Of the many different ways that video games are upping their presentations, from 4K resolution to 120 FPS performance, support for ultrawide monitors is perhaps the most underrated. This isn’t a new feature by any means but 21:9 monitors are more common than ever. So which titles would benefit the most from all of that extra screen space? Let’s take a look at 15 of them here. Just be warned – for some of these games, you’ll need a fairly good rig to run them in ultrawide resolutions.
The Order: 1886
Ready at Dawn’s supernatural action adventure title is an odd title, one that never really hit its stride and ended too soon. Nevertheless, the art design and universe were incredible, and the controversial black bars on the top and bottom of the screen disappear when playing on a 21:9 monitor (since that is the game’s aspect ratio). It just makes you wish for a PS5 update all the more, just to see how much better the game would look at higher resolutions natively.
