The PlayStation 4 Pro is on its way, and the majority of upcoming PS4 games will support the new enhancements (as will some PS4 games that have already been released, through the “forward compatibility” patches Sony announced). So if you have a PS4 Pro, how will you know if the games you’re shopping for have special PS4 Pro enhancements or not?
Games that make use of the PS4 Pro’s new capabilities will be marked as such. The PlayStation Store page for such games will let you know, and retail packages will have an icon on them. The icon reads “PS4 Pro Enhanced.”
So far, sixteen upcoming games have been confirmed for PS4 Pro enhancements:
- Battlefield 1
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
- Days Gone
- Dishonored 2
- Fifa 17
- Final Fantasy XV
- For Honor
- Ghost Recon Wildlands
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- Killing Floor 2
- Mass Effect: Andromeda
- Titanfall 2
- Watch Dogs 2
This is only a small selection of the games that will eventually take advantage of the PS4 Pro, and the list is growing all the time as more developers make announcements. For example, Respawn’s Vince Zampella announced in a Tweet that Titanfall 2 will make use of the PS4 Pro. In fact, Sony has said almost all new PS4 games will, whether immediately or after downloading a patch.
Meanwhile, nine PS4 games already out have been confirmed for “forward compatibility” so far:
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited
- Infamous: First Light
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
- The Witness
Keep in mind, there are no PS4 Pro exclusive games. If you want one of the games on this list and have no plans to buy a new console, that’s fine. They will all play on your current PS4 with no difficulties. Likewise, the PS4 Pro is capable of playing all PS4 games, even though not all of them will be enhanced.
What do you think of the list revealed so far? Is there a specific game that would make you buy a PS4 Pro for the enhancements?
