YouTube channel “ElAnalistaDeBits” compared the game’s performance on PS4, PS4 Pro, and PS5. Although the update didn’t show any big differences between platforms, the game looks a little sharper on the PS5 compared to the PS4 Pro version.
Furthermore, Zero Dawn now runs at a stable 60FPS, even in areas where the original PS4 and PS4 Pro struggled. Last but not least, loading times have been significantly improved on the PS5.
Check out the comparison video below and judge for yourself.
Even in its original PS4 release, Horizon Zero Dawn was already a very nice and optimized game, which makes us, even more, looking forward to the new game, which should take full advantage of the new generation’s potential.
