Star Wars Battlefront – PC Ultra vs. PS4 Graphics Comparison; Runs @ 900p on PS4/720p on Xbox One


Star Wars Battlefront is one of the most optimized multi-platform games around, even at its current Beta stage. Several tests have proven that the latest title from DICE delivers great performance on a variety of PC setups, ranging from middle-class builds to high-end, providing a more than adequate experience for everyone. The console versions, do an equally good job, given the limitations of their weaker hardware, striving for a 60fps experience, which for the most part, seems to be somewhat attainable. The PlayStation 4 version of the game renders at a native 1600x900 or 900p, which provides a relatively sharp image, which is then upscaled to 1080p. YouTube's Candyland has released a side by side video comparison between the two versions, which can be viewed below.

The PS4 version of Star Wars Battlefront does a good job of delivering a 60fps experience at high quality settings

According to Digital Foundry's performance analysis of the PS4 version of Star Wars Battlefront, the console runs at the equivalent of high quality on PC:

The PS4 version runs at the equivalent to the high quality preset on PC - including settings for textures, ambient occlusion, post-processing, meshes, and 'terrain groundcover'.

Star Wars Battefront runs at a native 900p on the PS4, while it renders at only 720p on the Xbox One. The image quality is noticeably better on the PlayStation 4 version, with the game on the Xbox One looking a bit blurry around the edges. The game is still in its Beta stage however, so some improvements could be made before its release next month. DICE seems to be focusing on delivering a solid 60fps experience, and they seem to be doing good enough in that respect.

Star Wars Battlefront will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 19, 2015. We will bring you any new information on Star Wars Battlefront as soon as it becomes available.
