The official listing for Assassin’s Creed Unity at Sony Entertainment Network currently indicates that the title is expected to run at 720p resolution on the PlayStation 4. As found here, the description clearly indicates that the game outputs 720p HD. This is rather strange since the last game in the series, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag actually ran at 1080p on the PlayStation 4.
Additionally in an interview Ubisoft confirmed to GamingBolt that they are targeting 1080p and 60fps on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Now there might be a possibility that this listing may be an error and the developers are still working on the final resolution OR this represents the minimum resolution that is supported by the game. In any case, this should be taken with a grain of salt. On a related note, upcoming games like Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition have their correct resolutions listed as 1080p.
GamingBolt has reached out to both Sony and Ubisoft regarding this and will update this post when we hear from them. Assassin’s Creed Unity is due this October for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
