EA Sports has confirmed that Madden NFL 18 for PlayStation 4 Pro will support both 4K and 1080p resolutions and run at 60fps with no updates required. However, the publisher did not have a comment on whether HDR support would be added but isn’t in at launch.
An EA representative said
Madden NFL 18 supports PS4 Pro at launch in both 4K and 1080p, with no update needed. If a gamer chooses to run Madden NFL 18 in 4K, they will see improved resolution, if they choose to run the game in 1080p, they will see improved framerate in certain areas of the presentation. Core gameplay will render at 60fps regardless. We have no announcements to make regarding HDR support at this time.
The response came after it was reported that Madden NFL 18 would require an update to support 4K and HDR.
The statement also does not include any information about the Xbox One S which supports HDR and the Xbox One X which releases in November and includes 4K and HDR support.
Madden NFL 18 launches on the 25th August for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. EA Access subscribers on Xbox One will be able to start playing tomorrow, 17th August 2017. If you buy the G.O.A.T. Edition you can start playing on the 22nd August 2017.
