The PlayStation 5 is one of the most highly anticipated consoles and its release is quickly upon us. As a result, many are wondering what games are going to be available for the PS5 at launch and beyond. Therefore, in this article, we have created a comprehensive list of the best PS5 games.
Sony has also confirmed numerous gaming titles for its new console with many more expected. So, we have included a wide and diverse variety of those PlayStation 5 games covering many different gaming genres. We have also included video trailers of each game. This PS5 games list was created to be a resource and will be updated as more PS5 games are announced.
Final Fantasy XVI (PS5 Exclusive)
You’ve got to hand it to Sony and Square Enix. They sure do know how to put on a show.
The trailer for the Final Fantasy XVI was a show-stopper. It was easily the highlight of the entire evening, leaving gamers to pick up their jaws off of the floor from how beautiful and amazing it looked.
Seriously. Words can’t even begin to describe what the next Final Fantasy title looked like from the trailers.
Perhaps the best part about this is that Square Enix is finally going back to the medieval setting. This means that fans who loved the more underrated releases in Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy IV will have so much more to feel excited about.
In terms of combat, Final Fantasy XVI looks like it will take cues from Fantal Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
Speaking of the remake, with a part two expected to drop soon, we’ll likely see the “sequel” to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake first before we get a chance to play Final Fantasy XVI.
Although from the looks of the trailer alone, we’d have to say, it’ll be worth the wait.
God of War: Ragnarok (PS5 Exclusive)
God of War: Ragnarok was arguably Soný’s worst-kept secret. It was bound to happen after the success of 2018’s God of War.
It was more of a when and not if.
Thankfully, we finally got a chance to see when the next God of War will release. Just like the previous titles featuring everybody’s rage-filled spartan, it’ll be a Playstation exclusive.
The next-gen God of War title is God of War: Ragnarok, which, as the name suggests, should revolve around the end of times in Norse mythology. This is further emphasized by the Omega symbol shown off by the end of the trailer. God of War: Ragnarok is expected to release some time in 2021.
Just like clockwork, the pandemic couldn’t stop the release of a new FIFA title.
Unlike previous FIFA titles, FIFA 21 could very well be the biggest jump for the franchise yet, as it aims to take full advantage of what the PS5 has to offer. This means that, instead of just better-looking graphics and a couple of updates here and there, we should see FIFA 21 make full use of the haptic feedback feature of the all-new DualSense.
Of course, if the gameplay trailer is to go by, there’ll be plenty of new gameplay features arriving with the FIFA 21.
This includes, among many others, a fun mode that lets you do undo events mid-match, and many more.
For years, there have been rumors of a Harry Potter title in the works.
Finally, we got a confirmation of it at the PS5 price reveal event.
Set in the 1800s at a time well before we saw the rise of Voldemort and the events of any of the Harry Potter novels and films so far, Hogwarts Legacy will reportedly feature a player-created character trying to navigate his or her way through the magical Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Unfortunately, outside of glimpses of what the game could look like, we don’t really know much about Hogwarts Legacy.
Hogwarts Legacy is expected to release in 2021 for the PS5.
Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War
After dabbling with the future, popular shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield are bringing it back to the good old days. M
Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War, in particular, will bring gamers back to the Cold War era.
Thanks to the trailer, we already know what to expect from the latest Black Ops title.
Fan favourites such as Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Jason Hudson will all return in this all-new shooter. Their mission? Find out who the Soviet spy Perseus is, who, by the way, is based on an actual person that supposedly successfully infiltrated the US government at the time.
While there’s no word on a release date yet, we’ve already seen enough of the intriguing storyline and action-packed gameplay to get excited.
Not to be outdone, the latest Battlefield title will also make its way to the PlayStation 5.
Battlefield has been one of if not the best realistic first-person shooters for well over a decade, Battlefield 6 could be the best yet as the franchise is expected to return to modern military-based warfare.
However, unlike Call of Duty: Black Ops- Cold War, Electronic Arts nor DICE have released much info about Battlefield 6.
The only thing we know so far is it’s set for a 2021 release on the PlayStation 5 and it’s going to be a gorgeous title.
After taking gamers to the middle ages with The Witcher video game series, CD Projekt have now set their eyes on a dystopian futuristic setting with Cyberpunk 2077.
Set in the fictional Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 will let players choose from eight different operatives known as “Edgerunners”. Players will then be able to explore the world with their said operative however they want. Accordingly, any and all decisions the player makes will have both immediate and long-term effects on the game.
