Early 2017 has quite a number of different games set to be released, but Mass Effect: Andromeda is definitely one of the biggest. Fans of the series have been waiting since the conclusion of the original Mass Effect trilogy in 2012 to jump back into this universe. With the game less than a month and a half away, plenty of new details keep being revealed and the latest bit of news on Mass Effect: Andromeda involves HDR support for the game.
Bioware GM Aaryn Flynn has been a pretty prolific Twitter user for awhile now and lately he has been responding to question after question from fans on Twitter. We told you the other day about how he revealed the game will not have a season pass and now he is back at it again.
Flynn was first asked if Mass Effect: Andromeda would have HDR Support on Xbox One and PS4/PS4 Pro, in which he responded “Yes.” This is great news, as HDR is definitely proving to make a difference in games that are currently taking advantage of it. While this only confirmed HDR support for consoles, he was also asked about PC as well.
Following this question, someone else asked if PC would have HDR support first of all, and if so, would it be HDR10 or Dolby Vision? In response, Flynn stated that the PC version of Mass Effect: Andromeda would in fact have HDR support. However, he also mentioned that he was not sure which version it would be between HDR10 or Dolby Vision.
If you want to truly play the best looking version of Mass Effect: Andromeda, it’s definitely sounding like you may want to invest in a newer 4K TV or monitor that has HDR support. Flynn had also previously said that the game will run at 1080p on PS4 and 900p on Xbox One, so PS4 on a 4K HDR TV definitely sounds like the best console version if your PC can’t run the game.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will be releasing in the US on March 21 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
