Best PS4 Pro Games

Arriving in late 2016, the PS4 Pro is an upgrade to the PS4 base system adding more processing power that allows games to render in 4K. The PS4 Pro launch also saw the arrival of HDR to the PS4 ecosystem, though HDR support was also added to previous versions of the PS4 via a software patch.

The PS4 Pro should improve the performance of every game played on the console due to its extra power, however to get the most from the machine you’ll want to invest in games specifically upgraded to take full advantage of the hardware. Below, you’ll find a list of the very best of these games. In order to appear in our list they will have specifically added 4k or HDR support to their standard features.
