It is being claimed that Tomb Raider is the next big release to enjoy a notable performance advantage on PS4.
A report on Rocket Chainsaw claims that while the game will run in 1080p on both PS4 and Xbox One, it will hit 60fps on Sony’s machine but only 30fps on Microsoft’s.
“The Xbox One build can technically reach around 45fps, though this performance is generally only achieved during the most empty, simplest environments,” the site claimed.
“For most of your play, and during action scenes, the Xbox One build will sit on around 30 fps. On the other hand, the PlayStation 4 build will attempt to hit 60 fps as often as possible, and does a pretty good job of doing so, but does have slight dips under 60 fps during certain scenarios.”
While the game’s producer Scot Amos has previously told Eurogamer that the game would run at 30fps on both platforms, Videogamer says that he last night claimed on a Gamesradar livestream that the PS4 was running at 1080p. He did not comment on the Xbox One build.
Next-gen framerates were big news at the end of 2013, with several titles enjoying performance gains on Sony’s machine.
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on January 31st.
