The Order: 1886 Will Have 4x AA, Undecided between 1920x800 and 1920x1080; No Multiplayer Expained

Ready at Dawn founder Andrea Pessino explained today that the Massively anticipated The Order: 1886 will run with 4x Antialiasing, but the developer still hasn’t decided on the final resolution. He also explained why the game won't have a multiplayer feature. (PS4, The Order: 1886)

Update Updated with further relevant information.

Im not really sure why they couldnt just target both 1080 and MSAA here. Isnt there enough power? Can someone shed some light on this?

Edit: Someone thats not a troll.

4x MSAA is a pretty beefy option in terms of performance, considering the specs of a PS4 compared to a PC, it's at least a 10 fps loss at 1080p compared to 2x

Wow, i don't know the res wasn't set in stone yet. I would much prefer fullscreen 1080p with less AA (i think i might be in the minority there), i always crop movies and TV shows to full screen to get rid of black bars. But 1920x800 with 4xAA would result in a ridiculously crisp image.

"better to do one thing well than a whole bunch half-assed. : ) We are trying to make a SP experience you will enjoy."

Awesome.

@I Am Batman

My bad, i don't crop it i press A on my keyboard, with VLC media player the A key changes the aspect ratio without cutting parts of the image off, that happens if you press the C key and crop the image. I should have clarified. I tested it by looking at a certain thing near the edge of the screen, when i pressed C to crop the image the thing disappeared off the screen but when i pressed A it was still there, but the image was fullscreen.

@Lukas:

"i always crop movies and TV shows to full screen to get rid of black bars."

I hate when people do this. You're not only getting rid of the black bars but also of a part of the picture (which results in a worse resolution upscaled to full screen). I never understood why people hate the black bars so much honestly. I don't even see them.

I suspect they're waiting to see how people react to the reveal before determining if it should be 1080 or 800. If positive or no one really cares or says anything it stays 800, if people don't like it it's 1080 probably FXAA or whatever Sony's been using (basically MSAA + FXAA hybrid).

"Not set in stone yet, but we do run 4xMSAA which looks spectacular! x800 with AA looks MUCH better than x1080 without : )"

I'll take that better looking version then please, thanks.

I hope they don't cave in to the 1920x1080 demand and lose part of their vision of making it feel more like a film.
It'd be cool if any console game gave us resolution, AA and framerate options, that's the only way everyone could be pleased. I wonder if any devs will go that route this gen?
I_am_Batman  +   321d ago
@Lukas: Well you either cut part of the picture off or you distort it when you get from black bars to fullscreen. I personally prefer to leave any media in it's source ratio to get the best quality possible.

@ABizzel1 & Angels3785: I'd actually prefer the 2.4:1 ratio for this specific game. I like the idea of having a cinematic ratio on a story driven single player game like the Order: 1886.

You change the aspect ratio?
God, that's even worse than cropping. I hate when some people do that on their tv's and they aren't even aware of it. The 4:3 picture stretch to a 16:9 is the main culprit. I'd rather have the side bars, you only notice them for a minute where as a stretched.picture annoys me the whole time.

4x MSAA is pretty impressive. It takes a fair amount of grunt.
Oh_Yeah  +   321d ago
Screw the higher taxing aa. It barley makes a difference, atleast to my eyes when playing on pc and in some cases that higher taxing aa makes the whole overall picture softer, which degrades clarity. It's NEVER worth it to go with higher performing aa to drop Frames per second, fps should be top priority, 60 fps over 30 is a pretty big difference and is noticeable, both within graphics and gameplay.

Running 4xMSAA takes a much larger performance hit than 10fps. check out these benchmarks and look for the HD 7850, which due to it's higher clock speed than the PS4s GPU, it's a perfect performance match.

1920x1200 ultra quality 4xMSAA - 26fps

http://kotaku.com/5965973/f...

4xMSAA or 4x Multisample anti-aliasing is a technique where the image is rendered 4 times larger than your display resolution, then downsampled to fit your display. so if you want to display @ 1080p, your gpu internally renders the scene at 4k resolution, then reduces it down to 1080p. this greatly increases image quality, reduces jagged edges, and doesn't blur the image like FXAA.

the downside is that MSAA takes a TON of processing power to accomplish.
Oldman100  +   321d ago
If they say that 1080p no AA uses up less resources than 800p 4xMSAA, then why don't they just go 1080p with a much cheaper post process AA solution like SMAA or FXAA? Image quality and coverage is quite good even though the latter is known to cause a bit of blurring. Take a look at COD Ghosts on PS4 as an example.
memots  +   321d ago | Well said
This whole 1080p / 30/60 fps is getting way outplay.

I want 1080p but i do not care for 60 vs 30 fps.

98% of games from ps3/x360 gen were 30fps and no one was fn crying about it all over the web. All of as sudden this is a must?

