PS4 Pro Patches Released For Shadow Of Mordor, The Elder Scrolls Online And More

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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
    – Water reflections
    – Improved shadow fidelity

Rise of the Tomb Raider is another game that has been confirmed to included two different modes for PS4 Pro. One runs at an unlocked frame rate with improved visuals at 1080p, while the other mode runs at 4K resolution.

Let us know if you are excited for the 4K resolution support for the upcoming PS4 Pro in the comments below.

    Looking forward to knowing more about how the PSVR benefits from the Pro. I can understand why they are not shouting from the rooftops on this, but looking forward to knowing more and seeing examples of PSVR and Pro gameplay.

    • Icebergg

      As a long time Nintendo fan, you have no idea what delays are. Also, delays make for better games. Quality of speed of production. Ubisoft and EA never miss a deadline….

  • Hvd

    • Peewee78368

      And ps4 pro has native 4k games like Tomb Raider,fallout4, the last of us, Uncharted 4 and Skyrim HD. Nice try buddy

      • popo123

        Only TLOU and Skyrim HD on the games you listed have been confirmed native 4k on the pro. U4, F4 and TR have not been confirmed to be native 4k. They will most likely be 1800p.

            look at all those indies and remasters of remasters…lmao is that your idea of a 4k machine?if thats so my pc 5 years ago was a 4k pc since it can run snes games in 4k…lmao

          • Icebergg

            So busy playing 4k games on your pc you had to see what sony was up to? Sure. I believe you have a gaming pc.

          • MReprogle

            Sorry that some people prefer consoles. Get over yourself. No one gives a shit about your PC.

      • Hvd

        if your idead of indies and 5 year old games makes it a 4k console then my pc was a 4k pc 6 years ago…lol.heck if i can run super mario in 4k on my pc that makes it a 4k pc right?…..lmao nice try

    • SynKronized901 .

      The xbox one s upscaler is complete trash.

      • Aaron L.

        Exactly. I am not even sure honestly why they put it in the xbox one s as it’s the same exact thing my 4k tv and everyone’s 4k tv does already. Basically garbage upscaler. While PS4 pro actually has native 4k games and when they are not, they will be actual 1800p (4k is 2160p), then using checkboard rendering technique to get it the rest of the way to 4k. This makes it almost impossible to tell the difference unless you go within a foot of the TV to see the actual pixels.

      • Hvd

        all the ps4 pro does is upscale so its trash…lmao

        • SynKronized901 .

          It also does native 4k. Your comment is trash.

    • Barry Harden

      You’re still being that Xbot idiot? Native resolution will always be better than upscaling.

      • Hvd

        lol have fun letting some on else decide which game geta a pro patch. and you have ZERO say in the matter…lmao

        • Barry Harden

          Don’t need to worry about that. Even the games without the patches look and run better on the PS4 compared to the XBone versions.

      • Hvd

        have fun waiting for your delayed games and waiting for games to get a pro mode patch….lmao.

        • Barry Harden

          Except many studios will release PS4 Pro enhanced games and has mandated that all of these games released will still run on the PS4. Patches or not the PS4 games still run and look better than the XBone counterparts.

    • faradeiG

      Oh, my sweet summer child…

    • popo123

      Poor, poor child. The two are completely different.

    • kimikazio

      xBone S only resizes the screen size, it is not real 4k. It’s like zooming in a 720p image. Total trash for 2016.

      • Mako

        not quite.. its actually near impossible to tell the difference, you need a microscope. i agree though native is always better. people are still adamantly arguing that the pro will not support native 4k, period. lol.

    • Trim Dose

      nope I would buy the PS4 pro because of the higher specs, would trade my old one for the extra cash, you almost have the double the powa!! for just 100 bucks more ;). I know in the long road devs will start fully utilizing this new specs, xbone will be forced to lower the price tag again.

      • Hvd

        the higher specs dont matter if there isnt a patch for the game it will run the same as the ps4…lol

        • Mikee Remastered

          You know nothing about hardware. All games will run better on ps4 pro. Games that drop lower than 30 will not happen on a pro because of the specs. A game will run only as good as the hardware its on. And the pro has very good hardware. Tell me, how would it even be possible to stop a game performing better on better hardware? You aren’t too bright. The patches they are talking about are for 4k and improved graphical settings. But the biggest plus is every game running smooth. Verdun will now run perfect. Chivalry, fallout etc. Buy a pc and educate yourself.
