PS4 VR game Here They Lie adds non-VR PS4 support, plus 4K
Here They Lie has done it backwards and removed mandatory VR gameplay.
PlayStation VR horror game Here They Lie has bucked the trend of games patching in VR support, by doing it backwards.
Here They Lie launched as a PS4 VR exclusive in October, requiring the headset to be played. Developer Tangentlemen has today released a patch that removes PS VR as a mandatory requirement by enabling gameplay using a standard TV setup.
The update also improves the game’s performance on PS4 Pro, which is evident regardless of if you’re playing with PS VR or a TV screen. It adds both 4K and HDR support on compatible TVs, and a higher quality render on PS VR.
“Many of you had really great requests for Here They Lie, and we’ve implemented as many of them as we could,” said co-creative director Cory Davis on the PlayStation Blog. “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.”
