Battlefield 4 PS4 resolution doubts raised

If you have been watching gameplay videos of the excellent-looking Battlefield 4, you would have noticed that the majority of videos seen were taken from the PC version of the game. With this in mind, everyone is eager to see what the next-gen PS4 and Xbox One builds look like in comparison, but recent reports coming out of GameCom suggest that the current resolution for these versions may not be too impressive on first glance.

Although it has already been confirmed that PS4 and Xbox One versions of Battlefield 4 will support 64-players, it seems as if EA are still not ready to show any gameplay of this to the public. At GamesCom, players were instead treated to 16-player matches on PS4 but without the highest resolution that we have seen on the PC version.

A rather interesting report from IGN claims that the graphics are currently ‘lacking’ on the PS4 version, even going as far to say that the game was only running at a resolution slightly higher than 720p, not 1080p which is what everyone is expecting to see on next-gen console hardware.

Further worries may lie in the Tweet below, which apparently suggests that Battlefield 4 will only run at 720p, but upscaled to 1080p upon release – ie not native. While this maybe a cause of concern for you, it’s important to note that the footage was only a demo, meaning that DICE could well improve things significantly before the October 29 date arrives.

Would you be disappointed if you find out that Battlefield 4 on PS4 and Xbox One will not run at a native 1080p resolution? Let’s hope we get this issue cleared up soon.
