Sony will release an enhanced version of the original PS4 this Holiday. The new PS4 is being called the PlayStation Pro and will feature improved hardware compared to the standard PS4 or the PS4 Slim.
While PS4 Pro isn’t out until November 10th, some of the developers are already working on releasing a patch for it. As promised earlier, the games that are getting a pro patch include Square Enix Montreal’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Warner Bros Interactive’s Shadow of Mordor and Bethesda Softworks’ The Elder Scrolls Online. All of these games will utilize the extra hardware power of PS4 Pro to render at 4K resolution, or offer visual upgrades at native 1080p resolution.
The first game to get the PS4 Pro patch was Hustle Kings and now it appears more games are getting PS4 Pro update before its official launch. Shadow of Mordor: Game of the Year edition has been updated to version 1.02 with the changelog mentioning support for 4K resolution. Similarly Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has also been updated to support the PS4 Pro 4K resolution.
Lastly, Bethesda Softworks’ The Elder Scrolls Online has received a major update today that adds PS4 Pro compatibility to the game. It also features visual upgrades for those who will play it on 1080p display.
- 4k Mode– This includes all of the graphical features available on the original PlayStation®4, and the game is scaled to 4k resolution.
– This is the default when the PS4 Pro is hooked up to a display that supports 4k resolution.
- 1080p Enhanced Mode– This includes all of the graphical features available on the original PlayStation®4, and also includes the following graphical enhancements:
– Ambient occlusion
