World of Tanks on PS4 Will Run at 1080p, 60 FPS; Graphically “More Sophisticated” than PC Version

World of Tanks was announced for PS4 just a few days ago, and looks like users on Sony’s console are in for a visual treat, as Marketing Product Manager Max Chuvalov told DualShockers today at Tokyo Game Show.

So this game will run at 1080p 60fps on the PS4. Impressive.. It looks like these devs are taking advantage of the PS4's GPU compute capabilities if I'm not mistaken.

Good job to these guys for actually putting effort into taking advantage of the PS4's hardware capabilities instead of being lazy and aiming for parity by locking it at the same framerate as other platforms.

Glad to see that no compromises have been made for the PS4 version in order to run at 60fps, unlike the case of the direct competitor where the fps was dropped to 30fps in order to achieve 1080p.

UkrainianWarrior1126d ago

Your trolling is yawn-inducing.

@gfk342

Lol that's true but you're probably going to get marked for trolling with that comment even though you're not really trolling and just speaking the truth on the matter. As you can see, people like UkrainianWarrior are very sensitive..

Kiwi661126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that there is crossplay between xbox 360 & xbox one as #GenuineGamer pointed out below to have gameplay parity with the 360

APexGamer451126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

@Kiwi66

Uhh. Cross play have nothing to do with X1 running lower graphics or lower frame rate...

Thats like saying PC players cannot play against people with different fps or graphics settings...

Nice try though.

zidane13411126d ago

@Apex actually it's very possible. It happens all the time.

lvl_headed_gmr1126d ago

It would appear the PS4 version is also running at 30fps and without crossplay. Maybe the devs actually are fully utilizing the console. The XB1 version is using 4k assets....I wonder if the PS4 version will be as well.....

Sonital1123d ago

Looks like PS4 has had to "compromise" as well!

"Q: What is the target Resolution and Frame rate? 1080p 60fps or 30fps?
A: 1080p 30fps. While the PS4 has a bit more headroom, it's not that drastic."

From the devs themselves. It's 30fps on both. Both X1 and PS4 are weak. Deal with it.

Army_of_Darkness1125d ago

"Chuvalov confirmed that the PS4 version of the game will run at 1080p, 60 frames per second"

I read the article and this is what I got and quoted, so where did you get yours from??

interesting. I'm sure PC is fully capable of matching PS4's specs. But the fact that the PS4 can run things almost as good as a high end PC (at least for most games) is impressive in itself.

Abriael1126d ago

What he says is not that the PC can't match the PS4 specs, but that implementing graphics update on PC is more difficult, because they have to work on them on a massive range of machine, and they need to be tested and tweaked for all these machines.

S2Killinit1126d ago

I realize that. I sort of meant the same thing. I wasn't saying the PC can't do what PS4 can.

shloobmm31126d ago

Yeah the x1 version has a lot of thing that make it graphically superior to pc version. Its nice to see ps4 improve on that.

Godmars2901126d ago

Still not going to be taken very well by PC fans.

Irishguy951126d ago

Meh, I can live with that, the game was release in 2010-2011 for PC. I mean, a graphics update...or 4 years of playtime...

shloobmm31126d ago

Obviously the disagrees aren from people who havent played the two versions. Only benefit pc has is high res and frame rate. X1 version has much better textures on landscape and tanks than pc and also the pc version doesnt have all of the swaying grass and wheat fields the x1 version has.

starchild1126d ago

It's not like this is a graphically outstanding game anyway. It's mediocre in the visuals department and has been out on the PC for years. It's not surprising the new console version would see some improvements.

Rookie_Monster1126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

Abriael, are you sure WOT on PS4 is 60fps?

I know you said the marketing director said it is 60fps but an actual developer on the WOT forum said otherwise just a couple days ago.

Q: What is the target Resolution and Frame rate? 1080p 60fps or 30fps?

A: 1080p 30fps.  While the PS4 has a bit more headroom it's not that drastic.