We’ve already had multiple chances to see Cyberpunk 2077 in action. This means that gamers can’t just wait to get their hands on it.
Thankfully, the developers have since confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on the PS5. In fact, even better, it’ll essentially be a launch title. The game is set to launch on November 19. This puts its release date just a week after the PlayStation 5 will be made available on November 12.
If something’s not broken, then don’t bother fixing it. Or, at least, that’s how the common saying usually goes. NBA 2K21 is a good example of that.
Ever since they started the NBA 2K franchise, 2K Games has gone on to become the de-facto developer of many sports titles, especially when it comes to basketball. They even managed to supplant Electronic Arts, who, for years, had a stranglehold on the basketball sports simulator genre.
Even though the developers have been criticized for not really changing things much up year by year, you can’t really blame them when the formula has consistently worked. For NBA 2K21, you can expect more of the same as that of NBA 2K20.
In fact, one could argue that you could get away with just having last year’s title on your PS4 and updating the roster. Except, of course, it won’t be a PS5 title, as NBA 2K21 will be once the PS5 launches, and by then, the numerous differences will be noticeable, as NBA 2K21 is set to benefit from everything the PS5 has, including haptic feedback, and of course, better hardware.
Already, NBA 2K21 gives players more freedom than before. Case in point, you now have a much more diverse range of motion with the right stick, and shot-stick aiming feels more accurate and lifelike. Not to mention, there are small improvements as well, all of which might sound like optional, but in totality, makes NBA 2K21 well worth getting on the PS5.
As an added bonus, playing MyTeam in NBA 2K21 feels a lot less like playing “who can spend more money?”
Arguably the current poster boy of the video game industry, Fortnite has taken the world by storm.
Quirky, fun, innovative, and colorful, all the while featuring a surprising amount of depth in gameplay, Fortnite takes all the seriousness commonly associated with shooters and daps on a child-friendly aesthetic with mechanics taken from another popular title in Minecraft to create a game that caters to both the young and old.
There’s no denying it. Fortnite is arguably the most popular video game today. In case you doubt it, you only need to take a look at the numbers, where Fortnite boasts more than 350 million registered players as of 2020.
Hate it or love it, Fortnite’s popularity will only continue to grow with the next-generation consoles.
Rainbow Six Siege
A late bloomer, Rainbow Six Siege didn’t gain much attention when it first came out in 2015.
Critics praised it for its tactical and strategical depth, as well as focus on multiplayer. However, many pointed out that it lacked content and a proper progression system to draw in players. As a result, the initial sales were low. But, instead of being discouraged, Ubisoft Montreal worked hard to constantly tweak and improve Rainbow Six Siege over the years.
The result? Nearly five years later, Rainbow Six Siege has evolved into one of the premier tactical online shooters today.
Perhaps more importantly, Rainbow Six Siege has become a legitimate esport title.
Look to Rainbow Six Siege to continue innovating well into the current decade as it launches on the PlayStation 5.
Rainbow Six Quarantine
Initially set for an early 2020 release, Rainbow Six Quarantine has since found itself going MIA. However, Ubisoft seems intent on pushing through with other titles that suffered similar fates. This includes titles such as Watch Dogs: Legion and the former Gods and Monsters game, now titled Immortals Fenyx Rising.
With that said,we should expect Rainbow Six Quarantine to come sooner rather than later.
Now, what exactly is the game all about?
Rainbow Six Quarantine is essentially the full-game version of Rainbow Six Siege’s limited-time event, Outbreak.
For those that do not know, the Outbreak event saw the game’s Operators fight off an alien parasite. This included an all-new cinematic specifically made for the event. The mode encompassed three lengthy and highly-praised stages.
Ubisoft has not talked much about Rainbow Six Quarantine since last summer. However, there are plenty of rumors swirling about. Chief among them is that the game will take the same approach as Outbreak. The main difference is that the pandemic will extend to a more massive, nationwide scale.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5 Exclusive)
Arguably the most-hyped exclusive to hit the PlayStation 5 at launch, Spider-Man: Morales will see the African-American web-slinger finally take center stage.
Unfortunately Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be more of an expansion than a full release. But, hey, can we really complain? Even though it’s technically not a new title, it will arguably come with an entire title’s worth of new content. Not to mention, being that it’s one of Sony’s premier franchises, we can expect it to help showcase the PlayStation 5 to the best of its abilities.
After all, we’ve already seen Sony use 2018’s Spider-Man title to help prove that the PS5’s SSD is legit.
