The Last of Us is widely regarded as one of the best looking games of the last generation and was one of the first to be remastered/ported to the PS4 back in 2014. Now it gets to look even better with a new patch going live last night to prepare the game for running in 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro hardware. It also adds HDR into the mix and, thanks to the most recent PS4 firmware updates, that’s something every PS4 owner can use (you know, as long as you have a HDR TV).
The patch weighs in at 355.6MB – weren’t those the days when that was considered a big patch, eh? – with the three changes listed as adding PS4 Pro support, High Dynamic Range support and improving stereo audio quality.
Various NeoGAF members took to the forums to share comparison shots, and just one of these comparisons coming from someone named bananafactory. Obviously, these are off-screen photos taken by a camera, uploaded onto the internet and then you’re quite likely to be viewing them on a non-HDR screen… So, take them with a pinch of salt, but you get the general idea, I’m sure.
