Upcoming PS5 games to watch out for

2024

Developer: Rocksteady
Publisher: Warner Bros
Release date: February 2, 2024

Rocksteady is continuing its work on the Batman: Arkham series but taking a detour into Suicide Squad territory. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a brand new sotry, with 1-4 player co-op, an evil Superman, and four playable characters. These take the form of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark, all of which come with their own unique weapons, and the option to switch between them at any time. 

Foamstars

Release date: February 6, 2024

Imagine Splatoon, but instead of ink-slinging squids, you're using bubble blasters. That seems to be the aim of the game in Square Enix's upcoming Foamstars. From the trailer shown during the PlayStation Showcase 2023, it looks like we'll be choosing from a colorful cast of anime-style characters to lay waste to your opponent in a shooter game with a discernibly sweet edge. No official release date has been announced yet, but this is one to keep an eye on for fans of family-friendly fun that may well include co-op or multiplayer functionality by the looks of it.

Helldivers 2

Developer: Arrowhead
Publisher: SIE
Release date: February 8, 2024

"Become part of something larger than yourself. Be a hero. Be a helldiver." A sequel to  the 2015's twin stick shooter, Helldivers 2 is an upcoming futuristic action set to launch in 2023 for PC and PS5.  The trailer we saw during PlayStation Showcase 2023 presents it through a tongue-in-cheek infomercial, calling on the viewer to join the ranks of the Helldivers and protect the Super Earth from ongoing threats. The first game took place 250 years after World War 3, and from the looks of it. Helldivers 2 shows the battle to protect humanity's last frontier still soldiering on. 

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden

Developer: Don't Nod Entertainment
Publisher: Focus Entertainment
Release date: February 13, 2024

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is the new title from Don't Nod Entertainment (of Life is Strange fame), and it's quite different tonally from what we've had from the team before. You'll be hunting ghosts as a pair of lovers in New Eden in 1965 known as Antea and Red. However, when Antea becomes one of the spirits after being fatally wounded by it, they need to find a way to set her free.

Ultros

Developer: El Huervo
Publisher: El Huervo/Kepler Ghost
Release date: February 16, 2024

One upcoming PS5 game set to launch early in 2024 is Ultros. The psychedelic side-scrolling Metroidvania is a kaleidoscope of chaos and color, and it begins as you awaken in The Sarcophagus. This isn't ancient Egypt we're talking about though: it's a uterus of sorts, and it's primed to give birth to a primordial, demonic entity. Oh, and there's also the small matter of the black hole that's keeping you stuck in a time loop, but you can tackle that later. The stunning game is being developed by Swedish game artist and music producer Niklas Åkerblad under the name El Huervo, so we're already gearing up for an adventure that sounds and looks truly out of this world.

Skull and Bones

Developer: Ubisoft Singapore
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: February 16, 2024

What does Black Flag look like without Assassin's Creed? It's a great question, and something Ubisoft Singapore will be answering this November when Skull and Bones finally releases into open waters. This tactical action game has been in development for almost a decade, originally surfacing because of how well the sailing elements of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag were received. What exists now is an open world adventure where you'll captain a fully customizable pirate ship, battling it out with other players across the Indian Ocean. 

Pacific Drive

Developer: Ironwood Studios
Publisher: Kepler Interactive
Release date: February 22, 2024

If you find nothing scarier than the long, open road, Pacific Drive is one of the upcoming PS5 games you need to add to your roster. The first-person survival adventure sees players stranded in a paranormally-disturbed Pacific Northwest with nothing but their car for company. It's a one-stop shop for all your crafting needs, and it comes on four wheels in case you need to make a speedy getaway. Game director Steve Rosen's past credits include other survival titles like Don't Starve , so things are already looking promising for Ironwood's maiden voyage in Pacific Drive.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Upcoming PS5 games: Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Developer: In-house
Publisher: Square Enix
Release date: February 29, 2024

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is set to continue the adventures of Cloud and the Avalanche gang, although we are getting pretty far from the FF7 timeline that I remember. Square Enix is charting its own path at this point, spinning off from the original story while still embracing some of its best elements – the Golden Saucer is back, and so is Vincent. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will launch early in 2024, and I can't wait to see what wild paths it takes. 

