At the same event in New York where Sony confirmed the details of the PS4 Pro, they also showed off some of the games using the updated resolution, utilising the extra graphical effects, and improved frame rates. Please note also in addition to this games can benefit from this never mind if the game is being played in 4K or 1080p.
It has been known for a while before the event that some already released games will receive and update, and some will come out of the box ready for the PS4 Pro. Currently it is not known on how every game will benefit from the updates being released for them, however, Mark Cerny did release some information on a couple of games.
The games he released some information on were;
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor – The PS4 Pro update of this will be running a 1080p display, but will utilise super sampling anti-aliasing.
Paragon – The PS4 Pro update on Paragon will also be running a 1080p display, but will utilise more the extra power. This will receive enhanced visual effects, procedural ground cover, higher scene complexity, greater texture fidelity, and dynamic reflections.
The Witness – The update will allow this to support both 4K and 1080p display, but each resolution will get different benefits. If you activate it at 4K, you will get a 1440p or possibility higher up-scaled to 4K display with a constant 60 fps, and text, menus and other user interfaces will display at native 4k. But, If you choose 1080p, you will get 1080p instead of the 900p currently given, and an increased anti-aliasing quality from X2 to X4 MSAA, and the solid 60 fps.
As well as the above games, there has been a number of confirmed games that are getting the upgrade. Please see a list of all these below, but it is yet known what the update will do for these games yet.
