Horizon: Forbidden West
Guerilla Games’ hot sequel to the phenomenal Horizon: Zero Dawn is perhaps the game that so far best shows what Playstation 5 really stands for. The layout seems to be an update of what was found in the Playstation 4 game, but why change to a winning concept? We are already longing to slaughter new and more dangerous robot beasts in the America of the apocalypse.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Spider-Man for Playstation 4 not only captured the feeling of swinging through an open world perfectly, but also offered an interesting story about everyone’s favorite spider. Ahead of the Playstation 5 launch, Insomniac Games has honed the game even more and is also taking the opportunity to give us new perspectives in the form of the new Spider-Man Miles Morales.
Are you ready to die again? The ancestor of the “Souls” games is back in a new, modern edition that really takes advantage of the power of Playstation 5. Behind this remake is the conversion masters Bluepoint Games, which previously impressed us with new versions of the Metal Gear Solid and God of War games . Just do not forget to take out a separate insurance for your Dual Sense control. There is a risk that you will accidentally throw it against the wall (out of sheer frustration), in true Souls spirit.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
The radar pair Ratchet and Clank made their debut already on Playstation 2, but have been absent for a long time now (the game based on the movie does not count). Fortunately, the holidays are over with the new Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. And even though it looks absolutely adorable graphically, we long even more to experience dimensional jumps completely without charging times.
Tango Gameworks, known for The Evil Within games, is back with a whole new horror experience. This time we get to explore a haunted Tokyo and eliminate ghosts and other horrors with the help of superpowers. Ghostwire is said to be significantly more action-packed than Tango’s latest horror film, The Evil Within 2. However, the studio has been involved in classics such as Vanquish and Resident Evil 4, which bodes well for Ghostwire: Tokyo.
Resident Evil VIII: Village
After two eminent remakes of older Resident Evil games, Capcom is now ready to tackle the sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. It also means that the first-person perspective is back, and with it the former protagonist Ethan. We do not yet know much about the story, other than that we explore a snow-covered village full of zombies, werewolves and a couple of previously familiar faces. Judging by the trailer, we can look forward to an adrenaline-filled experience in eerily beautiful and technically impressive environments.
A man in a spacesuit explores what appears to be a deserted New York City, when he sees a seemingly untouched girl. Suddenly, the whole of life is reversed when a satellite crashes “through” the environments. Is this a simulation or a distorted version of the post-apocalypse? The game seems to have been influenced by Hideo Kojima’s masterpiece Death Stranding as well as movies like Interstellar, a rather unique combination if we may say so ourselves.
Gran Turismo 7
Sony’s long-distance driver Gran Turismo will soon appear in nicer paint than ever. In addition to being technically superior to its predecessors, we can also look forward to PS5-exclusive features such as beam tracking and the special haptic feedback that only the Dual Sense control can offer. In terms of content, it also seems to be a mix of previous games and the PS4 edition GT Sport.
A promising action adventure signed by Counterplay Games and Gearbox, where the inspiration seems to come from the latter’s own Borderlands series. In this multiplayer-focused game, we take part in mammoth melee battles against god-like, armored enemies in mysterious environments. The developers themselves call Godfall a “looter slasher”, where we are offered a large number of weapons and armor as rewards along the adventure. They also assure that the game lacks microtransactions completely.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure
Ratchet and Clank are not the only Playstation mascots ready for new PS5 adventures. Little Big Planet-Sackboy is also back in an adventure that does not resemble his previous exploits. Sackboy: A Big Adventure may not be the coolest thing we’ve seen on Playstation 5. But we’re genuinely curious about the shift to a three-dimensional gameplay. Maybe this could be Sony’s answer to Super Mario 3D World?
