James Stevenson Community Lead at Insomniac Games has today announced that the development team have been working on a new Ratchet And Clank PlayStation 4 Pro update which will soon be made available on the PlayStation platform.
The Ratchet & Clank PlayStation 4 Pro content will be a free software update to support the additional processing power that is on offer with the PlayStation 4 Pro and will be available prior to or on the launch date of the PS4 Pro. The PS4 Pro will be available to purchase from November 10th for $399 – £349 or AU$559.
More about the new update is explained over on the official PlayStation Blog
For users 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. PS4 Pro users with a 1080p TV will see a big increase in gameplay image quality as well. The technique we’re using to get to those better resolutions is something we’re calling Temporal Injection. This allows us to not only hit a much higher resolution, but also to do it with jaggie-eliminating anti-aliasing as well. The extra resolution and HDR’s ability to display even more of the colorful Solana Galaxy should combine for the best image quality you’ve ever seen in a Ratchet & Clank game.
We’re really excited about the potential of the PS4 Pro and what it means for our games. From Ratchet & Clank (PS4) to our upcoming game with Marvel Entertainment, Spider-Man (working title), PS4 Pro gives us the power to release our best-looking games ever.
