Titanfall Has Gone Gold, Final Resolution Most Definitely Above 720p – Epic Games Dev

Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall has apparently gone gold, according to an Epic Games employee on Reddit. Considering how good the beta was, with many believing the game was already close to completion at that point, this make sense. (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

So why not just say "hay............what' s wrong with youuuuu" sorry, silly oldskool song from the UK when I was a kid

I'll try again, "hay.... it's gone gold and the final resolution isssssssssssss ......."

It's not like it's a spoiler or anything, it's not like it's going to hurt sales in anyway

Edit: Heres that song http://www.youtube.com/watc... OLDskool

At this point its not 900p, what was originally promised, its going to bring the usual critics and defenders.

Where and when was anything "originally promised"?
Naga  +   518d ago
Seriously, when was that promised? I'm searching, and the closest thing to that I can find is, "hopes for". I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here by presuming you actually have something you're basing that claim off of.

That said, you should probably come up with a source or stop calling them liars.

its 792... at least according to the Titanfall Dev yesterday on Gaf. I got downvoted when I explained that to some folks yesterday who said that 900P was promised (which it wasn't)and I was trolling. So, the issue is people for some reason are under the impression that Respawn said 900p definitely. Thats fans and detractors alike. Too much confusion going around.
u got owned  +   518d ago
there was a tweet floating around saying the game beta was running at 792p and that the final version could run at a higher resolution, but 900p was never promised.

It will bring jealous and insecure fanboys as always is the case when they don't get a game they want that a rival console gets, especially the most hyped, wanted, and written about next gen game.
Puppy_Farts  +   518d ago
@SonyROX: Your comment is so ridiculous. The only thing that rings true is when you say "most hyped". That, it certainly is. I'm sure anyone with a life is actually jealous.
SilentNegotiator  +   518d ago
"the final resolution is most def above 720p. That’s all I can say"

792p pretty much confirmed. If the game were 900p by Gold, MS/Respawn/etc would have already paraded on about it. They wouldn't need their media buddies to use vagaries like "def above 720p"

the critics yes! the defenders are just telling the critics that they just don't care. im and x1 owner and i really don't care about resolution at all. i care more about gameplay. gamers care about gameplay and gameplay only! only fanboys care about resolution. and please don't take this as me calling you a fanboy, because im not.
Godmars290  +   518d ago
Get where you're coming from, but the truth of the matter is that when the version of a PS4 multi comes in lower than XB1 the internet will just go off. The fans of today who are saying Titanfall's gameplay is all that matters especially will be gloating over graphics.

Just like what's going on with Thief and frame rate issues on the PS4. Don't know, don't care what's going on with the XB1 version, just that the game itself is reviewing at 6/10, yet frame rate issue for a particular version should be what everyone should talk about.
Ra3030  +   518d ago
Link from yesterday's misinformation....tomorrow may bring more.
headblackman  +   518d ago
yeah, but as real gamers (not resolution or frame rate whores) we should know better. and when you know better you're supposed to do better. im a real gamer and i play games (i own all consoles execpet the ps4 and that's only because i can't find one, but when i do i will buy it). not frame rates or resolutions. these are just extra perks. if it was all about resolution and frame rates, we'd all be gaming on high end pc's and consoles wouldn't have a place in the market.
darthv72  +   517d ago
Resolution doesnt bother me. I was planning on getting it for 360 (as i do not have XB1) and the game looks like fun.
Gamer1982  +   517d ago
I think its pathetic though making up resolutions like 792p (which its rumoured to be) Just so they can claim its not 720p. There will be NO difference between 792p and 720p. Not one bit.. It just shows the Xbone cannot handle a game like titanfall at anything above 720p in reality.. They squeezed in as many pixels as they could to the last pixel until it popped.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   517d ago
@eonjay.. that's what happens when Sony fanboys run the site. They throw out rumors right or wrong as if they're all 100% right.

