During a recent video tour of Ubisoft Montreal’s studio, Watch Dogs’ cinematics animation lead Lars Bonde revealed an interesting new tidbit of information; saying that the PlayStation 4 version of the game will be able to handle 1080p high-definition resolution.
The video tour, which was hosted by PC Games, has since been made private — but not before a transcript of what was said during the tour was released online. According to what Bonde said to PC Games while on the tour, there will be no major gameplay differences between the new-gen and last-gen console versions of Watch Dogs, but that when it comes to graphics and resolution, the development team is naturally taking as much advantage of the newer consoles and their added power as they can:
“We are utilizing Xbox One to its full capabilities and the same with PS4, of course, so I know that, as far as to my knowledge, on PS4 it will run in full HD.”
Playing at 1080p resolution as opposed to the standard 720p might not be a deciding factor for every gamer, but for those who want the very best in graphical fidelity and quality it sounds like getting the PlayStation 4 version of Watch Dogs is the way to go.
Watch Dogs is set to release on May 27 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. A Wii U version is planned for release at a later unconfirmed date.
