Capcom has confirmed that “Resident Evil 7” will be playable for the PlayStation 4 Pro and will fully support 4K resolution gaming with HDR. The announcement was made following the release of the PS4’s latest firmware update bringing HDR support to all versions of Sony’s console.
The PlayStation Pro was officially unveiled last week during Sony’s PlayStation Meeting event. The console is significantly more powerful than the original iteration of the PS4. The Pro comes with a thicker build and is powered by a faster CPU and an upgraded GPU with 4.2 TFLOPS of processing power which allows it to play game in 4K resolution with HDR.
All previously released PS4 games will be playable on the Pro console with the upgraded hardware slightly improving full HD 1080p resolution gaming. The Pro model is also able to deliver improved viewing quality for Sony’s PlayStation VR. The PlayStation Pro is scheduled to be released on Nov. 10 for $399.
“Resident Evil 7” is one of many upcoming games that will be able to take full advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro’s extra power. Other titles that have been confirmed to support 4K and HDR graphics include “Death Stranding”, “Battlefield 1”, “Mass Effect: Andromeda”, “FIFA 17” and “Watch Dogs 2,” according to Digital Trends.
Although Capcom has confirmed full PlayStation 4 Pro support for “Resident Evil 7,” the gaming firm has remained secretive of the game’s actual plot. Capcom has already released a playable teaser for the game, but the firm says that it won’t be part of the final game.
Capcom has also announced in-game bonus items for those who’ve already pre-ordered “Resident Evil 7.” The bonus items are mostly survival packs featuring ammo and recovery items. Lastly, the publisher has also confirmed that the game will not feature any micro-transactions, additional in-game items that can only be bought with real money.
