But what games will you actually play on it? Sony recently announced juggernaut titles likeGod of War: RagnarokFinal Fantasy 16andHorizon Forbidden West. But those games are for 2021 and beyond (probably far, far beyond in Final Fantasy 16’s case).

Demon’s Souls


Bluepoint Games

Super hard action adventure games are now described as “like Dark Souls but.”Demon’s Soulswas the precursor to Dark Souls, released by From Software back in 2009, two years before the studio hit big with Dark Souls. Demon’s Souls isnow being remade exclusively for the PlayStation 5. 

Spider-Man: Miles Morales


Spider-Man: Miles Morales has been likened toUncharted: Lost Legacy. That game was an expansion for Uncharted 4: Clocking in at around 7 hours, it was somewhere between DLC and a full-blown spinoff title. And it totally ruled.Miles Morales promises to be that for 2018’s Spider-Man, and it’ll launch on both the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 4. 

Sackboy: A Big Adventure



Sackboy: A Big Adventure takes the hero from LittleBigPlanet and gives him a more traditional 3D platformer. Developed by Sumo Digital, the team behindLittleBigPlanet 3andForza Horizon 2, this game will be worth playing if it has half the charm of LittleBigPlanet. 



Gearbox Games

Godfallis a new IP, and it looks gnarly. Set in a fantasy world and published by Gearbox, which develops the Borderlands series, it’s an action RPG that puts you in control of one of the last members of the elite Knights Order. We don’t know a whole lot about the game or its story yet, but it looks like it has plenty of potential.

Astro’s Playroom



Astro’s Playroom is a cutesy platformer that comes loaded onto every PS5 console. It’s essentially a tech demo that’ll show you what the PlayStation 5 hardware — both the console itself, as well as the DualSense controller — is capable of. But “tech demo” may be underselling it, as its predecessor,Astro Bot Rescue Mission, is highly regarded. 

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


Assassin’s Creed Valhallatakes you to 873AD, when the Vikings begin expanding into England and Europe. It’s launching on Nov. 10 on every other console, with the PlayStation 5 version releasing alongside the console on Nov. 12.


NBA 2K21 is already playable on current-generation consoles, but makes the jump to the PS5 on Nov. 12. Slightly controversially,it’ll cost you an extra $10on PS5 and Xbox Series X. 

Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition

V, Nero and our old friend Dante. 


Devil May Cry V Special Edition takes theexcellent 2019 action gamefrom Capcom and adds a bunch of technical improvements. It supports ray tracing, and can be played up to 120 frames-per-second. Most importantly, you can also play as Virgil, lead-character Dante’s sinister brother. It’ll be available digitally for PS5 and Xbox Series X.


Epic Games

Fortniteis coming to both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. Epic Games says the game will be optimized for its launch on next-gen hardware and will next year migrate from Unreal Engine 4, the architecture it’s currently built on, to Unreal Engine 5 sometime next year. That’ll be where the big changes come. 

Observer: System Redux


Observerwas a 2017 PC game set in post-apocalyptic Krakow. You play as Daniel Lazarski, a mind-hacking “Observer” — essentially a policeman with mind-reading technology — and spend the game investigating a harrowing Krakow slum. It’s an intense horror experience, but one you’ll remember for a long time.Observer: System Redux is a remastered versionfor the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. 

Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War


OK, technically this isn’t a launch game. But it’s close enough:Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold Warhits the PlayStation 5 on Nov. 13, a day after the console’s release. That’s the same day it launches on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
