Resident Evil 7 Has 4K and HDR for PS4 Pro Version
"Great news, everyone!"
Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil 7 will be among the titles that supports 4K and HDR on PlayStation 4 Pro. The system comes out in November, while Resident Evil 7 lands in January 2017. This means that 4K and HDR support will be added by way of a post-launch patch, it seems.
Here is the tweet in which Capcom announced the "great news."

Resident Evil 7 is not the only game that is being enhanced for PS4 Pro. More than dozen other games are also doing the same, including Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Battlefield 1, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and others. You can see a roundup of all the games being enhanced for PS4 Pro here.
In related news, a PlayStation executive recently said it might be the case that some developers/publishers decide to charge money for PS4 Pro 4K HDR patches. While some studios may do this, Sony itself will not.
4K and HDR are two of the major advantages players will have if they purchase a PS4 Pro. The console was announced during the PlayStation Meeting last week and will launch on November 10, 2016 and cost $399/£349/A$560. It features a 1 TB hard drive, doubled GPU power, and boosted CPU clockspeed.
All PS4s, going back to ones sold at launch in 2013, now support HDR by way of today's 4.00 patch, so you may not need to buy a PS4 Pro to see some of the benefits for Resident Evil 7. However, you will need a compatible TV.
