Nier Automata: 900p 60FPS on PS4, 1080p 60FPS on PS4 Pro

Nier Automata runs at just 900p on the PS4, but 60FPS - while the PS4 Pro handles 1080p 60FPS

Nier Automata is headed for the PS4 in March 2017, and during a recent livestream it has been revealed that the game will run at 1600x900 on the PS4, while it'll run at 1920x1080 on the PS4 Pro - both at the glorious 60FPS (which should be a new minimum).

The action RPG will see an improved experience on the PS4 Pro, with better lighting, effects, higher resolution shadows, and more detail - but, there will be no 4K available, and I'm okay with that. I think 1080p at a locked 60FPS is better than 4K and up to 30FPS - and in a game like this, 60FPS is a big deal.

Nier Automata launches on the PS4 and PS4 Pro in March 2017, with a PC version promised - but there have been no more details released about the PC version just yet.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
