The frame rate and resolution has been analyzed for the PS4 version of the upcoming multiplatform video game, "Far Cry 4." According to a report from Eurogamer on July 14, the open-world first-person shooting title was confirmed to be running at a native resolution of 1080p when it was first shown off at E3 2014. The frame rate is currently running at 30 frames per second with several drops to 20 frames per second on a few occasions.

Ubisoft heavily showcased the latest "Far Cry 4" video game at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. The publisher provided a first look at what appears to be the opening sequence, introducing players to the main playable character as well as the villain to the story, during a media briefing. An action-packed gameplay demo was then featured on a press conference by Sony Computer Entertainment. The footage showed off the new open-world setting as well as several new elements such as the ability to use elephants in a number of ways to attack a base.

The same video also provided a first look at an exclusive feature for the PS3 and PS4 versions. Players will be able to use DLC keys to invite friends who don't own a copy of the video game in order to play a cooperative session for a limited amount of time. The invitee will most likely require the entire game to be installed onto their hard drive. Sony Computer Entertainment is planning to offer the same feature with other titles in the near future although the company has not yet provided any more specific details.

"Far Cry 4" won't be made available until Nov. 18. As a result, Ubisoft should have plenty of time to fix the aforementioned frame rate drops for the PS4 version as well as optimized other visual and gameplay elements. The same video game is also heading to the PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. You can find a screen from the sequel near the top of this article (courtesy of the official "Far Cry" Facebook page).
