The Wild Eight Dev: Native 4K At High FPS Possible On PS4 Pro, Targeting 1080p/60fps On PS4/Xbox One
‘We think it is quite achievable.’
The question of native 4K on the PS4 Pro is always one that remains up in the air- after all, the console, while sufficiently powerful, is hardly powerful enough to run most AAA games in native 4K. However, there’s always a chance of making it work- Naughty Dog did with The Last of Us Remastered.
So when we got the chance to sit down with Ivan Belousov, Producer of the upcoming The Wild Eight for an exclusive interview, we decided to ask him if the game will be hitting native 4K on the PS4 Pro without a hit taken to the framerate.
“We think it’s a quite achievable thing,” he said. “Can’t tell you anything in particular just now, but the whole idea sounds like something we could implement. Stay tuned for the upcoming news on the console versions.”
He also confirmed that the Ps4 and Xbox One versions – the base PS4 and Xbox one versions, that is – would both be running at 1080p and 60fps. “60 FPS and 1080p [for the PS4 and Xbox One versions]. No need to disappoint those waiting for the upcoming console release,” he said.
This is good news, in the end- while the highest end games may often run into problems on the consoles, and even the PS4 Pro, it sounds like for most games, what these systems provide is more than enough.
