Battlefield V is an upcoming first-person shooter set in World War II. The game features single-player campaign scenarios similar to Battlefield 1. For example, one of the main missions focuses on a female solider, her history, and her family. The developer said that Battlefield V tells the "untold stories of World War II", but it's unclear if they're works of fiction or interactive reenactments.
Ever since the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro launched, gamers are always interested in comparisons between the two platforms. Today, Digital Foundry conducted an analysis on the Battlefield V Open Beta on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. According to the outlet, the game achieves native 4K resolution on Microsoft's machine, but only manages 1800p on PlayStation 4 Pro.
While both versions utilize dynamic scaling, only the Xbox One X hits native 4K. Dynamic scaling is a technique which lowers the resolution in order to preserve frame rate. Apart from that, it's unclear if Battlefield V uses a checkerboarding solution because there are a lot of complex post-processing effects used to render the image. Considering that Star Wars Battlefront II didn't utilize checkerboard rendering on Xbox One X, we can probably expect the same from Battlefield V.
Battlefield V runs at 60 FPS on both consoles, but there are frequent frame rate drops. The beta is early code, so hopefully developer DICE will fix that when the final version ships in a few months. Recently, EA announced that the game has been delayed to November 20, 2018.