Who’s to say that they can’t improve it even further? Not to mention, with the added processing power that comes with the PlayStation 5, and we can’t just wait for Spider-Man: Miles Morales to arrive, expansion or not.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
After skipping a year for the first time since the first Assassin’s Creed title came out in 2007, Ubisoft has finally unveiled the latest installment in one of the industry’s premier stealth-action franchise.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will take players back to the Dark Ages where they’ll take control of the Viking assassin Eivor.
Similar to the last two Assassin’s Creed titles, Origins and Odyssey, the 2020 title will heavily feature RPG elements. This includes robust character customization options. In addition to this are dialogue options that will decide what will happen next or down the line in the game, for better or for worse.
Of course, at its very core, this is still an Assassin’s Creed title. This means that the requisite leaping, climbing, and stabbing will always be there. The only difference? You’ll be doing it across the four kingdoms of 9th century United Kingdom this time around.
Horizon: Forbidden West (PS5 Exclusive)
Horizon: Forbidden West could’ve taken the take as the most-awaited launch title for the PlayStation 5 if it released along with the next-generation console.
It’s quite sad that it won’t, not that anyone’s focusing on that right now though.
The thing is Horizon: Forbidden West was arguably the highlight of the PlayStation 5 games showcase. Although most of the titles showcased the added power of Sony’s next-generation console, it was Horizon: Forbidden West that many felt was able to properly take the leap from the previous generation to the next generation.
It was amazing, in a nutshell.
Set in a far-future America where everything is as dangerous as it is beautiful, Horizon: Forbidden West will once again feature Alloy as she goes on to explore westward.
Judging from what we’ve already seen so far from Horizon: Forbidden West, it’s clear that the pressure to follow-up one of the biggest surprise hits of the decade hasn’t caught up with its developers, Guerilla Games.
Demon’s Souls (PS5 Exclusive)
We’ve got games that will test the limits of the PlayStation 5 already.
Now, here’s a game that will test just how durable the PlayStation 5 and its all-new controller, the DualSense, is going to be.
A full-on remake of the cult-classic that released way back in 2009 for the PlayStation 3, Demon’s Souls will look to torment gamers once again, albeit now, it’s clad with a shiny new armor and more detailed, yet grotesque monsters.
As if that’s not enough, this project is being handled by Bluepoint Games and Japan Studio.
A studio that specializes in modernizing older titles, Bluepoint Games is responsible for giving gamers modern takes on old classics such as the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and the Shadow of the Colossus remake,among many other titles.
With such an established name behind it and an already excellent source material, expect controllers to come flying straight to walls once Demon’s Souls arrives on the PlayStation 5.
Deathloop (PS5 Exclusive)
Bethesda Softworks will play the role of publishers to Arkane Studios once again with the release of the timed PS5 exclusive, Deathloop.
An extremely intriguing title featuring time-loop elements, the first-person action-adventure title will have players playing both as the hunter and the hunted, or is it the hunter and the hunter? Whichever the case is, Deathloop will be a title to watch out for.
Set in an island where the party never ends, Deathloop will have players taking control of Cult, a man whose goal is to take down eight targets as soon as possible. But, being someone with such a mission, he’s not without opposition. In addition to the enemies he’ll have to take down to get to his targets, he’ll also be chased by Julianna, another character who players will also be able to control.
If you loved going all out in Dishonored, rats be damned, then you’ll surely love the more action-oriented Deathloop.
Gran Turismo 7 (PS5 Exclusive)
It’s been seven years since we saw a numbered release for the Gran Turismo franchise, so it was only a matter of time before we saw Gran Turismo release for either the current-generation and the next-generation consoles.
Thankfully, we’re going to get it just in time for the PlayStation 5.
Spearheaded by Polyphony Digital once again, we can expect Gran Turismo 7 to captivate us with beautiful graphics. But, more than that, we have even more of a reason to get hyped for this release with the return of a number of classic features, such as Special Events, Driving School, and GT Auto, among others, with a couple of returning modern modes such as GT Sport Mode and Brand Central, among others.
With a mix of old and new, Gran Turismo 7 is looking more than just the glorified tech demo that many expected it would be.
Madden NFL 21
Already available on current-gen consoles, Madden 21 will make its way to the PlayStation 5 at launch later this year.
Described as the smoothest and most customizable Madden title yet, Madden 21 made full use of what was available to it for the PlayStation 4. However, once it’s available on the PlayStation 5, expect some things to change.
In addition to faster loading times and access to better hardware, Madden 21 should also benefit from the haptic feedback of the DualSense. Some also believe that Sony will make spatialized audio available in Madden 21 for the PlayStation 5, although that has yet to be confirmed.
