Horizon Zero Dawn Patch 1.02 Introduced a new visual toggle allowing users to favor performance or resolution. Here is what it does.
my 4K OLED is so ready. This will be the first game that will truly make me appreciate my new TV.
This is the game that actually made me buy my 4k TV. I won't even watch Netflix or 4k BluRays on it, I was just waiting for the right 4k games to come out.
Don't jip yourself even 4k netflix looks amazing. I've rewatched a few series just because of how good it looks in 4k . Of course not as pristine as 4k bluray but still miles better than 1080p
Bit of a waste.. I immediately got a free Netflix uhd month trial to try some 4k content. Watched any old s*** at first as long as it was 4k. Jealous of the oled. Just counldnt justify it. Next one though.
^Well my gf will make me watch 4k Netflix anyway. It's just that she doesn't know I bought this thing for Horizon, Gran Turismo and God Of War :D
Wow, according to the disagrees, you don't know what you're talking about. How dare you make a personal choice. /s
Damn, gonna look amazing on that TV!
You got to try Uncharted 4 on that TV right now! It looks great on my KS8000 TV
lol.. I am so backlogged that I haven't had a chance to try Uncharted 4. Still trying to finish my Uncharted collection first so I am caught up :P
I'll go with super sampling because frankly i am more bothered about jaggies than performance dips.
Honestly, I really can't see jaggies either way. It's more a bit of definition on rough surfaces and vegetation.
Waste of a patch. If it's not enhancing the frames then why call it favored performance?
Because it DOES enhance frame rates. Just not by much. It's fully stable instead of dipping very slightly in some areas. Options are good.
it should have said stabilized frames instead of what's in the title... I'm still gonna get it tho.. I'll be an #earlykoppers gonna upload some vids on YouTube as well.. Channel name Wazikix
lots were hoping it would get higher frame rates than 30 and i agree, the game was already pretty stable at 30 and NOBODY was complaining before about frame rate dips. seems odd to now have a favored performance when its not much difference. http://n4g.com/news/2021535...
no difference at all
Probably need to look at them on a larger screen than your phone.
I can't see anything either.
Just for the record, for all of the disagreeing people... I think the game looks absolutely spectacular. And I'm totally going to get it. I just do not see one single thing different in those images. But I rarely could in the old 900p vs 1080p comparisons that everyone was up in arms about 2 years ago either. I just literally do not see it. My vision is good, I'm starting to wear reading glasses now because I'm getting old, but I can see fine, I swear. lol
I'll try resolution mode first, but if I notice dips, I'm prioritizing performance.
That sounds like a plan! I think I'll do the same since they stress the dips are so infrequent.
I wonder if this is an option on the regular PS4 if that's the case I'd probably be more opt to use the performance and sacrifice on the resolution.
That's what I want to know. How does it run on a regular PS4?
My God it looks amazing either way, what a game engine:)
Resolution mode for me.
I'll take it this patch is just for the PS4 Pro. The article doesn't say if the same option's will be available for the base PS4. It would be cool if it's for both. 900p with better performance sound's good
people down voted my "no difference" post but please elaborate on what is different then please. In some of the pictures performance mode even looks sharper.
I'll see what it's like in both and then make a choice. I have an 58" LG 4K TV and a 27" 1080p Zowie Monitor, both very nice, but I do actually prefer being up close on my monitor screen, especially for FPS games. Was hoping for some extra fidelity like Tomb Raider offered.
What is your LG series name?
I would prefer an unlocked framerate around 40 - 45 fps if possible, with lower resolution. I think it is possible if it runs at 4k at 30 fps 99.99% of the time.
Digital Foundry did a great breakdown and in this case the game runs great in resolution mode with no loss in performance and with a PRO it seems to be the best way to play.
Oh yeah! My 4K tv is ready! I'll go with favor resolution. But I mean it sounds like you can switch it on the fly at anytime so I might experiment with it a little bit to find my preference.
Tomorrow i will pick up the game.. resolution mode on a 4k tv with hdr for me
My Goodness! I cannot wait to play this on my 4k HDR OLED TV... It looks absolutely astounding
Nice! I'm on a samsung un65ks9000. That baby aint no slouch either!
I was gonna get that, until I saw my friend's LG OLED TV... He got it in 65", but I didn't have $3200 to drop on it so I went with the 55" model... Absolutely gorgeous
I would have chosen frame rate in the past, but now that I have a 4K tv I HAVE to go with resolution. It blows my mind when I see games running on it in 4K. I'm in gaming heaven with my PS4 Pro & 4K tv. ...and to those who want to respond with a comment about PC's, here's a pre-emptive... "F**k PC!"
Wish they unlocked the framerate like tombraider as atleast a choice instead
Some people are beyond silly when it comes to the most minor of dips. I'm sticking with 4K. Constant 4K image quality with minor dips beneath my notice. Sounds good to me.
Did you guys check out digital foundry's in depth on this game... This game looks so beautiful prolly the most beautiful game ever made, though UC4 will always be special but HZD looks amazing.. Can't wait.
