Rocket League To PS4 Pro Support Update On February 21st

Increasing that horsepower.

Psyonix has confirmed that it will be releasing an update so Rocket League will support PS4 Pro features, with this going live on February 21st. This update means the game will run at 1080p at 60fps on the standard PS4 while this is upped to 4K at 60fps on the Pro. This will be seen in all arenas in single player and two player split screen, while for three and four player split screen only some of the arenas will boast the same attributes.

At the same time the Hot Wheels DLC, which was announced last week, will be available to purchase on the same day.

    Is it native 4K or just upscaled from something lower, some devs have been sneaky with their wording on this one

      They said 4K and then admitted it was using the checkerboard thing (on the US blog).

      Presumably saying 4K while admitting that elsewhere is some sort of attempt to avoid a bunch of pedantic fkwits complaining it’s not really 4K and they can magically see some sort of difference while wonky physics is throwing cars all over the place. Presumably these people sit as close to their TV as possible and don’t actually play the game, just look at it going “Ooooh, it’s not proper 4K!”

        Pot. Kettle. You’re as guilty as any other for going into the whole resolution argument. You’ve done posts where you’ve even worked out the difference in % of pixels between 720, 900 and 1080!

        That’s only because there’s an obvious difference between 720 (or a weird 900) and 1080.

        How much of a difference is anyone going to notice between a “native” 4K and “1080 or above upscaled to 4K”? Assuming you’re not sat right in front of the TV? Which would be really inconsiderate if you’re playing Rocket League in split screen, obviously.

        If they’re trying to sell upscaled 4k as true 4k then that’s misleading customers, some diehard rocket league fans might even decide to upgrade to ps4 pro because of this news.

        And yes, there most definitely is a perceptible difference between upscaled and native 4k, even at normal viewing distances.
