Naughty Dog is behind some of the most atmospheric and immersive games in recent console history. Fans will now be able to experience two of the developer’s top titles, Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered, like never before thanks to the power of the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Writing in a blog post. Naughty Dog tells us that when they first learned about the PS4 Pro, the prospect of being able to add even higher “fidelity and immersion in our games” excited them. They also make it clear that they, as a developer, hold the key to a good player experience being in the detail, even down to the smallest thing. That helps “establish that emotional connection and sense of immersion.”
According to Naughty Dog, the PlayStation 4 Pro will bring a greater sense of depth and scale to the action. This certainly helps Uncharted 4, with the game’s wide sweeping landscapes and exotic locations. It will also bring additional realism to the derelict and overgrown towns and cities of The Last of Us Remastered, as the added detail gives a much better sense of scale and distance, thanks to sharper edges of in-world objects, even when viewed in motion.
“The PS4 Pro has allowed us to meaningfully increase the resolution so that you’ll not only appreciate more detail in the textures, but smoother, sharper edges that better distinguish characters, effects, and the environment.”
Naughty Dog boast that for those with a 4K television, Uncharted 4 can be experienced at 1440p, up from 1080p on the PS4. The Last of Us Remastered offers a choice of lower frame rate of 30fps and outstanding 2160p definition, or an increased 60fps running at 1800p.
“Whether you own a 4K HDR display, normal 4K display, or even just a 1080p display, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of the PS4 Pro with our new game updates. Though, once you’ve seen them in 4K HDR, it might be hard to go back to anything else.”
All in all, Naughty Dog’s two superb games will be enhanced by the PlayStation 4 Pro for everyone lucky enough to experience them on it. The developers are calling for players to join the community and share their ultra-HD discoveries, be it a screenshot or video, via their submission platform here.
