Though many had assumed Red Dead Redemption 2 would run in 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Sony and Rockstar have confirmed this to be true.
Via the PlayStation Blog, Sony has posted the six minute gameplay trailer of Red Dead Redemption 2 that was revealed this morning with the text “Captured entirely from in-game footage on PlayStation 4 Pro, watch this introduction to Red Dead Redemption 2’s gameplay in 4K.”
An identical caption can be found beneath the YouTube video itself on Sony’s official account. The same video was uploaded to the official Xbox YouTube channel, though its caption is slightly altered, reading “Captured entirely from in-game footage, watch this introduction to Red Dead Redemption 2’s gameplay in 4K.”
This minor change in description suggests that the video shown across all outlets and channels was, in fact, captured on the PlayStation 4 Pro, and that it was definitely running in 4K. Speaking with USgamer, Rockstar confirmed this to be the case.
Though it wasn’t captured on the Xbox One X, the official Xbox website confirms that the One X also plays the game in 4K, and that the game is “Xbox One X Enhanced.” However, the same page also notes that “enhanced features for Xbox One X [are] subject to release of a content update.” A required content update could prove to be required for the PlayStation 4 Pro version as well.
