New Horizon: Zero Dawn Screenshots and PS4 Pro Details

horizon-zero-dawn-11-01-16-3

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerrilla Games have both shard new details and screenshots for Horizon: Zero Dawn.

The new details cover the game’s PlayStation 4 Pro enhancements, like its higher resolution, better image quality, and more.

Featured above as well as below, you can view some new high resolution screenshots for the game:

Here’s a rundown for how PlayStation 4 Pro owners can expect the game to perform, via the PlayStation Blog:


  • Far better image quality for players who own standard 1080p HDTVs. This includes supersampling, a high-quality anti-aliasing technique that lets the game internally render at a higher resolution (close to 4K) before shrinking it down to the final 1080p resolution. This results in more detail, including smoother edges and a more stable image.
  • Shadow maps and antisotropic filtering quality enhancements. This technique increases the quality of texture sampling, resulting in more detailed environment textures.
  • Output at a much higher resolution for players who own 4K TVs. It is rendered at 2160p checkerboard. You’ll notice subtle details such as the stitching on Aloy’s outfit, individual leaves and branches swaying in the wind, kilometers away in the distance, and more detail in the machines and NPCs.
  • High-dynamic range support, which enhances the range of colors that are displayed.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is launching for PlayStation 4 on February 28th, while the PlayStation 4 Pro is launching on November 10th.

    Eh, I don’t care for the upgrades. This is one of the games they are trying to push Pro, but I doubt many people will upgrade.

    And why do I have a feeling that if this game were to be on the WiiU/Switch instead, you’ll be singing praises. Talk about sour grapes.

    AAA became a thing only recently? I have been reading PC magazines for almost 2 decades. The term AAA is not new.

    The whole “Image taken in 4K, your experience will be worse” thing is kind of obnoxious.

    Game looks cool though.

    If the frame rate is the same I don’t have a reason to upgrade.
    I’m not even sure if I want this game yet tho, it might be good but everything they’ve shown so far has been terribly scripted.

    Don’t forget the entire Half-Life series.

    western games made in one or two decades ago are completely different to the western games made these days

    HL2’s reedeming feature was the numerous mods it spawned.

    That definitely was one of its best features as its still spawning games today, but you didn’t like HL1 or HL2 as a single or multiplayer games?

    To be fair I’d probably give them about that. Doesn’t change the fact that he’s a dipshit though.

    Yeah..western games totally sucked like 10 or 20 or 30 years ago..like Doom..Killer Instinct..Sim City or Diablo.

    Western games never sucked in general. There were always good ones, just like many Japanese games sucked and continue to suck today. Not even the video game world was ever just black and white…

    I pretty much implied that western games back then were better though. Vidya field was also obvious better all around too, but the western side took a far more severe hit in this current decade than the japanese side

    I liked HL1. While HL2 wasnt bad, it could have been better in some parts if Valve didnt hire dumb playtesters or just went along with some designs, according to the commentaries

    So when they end support for updates, you’re shit out of luck on ever playing anything you don’t have installed. Yikes.
