Sometimes Battlefield 1’s resolution will drop to a very low value on PS4.

A video and few screenshots of an amusing bug in Battlefield 1 have been recently making the rounds. This bug basically results in the game’s resolution dropping to avatar size 160×90 in some instances.

YouTube channel VG Tech first reported this issue when it ran into it during a frame-rate test video. The video, which you can see below, is intended to test the frame-rate on PlayStation 4 while playing Conquest.

The video reveals that the game is using dynamic resolution tech to lower and increase the resolution depending on the complexity of the scene. The highest resolution reached was 1807×1014, whereas 1100×620 was the lowest – except in instances where it dropped to 160×90 briefly. Take a look:

If this resolution bug sounds weird, it is. The screenshots below illustrate just how weird it is.

Battlefield 1 is out now for Early Enlister Edition owners, and on Friday for everyone else on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
