Capturing PlayStation 4 final code footage at the Star Wars Battlefront review event last week, Digital Foundry performed a frame-rate test, noting that things seem to be even smoother compared to the open beta.
Aiming for 60fps, the analysis says Star Wars Battlefront performance on PS4 “is looking excellent.” While they only played with 30 people and didn’t get the chance to test out the full 40, they add, “But, based on what we’ve seen thus far, things are looking very promising.”
Digital Foundry continued:
What we have here is basically a very stable 60fps. It’s not perfect – there are duplicates popping up here and there in select situations – but the overall level of performance is remarkably stable here, a far cry from Battlefield 4.
It’s a jump forward from both the E3 version and even the recent beta. DICE has achieved a level of performance on par with the likes of Metal Gear Solid V and Halo 5.
Recalling performance drops seen during the Hangar section in the beta, they now say things are looking up in the final version. “In this particular footage, the frame-rate remains extremely stable in this section, though of course we’ll need to wait until we can put it through the ringer this week to say for sure.”
While we don’t know the exact resolution of Battlefront’s retail version, the beta did run at 900p on PS4.
If you’re planning on buying Star Wars Battlefront when it launches on November 17 in North America and November 19 in Europe, you’ll need to download update 1.02 before hopping online.
