Here's all the new PS5 games for 2024 and beyond!

Upcoming PS5 Games

Expeditions: A MudRunner Game

With Sabre Interactive having pretty much nailed the off-road racing genre down with PS Plus Extra mainstays MudRunner and SnowRunner, it seems the developer is now looking to expand the off-road genre in an intriguing new direction. Merging exploration gameplay with a robust off-road driving physics engine, this feels about as close to a celebration of Afrika's 15th anniversary as we're likely to see in modern gaming.

Upcoming PS5 Games

Crown Wars The Black Prince

By all appearances, Crown Wars appears to be a response to the age-old question: "What would XCOM look like if it was set in Medieval Europe?" As you might hope, it looks brutal and oozing with bloodshed.

Upcoming PS5 games

As Dusk Falls

  • When available, you can find As Dusk Falls trophies here
  • Release Date: March 7, 2024
  • Developer: Interior/Night
  • Genre: Narrative
An award-winning game that already saw a release in 2023 on Xbox consoles, 2024 will finally see this narrative adventure coming over to PS5. Coming from ex-Quantic Dream designer Caroline Marchal, this story has you navigating a clash between two families in the Arizona desert — one in which your every decision matters.

WWE 2K24

With a cover that features an overwhelming amount of Cody Rhodes, this year's edition of WWE 2K will reportedly offer new match types, fixes for old match types, and classic wrestlers like Stone Cold Steve Austin and Andre the Giant. Basically, it's everything you've come to expect from this franchise — likely for good and for bad. Here's hoping it's largely for good this year!

Upcoming PS5 games

Unicorn Overlord

The studio behind 13 Sentinels and Dragon's Crown Pro meets the publisher behind the Persona series — could there be a greater match, even in heaven? This tactical RPG blends genres but looks to give a fresh perspective on the groundwork laid by games like Tactics Ogre Reborn. Absolutely do not let this one pass you by.

Upcoming PS5 games

Contra: Operation Galuga

After Contra Rogue Corps broke all of our collective hearts, Konami have instead reached out to some of the steadiest hands in retro-feel gaming — WayForward — to make a new one for us. It's looking for more like Contra at least, so that's a good start. Now we just need to see if these devs can stick the landing.

Upcoming PS5 games

Star Wars Battlefront Classic Collection

  • Release Date: March 14, 2024
  • Developer: Aspyr
  • Genre: Third-person shooter
The Star Wars Battlefront Classic Collection is heading for PS5 and PS4, bringing 64 player online matches and a whole host of returning modes from the PS2 original titles to modern consoles. Plus, there'll be trophies to earn, so look forward to that.

  • Developer: Triband
  • Genre: Sports? simulator
Having already gotten belly laughs from mobile and PC audiences, the time has at last come for What the Golf to come to PS5 and PS4. Expect the answer to the game's all-encompassing question of "What is golf?" to involve everything from gnomes to planets.

Upcoming PS5 Games

Outcast: A New Beginning

After Outcast: Second Contact brought this classic PC series back to life in 2017, Outcast A New Beginning will finally take us one step beyond the original outing with a brand-new adventure. Expect alien planets teeming with things to shoot, some quips à la Uncharted, and hopefully a good time all-round.

Upcoming PS5 games

Hi-Fi Rush

  • Release Date: March 19, 2024
  • Developer: Tango Gameworks
  • Genre: Stylish Rhythm Action Game
The second (and most exciting) of four Xbox games coming to PS5 in 2024, Hi-Fi Rush is a rhythm third-person action game that absolutely deserves your attention. It's got a great cast of memorable characters, some excellent music, and it doesn't outstay its welcome.

Upcoming PS5 games

Alone in the Dark

  • When available, you can find Alone in the Dark trophies here
  • Release Date: March 20, 2024
  • Developer: Pieces Interactive
  • Genre: Survival Horror
This preeminent survival horror series has been dormant since 2015's widely panned Alone in the Dark Illumination, but hopes are high for this (repeatedly delayed) PS5 reboot starring big names like Jodie Comer and David Harbour.

