A report from US Gamer stated that Madden NFL 18 featured no type of PS4 Pro enhancements were found within the review code and that gamers would have to wait for a “future update” to take advantage of the extra Pro power for EA’s mega-popular football gaming franchise.

Not so fast! Game Informer contacted EA and quickly received some clarification on the matter.

 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.

Wouldn’t surprise me if a possible HDR patch arrives around the same time as the Xbox One X patch for the game, seeing as how Xbox and the NFL are pretty buddy-buddy when it comes to Madden NFL.

My question? Is Madden NFL 18 pumping out native 4K or is it checkerboard? Either way, always glad to see more and more games supporting Sony’s mid-gen refresh.

Will you be buying Madden NFL 18? The Brah still wishes the NCAA Football series was around so that he could take his Tennessee Volunteers to the National Championship every year.

Ah, the glory days.
