The Evil Within 2 has received a patch which, among other things, enables support for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
Launching last month, The Evil Within 2 launched without 4K support on consoles – disappointing for fans who like their blood guts in glorious 4K resolution.
The latest update for the game, version 1.02, has added the option not just to play the game at a higher resolution, but also with an unlocked frame rate to boot.
It is one of many games that have included the option as we are now well into the mid-cycle console upgrade season.
With the Xbox One X looming large, and the PS4 Pro already off to a great start, the importance of 4K resolutions and crisper frame rates will grow as the technology proliferates. Of course, the success of these upgrades depends on players having 4K screens to play on; one begets the other.
Survival horror is certainly the kind of immersive experience where heightened detail and more sumptuous lighting enhance the experience massively.
The Evil Within 2 launched to largely positive reviews, and sees the directorial debut of John Jonas – a colleague of Shinji Mikami’s, who directed the first game. Jonas previously worked on the first game’s DLC.
