2 Prey finally gets the update 1.04 – Improve Graphics Fidelity but No support for Higher Resolutions

Today we’ll be talking about Prey and the latest 1.04 update that apparently not only brings quite a lot of fixes for the game but also some PlayStation Pro graphical enhancements. So, on Bethesda Official reddit page you can actually find this post where they actually go into more details about the actual changes to the game and there’s actually quite a long list of changes for PlayStation 4 Pro in terms of Graphical Fidelity.

Now first off please note that the game that the actual patch do not bring any resolution changes. So, it’s still 1080p game 30 frames per second on PlayStation Pro just like PlayStation 4. However, there are some changes in terms of like Graphical Fidelity so, let’s check the list:

The new update makes it looks different, but is it better? well that depends on the person who is looking at it. We don’t see any huge difference between the two, in some scenes it’s different and in some it’s not that huge difference, pretty much the same. In terms of the Graphical Fidelity there are some changes, which aren’t that huge. Anyway let us know what do you think about it in the comment section below.
