For those of you who own a PS4 Pro and were hoping to see different types of tech “pro” options in Borderlands 3, you’re in luck as it has been confirmed that Borderlands 360fps (frames per second) support is possible on the PS4 Pro, among other options to suit your needs.
Talking to the PS Blog, Online & Social Product Owner for Borderlands 3, Scott Velasquez took to answering a short Q&A session performed by Playstation.One of the big highlights was that Scott detailed the different graphical modes, which you can read up below.
…players will be able to choose between “favor resolution” and “favor performance” on the PS4 Pro through a new setting called Graphics Preference. When “favor resolution” is selected, we aim for the highest resolution possible, capping framerate at 30 frames per second. In “favor performance” mode, we increase the framerate cap to 60 frames per second and render at 1080P.
And for those who don’t own a 4K TV set, you can still take advantage of the resolution feature as the Pro will supersample the image to make the picture more sharper as explained by Scott.
One interesting note is that when favoring resolution on a TV that only supports 1080p, the game will supersample from the higher resolution using the console’s hardware. Because of this, the 1080p output will look sharper in this mode than it normally would, again thanks to the power of the PS4 Pro.
In addition to the 4K support the game will also feature HDR support that will also work on 1080p sets that support HDR and even 4K sets for users who opt in to using the 1080p, 60fps option instead. From the comments made on the blog, it does sound like we will be able to turn off the HDR if we happen to not like the way it looks.
This news is certainly good, as many titles have been releasing as of late with Pro support, but no options to toggle between any specific mode, meaning we are forced to use whatever set option said specific game is using. This has certainly become an annoyance among Pro owners as some would prefer to take the lower resolution if it meant a boost in performance.
