Dishonored 2 is among the first titles to support PlayStation 4 Pro and, being the game one of the best out there this generation, expectations upon this specific version were pretty high. Was it good enough to make you desire to have a PS4 Pro, though? Digital Foundry provides some quite good answers to this question.
Unluckily, PlayStation 4 Pro isn’t as good as you may hope. On a 4K TV you get native 1440p, but this version doesn’t offer any advantage for those gamers playing it on regular 1080p monitors. The weirdest thing is that the only way to get 1440 downsampled to 1080p is to start the game in 4K and switch to 1080p with the game still running.
No downsampling will occur at all for 1080p TV owners, and this is likely to be a bug, hopefully to be fixed soon, as we haven’t seen anything like this in other PS4 Pro launch titles. Wrapping it up, and looking at all the Dishonored 2 versions out there, we have this:
- Xbox One: 1280×900 – 1600×900 TAA
- PlayStation 4: 1700×1080 – 1920×1080 TAA (dynamic resolution drops rarely observed)
- PlayStation 4 Pro: 2560×1440 TAA with 2160p output selected, otherwise 1080p native