Upcoming PS5 games

Dragon's Dogma 2

We finally have the Dragon's Dogma 2 release date and can get our hands on this epic-looking RPG in the not-to-distant future. You can expect huge boss battles with towering foes. You’ll have to avoid being turned to stone by the one and only Medusa. Plus, you can choose from an array of awesome classes which all come with their own unique skill sets.

Upcoming PS5 games

Rise of the Ronin

Coming from developer Team Ninja, PlayStation Studios has teamed up with Koei Tecmo to bring the hardy action game Rise of the Ronin to life as a PS5 exclusive. It looks glorious and stunning and full of blood — just how we like it! Set during the onset of the Japanese Industrial Revolution, we can't wait for this game to land on PS5 in March.

South Park Snow Day PS5

South Park: Snow Day!

After two games in The Stick of Truth series of RPGs, South Park is branching out into new territory with Snow Day. The game appears to be a MOBA when you and your friends can co-operate and battle online. It's also got a season pass at launch, so it's definitely going for something ambitious with the series. Will it take off? That all remains to be seen.

Upcoming Games 2025

HappyFunland

  • Release Date: March 26, 2024
  • Developer: PERPETUAL
  • Genre: Survival Horror
Late night PSVR2 horror survival in a creepy theme park? No, it's not The Dark Pictures Anthology Switchback VR — it's HappyFunland! It's a cool setting and horror games lend themselves well to VR, so I'm sure this will be a good time.

Upcoming PS5 games

Felix the Cat

  • When available, you can find Felix the Cat trophies here
  • Release Date: March 28, 2024
  • Developer: Hudson Soft; Compiled by Konami
  • Genre: Platformer
This collection will contain both Felix the Cat games for Nintendo Entertainment System and Nintendo Game Boy, both of which will come to PS5 and PS4 with trophies to earn. Well liked in their day, it's definitely cool to see classic platformers like these getting some renewed attention. One for the retro gamers, for sure.

Rugrats

Rugrats Adventures in Gameland

While it might look like a remake of a classic Game Boy/Nintendo Entertainment System game, Rugrats Adventures in Gameland is actually a brand-new outing in a familiar style. It's got platforming puzzles, retro music, plus a HD mode for heartless players who hate old things.

Upcoming Games 2024

Freedom Planet 2

  • When available, you can find Freedom Planet 2 trophies here
  • Release Date: April 4, 2024
  • Developer: GalaxyTrail
  • Genre: Platformer
After the success of their Sonic the Hedgehog inspired first game, it's great to see GalaxyTrail back for another helping of fast arcade platforming action with Freedom Planet 2. The game looks to offer more of the great 2D pixel art and will feature a whopping 24 stages to play through.

Upcoming PS5 games

Grounded

  • Release Date: April 16, 2024
  • Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
  • Genre: Third-Person Survival Crafting
The third of four Xbox games coming to PS5 in 2024, Grounded is a co-op online survival game that can be a great blast to play with friends. Basically, you play as kids shrunk down who are forced to survive amongst the bugs in a garden. It's a great concept and it's well executed, so look forward to that one when it arrives.

Upcoming PS5 games

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

While 2024 looks like it will bring back the classic Suikoden games, why cling to old PS1 remakes when you can play something new from some of the original creative talent behind the series. Eiyuden Chronicle promises to recapture the spirit of Suikoden while also updating it properly for the modern age — a dream come true for any classic JRPG fan.

Upcoming PS5 games

Tales of Kenzera: Zau

Abubakar Salim — the actor behind Assassin's Creed Origin's Bayek — introduced his studio's first game as an exploration of grief in the wake of losing a parent. However, don't let that mislead you into thinking Tales of Kenzera will be one long soppy adventure. Instead, you'll be bashing your way through technical boss battles, seemingly as a means of exorcising your demons. This one looks like a (sadness tinged) blast!

Upcoming PS5

SaGa Emerald Beyond

This stunning new entry in the SaGa series — once a spin-off from the Final Fantasy series — gives players more branching storylines and more cool technical tools to mess around with in combat than ever before. Five stories interact at the Junction, where your characters can travel to one of 17 unique worlds. It's turn-based, it's gorgeous, and it's absolutely stuffed with numbers — we can't wait for SaGa Emerald Beyond.

