F1 2018 Will ‘Technically’ Run At 4K/60 FPS On PS4 Pro And Xbox One X

Game director reveals frame rate details and targeting resolutions on all consoles, base and enhanced.

Posted By | On 05th, Aug. 2018

Codemasters’ F1 series has always been an absolute looker, simulating and recreating the high speed thrills and technical layers of the sport to almost absolute perfection. F1 2018 is looking like an even more impressive game, including in the visuals department. Recently we sat down with Lee Mather, the game’s director, and quizzed him on (among other things) whether or not the game would be receiving any enhancements on the Xbox One X or the PS4 Pro, and his answer was… interesting, to say the least.

Mather told us that the biggest visual improvement players would notice would be thanks simply to the base improvements F1 2018 itself is making in those areas, though there would still be differences between all four console versions of the game (that is, PS4, Xbox One, and both their enhanced versions), before going on to tell us exactly what frame-rate and resolution benchmarks the game will be targeting on each one of them. 60 frames per second is something the game will target all across the board, but the resolution, of course, will vary.

“As with F1 2017, there will be visual differences across Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4, and PS4 Pro,” Mather told GamingBolt. “The differences will all be related to enhanced visuals and screen resolution, but you can be sure that all four platforms will benefit from the huge visual uplift which the game has received this year. Technically, we’ll be running Xbox One and PS4 at 1080p, with Xbox One X and PS4 Pro at 4K, with all four running at 60 FPS.”

However, it’s not clear whether this will be native or some other form of 4K resolution, but regardless, that’s impressive, to say the least. As I’ve said, F1 2018 looks stunning as it is, and running at “4K” resolutions on the upgraded consoles, I’m sure it will look even more beautiful. What’s even more impressive that it will be hitting (or at least trying to) a frame rate of 60 FPS on all four consoles, which, obviously, is a very, very special bonus in a racing game, especially one that relies on realism and authenticity as its main hooks.

F1 2018 launches on August 24 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC- here’s everything you need to know about the game.
