The Witness is getting a PS4 Pro patch, and Jonathan Blow has released all the details about what to expect.
PS4 Pro is out in almost a week, and some games that have already been released are getting patched to support the new machine. The Witness is one of these games, and will offer various options depending on what type of TV you have. Writing on his blog, developer Jonathan Blow has outlined what PS4 Pro purchasers can expect.
First off, The Witness will support HDR on both the PS4 Pro, the original PS4, and the PS4 Slim models. HDR is a feature available on every PS4 model, meaning anyone will be able to play The Witness with HDR. If the console is hooked up to an HDR capable TV, The Witness will automatically start in HDR mode.
Those who have their PS4 Pro connected to a 1080p TV will get a native 1080p, 60fps, 4x MSAA experience. The base PS4 version runs at 900p, 60fps, 2x MSAA. So even if you don’t have a 4K TV you’ll still get an upgrade.
Finally, those who have a 4K TV have two different options to choose from:
- 1440p, 2x MSAA upscaled to 4K running at 60fps
- Native 4K, 2x MSAA running at 30fps
The patch doesn’t have a release date yet, but Blow does expect it to come out sometime in November. In the meantime, the PS4 Pro is set to launch November 10.
