Sony Confirms PLANETSIDE 2 PS4 Will Be 1080P, Update Incoming

LUKE KARMALI: Sony has confirmed that PlanetSide 2 is set to run at 1080p with a "smooth" framerate on PS4, and promised hands-on time at E3.

The news comes from creative director Matt Higby, who made the comment during a PlanetSide 2 Twitch stream. He revealed the team is still optimising the MMO shooter for the new console, with bespoke UI and control mechanics all part of the process. (E3, Planetside 2, PS4)

Can't wait for this, looks great

It does, i had lots of fun playing on my friends PC, it can get so damn hectic at times.

I would have liked 60fps to be the priority over 1080p though. I would gladly have taken 720p with less effects if it meant 60fps. I don't mind 30fps for most genres, but i really, really prefer to play FPS's in 60fps.

Ah well, im sure it will still be great, and i'll download it regardless.

30fps doesn't bother me as long as it's a solid 30. This game doesn't appear to be like CoD, where the characters are like heavily armed hummingbirds on crack, making 60fps seem more necessary. My main concern is how the frame rate holds up in big battles. I'd rather a lower resolution that stays smooth when the battles get truly huge.

Heath Ledger is right, I'd prefer a stable framerate anyday of the week.
randomass171  +   571d ago
It didn't perform very well on my laptop, so I'd like to see a solid framerate on the PS4 version.
PLASTICA-MAN  +   571d ago
AND...I NEVER doubted that !
BadlyPackedKeebab  +   571d ago
I am excited however this is yet another one that seems as if its going to miss the boat. This really needed to be out in March or so. If it gets to Aug and destiny etc is around the corner it suddenly has much less impact.

For those who haven't played this, I think your going to like it a lot.

I played for Months as only the NC, haven't tried the other two, but I'm kind of attached to the NC now.

Huge Open Maps, Tons of people on, solid graphics, decent amount of guns & upgrades.

Also I NEVER bought anything or spent money in game. I earned everything and even starting out, The Normal guns they give you, are actually some of the best there are.

The game, day 1, is balanced because of that.

Wait until you guys experience an Alert that sends 400 vs 400 or something like that, you guys are going to poop yourselves with enjoyment.

So 1080p at 60fps?
The_Infected  +   571d ago
If it was 60fps they'd most likely said it straight out but instead they said "smooth" so I'm sure it's below 60fps.
killzone619  +   571d ago
i heard the game was 60fps on ps4.
BadlyPackedKeebab  +   571d ago

If there is something good about a game devs will not shutup about it. If its not there they will dodge it.

smooth = dodging it.
papashango  +   571d ago
planetside definitely would play better if they pushed for highest frame rates instead of resolution. It's a great game for those who havn't played tried it.
MysticStrummer  +   571d ago
I doubt it, more likely 30, but we'll see.
GundalfDeGrej  +   571d ago
I'm going to go ahead and guess no. I'd be pleasantly surprised if it was.
Irishguy95  +   571d ago
More than likely not, it's a 2012 PC game so it's quite demanding for 2012 tech. Who knows though they may knock the specs down for the Ps4 release

If it was 60fps it'd be a dream come true, but for such a massive game, that would be quite a feat.
esemce  +   571d ago
It's 1080p so it will be dirty thirty frames per second.
MasterCornholio  +   571d ago
Cool because some rumors said it would be 900P. Glad they managed to get 1080P with this game and I can't wait to play it.
MysticStrummer  +   571d ago
If any game would deserve a pass for a slightly lower resolution due to the scope of the world, it's this one. Cool that they got it to 1080p though. I hope the frame rate holds up well in big battles.
MasterCornholio  +   571d ago
Im ok with 900P but 720P looks like a blurry mess on my monitor.
randomass171  +   571d ago
Honestly, I would accept 720p if it means a smoother framerate. On my laptop the game was super choppy. I don't care to experience that again.
T2  +   571d ago
can someone remind me is this f2p, how is the grind for PC edition? also will it have PC crossplay? looking forward to this but didn't like DUST much, found the graphics kind of subpar
ginsunuva  +   571d ago
Grind is long. But this is the first F2P game I've seen where buying guns for a buck or two is actually worth it.

