Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag's PlayStation 4 incarnation received a title update today that brought native 1080p resolution to the pirate-infused open-world game, a representative from Ubisoft confirmed to Polygon.
Title update 1.03, which can be automatically downloaded and applied to the game, was announced late last week on Ubisoft's blog. Prior to the title update, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag rendered at 900p and was upscaled to 1080p.
"The most important part of this title update is not necessarily 1080p native resolution," associate producer Sylvain Trottier said in the recent blog post. "It's the fact that even when we were done with the project, even when we were finished with the certification and everything else, even when most of the engineers had started to work on other projects — like we always do at Ubisoft —some of my engineers continued to work on Black Flag and they even developed a brand-new anti-aliasing technique."
That new technique will also be available in the Xbox One version of the game, which will launch alongside the console this Friday, Nov. 22. You can read and watch Polygon's Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag review for our impressions of the game in its various incarnations.
