Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Won’t Render In Native 4K On PS4 Pro At Launch

Dev talks about challenges of working on multiple platforms.

Posted By | On 22nd, Feb. 2017 Under News


In case you’re already tired of Sniper Elite 4, there’s one more on the way with CI Games’ Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. Unfortunately, those with PS4 Pro consoles will need to take note – it won’t do native 4K at launch.

GamingBolt spoke to the developer recently and asked whether the PS4 Pro was powerful enough to render the game in native 4K. The studio replied that, “For the initial release we don’t plan to render Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 in native 4K.”

As for how much of a challenge it is to work on multiple platforms, especially with the PS4 Pro now on the roster, the developer said, “Working on multiple platforms adds complexity to the whole development as we need to properly address all the supported systems.

“On the other hand, current gen of consoles is easier to handle overall and despite the differences, platforms have a lot in common, so with the proper planning we are able to overcome this challenge.”

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is out on April 4th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    So what? It probably won’t render in native 900p on that Xbox tv box.

    • GeekGI

      Gamingbolt recently confirmed that the game would run at 900p on the Xbox One and 1080p on PS4. Assuming this is the case for the Xbox One S version as well, the adding HDR for the S should still make for an impressive visual experience.

    • moreThanZero666

      Yep. 900p and 1080p isn’t native 4K. I think they started to develop this game earlier than was a plan for PS4 pro so if they put target to 1080p on PS4, they wouldn’t change it at the end of developing.

    • Robert

      @morethanzero666:disqus’ That;s exactly what hapenned. Some people might be dsappointed, but what can we do now?

    • hooker

      I see no point of being disappointed about it. This is what it is, that’s all. What’s the point of complaining about it?

  • Gamez Rule

    Senior Level Designer Tomasz Pruski confirmed the console specs for Ghost Warrior 3, while also mentioning that they plan to offer HDR support on PS4 and PC and Xbone S.

    So is base Xbone getting HDR too>?

    • GeekGI

      The standard Xbox One is not capable of outputting full HDR, unless Microsoft has updated it recently with a patch, but I doubt it.

    • Gamez Rule

      I know PS4 has been updated so thought MS would support the base Xbone via updating like Sony showed with their base models.

  • Eddie Battikha

    I just played Sniper Elite 4 yesterday I could care less about this game, never mind it having no chance being 4K Native.

    • Fatty

      I’ve played SE 4 as well and I have to say it’s a fine game but I hoped that we would see SOMETHING new. It seams like the game is the same SE 2 and 3. If you want superior graphics you have to play

    • Lierro

      Did you kill Hitler again, and again, and again? One hitler multiple dies. I hope SGW3 will be better than SE4. They’ve got better ideas, and fresh look. We will see πŸ™‚

    • DannyB

      Yeah, SE games are going to be called Hitler killing simulator from now on. With each edition you’ll get to kill another clone πŸ˜€ @disqus_ftwuyYEmhu:disqus “If you want superior graphics you have to play…” WHAT?

    • Fatty

      Oh sorry I meant to right that if you want superior graphics you have to play on PC. Consoles are great to kick back and relax but they don’t offer as good graphics as $2K PC rig

    • DannyB

      Haha sure there is no comparison. If you spend 2000 on a PC you can play awesome games with loads of mods which is nice

    • Fatty

      Right killing Hitler all day long babe! I hope that they will make SE 5 a better game with some new ideas or mechanics

  • Fatty

    I think that we all have to wait for Scorpio and PS 5 to get a native 4k in games. It seams like loads of developers have problems with optimizing the game this way on PS 4 pro not mentioning xbox

    • Maldy

      Sure scorpio will be a great console but we are at the point when graphics are almost life like. I don’t need better graphics when I’m seating 5 feet away from my TV

    • Fatty

      That’s a good point man. When you’re playing on PC you are usually 1 – 2 feet away from the monitor. I will play SGW 3 on PC because I can’t play fps games with a pad

    • Robert

      @disqus_ftwuyYEmhu:disqus exactly my point – moving, jumping is fine, but I can’t aim very well πŸ™ FPS on PC only πŸ™‚

    • hooker

      So I’m not the only one πŸ™‚ I think pads are for games like FIFA, not for FPS/

    • mistydrakkar

      I think you need to play more fps on XO. At the beginning it’s harder than on PC, but when you get more expirience you can’t say the difference πŸ™‚

    • Maldy

      Oh yeah that’s a good point. I played GTA IV on a PC and it was very weird. It seamed like they left the aim assist in a PC build. After playing the open beta I know it won’t be the case is SGW 3

  • Maldy

    Graphics is the last thing I take into account while rating a game. As long as the gameplay is solid I don’t need a 4k rez

    • DannyB

      I think that the next gen consoles will be able to give you native 4k without getting slightly hot πŸ˜› I doubt that we’ll see loads of games in native 4k on xbox (if any)

    • mistydrakkar

      I agree with DannyB, if there will be such games in a future, we’ll be waiting for them many may years.

    • Maldy

      Sure, we all have to wit until project scorpio is released. The 5th gen of consoles will take console gaming to the next level

  • Robert

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUtQi6PE-kY And what do you think about this newest gameplay? It’s a side mission!

    • Abarth

      What can i say? Great, awesome, i can’t wait to play it. OFC. But i still have to wait 3 more weeks! πŸ˜€ I don’t want to wachted anything from the SGW3 anymore, i just want to play it.. Come on time, please, faster, faster!

    • mistydrakkar

      Well, 3 weeks… this is not such a long time, you’ll make it πŸ™‚ And it’s great there we;ll be able to pla some side missons.

    • hooker

      I’m very glad they’ve decided to go with side missions. I always like to play something different than main story.

  • hooker

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjNcdZGrLsk So here is new video. Hard to believe, but this is really funny πŸ˜€

    • mistydrakkar

      It’s even harder to believe that guys from IGN did it… I found their previous ‘funny videos’ pathetic. And this one is great.
