The PlayStation 4 Pro lands in just a week, bringing with it boosted CPU and GPU, 4K resolution and that sweet, sweet HDR tech.

But what games will actually let you make use of all of those lovely resolutions and whatnots? This morning, the European PlayStation Blog dropped a list of the 44 titles that will be optimized for the new console on launch day. The blog post promises that more than 45 will be optimized for the console by the end of the year including Watch Dogs 2, The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy 15.

That optimization work will of course continue into next year, with the blog post confirming that Nioh, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard and For Honor are all getting the treatment in early 2017.

But wait, what about not early 2017? Like mid-2017 or simply 2017?

According to the blog post all first-party games moving forward will be optimized. Titles on that list include: Gravity Rush 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone and Gran Turismo Sport.

Among the standouts for launch day optimization are Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, RIGS Mechanized Combat League and The Last of Us Remastered. Does that make the last one The Last of Us Remastereded?
