Rocket League PS4 Pro 4K Support Announced
Rocket League was the indie breakout hit on the PS4 and PC last year. The game combined racing and soccer into an immersive game with a unique set of physics. It’s an addicting game that has built a large community. The game was first released on the PC and PS4 initially and later released on the Xbox One. Now developer Psyonix has announced improvements for the PS4 Pro and base PS4.
The improvements bring 4K support to the PS4 Pro for two-player split-screen as well as individual modes. If you’re playing in three or four-player split mode, you’ll have get 60 fps with the same resolutions in “most arenas.”
PS4 Pro 4K support is only a few of the updates
Rocket League has continued to issue updates to the games maps, cars, and game-modes. The update to the resolution is a small, but welcomed update. We’re unsure if Rocket League will render in native 4K on the PS4 or if they’ll use the Pro’s ability to ‘upscale’ to 4K using their checkerboard rendering technique.
The Hot Wheels themed update includes the performance resolution upgrades. There are premium DLC Hot Wheel cars along with accessories for your cars in game drops. Everything in the February 21st update:
- Technical improvements for PS4
- Bug fixes and multiple performance optimizations
- A new “Player’s Choice” Crate voted on by fans which is filled with some of the favorite things from the community.
- More drops after matches with Hot Wheels-themed items, including both Antennas and Toppers.
- Premium DLC cars from Hot Wheels, Bone Shaker and Twin Mill III (sold separately).
The developer alludes to dozens of other updates and DLCs for the small indie game. The game is only $23 on Amazon for the PS4 collectors’ edition. With the 4K update and all the DLC’s, spending $25 on a game is a solid deal considering other titles run upwards of $100 for all the in-game content.
