Dying Light PS4 Is 1080p/30fps

 

Techland has confirmed the resolution and framerate of the PS4 version to be 1080p/30FPS. Xbox One performance is yet to be confirmed but this makes us a little bit optimistic about a good performing PC port.

The recent trend of lowering both the resolution of console games has made the prospect of maxing out a games at 1080p/60FPS or higher a increasingly difficult task. We all know how difficult recent games like Assassin's Creed Unity is to play with high framerates, being a 900p/30FPS title this is unsurprising. 

The PC Requirements for the Dying Light can be found here. 

 

Dying Light PC specs released

 

A resolution of 1080p has approximately 44% more pixels than resolution of 900p and 60FPS is obviously 2x the framerate of 30FPS, considering these facts playing a game at 1080p/60FPS would require around 3x more GPU power than playing at 900p/30FPS. This is one of the reasons why the PC version of Assassin's Creed Unity and other titles struggle to reach high framerates even with some of today's beefiest PC hardware, after that there is also hardware optimisation to consider further adding to the hardware requirements of the PC version of most games.

So is a game running at 1080p 30FPS on PS4 good for PC Gamers? Yes, as provided the PC version of the game is well made the GPU performance requirements for 1080p/60FPS gameplay is very reasonable and it allows us will more powerful PCs to look at playing the game at higher resolutions and/or framerates. Perhaps if Console Devs made an effort for 1080p/60FPS maybe 4K 60FPS Gaming on PC would be an easy request for current high end PCs.

Funny how the PS4 hardware can play this fine (albeit 30 fps) yet a pc needs high-end specs? :\Quote

its like iphone vs android. iphone has 1gb of ram and any app is super snappy, and android with its 8 cores and 3gb of ram has its issues. And all because every app is first made for iphone and then ported to android.Quote

Looked earlier online actually and the PC specs are average for min spec. 670 is recommended though.Quote

Well on the PS4 it will have lower res textures which can take up a MAHOOSIVE amount of system resources hence the higher reqs on the PC

This, If a game was solely made for PC with current tech in mind we would get extremely well optimized games.Quote
