I'm not sure if I'm getting the game but one of the devs said this on the game's ultrawide support:

I've also been told that the game uses an in-house engine, not Unity or Unreal Engine that we're familiar with. This would need to be confirmed though. I'll update the thread if I find out more.

EDIT: I modified the game .exe to remove the pillarboxing. See my post right here.

Hello, I've just tested on PC, no ultrawide support (21/9 3440x1440), black bars on left and right (looks like regular 16/9, no bars on top or bottom).

So dev are liars ;).

So hard to code Ultrawide ? -_- ....

Can we have a fix please guys ?

I also summarized the situation and whether the game supports other hardware here on PCGamingWiki. I did test for multimonitor support as well by changing to a custom resolution, and it was pillarboxed but seeing how the game allows you to select a screen, I wasn't sure, so it's still at "unknown" and needs proper testing by someone who actually has a triple monitor setup.

In other news, the same Saber Interactive dev said ultrawide support is planned. Let's hope it's not vert-

Hi I am Survival Junkie on the discord. I have both an Ulta Wide(Z35P) and also 3 Hp 23es monitors. What do you need tested with a triple monitor config? I might be able to try it for you.

For the wiki and general awareness, we need to know whether the game is pillarboxed for multimonitor users. You can also check whether the cutscenes are windowboxed by starting any campaign. You can take a screenshot / photo of the outcome too but that's not necessary.

I hope for this...

I can 100% verify that on Nvidia Surround @ 5760x1080 : 3x 1080p the game is pill boxed and the Left and Right screen have black overlays. Also I can verify that the FOV is low but not as an error it is the same as 1080p and just needs a slider so it is better aka 100 - 120ish. The game owns I really love it if they can add Ultra Wide and multi screen that be insane as well a FOV slider.

Here are some screens:

Also the game supports DX11 and Vulkan API, both work great and run super fast as well as the game looks real nice.

Here is the EXE I renamed them to wwzRetailEgs.zip_004.zip the original name is wwzRetailEgs.zip.004 so the file extension is .001 - .004 they are just a group of zip files. To get them to work just rename them back.

Ok, so I have figured out a way to get stretched image until we get patch from devs.
Im running a 3440x1440 monitor, and here is what I did:
1. go to C:\Users\(((your user name)))\AppData\Local\Saber\WWZ\client\storage
2. open video.dat with notepad.
3. Change to "WindowSizeX": 2560 and "OutputSizeX": 2560 instead of 3440 , and save.
4. In nvidia panel I go to desktop size and position (mine is in Swedish so I translated)
5. Scaling: Fullscreen , save.
6. Run game, should be in 2560x1440 , stretched.

Lets hope we get patch sooner than later from devs. They have it on the "to-do-list" apperantly.
