When it came to developing the Tekken 7 PlayStation 4 version, Bandai Namco had to ultimately choose between better imagery or stable frames per second. Considering that a high frame-rate is an absolute requirement for a fighting game, it is unsurprising that the developer went with the latter.
After conducting a series of testing, Digital Foundry has confirmed that the Tekken 7 PlayStation 4 version runs at 900p resolution. The trade-off, though, means that the game is able to pump a constant 60 frames-per-second.
It should be noted that this was the “master” build of the game, which is basically the final version. Any major changes from hereon is unlikely to happen.
The PlayStation 4 Pro version is yet to reveal its benchmarks but it is safe to say that Sony’s upgrade variant console will likely be able to hit the glorious 1080p resolution, while retaining the threshold of 60 frames-per-second.
Most recently, series director Katsuhiro Harada revealed that Tekken 7 aims to provide a more accessible experience for newcomers. This in light of the fact that majority of the series’ fan-base comprises casual players. The developer did not want to scare them off by delving into the game’s deep mechanics, which can take years to master.
Tekken 7 is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 2. Pre-ordering the digital version nets you an exclusive Tekken 7 theme alongside Eliza, the immortal blood-sucking vampire.