Sony fanboys run the show on all these days. IF they say it's promised 900p, then it is no matter what a Dev really says or anyone else that really works on the game.
pupa  +   517d ago
["As for the resolution of the final build that will ship to gamers, Respawn is targeting 900p native, which will then be upscaled to 1080p by Microsoft’s console. It’s not true 1080p, but it’s close, and as the gameplay videos have shown already, the game does look really good even at 720p."]


["Heppe did also stress that while 792 is not considered a standard resolution, most other games run natively at different resolutions and are then upscaled to 1080p.

She also states that Respawn was working towards increasing the native resolution by the time the final game was released, with the target being 900p native and 60 frames per second."]


Read again "Heppe said".."She also states..."

Blame the media?

Volkama  +   518d ago
It doesn't really make much difference that it's "gone gold". In this case "gold" doesn't have to mean the game is finished at all.

It's only playable online. They can work on it until the minute it releases, because any changes they make can effectively apply to 100% of the copies they sell.
VENOMACR1227  +   518d ago
I played the BETA a ton, and not once did I go "wow, these graphics aren't that good." I tried playing BF the other day, played one game and turned it off. I'm having TitanFall withdrawal. The gameplay is so much fun and it just feels different than any other FPS available. I know it's not 1080p/60fps and sure, graphics could be slightly better, but the gameplay is what makes the game fun. 15 maps from the get go is awesome. The two maps in the BETA played extremely differently so I'm pumped to see how the other layouts will work. Some maps favor pilots, some favor Titans.
ma1asiah  +   518d ago

I'm with you on that one, I have tried playing everything from COD, Halo, BF etc and nothing comes close to how you feel when you play TF.

Withdrawals is a little bit of an understatment lol, I'm pratically on the verge of going insane waiting for TF to launch.

This is my most anticpated title so far this year
DeadGotenks  +   517d ago
What if MS and Respawn all ready knew they could easily put Titanfall at 1080p on the x1.. and this whole res situation is just amazing free advertising? Imagine if.. IF it comes out of the gate with 1080p and a smooth 60fps... how much BETTER that would make the system look? Enough to sale a couple hundred-thousands more. I own ps4 and xbox one.. I want them both to succeed for their amazing exclusives at the best possible quality they can offer.

BallsEye  +   518d ago
Higher res is welcome but I've played the beta and it did look way better than on the screens. Don't know why, but there was no jaggies (yep, my tv is calibrated well). Game looked great and most importantly played amazing. I was a die hard BF fan, now I'm loving titanfall much more.


as silly it may sound 792p is quite a bit higher res than 720p

It should be over 720p, it's not even that great looking of a game. The beta was fun, but I am not buying this game for its looks. Thankfully my PC can handle it at higher resolutions. Still waiting for a killer reason to get an XboxOne. Might be Quantum Break, unless they announce something at E3 that will come out before that.

Not complaining though, my PS4 and PC is getting enough games for quite some time. I just always want more :-).

That's what someone's been throwing around in lue of 1080p, so if its not 900p, if it not higher than whatever the beta's resolution since "they" said it would be, then that's what people are going to complain about. Say doesn't matter.

All you guys have it all wrong. I'm not going to visit N4G when the real resolution is announced. It's going to be crazy after the SDK update the XB1 is going to get in a few days. Neogaf is going to explode!

EDIT @below

Hell no!

This article left out this Epic Games Dev's history on this topic, which I have been following on Reddit.

Keep disagreeing I'm already use to it from the first CBOAT article over the Titanfall 720p downgrade. http://n4g.com/news/1462710...

