Currently, Battlefront Beta On PS4 Is In "Healthier Shape"
So, on which system do you intend to play Star Wars: Battlefront?
The beta for the hotly anticipated multiplayer shooter is in full swing and tech lovers Digital Foundry have compared the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
First, they discovered that DICE's effort runs at 900p on PS4 while the Xbox One edition runs at 720p, which leads to the following compromised graphics:
"From an image quality perspective, the compromises are just as you'd expect; we see more aliased edges, and a higher level of shimmering on fine distant detail--particularly on Tatooine's flag-lines. Added to that, there's a softening to the picture as a whole--a result of a more drastic upscale, combined with a similar grade of post-process anti-aliasing to PS4."
However, texture and shadow quality are virtually identical between the two versions, as is the use of tessellated geometry. Also, both versions have similar levels of pop-in, so you won't spot much of a difference there. That being said, the crew concludes that at this point, it's fair to say the PS4's beta is in "healthier shape."
The Star Wars: Battlefront beta doesn't offer an offline option (although the final version will), and for more info on the test, click here. The game is slated to launch on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
