Metro HD updates run in 1080p on PS4, but Xbox One unconfirmed

Deep Silver confirms resolution for PS4 version of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, says Xbox One details "not yet final."

The HD updates of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light confirmed earlier today run in 1080p on PlayStation 4, a Deep Silver representative told GameSpot . However, there's less certainly about Xbox One. "Xbox One [resolution] is not yet final," the spokesperson said.

Both versions of the game include updated visuals comprising the following: "advanced lighting, dynamic weather, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction and improved smoke, fire, and particle effects."

Regarding frame-rate, both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light run at a "silky smooth" 60fps, Deep Silver says.

Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC individually later this summer for $25 each. You'll also be able to buy the games together, in a physical package called Metro Redux with all previously released DLC, across PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $50.

I'll have to replay both of these games because they'll be like entirely new experiences at a higher resolution!

So now we're re-hashing remakes of games just two or three years after they were released huh?  HD remakes of games that were already in HD...amazing stuff.

Selling the Xbox one and getting the ps4. Made a mistake.

Hope they fixed the AI...it was pretty dodgy in Metro 2033 for PC.

Graphically, this game was pretty damn punishing at the highest settings. I suspect the XBO will not run 1080 given the trend and what I know about this game.

Still should look great though.

I knew it the PS4 is going to always have better multi-platform games this 8th generation . Microsoft shouldn't had cut corners with the hardware just to include the Kincet and it's hurting their sales with the Xbox One, even with the Kincet-less bundle coming out at the same price as the PS4, people will still keep buying the PS4 because if it's superior hardware.

More 1080p news GameSpot! YAY! Jesus Christ, this site has fallen off so hard both in terms of reviews and news that it's practically a joke. Sad to see, really.

The frame rate is of more pressing concern to me in the heat of the moment.


After all, 1080p means fluck all if the game looks like a slide show.

they could be lying about ps4 running at 1080p cuz it happened b4

When you hear people say "unconfirmed" that is usually a red flag that means that..no it won't be 1080p on X1 mostly all of th time.


1080p 60 though like they promised? Highly unlikely unless they tone down the game graphically by a big amount. 

I don't wanna sound rude, but have you seen how Last Light looks on a medium-high range PC at high/ultra settings? There's absolutely no way that PS4 hardware will pull off 1080p 60.

So is this going to be a regular thing now? Announcing resolutions of games?

This whole HD is a joke, the whole 60fps is a joke, the whole 1080p is a joke... This is a milked down pc versions... Simple as that. They're gonna redo all games from last gen to 1080p/900p... We need new games not collections over and over. I'm happy I own a decent pc that runs all on ultra and 60fps cuz these consoles lack games that aren't on pc...

"silky smooth" 60fps" and 1080p on ps4. Nice :)

I've read it's 900p on XB1, but it doesn't matter, I'm looking forward to it on PS4.

So, the first Metro 2033 on xbox 360 wasn't full HD (obviously) and the remake of the same game on X1 is also not in full HD. So, what's the point of remaking it on X1 then?

Stop using those older crappy engines. XB1 is designed to use newer engines with tile resources. Once these graphic engines are in place, all of XB1 games will be running at 1080P easily.

@Liquid-San Come, come now.  Who else is going to keep us as up-to-date on game resolutions as GameSpot's Associate Editor of 1080p News Eddie Makuch?  He's the only guy I've read who can consistently troll his own articles.

The man is a virtuoso of click-bait.

It's already been confirmed that it will be 900p on the xbox one

@Blue-Sky It's a regular GameSpot thing.  Eddie Makuch needs the work.

@Blue-Sky Its now PR thing. They use it, because big publishers a scared to make unique games anymore and instead talk about graphics

@theoasis77

wow, i guess gaming has just a core audience, which doesn't grow every passing year and every gamer has played each single game when they were released...

both of these titles are very good games and what's the problem with upgrading their aesthetics for a new generation of consoles and gamers...

i had not played tomb raider on ps3 and i am glad that i didn't because i enjoyed it a lot on ps4... believe you me i am not a new gamer... :)

@tableofjapan  neither of those games were in hd on ps3/360 they were upscaled to 720p and 1080p. not native

@SexyMiralda Also if you wanna get technical.


720p is HD and 1080p is "full" HD

720p and 1080p is HD. Everything is HD. The only things that aren't are 480p.

@SexyMiralda The difference between X360 Metro 2033(aswell as LL) and the X1 Metro 2033 (aswell as LL) will be great.

@eternal_napalm

I thought you PlayStation fanboys were ok with Watch Dogs running at 900p but now you say 900p sucks

Fanboy hiprocisiy at it's best

@blackace  Based on that, and I'm not tr0lling you here, any X1 exclusive (at least moving forward) should be 1080p right?

Can't wait to play these again on the ps4 in full HD. I played them on the 360 the first time

Fantastic single player campaigns

720p and 1080p are NOT THE SAME. Lol. I bought mmy first 720p 50" in 2006. I bought my first 1080p 52" in 2010.....HUGE difference. You sir are wrong. Full HD starts at 1080p. Do some reading on it.

DrKill09

@settleasrobin  Actually, 480p is "enhanced definition", while 480i was "standard definition"

PS4 version is better on both :). Hope you're enjoying your cable box!

@wookiegr there are already several titles that run at 1080P (Forza and Tomb Raider just to name a couple off the top of my head) on the XB1. This horse has been kicked to death.

@sladakrobot @ThrashMatt26The difference is how the engine is built to address different assets and higher bandwidth. Next gen. obviously has more of both so the original code is tweaked to take advantage of both.


M$ should have should have had their hired hardware design team test XBone code to take advantage of the embedded 32mb. It would have made a difference last gen. but not this gen. 512mb vs 8gb.
