Oh well, no 1080p for now folks. Ubisoft has confirmed on the UbiBlog that Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag runs at a native resolution of 900p on Playstation 4.
Gary Steinmenn the communications manager at Ubisoft revealed the news today rather coyly stating that the game runs at a resolution that is “very close to 1080p” later pinching in 900p. No need to get too mad about it though, this is neither a permanent aspect nor will it make too much of a difference.
Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier claims:
If it’s running at 720p vs 1080p, you’re going to notice the difference, by far,” Trottier explains. “But if it’s set at a resolution that’s very close, where most of the pixels are already there in internal processing, most people won’t see any difference.
As far as the 1080p native resolution is concerned, that will come soon with an update sometime after the game is released. You will have to get that update installed in order to enjoy the resolution you were promised in the first place.
While working the extra time trying to polish the 1080p resolution, folks at Ubisoft have also developed a new anti-aliasing technique that will diminish the jagged edges. The feature will be shipped along with the resolution update to PlayStation 4 as well as to Xbox One.
How many of you have held their horses on Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag just so that you could play it on Playstation 4 and Xbox One?