Alone in the Dark

Release date: March 20, 2024

The franchise that helped popularize survival horror is finally back. THQ Nordic has resurrected Alone in the Dark, with this reboot attempting to get back to the series' fundamentals. You'll take control of two characters, Emily Hartwood (played by Jamie Comer) and Edward Carnby (David Harbour) as the pair investigate the strange goings-on at Derceto Manor. 

Rise of the Ronin

Developer: Team Ninja
Publisher: Koei Tecmo
Release date: March 22, 2024

Rise of the Ronin is an all-new PS5 exclusive being developed by Team Ninja. Rise of the Ronin is a combat focused open-world action RPG which takes place in late 19th century Japan – during a period of great change known as "Bakumatsu". The game looks fantastic already, and that's even with it not launching until 2024. Team Ninja is one of the masters of creating samurai and ninja action games, so this will be one that's worth watching. 

Tales of Kenzera: Zau

Developer: Surgent Studios
Publisher: EA
Release date: April 23, 2024

Tales of Kenzera: Zau is a new metroidvania-style adventure that sees you wield the dance of a shaman and cosmic powers as you venture through mythological lands. Inspired by studio founder Abubakar Salim's own personal journey with grief after the loss of his father, the adventure follows the journey of a boy who sets out to reclaim his father's spirit. 

Sand Land

Developer: Bandai Namco Europe
Publisher: Bandai Namco
Release date: April 26, 2024

One of Akira Toriyama's most underrated manga series is being brought to life as a brand new RPG as Sandland comes to PS5. In case you don't know the name, Toriyama is the creator of Dragon Ball, and the artist behind the iconic Dragon Quest series. In Sandland you'll explore a sprawling desert, brought to life in Unreal Engine 5, where demons and humans are forced to co-exist – creating no end of delightfully, colorful chaos.  

Stellar Blade

Developer: Shift Up

Release date: April 26, 2024 

Formerly known as Project Eve, Stellar Blade is now a PS5-exclusive action RPG that follows protagonist Eve in her fight to save Earth. Accompanied by companions capable of upgrading her gear, she'll work to find the planet of the Nativa monsters that have driven humanity to an off-world colony. It looks very Nier Automata.

Black Myth: Wukong

Developer: Game Science
Publisher: Game Science
Release date: August 20, 2024 

Black Myth Wukong is an action RPG that's based on Chinese mythology and follows the story of Journey to the West, which is a novel from classical Chinese literature. Playing as the Destined One, you set out to face various challenges in order to uncover the truth behind a past legend. With different spells and abilities to play around with, as well as various staff techniques, you can expect a lot of action and boss fights. 

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2

Developer: Saber Interactive
Publisher: Focus Entertainment
Release date: September 9, 2024

It's time to become a Space Marine in this return of the cult-classic series, in development at Saber Interactive (best known for World War Z). It's a third-person adventure that'll see you wield deadly abilities and weaponry to take down the Tyranid hordes as you work to protect humanity. It looks intense, as you'd hope.

TBC 2024

Cities Skylines 2

Developer: Colossal Order

Paradox
Release date:
TBC 2024

Cities Skylines 2 is finally coming, and is the long-awaited sequel to one of the most popular city builders of all time. It's bringing with it enhanced features like better road tools, public and cargo transportation, traffic AI, massive 150 tile maps per unique city, and a cinematic camera. We'll also be able to get much closer to the action than ever before, with the opportunity to follow individual citizens from birth to death in your city. 

Everywhere

Upcoming PS5 games: Everywhere

Developer: In-house
Publisher: Build a Rocket Boy
Release date: TBC 2024

Everywhere is the new upcoming "multi-world" game first revealed at Gamescom Opening Night Live. Developed by Build a Rocket Boy with former Rockstar president Leslie Benzie on the project, we got a very early look at the project, which, according to the official site, "seamlessly blends gameplay, adventure, creativity and discovery in an all-new multi-world gaming experience", that's claims to redefine "how players connect with one another and with the digital world around them." Since the initial reveal was shrouded in mystery, no platforms were announced, but we assume it's set to come to PS5. 

