We list the best PlayStation games of the year that have been enhanced to show off the power of your PS4 Pro

So, you’re the proud owner of a PS4 Pro. Or perhaps you’re thinking of buying one, but want to make certain that it's the right console for you. Either way, you want to know which PS4 Pro games to buy so you can make the most of your shiny (it’s actually matte) new box.

Now, you’re probably thinking that the best PS4 Pro games are the same as the best PS4 games, but that's not so. While the best PS4 games are some of the most fantastic and refined gaming experiences you’ll find on any console, the best PS4 Pro games are the titles that really showcase what the Pro can do. Of course, it does help that the best PS4 Pro games also happen to be some of the best PS4 games around too.

Best PS4 Pro games you can buy

GT Sport

Price: £25 | Buy now from Amazon

If you thought that GT Sport looked a little ropey on PS4 and you were wondering how, after all those years of development, Polyphony Digital could have overlooked visuals, your answer is hidden within the PS4 Pro. Firing up GT Sport on both a 1080p TV with downsampling reveals that this is absolutely gorgeous.

Put it on a 4K TV with HDR enabled and it sings like nothing else. Microsoft may well tell you Forza 7 on Xbox One X is the real looker, but you honestly won’t find a more beautiful racing game than GT Sport at 4K with HDR on PS4 Pro. Stunning.

God of War

Price: £45 | Buy now from Amazon

Perhaps the best sequel of the year, the latest God of War takes the series to new heights of immersive action-packed gameplay and emotional storytelling. With dynamic 4K and HDR support as well as an advanced frame rate option, it's one of the top games you can buy to show off your PS4 Pro's potential. Even better, it's a Sony exclusive, so you can settle into this the gloriously detailed Norse-inspired game world knowing that you made the right decision when buying a PlayStation 4 Pro.

Horizon Zero Dawn

Price: £20 | Buy now from Amazon

This should come as no surprise, but Horizon Zero Dawn is an absolute beauty on PS4 Pro. In motion, it’s near unrivalled, with its bright colour palette bursting out from your TV screen when HDR is enabled. It’s a true testament to just how fantastic the team at Guerrilla Games is when it comes to developing a game engine that looks utterly brilliant and can still run like a dream.

Final Fantasy XV

Price: £10 | Buy now from Amazon

Final Fantasy XV is one of the best looking PS4 games around. This absolutely mammoth title was gorgeous on release and now, thanks to high-resolution textures and the introduction of HDR, it’s absolutely stunning on PS4 Pro. Plenty of reason to go back and play through it all again, or dive into its DLC content.

The Last Guardian

Price: £17 | Buy now from Amazon

Like Final Fantasy XV, The Last Guardian is a Sony game that almost never turned up. Now that it has, though, it’s incredible. On PS4 Pro, The Last Guardian benefits from a texture bump, higher-resolution output and HDR support.

Not only does this mean Trico and his feathers look brilliant, but the ruined enclave The Last Guardian plays out in is absolutely stunning, with vines groping crumbling brick walls and the sunlight revealing all of their crevices.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Price: £20 | Buy now from Amazon


For some reason, CD Projekt Red didn’t update The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the PS4 Pro until the Xbox One X arrived. Now it has, though, it’s more than reason enough to go back and play through one of the best RPGs ever made.

HDR has a huge impact on the beautiful vistas, with Toussaint's blue skies and verdant green hills looking even more incredible. The arrival of high-resolution textures is also welcome, but it’s the HDR that makes this a worthwhile PS4 Pro game to play.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Price: £18 | Buy now from Amazon

This one came out a while ago, but it stands the test of time. Naughty Dog has a special skill in creating absolutely beautiful-looking games and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End doesn’t disappoint. The addition of high-resolution textures and HDR support pushes the green leafy jungles and well-worn shanty towns of A Thief’s End to new levels.

The standalone expansion, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, also benefits from all of these same improvements and is an absolute must for any adventure game fan looking for something gorgeous to stare at.
