Watch Dogs PS4 release to be 1080p says Ubisoft

With much having been made of the gameplay resolution differences of Sony and Microsoft’s latest console offerings, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed its Watch Dogs PS4 release will run at 1080p, Full HD.

Although the Xbox One Watch Dogs offering will not feature Full HD gameplay, Ubisoft’s Cinematics Animation Lead Lars Bonde has revealed the PS4 offering is set to satisfy gamers’ 1080p desires.

Speaking in a PC Game video interview, a clip which has since been made private on YouTube, Bonde claimed that the core Watch Dogs experience will be the same across both next-gen consoles despite the slight visual differences.

“The first thing I want to make clear is that, at its core, it’s the same experience on current-gen and next-gen consoles. You get the same gameplay out of it.,” the Watch Dogs designer stated.

He added: “Of course there are nuances to it. We are utilising 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.

Previous reports have suggested that the Xbox One Watch Dogs release will run at 960p/30fps, down on the PS4’s 1080p/30fps visuals.

Having originally been pencilled in as a next-gen launch title, Watch Dogs has been hit by a number of delays.

Last month Ubisoft confirmed that the eagerly awaited Watch Dogs release date will now be held on May 27 for all lead platforms apart from the Nintendo Wii U.

“We are pleased to be able to reveal to gamers all over the world the new release date for Watch Dogs,” Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at Ubisoft said in making the announcement.

“We are extremely confident that the additional time we afforded the dev team to refine and polish the game will be more than worth the wait.”
