We have some very surprising news for early PS4 launch buyers now and it is news that is going to be treated with mass pleasure we feel. As you may know, the PS4 version of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag ships with a 900p resolution, the same as Battlefield 4.
However, Ubisoft has just confirmed that they will shortly be providing an update to the game. This update is going to boost the game so that it can output at 1080p native – fantastic news for all PS4 users who have the game, or are planning to get it.
This is pretty big news for a number of reasons – one since it will obviously boost the overall graphics quality of the game moving forward. However, the biggest thing to come out of this we feel, as it confirms that all PS4 developers have the ability to upgrade their games to 1080p as well if they are unable to achieve this at launch.
It bodes well for those that are planning to pick up Sony’s console, and also cements the argument that consumers shouldn’t really settle for anything less than 1080p native resolution across all games. There’s no set date for when the 1080p update will be available, but Ubisoft has said that it will be coming soon.
The game already looks glorious in 900p, so it will be fascinating to see what the boost up to 1080p native can do in terms of visuals – we can’t wait to see the graphics comparison videos. As far as we’re aware, the Xbox One version of the game isn’t 1080p either, with unconfirmed reports putting the resolution at either 720p or 900p.
What is your reaction to the news – are you pleasantly shocked that Ubisoft can upgrade the PS4 version to 1080p native?