All in all, Madden 21 is still the best football game in years, and it’s only going to get better for the PlayStation 5.
Godfall (PS5 Exclusive)
A PS5-exclusive title, Godfall is backed by some of the biggest names in the gaming industry.
Its publishers, Gearbox, are the same people behind the award-winning shooter-looter Borderlands franchise. Meanwhile, the developers, Counterplay Games, were one of the studios tapped in the creation of hit PS4-exclusive, God of War, which released in 2018.
Judging from the looks of it, Godfall is looking more like Borderlands than God of War. However, it seems to share the same aesthetics as sci-fi looter-shooters Warframe and Destiny 2.
The developers, however, are adamant that Godfall is not a looter-shooter. Instead, they believe that it’ll be the start of a new genre that uses loot-to-win mechanics. Yet, at the same time, they claim that gameplay will reward players for actually knowing how to play the game well rather than just relying on constant, mindless grinding.
Just how exactly Counterplay Games aims to accomplish that, we don’t know just yet.
What we do know is that Godfall is set to be one hell of a spectacle. This is largely thanks to the impressive hardware available on the PlayStation 5.
Marvel’s Avengers admittedly had an impossible task: top or match the quality of any of the Marvel movies that preceded it.
Unfortunately, it fell flat if held to those same standards.
If, however, you’re looking for a comic book action movie in video game form, then Marvel’s Avengers delivers.
Charming, entertaining, and with nearly every hero well-acted and utilized properly (well, except for Thor, who is pretty much just there for whatever reason), Marvel’s Avengers was proof that you can have an ensemble cast of overpowered superheroes in a video game.
The fact that it was able to pull it off means that it’s a proof of concept that other developers should look to follow.
With Marvel’s Avengers expected to release on the PlayStation 5 with much-needed next-gen graphical improvements, and of course, the benefit of having had months to hash out any of the launch issues and bugs, we wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up aging well like fine wine.
The Elder Scrolls VI
Because of their official confirmation at E3 2018, we know already that The Elder Scrolls VI exists. Unfortunately, when we’ll get a chance to play it isn’t known just yet. It isn’t exactly Bethesda Game Studios’ focus right now — see Starfield.
If the previous games are any indication, however, The Elder Scrolls VI should be another genre-defining single-player role-playing game that should, at the very least, be good for a fresh set of memes for years to come.
The Last of Us: Part 2 (PS5 Exclusive)
Does Sony really need to confirm that The Last of Us: Part 2 will be available on the PlayStation 5?
The original title, The Last of Us, was one of the last premier titles to release on the PlayStation 3, pushing the aging console to its limits. Naturally, the game eventually made its way to the PlayStation 4 with the necessary improvements, albeit not as a launch title.
With The Last of Us: Part 2 set to release on June 19, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, there’s plenty of time left to work on a possible launch date release for the PlayStation 5.
The much-awaited sequel to 2012’s Borderlands 2 did not disappoint with its 2019 release.
Bringing with it the franchise’s now-signature chaotic gunplay and looting, Borderlands 3 is proof that the franchise has yet to find an equal when it comes to providing shooter fans with a wide arsenal of absurd yet incredibly detailed weaponry.
It also doesn’t hurt that Borderlands 3 gives gamers a replayable 30-hour campaign to toy around in.
Considered by many as the best Borderlands title yet, the action role-playing first-person shooter should only get better as it receives graphical improvements and other necessary updates as it makes its debut on Sony’s next-gen console.
Ghostwire: Tokyo (PS5 Exclusive)
It seems that Shinji Mikami wasn’t going to let the PlayStation 5 showcase pass without letting his presence be felt.
The man behind successful horror franchises like Resident Evil and Dino Crisis, as well as most recently, The Evil Within, the founder of Tango Gameworks, wants to upend the survival-horror genre once again with the release of Ghostwire: Tokyo.
Unlike his previous titles were action and gunplay were limited, Ghostwire: Tokyo will eliminate it entirely.
Set in a fictionalized Tokyo where everything has been replaced with ghosts taken straight out of Japanese folklore, Ghostwire: Tokyo will also reportedly take full advantage of the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers of the all-new DualSense controller to create a more immersive gaming experience featuring Ninja-inspired hand signs.
Quantum Error is a little-known title that’s quickly making rounds over the internet thanks to its hair-raising trailer.
