Hitman Gets HDR Support on January 31

[embedded content] On January 31, Io-Interactive will release a Hitman update that adds High Dynamic Range (HDR) support on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One S, and PC, “allowing for more vibrant graphics.” Programmer Anders Wang Kristensen explained that HDR allows the player to see outside a bright window while standing in a dark room: As an example, think of 47 in a dark room looking out a bright window. Without HDR you would not be able make out what’s outside, whereas with HDR you can simultaneously see details inside the room and outside the window. Another extreme example is the sun. Without HDR we could not render the sun brighter than a white piece of paper, so we had to ‘simulate’ the sun being blinding. With HDR we can draw the sun several times brighter, so that it is actually close to being blinding, just like in real life. Hitman’s PS4 Pro support, added in November, increases the overall resolution, reduces aliasing, improves reflective surfaces, and adds more detailed lighting effects. You’ll also find the UI is rendered natively in 4K. If you don’t have a 4K TV, “the image will be downsampled to 1080p to benefit from higher quality READ FULL STORY…
