Mafia 3 has PS4 Pro assist now, though 2K and Sony don’t appear to have instructed anyone it was occurring.

In the video above Digital Foundry goes over the PS4 Pro construct of Mafia three, noting a “perceptible upgrade” for these with entry to the extra highly effective .

It’s under no circumstances clear when PS4 Pro assist was added to Mafia three. The newest replace (1.05) and launched on December 20 – it’s the one which added races and automobile customisation to Mafia three – however the patch notes make no point out of PS4 Pro assist. Nor do earlier ones.

Why wouldn’t 2K and Sony promote this patch given how a lot curiosity there’s in PS4 Pro assist – particularly as Mafia 3 was advertised as a day one PS4 Pro title? Maybe PS4 Pro assist was in there all alongside and no one bothered to examine as a result of Mafia three hasn’t gone down particularly properly? Perhaps we’ll by no means know. I’ll ask 2K, anyway.
