Battlefield 1 PS4 Pro Version Cause of Issues Identified by DICE
A fix for the problem is coming soon.
It looks like DICE have identified the reason that the PS4 Pro version of Battlefield 1 has been having so many issues. Issues with the PS4 Pro version of Battlefield 1 have included FPS drops, blurry textures, and worse visual quality, since the newest update for the title.
However, according to what development director Nils Hallberg explained said on the official forums, the cause of the problem has been identified, and will be fixed with an upcoming patch. “We found an issue that explains a lot of the issues mentioned in this thread, e.g. FPS drops and blurry textures. The issue relates to the dynamic resolution where the minimum was too high,” he said. “We have a fix for this for all platforms (except PC that does not use dynamic resolution) and it will be included in the next patch.”
He clarified for the record that the visual quality degradation was not something that DICE had intended, but a bug. “I need to clarify a few things. Before the patch (i.e. version 1.02) there was no minimum at all. In 1.04 we added a minimum but due to a bug that got calculated the wrong way and was set way too high. In the next patch we are going to have minimum but it will be properly set. The quality of the textures are, since launch, untouched.”
All of which sounds good to me, and good on DICE for identifying the problem this early, and getting a fix out so soon, too. Battlefield 1 is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
