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.

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.

MysticStrummer1415d ago

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.

Stoppokingme1415d ago

Heath Ledger is right, I'd prefer a stable framerate anyday of the week.

randomass1711415d ago

It didn't perform very well on my laptop, so I'd like to see a solid framerate on the PS4 version.

BadlyPackedKeebab1415d 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.

I doubt it, more likely 30, but we'll see.

GundalfDeGrej1415d ago

I'm going to go ahead and guess no. I'd be pleasantly surprised if it was.

Irishguy951415d ago (Edited 1415d 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

randomass1711415d ago

If it was 60fps it'd be a dream come true, but for such a massive game, that would be quite a feat.

esemce1415d ago

It's 1080p so it will be dirty thirty frames per second.

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.

MysticStrummer1415d 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.

MasterCornholio1415d ago

Im ok with 900P but 720P looks like a blurry mess on my monitor.

randomass1711415d 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.

T21415d 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

ginsunuva1415d 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_hitman1415d ago

Another free to play goodies from Sony.. thanks

macethedon1415d ago

So not 60fps then?

If anyone knows, what is the fps on PC for this?

GarrusVakarian1415d ago (Edited 1415d 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.

papashango1415d ago (Edited 1415d ago )

I usually hovered at 80-100fps @ 1080p back when I played.

It was smooth it was silky

ramiuk11415d ago

it would be nice this gen if we had the option in settings menu

720p ans 60fps
1080p 30fps/60fps

randomass1711415d 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. :)
