Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have confirmed that their upcoming title, Thief, will run at 1080 HD resolution on the PlayStation 4 whereas the Xbox One will have a smaller 900p native resolution. In addition, frame rates on both home consoles are locked at 30fps.
Eidos has promised to deliver a stealth-focused experience in the upcoming title and have already showcased this through various trailers and gameplay videos. Now, Eidos have confirmed what were previously rumors, that the game will run at a full HD native resolution of 1080p on the PS4 and at 900p on the Xbox One.
According to a statement via Eurogamer, most players won't even notice the resolution difference:
Thief launches next week, February 25, 2014 in North America, February 27, 2014 in Australia and February 28, 2014 in Europe on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One."You really need good eyes to see the difference," game director Nicolas Cantin said. "The immersion is more [on next-gen]. We put more detail in, more special effects. But at the same time, we kept the same gameplay experience with the current-gen and the next-gen versions."
