Bioware has now confirmed the resolution and frame rate for Anthem on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Here’s what you need to know about this upcoming game’s performance and visuals.
Anthem will be available later in February and offers support for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. It was originally showcased running at native 4K on the Xbox One X but the frame rate was limited to just 30 FPS. Will Anthem offer support for 60 FPS on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhanced hardware?
Bioware’s Mark Darrah has confirmed that Anthem won’t run at 1080p and 60 FPS on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. This means there won’t be any support for 60 FPS on these platforms. If we remove them from the equation, there is no chance it can do the same on the regular PS4 and Xbox One, so basically, the game will run at 30 FPS like Destiny from Bungie.
As for the resolution of Anthem on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, Bioware has already stated that they will both support 4K. In the case of the Xbox One X, we might be able to see a resolution of native 4K just like Red Dead Redemption 2. In the case of the PS4 Pro, it is possible that they will settle on a different method to render at 4K like a dynamic resolution or checkerboard rendering method.
Anthem resolution and the frame rate is likely going to be 1080p and below for the regular PS4 and Xbox One. It is possible that Bioware ends up downgrading Anthem in a significant way for these platforms since it appears quite ambitious for them. The game will still look great but if you want the best experience possible, PC is the way to go followed by the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
