Back in April of this year, Insomniac Games released a reboot of the famous Ratchet and Clank series, partially to bring the series back and partially to promote the game’s companion movie (which unfortunately didn’t do well, much like Warcraft that summer). However, the Playstation 4 Pro Ratchet and Clank version has good news.
According to a statement by Insomniac, the game is going to get upgraded from its normal graphics and framerate in order to be put on the Playstation 4 Pro, allowing fans of the duo to be able to experience the game’s colorful atmosphere with a new sort of clarity.
You also don’t have to worry if you don’t have a 4K TV, because you’ll notice a difference in graphics quality even if you only have a regular 1080p TV. This is all thanks to something that Insomniac is calling “Temporal Injection”, a process that allows Insomniac to not only up the resolution for the Playstation 4 Pro Ratchet and Clank, but also to help with anti-aliasing.
Considering that Insomniac is going to be helping Marvel Entertainment develop a brand-new Spiderman game (which was announced at this year’s E3), making the game look good with its Temporal Injection technology could do a lot in making games on the Playstation 4 Pro look even better.
Temporal Injection will cause the game to not render natively at 4K, however, and the game will run at 30 frames per second on both 4K and 1080p TVs, though the anti-aliasing helps to smooth out a lot of the graphics. Even then, with the lack of native 4K in the Playstation 4 Pro Ratchet and Clank, the Playstation 4 Pro, Playstation 4, and Playstation 4 Slim will all also have High Dynamic Ranging to help with their visuals and lighting.
The Playstation 4 Pro will be coming out later this month, while the Playstation 4 Slim has been out for the past two months.