Upcoming PS5 games

Another Crab’s Treasure

  • Release Date: April 25, 2024
  • Developer: Aggro Crab
  • Genre: Soulslike
From the makers of the solidly fun workplace-themed Roguelite adventure Going Under, this little crab-themed Soulslike looks to have a similar level of charm, humor, and challenge at its heart. Will it be this year's Lies of P? Sure, why not?

Upcoming PS5 games

Stellar Blade

  • When available, you can find Stellar Blade trophies here
  • Release Date: Friday, April 26, 2024
  • Developer: Second EVE Studio
  • Genre: Action
With Stellar Blade's release date finally revealed, we can at last look forward to checking out this PlayStation exclusive action game in April 2024. The game will have a large explorable world and some dazzling combat to master — here's hoping it wows at launch!

Upcoming PS5 games

Sand Land

  • When available, you can find Sand Land trophies here
  • Release Date: April 26, 2024
  • Developer: ILCA
  • Genre: Action RPG
Bringing the world of the Akira Toriyama manga and anime to video game life, we're optimistic Bandai Namco can pour the funds into this one to really make its action RPG debut stand out.

Upcoming PS5 games

Sea of Thieves

  • Release Date: April 30, 2024
  • Developer: Rare
  • Genre: Online Multiplayer Pirate Simulator
So, the Sea of Thieves PS5 rumors were true after all! This online pirate simulator is a great game to share with friends. Everything from navigating your ship to battle ghosts for buried treasure requires coordination, but success feels so good when you finally get the crew together on the same page.

Upcoming PS5 games

Braid Anniversary Edition

How time flies — it's already been fifteen years since Braid, one of the games that truly signalled the first wave of the indie gaming golden age, launched on Xbox Live Arcade. Now, it's back, and it's looking very pretty. Braid Anniversary Edition offers the perfect opportunity for those of us who have never had the chance to play this indie classic on PS5.

Upcoming Games 2024

Umbraclaw

  • When available, you can find Umbraclaw trophies here
  • Release Date: May 5, 2024
  • Developer: Inti Creates
  • Genre: Action Platformer
One of the most quietly exciting releases for PS5 and PS4 in 2024 is Umbraclaw, a stunning 2D action game from veterans Inti Creates. In this game, you play as a cat travelling the "Soulplane" and absorbing the souls of other animals for special moves and powers. It's got a stunning art style and a touch of Hollow Knight influence in there — keep your eyes on this one.

Upcoming PS5 games

Prison Architect 2

  • When available, you can find Prison Architect 2 trophies here
  • Release Date: delayed to May 7, 2024
  • Developer: Double Eleven
  • Genre: Strategy
Building on the success of the first entry in this new series, Prison Architect 2 eschews the 2D cartoon-y style of the original game for a 3D vibe. Beyond that, it's sure to be another interest foray into the sim management genre for developer Double Eleven, so look out for this one.

Upcoming Games 2025

EA Sports F1 24

  • Release Date: May 31, 2024
  • Developer: Codemasters
  • Genre: Racing
While it doesn't sound like the Braking Point story mode will be back this year (which means it'll be short one major selling point), these F1 games are typically excellent and well worth playing if you're even half-way interested in the racing series.

Upcoming Games 2024

The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Road

The next chapter of TESO will bring adventurers to the West Weald to deal with a new Daedric Prince: Ithelia. This expansion will come with the highlight feature of Scribing — a customizable magic system for you to mess around with. Sounds like it's gonna be another great year for The Elder Scrolls fans!

Upcoming PS5 games

Destiny 2: The Final Shape

  • When available, you can find Destiny 2 trophies here
  • Release Date: June 4, 2024
  • Developer: Bungie
  • Genre: FPS
With Bungie job cuts and a Marathon delay plaguing development, The Final Shape ultimately got pushed back to halfway through 2024. That said, fans can still look forward to what should be a thrilling next chapter in their eternal live-service shooter of choice.

