These are some of the most beautiful PS5 games.
Since the PS5 has been out for a while, it has shown itself to be quite a gaming powerhouse. Mark Cerny, the lead system engineer for the console, first talked about its features at GDC in 2020. Many people found it hard to imagine how powerful the hardware would be once they got it home.
Even though there are still a lot of gamers who haven’t been able to get their hands on the system yet, those who have can attest to its ability to deliver truly next-gen experiences. However, the hardware can only go so far without the games that can push it to its limits. As more and more games that meet those requirements come out, here are some of the most graphically demanding PS5 games you can play right now.
|Release Date||February 25, 2022|
Elden Ring came out after years of waiting, and critics loved it. This spiritual follow-up to the Soulsborne games from FromSoftware won a lot of awards, including Game of the Year 2022. It gave fans a whole new world to discover and test themselves in.
All of the FromSoft games are stylish and beautiful in their own ways, but Elden Ring takes design to a new level.There are many places to explore, mountains to climb, and caves to go into. The tall Erdtree shines its light on everything, making this game a beautiful one that will make good use of your PS5.
|Release Date||30 April 2021|
Returnal is one of the PS5’s best games, especially when it first came out. This roguelike is pretty hard, but the battles are fun, and the story is interesting and doesn’t shy away from going into the horror genre.
It also helps that the game looks so beautiful. With Sony’s help, Housemarque was able to make an amazing roguelike game that shows how far the company has come from its humble beginnings on the indie scene to where it is now, which is at the top of the current-gen scene.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut
|Release Date (PS5)||24 September 2021|
People didn’t know much about the game Death Stranding until it came out. People often think of the game as a walking simulator, but it’s really a scary game that does things no other game has.
It was a hit or miss with both players and critics, but its image has gotten better over time. With the release of Death Stranding Director’s Cut, PS5 players can enjoy this beautiful game the way it was meant to be played, with new features that could only come from Hideo Kojima’s mind.
Ghost Of Tsushima: Director’s Cut
|Release Date (PS5)||20 August 2021|
Ghost of Tsushima is a fantastic game that players will enjoy a lot. Fans of Kurosawa’s old movies will love this game, especially since you can play it in black-and-white “Kurosawa mode” that looks like an old movie.
The Director’s Cut makes this world even more beautiful, and the stunning sights will make players have a great time. Jin also goes to Iki Island in the Director’s Cut, where he has to deal with a strange new threat brought on by the Mongol invaders. The Director’s Cut also has even better visuals.
|Release Date||25 March 2022|
Ghostwire: Tokyo takes place in a version of Japan that has been abandoned and is full of ghosts. You are free to move around as you gain new magic skills that you can use to fight the ghosts that have taken over the city. The story is interesting and will keep you interested, but the pictures will be even more interesting.
When it’s dark and the city is so full of people, it really stands out. On the PS5, you can choose to have dim clouds, neon signs and lamps, and puddles everywhere to reflect them. This already looks great, but when you fight ghosts, you get to see all the effects of your magic skills. It’s a beautiful game to play.
|Developer||CD Projekt Red|
|Release Date (PS5)||15 February 2022|
Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that was made too quickly and made more promises than it could keep. The bad start to this game’s life has ruined it for all time. But after many changes, tweaks, and improvements, Night City looks absolutely stunning on the PS5, with its neon glow and dark shadows.
Recent updates have done a great job of making it possible to play Cyberpunk 2077 on newer platforms. It looks great on the PS5, and it’s a shame that technology problems kept many people from enjoying the story. With the changes and DLC, it might be able to go out on a better note.
|Release Date||19 July 2022|
Stray is an independent game that quickly won people over. It puts you in the…paws? of a cat. You fall into an old city full of robots, and you have to find your way out. Help out the city’s robots and move around with your little droid friend as you learn about the city’s history.
The game shows a lot about how good games can look, even when made by smaller companies. The city looks great, the lighting is great, and the cat’s style and movements are right on point. If you haven’t played it yet, you should just to see a beautiful place. As a cat. You can act like a cat.
Kena: Bridge Of Spirit
|Release Date||21 September 2021|
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is the first game from animation company Ember Labs. It was first shown at a PlayStation event in 2020. During that show, the first thing people noticed about the game was how beautiful it looked.
