Techland hopes to get its open world zombie adventure Dying Light running at native 1080p/60FPS on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – a target it is optimistic it will achieve.

"We aim to have the final game running at 1080p, 60 fps on both PS4 and Xbox One, and it seems that we will be able to achieve this," tech director Jakub Klarowicz told gamingbolt.com. "Obviously, we're still working on the game itself and its optimization, but we aim to provide that kind of experience when the game launches."

Dying Light was shown running at 1080p on PS4 during this weekend's VGX, although it wasn't clear that the developer would be targeting the same resolution on Xbox One.

The differences between the current and next-gen versions may not be as great as some fans expected, however, with the game's producer revealing that the enemy AI and the number of zombies on screen will remain identical across both generations of hardware.

"On the other hand, we also wanted to use the extreme processing power of PS4, Xbox One and PC, so these versions use all advancements in the field of graphical fidelity, including our very advanced physically based lighting model," said Tymon Smektala.

"For regular gamers it might sound like a technical mumbo-jumbo, but it’s something they should really be excited about: thanks to the new lighting model, the whole game world looks extra realistic and instantly gets +10 to immersion. Of course, we're also using some of the more specific next-gen features, like lightbar and touchpad support or voice recognition, the latter being tied to our in-game noise system (you can draw zombies’ attention just by screaming at them)."

Dying Light launches on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2014.

Techland hasn't said it will run 1080p/60fps they said they are targeting it.The Ps4 version will run better,i find it funny how you call out the Sony fanboys yet here you are defending the Xbone like it's your mother.Geezus man get a life,until games on Xbone look and run the same as Ps4 you will have to deal with the Ps4 rules comments.This past gen 360 had the better ports,it's only fitting that the MS fanboys have to deal with it this time.

Ps4 version will be 1080p 30fps Xbox one 720p 30fps with lesser effects...get used to it this gen.Ps4 can do 1080p because of RoP's it has twice as many as the Bone.

The keyword in the article is 'hopes'. We'll see whether it actually happens, though it comes to something when the extra 'next-gen' power is used to make things prettier, and the light more... 'lighty', rather than using it for more zombies. But y'know... LIGHT!

GamingBehemoth, are you actually capable of commenting on an article without insulting people, or is normal discussion beyond you?

Gee, never heard that one before. If I had a penny for every time I sat down some spoiled kid about gaming only to have them make fun of a gaming handle clearly made to poke fun at myself, I'd have a few thousand extra dollars laying around.

Get over the hate kid. At this point, I'm sure you don't even know what the hell you're hating over. Or at the least you'll come up with some hypocritical nonsense that'll make you seem all the more idiotic.

OMG not Naughty Dog and The Last Of Us! One good developer and a fair zombie game (couldn't even win GOTY) aren't reason enough to buy a PS4 for me.

You are probably a little Gaf kiddo who thought because a game like COD Ghosts wasn't native 1080p THIS YEAR that it meant the Xbox One wasn't powerful enough to do that. Well now it's looking more and more like that isn't the case.

Continue on with the Xbox hate though, just shows the lengths Sony fans will go to in order to try and defend a purchase of a gaming console. Keep telling yourself they're "for the gamer's" or that they care about you...lol

I think anyone who thought the Xbox One wasn't powerful, or that devs wouldn't be able to get games out at 1080p with ample development time are going to be in for a shock.

It'd be like expecting graphics to never improve on last gen from the start to the end of the cycle. Which is just insane. Looks like Sony fanboys and NeoSHAFT will need to find other things to beat their chests about!

Funnily enough I've been playing through dead island over the last few days. One of my issues with it is the lack of zombies on screen at any time. I can't recall ever seeing more than 4 or 5 in one place. Based on the trailers it looks like that has been improved here but given techlands generally dodgy track record I would be surprised if this manages to get released without a fair few technical hiccups.
