Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 7 will run at 1080p and 60FPS on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, according to one of the game’s producers.
It’s no secret that the Xbox One is a bit weaker in the performance department compared to the PlayStation 4. Many multi-platform releases have often performed better on Sony’s console over Microsoft’s. So it’s definitely good news that Resident Evil 7 will have visual parity between the two systems.
According to an interview between GamingBolt and producer Masachika Kawata, the newest Resident Evil title will run at 1080p and 60FPS for both platforms. In addition to that, the game will support HDR on the Xbox One S and the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Resident Evil 7 to Have 60FPS and 1080p on Consoles
While it is impressive that the game will be able to run at these resolutions and performance for these consoles, it might also be indicative of what kind of game Resident Evil 7 will be.
Based on trailers, screenshots, and even the demo, Resident Evil 7 has so far shown much of the gameplay to take place in smaller, more compact locations.
There’s also the fact that the game is fully playable in PSVR. VR titles often struggle with large open-world environments. So implementing a more narrow world is often better.
So it seems to imply that the game, for the most part, will be something of a claustrophobic experience.

Of course this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The developers have mentioned that they wanted Resident Evil 7 to go back to the series’ roots in horror.
With the success of games like Outlast and Amnesia, it’s no surprise that they want to imitate the same feeling of helplessness and constriction that these provide.
We’ll just have to wait until the official release in January if the game will prove to live up to the series’ name and reputation even with these new design choices.
