"Zombie Studios' is bringing their free to play first person shooter Blacklight: Retribution to the PlayStation 4 and GamingBolt recently had a chance to chat with studio director Jared Gerritzen on the game's resolution and frames per rate."
If its not 1080p 60fps then its not Next Gen!
Says who? Im sure this game will look leaps and bounds better than if it was on current gen. Battlefield 4 also, 900p, 60fps 64 players is definitely next gen compared to sub 30fps with 24 players and 720p on current gen consoles. It doesn't HAVE to be 1080p 60fps to be next gen, but it definitely is a nice luxury to have. @DeadRabbits (nice Gangs Of New York username reference btw) Well that's fine, but maybe you should put "in my opinion" when you type things like that.
Just my opinion, as a connoisseur of fine games I demand graphical excellence!
plus super low textures on current gen
@DeadRabbits (nice Gangs Of New York username reference btw) A band of Gaelic warriors ;)
I prefer 1080p with the highest possible setting at stable (beyond) 30fps. If they can reach 60, bonus. But if not, that's still fine as long as the visuals are not compromised, it does not screen tear and never dips (even close) to 30fps (means it runs with head room above). I can't help but think 60fps isn't necessary if it looks ugly (example BF4....ugh).
Says the rational gamer! 4K is already rolling and you don't care about 1080p? PC does that 5 years ago and you don't care about 60FPS? then you should be the one stating "that's my opinion" off course 1080p and 60 FPS are next-gen! and if you don't care about it stick with current gen, and don't comment here because this site is for hard-core gamers.
I've already played a next gen game. It was called The Last of Us.
Let me get this straight. A game on PC at it's max settings is what you're getting on the PS4. Cool.
@ DeadRabbits You forgot to sign in with your other account before commenting on your own post. :D
@ JoSneak That is NOT the standard. Something like 4k @ 120fps is something the average PC gamer won't have for a few years. High-end rigs are still the minority. Most PC fans on the web boast about those specs, but they themselves are unable to achieve them. And just because you were able to play old games in 1080p @ 60fps doesn't automatically make them next-gen either.
For the last 3 years. I have been gaming at 1080p 60fps on my PC. When I looked at the creative aspect of games, that is t truly defines next gen in my opinion. I would have hoped in the last 7 years Microsoft and Sony would have made this a standard, but to keep cost down in an ever inflating world, some aspects cannot be achieved unless they wanted to add assets like dedicated pcie bus for graphics and more expensive ram (512bit). I like what developers are trying to do to compensate for the subtle differences. Its not all about 1080, but what one does with the fidelity of content. I think within this digital instant age, we are becoming more spoiled on ever increasing technology. Gamers want what's new quicker than in the past. We look at YouTube videos where people are uploading 1080p - 4k games on PC and gamers are paying attention. The truly next gen aspects come from creativity. And we see that with games like the last of us, killzone, and dare I say it nba2k14. I look at the fact that most LCD TVs sold, cheap or expensive is native 1080p. With that becoming the norm like sdtv was for so long, it makes us more see 1080p as that defining resoultuion. As time goes on, I am confident that devs will hit 1080p more often. The hurdle is how do devs combat this in the near future as technology upgrades every year. I can see mobile gaming reaching Xbox 1 quality by 2015(IMO). At that point, what do we say then? Will hardware turn around happen more frequently. Does it make steam box relevant? Discuss n4g
I don't want to break anyones bubble but this game is NOT a very intensive game to start with. I was running 120fps solid even back when I had my 680.
@out1awed you do know that the 680 is a high end card, right?
@badz If we are talking almost two years ago, then sure. You do know the 770 replaced it right? While it's still based on the gk104 architecture that the 680 is, the 770 is still technically better in every way. Now with that in mind take a look at the 770 pricing. It's $330. Granted that isn't cheap but it's defiantly NOT high end card pricing. Again that's not even for the 680 but for the card that is technically better. Not to mention I said 120fps simply because that's because it was capped at my monitors refresh rate. It was probably capable of much more. With that in mind, I would hope even the X1 would be able to achieve a "high" fps like the article hints with max settings at 1080p.
Why should he put "in my opinion"? It's obvious it is. Everything everybody say is their opinion. Asking to put "in my opinion" everytime is realy silly. Oh, I'm sorry... Asking to put "in my opinion" everytime is realy silly, in my opinion.
Please stop with that. Its quite annoying.
That's good then because PS4 is capable of it. Xbone apparently is not.
How is the XB1 not capable of 1080p? You stupid mf Forza is 1080p even wii u can do 1080p
Oh right, I forgot. Xbone IS capable of 1080p @ 60fps IF the game has low-end spectrum current-gen graphics, effects, physics, AI, etc. There, sorry. Didn't mean to upset you sir. Edit: Oh, except for CoD apparently. That still has to run native 720p on Xbone despite it's lack of next-gen anything lol.
lol Funny thing is that all CoDs are using the same engine with a few modifications every time so the ESRAM must be a big bottleneck than last gen if it can't run it at 1080p native easily...especially since the game looks similar to this gen's graphics. Even games that maxes out the PS3's graphics looks better than CoD: Ghosts next gen, so there shouldn't be a reason why it's not running at native 1080p with 60fps. Working on the PS4 is as easy as creating games for the PC while the Xbox One holds a bottleneck that will hamper growth in the coming years. But with the PS4's ease of porting games from PC, it's not going to be something that will hurt the PS4's power just like the 360 held back the PS3 because the PS3 was complex to work with though more powerful graphically.
