New forthcoming action, shooter from DICE, the Battlefield 1 will be released after a couple of months from now and every other day, the team shares some new details for the game which starts building up the hype and more attention from the Battlefield lovers.
Battlefield 1 To Target 60 FPS on PS4 and Xbox One: DICE
According to DICE, developers are trying to target 60 frames per second on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Though it would be difficult for the developers as most of the games struggles at 1080p, 30 fps and 900p running at 30 fps on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One respectively.
Even the previously released Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline ran at 720p, 60 FPS and 900p at 60 FPS on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so it appears that with the new Battlefield 1, console gamers may get 60 fps but with lower resolution.
Both Sony and Microsoft have realized the issue of frame rates and resolution on the consoles and both are now working on a new high-end 4K capable console code-named as PlayStation 4 Neo and Project Scorpio. Microsoft revealed Project Scorpio this year during the E3 press conference while Sony is yet to reveal the technical specs of its new console.
The new Battlefield 1 uses DirectX 12 API, as it can be seen through the closed alpha gameplay footage where the option of enabling or disabling the new API was spotted. Maybe using DX 12 on a Frostbite engine based game have reduced load and managed to increase some frame rates on the both hardware.
Anyhow, we will see what happens, whether the developers will be able to achieve their target and how things go on. We will keep you updated!
