[Original Story] The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition is one of the high profile games that can take advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro additional processing power to deliver several improvements. Bethesda detailed these improvements a while back, but we have now managed to learn more about them thanks to an in-depth analysis by Digital Foundry.
In the recently shared Let’s Play Skyrim PS4 Pro Gameplay & Initial Analysis, Digital Foundry confirmed that the game indeed runs at native 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro console. Frame rate seems to be not too different from the regular PlayStation 4 version, and asset quality is on par with the regular PlayStation 4 and PC versions, but foliage draw distance is improved in both 4K and 1080p resolutions, with supersampling also present at 1080p. You can check out the full video right below.
