After keeping fans waiting for a long time, Sony finally revealed the PlayStation 5 console and a plethora of games in the PlayStation 5 Reveal event. The reveals included a wide range of titles, including first-person shooters to RPGs and racing games. Fans got to know more about the games they can expect to release on the PlayStation 5 and a sneak peek into what the next-gen has to offer.
Alongside the games showcased at the event, there have been several announcements for the PlayStation 5 by third-party developers. Some of the titles will be released on current-gen consoles as well. Here are all first-party, third-party, and launch titles we know about so far.
First-party Titles (Exclusives)
Astro is moving away from virtual reality in this game packed in on the PS5, reportedly designed to show off the DualSense controller’s capabilities. Each area will be based upon a specific feature present in the DualSense controller, and it will allow players to get an experience of what the DualSense controller can offer.
Bugsnax (timed exclusive)
From the makers of Octodad, Bugsnax is filled with a half bug, half food creatures that change the bodies of the characters that eat them. While we know little about the game now, it seems really interesting and adds a lot of variety to the PS5’s library.
Deathloop sees two rival assassins face off against each other as they try to wipe out an island’s leadership. This game comes from Arkane, and there are plenty fo Dishonored-like gameplay cues in here. It is a PS5 console launch exclusive coming Holiday 2020.
Bluepoint Games is a studio well-known for its work on remakes of popular PlayStation properties. They bring that success to the PS5 with a complete remake of Demon’s Souls, the predecessor of Dark Souls. Demon’s Souls was the first title in the Soulsborne genre, and it is one of the most sought out remakes.
Destruction Allstars looks like a battle royale that focuses on vehicular combat, and can also be played on foot. This game will probably serve as the ruthless stress-buster we need on our consoles.
Ghostwire: Tokyo (timed)
Another Bethesda game and another PS5 launch timed-exclusive. Shinji Mikami’s newest game had gameplay revealed after being announced at E3 2019.
Godfall is a game being developed by Gearbox, creators of Borderlands, for the PS5 and Epic Games Store this holiday season. Little is known about the game so far beyond the trailer above shown at the Game Awards. The official Godfall Twitter account describes the game as a “next-gen looter-slasher from Counterplay Games & @Gearboxofficial. Set in a bright fantasy universe, utilize melee combat for hunting for loot, donning legendary armor sets, and pursuing vicious enemies.”
Goodbye Volcano High (timed)
A cinematic narrative game that touches on love, friendship, and self-realization in the final days of childhood and the move towards adulthood.
Gran Turismo 7
The fan-favorite Gran Turismo franchise is returning once again on the PS5. While Sony hasn’t revealed much about the game, we know that the game will be focusing on the franchise’s core premise.
Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon: Zero Dawn’s sequel sees Aloy trying to save the wildlife in a new location destroyed by storms. No actual gameplay has been shown off yet. This could be a potential Fall 2021 title, but no release window has been given as of this writing.
Oddworld: Soulstorm (timed)
Abe returns in this game, launching on both PS4 and PS5. The game will incorporate a plethora of new features and be a direct sequel to Oddworld New’n’Tasty.
Project Athia was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the PS5 reveal event. The game will be open-world, and it is developed by the same team which was behind ‘Final Fantasy XV.’
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Inter-dimensional rifts, more insane weapons, and a new lombax? The latest Ratchet & Clank game looks bigger and better than ever. While there is no release date yet, the fact that Insomniac showed off so much of the game could hint that this will release in the launch window of the PS5.
Relive this character’s crash, the attack, and death on repeat in this sci-fi action game. Every time you die, the planet you are on changes, so your skills will always be challenged in this third-person shooter.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure
Sackboy from the LittleBig Planet games is getting his own 3D platforming adventure with up to four-player cooperative play. This could be a second chance for the little guy to really nail down his spot as one of PlayStation’s iconic mascots.
Spider-Man Miles Morales
While many fans were waiting for the sequel of the critically acclaimed Spider-Man PS4, it seems like they will have to wait longer for it. Insomniac announced that the next Spider-Man title will be Spider-Man Miles Morales, a standalone game about half the size of the previous title. It is coming holiday 2020, so it is a good bet to be a day one launch title.
In a world ruled by robots, it looks like you play as a stray cat as the only non-artificial life shown in this trailer. We have a lot more questions than answers looking at this trailer, but it is coming to PS5 in 2021.