Upcoming PS5 games

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree

  • You can view the Elden Ring trophies here
  • Release Date: June 21, 2024
  • Developer: FromSoftware
  • Genre: Open-world Soulslike
The genre of this one really has thrown me — what do you call Soulslikes from the creator of the Soulslike genre? "Souls" games? Anyway, a tremendous Elden Ring DLC trailer has dropped, letting all us know when we can finally get our hands on Shadow of the Erdtree — June 2024. Well, Tarnished? Ready for another adventure in a place slightly adjacent to The Lands Between?

Upcoming PS5 games

Shin Megami Tensei V Vengeance

  • Release Date: June 21, 2024
  • Developer: Atlus
  • Genre: Turn-based JRPG
The original series from which the Persona franchise was born is finally coming back to PlayStation after a brief sojourn over on Nintendo Switch. Shin Megami Tensei V Vengeance will complete the game's story and add new areas and demons to explore. Plus, the battle system is getting a few tweaks, so maybe it was a good thing this never quite landed on PS5 right away?

Upcoming Games 2025

Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate

  • Release Date: June 27, 2024
  • Developer: Mighty Eyes
  • Genre: VR Action Adventure
A time-bending VR adventure with a talking watch and Indiana Jones-esque set pieces? This sounds like exactly the kind of thing we need on PSVR2.

Upcoming PS5 games

Black Myth: WuKong

A bombastic soulslike with stunning graphics and insane action coming straight to PS5 sometime in Q3 2024 — certainly one to keep an eye on.

Upcoming PS5 games

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2

The long, long, long-awaited sequel to Space Marine will finally see a release in 2024 after a sudden, slightly heartbreaking delay last year. Our colleague Tom over at sister site TrueAchievements has barely been able to contain his excitement for all the viscera and chaos this action game looks set to deliver. Here's hoping the wait is worth it.

Upcoming Games 2025

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers 2

  • Release Date: September 26, 2024
  • Developer: Yuke's
  • Genre: Third-person shooter
We really enjoyed playing Earth Defense Force World Brothers on PS Plus, so we're thrilled to see the voxel-heavy spin-off series continue to get some love. Explosions are just bigger and brighter when you switch to colorful cubes!

Possible PS5 releases in 2024 and beyond

These are all the upcoming PS5 games that have earmarked for release in 2024 or beyond but have not yet been given an official release date. We'll be limiting this section to the major PS5 games and PlayStation Studios titles that are set to launch sooner rather than later — with the one exception of GTA VI, because we're sure you'll keep asking if we don't point it out. We'll add new PS5 games onto the list when we hear news of an approaching release window.

Check out all the new PS5 games with unconfirmed release dates for 2024 and beyond in the list below.

Upcoming Games 2024

AI Limit

  • When available, you can find AI Limit trophies here
  • Release Date: TBC 2024
  • Developer: SenseGames
  • Genre: Third-Person Action
With a striking anime-inspired art style, AI Limit looks like it'll be a visual treat for fans looking for the next nearest thing to a Soulsborne game in 2024. Expect this PS5 console exclusive to soak up a ton of attention near launch thanks to its origins as a PlayStation China Hero Project game.

Upcoming PS5 games

Arknights: Endfield

A big-budget spin-off from a popular Chinese-developed tactical RPG mobile game, this one is sure to rope us all in and keep us there with some gacha game mechanics. That said, it looks stunning and the action looks flashy, so who's complaining?

Upcoming PS5 games

Baby Steps

  • When available, you can find Baby Steps trophies here
  • Release Date: Q3 2024
  • Developer: Gabe Cuzillo
  • Genre: Walking Simulator
Baby Steps is a PS5 console exclusive in which you play a man whose legs simply do not work very well, and you must navigate him through an endless hellscape of gnarled rocks and perilous chasms one step at a time. It looks utterly hilarious, the premise is ridiculous, and none of us here can wait.

Upcoming PS5 games

Cities Skyline II

This one's already out on PC and was supposed to be out on PS5 already, but it received a little delay while presumably the developers iron out some of the kinks witnessed in the original release. There's some great innovations happening in this city builder, particularly on how it lets you lay down roads and networks. Exciting to see how it makes the jump to PS5.

