Bungie: Destiny Hits 1080p and 30fps on Xbox One

The multiplayer-only shooter will look and feel quite good on Microsoft's console

The recent Xbox One GPU performance increase has had a good impact on Destiny, the upcoming first-person shooter form Bungie, as the studio has confirmed that it will have a native resolution of 1080p and a framerate of 30fps on Microsoft's console.

Destiny is one of the most ambitious games set to appear this fall, and Bungie has been working hard to ensure that the new multiplayer-only first-person shooter works well on all consoles, in the form of the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

After hearing from Microsoft's Phil Spencer that the recent Xbox One devkit firmware update has unlocked more GPU performance for developers to use, Bungie has confirmed that it's used this extra power to increase the native resolution of Destiny to 1080p.

This full HD resolution will be coupled with a 30fps framerate, according to a tweet from journalist Geoff Keighley, who talked with Bungie.

It's unclear how Destiny will run on the PS4, as Bungie is still mum on that subject.

Destiny will see a closed alpha stage kick off this week, while the beta is set to begin in July. The final release of the shooter will take place globally on September 9 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
