Developer The Tangentlemen has announced today that its virtual reality (VR) horror title Here They Lie – a launch day experience for PlayStation VR – will receive a major update this week. This will improve the visuals on the headset as well as adding support for PlayStation 4 Pro, along with a standard non-VR version.
In a PlayStation.Blog posting, Cory Davis,
PlayStation 4 Pro will also see an update arrive, making Here They Lie 4K compatible – if you’ve got the screen for it – alongside HDR support for the standard version. That also means better visuals for PS4 Pro owners using PlayStation VR including better shadows, post-processing effects, dynamic flashlight shadows, and ambient occlusion.
Davis also notes several smaller improvements, saying: “New additions include a controller configuration screen, the highly requested Chapter Select screen, subtitles (only for the Standard version), and a slew of visual upgrades — like improved anti-aliasing and lighting across the board.”
And specifically for PlayStation VR, Davis adds: “We’ve improved head tracking globally for a smoother, more accurate, and more immersive experience. Additionally, we’ve reworked the overall texture streaming to improve the sharpness of the visuals throughout the world. Some additional tutorial screens have been added to help you smoothly immerse yourself in VR, and you’ll be able to switch between the VR and Standard (non VR) version of Here They Lie seamlessly.”
Here They Lie will be updated tomorrow, 21st February. If you purchase Here They Lie after that date you’ll get both versions of the videogame. For any further updates from Tangentlemen, keep reading VRFocus.
