The first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II comparison video has been released by SupRageGaming, showing how the game looks when played on three different PlayStation consoles—the PS5, PS4 Pro, and PS4. The PlayStation 5 and PS4 Pro run at 4K resolution with 60 frames per second (fps), while the PS4 runs at 1080p resolution with 30 fps.
A New Comparison Video Shows That Last-Gen Consoles Are Holding Up To One Of This Year’s Biggest Games.
For many fans, one of this year’s most anticipated games was a port from 2007. But a new comparison video shows that last-gen consoles are holding up to one of this year’s biggest games. The video was released based on the game’s beta running on PS5, PS4 Pro, and PS4. In the video shown below, you can see clear differences in what players will experience when playing on their old console versus their new console. The PlayStation 5, which boasts 6 teraflops of performance and 8K graphics, provides the best gameplay for modern titles such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. The PS4 Pro does an adequate job of maintaining framerate, but there is still noticeable lag. And, while not as good as either other console, the gameplay provided by the PS4 appears to be sufficient for those who only have access to an older model because it is still playable with minor lag issues.
The Beta For Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II Came Out Earlier This Week.
Video game enthusiasts recently received a first look at the beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II on both the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 4 Pro. Though it's too early to definitively say that either system was better than its counterpart, gameplay differences in comparison videos are particularly evident. Players noted that frame rates seemed to be smoother on PS5, whereas those playing on PS4 experienced something less consistent. Compared to games running on last-gen consoles such as the Xbox One or Xbox 360 (which Modern Warfare II does not run on), graphics seem significantly more advanced. The developers have been quick to reassure players that their experience will only get better once they’ve ironed out any issues with framerate speeds.
The Beta Ran On Both The PS5 And PS4 Pro.
The long awaited sequel to 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has finally been revealed as this year’s Modern Warfare 2. After viewing gameplay from the beta running on last-gen consoles (PlayStation 4) compared to gameplay from last month’s E3 demo, which ran on next-gen consoles (PlayStation 5), it becomes apparent that if you don’t have a PlayStation 5 console, then the game might not be able to reach its full potential. From what was seen in the beta, it seems like all higher-end graphical effects were only enabled for PlayStation 5 consoles, with textures appearing less detailed and shadows rendered more angularly on other platforms.
While There Are Some Improvements.
While there are some improvements to movement speeds in comparison to the PS3, it's largely a slow crawl on foot. There's also a stutter when vehicles start and stop at a distance. It appears that you're unable to aim down sights on the rifle, which could be due to the lower frame rate or lag at distance or just un-tweaked weapon behavior from beta 2 to beta 3. The only way this would be playable with smoother performance would be if you had it on Xbox One X or PC. It appears that Sony has given up on making their console versions better than last-gen, as seen by the recent changes to PlayStation Plus.
The Gameplay Is Still Smoother On The Current Generation.
The first set of footage shows off a lot of graphical enhancements and cutscenes running on the PS5, which are much smoother than on a typical console. The second clip provides an in-game comparison to see how good graphics would look in terms of movement speed on all three consoles. The game was still very smooth to play and allowed for lots of wiggle room when trying to take out players from across an open space. It did seem to be harder to play with any sort of controller as it had more sensitivity, but other than that, it was pretty great overall! This review has shown how the gameplay of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is being hampered by last-gen consoles. In fact, there were no noticeable frame rate dips or even close calls where something might have slowed down during intense moments like gunfire battles. With the use of controllers such as those found on the Nintendo Switch, some people may find themselves unable to control their characters because it will take longer to input commands due to a lack of precision (which can be hard in a fast-paced battle). All in all, this preview offers plenty of insight into what people can expect if they pick up the newest installment.
The Point Is Driven Home In A New Video Comparing Last Gen To Next Gen Gameplay.
The current version of a game engine built on last-gen console software restricts the visual upgrades that can be achieved. For this reason, games with a remastered release are not likely to be released in 4K resolution on these consoles.* Sony may have only shown off 30 fps for Uncharted 4 because its engine also does not support 4K gaming. The developer also has to figure out how to make these new graphical effects work with PS3/PS4 graphics models that run at 30 frames per second.
It Seems Like We Won’t Be Able To Take Full Advantage Of These Powerful New Consoles Until Developers Rework Their Rngines.
Not too long ago, I wrote an editorial stating that consoles do not need to be outfitted with solid state drives. But it seems as though I may have been wrong. According to one of the first footage comparison videos for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II released based on gameplay from its beta running on Sony’s next-gen consoles, its graphics are already being compromised by last-gen consoles. Granted, this was just a beta build for the game, and it still has some polishing to do before release in November. We won’t know how well these powerful new systems can be utilized until developers have time to tweak their engine optimizations accordingly, so they can really shine. It's likely we'll see some more intense graphics and more frames per second if the game gets ported over to PC, but even then there will be limitations due to its outdated console-based framework. It's unfortunate that games like this continue to get pushed back due to backwards compatibility concerns when developers could instead focus on refining their engines for future titles.
