Ubisoft has released a patch for the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag which increases the game’s native resolution to 1080p.

The game shipped at 900p native resolution at 30 frames-per-second. Once installed, this latest update will bump the resolution up to a native 1080p. “Finishing the game at 900p gave the development team the extra room in terms of the GPU and CPU usage to ensure the framerate never dips below 30 frames per second,” Ubisoft community manager Gary Steinman explained.

“The team then used the time between the ship date and the release to focus on a title update that could deliver native 1080p resolution on the PS4.”

“If it’s running at 720p vs 1080p, you’re going to notice the difference, by far,” Trottier explained. “But if it’s set at a resolution that’s very close, where most of the pixels are already there in internal processing, most people won’t see any difference,” added associate producer Sylvain Trottier.
