After the latest Battlefield 1 update which was released in November a number of Battlefield 1 players have apparently been facing what is being called a ‘graphical downgrade’. Although it’s been noticed on almost all formats, it is particularly prominent on the PlayStation 4 Pro version. Fortunately, the issue is expected to be dealt with in the next update.
Development Director and Producer Nils Hallberg revealed that the team have gotten to the bottom of the issue and will deal with it in the next update. Apparently, the issues are caused by the dynamic resolution scaler.
“We found an issue that explains a lot of the issues mentioned in this thread, e.g. FPS drops and blurry textures. The issue relates to the dynamic resolution where the minimum was too high. We have a fix for this for all platforms (except PC that does not use dynamic resolution) and it will be included in the next patch.”
Hallberg also clarified a few things regarding the issues:
“I need to clarify a few things. Before the patch (i.e. version 1.02) there was no minimum at all. In 1.04 we added a minimum but due to a bug that got calculated the wrong way and was set way too high. In the next patch we are going to have minimum but it will be properly set. The quality of the textures are, since launch, untouched.”
In other news related to Battlefield 1 their chief weapon artist Peter Olofsson Hermanrud has renders for four of the game’s weapons on his ArtStation profile. They also include a crossbow grenade launcher which might come via a future DLC.
Battlefield 1 is currently available in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
