A question leading into the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was its resolution for the Xbox One. Call of Duty games tend to prioritize frame rate over resolution. Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey revealed the resolution on a Reddit AmA Sunday evening.
“Minimum XboxOne resolution is 1360×1080, and dynamically scales from there to full 1080p. That’s over 50% increase from last year.
The Xbox One version of COD: Advanced Warfare will render scenes with minor to moderate action at full 1080p, with major action the resolution will dip to as low as 1360 x 1080 and then stretch pixels horizontally to 1920. This means no screen tearing, but geometric edges are affected, producing blurrier outlines creating a muddier appearance to sub-pixel sampling across trees and grass.
The Xbox One version of the game might run better during busy action scenes, the PS4 version of Advanced Warfare fps drops to the 50s, while the Xbox One version stays at 60 mostly.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launched a day early with a Day Zero Edition and a hidden zombie bonus round as a tease to a DLC release.
