First games that work with Dolby Atmos on PlayStation 5

22 Sep 2023 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony has updated PlayStation 5 to support Dolby Atmos in games and apps. Here are the first PS5 games that can be enjoyed in Dolby's most advanced audio format.

Sony's implementation of Dolby Atmos in PS5 is twofold. It is explained in more detail in this article, but in brief:
  1. All games that utilize Sony's own Tempest 3D AudioTech work automatically in Dolby Atmos output to HDMI devices.
  2. Existing or new games can be updated or created with a bespoke Dolby Atmos mix.
So far, there are no examples of the latter, but given that Dolby Atmos is already supported on Xbox, it seems likely that some game developers will streamline their development process in the future. To activate Dolby Atmos on your PS5, go to Settings -> Sound -> Audio Output -> Audio Format (Priority) -> Dolby Atmos. Note: Be aware that PS5 supports Dolby Atmos only with HDMI devices, not headphones. Atmos game audio is transmitted as Dolby MAT 2.0 (PCM with Atmos metadata), which means your TV must support HDMI eARC (regular ARC is not sufficient) or alternatively you must pass the PS5's HDMI signal through a receiver/soundbar before reaching the TV. If none of those two scenarios are possible, significant audio delay may occur with Atmos game audio from PS5 (and Xbox).

Cyberpunk 2077 Atmos

Some games were shipped with Tempest 3D Audio while others have had it added through a next-gen update such as Cyberpunk 2077

  2. Astro's Playroom
  3. Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War
  4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
  5. Cyberpunk 2077
  6. Days Gone
  7. Death Stranding Director's Cut
  8. Demon's Souls
  9. Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
  10. Destruction: AllStars
  11. F1 22
  12. Final Fantasy XIV
  13. Grand Theft Auto V
  14. GTA Online
  15. Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut
  16. Ghostwire: Tokyo
  17. Gran Turismo 7
  18. Hogwarts Legacy
  19. Horizon: Forbidden West
  20. Hunter's Arena: Legends
  21. Immortals Fenyx Rising
  22. Marvel's Avengers
  23. Marvel's Spider-Man 2
  24. MLB: The Show 21
  25. MLB: The Show 22
  26. MLB: The Show 23
  27. Need for Speed Unbound
  28. No Man's Sky
  29. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
  30. Resident Evil 4: Remake
  31. Resident Evil: Village
  32. Returnal
  33. Sackboy: A Big Adventure
  34. Season: A letter to the future
  35. Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  36. Spider-Man: Remastered
  37. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
  38. The Last of Us: Part I
  39. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  40. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt
  41. Wild Hearts
It is worth adding that some PS4 games advertise '3D audio,' but this is not sufficient. There are also PS5 games that advertise 'spatial audio', '3D audio' or similar, but this is not necessarily Tempest and if it is not then they will not work with Dolby Atmos on PS5.