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn 

Upcoming PS5 games: Flintlock: The Siege of the Dawn

Developer: A44
Publisher: Kepler
Release date: TBC 2024

An open-world action role-player, Flintlock is being made by Ashen developer A44. Blending up close and personal melee axe play and firearms at range, this third person adventure looked stunning during its gameplay showcase at E3 2022, and we can't wait to see more between now and its tentative "early 2023" release date. Starring protagonist Nor and her companion, Enki, the pair are said to "embark on an epic journey of vengeance, gunpowder, and magic in humanity’s last stand." Sound good? We think so too. 

John Carpenter's Toxic Commando

John Carpenter's Toxic Commando looks like a squad-based magical zombie-slaying adventure in new screenshot.

Developer: In-house
Publisher: Saber Interactive
Release date: TBC 2024

If gunning down zombies in a game co-created by a horror icon sounds like your idea of a party, boy does John Carpenter's Toxic Commando have a surprise for you. We first caught wind of it at Summer Game Fest 2023, and the announcement trailer is suitably chaotic. From the spray of bullets raining down on legions of the undead to decidedly out-of-tune rendition of You Give Love a Bad Name underscoring it all, this is one horde FPS game worth keeping an eye on as we await a more concrete release date.

Little Devil Inside

Upcoming PS5 games: Little Devil Inside

Developer: Neostream Interactive
Release date: TBC 2024

Little Devil Inside first began life on Kickstarter back in 2015. Fast forward five years later and we see a debut trailer during the PS5 reveal stream with the news that it will be a timed exclusive. As an RPG with survival elements, Little Devil inside is set in the "Victorian-like" era in a semi-open world. The trailer showed off a whole host of monsters and also gave us brief glimpses of some of the combat elements and features. It was easily one of the biggest surprises of the recent showcase. 

Light No Fire

Developer: Hello Games
Publisher: Hello Games
Release date: TBC 2024

No Man's Sky developer Hello Games is bringing us a new experience with Light no Fire - a survival sandbox adventure you can play with others. Set on an open-world fantasy planet that's described as being the same size as the Earth, you'll be given the freedom to explore its diverse biomes as you try to unravel its lore and mysteries. With building and survival aspects, we also saw in the reveal trailer that you can fly through the vistas on the back of a dragon, climb mountains, and even set sail across the oceans. 

Lost Records: Bloom and Rage

Release date: TBC 2024 

Lost Records: Bloom and Rage is a new story-driven adventure from Life is Strange developer, Don't Nod. Set in the new "Lost Records universe", Bloom and Rage follows high school friends Swann, Nora, Autumn in a journey through time. After a summer of self-discovery together in 1995, they're said to go for 27 years without any contact with one another until fate reunites them once again. Now they have to confront why it was they promised to never speak again. 

No Rest for the Wicked

No Rest for the Wicked from Ori and the Blind Forest and Will of the Wisps developer Moon Studios is a new action RPG set in the year 841. You take on the role of a Cerim, who's a member of a group of mystical holy warriors with unique powers that have sword to fight back and defeat the Pestilence - a plague that has returned after 1000 years and is now spreading across the lands. The diablo-esque experience features different character builds to play around with, along with an online co-op mode that will allow you to play with up to three friends. 

Neva

Developer: Nomada Studio
Publisher: TBC
Release date: TBC 2024

Little is known about Neva at the moment, save for what we saw at the PlayStation Showcase 2023, but its stunning 2D landscapes speak to a fantastical world where man and wolf live in harmony. From the creators of Gris, it looks like a narrative driven adventure that focuses on atmosphere, storytelling, and creating a unique world for the player to immerse themselves in. Gris was unique for its wordless gameplay, so who knows what Nomada Studios has in store for us when Neva launches in 2024?