THE PS3 MANAGED TO NOT DO SHIT ITS FIRST YEAR BUT IT SEEMED TO DO PRETTY WELL AFTERWARDS... STOP BEING A FANBOY. CONSOLE ISNT EVEN OUT YET , DEVELOPERS NEED TO GET THE HANG OF THE CONSOLE.
900p/60 or 1080p/30 is still really good and a lot better than what we have had before, though I would prefer all games to be native 1080p/60
There is an in-between...I'm thinking, [email protected] or [email protected] I'd go with the 1080 (as long as they manage to not introduce tearing).
@Ju 40-50 fps can't happen on consoles since the fps needs to be either divisible by 24 or 30 with most TVs. A stable 30 would be better, otherwise it wouldn't look smooth
No, has nothing to do with consoles. Flat screens use the same tech as TVs in the sense they have fixed refresh frequencies. But it doesn't even matter. The vsync is a legacy carried over from tubes. So, if a PC game runs "unlocked" so can consoles - since they share the pretty much same GPU tech with the next generation. How they sync this up with the TV I actually don't really know. I'd have to read into this. But the fact is, that KZ:SF is unlocked and does not screen tear. My best guess is, a smart tipple buffer and intelligent synched switching of buffers will most likely push beyond 30fps and not tear at all. These "inconsistencies" might be a bit more pronounced on PCs due to latency issues cause by the OS (and running aps). But sure isn't a problem for consoles (with a low latency OS).
Highest FPS targeted ? Does that mean 60fps or 120fps hmmmmmmm only time will tell PS4 is a Beast of a Machine.
If people settle for sub 1080p 60fps then that is what will be dished out by lazy Devs! PS4 owners demand satisfaction! I demand SATISFACTION!
It means 1080 and probably 30fps baseline with trying to reach 60 if possible. Like other games have already established.
its so beast first party arcade racing game "driveclub" can't do 1080p and 60fps ...lol
This game is nothing to be excited about it's not even fun on PC.
What's wrong with it? What makes it boring/"not fun"?
@FamilyGuy Like basically every F2P game it suffers from the whole buy to win philosophy. Also it's extremely generic.
You really shouldn't buy bf4 for ps4. KZ @30 just isn't next gen either.
Well I guess technically, all consoles are doing is almost bridging the gap between PCs. 1080p/60FPS is very much this gen as it has been achieved on PC for years now.
oh killzone is 30fps now is it ? cos last i heard yesterday it wasnt lol nice try tho corndog.
@MRMagoo123: YES FACT Shadowfall is 1080p 30fps SP and 1080p 60fps MP.....However that is something Microsoft can't even accomplish on anything except a racing game.....I'd rather have games run at 1080p 30fps than 720p
@horndog Then you definitely do not want to buy this on X1 and KZ's sp mode runs at above 30fps, even hitting 60fps, while its mp is 60fps (unless like 24 guys all blow up their grenades at the same time, then it'll drop some). Now go troll somewhere else fanboy.
@Deadpoolio, SP is unlocked can reach 60FPS. http://n4g.com/news/1384077...
Is this game free to play?
@mewhy32 You didn't bother to read the article did you?
You are dead wrong, sir.
Man, my PS4 is gonna be constantly downloading for days with all these F2P and PS+ titles coming at launch.
Dont worry now you can downlaod while you play :D
Has anyone actually played this game? I guarantee you this game is nothing special.
Blacklight isnt anything to brag about. like bragging to your neighbor your dog's turd is biggest then his dog's
I agree with DeadRabbits I want all my games to be standard 1080p 60fps for the next gen.
Tisk tisk tisk...
Why am I not surprised! Good info.
Good news that developers are spending quality time on Free to play game. Makes me real excited that we are going to not have to buy games just to get that amazing next gen quality feel from a game.
How is this game on PC and what is it about. Right now the main F2P game I'm looking forward to on PS4 is WarFrame
@ Rainstorm81 That WarFrame trailer is insane isn't it. I've already 'purchased' it on the PSN. Can't wait to try it out.
Isn't Warframe a free game or did I get something wrong?
You can preorder it so it instantly downloads on your PS4 once you get it (without you needing to do anything).
Im looking forward to war thunder as well.
This game is pretty fun, takes some time to get used to, but it's very skill-based. Kind of like CoD 4.
Warframe is friggin awesome. I've been playing it on the PC for a few months now. You're going to love it ;)
^This. Warframe is damn cool. And the word really is cool.
WarFrame is my second download first will be warthunder
Im ready for warfame ps4 11/15/13
Does anyone know if WarFrame will have couch co op?
It is high paced like Call of Duty but a lot more tactical in its approach and with punchier gunplay. Has a great mechanic where you can see all the other players that are nearby to you but you are entirely defenseless whilst using it. And in the FPS genre is unmatched in it customisation. It also has fantastic map design and interesting locations. I really like it. It is pretty as well.
I've Played this game on PC and it's fantastic. Definitely a must have if you're getting a PS4.
Planetside 2, Black Light Retribution and WarFrame all FTP on the PSN. Yep Definitely need a bigger hard drive.
I just wish planetside 2 was day 1 (itll come before the end of the year), but I want it now!!! I love that game so much!
Looking forward in playing this game.....
So it WILL be there at launch?!? I thought it wouldn't make the launch. This is great news!
