With Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor joining the list of games on PS4 (The first third party game) with the popular Photo Mode feature, I’ve been thinking about other titles and how cool it would be to have it. Photo Mode isn’t for everyone, but those who enjoy toying around with it will agree that it adds another layer of fun to whatever game they are playing. The really creative players can pull off some really impressive snapshots.

With that being said below is a list of upcoming and recently released games that would be even more fun with an added Photo Mode. I’m referring to the PlayStation 4 versions since the Xbox One doesn’t have the ability (Yet) to take screenshots. Also seeing as there is a high chance that each AAA PS4 exclusives will be including it, I didn’t bother listing Bloodborne and The Order: 1886.
Grand Theft Auto V – November 18, 2014
Rockstar’s latest in its ever popular open-world franchise will be making its way onto the current gen consoles next month. The option to capture whatever crazy antics players will get into when roaming the huge city of Los Santos, is too good of an opportunity to pass up. Epic vehicle stunts, insane shootouts, hooker roadkill and whatever other form of carnage you can pull off. Of course you could also take some breathtaking 1080p shots of the city and mountains and share them for the world to see.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity – November 11, 2014
Another open-world title, this time set in Paris during the French Revolution. Being able to capture protagonist Arno Dorian as he engages in combat against the Templars, performs stealth kills, shows of his sweet parkour skills while scaling large buildings and even taking that iconic leap of faith would be something fans would get carried away with. Too bad the game won’t feature naval battles.
WWE 2K15 – November 18, 2014
Not an open-world title, but developer Yukes and 2K games upcoming wrestling game would benefit from this feature. Fans of the game series love to share their content with one another; from their created wrestlers to story lines. With Photo Mode players would become even more share crazy, capturing all kinds of insane shots the wrestlers executing their finishing moves, delivering chair shots, performing high flying moves from ladders and more.
EA Sports UFC – June 17, 2014
Another title that involves sweaty shirtless combatants, grappling and punching your opponents in the face. EA Sports UFC has been out for a few months now but it continues to receive support, including new fighters and takedown moves. So why not Photo Mode? Who wouldn’t want to be able to snap a close up picture of Bruce Lee jamming his foot into the face of Jon Bones or Rhonda Rousey dropping her opponent on their head with a suplex? Yeah, thought so.
The Evil Within – October 14, 2014
The latest survival horror game (Our Review here) from the mind of Shinji Mikami, would be another great candidate for a Photo Mode inclusion. Protagonist Sebastian Castellanos will come face to face with countless enemies in his quest to discover the truth. With PM, players would be able to capture some truly disturbing images including the many horrific deaths that will undoubtedly befall poor Sebastian.
