According to a recent update via the Bethesda blog, gamers should not have to worry about there being a gameplay discrepancy among platforms supporting the upcoming DOOM. Whether you have an Xbox One or PS4, DOOM we are told will run at 1080p / 60 fps on all platforms.
“We want players to wonder how DOOM and idTech 6 games can be so visually stunning at 60 frames-per-second at 1080p on all platforms, when other titles cannot even achieve a similar look at 30 frames-per-second,” said project programming lead, Billy Khan.
Khan goes on to state, “Our goal is to be the best-looking game at 1080p at 60fps.”
It should be noted that PC gamers should not take this with the understanding that the PC version will be limited to just 1080p/60fps. This statement is more geared towards balancing the console perception for the better in light of the resolution and frame rate gate discussion.
Doom launches May 13 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
