GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Updated November 22, 2022 by Mark Sammut: The PlayStation 5 is a powerful machine that is capable of delivering a 4K resolution & 60 FPS; however, only a select number of games offer these two features simultaneously.

Still, there are some great PS5 games that support 4K & 60 FPS.


Stray

  • Release Date: July 19, 2022

BlueTwelve Studio’s Stray garnered quite a bit of hype prior to its release, & the cyberpunk project managed to live up to the hype.

Persona 5 Royal

  • Release Date: October 21, 2022

Originally released on the PS4, Persona 5 Royal is now available natively on the PS5. In the gr& scheme of things, the fact Sony’s console can run a 3-year-old JRPG at 4K & 60 FPS is not particularly impressive; however, that does not take anything away from the fact that P5R looks & performs great. At this point, Atlus’ game is one of the most stylish projects across three PlayStation generations, & its anime visuals will undoubtedly st& the test of time.

As an improved frame rate does not have a significant impact on turn-based combat, the 4K jump is far more important in the case of P5R. Aesthetically, the JRPG has never looked better & cooler than it does on current-generation hardware (& PC).

Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series

  • Release Date: July 8, 2022

It should Approach as no surprise that the PS5 is able to run a compilation containing remasters of games that are more than two decades old at 4K & 60 FPS, but it is still nice to see it Approach to fruition. Klonoa is underrated, & both 1997’s Door to Phantomile & 2001’s Lunatea’s Veil are creative & charming 2.5D platformers that have stood the test of time.

Nostalgia is not required to appreciate Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series. This package is an easy recommendation for anyone yearning for a throwback to the early years of the PlayStation’s run. Both games have good level design, imaginative environments, & tight controls.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

call of duty patch infinity ward

  • Release Date: October 28, 2022

Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 builds nicely on the foundations laid by 2019’s Modern Warfare. Except for perhaps hack & slash games, first-person shooters arguably benefit the most from supporting 60 FPS, & performance takes priority over visuals for these projects. Luckily, PS5 owners do not need to select one over the other since Modern Warfare 2‘s campaign can maintain a dynamic 4K resolution & 60 FPS. For players who do not have a 4K monitor or television, the game also includes a performance mode that supports 2K & 120 FPS.

Modern Warfare 2‘s multiplayer is polarizing, which has become something of a trend for Activision’s franchise. However, the campaign has fared better, delivering an action-packed but still gritty story that tries to incorporate more options on how to tackle missions.

  • Release Date: March 25, 2022

Gearbox’s Borderl&s spin-off finds Tiny Tina staging another game of Bunkers & Badasses, a twist on the Dungeons & Dragons formula. As the Fatemaker, players have to repel the revival of the Dragon Lord, a quest that delivers quite a few laughs & epic moments. Tiny Tina’s Wonderl&s is not a huge departure from the mainline entries, but it does incorporate some traditional RPG concepts along with envisioning a classic fantasy world as the setting for the adventure.

On the PS5, players can either set the game to performance or resolution mode. The latter offers a dynamic 4K resolution & 60 FPS; meanwhile, the former drops the resolution to 1080p but doubles the FPS. As 120 FPS is noticeable in a first-person shooter, performance mode is definitely worth trying, although resolution mode delivers the best of both worlds.

Crysis 2 & 3 Remastered

  • Release Date: October 15, 2021

The original Crysis was such a taxing game that it become the benchmark for analyzing a PC’s power. “Can it run Crysis?” is a meme, to the point that it almost overshadows the fact that all three entries in the series are pretty fun shooters in their own right.

A free game designed the showcase the PlayStation 5’s power & the DualSense’s features, Astro’s Playroom is a rare tech demo that is also a genuinely great game. Modern Sony systems are not particularly known for their 3D platformers, but Astro’s Playroom st&s comfortably alongside the genre’s strongest recent releases. Irresistibly charming & visually stunning, the game guides players through four worlds as they complete levels filled with nods to PlayStation’s past.

Astro’s Playroom is likely to be most people’s first PS5 game that supports 4K & 60 FPS, & it is more than good enough to satisfy those expectations. Lasting roughly 5 hours, the platformer never threatens to overstay its welcome or produce a dull moment. Considering Astro Bot Rescue Mission is also incredible, this franchise really deserves to become a Sony mainstay.

