The list includes Dying Light 2: Stay Human, Need for Speed Unbound, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and also Fortnite after switching to Unreal Engine 5 and implementing Lumen, Nanite, and other technologies from Unreal Engine 5.1. Two other PlayStation titles, Gran Turismo 7 and The Last of Us Part 1, stand out on the list.
