It has been known for a while that the upcoming military shooter will be running at just 1280 x 704 resolution, which as we all know not up to the par of the basic HD, the 720p.
DICE rendering architect Johan Andersson revealed the news 2 days ago, and he said the reason behind of the “untrue” HD is because they want to increases performance and saves memory.
But unlike most games that run at a lower resolution, Battlefield 3 won’t be upscaled, instead, there will be two small black bars (over 8px high) at the top and bottom of the screen. If the image was scaled, it would “just ruin the picture”, said Andersson on his Twitter account.
With the game 16 horizontal lines short of a true high-definition, will you be contemplating to shrugs off Battlefield 3 and moves on with other military shooter, like MW3?
