Santa Monica Studios announces free patch that improves resolution and performance for PS5.
Nice! Another one for the replay list.
Hear hear - next up: TLOU2, please!
and Uncharted 4.
It was already 4k/30fps on the pro Making it 4k/60fps that is the goal because the graphics already top notch This update only look great for ppl who jumped from base ps4 to ps5 .. and didn't buy the pro
I’m not sure what you are talking about. They have made it 4K/60fps
Pro upscaled to hit 4K. Kinda sad Ps5 is having to do the same.
So is this native 4k? Or what's the deal with checkerboard 4k?
Checkerboard rendering on the horizontal lines, the verticle lines are full 2160p.
ENHANCED PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE Syncs to 60 FPS 4K Checkerboard Resolution* 2160p*
Mary Cerny developed the checkerboarding technique. Here's an article where he explains some of it. https://www.engadget.com/20...
This one has me super excited! This was my main game to finish!
Agreed. This is one of those games, like Bloodborne, that I return to over and over. I've gotten the platinum and completed GMGOW, but I'll take any excuse to go back. Ragnorok is my most anticipated game as of now as well.
Awesome, hope RDR2, Horizon and LoU2 get one soon.
Horizon would be awesome I would replay that but the load times are so long if they can patch it so they aren't as long it's an instant win
This was the one I was waiting for! Now I can finally finish it happily!
Great to see this. You could get this if you played the game without patches on PS5 but then you had any bugs they might not have fixed. This new patch fixes that. Sony needs to do this for The Last Guardian as well as that game's patches removed the ability to play it at 60fps
It looks absolutely amazing in the unpatched version But I will now play it with my save file that has my new game + mode
Yeah I just started a new playthrough with the unpatched version. Now I don't have to constantly get bugged about updating the game! 👏
I'll be playing threw this gem again shortly then. Your turn last of us 2.
Nice if only there was a PS5 to purchase now uggggg
nowinstock.net helped me https://www.nowinstock.net/...
Been saving my first play through of GoW, TLOU2 and Days Gone for the PS5...can’t wait to finally to get one.
I started GoW not too long ago. With this news I may save the remaining experience for the 5. Just need to get a 5 first.
I did the same for Days Gone. It is a really good game and plays great on PS5. Not perfect by any means but lots of fun. Might need to do another play through of GOW now, and definitely will do another play through of TLOU2 once there is a PS5 update.
With Days Gone on the PS5, I noticed a vast, game changing improvement, from when I played on the PS4 Pro. Crisper and clearer visuals, along with a smoother frame rate and much faster loading times. Hopefully you will get a PS5 soon, and that you thoroughly enjoy playing those games when you get the chance.
I concur. I was kind of agnostic about it when I played it on previous gen but seeing it run at constant 60fps completely changed my mind. Experience is sooo much better on PS5. The same with Ghosts of Tsushima and now God of War. This is awesome!
Resolution is basically the same as the PS4 Pro just an option to play at 30fps & 60fps. No native 4k resolution.
Close but I don't think the PS4 pro even had a 2160p horizontal resolution. I could be wrong though.
If you look up GOW PS4 Pro's resolution it says 4k checkerboard which states the same resolution for the PS5 update. I'm guessing it's still a PS4 Pro BC update especially for the PS5 not a full-on PS5 version.
Yeah, seems they have added a 60fps mode to the patched version of the game so we don't have to run in 1.0 mode to get the 4k [email protected] I'm happy with that as I couldn't load old saves on the PS5 because they were updated versions.
Awesome news since I'm currently replying GOW. But the upgrade im really excited for is TLoU2.
Replaying these games is gonna be sweet! Played half of Ghosts of Tsushima on PS4 and the other on PS5. It was an amazing experience. Will definitely replay God Of War as well in New Game + Guess TLOU2 seems to be next and maybe even Death Stranding / Horizon since those games released on PC with better visuals / framerate options.
Best Game on the PS4 imo, Ghost of Tsushima close second!
I was literally about to download this game and replay it in a few days. That's awesome and I didn't know if they were just crunching away at ragnarock. Must be pretty close or confident though to do this so close to release.
Wat's the difference between point 2 and 3 here? Is it 4K via checkerboard or 4K native?
edit: IRetrouk explains it better: "Checkerboard rendering on the horizontal lines, the verticle lines are full 2160p."
Thanks. I just wasn't sure because they didn't really explain that very well in their point notes.
Boy oh Boy!!
Fantastic! Was hoping that they would show it some love.
Thank you Sony for not double dipping. Now give all your first party games this treatment!
I was thinking about replaying this in performance mode for 60fps but this one has everything. What a timing!
Awesome. Wish it was native 4k, not being native is not acceptable for a last gen game. but im sure it will still look and play better.
If they hadn't told you checkerboard you'd think it was 4k
Awesome. Been waiting fir this one...
Good, but should've been available day 1 on PS5.
checkerboard 4K? Can someone explain what that is
It is a technique that outputs a 4K image but requires less GPU power since native 4K is such a resource hog. It sacrifices some clarity on the periphery to create the image, but the difference would only be noticeable by examining still images of native and checkerboard 4K side by side. Other techniques used to accomplish this are temporal upscaling and dynamic resolution scaling.
Remember when that article cam out recently complaining about certain premier Playstation games not getting PS5 improvements and now here we are. I swear if people would just be patient its almost like every time they moan about something Playstation related within a week or two we get an update, LOL.
This makes companies that are charging for next gen upgrades look like s***.
what like Sony with Spiderman Remastered? It's definitely going to be sold as a stand-alone. The Ultimate Edition includes a voucher code for it and evens plays without the Miles Morales disc. Sony needs to do these patches for the majority of their PS4 output. Bloodborne and Until Dawn come to mind. Probably the best Souls game and the best walking sim tethered to last gen performance. While Insomniac's work on Spiderman is fantastic, I'll gladly take a simple rez/FPS bump too. Someone needs to explain to the suits that while many PS fans that have played these games before, there are millions of gamers who haven't. Sony made a billion off their games division last year. They can afford it.
I signed a petition today so I take full credit for this 😂
60fps Bloodborne and I'll be a happy man. Doesn't even have to be 4k lol.
Has ghost of Tsushima gotten a ps5 upgrade yet? I stopped playing for something else and then got a ps5 and never got back around to it.
Yes. It runs 4k checkerboard @ 60FPS NOW!
Yes! Been waitin for this to start a new playthrough
I'm so happy theres so much focus on 60fps finally. For me its a game changer, I have a hard time going back to 30fps. I get headaches and some form of motion sickness.
Just bought physical for this...while I already owned digital. Grrrr.
Haven't played it yet (despite owning it for 2 years) so glad to see my PS5 playthrough will be a better one for it ^^
OH HELL YES
Brilliant! Bloodborne next please :)
Now we are all staring at Bloodborne 🙄
Still have not been able to get a aPS5, but I will not buy from a scalper. I will gladly wait, but by the time I will get one a lot of the classics will have the update. That's work perfect for me.
