Battlefield: Hardline Will Also Run at 1080p/60FPS on Xbox One
It is an established fact that PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield: Hardline will run at 1080p with 60 frames per second. Given the fact that almost every multiplatform title (Speaking of Xbox One and PlayStation 4) always had downgraded resolution on Xbox One than its PlayStation 4 counterpart, what about the upcoming first-person shooting title?
In an interview with Gaming Bolt, Creative Director of Battlefield: Hardline Ian Milham has confirmed that the Xbox One version will also run on 60 frames per second at 1080p resolution.
Declaring PC as the ultimate authority, Milham stated that they have always strived to create multiplatform, with the exception of PC, versions on par with each other.
If you look at the games that Visceral Games has made before, we have always strived for total parity between our platforms. Of course, the PC version, it will do whatever your PC can handle, and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will obviously not be as high res as compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. But those two [PS4 and Xbox One] should be locked in together.
All of this seems like a result of Kinect-less Xbox One SKU which has granted 10% additional GPU power. Furthermore, Microsoft has tricks like DirectX 12 and Cloud-Computing up its sleeve which will ensure that it runs games as good as a PlayStation 4.
Furthermore, developers have started to have better understanding of the architect of Xbox One which has enabled them achieve this goal.
Taking a different route than its predecessors, Battlefield: Hardline is currently in its beta phase on PlayStation 4 and PC and will launch across Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on Oct. 21, 2014, later this year.
