One of the absolute best games for Playstation 4 along with, among others, God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn, all of which are also exclusive to Ps4! (Xbox has no games that are even close to this console generation despite their on the paper sharper Xbox One X).
First review below:
Is just under ten hours into the game and makes a review already now that the game seems to have received a little merit with criticism when it should be buggy, etc. according to game reviewers who played the game BEFORE RELEASE and BEFORE the two patches that have now arrived! I have seen / experienced two bugs so far, one smaller in a milk sequence and also that some sound disappeared about five hours in which required a reboot (minor errors such as these are quite normal in new reading in big openworld games and will certainly be patched away soon) I play on Ps4 Pro myself and the game is really nice and flows well (ordinary Ps4 has problems with framedrops and the graphics are obviously worse, according to Digital Foundry). The game has varied environments and weather that can change from brilliant sun to rainy rain at any time and it can even start to blow a lot, there are also of course day and night cycles. The game feels like a mix of The Last of Us, Red Dead Redemtion 2, and Far Cry, the melee feels tremendously fulfilling when you have a plank, ax, baseball bat, machete or any other attachment that you sweep to the enemies with full force! An ax, for example, makes the process short while a plank does not do much damage and is quite meaningless if you encounter more than one enemy. All attachments have different durability and can break after use so you need to repair or find new ones. You can also upgrade these weapons, so why not put some nail on your baseball tree for example. Knives are always available to use and fit perfectly when sneaking up on someone's skiing (then use the automatic) process then becomes short and brutal as well as silent. Firearms also have a lot of everything from a pretty useless gun where many shots are needed if you don't hit your head to significantly better rifles and shotguns, etc. which does great damage, better weapons can be bought a bit into the game and you can also mount sound attenuator on weapons to silently eliminate enemies. Enemies have plenty of everything from various people to fast freakers (humans and animals infected with viruses) who run fast if they see you and attract more to you if you silence them quickly, so here's how to think a little tactically. There are also animals, both dangerous (freakers) and harmless that you will encounter during the course of the game.
The graphics on Ps4 PRO if you run on 4K TV with good HDR is really nice! The ground is extremely detailed and varied with grass, stone, clay and more. mm. and there are many small details that really raise the graphic (Digital Foundry has looked a little extra at this and says that the details are some of the best they have seen in a game and also that rain and blown etc. are very convincing done). Lights, shadows and smoke etc. they are also very good in this game.

** What does HDR mean and why is it so good?
The simple explanation is "better pixels instead of more pixels" where HDR offers an extended contrast range with much better detail in dark / light scenes as well as an improved color management with more shades and depth of image. The idea is simply to make the picture more realistic and recreate how we humans see in reality where, for example, a dazzling sun should give the same effect as when we look out the window.
