Ratchet & Clank: PS4 Pro Update Coming Soon; is Not Native 4K

on November 3, 2016 8:23 AM

Today, Insomniac Games revealed that its Ratchet & Clank PS4 Pro free update will be available on or prior to the launch date of PS4 Pro.

For all you special gamers with a 4K TV, you’ll be able to play Ratchet & Clank at a much higher resolution, and if your TV supports it, in HDR using an HDMI 2.0 cable. Supposedly, PS4 Pro users with a 1080p TV will see a substantial increase in gameplay image quality as well.

To get these better resolutions Insomniac has said it is using a technique called Temporal Injection — not checkerboarding. This allows the developer to not only hit a much higher resolution, but also to do it with “jaggie-eliminating anti-aliasing as well.”

Sadly, this all means there will be no native 4K. Additionally, both versions will maintain their 30 frames per second performance.

The new update will also usher in HDR support as well, which will allow for an even more colorful Solana Galaxy. Something I personally thought not possible.

Here are some new screens showing off the game running at 4K on the PS4 Pro:
