EA confirms that Xbox One version of Battlefield 4 runs at 720p and targets 60 fps [Update]

By -

It seems like Battlefield 4 is going to run at 720p resolution at 60 fps for Xbox One. This news was confirmed to Game*Spark(Translated) by a EA representative during this week’s Eurogamer Expo. Battlefield 4 was already rumored to be running at 720p resolution for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while we haven’t heard the confirmation for PlayStation 4 version, Xbox One version is now confirmed at 720p/60.

Battlefield 4 dazzled everyone during its initial reveal at Microsoft’s E3 conference. It looked stunning for sure. Unfortunately, as it turned out, the reveal gameplay was running on a PC instead of a actual Xbox One. Later, it was rumored that both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version will be targeting 720p resolution at 60 fps. The reason that was given behind this rumor was that Dice wanted to ensure stable performance with the highest quality graphics.

This rumor turned out to be false, especially for PlayStation 4, as a Dice developer took it to twitter to clarify that this was not the final resolution for Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4. But there was never any explanation given for Xbox One version’s resolution.

So on the one hand, we have a unconfirmed resolution for Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4 while on the other hand, we have now finally gotten the official confirmation of Battlefield 4 resolution and fps on Xbox One.

So what does this mean for PlayStation 4. Will it be able to render at 1080p and still provide 60 fps or will the developers choose to keep a more modest and less taxing resolution i.e 900p for Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4. We don’t know this yet but we will surely know about it as well.

Update: According to a update on Game*Spark, EA is aiming for same resolution and fps on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Game*Spark advises to wait for the official resolution confirmation from DICE before ruling out any resolution/fps.

    Of course they’ll drag down the PS4 version; Microsoft is paying for early DLC for their consoles, there’s NO WAY they’d let DICE allow the PS4 version to be better.

          Hey guys…It says that it CAN utilize 8 cores, meaning increased performance if you have 8 cores. It’s not necessary regardless of what processor you have.

        Battlefield 4 was built with support for AMD 8-cores, unlike Skyrim and other last-gen console ports.

        In fact, all console ports from November and on will support AMD 8-core chips because that’s what they’re originally built for.
