HITMAN gets even better looking…
HDR support confirmed
COPENHAGEN, January 19, 2017 – Io-Interactive is pleased to confirm that HITMAN will support High Dynamic Range (HDR) from January 31st, 2017.
Allowing for more vibrant graphics, HITMAN will support HDR displays via a game update when the disc launches.
IOI Programmer Anders Wang Kristensen explains:
” As an example, think of 47 in a dark room looking out a bright window. Without HDR you would not be able make out what’s outside, whereas with HDR you can simultaneously see details inside the room and outside the window. Another extreme example is the sun. Without HDR we could not render the sun brighter than a white piece of paper, so we had to ‘simulate’ the sun being blinding. With HDR we can draw the sun several times brighter, so that it is actually close to being blinding, just like in real life.”
HITMAN – The Complete First Season also supports 4k resolution, offering the latest visual and technical enhancements on the PS4 Pro.
Become the Master Assassin in this intense spy-thriller story.
