Rocket League PS4 Pro 4K Support Announced Alongside Framerate Improvements On Base PS4 and Pro


Rocket League PS4 Pro support has just been announced by developer Psyonix. Furthermore, the update offers framerate improvements in 1080p and 4K for single and two-player split-screen modes.

Those playing in three and four-player split-screen modes will be able to enjoy Rocket League in 60 fps “ in most arenas at the same resolutions”. It's unsure whether Rocket League will render in native 4K on Sony's enhanced PS4 console. There's also the possibility that the PS4 Pro's checkerboard rendering technique will be used to 'upscale' to 4K.
