‘Firewatch’ Adds Free-Roam Mode And PS4 Pro Support For 4K Awesomeness! [VIDEO]


In-game photographers, virtual adventurers and wallpaper junkies rejoice with the news that "Firewatch" will get a Free-roam mode and updates for PS4 Pro. New user made 4K resolution wallpaper will flood the internet soon.

"Firewatch" has been hailed as one of the prettiest games available in terms of in-game photography. It is a story-driven first-person adventure game that throws players into the wilderness set in Wyoming, 1989. They take the role of a fire lookout overseeing the virtual Shoshone National Forest. As such, with the new game mode, players can explore the forests and water-ways to their heart's content with the sole objective of making wallpaper from screenshots.

However, before a player gear-up, there is a catch. The Free-roam mode will not be available until players complete the game. On completion, the mode will appear in the special features section of the game's main menu, Digital Trends reported.

Also, Campo Santo, the game's developer announced support for the new PS4 Pro console. Players running 1080p displays with the new console will be treated to enhanced detail distance, higher quality shadows and smoother loads. Moreover, those owners with 4K displays will see more of the improvements as the game world will be rendered in an eye-popping 2,560 x 1,440 resolution.

In addition, there will be a 24-hour day and night cycle going. The atmosphere dynamically changes as the gamer hunts for that perfect wallpaper making the basics of real photography essential. Also, players have the option to have physical copies of these snaps sent to them, Eurogamer reported.

"Firewatch" features a disposable camera as one of the in-game tools, and on completion there will be an option to order the "photos" from the web store. This is one of the many features that make this game attractive to virtual adventurers.
