Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag 1080p Update Now Live on PlayStation 4

Posted on November 20, 2013 AT 03:39am

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.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
