Now Playing: The 20 Coolest Games Coming to PS4 Pro

Updated with Rocket League.

Update: We're now also tracking the games that are not getting PS4 Pro patches. These can be found at the bottom of this post.

Original story: Sony showed off a bunch of games that take advantage of the new PS4 Pro at its recent livestreamed event in New York. The PS4 Pro can enable games to display at 4K resolution, utilize extra graphical effects, and run at smoother frame rates. Additionally, games can benefit whether they're played on 4K or 1080p displays.

Some already-released games will feature PS4 Pro support through updates, while others will come with enhancements out of the box. It's not clear how exactly each game will benefit from the upgraded hardware, but lead architect Mark Cerny did divulge some details on some of the games at the event. We've compiled all the information we currently have and will update this article as we receive more.

For more information and stories, head on over to GameSpot's PS4 Pro news hub.

Fallout 4

PS4 Pro with a 4K display:

Bethesda said it expects the game to "take advantage of the PS4 Pro in 4K along with enhanced lighting and graphics features," but didn't provide any further specifics.

Gran Turismo Sport

HDR and wide color support, making for a larger range of colors. For example, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi said GT Sport will be the first game in the series to accurately represent the Ferrari's classic red color.

1800p checkerboard upscaled to 4K.

Hitman

PS4 Pro with a 4K display:

Players can expect a "whole new layer of detail added to it." Hitman's overall resolution will be increased, while "reflective surfaces" should be improved, alongside "more detailed lighting effects." Additionally, the game's aliasing will be reduced. Read the full post to learn more.

Hitman for PS4 Pro will still have "higher quality shading and less flickering highlights" on a 1080p set.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

PS4 Pro with a 1080p display:

Improved shadow maps, extra detail, and enhanced colors. It'll feature higher quality anisotropic filtering, which means upgraded texture sampling, resulting in more detailed environments. Additionally, supersampling will render Horizon's resolution at a resolution "close to 4K" and then shrink it down to 1080p, Guerilla Games says.

PS4 Pro with a 4K display:

A 2160p checkerboard, which Guerilla Games says is a technique that "looks incredible" on a 4K display. It's supposed to add noticeable detail to aspects, such as "stitching on Aloy’s outfit, individual leaves and branches swaying in the wind, kilometers away in the distance, and more detail in all the machines and NPCs in the world."

Infamous: Second Son

Support for HDR and 4K televisions.

Get more details here.

Killing Floor 2

PS4 Pro with a 4K display:

1800p checkboard rendering on 4K TV (3200x1800) optimized for 4K TVs.

The game renders at the "highest resolution" and then downscales the super-sampled image to 1080p. HDR support is also included.

Native 3840x2160 (4K) resolution.

1920x1080 resolution as opposed to the standard PS4's output of 1440x810.

"Each particle looks a little more clear, a little more solid, adding up to objects and enemies that look more distinct and 'real,' whether close-up or at a distance," Enhance Games CEO Testuya Mizuguchi wrote on the PlayStation Blog.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

PS4 Pro with a 4K display:

There are three different visual options PS4 Pro owners can choose from when playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on a Pro. This includes an option to play with a 4K option that runs at 30 FPS.

PS4 Pro Games with Unconfirmed Details

Games Confirmed* to Not Get a PS4 Pro Upgrade Patch

Destiny

A PS4 Pro patch is not in the cards right now, but could happen later, Bungie said.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

"Since we want to fully focus on Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent, and converting The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from a full HD game into a 4K one would be too much of a time and resource-consuming process, we decided not to release an edition of Wild Hunt supporting the new features of PlayStation Pro," CD Projekt Red said.

Until Dawn

Supermassive has confirmed that the horror game is not getting any visual improvements for PS4 Pro, though the PlayStation VR version, Rush of Blood, will get a patch.

* Denotes a situation where a developer has not ruled out a PS4 Pro patch for the future, but isn't committing to one right away.
