Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration + PlayStation 4 Pro = success?
Crystal Dynamics‘ game will support the stronger PlayStation 4, which makes sense; in the late nineties, Tomb Raider was one of the main franchises of the PS1. (Not on the PS2, though – Angel of Darkness was… let’s say, terrible.)
Rise of the Tomb Raider will offer three graphical options on PlayStation 4 Pro. The first one is 4K Resolution: 3840×2160 resolution with thirty frames per second. (The game is unlikely to run on native 4K – Horizon: Zero Dawn is confirmed to not run natively on 4K either!) The second one is Enriched Visuals: 1080p, 30fps. The third one is High Frame-rate: 1080p with 60fps as the target, although Crystal Dynamics said that they might not get sixty frames per second at all times; the frame rate should be above 45 at all times. (That could be annoying, though. However, Mass Effect Andromeda targets 30 FPS, too.)
The game is out on October 11, and the PS4 Pro support steps in on November 10.