The independent creator used its experience with animation to make the game. It had worked on the hauntingly beautiful animated short film Terrible Fate for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, so it knew how to do this. The game has the same amount of detail and expressive characters as the movie, but most of it is now rendered in real time with the power of the PS5.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
|Release Date||12 November 2020|
When the PS5 came out in November 2020, it had a good selection of launch games, but none of them were as sought after or expected as Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the sequel to the great Marvel’s Spider-Man.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the game is still one of the most popular ones for the system. Not only that, but it also gave many people who bought it on the first day their first look at how the PS5 worked, with graphics that were better in every way than the PS4. The first game was also re-released for the PS5, with changes to Peter Parker’s character model and other improvements to the graphics.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade
|Release Date (PS5)||10 June 2021|
When the PS4 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake came out in 2020, it was clear that it was making the most out of the old 2013 gear. This made the frame rate drop and caused objects and textures to pop in quickly in places where the game needed a lot of resources.
So, many gamers were glad to hear that a version for the PS5 would fix these problems. This happened in a 2021 re-release called Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade. It was a bundle with the base game and an update where Yuffie, the main character from the 1997 game, was the main character. And the re-release didn’t let anyone down. It showed the game in its best light and gave the PS5 a chance to show how good it is at graphics.
The Last Of Us: Part 1 & Part 2
|Release Dates||2 September 2022 (Part 1), 19 May 2021 (Part 2 PS5 Update)|
The Last of Us was one of the best story-driven games when it came out on PS3 in 2011, and it pushed the limits of what was possible at the time with graphics. It’s still beautiful today, and so is the PS4 remaster, but The Last of Us: Part 1 on PS5 is basically a remake of the game with current-gen graphics.
When you add this to The Last of Us: Part 2 and its PS5 update, it’s clear that these are some of the best-looking games you can play on PlayStation 5. The story is still interesting to watch, and the great images make the experience even better.
God Of War: Ragnarok
|Developer||Santa Monica Studio|
|Release Date||9 November 2022|
God of War: Ragnarok is the sequel to the 2018 reboot. It takes us to new places and exciting worlds that we didn’t get to see in the first game. Whether it’s all-new realms and towns or old places that have been changed by Fimbulwinter, the visuals never fail to amaze.
Even though the game doesn’t do much to improve on the 2018 version in terms of gameplay, it keeps what made it so great, including the amazing graphics. You’ll have to pull over a lot to take in the sights.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
|Release Date||11 June 2021|
Insomniac Games was a big part of the PS5’s launch time. In just a few months, they made two triple-A games that were only available on the PS5. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was the second one. It was the sixteenth game in a series that started on the PS2.
For its latest game, the studio used not only the PS5’s great graphics, but also its super-fast SSD so that files could load almost instantly. This made it possible for them to make Eggy Car game’s rift mechanic, in which you can move smoothly between different places and worlds. The fact that it also looks like something made at an animation company like Pixar shows how far games have come since the first one in the series came out in 2002.
Horizon Forbidden West
|Release Date||18 February 2022|
Horizon Zero Dawn was one of the best-looking PS4 games when it came out, even though The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a bigger deal at the time. Guerrilla Games tried to do the same thing on the PS5 with Horizon: Forbidden West, the update that was bound to come.
The game is still one of the best-looking ones on PS5, with a long list of visual and gameplay improvements over the original, which was already stunning. The fact that all of that was built on top of a PS4 framework makes it even more amazing. For a cross-generation game, the PS5 version of the game really goes above and beyond, making you wonder what it could have looked like if it hadn’t been limited by the PS4’s powers.
|Release Date||12 November 2020|
After doing an amazing job with its Shadow of the Colossus remake for the PS4, many people wondered what Bluepoint Games would do next. Metal Gear Solid was one of the names that came up. But the cat was soon out of the bag when that project was finally shown off at a PlayStation demo.
When the PS5 came out, none of the games were as impressive as Demon’s Souls, which was a remake of a classic FromSoftware game from the PS3 era. Not only did it change everything about the 2009 game from the ground up, but it also made a number of quality-of-life changes that made the game easier for people to play today. And it did all of that while using current rendering techniques to make something that looked both new and like the original.
