Breath of the Wild Can Run 4K on PC From Start to Finish With New CemU 1.8.1b Update

We aren't a big fan of the CemU Wii U emulator here at Shacknews, despite being a fan of PC games in general. But since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild came out for the console, CemU has pushed to perfect the game for those trying to stick it to the Nintendo suits for not bringing the game to their beloved platform. The result is a CemU Update 1.8.1b and getting Link in full 4K resolution from the beginning of the game to the end. 

The newest release has made substantial progress since the game was released back on March 3. By March 7, CemU already had the game running on PC, albeit with plenty of hiccups. By early April, CemU had the game running even smoother, now in 4K.  According to a post on NeoGAF, CemU's latest update has made the complete jump to a full 4K experience with little distortion or frame-rate slowdowns. Even the new DLC Pack 1 for the game works well.

While we must give credit for impressive technical prowess, and watching the game play in a full 4K, the emulator scene continues to be a shady area that just skirts Nintendo use rules as a playground for pirates.
