Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on PS4 will receive a title update “shortly after release” (which is today) to boost its resolution from 900p to native 1080p, Ubisoft announced.

“But why ship at 900p in the first place? To meet an essential goal: deliver a visually brilliant game at a steady 30 frames per second (the industry gold standard for open-world games),” communications manager Gary Steinman wrote on the UbiBlog. “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. 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.”

In addition to the resolution increase, the title update will also introduce “a brand new anti-aliasing technique,” meaning that Black Flag’s finer details will be even more polished. The improved anti-aliasing will also be applied to the Xbox One version through a similar title update.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is now available for PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. The PC version arrives next week, on November 19. The Xbox One version drops November 22.
