PES 2016 has been confirmed to be 1080p for the Xbox One. This is an improvement over PES 2015.
The European Product manager for the series, Adam Bhatti, confirmed on Twitter:
“We got there thankfully, Xbox One PES 2016 will be 1080p”
If gamers remember correctly last year, Konami only managed to render PES 2015 at 720p. It ran at 60fps, but the PS4 version was 1080p and 60fps.
Konami may have had more knowledge of the Xbox One console this year to make PES 2016 a better resolution this year. Bhatti confirmed that it will be full 1080p.
GameRevolution speculates this could mean that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be 1080p for Xbox One as well. After all, both games are using the FOX Engine to power their graphics.
Although Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a different game from PES 2016, so the results may not be the same. We’ll just have to wait and see once both games come out in September.
It was revealed just a few days ago that Rise of the Tomb Raider has reached the 1080p benchmark for Xbox One as well. It looks like developers are now able to get more from the system than before.
