This Viral Ride 4 PS5 Footage Showcases Incredible Next-Gen Photorealism

A video of Milestone’s Ride 4 running on the PlayStation 5 has gone viral due to its incredible next-gen photorealism.

YouTuber Joy of Gaming (thanks, ResetEra) published the video below, which is running in 4K with 60 frames-per-second and HDR turned on. Seeing is believing, so check it out for yourself below.

Milestone certainly wasn’t kidding when it claimed in September 2020 that Ride 4 will take races to “a whole new level” on the PS5.

“PS5’s specifications are incredibly inviting for a racing franchise like Ride, where players expect to experience the excitement of riding a 200 HP bike in fast-paced, adrenaline-filled races all over the world,” Milestone said at the time. “We will now be able to deliver a smoother gameplay experience at 60FPS with a resolution up to 4K. That means players will be able to enjoy their beloved bikes with the highest quality for shaders and textures, with a never before seen level of detail for both bikes and environments. Your riding experience will also be more precise, satisfying and natural.”

We sure see that now.

PlayStation LifeStyle reviewed Ride 4‘s PS4 version last October and praised the game for its steady performance. This viral footage has fans wanting to go back for yet another ride on the current-gen console.

Ride 4‘s PS5 version also takes advantage of the SSD to reduce loading times and utilizes the DualSense to make the experience more realistic. “Gas and brake levers will have their own resistance to transmit the same sensations as their real-life counterparts,” according to Milestone.
