Higher resolution, solid 60fps, and nearly 3x faster loading times. Great update!

Great update indeed. i am loving the trend of making old games feel new again with 60fps support. i hope it continues for Bloodborne.

GamerRN51d ago

But when Xbox did it, everyone said who cares because they didn't buy next gen for old games?!

It's amazing how these console wars work

darthv7251d ago (Edited 51d ago )

^^correction RN. When Xbox did it, it was PS fans who said "who cares, I buy a new console to play new games..." And to some extent they are right. We buy new systems for new experiences and what we have when these existing games get given improved performance is quite literally a new experience. some would say its still an old game but it is an old game given a new lease on life by providing a different overall experience through the power of new technology.

And honestly there may still be some who have yet to even have played (this game for ex) some of these. So to them they would be new experiences.

You're leaving out a major part of that. Xbox currently only has last gen games while PS has released multiple current gen games. See the difference?

..Higher resolution??

It’s exactly same resolution as PS4 pro 2160p checkerboard from 1440p. Not sure why this video showed comparisons for resolution and draw distance as It’s only FPS and loading times that have changed. Definitely time for me to go back and finally complete it though.

Ron_Danger52d ago

Notice how the preview pic has ps4, ps4 pro, ps5?

SeTTriP51d ago

Wow so accurate facts = thumbs down.

metabolicfrolic51d ago

Officially runs better than on my PC.

gamingtext202051d ago

So true, even until this day, the PC version still has some issues.

PrinceOfAnger51d ago (Edited 51d ago )

Runs 120 fps 4k ultra on this PC

BLow51d ago

Yes, nice. And I don't care what anyone says, the fact that this game runs 30fps on the OG PS4 is nothing short of amazing. I mean it did dip 1 whole frame during this video but I don't think you would notice that during gameplay. Amazing achievement by GG.

I can't wait for part 2. Loved the 1st. Happy Gaming y'all.

People like you are the worst lmao You focus so much on specs and belittle people that enjoy the game for how it looks. There's absolutely no doubt that HZD was one of, if not the, best looking open world games to come out last generation. Pulling off those visuals, in an expansive open world, on a base PS4 is a technical marvel whether you think so or not. Go away lol

perfect, I haven't beaten the game yet, so I can't wait to try this out on the PS5 now.

masterfox52d ago

Is unbeliavable how this game looks at 60 fps, kinda strange in this comparison it shows modes performance and resolution in the PS5 segments, cause for me those Options it shows to me Unavailable and cant switch options and by default is already 60 fps , not sure if someone else has this problem or is just only me.


Same for me it shows unavailable

IRetrouk51d ago

They are the ps4 pro modes, you don't select either because it now gives you the best of both modes on ps5 as standard.

Reaper993752d ago

What a lazy update, no reactive foliage, AF is unchanged, they could have bumped it to 16x. They just changed two lines of code to get it to run at 60FPS, so PC is still the best way to play. GG you are bloody disappointing.

EvertonFC52d ago

PC games look better? We get it. Move on ffs with the same old record.

Eonjay52d ago

Even today playing the game at 60FPS, this 2017 game looks better than most games and looks current gen. The FPS boost is all I wanted. Its the only real requested graphical feature.

Ron_Danger52d ago

Dude it’s a patch, not a remaster or a remake.

I swear some of you PC master race children really need to get over yourselves.

jukins52d ago

Most of these "pcmr" are juat xnox fanboys claiming to have a pc juat to say that their games "look better"

RaidenBlack51d ago

He was actually comparing the minute graphical effects that Guerilla added to the PC version.
A game doesn't need to be remastered for those little effects to be added. PC version got the reactive foliage via a small update only.
What OP meant to say in his first statement is Guerilla could've added those minor tweaks via the same patch/update, as it was already available in the PC version. This could've made the updated game a little more appealing.

babadivad51d ago

Has it released yet? Might power up my PS5 to download it. I don't think I got through a quarter of this game before I put it down.

Neonridr51d ago

don't listen to all of them. I love my PC, but I also enjoy my PS5 and Switch as well. He's clearly just trolling here.

babadivad51d ago

From all the down votes I got in my innocuous remark, I'm guessing 9 out of 10 people don't want me to power on my PS5 and finish Horizon 乁( •_• )ㄏ

Mr Logic52d ago

Sure, but speaking as someone with a fairly high end rig there's a 2 reasons I'm willing to dismiss the better graphics.

A) I already own it on PS.

B) I have a save file of 40+ hours. I'm not about to redo all of that.

Profchaos51d ago (Edited 51d ago )

Same I've got a more than capable PC but I'm finished hzd and half way through Ng+ no chance I'm starting again even if it's at 4k. I can't live without my regen armour now

Shiore2u52d ago (Edited 52d ago )

@EvertonFC @Ron_Danger
You two couldn't sound more insecure over such a general observation.

darthv7252d ago

i get what you are saying but... it's not that kind of update. It only unlocks the frame rate allowing the game to reach 60fps. What you are looking for would be something of a remaster type of upgrade.

Sunny_D52d ago

Bruh the game is almost 5 years old. GG are too busy developing the sequel to add all of that right now.

JEECE52d ago

Imagine getting upset that you got something for free because you wish you would have gotten more stuff for free.

AbyssCrawler51d ago

Yeah , this .. Spoiled children lol.

justadelusion52d ago

pc players who say stuff like this reminds me of a simpson tv char, you know the one

Ron_Danger52d ago (Edited 52d ago )

Worst… update… ever…

😂 love that guy

(Boy I wonder who keeps giving everyone a single downvote almost immediately after comment posts like the even matter 😂)

Ron_Danger52d ago

No love for the comic book guy I guess. Must’ve hit too close to home for some users.

Eonjay52d ago

Game was hardcoded to run at 30 so it was more than changing 2 lines of code.

Petebloodyonion51d ago

Last I checked they improve the loading time by a lot and it's now running at 60 FPS
So the way it see it, it's a way better version compared to the previous one.
Now If Sony would have to charged you for that then I would have agreed that it's a problem.

Profchaos51d ago

PC looks incredible yes but it came out years after the PS4 the ps5 edition is just a 60fps patch on the pro version with all the Dev time being directed to hfw I don't mind this approach

Aphelion8251d ago (Edited 51d ago )

Alt account for trolling. Logged in after 66 days just to trash this game. Why don't you use your main account to say what is on your mind??

frostypants51d ago

It's not an update, it's literally just an FPS patch. Since when is a free patch "lazy"? What are even you going on about?

Flakegriffin51d ago (Edited 51d ago )

"GG you are bloody disappointing"

If you're that heart broken over console players being able to enjoy a 60fps update then how about you, I don't know, play it on PC and get on with your life..
