At last, multiplayer survival game Oxide is coming to PS4 and Xbox One this spring. Double Eleven, which is porting the game from PC, will release the console versions of Oxide May 21.
Oxide It assigns you the task of staying alive in a dangerous open world. You will need to find resources, get food, and build shelters. Up to 100 players can be on the same server, and how you interact with them (or avoid them) is up to you. The PC version has exploded in recent months after some popular Twitch streamers started playing it. Oxide had an average Steam player count of nearly 118,000 at one point in February.
The Oxide The console editions will be a different experience than the PC version with a separate roadmap. Double Eleven plans to update the PS4 and Xbox One ports regularly with its own enhancements, along with content from original developer Facepunch. There will be cross-game support for the console versions, but you won’t be able to enter the same server as the PC players.
Get Oxide Running decently on consoles took a lot of work, according to Double Eleven. He noted that early PS4 and Xbox One units have CPUs equivalent to a 2013 MacBook Pro, which is a far cry from what you would need to run the PC version of Oxide.
During the first test of the console, it took up to 45 minutes to load the huge game map. Double Eleven managed to reduce the loading time to around a minute, thankfully. Here is hope Oxide It will activate even faster on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.
Pre-orders are now open for the Oxide console editions. The standard version costs $ 50 and includes a pre-order bonus pack with weapons and tools. The $ 70 Deluxe Edition includes early access and closed beta entry, and a few other perks. Opt for the latest $ 80 edition and you’ll get all the benefits of the other versions, along with 1,100 Rust Coins and a special skin pack.
