PlayStation 4 Pro releases on November 10th, providing developers with a more powerful alternative to the standard model. This boost in hardware allows for visual improvements, including support for HDR and 4K. Sony has indicated that most PlayStation 4 games will upscale to 4K rather than running at that resolution natively (an admission Microsoft has been eager to point out), but we now know of at least one game that serves as an exception.
Bethesda announced today that both
Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4 will be enhanced on PlayStation 4 Pro, and that Skyrim will render natively at 4K. Skyrim launches a couple of weeks before PlayStation 4 Pro on October 28th, but it will be compatible with the upcoming console at launch. Bethesda also expects to take advantage of enhanced lighting and graphics features, including 4K (although native isn’t specified), with Fallout 4 on PlayStation 4 Pro.
