Is Hitman 2 PS4 Pro Enhanced? What You Need to Know
Hitman 2 has finally arrived, doing away with the episodic format of its predecessor in favor of offering a complete story for players to run through at their own pace from day one. The game will see you visiting a number of locations from around the world once again, assassinating targets in creative ways as you go. From Mumbai to Miami, Himmelstein to Whittleton Creek, the open world levels of Hitman 2 look nothing short of stunning, and that might have people wondering if it’s PS4 Pro enhanced.
Well, we’re pleased to tell you that yes, Hitman 2 is PS4 Pro enhanced. The extent to which, however, seems to be a little unclear. The official page for the game on the PlayStation website doesn’t actually list the game as being PS4 Pro enhanced.
However, from our time playing Hitman 2 on PS4 Pro we spotted a ‘Framerate’ option within the settings, suggesting the additional power can be used to focus on smoothing out the framerate rather than optimizing the resolution. This is alongside the option to toggle HDR on and off, though this is not a PS4 Pro-specific enhancement.
If you’re wondering how to enable the ‘Framerate’ option, we’ve broken down how to access the setting down below.
How to Prioritize Framerate in Hitman 2 on PS4 Pro
- From the Main Menu, scroll to the right to the Options menu.
- Select the Graphics Menu from here.
- Select the Framerate option and toggle it to Unlocked.
Doing so will enable the framerate in Hitman 2 to be variable, but up to 60 FPS. Selecting the ‘Locked’ option will limit the framerate to just 30fps, in favor of improving the resolution.
Outside of that, it currently remains unclear to what extent the PS4 Pro enhances the resolution on Hitman 2. Digital Foundry has confirmed that the game runs at a native 4K resolution on Xbox One X. However, with the PS4 Pro not offering quite as much power as Microsoft’s supercharged system, it remains to be seen whether this is also the case on the Pro.
Our display indicates that the game is running at a 4K resolution, however, we cannot say for certain what exact resolution it’s running at.
