One of the biggest benefits of all that power in the hardware is giving developers the ability to make games that are Xbox Series X|S Optimized. This means that they’ve taken full advantage of the unique capabilities of Xbox Series X|S, both for new titles built natively using the Xbox Series X|S development environment as well as previously released titles that have been rebuilt specifically for the console. In our Inside Xbox Series X Optimized series, these creators will share the behind-the-scenes accounts of how they’re optimizing their titles for Xbox Series X|S and what that means for the future of gaming. Today, we’ll be chatting with Senior Producer at Rebellion Steve Archer about optimizing Zombie Army 4: Dead War for Xbox Series X|S.

In Unto The End you’re the intruder, not a hero trying to save the day. You can’t level up, switch classes, or find a magic sword. Survival is all about you. How you make it home, the opportunities you create, and the kind of challenges you face, all depends on your choices. Those choices (over a hundred of them) impact the items you get, supplies you gather, who you fight, and ultimately, the home you come back to.

When Unto launched in December, you could make it past many encounters without bloodshed. The new ‘Passive Run’ update, which is out now, allows you to get home without fighting or killing anything. That doesn’t mean it’s easy. Nor is it an options setting allowing you to turn off fights. Rather, it’s a different kind of challenge, one defined by the decisions you make each step of the way.
