The gaming world is abuzz with the announcement of PS5 by Sony. The internet is exploding with reactions to the new design. The frenzy won't die out soon, (there are over 4000 retweets on #ps5 every hour - courtesy ritetag.com). At the end of the day, though, the success or failure of the new console will be determined by the availability of games and titles, and whether they can provide a great gaming experience.
Twitter Can't Get Enough of Sony PS5
The PS4 had some great games, including exclusive titles like Spiderman, Horizon Zero Dawn, and God Of War, along with AAA games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto. Unsurprisingly, the PS4 sold over 110 million units worldwide, more than double the number of X Box One's 46.9 million units. As with PS4, Sony is betting on a combination of exclusive titles and AAA games to drive sales for PS5. So let us take a look at some of the top games you can expect on Sony PS5 shortly.
Horizon: Forbidden West
Horizon Forbidden West is an upcoming action role-playing game developed by Guerrilla Games and is the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn. The original game, set in a post-apocalyptic world, was praised for its gameplay, graphics, storyline, and diversity of characters.
Horizon Zero Dawn was an exclusive for PS4 and had great reviews. We may see the sequel as one of the flagship launch games, designed to utilize the hardware upgrades and show the true capability of the new PS5.
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an exclusive action-adventure title from Insomniac Games. It is a standalone spinoff to 2018's massively popular Marvel's Spider-Man, another exclusive. Expect the fireworks from this as one of the flagship launch titles.
From Shinji Mikami and the team at Tango Gameworks comes Ghostwire: Tokyo, a next-gen action-adventure game coming to consoles exclusively for PlayStation 5 in 2021.
Hitman III is an upcoming stealth game developed and published by IO Interactive. Though not an exclusive, it is a popular AAA title with a huge fan following.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Another exclusive from Insomniac Games is from the classic PlayStation series Ratchet & Clank.
Originally developed exclusively for PS3 in 2009 under the same name, Demon Souls is an action role playing game with dragons and heroes and demons in the kingdom of Boletaria.
Resident Evil 8
Another classic series with a huge fan following. Known traditionally for building games that push the existing hardware, it will be interesting to see what we get.
Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online
Of course there will be GTA. We wouldn't have it otherwise! The Rockstar Games series is one of those titles that are a must have for any platform.
A game based on infinite time loops, Returnal as a concept sounds great. We will have to wait though for a release date for the exclusive offering from Housemarque.
Another AAA series with a huge fan following. Though not exclusives, the titles from the NBA series are always well received.
From the makers of Final Fantasy XV comes Project Athia, a gorgeous looking game. Another exclusive game for Sony PS5.
A first person shooter game, with a protagonist stuck in a time loop, will debut on PS5 and Windows. The stylish looking game was initially announced by Bethesda, but is now being developed by Arkane (the folks behind 'Dishonored').
Gran Turismo 7
Rounding off this list is another exclusive - Gran Turismo 7. A popular series since 1997, Gran Turismo has sold 85 million units worldwide, making it the biggest-selling franchise under the PlayStation brand.
Wrapping it Up
In addition to the above list, picked by our editorial team, there are other promising titles being announced. While early glitches will be expected (we know how it goes), the roster for Sony PS5 looks promising. Now if we only knew how much it is gonna cost!
