The Last of Us Remastered PS4 Pro Patch Adds Native 4K, HDR Comparison Shows Improvement

The Last of Us Remastered has received an update today for the PS4 Pro. This update seems to add 4K native rendering for the game on PS4 Pro in addition to HDR (High Dynamic Range) color support on the standard PS4 and PS4 Pro.

While it remains to be see how The Last of Us Remastered looks like rendered at native 4K, we can see some examples of the game being rendered with HDR on the standard PS4. The comparison below does show some noticeable improvement but to see it in full effect, you will have to see it on a HDR supported TV.

The Last of Us Remastered is one of the confirmed games to support native 4K on the PS4. The addition of HDR is nice to have and as the comparison above shows, it can have a noticeable difference on the visuals, as details are resolved more clearly.

The Last of Us Remastered was released in August 2015 for the PS4. It was originally released for the PS3 and then Remastered for the PS4. It will be finally playable in native 4K resolution with the launch of the PS4 Pro this November.

Let us know what do you think about the difference between the HDR and Standard display in the comments below.
