Microsoft Studios’ Roger Carpenter, who serves as the Lead Producer for Minecraft on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, took to twitter to address a number of questions about 4J Studios’ upcoming Xbox One edition of Minecraft.
Taking queries from fans about the resolution and framerate the game would be running at on the Xbox One, Carpenter replied that Minecraft on Xbox One will run at 1080p, same as it does on the PlayStation 4. Carpenter also added that the game would also be running at 60 frames per second, same as it does with its Xbox 360 sibling.
Coupled with the increased draw distance for the game, the 1080p/60fps setting for Minecraft on the Xbox One will yield increased visual fidelity over its Xbox 360 counterpart.
Prior to his answers, these details were never fully confirmed by the developer or the game’s related staff, although most players expected the game to run at 1080p and 60fps due to its low requirements, especially in contrast to other multiplatform games on the Xbox One, whose developers have been more reticent about revealing the resolution of their games.
Beyond offering better graphics, the Xbox One and PS4 editions of Minecraft will offer support for increased world sizes and support map seeds up to 36 times larger than the X360 and PS3 versions. The new versions of the game will also allow players to import their old save files to play with.
The Xbox One and PS4 editions of Minecraft are set for release in August. They are set to cost $19.99.
