Call of Duty WW2 PS4 Pro: 4K resolution undecided, but a bigger experience is promised


Sledgehammer Games co-founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield have said that Call of Duty WW2 on PlayStation 4 Pro will offer a ‘bigger experience’ than its standard counterpart, although the possibility of 4K resolution remains up in the air.

Speaking during the PlayStation E3 2017 showcase event, the duo were quizzed by the host on what the PS4 Pro version of the upcoming first-person shooter would offer when running on Sony’s high-end games console. When asked if it would support 4K resolution, Schofield offered, “Yeah, I mean, that’s what we’re planning on. But I don’t know how much we’re talking about.” 

Finally, when pushed as to whether the PS4 Pro version would at least offer players “a bigger experience,” Coundrey added: “Yeah, absolutely.”

At the least then, PS4 Pro players can expect some sort of performance advantage, although it seems the prospect of a native 4K resolution has yet to be decided. We could be looking at an upscaling job, or perhaps just a resolution bump that puts it ahead of the standard PS4 release without necessarily hitting the 4K benchmark. 

Call of Duty WW2 is scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on November 3, 2017. The game is the first entry in the multi-million selling franchise to be set in World War II since 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War, and attempts to offer a more realistic gameplay experience by eschewing popular mechanics such as health regeneration and unlimited sprint. 

The game’s campaign will focus on the exploits of the U.S. 1st Infantry Division, with players battling the Nazis across Europe as they steadily pushed back Axis forces during the latter stages of the Second World War.
