Battlefield 1 tries to keep a stable 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4 by using dynamic scaling of the resolution. However, according to tests run by VG Tech, the dynamic resolution could be a little aggressive in its valiant fight to keep the 60fps target.
VG Tech shared their performance experiences of PlayStation 4 running Conquest citing that the game can drop the resolution as low as 160×90.
Pixel counts indicate that conquest mode in Battlefield 1 on PS4 uses a dynamic resolution. The lowest and highest pixel counts found during regular gameplay were approximately 1100×620 and 1807×1014 respectively. There also appears to be a rare bug that causes the resolution to drop to an extremely low pixel count for a short period of time. The lowest pixel count found during this drop is about 160×90.
The result, a hark back to pre-Battlefield 1942 graphics.
The Battlefield 1 Early Enlister edition is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while the Standard Edition launches next week.
