Wolfenstein: The New Order – Will Have “Minimal Visual Disparity” Across All Platforms

OnlySP: New details on Wolfenstein: The New Order continue to be revealed by way of the Reddit AMA currently going on.

The story is too old to be commented.

Guess they didn't focus on pushing the hardware inside PS4 then.

PockyKing1200d ago

Don't know about that, the game looks really good and will be running at 1080p/60 fps across all the platforms. Every multiplatform game should try its hardest to have that similar of performance across all platforms, well consoles at least.

thekhurg1200d ago

No, every game should take advantage of console hardware. Graphical disparity is the lazy way out.

MidnytRain1200d ago


How is it lazy to ensure that all versions look the same?

randomass1711200d ago

@thekhurg Seems more like the safest way. A lot of games during the PS2 era looked about the same when they were multiplatform with minor performance differences between them. Nobody complained about it then and I don't see why we should complain about it now. If they manage to make the game look good AND perform excellently across all platforms, they should be applauded for treating ALL gamers fairly and not just one group for a certain console.

"No, every game should take advantage of console hardware. Graphical disparity is the lazy way out."

So the developers of Angry Birds should make the game look better on PS4 just because it has more power?

Not every game pushes consoles to their limits. Therefore, some games will look pretty much the same on Xbox One and PS4.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is not a really good looking game by any stretch of the imagination. Wolfenstein: The New Order Looks last gen with better lighting effects. I know some fanBoy are so happy to get a game in 1080p and wow 60fps . Because the game looks last gen and runs on a last gen graphics engine. Now the positive I'm very impressed by the Id tech 5 engine I don't know what it runs Wolfenstein: The New Order frame-rates or resolution . But this Id Tech engine ran rage on PS3 and 360 at 720p 60fps than very impressive . I'm not surprised that it runs 1080p 60fps on the weaker next-gen console. Hope that Id tech 6 engine will be out soon on PS4 and xbone. Because Id tech 5 was amazing to run a game like Rage at 720p 60fps.

Does that mean no disparity between last and current gen? Or even PC?

starchild1200d ago

I think that each platform should be utilized as fully as possible. Obviously there are going to be certain limits to this, depending on the developer and the game, but they should never aim for parity for "political" reasons or to be "fair".

SITH1200d ago

These fools are only butt hurt they have virtually nothing to complain about the Xbox one running on par with the ps4, for this game. They only want dfirrences so they can talk crap.

Let's just wait and see the comparisons ok?

randomass1711200d ago

I don't know why anyone would disagree. I'd like to see comparisons as well.

MasterCornholio1200d ago


Because some people are afraid that their console will get the inferior version of the game.

Regardless I think both versions (consoles) will be good.

Dirtnapstor1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

Can't link to the article at the moment...
Meaning PS4=X1 & PS3=360 or are they saying last-gen and new-gen are similar?

XBOTTOX1200d ago

you mean they didnt put all the pc fidelity into the game? dont act surprised. ps4 is no developer pc

raymantalk11200d ago

it may not be a developer pc but it sure has hell is better than the xbox1 :)

randomass1711200d ago

Or they wanted the game to look the same across all platforms.

SPARTAN31200d ago

What more do you want if the ps4 is on par with the PC.

BadlyPackedKeebab1200d ago

Or PC by the look of it. Have to admit it looks like its built on aging tech. reminds me of Dishonored, i.e. build on an engine that was build of older hardware.

Some great games coming to PC this year, what with Killing Floor 2 just announced, a new Wolfenstein, Doom beta and potentially new Valve games (L4D3?) this year.. oh man, haven't been this excited for a long time.

Why exactly did I get bubbled down for trolling when I asked a question.

Edit: @Volkama Thanks for the link, wish this site wasn't so damn awful though. Shame.

@thereapersson I wasn't aware, and I also still don't understand how it classifies as trolling.

thereapersson1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

Shnooze, that down rank makes no sense. I think it's cause you used all caps. They hate that here (and most places on the internet).

ThanatosDMC1200d ago

Shouldnt they call it Killing Floor 3 instead of 2? I hope they make it cross platform with PC and PS4.

raymantalk11200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

XBOTTOX + 4m ago
but does that mean they gimped the pc version too?

yes it does

@TheRocksStrudle you state a fact and get a trolling for it shows how this site works dont it :)
