Mass Effect Andromeda Is Currently Running at 1080p/30fps on PS4, Will Include HDR Support
Along with revealing that Mass Effect Andromeda won’t have a Season Pass, BioWare General Manager Aaryn Flynn confirmed HDR support for Andromeda on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One S, and PC:

In response to users who asked about Arabic support, Flynn replied, “Just heard that we will not support Arabic at launch. However, we can look into it as a future patch.”
On NeoGAF earlier this month, Flynn reiterated that Mass Effect Andromeda is running at 1800p with checkerboard rendering on PS4 Pro. He continued by saying regular PS4 owners should expect 1080p at 30 frames-per-second:
Last I checked, we were like other Frostbite games on PS4 and Xbox One – 1080p and 900p respectively. All are at 30 fps. PC has uncapped frame-rate. I think we’ve even gotten over the 30 fps cap in cut-scenes, but I’ll double-check in the next couple of weeks.
Mark Cerny detailed Andromeda’s PS4 Pro 1800p resolution last year with Eurogamer, adding, “Super-sampling again is very popular for HDTV support. Mass Effect Andromeda has two very different strategies. They have checkerboard for 4K and they have a separate mode for high quality graphics at 1080p.”
Mass Effect Andromeda releases on March 21 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