Star Wars Outlaws

Developer: Massive Entertainment

Release date: TBC 2024

Star Wars Outlaws is the new open-world Star Wars project from Ubisoft, Massive Entertainment and Lucasfilm Games, and it'll see us taking up the role of Kay Vess. Described as a clever scoundrel, Kay can be found lurking in the underworld about to attempt one of the Outer Rim's biggest heists yet. You'll be accompanied by her companion Nix and a trench-coat-wearing BX-commando droid for the journey too.

Still Wakes the Deep

Release date: TBC 2024

Still Wakes the Deep is a first-person horror game from The Chinese Room, the makers of games like Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. You're working at a offshore oil rig, trying to survive a vicious storm and stay out of the freezing waters of the North Sea. You've got no exits, no comms, and not a lot of hope left.

Throne and Liberty

Developer: NCSoft
Publisher: NCSoft
Release date: TBC 2024

Amazon Games and NCSoft are joining forces to bring us Throne and Liberty. It was originally intended as a continuation of the Lineage series, also from NCSoft, but Throne and Liberty is a brand new experience. The Korean MMORPG will feature both PvE and PvP modes as you explore a unique fantasy world, using magic to battle all manner of foes on your quest to reclaim the throne. Announced during Summer Game Fest 2023, we're still unsure when we get our hands on this game, though a 2023 release gate has been teased.

Towers of Aghasba

Release date: TBC 2024

If paragliding around Hyrule is your favorite part of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Towers of Aghasba is one to watch out for. We first caught wind of the fantasy adventure title almost five years ago, so it's a relief to hear that it's finally slated to launch in 2024. The game sees the player traversing a strange alien planet from the skies, battling bizarre monsters and creatures while coasting above what looks to be an expansive open world. 

The Casting of Frank Stone

Release date: TBC 2024

The Casting of Frank Stone is a new narrative horror game from Until Dawn and The Quarry developer, Supermassive Games. Made in partnership with Behaviour Interactive, the story takes place in the universe of Dead by Daylight in the town of Cedar Hills, which is said to have been forever altered thanks to a killer by the name of Frank Stone. With a bloody history, you'll find yourself exploring the mystery of Cedar Hills with a new cast of characters, and every decision you make will shape your journey. 

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Upcoming PS5 games: Vampire

Developer: The Chinese Room
Publisher: Paradox Interactive
Release date: TBC 2024

Looking for a game with a bit of extra bite? Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 puts you in the seedy underbelly of Seattle, which should suit you just fine as a vampire ready to test out your new fangs. Turned as an act of vampire terrorism during the 'Mass Embrace', you'll soon get caught up in vampire faction politics, where you're still just trying to deal with your new way of life. This is an RPG at its core too, filled with player choices, a strong narrative, and branching dialogue options too. 

2025

Monster Hunter Wilds

Release date: TBC 2025

Monster Hunter Wilds is said to be the next-generation of the Monster Hunter series that will take full advantage of the power of the PS5. With a reveal at The Game Awards 2023, we got a glimpse of the new experience, which features a "new level of detailed creatures and ecosystems" within what looks set to be one expansive open-world setting. There's still much we don't yet know about the adventure, but it's certainly giving similar vibes to Monster Hunter World. 

TBC

Fairgames

Developer: Haven Studios
Publisher: SIE
Release date: TBC

Haven Studios was acquired by Sony Interactive Entertainment in 2022, becoming part of the PlayStation Studios family to help lead the PS5's expanding live service initiative. The studio's debut is Fairgames, an all-new co-op experience where you'll team up with friends to go up against the corporate overloads squeezing the life out of the world. This PS5 exclusive is still in early development, but we'll be keeping a close eye on this one in the months ahead. 

Assassin's Creed Red

Developer: Ubisoft Quebec 
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: TBC 

If there's any one thing the Assassin's Creed fan base can agree on, it's that a game set in feudal Japan is long overdue. That's why Assassin's Creed Codename Red has gotten the world so excited, with this new flagship entry to the series from Assassin's Creed Odyssey developer Ubisoft Quebec set to let us live out a shinobi fantasy. Assassin's Creed Red is thought to be in early development, so there's a good chance we won't see this one until 2024 at the earliest. 

