If you’re wondering whether there’s a Rage 2 HDR option for the PC version of the game, you’re in luck. We’re here to tell you if you can enable HDR on PC in Bethesda’s new FPS game. Find out more by reading our Rage 2 HDR guide below.
Rage 2 HDR | PC support
Let’s get right to the chase for those PC players. Unfortunately, there isn’t any Rage 2 HDR support if you’re playing the game via the Bethesda Launcher or on Steam.
There hadn’t been any indication about this feature being available ahead of launch. Now that we know it doesn’t come pre-packaged with an HDR setting on PC, however, it makes sense why the game’s developers and publisher were so quiet on this front before the game shipped.
According to one thread of the Rage 2 Steam community page, players have been left surprised that there’s no HDR support for them if they play the game on PC. Given that most PCs can handle up to 4k or even 8k resolutions these days, with the right monitor or TV screen, it’s surreal that there’s no option to play the game in HDR.
Rage 2 HDR | PS4 and Xbox One support
If it helps PC players feel better, there isn’t any Rage 2 HDR support either for PS4 or Xbox One owners. The game’s highest graphical setting on either console is set at 1080p, according to this thread and this thread on Reddit.
Given that there’s HDR support on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, it’s strange that neither of these has the option to show Rage 2 in any setting higher than 1080p. Admittedly, it isn’t a necessity for games to come equipped with HDR support. When there is hardware out there that can handle it with relative ease, however, gamers will question why it wasn’t implemented for specific games.
