PES 2017 will add 4K upgrade patch for PlayStation 4 Pro gaming in November
Stephan Jukic – October 19, 2016
Konami has unveiled its next couple of updates for Pro Evolution Soccer 2017. These will be coming out for free by November with the first emerging at the end of October and the second in late November.
The first of these new updates, for the end of October, will add improved face rendering for player avatars in the game. According to a Konami press release,
“The October file will recognise over 39 players who have excelled in the early part of the season, and will offer photo-realistic reproductions of the likes of Wissam Ben Yedder, Mario Lemina, Aymeric Laporte, Victor Wanyama, and Denis Suarez, and will also see their individual playing styles recreated within the game,”
The second PES 2017 update is the one which will feature 4K UHD support for the new PlayStation 4 Pro “4K gaming” console. Basically, the update will introduce a 4K resolution mode which will be ready for the game just a little while after the November 10th, 2016 release of the new 4K-graphics capable PlayStation 4 Pro console.
This will make PES 2017 one of a list of games which will be supported by the PS 4 Pro in higher-end graphics. Other console games with an upgrade patch for the new platform include Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, The Elder Scrolls Online, Fallout 4, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and a number of others as well further down the road.
Sony’s new PlayStation 4 Pro will go on sale November 10th for an expected price of $399 and will offer support for both HDR and 4K upscaling in many non-4K games while also offering or at least claiming to offer smooth high frame rate native 4K ultra HD graphics support in some games.
Konami for its part says that in addition to the two updates mentioned above, there will be “the introduction of key elements centered on Konami’s premier partnership teams: Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.”. Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium will be added to the game and there will also be the addition of more realistic, relevant chanting from stadium audiences.
