So with that, here’s a sobering guide to help you discover just what games are coming to the PlayStation 5 so far...
Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Ubisoft’s latest entry in the series, where you can control a Viking and sail the seas. From the trailer that debuted at Inside Xbox event, it does seem to give off a Breath of the Wildmixed with Sea of Thieves vibe.
Astro returns in his own platforming adventure once again, where you can manipulate, jump, and bounce across the world.
Announced by EA in their financial conference call, there are no rumours as yet to what the game will entail, just a hope that it possibly goes back to an era that they previously visited, which is Vietnam. But another hope is that they will be re-releasing a ‘deluxe’ version of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 for both next-gen consoles in the meantime. We have hope.
A first-person adventure game where it seems you can catch bugs, make friends with animals, and explore a whole world of different levels and characters.
Not a game where you sing the chorus to the hits of the Spice Girls, but a game from Deep Silver that was announced at the Inside Xbox event. It gave off very Mass Effect vibes, with alien structures and RPG elements it seemed, so it will be interesting to see what becomes of the game next year.

Cygni: All Guns Blazing
Being developed by KeelWorks, this was announced just a few weeks ago, where it gives off those classic Ikaruga and Fantavision vibes. A top-down arcade shooter, this looks to be a lot of fun, with incredible visuals to boot.
We all know about Bungie’s Destiny 2. It's an MMORPGFPS, if that’s a genre, and since its release in 2018, several improvements and expansions have made it a fantastic purchase, especially during these lockdown times.
A game that looks like a cross between Rocket League and Destruction Derby, with Twisted Metal.
Mix these three games in and you get this.
A remake of the first entry, this looks to be an incredible return to the game.
A first-person shooter where you have 12 hours to hunt down and defeat 5 assassins, it looks to have a 1960's theme mixed with a movie, and not just wielding shotguns and handguns, but you can also grapple to ledges and use Jedi-moves to throw enemies off buildings.
Another one announced during Inside Xbox, the new entry by Codemasters looks to amplify competitive racing once again, but with flare and rally-driving aplenty. It even gave off some Split Second vibes, which is a game that does deserve a comeback, but we digress.
Dying Light 2
Being developed by Techland, its the sequel to the original entry from 2016, which brought high praise for its gameplay, but criticism for its story elements. This sequel looks to learn from this, with a very-focused narrative, alongside being able to allow the player to use certain ‘parkour’ skills, and a grappling hook.

A game being developed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, it gives off a cyberpunk theme alongside a Neo-Tokyo underworld environment, mixed with first-person gameplay and magic attacks.
Developed by Gearbox, it’s a PS5 exclusive that’s described as a ‘looter-slasher’, with different characters to play as and many worlds, or ‘realms’ to explore. There’s not much more details than what the trailer provided, but it looks to be a fun-game to use the DualSense with when it launches at the end of the year.
Gods and Monsters
Being developed by Ubisoft, it’s a storybook adventure that embarks on you controlling a forgotten hero, to save the Greek Gods from extinction. It looks to be a third-person adventure, so this could be a great game to tide you over until the next God of War game arrives.
Goodbye Volcano High
An anime-feature but playable, it looks to be engrossing as the trailer made out.
After THQ releasing a playable concept of what a remake of the 2001 original could play like, they subsequently confirmed that a remake was in production, due to the high-acclaim the demo received. It’s a single-player RPG where you must slay wild animals and monsters to earn skill points to build up your character, so you can easily slay the enemy-orcs throughout the game.
The fifth instalment has been announced for release in 2021, and existing GTA V owners get $1m a month on PS4 until it releases.
Gran Turismo 7
The successor to 2017’s Gran Turismo Sport, Polyphony Digital’s racing series has been on PlayStation ever since its first entry in 1997. Announced at the PS5 Event, it looks to have online as its focus.
Announced at the PS5 Event, it looks like to be a huge world, starting in Dubai, climbing up skyscrapers and hijacking cocktail parties with a silencer.
Horizon II: Forbidden West
A sequel to the critically-acclaimed original, it looks to be even bigger than its predecessor, with depth and story set to eclipse other games in its wake once again.
JETF: The Far Shore
Being developed by Superbrothers & Pine Scented, it looks to give the player the opportunity to traverse large worlds like No Mans Sky, while also have a space station above a planet.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
A fantasy game in the third-person genre, it looks to take advantage of the SSD features of the PS5 with its instant-change of terrain.
Little Devil Inside
A charming 2D adventure-platformer, with paper-mache vibes, where you get to explore forests and snowfields to avoid enemies.
Lord of the Rings: Gollum
Not much to gleam from the trailer, but as the title and teaser-trailer suggests, you will be controlling Gollum through the world of Mordor. Expect sneaky gameplay and an alternate point of view on the story.
Marvel's Avengers is one of the PS4 games confirmed to be making its way to the PS5 for free if you own it on the PS4. We've already learned quite a lot about this game from trailers and its Amazon listing, and it appears to follow The Avengers five years after they disbanded following the A-Day disaster, with Kamala Khan seeking to reform the team and take down AIM.
