It appears DICE is not having any troubles developing Star Wars Battlefront for the PS4. They feel the game will look great on the console.
When the recent Star Wars Battlefront trailer dropped a few weeks ago, many people were amazed by its visuals. What was even more amazing was that the footage was taken from the PS4 version. Many people expected DICE would have shown the game on a high-end PC first.
Star Wars Battlefront’s producer, Sigurlína Ingvarsdóttir, recently spoke on the game’s development on the PlayStation Blogcast.
Ingvarsdóttir revealed the reason that Star Wars Battlefront looks so great on PS4 is because DICE is more familiar with the hardware. DICE learnt a lot the first time when making Battlefield 4 on the PS4. That game was a launch title, so the team didn’t have time to fully understand the hardware of the console.
With Star Wars Battlefront however, DICE feels they are getting much better results out of the PS4 console. Ingvarsdóttir said DICE was “able to get the maximum out of the hardware, and really able to sort of harness that power“. DICE also collaborated with the engineers from Sony to help them get the most out of the PS4.
