So you succeeded. Congratulations! You’ll get a PS5 on November 12, when Sony launches its next generation console. But what games will you actually play? Sony recently announced juggernaut titles like God of War: Ragnarok, and Horizon Forbidden West. But those games are for 2021 and beyond (probably far, far beyond in the case of Final Fantasy 16).
The following are the games you can play on November 12th.
Note: Not included in this list is Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, which will be released during the PS5 “launch window”.
Super hard action and adventure games are now described as “like Dark Souls but”. Demon’s Souls was the precursor to Dark Souls, released by From Software in 2009, two years before the studio achieved success with Dark Souls. Demon’s Souls is now being remade exclusively for PlayStation 5.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Spider-Man: Miles Morales has been compared to Uncharted: Lost Legacy. That game was an expansion for Uncharted 4: Clocking in about 7 hours, it was somewhere between DLC and a full-blown spinoff title. And it is totally governed.and will launch on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
Sackboy: a great adventure
Sackboy: A Big Adventure takes the hero from LittleBigPlanet and offers him a more traditional 3D platformer. Developed by Sumo Digital, the team behind LittleBigPlanet 3 and Forza Horizon 2, this game will be worth playing if it has half the charm of LittleBigPlanet.
Godfall is a new IP and it looks gnarled. Set in a fantasy world and published by Gearbox, which develops the Borderlands series, is an action RPG that puts you in control of one of the last members of the elite Knights Order. We don’t know much about the game or its history yet, but it looks like it has great potential.
Astro’s Playroom is a cute platformer that loads on every PS5 console. It’s essentially a technical demo that will show you what the PlayStation 5 hardware is capable of, both the console itself and the DualSense controller. But “tech demo” might be underestimated, as its predecessor, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, is highly regarded.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, when the Vikings begin to expand in England and Europe. It will launch on November 10 on all other consoles, with the PlayStation 5 version coming out alongside the console on November 12.
Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition
Devil May Cry V Special Edition takes the excellent 2019 action game from Capcom and adds a number of technical improvements. It supports ray tracing and can be played up to 120 frames per second. Most importantly, you can also play Virgil, Dante’s sinister brother. It will be available digitally for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Fortnite will arrive on both PS5 and Xbox Series X. Epic Games says the game will be optimized for its launch on next-generation hardware and will migrate from Unreal Engine 4, the architecture it is currently built on, to Unreal Engine next year. 5 next year. That’s where the big changes will come.
Observer: System Redux
Observer was a 2017 PC game set in post-apocalyptic Krakow. You play as Daniel Lazarski, a mind-hacking “observer” – essentially a cop with mind-reading technology – and spend the game investigating a harrowing Krakow slum. It’s an intense horror experience, but one you will remember for a long time. Observer: System Redux is a remastered version for 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 War arrives on PlayStation 5 on November 13, one day after the console’s release. This is the same day it launches on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