Its like a 6 year old who just learned a new word and keeps repeating it out of context. Well a bunch of kids just learned the difference between 30 and 60 and still don't understand the fundamental difference or need for it and still cry about it.

Seriously the last of us / journey , Halo all did not need more than 30 fps . you think i will write off Halo or possibly Tlou2 because they are 30fps ? Hell no and i wish people would stop acting like they suddenly become lesser game because of it.

This whole topic is starting to really piss me off.

True 4xMSAA is quite expensive, but last gen lots of PS3 game were getting very good AA results using FXAA( http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... and variant of that algorithm. It is less expensive than 4xMSAA and sometimes give better results. So wonder why they didn't go with that.

if they do 1080p then im not sure that they need the 4x msaa. If the 4xmsaa is keeping us from getting 1080p 60fps then I say tone that down to maybe 2x or even go with FXAA. However, I'm sure that it's going to look and be amazing when it releases no matter which way it goes. Being able to push the PS4 to it's limits without having to worry about parity for lesser platforms really lets the devs turn it up.
PLASTICA-MAN  +   320d ago
Or they simply could make us choose between the full screen 1920 x 1080 option and the 1920 x 800 option with black bars since they output yhe sale pixel density. Silent Hill games and Left4dead games makes us choose to either play with or remove the grainy movie filter (which I hate btw). I think thi is the best solution and they can do it , Guerilla Games updated Shadow Fall with the option to lock the game at 30 FPS and you are free to choose whatver you like. Personally I prefer it to be an option and I will choose which one suits me the most (maybe play the game without bars for the first time then play it in a cinematic way with black bars in front of someone or when streaming just to show off).

It's not Full HD lol. 1920x1080 (1080p) is full HD. 1920x800 is a black box frame upper and lower like some movies you watch in a 16:9 format. It's more close to 900p which is 1600x900 as far as quality goes. I think they need to stick with 1080p with 2xMSAA would be plenty! Forza 5 runs native 1080p with No MSAA and you can tell a little when looking at edges from a distance so I think 2x would be suitable without loosing more than 10fps.
imt558  +   321d ago
@GUTZnPAPERCUTZ

I will copy/paste from other topic :

Let me explain to you,( and for others ( refers to Xboners with butthurts ) ).

Game is IN FULL HD, but in 2.40 : 1 ratio. So, there is NO UPSCALE, field of view IS WIDER than u 16 : 9 ratio, pixel density is 1 : 1. Black bars ARE THE PART of 1080p, but the bars are inactive pixels vertical, but the image GOES WIDER in horizontal.

Or, in that case, if you don't mind : 1920x800>>>>>&a mp;g t;1600x900

But check this ( and others ) :

http://upload.wikimedia.org...
starchild  +   321d ago
Of course it requires no upscaling, there are black bars covering the rest of the screen. But that still doesn't change the fact that it is actually rendering fewer pixels.
rainslacker  +   321d ago
They did this in Beyond: Two Souls and I didn't even notice until near the end. Might depend on the TV though, as mine can have really black blacks for the "bars".

It would be more panoramic, and isn't related to the whole resolution debates that have been going on to date between the consoles. The actual picture that is displayed would be in full HD, there would just have less of that picture to display, similar to when watching a movie from Blu-Ray.

RaD originally wanted the game to be a cinematic experience (i.e.: QD games but with much more shooting and more general gameplay), thus they wanted a cinematic display by having a 21x9 resolution of 1920x800, but too many people couldn't appreciate their artistic vision, so now they're indecisive ATM.

Edsword  +   321d ago
I just think that for gaming, the more screen area the better. It would be cool if they would just give the option, then the gamer can decide. I know too much choice is a slippery slope, but just say to gamers, this is how we envisioned it, but if you prefer full 1080p, here's an option for that. If the 280 additional lines impact performance too much, then they can just change the type of AA being used. So do you prefer better AA and a more cinematic approach or slightly worse AA but 1080p. Either way the AA needed shouldn't be much as the game would still render I your TVs native res.
webeblazing  +   321d ago
what console gamers dont like options. havent you notice them saying it and bashing gamers in all the pc articles. they say they just want to play the games. when you have ton of fanboys speaking non sense just to look bigger publishers will continue limit your options.
rainslacker  +   321d ago
From my experience from games and movies that do this, it isn't noticeable as you're actually playing or watching. They just kind of blend into the background. However, I do know there are people that obsess over the black bars.

The whole art direction and framing would be made to fit into the given space, so there is no real hit to game play.

In general, for games I prefer full screen, but it's not the end of the world.
Cryptcuzz  +   321d ago
It is there first game on the PS4.
As devs get more familiarized with development on the PS4, game engine improves, more time, better drivers, etc. I believe they would be able to do just that and more.

