Eurogamer has posted an in-depth comparison between the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the recently-released multiplatform video game, “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.” According to an analysis article from Dec. 6, the open-world action-adventure title runs better on Sony’s next-generation system when compared to Microsoft’s new platform.

Eurogamer noted that, even before the 1080p patch, the PS4 version of “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” had a better image quality as opposed to the Xbox One iteration. Microsoft’s new console features a hardware scaler that sharpens the image to unwanted levels. The aforementioned title update not only increased the resolution to 1080p on the PS4, but it also added a new anti-aliasing technique that isn’t present on the Xbox One. As a result, the sequel had a better image quality on Sony’s next-generation system.

The PS4 also appears to have a slight edge in terms of frame rate. “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” runs locked at 30 frames per second during the single-player campaign and online multiplayer modes. On the Xbox One, the video game suffers from a few frame drops on rare occasions. You can check out the graphics from the game in the slideshow to the left of this article.

“Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” launched for the PS4 on Nov. 15 in addition to the Xbox One on Nov. 22. The open-world action-adventure title also came out on the Nintendo Wii U, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms.