Assassin's Creed Hexe

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal 
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: TBC 

Ubisoft Montreal – the birthplace of Assassin's Creed – is working on a very different type of entry to the series. Following the release of Assassin's Creed Valhalla in 2020, the studio has been quietly working on Assassin's Creed Codename Hexe under the leadership of Watch Dogs Legion's creative director Clint Hocking. While it's thought to be in early development, an early tease suggests a far darker setting that could revolve around Europe's bloody 16th century witch trials. Sadly, there's a good chance we'll be waiting until 2024 and beyond for this one. 

Assassin's Creed Infinity

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft Quebec 
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: TBC 

Assassin's Creed Infinity remains one of the most mysterious projects in development at Ubisoft. This cross-studio collaboration sees Ubisoft Montreal (Assassin's Creed Valhalla) and Ubisoft Quebec (Assassin's Creed Odyssey) working more closely to shape and define the future of this long-running series. While details are light on the ground, it's expected that Assassin's Creed Infinity will act as an interactive hub, connecting players and future AC experiences – like Codename Red and Codename Hexe – into one seamless, evolving platform. Whatever it is, we can't wait to see more.

Death Stranding 2

Developer: Kojima Productions
Publisher: Sony Entertainment
Release date: TBC

Kojima Productions is back with Death Stranding 2, and although Kojima is claiming that it's just a working title for now, it is a sequel to the 2019 title. The teaser trailer shown at the Game Awards 2022 featured Fragile protecting what we assume to be a toddler version of BB, a greying Sam Porter Bridges, and a ship that looked very much like the Metal Gear Rex. Concrete details right now are scarce, but we do know that the cast currently includes Norman Reedus, Léa Seydoux, Elle Fanning, Shioli Kutsuna, and Troy Baker.

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf

Upcoming PS5 games: Dragon Age 4

Developer: BioWare
Publisher: EA
Release date: TBC

Although technically no platforms have been announced for Dragon Age 4 - or Dragon Age: Dreadwolf as it's officially called - at this point it would seem odd not to think of it as an upcoming PS5 game. We may not have a release date yet, but at least we know that Solas and co are making a return at some point in the future. What we have seen is some glorious concept art, and the confirmation that it will continue on from where Dragon Age: Inquisition left off. 

Dragon's Dogma 2

Developer: In-House
Publisher: Capcom
Release date:  TBC

It's been a long time coming, but we finally got a taste of Dragon's Dogma 2 at the PlayStation Showcase 2023. It's been more than a decade since Capcom graced us with the first Dragon’s Dogma, a dark fantasy RPG adventure set in the world of Gransys. The fantastical realm seems to have only evolved since then, but we’re still playing as the fabled Arisen warrior as seen in both the original and 2013’s Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen expansion. If you’re waiting with bated breath for news on The Witcher 4, Dragon’s Dogma 2 seems worth keeping an eye on. And yes, the dragon’s look incredible.

Dune Awakening

Release date: TBC 

Funcom is bringing us a new survival open-world MMO set in a vast landscapes of the classic sci-fi setting Arrakis. First shown off during Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022, Dune: Awakening is said to blend the survival game genre with a multiplayer experience as you try to live in the harsh landcapes of the planet. You'll be building shelters to weather sandstorms, look after you stillsuit and try to brave the deep desertland. It'll be interesting to see how the famous setting serves as a home for an MMO experience. 

Elder Scrolls 6

Upcoming PS5 games: ESO 6

Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Publisher:

Release date: TBC

Ah, the Elder Scrolls 6. The 37-second trailer that blew the world's mind at E3 2018. The game that we know nothing about beyond this same trailer, that is in development somewhere within Bethesda Game Studios along with Starfield. Because it is so far away from release, you can bet your bottom coin that it's going to appear - at some point - on the PS5 (although hopefully not whatever the PS6 could be). 

