Quantum Break Windows 10 PC Settings Revealed

Quantum Break Windows 10 PC Settings Revealed

With time-manipulating shooter Quantum Break hitting Windows 10 PC (in addition to the Xbox One), developer Remedy Entertainment revealed what graphical options you can expect when the game is out on April 5.

“By popular request, we decided to share the Windows 10 version graphics settings that you’ll be able to tweak to get the most out of your gaming set-up. With options varying between on/off, minimum, medium, high and ultra, you can adjust the graphical fidelity of Quantum Break to your liking and experience the game even in 4K resolution,” a post on the developer’s site reads.

Options range from being able to lock the frame rate to 30fps to adjust the quality of special effects and volumetric lighting. Its graphic settings do not look as anaemic as Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, promising some degree of customisation. Take a look at them below.

qb_pc_gfx_options1.jpgqb_pc_gfx_options2.jpgConsidering how poor Gears of War: Ultimate Edition fared on Windows 10, we wouldn’t keep our hopes up for Quantum Break’s PC debut. More so after it was revealed that viewing the game’s live-action episodes require you to be connected to the Internet on PC. This decision was taken to save hard drive space because the videos are in 4K resolution for the platform, making streaming the only viable alternative as per the game’s narrative designer Greg Louden. Although Xbox One owners can download them in 1080p, this option has not been extended to those on Windows 10 PC. If you’re still undeterred, here are the game’s PC requirements.

At the time of writing this, the Windows 10 version of the game has not been made available for pre-order for India just yet. It will be interesting to see what Microsoft prices it at, and if the company hikes its price weeks after release, just like it did with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

WhatsApp for Android Update Brings Revamped Settings Page

WhatsApp for Android Update Brings Revamped Settings Page

WhatsApp seems to be on a roll these days. The instant messaging application, after bringing pdf file sharing support, showing end-to-end encryption notification, and more, has this time tweaked the user Settings page for Android with a new layout, slightly better icons, and smoother animations.

The new user Settings page on WhatsApp comes as a part of the version 2.12.506, which is yet to be rolled out to Google Play or the WhatsApp website, but can be downloaded as an apk file from APK Mirror website (via Android Police). You can also be a part of Google Play beta programme to get the new version.

Besides the aforementioned design changes, the new WhatsApp version brings some changes in the placement of the options inside Settings page as well. The Profile settings option, which was until now seen placed at second position from top, has moved to the top and features the user’s profile pic. It however, bears the same functions – letting users change their profile image, status, name, and more. Slight modifications such as round profile picture instead of square, a floating action button on the profile pic to change the image, displaying phone number along with the status, and icon colour change from grey to green can be seen. The option is followed by Accounts, Chats, Notifications, Data Usage, About and help, and Contacts.

Tapping on the option gives you a page where you can take control as to what kind of media files WhatsApp will download when on Wi-Fi, on mobile data, or when in Roaming. Also, the ‘Chats and calls’ has now become just ‘Chats’ as the call settings now fall under the Data Usage option. Payment information page has been removed, which makes sense, as the app is now completely free. Outside the Settings page nothing seems to have changed.

Although it might take users some time to be familiarised with the update, it lets them access options in lesser taps than before. The app version will probably see a rollout over the air soon via Google Play.