Genshin Impact

  • Release Date: April 28, 2021

MiHoYo’s free-to-play action RPG made its way to the PS5 in April 2021, bringing 4K resolution & 60 FPS with it.

The character designs are also top-notch, as are the animations used in battles. Genshin Impact is an impressive game considering it can be played for free, & it is not going anywhere anytime soon.

God Of War

  • Release Date: April 20, 2018

At the beginning of 2021, Sony released a patch that optimized God of War on the PS5, allowing Santa Monica’s beloved game to be experienced at 60 FPS & 4K. Kratos’ most recent adventure marked a significant shift for the series, replacing the frantic action & over-the-top tone with vicious but more intimate combat & a reflective narrative driven by emotions other than Enrage.

Released well into the PS4’s lifespan, God of War was one of the best-looking games on that console, & that holds true for the PS5. With a sequel in development, this is the ideal time for anyone who missed out on 2018’s God of War to give it a try; it is even available on PC for those who do not own a PlayStation system.

Ghost Of Tsushima: Director’s Carve

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut ps5

  • Release Date: August 20, 2021

The PS4’s Ghost of Tsushima hits 60 FPS on the PS5 when played in Resolution Mode, but 4K isn’t possible. However, the Director’s Carve is an entirely different beast. Due to being native to the PS5, GoT: Director’s Carve offers a substantial boost in performance & visuals. The game still comes with two modes:

  • Resolution Mode: 4K & the potential to reach 60 FPS. However, the latter might drop on occasion.
  • Performance Mode: 1800p & a stable 60 FPS.

Both modes are pleasing to the eye, but Resolution Mode does a decent job of maintaining 60 FPS in most situations. The performance might just dip during the campaign’s more hectic moments. If someone owns a 4K TV, they should try Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut‘s Resolution Mode to see for themselves if the performances work for them. If they decide that the extra pixels aren’t worth uneven frames, Performance Mode will always be there.

Overwatch 2

  • Release Date: October 4, 2022

Blizzard has opted to go free-to-play for Overwatch 2, a surprising change considering the original game was a commercial success. In early access, the sequel remains largely true to its predecessor’s ideas, all the while implementing a h&ful of changes that do impact the overall experience. The biggest alteration is a switch from 6v6 to 5v5 matches, which has shaken up the franchise’s meta.

Overwatch 2 supports three modes: Resolution, Balanced, & Frame Rate. The latter aims for 120 FPS at a lower resolution, while Balanced offers a locked 60 FPS at 1440p. Surprisingly, Resolution also supports 60 FPS alongside its 4K visuals, although the frames might dip on occasion or switch to 30 FPS outside of gameplay.

Deathloop‘s gunplay is frantic, balanced, & accessible. The game combines a solid selection of weapons with an array of powers that develop throughout the campaign, along with other elements such as stealth & gadgets. Deep, unique, & plain old fun, Deathloop is the complete package.

Scarlet Nexus

New, successful IPs should be celebrated, particularly when it comes to ambitious RPGs. B&ai Namco’s Scarlet Nexus serves as a great introduction to a universe that, hopefully, will be further exp&ed upon by subsequent releases.

Visually, Scarlet Nexus can’t compare to the likes of Final Fantasy or Persona, but it delivers something on the same level as a Tales of game. Featuring real-time combat that is fast-paced & deceptively complex, Scarlet Nexus runs very well on the PS5.

  • Release Date: December 3, 2020

Ubisoft’s action-adventure game takes quite a bit of inspiration from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, utilizing a similar visual style & puzzle system. Based on Greek mythology, Immortals Fenyx Rising follows the titular hero as he tries to defeat Typhon, a journey that puts Fenyx directly in the path of a number of gods.

Immortals Fenyx Rising boasts fast-paced hack & slash combat that blends melee & ranged weapons along with an array of incredible powers.

Set in a post-apocalyptic l&scape with zombie-style monsters, Days Gone revolves around a biker, Deacon, & tells a story that starts slow but builds steam quite nicely as it goes along.