Coming completely out of nowhere, Quantum Error is dubbed by its developers as a cosmic-horror first-person shooter. Judging from the trailer alone, it certainly seems like they’ve got the horror element down pat.
Also, it features zombies in space, which is arguably well worth the price of admission alone.
Of course, trailers are one thing. We’ll need to have some actual gameplay first to know if the game delivers.
Outriders is another title made in the same mold as the likes of Destiny and Warframe.
But while similar to Godfall in some ways, Outriders differs in that it is a multiplayer-centric title. Not to mention, it takes on a far more serious tone. It’s also set as a cross-generation title that players will have a chance to play on current-generation consoles and next-generation consoles once it launches.
Outriders’ developers, People Can Fly, is the former Epic Games Poland and helped co-develop Fortnite: Save the World and Gears of War 3. Meanwhile, its publishers are Square Enix.
With that said, Outriders has some pretty big guns behind it (pun intended).
Only time will tell if Outriders has the potential to become the Destiny of its generation if not surpass it.
Warframe is another proof that perseverance pays in the gaming industry.
Launched way back in 2013, Warframe, which remains in open beta, is a free-to-play third-person shooter set into the future where players take control of a race of ancient warriors known as Tanno who utilize the titular Warframes to wage war against the different factions of the planetary system.
Similar to other massively multiplayer online games, Warframe incorporates the use of fixed-level designs with story-specific missions and procedurally-generated levels for other missions.
In time, the developers added large open-world areas, as well as other elements, as the game has continued to evolve and grow in player count.
A true free-to-play title, Warframe supports itself through microtransactions. However, players also have the option to grind and play their way to buying expensive in-game items using in-game currency.
Watch Dogs: Legion
Another cross-generation title from Ubisoft, Watch Dogs: Legion is the third installment in the third-person, action-adventure franchise. However, unlike the first two titles whose stories revolved around a central protagonist, Watch Dogs: Legion will put a twist in that anyone and everyone is a playable character.
Set in an open-world London, the story of Watch Dogs: Legion will reportedly revolve around DedSec, an international hacker group, who are dead set on staging a revolution against the authoritarian regime that has used technology to take control of the United Kingdom.
By design, Watch Dogs: Legion will feature a more dynamic in-game narrative. Instead of a central character, you have dozens of characters to choose from. More importantly, each one will have a fleshed-out story, unique abilities, and a set of missions unique to them.
Also, it seems that Ubisoft has taken a page out of Nintendo’s Fire Emblem franchise where each character can die permanently.
With such a potentially gripping narrative and a unique take on the common action-adventure trope, Watch Dogs: Legion is surely a title to watch out for.
Another title confirmed for the next-generation console, Starfield is the first entirely new IP from Bethesda Game Studios in more than two decades.
In true Bethesda fashion though, the company responsible for classic franchises such as The Elder Scrolls and the reboot of the Fallout titles, has remained mum about any details regarding the game. In fact, outside of an E3 2018 teaser showing a satellite floating near what looks like a black hole, we don’t know much about what Starfield is.
Of course, since this is Bethesda, this is likely going to be a single-player title. But, who knows?
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will feature a drastically different take on J.R.R Tolkien’s high fantasy classic, The Lord of the Rings.
Instead of being a hack-and-slash title with a hyper-realistic art style like the Middle-Earth titles, Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will prominently feature stealth elements. Not to mention, the story will revolve around someone more familiar.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will put the spotlight on everyone’s favourite corrupted hobbit, Gollum.
The story will reportedly be set before the events that transpired in the classic books.
Dying Light 2
Dying Light is arguably one of the most underrated titles of its generation.
Featuring a unique mix of intense combat and parkour elements, Dying Light’s overall gameplay was met with high praise. However, many criticized its cliche narrative and under-developed characters, among other things.
Despite the criticism, Techland has continued releasing bits of content for Dying Light since it released in 2015. But, as it seems, they’re ready to move on and improve on what they already built with a proper sequel in Dying Light 2.
Perhaps having already learned from their mistakes, Techland will put much focus on the narrative part of the sequel. To that end, they’ve brought in Chris Avellone. His work on narrative-heavy titles such as the classic title, Planescape: Torment, and the Fallout series have earned him a reputation as one of the best in the video game industry.
Dying Light 2 will also reportedly feature a more dynamic world where everything can change depending on the actions of the player. Additionally, Techland claims that they have put much more emphasis on making the world more immersive and engrossing.
Given the severe lack of quality zombie titles in recent years, gaming audiences are likely salivating at the chance to get to play Dying Light 2.
