Playstation 5: Every PS4 Game That Runs Better On PS5 | Unlocked Framerates & Upgrade Patches

days gone

The Playstation 5 is 99% backwards compatible with the PS4 library — with a very small number of notable exceptions — but that doesn’t mean all your games will play better than before. For the most part, games play essentially exactly the same.

Most backwards compatibility is just for your own convenience so you don’t need to keep both machines hooked up. But, a small number of games gain huge improvements — and we’re not talking about games with free upgrades to their PS5 version. These are PS4-only games that work better when played on the PS5.

[Work-in-Progress: This list is subject to change as more patches are released to improve existing games, and as we test more games on the PS5.]
