Update (November 4)Ratchet & Clank update 1.06 is now live on PS4, Insomniac Games has announced.

Original Story: On or before November 10, Ratchet & Clank will receive an update that adds PlayStation 4 Pro support, Insomniac Games announced today. Additionally, the update will enable HDR (high dynamic range) on a regular PS4 or PS4 Slim if you have an HDR-enabled TV.

As Community Lead James Stevenson explained, Ratchet & Clank on PS4 Pro will play at a “much higher resolution” if you own a 4K TV, and if your TV supports it, in HDR using an HDMI 2.0 cable. If you have a 1080p TV, you’ll see a “big increase in gameplay image quality.”

He added:

The technique we’re using to get to those better resolutions is something we’re calling Temporal Injection. This allows us to not only hit a much higher resolution, but also to do it with jaggie-eliminating anti-aliasing as well. The extra resolution and HDR’s ability to display even more of the colorful Solana Galaxy should combine for the best image quality you’ve ever seen in a Ratchet & Clank game.

Saying they’re “really excited about the potential of the PS4 Pro and what it means for our games,” Stevenson mentioned their upcoming Spider-Man game when talking about how “PS4 Pro gives us the power to release our best-looking games ever.”

If you’re looking to buy Ratchet & Clank, it recently dropped in price to $19.99 USD.
