Following the announcement of the PS4 Pro, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix released new screenshots and a trailer of Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, announcing three different modes that will let PS4 Pro users enhance their visuals on the new console.

The three modes are “4K Resolution,” “High Frame Rate,” and “Enriched Visuals.” 4K Resolution displays the game at 4K/30 FPS. High Frame Rate pushes frame rate towards 60 at 1080p, while Enriched Visuals includes enhanced graphics in the old 1080p/30 FPS combo.

“Sony officially unveiled their new gaming console today – the PlayStation 4 Pro – available November 10, 2016. Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration was featured at their New York event, showcased as one of the first 4K games on console. Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration launches on October 11, 2016, and will be compatible with the PlayStation 4 Pro.

With the PlayStation 4 Pro’s additional horsepower, we’ve been able to add graphical enhancements such as improved reflections, more dynamic foliage, and detailed tessellation. These features heighten the experience and further immerse players in Lara’s first Tomb Raiding expedition.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration on the PlayStation 4 Pro will include three modes: 4K Resolution, High Framerate, and Enriched Visuals, allowing you to customize your experience. 4K Resolution displays the game in 4K Resolution, on supported 4K TVs, in 30 fps. High Framerate pushes the framerate above 30 fps at 1080p with a target of 60 fps for an even smoother gameplay experience. Enriched Visuals enhances graphical features of the game for a lusher and more realistic experience, in 1080p at 30 fps.”
