I think around September people were claiming it was around Medium settings, to me the PS4 version looks pretty good, maybe Medium settings and high on a few others like shaders and stuff?

Looking past image quality matters, we do see a direct comparison in texture assets, lighting and effects. However, there is discrepancy between the next-gen consoles in the PS4's use of ambient occlusion - which looks comparable to the PC's horizon-based method (HBAO) on ultra settings. This effect creates a gentle shaded halo around your character's hands and gun while approaching walls, adding a sense of depth to 3D objects that would otherwise appear flat. It's a taxing process for any platform, but curiously there's no ambient occlusion to speak of whatsoever at these points on Xbox One. Its absence is easy to miss due to the inherently darker gamma in our captures, but it's a notable omission nevertheless. [Update: DICE's tech mastermind Johan Andersson has been in touch to say that AO will be the same on the final Xbox One version.]

Otherwise, differences between the two fall into nit-pick territory. Ground textures appear different during the campaign mode, with variations of the same texture being planted in the same spot. Neither one is especially greater in detail, suggesting these tiles are partially randomised, much like the soldier camo designs on our character's arms. The PS4 does on occasion suffer from a slight delay in drawing in higher textures, and likewise, the lens flare effect in some scripted driving scenes on the Shanghai level fails to materialise. These are rare and subtle contrasts; otherwise, all lighting effects such as god rays, bokeh depth of field, shadows and physics are indistinguishable between the two - also true of draw distance on minor objects for massive 64-player online maps.

Both PS4 and Xbox One versions are sights to behold having spent eight years with current-gen platforms, but in their current states, neither can topple the PC's crown at ultra settings - instead coming in closer to its high setting. Cutbacks have been made, including lower resolution alpha used for water and fire effects. The PC also achieves unnoticeable level-of-detail (LOD) streaming as we run across the battlefield, while grass tufts and rocks still visibly fizzle into view on next-gen platforms. Lighting and bloom take a knock too in the step from PC, and it's apparent that individually lit particle effects are used more liberally in like-for-like cut-scenes. The gap is there, but as it turns out, this is all for the greater good of performance.

I'm finding it hard to believe anyone saying the PS4 version looks worse is being serious. It's quite obvious from that gif that is is leaps and bounds better than the XO.

The AA can be discounted as a talking point, though, DICE didn't put it into the XO test version, but it will be in the retail release this Friday.

The textures are clearer, there is a much larger draw distance and the overall look is much close to the PC.

Xboxone suffer from more framedrops and is running at a lower resolution.


I think BF series is meant for PC. I did expect better from consoles though.

In that one screenshot, yes. My guess is, since that screenshot doesn't fit with the rest of the screen shots, that the shot was taken mid-motion.

Im actually impressed with the PS4 graphics. And since my friends are getting a PS4 anyways (they really are not PC gamers)....it makes me want to buy a PS4 just to play BF4. Mmm PS4 or buy a 3930k and 280x or 290??... Decisions, decisions...
