Rock Band 4 Will Max Out At 1080p/60fps

In the new generation, games are expected to take full advantage of the new hardware.

Developer Harmonix will do just that, as their new Rock Band project for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will run at 1080p/60fps when it releases later this year.

The news comes from studio product manager Eric Pope in a recent MCV interview (via VideoGamer). The team has "built a brand new engine" for the game in question, as they're striving for "more realistic lighting, character models, and animation." Added Pope:

"It'll be 1080p and will run at 60fps. I know there's a vocal group of players that want to hear that. But what to me is more exciting is the online infrastructure of the consoles. It will open a lot [of] opportunities for us to support the game in more reactive, timely ways."

We don't have a concrete launch date for Rock Band 4 but chances are, it'll be ready to go for the holiday season. Excited?

I can't wait to dust off the old plastic instruments and rock out to all my previously purchased music......that is, if they allow us to use them, of course.

Yeah, because 1080p & 60fps really says everything you need to know about the game taking advantage of new hardware, sigh...

Right? A game like this running 1080p and 60fps isn't impressive at all really

1080p and 60fps is suppose to be the standard for PS4 and X1.
Nothing new here.

this is actually stupid. ITS ROCK BAND, ALL IT NEEDS IS FLASHING LIGHTS AND A MOVING BAR. bc this game is soooo graphically crazy that it wont be able to utilize such power? simple shit games like these are no brainers and should automatically utilize full power BC THERES NOTHING TO THIS GAME BUT A MOVING BAR.

Next thing you know, King might probably port Candy Crush Saga to PS4 and boast that it runs at 1080p and 60fps.

You are an idiot. They have the actual characters playing, then the crowd, plus other effects. So no, it isn't just a "moving" bar.

I'd be more impressed if they announced that there will be zero latency between button press/strum and game registry!
