Call of Duty: WW2 was released a few weeks ago but it still remains in the spotlight. With the recent release of Xbox One X, a comparison video of Call of Duty: WW2 on both Microsoft’s and Sony’s latest consoles was inevitable. Digital Foundry, as expected took the initiative to bring us the full insight. As it seems, the game has almost identical graphics on both consoles making it hard to pick a winner. It falls to the small details to show which company delivered the highest performance on Call of Duty: WW2.
As explained, Call of Duty: WW2 is using a totally different graphics orientation than Infinite Warfare and the titles before it. As the previous titles were more focused on cross processing and film grain to deliver more dramatic cinematics, Call of Duty: WW2 is oriented towards a more smoother gameplay image than the cinematic experience.
Regarding resolution, Xbox One X seems to be more close to a native 4K than Playstation 4 Pro, which makes its image softer and even blurry at times. Don’t expect this comparison to be something extremely noticeable. As aforementioned, we are talking specifics here.
What may concern most players is the matter of targeting frames per second and here both consoles are performing extremely well. Even though maintaining a balance between smooth graphics and high resolution and performance is more difficult on a console than on PC, both Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 are keeping their 60 frames per second at all times, even in scenes with a lot of explosions and so on.
Stuttering and hiccups are probably the main issues you may face in both versions of Call of Duty: WW2. While the game always runs on 60FPS there are times, specifically when changing areas or maps etc., where you will experience minor hiccups. As Digital Foundry suggests, those stutters are more frequent on the Xbox One X, but it’s probably due to the game streaming components so we expect this to be fixed soon enough.
Summing up, both Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro versions of Call of Duty: WW2 seem to be performing in a stellar way even in a game with such graphics and gameplay pressure. Microsoft’s console may be a tiny bit more powerful in some aspects but a normal player wouldn’t tell the difference in any way.