Not saying it didn't get upgraded from 30fps to 60fps but a marketing person are known to be misinformed about the actual development of games from time to time. Don't want people to get after you, Abriael, and blaming you for leaking false info it is indeed only 30fps in the end. Need a full confirmation on this.

Mikefizzled1126d ago

People still don't realise that catering to an infinite number of combinations for a PC spec is a lot lot harder than a few console sku's.

Vermigs1126d ago

The game still runs on a single core on the pc for the most part so that doesn't help it much either.

Bigpappy1126d ago

Rookie has a point. A very legit point at that.

Almost as good as a high end PC?

No.....almost as good as mid range PC.

This is a 5 year old PC game originally. I remember first getting into it way back in 2011 and it had already been out best part of a year in other regions. Long time ago. It has evolved visually over the years but I have little doubt it would be rather different if it was released as a new PC title today.

Roccetarius1126d ago

Indeed, this game is old by now and wasn't that demanding to begin with. I'd actually be surprised if the consoles couldn't handle the game very well.

Krakin11126d ago

At what fps does it run on x1?

DigitalRaptor1126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

No kidding.

Will Xbone get a frame rate update?

GenuineGamer1126d ago

Interesting it says that the xb1 version was capped at 30fps to keep gameplay parity for crossplay with the 360.

dantesparda1126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

@GenuineGamer

You seriously believe that the X1 version was capped at 30fps just to maintain parity with the 360 version when the game can barely even maintain its 30fps? The game has sustained drops to the mid-twenties and drops as low as 21fps (almost a 33% drop from 30fps!). Here dont believe me, watch the video.

PistolsAtDawn1126d ago

Same as PS4 and 360, 30fps. The X1 version was capped at 30fps for crossplay with 360, and PS4 is actually running at 30fps, this article (due to no fault of the reporter) is incorrect, it's not 60fps on PS4: http://forum-console.worldo...

dantesparda1126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

The X1 version was not capped to 30fps to maintain parity. The game can barely maintain its 30fps target, with sustained drops to the mid twenties and lower (21fps)! I dont care what they said, the proof is in its performance.

PistolsAtDawn1126d ago

@dante Try looking for the video after the patch and they fixed that bug, the game is solid, and yes it's capped.

Shineon1125d ago

Stop it you're hurting feelings

Kiwi661126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

Isn't the xb1 version 1080p/30 but there was an interview with Blair Herter who said that all the asets for xb1 were built from the ground up in 4K so can anyone clarify what exactly that means as i don't think the game runs at 4K

Lennoxb631126d ago

Xbox One is running 4k textures. But not 4k res.

Kiwi661126d ago

To those who hit disagree with my other comment about xb1/xb360 parity maybe read the link that #Hoffman provided and there you will see for yourself as to why its 30fps on xb1

Viryu1126d ago

What I'd love on PS4 is cross play with PC users. Xbox One is going to have crossplay with 360 players, and estimated downloads on it were about 5 million, so the starting player base will be quite big on their side.

Rookie_Monster1126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

Sadly, the PS4 version is on its own server and will not Cross play compatible with pc, it seems.

Elwenil1126d ago

With the mods available to the PC crowd, it would be suicide to play on PS4 with PC users.

GameDev11126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

@RookieMonster

The link you posted didnt include anything apart from a neogaf thread about this announcement and only Sony first party studios use their own dedicated servers

Rocket league, Final Fantasy XIV, Street Fighter V to name a few are cross platform with PC, wont be hard for World of Tanks to follow suit

Rookie_Monster1126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

The link on Neogaf is on the very bottom of that page of that link.

Here is the direct conformation from Shahin Kanafchian, the Senior Community Manager at Wargaming, confirming it to the PSN forum when WOT on PS4 was announced.

http://blog.us.playstation....
Shahin Kanafchian on Septem ber 17th, 2015 at 12:05 pm said:
"The PC and Console versions of the game are different (and even made by a different Development studio). While there are definitely similarities, there is no cross-play or migration from the PC version of the game."

Not all games are cross platform on PS4/PC as the FTP games DC universe Online and PlanetSide 2 are also on separate servers between the PS systems and PC and are also not Cross play compatible.
