With the release of the PS4 Pro quickly approaching, we now have some new details about yet another game making it’s way to the platform.
In an official announcement on the PlayStation blog, Sucker Punch Productions has unveiled new details about the upcoming new patch for their game Infamous Second Son, as well as it’s DLC Infamous First Light, which will enable HDR and 4K resolutions available for the games.
First is HDR, which will push Infamous Second Son’s lighting and exposure to a level never before seen in the game. All sources of light in the game, including street lights and even the sun, will provide a level of contrast that feels like the “real thing.” This feature will not only work on the PS4 Pro, but also on the regular PS4 as long as you have an HDR capable TV.
The second deals with a lot of the little details in the game such as the art, signs and even the coffee cups. With the PS4 Pro’s increased capabilities, these touches are even more pronounced and will bring out a whole new level of detail in the game world. These changes will be visible even if players do not own a 4K TV, as the console will scale down to match a 1080p display.
Jason Connell, Tech Art Lead at Sucker Punch Productions, had this to say:
“The powers look amazing. Delsin’s smoke powers and Fetch’s neon powers are particularly impressive. Watching the original effects now in 4K and HDR, I notice details I didn’t even know existed. For example, when Fetch does a ground pound, waves of brilliantly flickering particles erupt in all directions.”
The improved lighting, rendering, and VFX will apparently make Infamous Second Son look like a completely different game.
Released back on 21st March, 2014, Infamous Second Son and Infamous First Light are available now exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