Madden NFL 21
FOOTBALL! The next in the long-line of Madden games, this was confirmed by EA to be coming to next-gen consoles only a fortnight ago, so if you’re mad about American Football, you won’t go far wrong with this.
Being developed by Warsaw-developer Glob Games Studio, it seems like its influence is from Honey I Shrunk the Kids, where you control the worlds smallest man, who tries to find a way to revert to his normal size. What more could you want from a game?
Of course it can't be a console launch without an NBA game coming. Developed by 2K once again, it only shows a player on a court, with significantly more polygons, and sweat, and really, that's all you need.
Nth^0 Infinity Reborn
An RPG that is being developed by UK developer KITATUS, it recently unveiled a sneak-peak at the game, which looks to have a horror vibe with zombies and animals looking to overtake the environment.
A remake of 1997 Abe's Exodus, it gives off a Pixar-animated feature from the trailer shown at the PS5 event, with Abe leaping between traps on a train, while avoiding Slig's with flamethrowers.
A first person shooter being developed by TeamKill Media, it looks to be influenced by Halo and DOOM Eternal, while offering some great amount of enemies to be on-screen at one time. To be playing this in 4K looks to be a tantalising thought.
This is a remaster of the game developed by Bloober Team back in 2017. Featuring 4K graphics with more story content, this cyberpunk thriller looks to show a whole new audience just how good this game was, and still is.
This is a new game by People Can Fly, set in a science-fiction universe where you can drop in and out as you like, where it gives a third-person viewpoint so you can point and shoot at all the enemies.
Set in a holographic-Earth,, you control an astronaut seemingly trying to rescue humans who have been stranded.
Developed by Square Enix, you take on a lady with magical powers, leaping across massive canyons and even more.
Rainbow Six Siege
Announced by Ubisoft to be available at launch for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, it will also allow for crossplay between both consoles, so you can play it at a nice 60 frames per second in 4K.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
Announced by Insomniac games for a 2021 release, they touted travelling between worlds with next to no loading as a great benefit for what they can do with the new console, especially going through different portals with no tax on loading.
You play as an astronaut who seems to have crash-landed onto a planet that changes every time she awakes it seems. Featuring a third-person viewpoint, it looks to be a survival-horror game, similar to Parasite Eve.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure
Seemingly a spin-off of Little Big Planet, this looks to be a platformer inspired by Knack and even Super Mario 3D World.
A hack-and-slash-RPG entry developed by BANDAI NAMCO was confirmed a fortnight back, where you play as ‘Yuito Sumeragi’, a recruit to the OSF (Other Suppression Force) where you battle against the ‘Others’.
No, this isn’t a game that’s based on the tv-show LOST, but it looks like a fun time where the 4K graphics will really make this game pop on your television.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Announced with Miles Morales with the main character, it's been announced with a Holiday 2020 launch, and looks to be a port of the 2018 release, but taking advantage of the PS5 features, such as SSD and even more high-res graphics.
After some confusion, it does seem as though the 'Miles Morales' section is an expansion of the game, exclusive to PS5.
You play as a cat through a futuristic-Tokyo city. What more can be said.
The Sims 5
Thanks to our sister site at RealSport 101, it looks as though the next entry in making your own Eastenders-soap looks to be announced at EA Play on June 11th, seemingly featuring online multiplayer and 4K graphics to properly create your own Frank Butcher and Phil Mitchell in the Sims world.
Ultimate Fishing Simulator 2
Being developed by MasterCode, you are placed into the wide-world of fishing, where you will need to use all your skills from the SEGA Bass Fishing years to try and hook a fish in delightful 4K.
Vampire: Bloodlines 2
A game that has been on many players’ wish lists for some time, it’s the sequel to a game released back in 2004, and ever since then, developer Troika Games has been wanting to develop a successor to it. This year it was made a reality, with the sequel being confirmed for PS5. A trailer was shown at the Inside Xbox event, having a Christmas theme and very creepy humans being strung up like puppets. So get ready for the Christmas-joy when it releases later this year.
VIIlage: Resident Evil 8
Set in a snowy-village, it looks as though you control a character who has been mixed up with the locals, while you run into Chris Redfield and seemingly the Umbrella Corporation.
Watch Dogs: Legion
The only game here that has been delayed, with no release date set in stone as yet, the third game in the Watch Dogs franchise has you be in an alternative-London, with it now a surveillance-state.
You can control multiple characters across this free-roaming world, and you can also recruit other characters to help with your missions, whether that's a hacker, someone who likes to throw a punch, or who likes to sneak around. There’s also cooperative play, but no confirmation as yet if crossplay will play a part here.
There you have it, a confirmed list for now; some for launch, some for 2021. A few are inevitably due to be announced very soon, especially with rumours that more details on the console will be announced very soon.
But at least for the present day, you can see just what you may be playing for the PlayStation 5.
