Visceral Games has confirmed what resolutions Battlefield: Hardline will run at on new-gen systems. In response to a question on Twitter Visceral confirmed that the spin-off will run at 900p on PS4 and 720p on Xbox One.

As expected the PC version of the cops and robbers off-shoot of DICE's famed military multiplayer series looks set to be the best version, as resolution and framerate is ostensibly only limited by the capability of PC hardware, meaning 1080p at 60fps and beyond.

The PS4's superiority in terms of resolution hasn't changed since the last game in the series, Battlefield 4, with both games running at 900p on each console. Most players won't notice a great deal of difference where resolution is concerned, but 1080p at 60fps was the expected norm for the new-gen consoles and that isn't yet the case.

Visceral's first foray into the Battlefield series follows their successful Dead Space horror series and precedes work on a new game based on the Star Wars property. Last year it was speculated that that game may take place alongside the new trilogy of films.

Battlefield Hardline will be released on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on Tuesday, 17 March.
