The Full List of PS5 Confirmed Games
As we already know, the next-gen PlayStation console will appear in stores during this winter holiday season. Although this moment is within our grasp, Sony remains quiet about the line up of video games that will be available on the launch of PS5. For that reason, the current list of the upcoming titles is quite big but doesn’t include any exclusives that actually make this console so popular. Nevertheless, the games below are developed by such big names as EA, Ubisoft, Techland, THQ Nordic, 2K, Gearbox, and others. Moreover, some of them are not just upcoming multiplatform installments, but full-value next-gens that won’t be available for PS4 and Xbox One.
Counterplay Games under the command of the powerful publisher, Gearbox, will jump on the platform with a 3rd-person fantasy action game. The uniqueness of the franchise is in the combination of RPG with looter-slasher mechanics. Godfall was the very first title announced for the console, and it remains the only confirmed next-gen game so far. Judging by the reveal trailer, the game will be available exactly on the launch of PlayStation 5.
While the fantasy Godfall will probably be exclusive, Outriders by People Can Fly and Square Enix is likely to be a multiplatform game. It’s also a 3rd-person looter, but it involves shooting instead of slashing and a combination of sci-fi and fantasy environments. People Can Fly is the studio behind such hits as Gears of War: Judgement and Bulletstorm. There are no gameplay footages so far, but the trailer hints that it won’t differ from polished CGIs too much.
3. Gods and Monsters
Ubisoft decided to enter the new generation with an adventure game that looks a lot like the last chapter of The Legend of Zelda. The development team of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is responsible for the entire game, so we anticipate a highly detailed and logical open-world universe with a lot of vertical mechanics and creative ways to interact with the environment. It’s the only game that you can already play, and we know that it will be available for PS5 and the new Xbox as well. Perhaps, this fate is appointed to many early and mid-2020 games.
4. Gothic: The Remake
The line of remakes of legendary games continues to grow, and Gothic: The Remake is going to be the must-play. THQ Nordic created this game almost 20 years ago, and it used to be a resounding success. This time, the game is under the production of a secret Spain-based studio, and it’s announced to be available only for the next generation of consoles. However, it won’t be a breakthrough if we talk about visuals. It will look more like a refreshed original game with 4K textures, better animation, and improved camera work.
5. Rainbow Six: Quarantine
What would the next generation be without a new chapter of Rainbow Six by Ubisoft? The publisher has already announced a new chapter of this cross-platform multiplayer shooter for late 2020-early 2021. It’s going to be a classic Rainbow Six experience with 3-player co-op objectives. The team behind the game has already proved its competence on Rainbow Six Siege. The weird thing is that this 2015 shooter is under development again, and it’s rumored to be a cross-gen multiplayer sport. So what do we need Quarantine for? To fight monsters, of course!
6. The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum
This announcement was a big surprise for all the fans of the franchise as it’s the first game in the universe in over 6 years. The last game, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, is still an impressive 3rd person action, so the expectations for the upcoming next-gen game are very high. The game is developed by the German adventure genre leader, Daedalic Entertainment, so it will be a big one for sure. The story will tell us about Gollum, who gets the Ring and transforms under its extremely strong pressure.
7. Watchdogs: Legion
Ubisoft wants to take a big slice of the next-gen cake and announces a relaunch of its popular Watchdogs franchise. Watchdogs: Legion will teleport you to London, and tell a completely new story that has nothing in common with the 2 original games. You will be able to play for nearly any NPC whom you meet in the open-world city. The trailer reveals several classes of characters who have unique skills and traits, and one of them is a retired assassin granny!
8. Dying Light 2
The Polish developer Techland impressed the gaming society with the first chapter of this zombie-horror FPS action, and the 2nd chapter is going to be even better. The developer made the universe larger and even more dangerous. At the same time, the parkour system was improved dramatically, letting you traverse the map much more convenient. The release date is still unknown, but the game will be a cross-gen title for sure.
Something New by Bluepoint
Bluepoint Studios has announced that the works on a remake for PS5 have been already started. The previous remake by the studio was Shadow of the Colossus, but the title of the upcoming game is still unknown. The most probable version, for now, is a remake of Deamon’s Souls.
Announced but Unconfirmed PS5 Titles
This list includes twice as many titles as our article. The most highly anticipated of them are Cyberpunk 2077 (of course!), BioShock 4, Diablo 4, the new Saints Row, Avatar, The Sims 5, Battlefield 6, Overwatch 2, a new Call of Duty, Skull & Bones, The Wolf Among Us 2, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and some more games. Hopefully, GTA VI is also somewhere on the way!
Calm Before The Storm?
Such a secretive position of Sony can mean 2 things. The first is that the company doesn’t have a lot of exclusive titles, but it’s not likely to be true. The second is that there’s an immense surprise waiting for us at the presentation of the new console. We are pretty sure that the company will hit the market with the second scenario. We’re also sure that the market battle between the new Xbox and PlayStation consoles will be historic! What are your thoughts about it?
