PS5: The best online PS4 games in backward compatibility

PS5: The best online PS4 games in backward compatibility
The PS5 debut in Italy is now very close, and many gamers are wondering if their favorite multiplayer-based games will work on the new Sony console just like on the PS4.

As we know, the backward compatibility of PlayStation 5 implies that the the vast majority of the software currently available will be able to run without problems on the next-gen platform, in several cases boasting substantial technical improvements.

So let's try to understand which are the most valuable online experiences that we can abandon on PlayStation 4 and resume on PS5 without any fear!

Apex Legends

With its seventy million players, Apex Legends will obviously be backwards compatible with PS5 and the developers have already announced the first technical advantages for the landing on the new Sony console, namely a resolution brought to 1440p, an even more stable frame rate but also further updates that will arrive in the course of 2021.

Respawn Entertainment's battle royale, which has just kicked off Season 7, will continue to grow also on the next-gen and the addition of new modes that can transform the experience in something even richer and more meaningful, pushing the boundaries of this popular sub-genre. So let's think of traditional multiplayer matches, but also of any cooperative implications: the possibilities are many.

Call of Duty: Warzone

From one successful battle royale to another , also Call of Duty: Warzone will make its debut on PS5 without any compatibility problem and maintaining all the features that distinguish it, but will receive the first targeted updates in conjunction with the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, increasing the game resolution but not only.

One of the advantages of the next-gen Sony console is in fact represented by its very fast SSD, which even in the case of the shooter produced by Activision will result in substantially reduced loading times. In the case of Warzone, the waiting times for the lobbies decrease significantly already in backward compatibility and the situation will only improve with the official updates.

Destiny 2

Also for Destiny 2 we talk of backward compatibility pending an official update that introduces a series of technical improvements designed specifically for PS5. The Beyond the Light expansion is therefore already available and works on next-gen platforms, complete with support for cross-platform multiplayer, while the actual upgrade will arrive on December 8th.

No surprises therefore for the Bungie shooter, solid and spectacular as always, which over the last three years has been able to involve a large community of players, promptly listening to their feedback and implementing these suggestions in conjunction with the launch of the new seasons.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Although its prices are currently down, after the extraordinary and surprising debut in August, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has no intention of giving way and will indeed take advantage of the PS5 debut to relaunch its contents, trying to re-engage the many users who were passionate about this bizarre battle royale-style experience.

An update uff icial that introduces technical improvements and new features with the transition to PlayStation 5 has not yet been announced by the development team, Mediatonic, but backwards compatibility is ensured and will guarantee a smooth transition to the next-gen, waiting for an update that can make the most of the features of the new hardware.

FIFA 21 and PES 2021 Season Update

The new editions of the two football games par excellence, FIFA 21 and eFootball PES 2021 Season Update, will work without problems in backward compatibility on PS5, keeping intact even the competitive or cooperative multiplayer features and the most popular modes among users, in particular FIFA Ultimate Team and MyClub.

However, between the two products there is an important difference: whereas for a truly next-gen version of Pro Evolution Soccer we will have to wait until next year, FIFA 21 will receive an upgrade designed specifically for PS5 and Xbox Series X on December 4th is. Among the novelties of the update, the improvements made to the polygonal models of the players stand out, even more realistic in particular as regards the effects.


Impossible to imagine a list of games based multiplayer to be used on PS5 without inserting a costume phenomenon like Fortnite, although in the case of the Epic Games battle royale we will find an update already on day one that will not only guarantee the functioning of the game on the new Sony console but will introduce a whole series of improvements .

We start first from 4K at 60 fps, but the changes extend to the physics and the scenery, which apparently will react in an unprecedented way to the explosions and offer a more realistic rendering of the climatic conditions. That's not all: there will be support for the haptic feedback of the DualSense controller, which will allow us to "feel" the shots differently depending on the weapon used.

Marvel's Avengers

The ambitious tie-in signed by Crystal Dynamics still has a lot to prove in terms of multiplayer-based content, but fans of the various Iron Man, Thor and Captain America continue to have fun with the cooperative War Zones and will be able to do so also on PS5 thanks to backwards compatibility, waiting for an official update that will arrive only in the course of 2021.

Marvel's Avengers still suffers from a series of glitches and uncertainties that make some sequences particularly chaotic, but has undoubted potential and the advent of next-gen platforms promises to fill these technical gaps. Until then, the hope is that at least in terms of new content the developers will give themselves a wake up call.

Monster Hunter World

Another round, another cooperative experience in backwards compatibility, this time the one offered by Monster Hunter World. The hunting game developed by Capcom not only runs smoothly on PS5, while also maintaining its online functionality, but enjoys an improved frame rate that reaches 60 stable frames during action.

So let's talk about a clearly enhanced visual impact compared to what is seen on the base PS4 and PS4 Pro, with a fluidity that makes the monster hunting sequences even more enjoyable, both those that we decide to face alone and those carried out together with three other adventure companions, between spectacular fights and the inevitable loot to be collected for the creation of new equipment.

Rainbow Six: Siege

Rainbow Six: Siege, Ubisoft's competitive tactical shooter, runs on PS5 in backward compatibility and maintains all its features, bringing its load of content, Operators and exciting modes to the next-gen console, which not surprisingly have so far involved tens of millions of players in all to the world.

However, this is also an ongoing project: the French company has announced that by the end of the year a free update will be released for owners of the new platforms that it will introduce a series of notable technical improvements, bringing the frame rate up to 120 fps for a highly accurate online experience.

Rocket League

Powered by the brand new free-to-play format, which will undoubtedly help to consolidate the already huge and passionate community of the original Psyonix sports racer, Rocket League is one of the many titles that work without problems on PS5 thanks to backwards compatibility and which can therefore be played online just like on PS4, by taking advantage of of cross-play.

By the end of the year, however, the development team will roll out an update (obviously free) aimed at taking advantage of the new hardware, and in the case of the Sony console that will translate in graphics that go up to real 4K and 60 frames per second, with the possibility of eventually reaching 120 fps in the future.
