Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the first game to support HDR gaming


PlayStation 4’s 4.00 firmware update brings to the console the much lauded HDR gaming experience. Sony has hyped this latest addition as a way to boost the color performance of games rather than frame-rates or resolutions, greatly improving image quality. Best of all, you don’t need a PlayStation 4 Pro to experience it!

Those skeptical of Sony and Microsoft’s latest console plans can still experience the most exciting innovation without upgrading!

The problem is not a lot of games have jumped onto the bandwagon yet. As of now, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the first and only game to officially support HDR gaming, and it does so on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S, just in case Microsoft decides to add the feature in the future.

See below for Deus Ex’s update 1.05’s full list of firmware details and updates.

Bug fixes

  • Crash during the shooting range tutorial
  • After talking to Vega, a freeze would occur when the player left the poor District, after seeing Miller first
  • Koller’s fate after completing All in the Family, if the player spared Gallois
  • Exiting a tutorial during a flashbang\typhoon effect would cause the flashbang\typhoon effect to stay on screen permanently
  • Rarely, the hallway leading to Talos Rucker’s room would not stream in after reaching the top of the elevator
  • Saving on the base build while NPCs are in search state and updating to day one patch, would cause the NPCs to search forever on that save

New Breach content

  • Avatar customization (possibility to change the appearance of the Ripper in-game)
  • Overworld Map
  • New Santeau Corporation (New Maps and Darknet file)
  • New UI for avatar customization
  • New items: Premium Ripper Skins (2)
  • New item: Premium weapon (1)

The PC build, update 1.8, adds all of these features, but it does not yet support HDR gaming.
