Mass Effect Andromeda PS4 Pro Will Have High Visuals 1080p Mode And Unique Tempest Sequences – Insider

Tempest landing and exit sequences unique for each planet.

Industry insider shinobi602 is back at it again on NeoGAF, sharing new information on Bioware’s Mass Effect: Andromeda that’s out in March.

When it comes to the PS4 Pro version of the game, we already know it will run in some form of 4K come launch. However, according to shinobi602, “It’ll also have a high visuals 1080p mode.” That basically means improved visual effects and better details along with a hopefully better frame rate on 1080p screens.

One user pointed to a GIF of the Tempest, the new player ship, heading towards a planet and commented that this would be the loading screen when landing. Shinobi602 clarified that there would be unique landing and exit sequences for each planet, perhaps meaning different camera angles and occurrences while landing.

Mass Effect: Andromeda arrives on March 21st for Xbox One, PS4 and PC in North America and March 23rd in Europe. What are your thoughts on the game thus far? Let us know in the comments below.

    Frame rate was confirmed to be 30fps across the board on both PS4 consoles. Glad to hear about the high visuals mode at 1080p though. Playing the game at native 1080p with high-ultra settings sounds great

  • Terminator

    It can’t do 4K? So much for the Pro.

      What are you talking about? In such a small article it is impossible to miss the THIRD LINE: “When it comes to the PS4 Pro version of the game, we already know it will run in some form of 4K come launch.”

    • Terminator

      Some form isn’t native 4k

    • DEVILTAZ35 .

      Play Ratchet and Clank on a 4k tv on the pro. You have to look very very closely to see it is not native 4k even on a 65 inch 4k tv. Depending on the dev some are getting amazing results from checkerboard upscaling from 1440p. Most 4k tv’s support 1440p natively as well as 4k anyway plus scaling from 1440p works very well to 4k.
      Does this game support HDR? it seems like with it’s theme it would be breathtaking if it does.
      Skyrim is actually native 4k on the screen and manages to have a smooth framerate almost all the time. It just depends on the game. The main issue with the pro isn’t the gpu it is the overclocked CPU . Adding 30% to such a low tech CPU wasn’t going to garner too much of an advantage at 4k for instance.

      Hopefully Scorpio will offer something much better but what worries me is the lack of good exclusives from Microsoft and constant delays on games such as Crackdown 3 and cancellations such as Scalebound.

      It does upscaled 4K. Not real 4K, but it’s something.

    • Oberyn

      LOL – native 4K for $400? What planet do you live on? If you want native 4K you will need to build your own PC still for at least the next 5 years.

      If you look at the differences between the 1080p and 1800p checkerboard (ps4 v ps4 pro) screenshots they still look MUCH better. More than enough I think to justify a $100 upsell for the “Pro”.

    If they have any sense, they’ll give us a high frame rate option. Rise of the Tomb Raider has it, Nioh is going to have it, no reason why Mass Effect Andromeda shouldn’t have it.
