Modern Warfare is a return to world-class form for Infinity Ward and Activision. The campaign is engaging, while the multiplayer modes offer many hours of entertainment with your friends. If you haven't played a Call of Duty game before, now is the time to pick up this modern classic.
Horror fans owe it to themselves to play the Resident Evil 2 Remake, and it's not something anyone else should miss out on either — if you can stomach it. Quickly regarded as one of the greatest remakes of all time, Resident Evil 2 gives players a choice on PS4 Pro of choosing between checkerboarded 4K at 30FPS or a lower resolution at 60FPS. Zombies never looked so good.
From the creators of Fallout: New Vegas comes one of the hottest games this year. The RPG elements are breathtaking, as are the worlds you get to explore. When you are using a PS4 Pro, the worlds come alive like never before.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is exactly what some players needed in today's political climate: a way to kick ass against Nazis and KKK members. As it turns out, it happened to be a load of fun, and over on PS4 Pro, the resolution is bumped up to 1440p. It's not the most impressive enhancement, but it's certainly welcome.
Rockstar makes some of the best games in the business, as evidenced by Red Dead Redemption 2. You'll be hard-pressed to find glaring criticisms with the game — other than the labor practices it was created under. This stunning creation of the American Wild West as the time of cowboys and outlaws was fading away runs at 4K on PS4 Pro with HDR support.
Kratos and Atreus became nearly everyone's favorite father/son duo after God of War released. Their journey is as harrowing as it is emotional, and it was beautifully captured in a game with impeccable gameplay mechanics to boot. On PS4 Pro, players can choose to either favor performance or resolution, whether you need the best visuals possible at checkerboarded 4K or want the game running at an unlocked frame-rate capped at 60FPS.
Ubisoft's latest historical venture thrusts players back into the middle of ancient Greece during the Peloponnesian War. Sprawling city-states surrounded by imposing mountains and the Aegean sea can be viewed at a dynamic resolution on PS4 Pro, with the highest native resolution maxing at around 1620p. Just be sure to make good use of Odyssey's photo mode.
Joel and Ellie's journey originated on PS3, but PS4 is where it found its new home. The Last of Us Remastered takes one of last generation's most highly-acclaimed games, and lets players choose from a variety of resolution, frame-rate, and shadow configurations on PS4 Pro. Enjoy it in stunning 4K at 30FPS or go for 60FPS at 1800p.
Nathan Drake's final adventure on the hunt for pirate Henry Avery's long lost treasure is best experienced on PlayStation 4 Pro. From the coastlines of Madagascar to the Scottish Highlands, everything looks beautiful at 1440p with HDR support, giving its colors more vibrancy and the resolution a crisp edge that wasn't present before.
Say what you want about EA and Battlefront II's initial microtransactions, but it's actually not a bad game when you get past the controversy and focus on its actual content. Not only does it have several multiplayer game modes spanning the prequel trilogy all the way until the recent sequels, but it also has a dedicated single-player campaign. Star Wars Battlefront II runs at 1440p and 60FPS on PS4 Pro.
Shadow of the Colossus launched on PS2 but was rebuilt from the ground up specifically for PlayStation 4. The best way to experience this classic title is undoubtedly on PS4 Pro, which can render it at 4K running at 30FPS or 1080p at 60FPS. If you missed out on it over a decade ago, now's the time to pick it up.
Join your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man on his heroics through New York City in stunning 4K with HDR support on PS4 Pro. Insomniac absolutely knocked this one out of the park, and it may very well be one of the best superhero video games ever to release — it certainly gives the Batman Arkham series a run for its money.
