NieR: Automata Looks Gorgeous on PS4 Pro in 36 Minutes of 1080p, 60 FPS Gameplay from the Demo

on December 22, 2016 3:37 PM

The demo of NieR: Automata is finally out on PS4, bringing about 35 minutes of quick and stylish gameplay to gamers on PlayStation. If you’re curious to see how it looks on PS4 Pro, and haven’t yet had the chance to grab the souped up console to check on your own, you have come to the right place.

The video at the bottom of the post was captured at full 1080p, 60 FPS via an Elgato Game Capture HD60, and it lets you see just how smooth the demo plays. We can certainly say that it’s PlatinumGames in its best form, and if the game is as good as the demo all the way through, we’re really in for a tasty treat.

Whether you’re on PS4 Pro or on standard PS4, you can find the North American version here, and the European version here, for roughly 4.4 gigabytes of download. Both version include dual audio, Japanese and English, and a whole lot of fun.

If you’re curious to see the difference between the image quality on PS4 Pro and on standard PS4, you can check out our dedicated comparison article. The game looks beautiful on both consoles, but PS4 Pro definitely does a much better job in keeping aliasing at bay.

Incidentally, I’m quite sure I’m not the only one to feel that YoRHa 2B might be the most charming heroine I have played in quite a long while. Maybe I have a thing for androids, but we have to give props to Akihiko Yoshida, Taro Yoko, and PlatinumGames for designing her. They managed to make her expressive without even showing her eyes. That’s a great job done right there.

If Youtube’s compression doesn’t do it for you, you can also check out your usual screenshot bomb, with 166 screenshots for your perusal.
