Watch Dogs runs at 60fps in 1080p on PS4 according to Sony websiteWritten by: / / 4 Comments
The PS4 version of Watch Dogs will run at sixty frames per second in 1080p according to the game’s product page on the official PlayStation website. This frame rate value contradicts earlier statements from Ubisoft that the game would run at 30fps on both PS4 and Xbox One.
Sony’s Watch Dogs product description reads:
“The world of Watch Dogs comes alive on PS4 with the best graphics on any console and exclusive missions found only on PlayStation. Hack everything as you make your way through Chicago’s underground as you experience Watch_Dogs in a way that only PS4 can provide, at 60 Frames Per Second in 1080p.”
If this frame rate value isn’t an error then the next question is does the game run at a locked frame rate of 60fps which seems unlikely given Watch Dogs’ open-world environment and high level of detail, or an unlocked frame rate that can reach 60fps as was the case with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
The resolution of the Xbox One version of Watch Dogs is still unconfirmed – Ubisoft’s last open-world game for the console, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, runs at 900p on Xbox One.
Watch Dogs will be released on May 27th across PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. A Wii U version is also in development. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this ambitious new IP from Ubisoft.
