At this time it's good to have something to look forward to, and what better than the games we'll be playing on PS5 at the end of the year? This issue we detail the confirmed games for Sony's next-gen console.
Inside issue 174, on sale now, we reveal new details, impressions, and hands-on previews of the games we know are heading to PS5, and a couple we hope will make it.
One of which is Void Interactive's Ready Or Not, a hit on PC this Rainbow Six Siege-like team-shooter could be heading to PS5.
“Our game design will lend itself to run excellently on the PS5 [and] we are currently achieving 80-plus fps on mid-range devices,” says the studio's Julio Rodriguez in issue 174 of Official PlayStation Magazine, on sale now.
We speak with Dying Light 2's lead producer Eugen Harton about delays to the game, and what PS5 means for the sequel. “There are the obvious ones like loading times,” says Harton as he considers the ways in which PS5’s SSD will improve the performance of the game, “but we still have time to explore the ways we want to use the power provided by the new generation.”
Going further in issue 174 of Official PlayStation Magazine Harton confirms Dying Light on both PS4 and PS5 will be supported post-release: “We want to support the world of Dying Light 2 for as long as possible,” he says.
