In the new generation, games are expected to take full advantage of the new hardware.
Developer Harmonix will do just that, as their new Rock Band project for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will run at 1080p/60fps when it releases later this year.
The news comes from studio product manager Eric Pope in a recent MCV interview (via VideoGamer ). The team has "built a brand new engine" for the game in question, as they're striving for "more realistic lighting, character models, and animation." Added Pope:
"It'll be 1080p and will run at 60fps. I know there's a vocal group of players that want to hear that. But what to me is more exciting is the online infrastructure of the consoles. It will open a lot [of] opportunities for us to support the game in more reactive, timely ways."
We don't have a concrete launch date for Rock Band 4 but chances are, it'll be ready to go for the holiday season. Excited?