Right, an SDK update is going to magically produce an extra 384 shader cores, 6 Compute Units, and make that measly 32mb of ESRAM into 6GB's.

player002  +   517d ago
clearly you know nothing cause a sdk makes coding much easier and efficient also freeing up lots of resources remember they where gunna free up 8% from kinect and 32mb of esram =6 gigs of textures through tiling which XB1 supports through direct x 11.2 get ur facts straight this game will either be 900p or 1080p
Sarcasm  +   517d ago
^Don't assume I don't know anything kid. An SDK update is definitely going to make coding a lot easier, that's still not going to magically bypass HARDWARE limitations. And do you even know what texture tiling is? That's chopping large textures into smaller bits and streaming it through the small BUS of 32mb which is then going to be bottlenecked by the slower bitrate of DDR3. You're just spouting nonsense you hear from Microsoft PR.
SliceOfTruth888  +   518d ago
ROFL at people crying about resolution sizes..I had the PC beta and the Xbone Beta. And OBVIOUSLY the PC one looked better since i can max out the settings, but not once during my time playing Xbone did i say EWWWW MY GOD i cant even look at this! All of my friends have Xbone and honestly the multiplayer experience is just easier on Xbone....the only thing people should be crying about is how did Sony let this happen....but Sony is god around here
ThatArtGuy  +   518d ago
Sony didn't do anything. EA simply sold themselves to MS, and in turn, are going to be losing a good chunk of money.
SliceOfTruth888  +   518d ago
They wont be losing anything...the servers were the issue and people can downplay it all they want and laugh about the CLouDZZZ but microsofts performance was insane for the Beta. Sony wasnt ready which lead them to go to Microsoft. Titanfall will push system sales and it will be an instant hit the second it comes out
n4rc  +   518d ago
So true..

That massive discounted server infrastructure is the sole reason.. IMO

How much do sony and ms make off 3rd party games? I'm guessing close to nothing.. But the ability to move units.. Sony isn't having issues there so why spend money they dont have to provide respawn what they needed?
Volkama  +   518d ago
N4rc, it isn't close to nothing. Platform holders take a good chunk in royalties.

It's also pretty much confirmed that MS paid a good chunk (of money and marketing) to secure Titanfall.

AND I'm happy to agree that yes, MS's servers were spot on and performed superbly for both the One and PC versions. Very refreshing after the clusterf*** that was BF4s launch, or the trainwreck that COD still offers on the PC.

@SliceOfTruth888 Oh Jesus Christ...NO the servers were not the real issue, or did you miss the part where it was explained that the original timed deal was made because Respawn and EA didn't know the final specs of the PS4, and assumed they were still using 4gb of RAM.....It has nothing to do with your god damned derpy cloud....Your one of those geniuses that thought you were paying for servers on 360 weren't ya or that the 300,000 servers are all for Xbox when in reality they're for ALL MS devices and half are probably virtual
Volkama  +   518d ago
Deadpoolio it's 300,000 servers for Live, Azure is well over a million (and growing).

They are of course virtual servers. You can't dynamically create/stop physical servers on the fly.

Respawn (or any other party) have never mentioned the PS4's supposed 4gb RAM as being any part of the reason Titanfall isn't available on the system. You realise the 360 has less, yes?

Don't accuse other people of being misguided while simultaneously spewing incorrect nonsense.

I played the beta, and all I can say is I don't care what the resolution is at this point. It was fun, and way more fun once you learn how to identify pilots over bots,. A big or small jump in resolution is not going to make the game any different. It will just give Sony fanboys something to tease about, or bragging rights to x1 fans...

Either way, I will be having fun with my game and you can count pixels while you wait for your next game to be released.

If the res ends up 792p, then Cboat's sources were probably telling the truth, things get fixed over time & it's definitely not a huge leap from the time he got his info.
If it were 900p, or 1080p, then you'd definitely know his sources were flat out wrong, but 792p is really edging it.

We'll have to wait until Digital Foundry gets their hands on it to see if buttocks will be banned or not for saying it's 720p. As much as N4G's Xbox nursery likes to chant that he's wrong all the time, he isn't. If he were, he would have been banned years ago. GAF doesn't allow their "insiders" to stick around if they don't have good track records. The hammer is looming over his head on this one.
