    So ummm wasn’t the ps5 free upgrade supposed to have improved draw distance? Or is that only when rush hour is released? Or on the new routes? Just did a run. Nothing looks any better!

    Are you sure you've launched the PS5 version? Press options with the game tile selected and check which game version you have selected.

    For me the difference is night and day. Improved draw distance, shadows, distant scenery, more flora, radically improved textures etc.

    For me it’s night and day, as Droyden said, everything across the board (visually) [barring FPS] seems to have drastically improved.

    Looks amazing to me. Must be your end I'm afraid. The difference is night and day.

    The southwestern route still looks terrible. Noticed an improvement in others but the draw distance on the track shadows is still appalling.

    No need for that tone. It's widely known that users have been confused about which version of a game they are playing on the PS5, hence the forthcoming changes in the next update to add an identifier to the game tiles.

    I won't bother trying to help again.

    I've been playing NTP on PS5 since the update, it looks amazing.

    Is it just me or are there more trains, by which I mean at Leeds and Manchester and in the depots?

    The route looks more alive. Might just be rose-tinted spectacles of course..

    I didn't notice any extra traffic but I've only done a couple of runs on NTP. I did really enjoy them though. The extra flora by the side of the track, the texturing on the distance hills and I'm sure the lighting was better, all just made it so much more enjoyable. Not that it wasn't enjoyable before, but the increased detail and frame rate takes it up a few notches.
