Assassin’s Creed Unity is, without a doubt, one of this year’s biggest releases. Not only is it a soft reboot for the franchise, it’s also our first taste of a true next-generation Assassin’s Creed title. But will it be running at full HD by the time PS4 players we get their hands on it?
While some are off enjoying their weekends, others have their eyes glued to digital store listings, which revealed some peculiar details about Unity on the PS4. Right now, Sony lists the game on PSN with an output resolution of 720p. Not the 1080p the title was assumed to be running at.
It’s important to take note that other titles who have had their resolution confirmed, such as Diablo III, have 1080p listed as their resolution output. So it’s not a discrepancy between minimum output and native.
There could be a few explanations for this though. It could be that Ubisoft hasn’t yet locked down the final specifications for Unity, making the 720p listing a placeholder. Considering how a man is attempting to sue Sony for lying about Killzone: Shadow Fall’s resolution, you can understand why Ubisoft wouldn’t want to jump the gun.
Or, it could just be a mistake. Ubisoft has stated before that they are aiming to reach 1080p and 60 FPS on both PS4 and Xbox One, and it would be surprising if they at least don’t reach that on Sony’s hardware. A game running below 1080p on the PS4 is almost like seeing the sun in the UK; unheard of.
Ubisoft is bound to comment of these rumours soon, so expect an update in the near future.
