Mafia 3 Now Updated With PS4 pro Patch 1.05
The team over at Digital Foundry have discovered that Mafia 3's latest patch has given the title a boost on the Playstation 4 Pro, despite no mention of the upgrades in the recent patch notes.
Improvements via the patch are as follows:
- Resolution increased to 1440p
- 1080p supersampling
- Improvements in shadow quality
- Improvements to draw distance
- Improved motion blur effects
4K televisions users will see a benefit in a locked 30FPS with full V-sync. A welcome improvement as screen tearing was quite apparent with the launch version of the game, although base Playstation 4 users will still see occasional tears when frames drop below target.
Interestingly there have been a few drawbacks with the update on the more powerful hardware as Digital Foundry noticed that the Playstation 4 Pro version suffered a loss in performance in the more action based areas of the game with drops in frame rate hitting as low as 26FPS when compared to the base Playstation's 30FPS.
