The upcoming update for the sports-action multiplayer video game "Rocket League" will support 4K at 60 frames per second (fps) both on PlayStation 4 Pro (PS4 Pro) and the standard PlayStation 4 (PS4) version, allowing the game consoles to run the game in 1080p at 60 fps and to provide a much clearer resolution. The update will also include the split- screen and the single-player modes.
According to a PlayStation Blog post, players will be able to see games running at 60 fps in almost all game areas and at the same resolutions even when they are playing with three or four players. However, video game developer Psyonix reportedly cannot guarantee that the frame rates will be applicable in every arena in the game.
Psyonix was only investigating the possibility of developing a PS4 Pro patch, but they never actually committed to releasing one. The next update will include technical improvements, several performance optimizations and bug fixes specific to PS4. It will also feature a newly created Players Choice Crate based on fan votes, complete with some of the player's most favorite game items.
The "Rocket League" patch is scheduled for release on Feb. 21 along with "Hot Wheels" downloadable content (DLC). According to GameSpot, the Hot Wheels- themed game items will be free of any charge. The two new "Hot Wheels" DLC, however, will be sold separately.
Meanwhile, Engadget reported that players should also expect other games such as "Hitman," "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" and "Fallout 4" to get enhanced textures and renderings as soon as players upgrade their PS4 console to the latest patch with Boost Mode.
Psyonix is also reportedly planning to release other content updates for "Rocket League" this year.
