Lords of the Fallen Runs at Native 900p on Xbox One and 1080p on PS4 – Hitting Full HD on Xbox One is Tougher
A year of the eighth generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles is almost to its end, but there are some issues that have followed the consoles right from the start, and have managed to come this far. One of the very serious issues that have troubled Microsoft’s Xbox One console is “resolution-gate,” and it is clear that the manufacturer hasn’t been able to resolve it. Fueling the fire once again, the developer of an upcoming highly anticipated hack and slash action role-playing video game title called Lords of the Fallen has revealed that the game runs at native 1080p resolution on the PlayStation 4, but same is not the case with the Xbox One.
Lords of the Fallen Runs at Native Full HD 1080p Resolution on PS4 and 900p on Xbox One – Looks “Pretty Much Similar” on Both
Even after one year of its life cycle, and developers’ improved optimization methods, Microsoft’s Xbox One console still suffers from the resolution-gate issues, which means that developers still find it difficult to hit full HD 1080p resolution mark with their games for the console. The latest addition to the list of the video games that run at lower resolution on Microsoft’s console is Lords of the Fallen, which is an upcoming major triple A action role-playing game that is being developed by Deck13 Interactive in collaboration with CI Games.
Talking to VideoGamer, Lords of the Fallen’s creative director Tomasz Gop confirmed that while the PlayStation 4 version will run at native full HD 1080p resolution, the Xbox One version of the game will only support native 900p resolution. However, speaking about the differences between the two versions in a new gameplay walkthrough, Gop stated that both versions are “pretty much similar,” and resolution is apparently the only difference. He said:
Lords of Fallen on PS4/Xbox One are “pretty much similar, but probably the resolution [on Xbox One] is like 900p instead of 1080p on PlayStation 4. But apart from that there’s nothing different I would say.”
Gop had already revealed earlier this year that the developer of the game had been trying its best to hit 1080p mark on both consoles, but it was “slightly tougher” for Xbox One to handle the game at native full HD resolution. He explained today that Lords of the Fallen is very close to its completion, and it has been already certified for launch in the US, so these resolution figures are final, and there will apparently be no more resolution bumps between now and release of the game.
“It’s really, really close [to completion], pretty much the only thing that we’re doing is last minute fixes, but we’ve already been certified. We’re already past the US certification for PlayStation.”
Lords of the Fallen is a next-gen exclusive title and it will be launched only for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 28, 2014. What do you think about the resolution of the game on the latest consoles, and console parity? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