Upcoming PS5 games

Death Stranding 2

  • When available, you can find Death Stranding 2 trophies here
  • Release Date: TBC 2024
  • Developer: Kojima Productions
  • Genre: Walking Simulator
A trailer for Death Stranding 2 has been teased for The Game Awards 2023, and hopefully we learn a little more about what exactly we're in for this time. Now that the gameplay and nonsense world of Death Stranding has been established, expect Hideo Kojima to go nuts with this one and just release basically something completely different under the same series banner.

Upcoming PS5 games

Demonschool

  • When available, you can find Demonschool trophies here
  • Release Date: Q2 2024
  • Developer: Necrosoft Games
  • Genre: Strategy
A fascinating blend of Chess, XCOM, Persona, and so much more, if you're keen on your tactical RPGs, you'll definitely want to keep your eyes on Demonschool when it lands on PS5 and PS4 in 2024.

Upcoming PS5 games

Dragon Age Dreadwolf

Dragon Age Dreadwolf is a slippery little one. The game was originally speculated to come out sometime in 2023 and, well, that ship has well and truly sailed. Now, we are hoping to see the game emerge sometime in 2024. However, we recommend not holding your breath on that, as that too could go out of the window. To keep up with all the latest news, make sure to check out our Dragon Age Dreadwolf guide which houses all the relevant information you need!

Upcoming PS5 games

Dragon Ball Sparking Zero

If you've been missing those classic Dragon Ball Budokai Tenkaichi games that you fell in love with back when you had a functioning PS2, then good news: they're bringing that style of fighting game back! Will Sparking Zero be better than Dragon Ball FighterZ? Who cares — there's no such thing as too many Dragon Ball games!

Upcoming PS5 games

Earth Defense Force 6

While it has been delayed, we're still very much looking forward to this year's iteration on the classic Earth Defense Force series. Perhaps known best for being some of the sharpest, messiest graphics on modern hardware, what lurks beneath each EDF game is an addictive and compelling gameplay experience that gets you hooked on perpetually blowing up enormous things. Put a blindfold on and go nuts with this.

Upcoming games PS5

EvilVEvil

  • Release Date: Summer 2024
  • Developer: Toadman Interactive
  • Genre: First-person shooter
This three-player co-op FPS features frantic action, superpowers, and vampires — what more could we want. The game has loads of potential to be a blast with friends, so we're excited to check it out when it launches on PS5 this summer.

Upcoming PS5 games

Epic Mickey Rebrushed

  • Release Date: TBA 2024
  • Developer: Purple Lamp Studios
  • Genre: 3D Platformer
At long last, PS5 and PS4 players will finally get to experience the first part of Epic Mickey's adventure after it remained stuck on the Nintendo Wii for nearly 15 years. With its dark themes (for Disney anyway) and morality system (I know, wild), this one will be a great blast from the past to play through.

Upcoming PS5 games

Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail

  • When available, you can find Final Fantasy XIV trophies here
  • Release Date: Q3 2024
  • Developer: Square Enix Creative Business Unit III
  • Genre: MMORPG
While Final Fantasy XIV's PlayStation console exclusivity will finally come to an end in 2024, that's no reason to look down on this behemoth of a MMO. The next Dawntrail expansion is set to scale things up even further with a FFXVI crossover, new places to discover, and more content than most of us have the time for.

Upcoming PS5 Games

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn

If you've developed a taste for games like God of War Ragnarok and Final Fantasy XVI over the last few years and are now wondering where you'll get your fix in 2024, Flintlock looks to be your answer. Offering an open-world with various weapons to master and a touch of magic in the air, this one has some real potential behind it.

Upcoming PS5 Games

Freedom Planet 2

Freedom Planet 2 hopes to elevate the glorious Sonic the Hedgehog-inspired platforming action from the first game to new heights, and with a wait this long for the sequel, we have to imagine it'll all be worth it when this one launches.

Upcoming PS5 games

Gundam Breaker 4

  • Release Date: Early 2024
  • Developer: Crafts & Meister
  • Genre: Third-Person Mecha
Touting three player co-op multiplayer and over 250 custom Mobile Suits to mess around with, Gundam Breaker 4 looks like a dream come true for fans of the series and PS5 owners who just love building themselves some robots.

