UPDATE: Worlds Factory has since spoken to Blueside to clarify Lee's comments, which claims that he was actually referring to the PC version being played on the average computer.

"We never compared graphic quality of PS4 with high-end computer," Blueside said. "When we answered to that question, we answered by comparing PS4 with average computers."

The developer continued: "Also I want to make sure to specify that all released video and pictures of Kingdom Under Fire II was taken by PC platform. We haven't released any video or pictures of PS4 platform Kingdom Under Fire II yet."

ORIGINAL REPORT: The PlayStation 4 version of upcoming MMORPG Kingdom Under Fire 2 has "better graphics" than the PC version, according to producer Sang-Yoon Lee, who believes that PC users will be "very angry" to hear about the visual discrepancies.

Talking about the differences between the two versions with 2p.com (via Gaming Bolt), Lee admitted that it was "a little hard to [discuss the differences] right now because if the PC users know, they will be very angry. PS4 has much better graphics. PS4 graphics quality will be much better and higher than the PC version."

It isn't yet clear how exactly the two versions will differ.

Kingdom Under Fire 2 is due to release on PC later this month, with Blueside aiming for a simultaneous release across Europe, Japan and Korea on PS4 later this year. The developer says that it's also in discussions with Microsoft to try and bring the game to Xbox One.

lol, that goes beyond a lazy port. It's a sad state of affairs when certain gamers will cheer something like this just because it's bad news for certain other gamers. Fanboys gonna fanboy.

But really, sucks for KUF PC fans, not that there are many of them, the series has always been xbox exclusive.

I was just thinking how they have managed to make the pc version worse? Surely they develop from a base engine then optimize it for both. You answered my question really I dont know enough about it but its seems odd from the out set that the pc version would be so much worse running. If anyone can explain further i would be grateful

This sounds a bit shady. I know the master race is a bit of a pain constant measuring themselves and then shoving it in your face, but it's obvious the devs have put all effort into the PS4 version and just done an average port for the PC. The PS4 is a very powerful console, but a high spec PC will always beat it if you throw enough money at it. One side of me is cheering PS4 with gloats of retribution, while the other side is claiming foul. PS4 can stand proud without resorting to a lame win like this.

I find this amusing because it's basically them admitting, "yeah, we didn't put any effort into the PC port." The only way a PC version can look worse is when they use different engines (like EA's sports games) or if they were intentionally using lower quality assets (which makes no sense).

Holy crap, these comments.
People can be borderline creepy in their urge to be console groupies.

Honestly I think all the gaming fandoms can be a bad as each other when they want to be, but yeah PC elitists can be annoying.

Ha! PC gamers are worse than Xbots -- I would be upset all the time too if I shelled out all that money to play games on some overqualified PC. How lame can you be?

It might just be because the developers can guarantee the hardware the games running on. PCs have so many combinations it can be hard to find the middle ground.

Haha pc users, now your games look crapper and you have to sit in an uncomfortable position!

Joking. But aren't pc users supposed to be a bit more grown up about this sort of stuff?

I take some sadistic pleasure in seeing this, only because of how stuck up some PC gamers can be.
