The PS5 has officially launched! We hope you all are diving into some of the exciting new titles like the remastered Demon’s Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Although these two were originally on our most anticipated PS5 exclusives list, we updated it to reflect games that weren’t out yet. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Why we’re excited: Returnal is a third-person, shooter from Housemarque. The trailer revealed a female protagonist crash-landing on an alien planet. It looks like there’s some intense combat, a lot of opportunity for cool exploration, especially on the new PS5 graphics, and an interesting narrative that will surely capture our attention.
We’re really excited to get our hands on this one and see what the hype is all about. It’s been a while since I’ve been really excited about a horror game. Return could be the one I’ve been waiting for.
Why we’re excited: Gran Turismo has always been a trailblazing, high-quality racing title that was at the forefront of technology and visual prowess. Now more than ever, we’re excited to see the power of the PS5 and what it will look like tearing up the streets in this exciting new Gran Turismo title. If you’ve never played a Gran Turismo game, you defintely should. Even non-racing fans can easily get sucked in to the addicting gameplay of Gran Turismo.
Why we’re excited: From the makers of Final Fantasy XV comes a bold new action game “designed exclusively for the PS5.” The trailer looks stunning with a sprinkle of gameplay to tease us. The parkour-style gameplay and unique combat make my mouth water. And boy, does that dragon look fierce.
Something about these PS5 teaser trailers just hit differently. Maybe it’s the amazing textures and buttery-smooth framerates? Although we don’t know too much about Project Athia yet, the trailer shows me enough to start the hype train chugging along.
Why we’re excited: The original Ratchet and Clank remake was a fun and easy-going game that everyone loved. We’re certainly welcoming in a new successor with updated graphics and gameplay. It’s even going to make use of the new DualSense controller for more dynamic feedback. If you haven’t played the original Ratchet and Clank on the PS4, now would be a great time. Did anyone else think the game was actually harder than you expected? I know I did.
Why we’re excited: Horizon: Zero Dawn is one of my absolute favorite PS4 games of all time. The combat, insane graphics, and cool story made for one hell of an adventure. Aloy’s back and sets her sights on the Americas. The “machines” are a part of what makes Horizon Forbidden West so awesome. That’s why we made a list of Horizon Forbidden West All New Machines. We will continue updating it as the list grows. There’s something truly special about fighting mech-dinosaurs with a bow and arrow.
There’s no way we could make a top 5 most anticipated PS5 exclusives list without mentioning Horizon Forbidden West. Guerilla Games really found a winning formula here in my opinion. I didn’t even know the graphics could get better, but Guerilla Games found a way.
The brand new PS5 will be a cornerstone of gaming and how far we’ve come. Some of the gameplay and trailers we’ve been seeing for these new titles are truly breathtaking. Sony and its partner developers are creating some sweet-looking new games that we’re dying to play. We can’t wait to get our hands on our top 5 most anticipated PS5 exclusives and put up some reviews! We’ll be updating this list as new titles come out and other ones get revealed.
