Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4 HDR Settings

Horizon Zero Dawn Art

Unlike the PC version, the PS4 version of the game does not have any HDR calibration settings. The game also doesn't seem to use the PS4/PS5 HDR system calibration settings and has fixed brightness levels.
Peaking the brightness of the brightest light sources (lamps) have a brightness of up to 10000 nits, but this is not critical.
But the brightness of ordinary objects such as highlights, sky, etc. has a brightness of approximately 400 to 1500 nits. The brightness of different light sources can vary greatly from 1500 to 10000 nits. If the image of such objects seems too bright for you and you lose detail in the bright areas, then use the DTM mode of your TV.

The game also has a Brightness slider in the display settings. This option is similar to the midpoint, i.e. you can adjust the balance in favor of dark or light. Changing the value will also affect the peak brightness. You can try this, but if you want to decrease the peak brightness value, then decreasing the slider will cause shadow detail to be lost and the UI brightness to decrease. Increasing the value of the slider will result in loss of black levels and low contrast. Recommended value is 50%.
