Detroit: Become Human PS4 Pro Enhancements and Technical Specifications Revealed

At GDC 2018, Quantic Dream developers delivered two presentations in which they detailed the technology used in Detroit: Become Human. During the panels, the studio also revealed the game’s PlayStation 4 Pro enhancements.

In the first presentation, we learn that Quantic Dream used new technology to develop Detroit, and prioritized graphics over frame rate.

● 1080p at 30 FPS

● Volumetric lighting: 192x108x64

● Support HDR TV

PS4 Pro

● 2160p checkerboard at 30 FPS

● GUI in full 2160p
