BANDAI NAMCO announced Little Nightmare 2 Enhanced Edition at the start of gamescom 2021, the next-gen version of the title, which is now available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
Little Nightmare 2 has also hit the two million unit sales mark, demonstrating the continued growth and interest in the Adventure Suspense franchise since it first appeared in 2017. Developed by Supermassive Games, the next-gen version of the game will feature several improvements over the original title. Two modes will be available: a performance mode in 2160p and 60 fps and a beauty mode that sets the resolution of the game for up to 4K with a dynamic resolution and 30 fps.
Here are the details of what the Enhanced Edition includes:
Beauty Mode *: Little Nightmare 2 runs at 30fps at 4K resolution with optimized ray tracing.
Performance Mode *: Switches the game to 60fps. Dynamic resolution up to 4K to maintain 60fps with ray tracing.
Ray-Traced Reflections: Allows any shiny surface to create a reflection. The clarity and definition depend on the finishes.
Volumetric shadows: Increased resolution of volumetric shadows. Rays of light are disturbed by objects and characters moving in front of a strong light source.
Interactive Particles: Particles are more abundant and are dynamically influenced by Mono, Six and the main opponents. Particles swim and swirl behind them, creating a more realistic and immersive environment.
Immersive audio: New immersive 3D sound mix that creates an even more intense experience when listening to 5.1 / 7.1 audio systems or headphones.
* Modes only available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions. On the PC, all graphics settings can be changed individually in the Settings> Advanced menu.
