Best 4K/HDR Console Games (Top 4K/HDR PS4 Pro and Xbox OneX Games)

Some Titles That Justify All That Expense With Their Visuals

PS4 Pro

Horizon Zero Dawn
A stunning game from launch to now, Horizon also happens to be one of the best RPGs we’ve played in a while. Visually, it’s a fantastic showcase for what the PS4 Pro can do in 4K with wonderful vistas and great details to be picked out.

Uncharted 4: a Thief’s End
Naughty Dog has never been a slouch in the graphics department and 4K images only help to better show off the kind of detail, particularly in its character design and rendering, that makes this studio one of the best in the business.

The Last Guardian
While it sits between generations in some respects thanks to its protracted development, there remains something quite beautiful about this follow-up to Shadow Of The Colossus and until the new remaster of that game comes along, this will do nicely.

Final Fantasy XV
Square’s series feels more at home on a PlayStation these days, so it seems only fitting that it should have some great 4K and HDR support on PS4 Pro. It was already a greatlooking game, but with this kind of enhancement it really shines.

Gran Turismo Sport
The GT titles are at the forefront of Sony’s drive for graphical superiority and this has never been more the case than with some of the near photo-realistic vehicles and tracks you get here. We’re blessed with good-looking racers in 4K right now.


Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
Just as Shadow Of Mordor supported the launch of the PS4 Pro, so Shadow Of War is backing the Xbox One X with 4K and HDR visuals to help you get the most spectacle from Tolkien’s world. That this is the more colourful game also helps.

Forza Motorsport 7
As PS4 Pro has Gran Turismo, so Xbox One X has Forza and this is yet another stunning feast for the eyes with everything rendered to the limit of what the Xbox One X can achieve. Turn10 is a master of pushing the Xbox consoles to their limit.

A big graphical enhancement patch means that a game that was once synonymous with rough-and-ready visuals is going to be one of the bestlooking games on Xbox One X. With its improved effects, you’re going to want to check this one out.

Assassin’s Creed Origins
With its epic scale and vibrant design, Assassin’s Creed Origins might be the best game in the series
to be enjoyed in 4K. Thanks to Ultra HD visual support and HDR, it couldn’t look any better than on the Xbox One X this year.

Rise of the Tomb Raider
Launched first on Xbox One, given a 4K upgrade for PS4 Pro and now returning to Xbox One X, this is now the best-looking version of the game that you’ll find out there. And that’s saying something, because it was already an impressive release.
