Virtual reality offers a unique way to experience video games, transporting players to different worlds and continuing to blur the line between gaming and reality. The technology isn’t for everyone, however. Traditional displays still deliver fantastic gaming experiences, and with the addition of Tobii’s Eye Tracker, games can feel just as lifelike without the need to wear a bulky headset.

By setting up a Tobii Eye Tracker for use with your PC, you can control certain aspects of your favorite games — and occasionally entire games — with nothing more than your gaze. This can create stronger emotional bonds between you and the in-game characters, streamline clunky control schemes, and breathe new life into older games.

A few features of the Tobii Eye Tracker are common across several supported games. Aiming or controlling the camera with your eyes, often called “Aim at gaze,” is seen on a number of third-person and first-person shooters, as is “Extended View,” which pans out the camera when your eyes hit the edge of the screen. A third feature, “Clean UI,” hides the majority of on-screen information until you stare at a particular piece, such as a health bar or map. Below, we’ve created a table listing all the games that use Tobii technology, as well as the features you can expect to use in them.

All the games that support AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution
A woman wielding a weapon jumps out of red smoke.

AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) is here, promising up to a 2.5 times performance increase in supported games across Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. Not only are old and new games alike getting FSR support, but AMD is also improving FSR itself, which is now in version 2.0. Although FSR 2.0 doesn't always look quite as good as Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), it has better support for GPUs from both graphics companies and for most will provide about the same image quality as Nvidia's upscaler.

At the moment, the vast majority of games that support FSR use version 1.0, but that's only because version 2.0 is much newer. Over the coming months, many games will be adding FSR 2.0 to its graphics options.

Every PlayStation game you can play on PC
Kratos fighting monsters in God of War.

Besides Nintendo, PlayStation has been the most precious with keeping their exclusive games locked to their consoles of any console maker. All the way into the PS4's lifecycle, it was all but assured that any exclusive title that came to that console would never appear on any other console. However, things started to shift when exclusivity deals Sony struck began to allow games coming to their console to also release on PC at the same time. This, along with Xbox making a major push with Game Pass Ultimate that brought nearly that entire library to PC, made many wonder if Sony would ever embrace the PC market.

Initially testing the waters with single releases, PlayStation has finally decided to make a bigger effort to bring their exclusive games to the PC storefront. With reports stating that Sony expects their PC revenue to increase by more than three times by 2023 alone, it's safe to say that owning a PS5 won't be the only way to play their amazing titles forever. That being said, they still have only just begun this process, leaving many games still locked to their hardware. For a full list of all the available PlayStation exclusives you can get on PC, plus the ones we know will be coming in the future, check out this comprehensive list.
