All versions of the game will receive HDR functionality, with the PC, Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game to be updated on January 31. Square Enix and IO Interactive have released a screenshot teasing some of the improvements to expect, but you really need a HDR TV or monitor to understand the difference - and it's big.

The developer teases: "As an example, think of 47 in a dark room looking out a bright window. Without HDR you would not be able make out what's outside, whereas with HDR you can simultaneously see details inside the room and outside the window. Another extreme example is the sun. Without HDR we could not render the sun brighter than a white piece of paper, so we had to 'simulate' the sun being blinding. With HDR we can draw the sun several times brighter, so that it is actually close to being blinding, just like in real life".
