Skyrim Special Edition Runs at 1080P 30FPS on Consoles

Skyrim is a game which doesn’t require an introduction and has probably been played by the vast majority of people. Of course, the original console versions on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 were limited and didn’t provide the best possible experience. Not only that, Bethesda encountered major problems with Sony’s Cell architecture which resulted in the game crashing and running quite poorly. Thankfully, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners can purchase Skyrim Special Edition to revisit the game on the latest generation of hardware. According to Digital Foundry, Skyrim Special Edition has a 1080p render on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while maintaining a consistent 30 frames-per-second figure:

“Overall, it’s a pretty solid 30fps with just minor stutter – we suspect that storage and streaming may well be the issue here, more noticeable on Xbox One,”

During the lengthy analysis, Digital Foundry concluded:

“It can be viewed as an enhanced PC port for the current-gen platforms and in comparison to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, there’s a night and day improvement in terms of performance and stability, not to mention resolution, art quality and overall levels of detail. If you’re having a difficult time deciding which console version to pick, you can’t go wrong with either. So far, both consoles appear remarkably like-for-like in terms of their presentation,”

This is to be expected given the horsepower of both consoles, although 60 frames-per-second would have dramatically improved the experience. Please note, those investing in a PS4 Pro will be able to play the game at a native 4K resolution and harness the system’s improved technical abilities.
