The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta ran a little rough on consoles.

The open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands wrapped up earlier today. No matter what you thought of the game’s actual content and gameplay, performance on consoles has been lacklustre.

The latest video analysis from Digital Foundry takes a look and compares the three console versions, PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One. Performance and visuals are looked at, with some surprising results.

Wildlands targets 30fps on consoles, but regularly dips below that target, according to the report. Screen tearing and frame-rate drops have been reported at multiple instances, resulting in a lot of stutter.

The Xbox One version looks to have the worst of it, with drops to 26fps happening regularly. Although the standard PS4 suffers from a lot of the same issues, drops are less frequent here.

As for PS4 Pro, you can expect a locked 30fps frame-rate, which produces a more consistent and smoother experience overall. This even applies to both 1080p and 4K modes, which is nice to see.

As for the game’s resolution, PS4 runs at a native 1080p, with only 900p for Xbox One. The PS4 Pro takes this up a notch to 1440p.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
