In a new video interview, Ubisoft cinematics animation lead Lars Bonde told PC Games that the PlayStation 4 version of Watch Dogs is targeting 1080p, but stopped short of confirming resolution details for the Xbox One iteration.

In the YouTube video--which has since been set to private but was seen by CVG--Bonde says even though there may be visual performance differences between the different versions of the game, the core gameplay will be the same regardless of what console you play on.

"The first thing I want to make clear is that, at its core, it's the same experience on current-gen and next-gen consoles. You get the same gameplay out of it," he said.

"Of course there are nuances to it," he added. "We are utilizing Xbox One to its full capabilities and the same with PS4, of course, so I know that, as far as to my knowledge, on PS4 it will run in full HD."

This tallies with unconfirmed reports from earlier this year, which claimed that Watch Dogs on PS4 would run in 1080p while the Xbox One version would output in something less. Notably, the video in question here is the same video that Watch Dogs creative director Jonathan Morin retweeted a link to yesterday.

Watch Dogs launches May 27 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PS4, and PC. The Wii U version is coming sometime later. Earlier this week, GameStop revealed that Watch Dogs will have a $20 DLC pass that, among other things, will include a new playable character.
