Today, Io-Interactive confirmed that HITMAN will support High Dynamic Range (HDR) beginning January 31st, 2017.
HITMAN will support HDR displays via a game update when the full experience comes to retail at the end of the month. HITMAN already supports 4K on the recently released PS4 Pro, with the introduction of support for Xbox One S owners, allowing for more vibrant in-game graphics.
“As an example, think of 47 in a dark room looking out a bright window. Without HDR you would not be able make out what’s outside, whereas with HDR you can simultaneously see details inside the room and outside the window,” explained Anders Wang Kristensen IOI Programmer.
“Another extreme example is the sun. Without HDR we could not render the sun brighter than a white piece of paper, so we had to ‘simulate’ the sun being blinding. With HDR we can draw the sun several times brighter, so that it is actually close to being blinding, just like in real life.”
HITMAN – The Complete First Season comes to retail January 31st for Xbox One and PS4.
