After the reveal of the PlayStation 4 Pro last month, developer Tripwire Interactive revealed that Killing Floor 2 would be taking advantage of the console's more powerful hardware. It was a pretty vague statement. A new trailer went up that provides a little more info about what those enhancements will be.
One of the big points Sony has made about the PS4 Pro is that while developers could tap into the better resources of the hardware to improve graphics or enable more players in a game mode (e.g., supporting 8 players online instead of 4), they could not offer new or different features. In other words, any title that's released for the PlayStation 4 has to have the same modes and feature sets as the version for the PS4 Pro. Thus, the enhancements for Killing Floor 2 are all graphical in nature.
The PlayStation®4 Pro version of KILLING FLOOR 2 features the following enhancements:
- 1800p checkboard rendering on 4K TV (3200x1800) optimized for 4K TVs
- Effectively supersampling and increased fps on HDTV
- Using additional memory to increased texture resolution to "Ultra Textures"
If you have a computer monitor (and graphics card) that supports 4k output, then you can check out what all of that looks like in action with the latest trailer. (Note: you'll have to click through to the actual video to see it as the embedded videos definitely won't be in 4k)
Killing Floor 2 releases next month on November 18 for the PC and PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro. It supports up to six players online, and will retail for $39.99.
