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.

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

  • 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 🙂

    • 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 😀 @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 🙁 FPS on PC only 🙂

  • 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 😛 I doubt that we’ll see loads of games in native 4k on xbox (if any)
