At the recent PS4 Pro reveal event, Sony showed Ubisoft titles Watch Dogs 2 and For Honor running on the upgraded console. Now Ubisoft has confirmed to VideoGamer.com that two more of it games are set to feature enhancements on the PS4 Pro.

The PS4 Pro is set to enhance both Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Steep when those games release. However, like nearly every game shown at the PS4 Pro event, it's unclear exactly how the games will be enhanced and what features they'll utilize. The PS4 Pro offers games 4K resolution and potentially higher frame rates, while every PS4 will support HDR after an update set for next week launches.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is set to release next year on March 7, while Steep is slated for a December 2016 launch. Both games will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The PS4 Pro releases on November 10 at $400, and you can preorder one right now. New accessories include an updated controller and redesigned camera. The controller's main additions are a new light bar on the front of the controller and USB communication support (as well as Bluetooth). The PlayStation Camera seems to have only gotten a visual makeover. Both cost $60.

In addition to the improvements to games, the new system is capable of 4K media streaming via updated Netflix and YouTube apps, though it won't feature a 4K Blu-ray drive. PlayStation president Andrew House explained the exclusion, saying the company leaned into how users are interacting with the PS4.

"Our feeling is that while physical media continues to be a big part of the games business, we see a trend on video towards streaming," he said. "Certainly with our user base, it's the second biggest use case for people's time on the system so we place more emphasis on that area."
