Rumor: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is sub 1080p on Xbox One


It appears that Xbox One users might find more sub-FullHD games in the launch lineup than anybody could though not too long ago. Many sources are reporting that the latest iteration of the AC franchise, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, could finally be sub 1080p on Xbox One.

Two days ago, during the latest episode of Annoyed Gamer, game journalist Marcus Beer talked about visible differences between the two next-gen console versions of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. According to the journalist, the Xbox One version looks “fuzzier” and “strained”, while the PlayStation 4 version looks “sharper”, “crisper. Marcus Beer also stated that AC IV: BF has “better draw distances” on PS4.

As if the above were not enough, former IGN editor Jeremy Conrad claims to have heard similar rumors about Assassin’s Creed IV’s native resolution on Microsof’ts system.

For the moment Dead Rising 3, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Killer Instinct are, officially, 720p on Xbox One. On the other hand, Ryse is 900p.

    you mean sub-Full HD, as 1080p is Full HD and 720p is HD. but i kind of expected this on the X1 since the dev tools are in their early states and will improve over time. no biggie.

      1080p is 1 million pixels more than 720, but no biggie /s