Just look at how development for every system that's ever been released so far, including PC. A devs first game, no matter how impressive at the time, usually looks and plays better then the one they made before.

So with a talented dev like Ready at Dawn able to produce something so visually impressive months after PS4 has been released, imagine their 2nd and third game on the PS4 two to three years from now.

I can't wait for more info to be revealed and the gameplay trailer for this game later on this month.

Cheers.
GUTZnPAPERCUTZ  +   321d ago
MSAA is for resolution AA, the higher the resolution native, the less MSAA you need since evything appears more smooth where a 720p or 900p native image buffer would need more MSAA like 4X for 720p or 2x for 900p, etc. The PS4 is powerful, but It's not a High End Gaming PC, just a little more powerful than Xbox One to display the same graphics as X1 mostly, but at a higher native res and frame rate.
Edsword  +   321d ago
Since the game is 1920x900 though, it is still at the native 1080 resolution except without 280 lines on screen. So the AA would have the same effect on the imagine no matter what they decide if they keep 4 MSAA.
windblowsagain  +   321d ago
More or less twice the power of x1.

Gigapixel throughput

xboxone 13.1
PS4 25.6

For reference,

PS3, 360. Both 4.4. But PS3 offloaded graphical tasks to cell, so GPU could produce finer visuals. Uncharted 2,3,TLOU, GOW. Nothing on 360 comes close.
Edsword  +   321d ago
Whoa, why the disagrees? If the image is 1920x900 it is still 1:1 with a 1080p display, it's just cutting out some of the image. So 4x MSAA would have the same effect on the image if it is 1920x900 or 1920x1080. I'm not sure if I was just misunderstood or if people are disagreeing with facts.

No, actually the PS4's GPU has 18 compute units (1152 shaders), while the HD 7950 has 28 compute units (1792 Stream Processors). The PS4's GPU is also clocked lower at 800MHz.

The HD 7950 has 2.87 TFLOPS of performance, while the PS4's GPU has 1.84 TFLOPS.

The PS4's GPU has 176GB/s of memory bandwidth vs the 240GB/s of memory bandwidth the HD 7950 has.

The HD 7950 is a lot more powerful than the PS4's GPU.

The PS4's GPU and XB1's GPU are actually closer in performance than the PS4's GPU is to the HD 7950.

The Xbox One GPU has 12 compute units (768 shader processors), while the PS4 has 18 CUs (1152 shaders) and the HD 7950 has 28 compute units (1792 Stream Processors).

This should kind of help put things in perspective.

Personally, I don't like anti-aliasing unless the resolution is low. I like jaggies IF the resolution is crisp and sharp. I think full 1080p is the better option. The letterbox means less to see and the UI taking up more of the main scene.
whybag  +   321d ago
Like jaggies? Can't tell if serious or...
sinspirit  +   321d ago
@whybag

Read. IF the resolution is sharp. If it's low resolution it obviously looks terrible. Anti-aliasing is meant for lower resolutions. Higher resolutions it has far less of a noticeable difference. The higher the resolution the lower the difference AA makes. If my resolution is already high enough for a smooth image then there is little point, in my opinion, for anti-aliasing.

Furthermore, I started the message off with "Personally", inferring it was my personal opinion and I spoke of why that is and why I would rather have 1920x1080 over 1920x800. There is less on screen, obviously, but that also means the UI would be less conveniently placed when with 1080p it would be at the direct bottom of the screen and not just at the bottom of the displayed image with a black bar underneath. It's not like the game would be ruined at all by this. It is simply a preference for me.

@Eonjay: Sony's. Normally the release of trailers/screenshots/whatever is always a decision of Sony's marketing division. The single developers have little or no input on when's the right time.

In this case Sony imposed an embargo on the info til the 18th to allow all journalists to prepare their content in time, and to give time to American journalists to see it as well (they will on the 10th), and you can be pretty sure there won't be more willing leaks.

O no a PS4 game that isn't 1080 push it back that's all they care about. I don't care if its 720 30 just give me more destructible stuff.

I would rather they leave it as they intended from the get go. We all watch movies with the black bars and they really are not noticeable. Everything I have heard about the game makes it sound like an amazing artistic project. Follow your first mind and do not be pressured by the masses.

We will all see in two weeks time, people are saying this is the best looking next gen game and has physics that have never been attempted before on this scale and people are complaining about an aspect ratio.

There is a lot being overlooked in this game and it is sad that a game where everything is rendered with soft body physics is being overshadowed by an aspect ratio. Even at that aspect ratio it is still rendered in native full 1080p I really do not get the complaint.

Judging from his tweets, you have two options.

