Which Playstation 5 games at the end of the year? Our buying guide

Are you planning to buy a Playstation 5 but you don’t yet know which games to crack? We’re taking stock of the PS5 launch offering.

Summary

We don’t judge a console by what it has in the case, but by the game that can be inserted into the CD slot or hard drive. At the end of the year, the launch of the Playstation 5 will be accompanied by many games that, although for the most part not necessarily intended solely for the machine, offer a catalog that will be interesting from the day it is released on the PS5. In this article, we invite you to return to the exclusive Playstation games, the third-party games, but also the next games that will be available on the Sony console. And there are a lot of them.

We had the opportunity to test games exclusively for the Sony console for launch in the French market. It is clear that these demonstrate the intentions of the console for this new generation: constant frame rate, impressive graphics quality, all with almost nonexistent load times. All in all, the Playstation 5 now offers an optimal gaming experience when it is, of course, too early to make an overall assessment of the console that has to stand the test of time.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (without PS5 and PS4)

Miles Morales, the spin-off of the excellent Marvels Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, which was released on Playstation 4 in 2018, is ideal here on both PS4 and Playstation 5. On the new generation console, the game offers 4K performance at 60 frames per frame.Second, this provides an exhilarating experience to swing among New York’s skyscrapers and rescue the widow and orphan while trying to thwart an industrial conspiracy. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is very similar to its predecessor in its construction and proposal, and will appeal to anyone who already enjoyed the original episode, provided they weren’t bored with its formula, which is repeated here almost equally, despite a few Gameplay additions related to Miles’ personal skills. Always mastered in this way, the suggestion from Insomniac Games is sublimated here by the capabilities of the Playstation 5.

Astros playroom (without PS5)

Astro, the little robot from the Asobi team, returns to Playstation 5 after having fun in the PS4 Playroom and has thrilled us on Playstation VR. In Astros Playroom, which all PS5 buyers can find installed for free on their computer, we are invited to explore a platform game that is divided into 16 levels and extends over four imaginary worlds in the belly of the Playstation 5. We will explore the meadow there. RAM, the GPU jungle, or even the SSD circuitry, a smile on my face for several reasons. First of all, because Astro is delightfully animated and pleasant to use. Then because the new controller, now called DualSense, finds a perfect standard of its capacities in Astros Playroom, which is often impressive in terms of its adaptive triggers and its vibrations that change depending on the situation. After all, because the game is supposed to bring us through numerous references to relive more than 25 years of history of the Playstation brand. Perfect for the family, but also for nostalgic gamers. Astro’s Playroom is much more than a technical demo. Dont miss it.

Demon’s Souls (excluding PS5)

One of the origins of the successful formula from studio From Software (to which we owe Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro) is Demon’s Souls, a game that celebrated its 11th anniversary last February. With him the genre “soul-like” was born, those games that challenge the player to overcome their sometimes frustrating difficulties in order to triumph. For the launch of its Playstation 5, Sony hired the masters of remake and remasterers BluePoint Games to offer Demon’s Souls an absolutely magnificent new edition, and all of this with conscientious respect for what the salt of this beloved game was. Demon’s Souls Remake is aimed at seasoned gamers who probably already know it by heart but will rediscover it here in a 4K environment that is very clear enough to make their jaws drop at times.

Sackboy: A Great Adventure (excluding PS5 and PS4)

Since 2008 and arriving on PS3 with Little Big Planet, Sackboy has come a long way! He arrives on Playstation 5 with a major adventure that this time around doesn’t focus on creating and sharing levels made by players. This is a more classic platformer where Sony’s little mascot goes through levels designed to be explored with others on the same console or online (online multiplayer will be available in a future update later this year). A little less fun when you are alone at the controller, Sackboy: A Big Adventure will find all its meaning in families who can share the discovery of the game mechanics with others.

As you’ve noticed, the Playstation 5 launch catalog is sturdy, and it will take you many hours of gameplay to get through. However, a console is nothing without a steady stream of new versions. The PS5 is not stopped: many games are already planned for the Sony console, including highly anticipated exclusive games like the next God of War, the next game Deathloop from Arkane Studios or even the Game of the World. Horizon Forbidden West has opened. Here is a non-exhaustive selection of the next few games to hit Playstation 5.