Upcoming PS5 Games

Harold Halibut

  • When available, you can find Harold Halibut trophies here
  • Release Date: Early 2024
  • Developer: Slow Bros.
  • Genre: Narrative Adventure
With its stunning stop-motion aesthetic and appealingly moody tone, Harold Halibut stands out as a particularly notable PS5 game to watch in 2024. Expect more narrative than gameplay in this one — it looks like a perfect fit if you've been craving an interactive story to take part in.

Upcoming PS5 games

Hollow Knight Silksong

2024 is surely the year, right? You wouldn't hold out on us another year, would you Team Cherry? The wait for this Hollow Knight successor has felt eternal, but when it hits PS5, all that will matter is how good it is to be back in this mechanically wonderful world.

Upcoming PS5 games

Lost Records: Bloom & Rage

This adventure from the studio that brought you Life is Strange has an intriguing Stephen King vibe and some stunning visual polish — just what we like to see in our new PS5 games.

Upcoming PS5 games

Mecha Break

  • When available, you can find Mecha Break trophies here
  • Release Date: Late 2024
  • Developer: Seasun Games
  • Genre: Mech
Looking to beat other mech games like Armored Core and Mobile Suit Gundam at their own game, Mecha Break looks to possess the aerial spectacle and twitchy action that fans of the genre can't get enough of.

Upcoming PS5 Games

Metaphor: ReFantazio

From the creative leads that brought you the Persona games you actually like, what we've seen from Metaphor ReFantazio gameplay trailer looks like a fascinating spin on Atlus' popular RPG series. We'll need to get hands-on with this one before we make any assumptions, but it's certainly a PS5 game worth keeping an eye on.

Upcoming Games 2025

Metro: Awakening

  • When available, you can find Matro Awakening trophies here
  • Release Date: TBA 2024
  • Developer: Vertigo Games
  • Genre: VR Survival Action
The atmosphere-dense Metro series coming to PSVR2 wasn't on our bingo card for 2024, but we're more than happy to take it. It looks like much of the original series' quirks will make it to this entry, so expect limited ammo and claustrophobic monster attacks!

Upcoming PS5 games

Monster Hunter Stories

  • Release Date: Summer 2024
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Genre: Monster Hunter
With Monster Hunter Wilds PS5 reveal getting new players hooked on the series, it's not a wonder Capcom want to get the good times rolling with another Monster Hunter port. This time, it'll be the previously 3DS exclusive Monster Hunter Stories, which will arrive on PS4 with voice acting, updated graphics, and plenty of monsters to hunt.

Upcoming PS5 games

R-Type Tactics I • II Cosmos

A series famous for its tricky shoot-'em-ups, R-Type Tactics instead swaps out the fast-blazing gunplay for a more strategic, tactical-style gameplay. This fancy set of remakes revives two classic R-Type Tactics games on the PSP for the PS5 era and is sure to be a must-play for strategy game fans.

Upcoming games ps5

Penny's Big Breakaway

From the immaculately talented developers that brought you one of the best Sonic games ever made — Sonic ManiaPenny's Big Breakaway takes those platforming chops into the third dimension and it looks so good. This wonderfully creative title sees you take control of Penny, a street performer, and her insane magical yo-yo named, well, Yo-Yo. The yo-yo transforms into a giant wheel, things look chaotic all of the time, and I can't wait to play this one on PS5.

Upcoming PS5 games

Schim

  • Release Date: TBC 2024
  • Developer: Ewoud van der Werf
  • Genre: Puzzle
This delightful PlayStation Indie sees you attempting to cross busy Dutch-inspired towns by only using shadows. Expect plenty of puzzles to negate your progress as you work out how to get your little shadow-frog character from A to B.

Upcoming PS5 games

Shadow x Sonic Generations

  • Release Date: Fall 2024
  • Developer: Sonic Team
  • Genre: Platformer
Shadow x Sonic Generation's PS5 reveal at the January 2024 State of Play got us all hyped up for the return of one of the best PS3 games around on PS5. What's more, this Sonic Generations remake is getting new content derived from PS2 cult classic Shadow the Hedgehog. It seems dreams really can come true for Sonic fans.

