Last week's announcement of the PlayStation 4 Pro was easily the biggest gaming news event of the week. Out in November, the mid-cycle update from Sony offers up a more powerful PS4, once capable of 4K output, and much higher visual fidelity in games. Which brings up the question. What games are going to take advantage of the extra hardware oomph? Well, read on to find out.
From a retail standpoint it won't be hard to find out as all PS4 Pro Enhanced titles (that's what they're going to be called) will carry the following logo.
The enhancements will range from everything from a resolution bump to take advantage of the newer TVs on the market to HDR Lighting to improved frame-rates and more refined visual effects.
The support won't be limited to games that have yet to be released either, as existing titles can also be patched to take advantage of the PS4 Pro. A process that will be free for all PS4 Pro owners. Take Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as an example. Since the announcement of the PS4 Pro Square Enix has revealed that the game will be getting an update that will feature "overall resolution increased, aliasing reduced, reflective surfaces improved, and more detailed lighting effects implemented."
So yeah, expect these sort of updates to be pretty frequent between now and the end of the year. Here's a list of the PS4 Pro Enhanced titles that we know of.
