Destiny 2 beta runs at native 1080p on PS4 and 4K on PS4 Pro via checkerboarding

Digital Foundry published the technical analysis of Destiny 2 Beta, comparing versions of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro to a resolution level, graphical sector, and frame rate. The game has been very solid, especially in terms of fluidity.


Digital Foundry has already directed its keen and attentive look at the Destiny 2 beta on PlayStation 4, revealing the strengths and weaknesses of the sequel that is being developed by Bungie.

First of all, you have to keep in mind that it is a beta and as such, there is still time to implement improvements until the final version, which will arrive on 6 September. That said, Digital Foundry says that, overall, Destiny 2 is a beautiful game, praising the effects of particles, volumetric lighting and the use of rain in the initial sequence.

As for the resolution, the Destiny 2 beta runs at a native 1080p on PS4 and 4K on PS4 Pro via checkerboarding, while maintaining a visual impact close to 4K native, with polished graphics rendering and generally very convincing (except for some small graphics artifact while fast-moving areas).

The frame rate, however, stood at fixed 30fps on both consoles and remained solid even in the most hectic situations.

In general, the preparation of Digital Foundry was impressive by the technical realization of the beta, emphasizing the great sense of the scale of the scenarios and the optimum use of the lighting system.
