Rumor: The Division Closed Beta Runs at 1080p Resolution on Xbox One

i can't quite get over how...standard the game looks now. the delays (expectations of what's possible changing as new games release) and the downgrades have not been kind to this one. but at least it's running 1080p.

I played this game at eurogamer on Xbox One, resolution wise it looked like a rats ass.

I will be very impressed if this is true, although I imagine there will be sacrifices on both the Xbox One and PS4.

It is significantly sharper looking than the XB1 Alpha, which was probably the same build used at EGX.

Could always be a Destiny situation where they just went and made both versions identical.

Curious to see the DF analysis if there's any difference in IQ or frame rate between PS4 and XB1..

I wait for DF. I am sure they'll have something tomorrow.

Also, The Division looks so damn bland compared to the reveal trailer, not even funny.

The thing that's so crazy about this game in particular is that I actually think it looks quite nice, it just can't compare to the insane reveal quality. Honestly I think the biggest letdown here visually is animation, it looks stiff and given the overall fidelity, it stands out more than most games. This is exacerbated by a lack of motion blur so you can see the large spaces between animation frames clearly.

The animations are the same as they were before, they just adjusted the speed of them, things like vaulting and sliding are now quicker presumably so that there's less input lag and animation priority than before.

Why is this a rumor if screenshots are proof? Or someone counted pixel wrong.
I'm not sure how accurate Gamingbolt is when it comes to pixel counting. Someone else could verify the screens.

This is good news, I am happy now. Thought the Alpha ran fine, though I still don't know what platform I am going to buy this for.

Some people say its by default On. But wasnt the case with me. Maybe it remembered the settings from the alpha from me?

I have verified the areas they were counting, and some other areas on those screens too, and it certainly does look like it's native 1080p.

Canada eh
Wow I'm surprised, I played the alpha and I legit thought it was running (pretty chopping I'll add) at 720p but maybe it's improved since then

What if 1080p 30 fps xbox one
900p 60 fps ps4?

would there still be a shit storm?

Not happening. It's more likely that the PS4 version will be a closer match to the PC version in terms of lighting and detail. That's one area where the Xbox version looks pretty flat.

But then again this is Ubisoft, who have proven multiple times that they really don't give a shit about utilizing the PS4's extra power.

there is no way this game is 1080p on xbox. I have just been playing it for an hour. It looks straight up 720p to me. If it is 1080p it just goes to show how little resolution really affects the whole image. I think this game looks ruff on xbox. I just cant believe it is 1080p :/

I wouldnt be so sure, the ps4 is only marginally more powerful than the xbox one, i own both and there isnt a huge visual difference that people like to talk up. They are likely going to be close visually with the pc outpacing both of them significantly

I know what you are saying but that was only 1.5 months ago and if my estimation was correct that means it went from 720p to 1080p in that time which is still extremely surprising.
Developers don't just take a snapshot and release a build in a day. It was probably branched from their main development branch a month or a few before and had tests and fixes specifically getting it ready for early playtime.

That's without stating that optimisation is the last thing developers do.

Try adjusting settings like the CA and sharpening. There's also a pretty massive difference between 720p and 1080p,

Resolution affects image quality tremendously on fixed pixel displays. I suspect the game might be using dynamic resolution if it looks that bad at times.

The alpha and even this beta aren't the builds that they have at the studio.

It's not matter of marginal power. Ps4 has a better hardware fit for 1080p. Xbone has not even the number of ROP necessary in the GPU. Sure ES RAM can help but give other bottleneck in the bandwith.

On the one hand, Massive said they'd take advantage of each system's power, so if XBO is 1080p/30, PS4 should have some sort of enhancements that's more than just stable fps if they follow their word.
On the other hand, this sort of discrepancy where lighting or other significant assets were better on PS4 is unprecedented; pretty much every game has had asset parity but resolution was different. Until now, maybe.

Don't take the bait. ;)

I feel like im in bizarro world. Played the beta last night for about an hour and was floored by how good it looks. Now I read on here that it looks "rough"?
