Players report Battlefield: Hardline does not run at 1080p for consoles
Earlier, the developers had hoped their game could run at its target 1080p and 60fps for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. However, recent statements from players have revealed that this is not the case.
Visceral Games and EA has now launched the Open Beta phase for their upcoming first-person shooter Battlefield: Hardline, giving a few players the opportunity to test out the game before its official launch. Naturally, many players have been eager to compare the different versions of the game. Earlier, the developers had hoped their game could run at its target 1080p and 60fps for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. However, recent statements from players have revealed that this is not the case.
According to a report by Games.on.net, the statements made by EA’s local PR people seemed to conflict with the teams earlier statements on the games resolutions at E3. They finally revealed that Visceral Games aims to get Battlefield: Hardline “playing at 60 FPS using the same resolution settings as [Battlefield 4]”. Keep in mind that Battlefield 4 ran at 900p on the PlayStation 4 and only 720p on the Xbox One.
This very different from Sony’s publisher, Adam Boyes, statement at last year’s E3. Boyes announced that players will experience the Hardline beta in 1080p and 60 fps. So far, players who have had a chance to try the Xbox One version of the game have reported that it does not seem to run at 1080p. In fact, many have been comparing it to Battlefield 4. But there are many sources stating that the game does run at 1080p, though these could be based on previous statements made by the developers.
The only option now is to wait for more players to get their hands on the PlayStation 4 version of the game. Also, since the game is in beta phase, it probably could change before its launch. You can check out the system requirements for Battlefield: Hardline here.
