FIFA 18 WIll Run In 1080p and 60FPS On Switch In Docked Mode

"We spent a lot of time actually understanding what the console is."

Posted By | On 24th, Aug. 2017

The Nintendo Switch is getting a surprisingly full featured version of FIFA 18 this year right alongside the other versions of the game- and now, it as been confirmed that it will be running in a full 1080p on the Switch when the Switch is docked in console mode, and in native 720p (which is as high as the console’s screen resolution goes) in handheld mode.

It will also maintain a blistering 60 frames per second framerate throughout, which to me is the most impressive thing about all this. “We spent a lot of time actually understanding what the console is”, the game’s supervising producer Andrei Lazarescu said. “In docked [mode], which we’re seeing right now, for example, it is 1080p and running at 60 frames per second. When you plug it out and play it in handheld it’s 720p.”

Given all of this, and the fact that the game maintains full feature parity, including physics based rendering, as well as all modes except for The Journey, while also adding Switch specific modes and features such as instant local co-op multiplayer, it is really clear that EA has actually spent a surprising amount of time working on this game- far more than anyone might have given them credit for. Hopefully the final game ends up being on par with its cousins on other platforms. FIFA 18 is launching on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
