American video game developer Activision released its highly anticipated game Call of Duty: Ghosts on November 5, 2013 and the latest information is that the single-player component of the shooter for Sony’s PlayStation 4 is locked to 720p resolution straight out of the box, which means that it would require a day one patch for 1080p.
A spokesperson from Activision has stated that even though Call of Duty: Ghosts will be running natively at 1080p, a day one patch will be required in order to play the single-player game at this resolution. The spokesperson said, “There was a configuration issue in the retail version on single-player mode only. This has been addressed with a day one software update. People will be able to download the day one update when PlayStation 4 launches in their territory and play at native 1080p.”
The multiplayer component will feature a 1080p resolution pre-patch, while the campaign will need the patch in order to feature the higher resolution. When it comes to the next-gen consoles, critics have been divided over the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 comparisons and which one of them provides the best Call of Duty: Ghosts experience to players.
Even though Sony’s PlayStation 4 provides the better resolution, Microsoft’s Xbox One offers a better frame rate, regardless of the fact it runs the shooter at a fixed 720p resolution.
