As the launch date for the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 game edges closer to October 26th, 2018. The official French Xbox Twitter account has confirmed that open-world adventure created by Rockstar Games will run at native 4K resolution and offer HDR support on Xbox One X console.
If you are equipped with a PlayStation 4 Pro who will be pleased to know that you can also benefit from enhanced graphics and optimise performance when compared to the standard PlayStation 4 console. “On PS4 Pro, 4K HDR TV owners will benefit from a stunningly sharp and detailed look (when compared to a PS4 system), as you live, ride and fight to survive as an outlaw in a notorious gang. HD TV owners will benefit from increased image clarity through the PS4 Pro’s Supersampling Mode (you can turn on Supersampling Mode in the PS4 Pro system settings menu). Meanwhile, if your TV supports high-dynamic range (HDR), you’ll experience the picturesque scenery of Red Dead Redemption 2 with an even more vibrant and dynamic range of colours (HDR features also available on PS4 system).”