Adrenaline junkies will surely enjoy this bit of good news.
Dirt 5 is the eighth game to carry the Dirt title and judging by the looks of it, it wants to take the highly-praised off-road racing franchise to the next generation.
Unfortunately, we don’t really know much about Dirt 5 just yet.
Outside of the early trailers and glimpses, there aren’t a lot of details available on Dirt 5. But, then again, do we really need that?
What’s important is that we know that some next-generation racing is coming to the PS5.
Ghost of Tsushima
If it feels like we’re just listing down Sony exclusives released in 2020 at this point, that’s because we are.
An open-world adventure title set in Feudal Japan, Ghost of Tsushima will put players in the shoes of Jin Sakai, one of the last remaining samurai living on Tsushima Island at the time.
Highly-received by critics and audiences alike upon its release, Ghost of Tsushima has its July 17 release date to thank. Why? This is because, according to Sony, any and all PS4 games released after July 13 should compatible with the PS5, with patches or remasters made after that date being “strongly recommended”.
Considering its release date falls just days after, it’s safe to say that fans will have a chance to experience Ghost of Tsushima’s already beautiful graphics in all of its next-gen glory on the PS5.
Immortals Fenyx Rising
Initially set to release in early 2020, Immortals Fenyx Rising, originally named Gods and Monsters, is Ubisoft’s latest IP.
This open-world action adventure title will put players in the shoes of Fenyx, a red-headed mortal blessed with god-like powers. It is then up to the Fenyx, and the players, to bring order back to a world heavily inspired by Greek mythology after Typhon, a mythical creature said to be the youngest son of Gaea and Tartarus, wreaked havoc.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is already set to release for the PlayStation 4 on December 3.
Considering that all PS4 games released past July will have to be compatible with the PS5 as Sony mandated, we expect this title to make its way to the next generation as well.
If that’s not enough proof, we do know that Ubisoft has officially confirmed this themselves.
Scarlet Nexus is a futuristic action-RPG by BANDAI NAMCO.
It’s set in the far future where humanity has somehow found a way to unlock their innate physic powers and use it to defend themselves against alien beings out for their brains.
If that sounds like a euphemism for zombies in your ears, then you’re not alone.
With that said, Scarlet Nexus is boasting some pretty serious pedigree. Although it’s an entirely new IP, taking the lead are the same people behind the critically-acclaimed TALES OF series of games.
If nothing else, Scarlet Nexus could be the start of another interesting RPG franchise from the guys over at BANDAI NAMCO.
Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2
Released nearly two decades ago in 2004, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines was severely underrated during its time. It was as if people didn’t know what to make of it. As a result, it flew under the radar of most people. But, as the years passed, more and more gamers found themselves drawn to it.
Because of this, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines became a cult classic. However, it seems that it’s become popular enough to warrant an actual sequel.
Announced for the first time at GDC 2019, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines will put players in the shoes of a vampire living in the “World of Darkness”.
In this unique and twisted world, vampires and other supernature creatures live among humans. Peacefully? Definitely not.
Featuring the dark tone, atmosphere, and humor that made the original title a cult classic, as well as a touch of some modern refinement, look to Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 to let gamers stalk the streets of a fictional 21st-century Seattle as a vampire.
Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon
Technically, Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon is already available. Albeit, only in Japan for the PlayStation 4.
Fans eager to play the latest installment in the longrunning Yakuza franchise will have to wait for a while to get their hands on it. How long? Most likely when the PlayStation 5 makes its debut. This is because it’s set to be a launch title for the PS5’s competitor, the Xbox Series X.
Just to remind fans out there, Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon will change things up a bit.
Instead of the GTA-like beat-em-up gameplay of the previous Yakuza titles, Like a Dragon will use turn-based style combat with RPG elements thrown into the mix. Also, instead of just one person, you’ll be controlling a 4-person team, which will definitely ruffle up some feathers, or so to speak.
While it’ll definitely take some time to get used to this drastic change in gameplay, there’s no doubt that Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon will be a great game, especially after Famitsu awarded it with a 38/40 score.
There you have it, our list of the best PS5 games confirmed, both on launch and going forward. At this moment, gamers have nothing to worry about. The PS5 will have a lot of games available at launch. More importantly, it has its fair share of noteworthy exclusives as well.
This list will only continue to grow as the PlayStation 5 supplants the PlayStation 4 as the go-to gaming console for Sony’s avid fans. With that said, the November 12 release date for the PS5 is drawing near. We should expect fewer surprises if any at all until then. But, then again, who knows?