Upcoming PS5 games

Silent Hill 2

When available, you can find Silent Hill 2 trophies here
  • Release Date: TBC 2024
  • Developer: Bloober Team
  • Genre: Survival Horror
Headlining all the new Silent Hill games coming to PS5 is this remake of a PS2 masterpiece by Bloober Team. While some of us might consider the upcoming Silent Hill 2 doomed, others are excited to finally experience this story with glossy graphics and a new combat system. We'll see how it all comes together when it eventually launches as a PS5 exclusive.

Upcoming PS5 games

Star Wars Outlaws

  • When available, you can find Star Wars Outlaws trophies here
  • Release Date: Late 2024
  • Developer: Massive Entertainment
  • Genre: Action RPG
With a bunch of footage for this game already out in the wild and with reports that Star Wars Outlaws' planets will be bigger than several zones in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, we're left a little conflicted looking at this one. Here's hoping it all pans out and delivers on the promise of an out-and-out Star Wars third-person adventure. The game has now been roughly confirmed for Late 2024.

Upcoming PS5 games

Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars

These absolute legendary JRPG games look set to return in an upgraded "2D-HD" style, and it's a miracle we've even waited patiently for this long. This series really deserves as much exposure as it can get, so keep an eye on this collection.

Upcoming PS5 games

The First Descendant

Blending a bunch of genres together into one insane-looking action game, The First Descendant will feature Unreal Engine 5 graphics and online co-op/looter shooter gameplay. Here's hoping it keeps the grind down and the rewards coming!

Upcoming PS5 games

The Legend of Heroes: Trails Through Daybreak

What these action RPGs lack in ground-breaking visual tech, they more than make up for it with content and adventurous storytelling. Touting an interwoven and interconnected tale with plenty of bombastic action and decision making, you're sure to have a blast if you've got a tolerance for other underloved RPG series like Star Ocean or Ys.

Upcoming games ps5

The Plucky Squire

  • When available, you can find The Plucky Squire trophies here
  • Release Date: 2024
  • Developer: All Possible Futures
  • Genre: Action Adventure
With its unique perspective changing gimmick, in which the titular Plucky Squire leaves and re-enters a magical story book, this one has left a big impression on our brains for a while now. Sony was feeling confident enough about this one to feature it in a highlight of all the great games coming to PS5 in 2024, so I think that speaks to the standard we can expect with this adventure.

Upcoming PS5 games

Towers of Aghasba

This ambitious looking indie dares, much like Tchia, to take aim at The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and just do it different. That said, the scale of fantasy on show in Towers of Aghasba looks next-level, so we're very optimistic for this one.

Upcoming PS5 games

Until Dawn

  • Release Date: TBA 2024

The Visions of Mana PS5 reveal has set us up for a charming new mainline entry in this beloved tastefully retro-style series of RPGs.

Upcoming Games 2025

  • Release Date: TBA 2024
  • Developer: XR Games

Carrying the torch for the excellent Zombie Army series, this new VR entry transports all of the Nazi zombie killing action you love into virtual reality. Chuck grenades, flinch from exploding zombies, and keep firing your pistol — the odds are against you in this one.

Upcoming PS5 games

Assassin's Creed Red

  • When available, you can find Assassin's Creed Red trophies here
  • Release Date: March 2025 (reportedly at the latest; could be earlier)
  • Developer: Ubisoft Quebec
  • Genre: Action RPG
Assassin's Creed Red is the latest PS5 entry into the long-running series from Ubisoft. Set in Japan, it is rumored to have an African Assassin in the lead role and return to the more large-scale open world of the RPG trilogy over the more compact AC Mirage. While a few have suggested that late 2024 might see it's release, it seems more likely that 2025 would suit Ubisoft's more recent bi-annual release schedule while the series is in flux awaiting its Assassins' Creed Infinity PS5 live-service platform.

Upcoming PS5 games

Grand Theft Auto VI

Grand Theft Auto VI is coming to PS5 in 2025. You heard that right, GTA 6 is mythical no more. Rockstar has now shown off the game with a first trailer full of Florida energy in the most literal sense, having taken real-life news footage and recreated it in the fictional parallel worlds of Vice City and the State of Leonida. The biggest gaming franchise in the world is back, baby.