I don't think it has PC crossplay. Maybe after launch sometime.
Agent_hitman  +   571d ago
Another free to play goodies from Sony.. thanks
macethedon  +   571d ago
So not 60fps then?

If anyone knows, what is the fps on PC for this?
GarrusVakarian  +   571d ago
There is no set FPS on PC. It all depends on the persons specs. I've played it at 1080p 60fps (for most of the time, experienced dips when there was tons going on) on PC though, it's a very nice looking game.

papashango  +   571d ago
I usually hovered at 80-100fps @ 1080p back when I played.

It was smooth it was silky

ramiuk1  +   571d ago
it would be nice this gen if we had the option in settings menu

720p ans 60fps
1080p 30fps/60fps
randomass171  +   571d ago
@papashango Wow, you must have had a stellar PC. Mine is a doohickey laptop haha. The PS4 verion will hopefully remedy this for me though. :)
isthe  +   571d ago
honestly as long the game plays smoothly I`m down
ArbitorChief  +   571d ago
Should of targeted 60 FPS, IMO it's essential for FPS games, hopefully it runs slightly higher than 30 FPS.
shivvy24  +   571d ago
i reckon they should like give an option:
1) 1080p at 30fps
2) whatever rez at 60fps
ArbitorChief  +   571d ago
Yeah 900p 60 FPS would be awesome
ginsunuva  +   571d ago
It would either have to run at 30 or 60 because of monitors/TV's using the CRT standard.

Anything in between and you'd have tearing and useless frames that you'd never see.

Hence why G-Sync on PC is a huge deal now.
bub16  +   571d ago
is this game "pay to win" seeing as its free to play on pc?
ocelot07  +   571d ago
Actually no this is one of the few none pay to win games. Sure you can buy weapons with money. But even if you have a starting weapon and come up against someone with a purchased weapon does not mean he will win. I think the game is balanced pretty good. Plus I think everything can be unlocked in game instead of buying it.
TheFanboySlayer  +   571d ago
started out pay to win BUT now its good after fixes.
modesign  +   571d ago
its kill to win, kill ALOT.
Livecustoms  +   571d ago
bornsinner  +   571d ago
guessing it won't be 60fps.. if it is then expect graphics to be poor
randomass171  +   571d ago
Why would we expect that? It's an older game, so it stands to reason that they can make it look just as good if not better than the original release.
modesign  +   571d ago
the butthurt is strong in you. bornsinner.
Solid_Penguin-64  +   571d ago
Is the game hectic or are the maps big enough so that players get plenty of breathing room?
BlingBlaine  +   571d ago
All you people asking questions about planetside should visit this site. It has all the info neatly sorted for ease of reading. Just hit the HD videos tab and judge yourself.
MysticStrummer  +   571d ago
Yup, or just check YouTube. Lots of great videos, of simply gameplay or more explanatory tutorial stuff. I watched a 2+ hour video of a multi platoon coordinated assault on Indar not too long ago, but there are also very entertaining vids of 2-3 man squads tearing it up on the ground and in the air.

Is this F2P on PS4???
fenome  +   571d ago
Yes :)
TD_hastetheday  +   571d ago
I hope they don't screw this up
Moe-Gunz  +   571d ago
Probably going to release around E3
mysteryraz11  +   571d ago
fps doesnt matter, if the game runs smoothly then its great, only pc fanboys care about this crap infamous ss runs great and isnt 60fps
mochachino  +   571d ago
I see the battle for 60 FPS over 1080p (if such a tradeoff necessary), was lost to 1080p taking precedent.
Azzanation  +   570d ago
Hope its 1080p. That game is old.
