The Witness to run at 1080p 60fps on PS4

Nine new screens show off its bold aesthetic.

Jonathan Blow's long-awaited follow-up to Braid, The Witness, will run at 1080p with 60 fps on PS4, according to its creator.

"At release on the PS4, we are planning to render at 1080p and 60 frames per second," Blow stated on the PlayStation Blog. "Right now we meet this target in many areas of the game, but not everywhere. But with more old-fashioned hard work we should be."

As for when the game's coming out, Blow remained cagey. "It is still officially 'when it's done', but these days 'when it's done' is getting closer and closer," he explained. "The Witness is an ambitious game with a lot of things for us to get right, and getting it right takes time; I don't want to rush the game out at the cost of quality." Blow noted that he's been working on The Witness for five years, so there's no sense in rushing it now.

It's pretty far along, though. "All the gameplay along the 'main line' of the game - the stuff you would expect to do from the beginning to the end of a standard playthrough - is done," he said. "But, this is a game that has a lot of extra things for players who are really into the game and want more; we are still designing some of those extras."

For now, enjoy nine new screenshots of Blow's upcoming enigma.
