Watch Dogs PS4 targeting 1080p

Ubisoft Montreal also says it is "utilising Xbox One to its full capabilities"

The PS4 version of Watch Dogs is expected to run at 1080p.

So said cinematics animation lead Lars Bonde during a PC Games video interview conducted during a recent Watch Dogs studio tour, which also features PS4 footage of the game and can be watched below.

Update: The video has since been turned to private.

Original story continues: Bonde said of the difference between the various versions of Watch Dogs: "The first thing I want to make clear is that, at its core, it's the same experience on current-gen and next-gen consoles. You get the same gameplay out of it.

"Of course there are nuances to it," he continued. "We are utilising Xbox One to its full capabilities and the same with PS4, of course, so I know that, as far as to my knowledge, on PS4 it will run in full HD."

Last month, Arab Gamer claimed Ubisoft had revealed the following resolutions and frame rates for the game during a Watch Dogs press conference: PS4 (1080p/30fps), Xbox One (960p/30fps), PC (up to 4K/framerate varies). CVG has requested clarification on the game's performance across platforms from Ubisoft's UK arm this morning.


The publisher recently announced a Watch Dogs release date of May 27 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, with the Wii U version set to launch "at a later date".

Earlier this week, GameStop revealed that Watch Dogs DLC set to be included in a $20 season pass will feature "a unique single player campaign" starring a new playable character and extra weapons.