1920x800, (liquid [ROFL]) 30fps, 4x MSAA with black letter boxes on top and bottom for that "cinematic" feel

OR

1920x1080, 30fps, no AA

Pretty much, because the game is physics heavy, you can't have both. As a matter of fact, it sounds like if they go full HD with NO BLACK BARS, they can't have any AA at all.

Say what you want about this being a stylistic choice, and 1920x800 still being FULL HD, but if they remove the black bars, the AA goes too.

Those black borders that they've got around the game? They contain a whopping 500K+ pixels. That's why they can afford the MSAA on top of the physics they're running. This is a technical trade off, people, and a lot of folk in here seem to be blinding themselves to it.

Well, I would too if I've been telling myself that my console is a supercomputer. Why can't we just get The Order: 1886 in 1920x1080, no black bars, 60fps, and 4x MSAA? The PS4 is surely strong enough. Right?

(I'm buying The Order: 1886 day one, take that as you will)

thank you this proves that it dont render the effect and process in 1080p like people trying to say. it will be in 1080p with black bars but the difference in the resolution they are not rendering. which you better off saying its not 1080p. ps fanboys are doing so much damage control its not even funny. they downplay everything thats not on ps but when a game come out that contradicts what they said before they act like the never said negative things about it.

its easy to see that by doing this they are not rendering the same as if it was 1080p. is not upscaled to full 1080p. and by it processing less pixels its less demanding.

look above and in the other article. they saying a game thats native 1080p = 1080x800. less pixels less work the system have to render.

glad to see another ps fan that not blind and not worshipping a company

Well the game is most likely going to be in 30 FPS, and thats fine because this isn't an online or racing game. I really don't like the black horizontal bars. They are distracting in games, but not in movies. Don't know why, but thats just the way it is for my eyes. Strangely, the bars on the side when playing PS1 games on the PS3 don't bother me because I know they absolutely have to be there considering their age.

Disappointing. I wonder if being at x800 with 4xAA has alot to do with the advanced Physics and Destuctible enviro engines this game has. These were discussed in great detail last year in the GI cover article about the game. Since they are locked at 30fps that has to be the reason or their engine isn't efficient, because they should be able to have AA at 1080 running at 30fps.

Anyone here use FXAA on a large display at a reasonable close distance? It does the job perfectly fine on my 21in monitor. Usually higher res means less jaggies (of course depending on the distance) so 4xMSAA if demanding why use it? From my experience on PC I would much prefer 1080p and FXAA instead of lowering the res for 4xMSAA.

Just like I thought, they didn't have enough resources to make a multiplayer on par with the campaign, so they decided not to do it at all. Credit to them for making this admirable decision; the same could not be said for games with multiplayer that has quality nowhere near that of its sp.

On the other hand, Sony may have tons of faith in this title but apparently not enough to provide them enough resources to make both awesome campaign and multiplayer. This may seem like a reasonable business decision for keeping their investment risk at a reasonable level unless they don't have any other AAA multiplayer games releasing this year given now that PSN is required for online play.

They said it would be next-gen.. yet there's still problem.. I thought PS4 was suppose to be 1080p 60fps but thats not the case yet
koston3647  +   321d ago
Letterbox plz,

Devs originally saw Letterbox in their artistic vision
So either apply for a job at Ready at Dawn and change this or....
get over it

.....besides, watching the widescreen format of LOTR was way more cinematic than the full screen versions: agree disagree?

PS4 already limiting devs on how game look and play. So little to be desired i just hope consoles die and a single open platform take over. Games would cost less, dev would make games for a bigger audience and hardware would be flexible, there is literally no reason for closed platform like console anymore.

I'm hoping for 800p. Should be interesting.

They are probably going the test if it impacts the gameplay. And we will probably ignore the black bars after a couple of minutes.

This game us getting so much posts, I'm getting tired of it!
quaneylfc  +   321d ago
This is what ryse got ripped for?

Its a good thing, the higher the aa the better. I hope its 800p for the atmospheric look!

I think this game looks amazing and I don't really care about the final resolution. Of course I want the best resolution I can get, but at the end of the day it's the gameplay that matters most.
sauddt  +   321d ago
Why is it 4X AA? Honeztly 2X AA is enough because after that it is not noticeable, in my opinion they should make it 2X AA and increase the FPS more
sAVAge_bEaST  +   321d ago
How about an option,,, if none, then 1080p please. (I know the effeckts will be mind boggling though. Can't wait till it drops .)

Why can't they let us choose via game options whether we want 4xAA at 1920x800 or no AA at 1920x1080? May not seem that 280 lines would make much difference, but when a TV isn't displaying its native resolution, it never looks right.

Because it's not a PC game, the specs have to be specific for all gamers.

Damn consoles not being PCs! Seriously though, the greatness of PC is customization.

since it is a single player game they can easily maximize ps4. i think they are not capable of making a MP game these time. maybe the sequel
