to 2M copies on Steam alone. They should update the PC version.

I'm not sure how accurate it works without an update for the game itself, but Dolby Atmos and Windows Sonic both work on PC in games and are available if you have the proper sound setup or headphones.

It does work in this game currently and sounds great, but again I'm not sure if thats 100% accurate compared to a game patched to support these features.

I'm not an expert but as far as I know Rise uses the FMOD surround sound system. That renders sounds from all directions but on a flat plane so there would be no elevation in the audio - like a helicopter flying overhead for example.

Well, like I said, I'm not sure how accurate it is, but it does seem to work. there is a noticable difference.

However Dolby Atmos does come at a small cost for PC, I do beleive it has a free trial, so literally anyone can give it a shot. Windows sonic works the same way and is probably free.

Well, if you're speaking about headphones and Dolby "Atmos" HRTF-binaural audio (that's the proper term for 3D-audio on 2-channel headphones). Then yes, you would have to buy a license from a Windows Store Dolby Atmos-app, which is about 15€/$. Though you can try it free for a month. It may be better with Atmos movies, but I think Windows Sonic is maybe even better with games (and Creative's HTRF-implementation (for example SBX nowadays) is even better). And a great point is that Windows Sonic is free. You don't have to pay that license fee, if you're using an Atmos capable AV-amp, though.

I've had varied results in games between the two, some games work better with DA and some with WS, both work quite well though.

You do need proper headphones or sound setup to use these features, but many people seem to think Dolby Atmos isnt available on PC.

Main reason to buy games legaly is to get proper support and Updates but we can't seem to have this anymore excepts wortless fixes..
They didn't put hdr in Deus ex for pc so they probably won't for this game either. The PC counterpart always get forgotten with new consoles updates. Things that are compatible from the start on PC to begin with. That smells paid exclusivity.

Can anyone have a reply from nvidia and nixxes about their progress in this? Sorry but it's ridiculous..
Cock Holiday Nov 23, 2017 @ 8:30pm 
With the exeption of games that weren't previously announced for it, I think games that have already received HDR support on consoles, or games that still receive constant updates due to it's popularity, like Skyrim/Doom/Rainbow 6, "Though, Rainbow 6 might actually get it with the soon to be released visual overhaul update", or games that have a huge following and are money making machines, like CSGO or PUBG "basically Steams top sellers", should recieve cutting edge features like Atmos and HDR. The fans pour their heart and soul into these games, why shouldn't the devs do the same?

It would be a dream to play Skyrim in real HDR with mod support! Add to that Witcher 3, but Skyrim might have a better chance of getting it, since they haven't updated the Witcher 3 since the GOTY edition released last year. Skyrim is still receiving updates till this day, but mostly bug fixes. Through enough fan demand, that can change. HDR makes that big of a difference with a capable TV.
