Guerilla Games recently announced that the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West has officially been delayed to next year, but fans can enjoy Horizon Zero Dawn on Sony’s next-gen hardware with some new improvements. Check out our video below to see a comparison between PS4 Pro and PS5’s framerates and load times.
The PS4 Pro’s favor performance mode aims for a 30 fps target, and does a great job at sticking to it. The PS5 – on the other hand – doubles the framerate while keeping all resolution and graphical settings intact. It’s possible to see a frame drop here and there, but the PS5 does a solid job at sticking to its target – which isn’t surprising considering the hardware’s horsepower.
Load times have similarly seen an improvement too – as the PS5 loaded into the game in just under 30 seconds while the PS4 Pro took a little more than a minute to do the same. Of course, the fact that the game is running in backwards compatibility mode on the PS5 doesn’t allow for the best usage of the SSD – but it remains a noticeable improvement nevertheless.