Judas

Release date: TBC

BioShock creator Ken Levine has finally revealed his new project - Judas. With seriously strong BioShock vibes, Judas is a single-player narrative title where you must try to escape a disintegrating starship. You must survive by either making or breaking alliances with the other people on the ship, your so-called worst enemies. You're playing as the titular Judas, who is described as "mysterious and troubled", and seemingly has powers in her left hand that she can switch out - again very Bioshock in space vibes all round.

Marathon

Release date: TBC

A classic shooter is getting more than a fresh lick of paint in Bungie’s high-octane remake of Marathon. The announcement trailer seen during the PlayStation Showcase 2023 is peppered with nods to the arcade stylings of the 1994 original, this time in sleek, hyper-pigmented 4K graphics to introduce Marathon to a new generation. It’s good to see Bungie giving some love to other IPs aside from Destiny 2 and Halo, even without a confirmed release date, and it’s safe to say the trailer has whet our appetites for what lies ahead.

Marvel's Wolverine

Developer: Insomniac
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release date: TBC

Undoubtedly one of the biggest surprises of the PlayStation September 2021 showcase came in the shape of those famous adamantium claws belonging to none other than Wolverine. Yes, a new standalone Marvel's Wolverine game is currently in early development. While we're light on details for the moment, we do know Brian Horton is Wolverine's creative director and Cameron Christian is game director. Horton was creative director on Spider-Man Miles Morales and has also worked on games such as Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Christian previously worked on Spider-Man and Spider-Man Miles Morales, as well as other titles such as Sunset Overdrive.  Insomniac revealed its goal is to "respect the DNA of what makes the character so popular, but also try to make it feel fresh" and reflect the studio's spirit.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Remake

Developer: In-house

Release date: TBC

It's been almost 20 years since the release of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and its legend has only spiraled out of control in that time. Thankfully, Konami is working to introduce one of the best PS2 games to a whole new generation of players, with a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake for PS5. While we're yet to get any concrete details on the expected changes, or a look at any real-time gameplay, we are keen to see what steps Konami will take to modernize this exceptionally important (and incredibly strange) stealth-action game. 

New Mass Effect

Developer: BioWare
Publisher: EA
Release date: TBC

It might be quite a way off release, but that isn't going to stop us being ridiculously overexcited for a brand new Mass Effect game - aka Mass Effect 5. Seemingly picking up after the events of Mass Effect 3, we'll be seeing some old faces return and some plot lines picked back up. Of course, the big question of whether Shepard will return remains, but we're ready for everything.

Phantom Blade 0

Release date: TBC

If you're a fan of samurai swashbuckling and moody feudal Japan as a setting, Phantom Blade 0 seems to be promising us both. The third person action title is yet to have a confirmed release date, but from what we've seen at the PlayStation Showcase 2023, your character has "66 days to live". What will he do with it? "Get my heart back," he responds. We don't know much else just yet, but its brooding color scheme and fast-paced melee combat seem like a dynamic blend of Gungrave GORE aesthetics with Ghost of Tsushima action, and we're already here for it.

Pragmata

Developer: Capcom

Release date:
TBC

Capcom revealed a mysterious new game called Pragmata that leaves more questions than it answers, but certainly piqued a lot of interest when it was added to the upcoming PS5 games list. Described as a "thought-provoking game", the trailer shows someone in what looks like a space suit in a futuristic setting, where they encounter a young girl and holo-cat. While it won't be coming until 2023, we're certainly eager to learn more about this rather enigmatic adventure.

Ever wondered whether Journey would be massively improved with a sword? Well, that's what Sword of the Sea looks to be offering. Developed alongside former Thatgamecompany artist, who helped shape the iconic look of indies like Flow, Flower, and Journey, this beautiful indie looks set to put a focus on exploration and free-flowing navigation, with your armament used not only for defense but hyperkinetic sand-surfing too. Sword of the Sea honestly looks like a real delight, and one we can't wait to see more of.
