No downgrade except for what you want to see.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

Recently, some comparisons have been doing the rounds on social media, showcasing what appears to be a rather significant downgrade in the graphics of Sony’s upcoming flagship exclusive. This threatened to spark off a controversy, since this generation has been full of notable examples of games over-promising and under-delivering on graphical capability- including Guerrilla Games themselves with Killzone Shadow Fall.

However, with Horizon, it as a false alarm. Responding to the allegations of a downgrade, Guerrilla Games explained on Twitter that both the videos in the comparison demonstrating the alleged downgrade ‘are captured from the same build; one running in English and the other in Chinese.’ This means that there is literally no downgrade beyond what you want to see.

So, that should put all of that speculation to rest. With Horizon, anyway, it will probably be more about how the game plays than how it looks- and it looks like it will play very, very well.

    If it’s not downgraded to 720p sub 30fps like quantum break from the claimed 1080p, it will be fine

  • Psionicinversion

    yeah just like witcher 3 wasnt downgraded to eh!!!

  • Somebodysomewhere

    Theres’ been no downgrade, confirmed my a$$.
    Go to YouTube and type in Horizon Zero Dawn 4k. Any of the 4K videos will show what it’ll really look like, at least on Pro. Base PS4…it’s possible a small downgrade has happened.

    • Clint Hoffman

      Unless you can prove the recording devices used can accurate capture full quality 4k AND you are watching those videos on a 4K full resolution system with full support, then (and only then) would you be able to state any confirmed change in quality.
      Not picking at you, but it is unbelievable how many people look at garbage (or high quality vids) and view them on a 1080p platform then vent opinions on the ‘its the same quality’ or ‘its totally not 4k!’ items they see.

    • Somebodysomewhere

      I’m watching those videos on a PS4 Pro connected to a 100″ Sony Z9D tv (4K HDR). It looks great on my tv anyway, I’m not sure why it’d look much worse than that when playing the actual game?

    • Clint Hoffman

      At 4k the only way it will look worse than the game is if the recording software is using compression. Raw or a very high quality stream should be used…I don’t know if that is the case on any of those youtube videos. Not saying I’m right, but when I take things to task and want to see apples to apples all points of must be verified.

    • Somebodysomewhere

      All I’m saying is it looks absolutely phenomenal, at least to my eyes with my setup. I don’t see any downgrade at all and there has been many new vids released today, with a few short ones in 4K on Pro. I’m just ecstatic here lol

    • Somebodysomewhere

      Should add, I’m watching them in YouTube app on Pro (it has full 4K playback).

  • Orion Pax

    what contrary reports re-t@rd?

  • Joseu David Lozano Villalobos

    Same words used for Second Son despite having obvious downgrade in all departments and supposedly only the lighting was changed a bit
