Battlefield Hardline Will Run at 720p on Xbox One and 900P on PS4
Visceral’s upcoming cops vs criminal shooter, Battlefield Hardline resolution on current-gen consoles is confirmed. Any guesses? Well, the good news is that developers seem to be gunning for 60Fps. The bad news is that the game’s resolution has suffered due to frame-rate priority.
Native resolution of the PlayStation 4 version is going to be 900p, while the Xbox One version will have to settle for 720p. It would be a massive disappointment if they fail to lock BFH at 60Fps after this.

As for the PC version, those with beefy gaming machines won’t have to worry about a thing. PC version can go beyond 60Fps and a resolution over 1080p can be achieved. That is if your rig is capable enough of course.
What’s interesting is that 2013’s release of Battlefield 4 also supported 720p on Xbox One and 900p on PS4. Both games ran at 60Fps and it was expected that developers will be able to get more juice out of these consoles with time.
After almost 2 years, we are yet to see 60Fps/1080p on most games. PlayStation 4 certainly has an advantage over the Xbox One when it comes to hardware, but the Xbox One is still a powerful machine. Releasing a game in 2015 with a native resolution of 720p is just unacceptable to me.
However, it is also a fact that not many of us will actually be able to tell the difference between both versions. Are you contented with these native resolutions? Or do you think both consoles can do better?
Battlefield Hardline is heading to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC later this month.
