Tekken 7 Is Currently Running at 900p/60fps on PS4, Digital Foundry Finds
Back in July, Producer Katsuhiro Harada said Tekken 7 would run at 1080p/60 frames-per-second on PlayStation 4. However, Digital Foundry recently got a look at the “master build” of Tekken 7 on the base PS4, learning that it’s currently running at 900p/60fps.
After saying they may have noticed a resolution a little lower than 900p, one member of the Digital Foundry team brought up how it was running at 60fps almost flawlessly. “I didn’t notice any drops in performance at all, it’s perfectly smooth from what I’ve seen,” the other member said, later adding, “As there is a drop in resolution from native 1080p, I don’t expect there to be any issues with regards to performance.”
At the very end of the video, Digital Foundry points out that “this is an early build… they may improve it by launch.”
From 2:10 to 6:00 in the video, you’ll get a look at Tekken 7 PlayStation VR gameplay. In the build they played, Digital Foundry discovered that you watch the match from a side view, you can move your head to control the camera, zooming in and out is done by leaning forward and backwards, there’s no HUD, there’s two modes (Training and Vs CPU), there’s no timer, no rounds, and the fight basically goes on forever. Bandai Namco did tell them that more content could be added to the PSVR mode if it proves to be popular, but they weren’t sure if there’d be more to the mode in the finished retail build compared to what Digital Foundry played.
Tekken 7 releases on June 2 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
