The Witness Receives PS4 Pro Support, Visual Modes and Features Detailed
HDR also enabled for PS4 and PS4 Slim.
Thelka Inc.’s first person adventure/puzzler The Witness is the latest game to receive PS4 Pro support via a new patch and it has quite the ensemble of features attached.
PS4 Pro support was planned since September and Thelka has finally locked down what features can be expected. For HD screens, you can expect output at 1080p resolution and 60 FPS with 4x MSAA. This is a pretty significant increase from 900p resolution, 60 FPS and 2x MSAA in the base PS4 version.
In 4K, you have two different modes: 1440p, 60 FPS and 2x MSAA with the text and UI in 4K or 4K, 30 FPS and 2x MSAA for the entire game and UI. There’s no input lag so you won’t suffer from 30 FPS when playing in 4K.
HDR support has also been enabled for normal PS4 and PS4 Slim consoles. Make sure you download the update and have an HDR compatible TV to take full advantage of the difference it makes.
