Minecraft’s Xbox One, PS4 editions confirmed to run in 1080p at 60 fps

Microsoft Studios’ Roger Carpenter took some time earlier this week to answer a few questions about 4J Studios’ upcoming Xbox One edition of Minecraft. Carpenter, who serves as the lead producer on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the sandbox creation title, confirmed the upcoming new-gen ports of Minecraft will support native 1080p resolution on both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of the game.

Offering more insight into the visual capabilities of new editions of Minecraft that are currently in development, Carpenter also announced that the game will run at a full 60 frames per second on Xbox One. This will be coupled with the new version’s previously announced increased draw distances to make for a slightly improved visual experience than what can be found on last-gen consoles.

Well i should hope so lol.

And this - "minecraft’s upcoming new-gen editions will also feature increased world sizes that are said support map seeds up to 36 times larger than what can currently be found on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3." Oh god yes! Just give me a release date already!

I left minecraft behind when I started playing Landmark and never looked back.

Can't wait for it to finally release.

lol the X1 is in real big trouble if it can't get a early confirmation that it's 1080p and 60 frames.

No joke... this game should have no issue running that well on the new hardware, even with the bigger worlds.

On a side note, I enjoyed Minecrack, then I discovered Terraria... it's like a 2D Minecraft + Dark Souls... I haven't been back to Minecraft since. I may check it out on the new console though.

Who cares. This game is pixeled out. Still an awesome game. Opens the mind, massive creativity.

The question we should be making is how about the chunks. That's the Minecraft's killing point xD Sweet Sweet Memory

One of my most anticipated games of the year. I sold my 360 not long ago and I had to delete my whole world. My and the gf out in countless hrs just building together.

Looking forward to restarting

I pity you. Minecraft is not that serious.

ScottyHoss1563d ago

But it's the thought that counts. I feel you man, losing that would suck, but hey, there will be new worlds (36 times bigger) for you to explore with your girl!

OT: DinGOHOME, if it's not that serious why are you commenting?
