Titanfall 2 will benefit from the PlayStation 4 Pro’s extra power.
Speaking with Executive Producer Drew McCoy, Stevivor indicates that the PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game will have a more stable 60fps frame rate.
It will also have a more stable resolution. Titanfall 2 features resolution scaling on all consoles. That means that the resolution is reduced during high strain moments to maintain the framerate. The PlayStation 4 Pro will maintain the top resolution at 60fps more regularly than other consoles.
Titanfall 2 won’t run native 4K, however. That was never in the cards.
Titanfall 2 is the tip of the spear for improved games on iterated consoles
As we enter the age of the PlayStation 4 Pro next month (and the Xbox One Scorpio next year), we can expect to see a lot of subtle improvement like this. I say “subtle” because more solid frame rates and resolutions are indicative of a mid-cycle refresh instead of a complete hardware update.
Titanfall 2 will run better on the PlayStation 4 Pro, but it won’t run best. That’s reserved, of course, for the PC. I find that distinction interesting.
Will more stable frames and resolutions get you playing this on the PS4 Pro?
