Getting ahead of the resolution question for Far Cry 4 before any details can come through other sources (like what happened with Assassin’s Creed Unity), Ubisoft revealed through the Far Cry Twitter account that they’re aiming for 1080p on all platforms:

With more than a month left until the Far Cry 4 launch, the team continues to maximize the gameplay experience across all consoles and PC. We have not locked the resolution as yet but, as Alex Hutchinson notes, we are aiming for 1080p on all platforms, including PC (depending on the computer you have).

We look forward to introducing fans to the world of Kyrat! Kyrat is coming soon!

Speaking with Game Reactor recently, Creative Director Alex Hutchinson said Far Cry 4 for last-gen and new-gen consoles will be “pretty much the same,” with the team’s plan to keep gameplay on all systems “identical.”

There will, of course, be a few differences between Far Cry 4 on last-gen and new-gen systems, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions getting “a few more encounters.” Hutchinson adds, “But you have all kinds of other features. So you’ve got a new lighting engine on next-gen. You’ve got great new fur shaders on all the animals. Better water reflections and physics. So basically lots and lots of visual upgrades for PC and current-gen owners.”

Far Cry 4 releases for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on November 18 in North America and November 20 in Europe.
