The game runs at 1080p on the Playstation 4, and 900p on the Xbox One at launch, though this will be increased to 1080p through a day 1 patch. Both versions are locked at 60fps. The game shipped with the equivalent of patch 2.0.5 of the PC version. There will likely be a day 1 patch to add fixes and content from patch 2.0.6. The Xbox One and PS4 versions will receive regular updates in a manner similar to the PC version. Seasons will be introduced in 2017.
