Skyrim SE takes advantage of 4K

Skyrim SE takes advantage of 4K

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition has struck us as one of the few titles showing obvious imrpovements in image quality thanks to the higher resolution. Ratchet and Clank and, to a lesser extent, Rise of the Tomb Raider, have also benefited from the jump. Here is a video of the PS4 port of this iconic Bethesda game.

PS4 Pro Gameplay - 4K

Supposed to run worse that the OG PS4 - How does that happen :( It's turning into a bit of a poor launch. It seems only Tomb Raider devs have put the effort in.

Im hoping when mine arrives later today EA have at least released a good patch for Fifa 17 & Battlefield.

Either the GPU is not powerful enough to handle constant 4K (and thus they should have used dynamic res), or the CPU can't handle the new distant details settings.

4K has four times more pixels to render than 1080p, but they only doubled the GPU power...

BF1 seems to have Pro support already, many people are claiming on Reddit and Gaf that now the game stays at 1080p all the time and is almost constantly at 60 FPS in Conquest MP where normal PS4 could go down to 30 FPS.
So the game may have been built with the Pro tools to use the full power but does not offer new options for now and just use the normal PS4 settings (dynamic resolution up to 1080p).

Any word on improved textures? Better AA? at 1080p? Also no 4k for Battlefield?

Any word on Fifa?

I don't have a PS4 Pro, all I can do is read Gaf and Reddit :D

Some say that EA may be under NDA with Microsoft and that would be why they don't say anything about Pro patches.

But EA already said that their recent games (including BF1 and Fifa) would support PS4 Pro, but did not say in which way and when.

Sony said day 1 for both of them, Very odd situation. It's not like devs are under any embargo regarding patches.

From what I read on Gaf, EA seem to be under NDA about advertising, thus they may not be able to "advertise" a PS4 Pro patch.
But I don't know what is going on, even Dice's devs on Twitter can't say anything :/

About the game


What's up?

    MrWhite Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Online play is so heavily scripted, your team inexplicably feels like a bunch of fat pub players in a sunday league side, and you're supposed to be in control of world class athletes (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I mean, if you look at Fifa online, I've been saying for years that thing is a fix and my mates looked at me like I was mental. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite @GriftGFX: But you know it will in some shape or form. It hurts the game by default just by being there in the same way microtransactions and all that other shite does. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My foremost concern is the quality of game design and user experience. I don't actually care about the exploitation of whales much if it doesn't hurt the game. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX So then top players stop wearing their loot so that they don't get matched with noobs? Sounds like a bad plan. Hopefully anything that implements this stuff leans heavily on ELO first. (3 Hours ago)
