The other PS4 Pro modes of RofTR

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration does not only feature 4K resolution on PS4 Pro, but ads 2 other graphics settings to choose from. You can either play the game with more details at 1080p/30fps or enhance the framerate (still at 1080p), by simply unlocking it. As you'll see, neither solution is absolutely perfect, but it's nice to be given the choice.

RotTR with much less aliasing

One of the technical issues which has made rise of the Tomb Raider less impressive in terms of visuals was the aliasing it suffered from, on PC and consoles. With the PS4 Pro and the 4K mode, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration looks sharper, though it comes at a price as framerate is not always steady. That being said, the 2 other graphics modes (Enriched Visuals and High Framerate) are not all smooth either. it's especially disappointing with the High framerate mode, as it is clearly around 30 - or less - more than it is close to 60. We'll never understand why some people think that unsteady framerate is better than a perfectly locked 30 fps refresh rate.

The publisher announced that the game will include three modes: 4K Resolution, High Framerate, and Enriched Visuals. The first one speaks for itself and will make the game run at 4K/30fps while HFR will run at 1080 and push the framerate above 30fps "with a target of 60 fps". The latter mode will keep the game at 1080p/30fps but will enhance graphical features of the title.

    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (12 Hours ago)
