PlayStation Pro is all set to make its debut on November 10th and Sony has already sent the PS4 Pro hardware to selected press members for review purpose. Since the hardware is being used by the press, developers have started to roll out new updates for the PS4 Pro support. Sony’s first party games are also getting updated and the latest one to receive this update was Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Remastered, which now renders at native 4k resolution on the PS4 Pro, as well as adding improved audio and HDR support for the standard PS4.
I think it’s safe to say that PS4 players have been the ‘winners’ in the whole Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusivity debacle. Sure, they had to wait a year, but in the end, they’re getting the best edition of one of last year’s best games, complete with the original Rise of the Tomb Raider. (you can read our review here TL:DR we liked it immensely), all the DLC, including the fantastically trippy Baba Yaga; The Temple of the Witch and borderline survival horror of Cold Darkness Awakened. The main game also receives an extreme survivor difficulty that removes all the checkpoints from the main game (for masochistic players) along with a ton of new outfits and classic skins which replace Lara with her Tomb Raider 2, 3 or Angel of Darkness model. There’s now also co-op support for Endurance mode which is basically a Don’t Starve style hunt for food and resources while trying not to snuff it.
For Marcus Holloway, the San Francisco Bay Area is his playground. From Marin to Oakland to Silicon Valley to the City, the neighborhoods and people are as diverse as the activities dotted everywhere in the Bay Area.
Horizon Zero Dawn is an action RPG set in a lush, post-post-apocalyptic open world in which humanity is no longer the dominant species. Machines, not mankind, rule the Earth.
We’re very excited about HDR, 4K TVs, and PS4 Pro in general, but to be clear, the game we demonstrated at the past two E3s was running on standard PS4 hardware. We’re dedicated to making a game that looks great regardless of the model it’s played on; it will look beautiful on PS4, and will look even better on PS4 Pro — particularly if you own an HDR-compatible 4K TV.
