The European PlayStation blog put up a post today that outlined their plans to add a trio of games to the PS4 Pro. Two of these titles have yet to be released whereas the third, Sine Mora Ex, came out on August 8th. Volitions’ highly promoted open-world shooter Agents of Mayhem will get the Pro treatment when it drops on August 15th. And not to be left out of the uprgading racket, Codemasters’ racing sim F1 2017 will release on August 25th.
Sine Mora Ex is a horizontal shoot-em-up that boasted impressive boss battles and a deep narrative. With the PS Pro upgrades players can expect a boost in resolution to 3840 x 2160 which will be running at 60 FPS. The particle physics are also getting a tune up so the game’s various bullets, explosions, and other bombastic elements will look even more impressive.
The PS4 Pro is also tackling the crazy Saints Row spin-off, Agents of Mayhem. All the wacky, G.I. Joe-esque characters will be receiving a heavy amount of polish with increases to level of detail and anisotropic filtering. The hardware will be pushing towards a ‘high of 60FPS’ and an HD resolution at 1920 x 1080. Also improved are the amount of pedestrians and vehicles on screen at once, the quality of shadows, and the color depth.
Finally, racing fans will be happy with the attention to detail that the PS4 Pro will bring to F1 2017. Shadows and and reflections are set to be much more dynamic as well as track shaders. Also, as the blog states:
“[The game will have] full support for high dynamic range (HDR) that delivers more crisp, true-to-life colours and a brighter, more natural representation of real-world lighting conditions – all delivered super-smooth 60FPS.”
It’s nice to see smaller titles like Sine Mora Ex getting some love. We’ll just have to wait to see who will receive the graphical/resolution makeover next time.
