The PS5 is here. Sony’s next-gen console is making a big splash as the star of the most successful PlayStation launch to date. With unlimited power and providing a whole new dimension of sensations thanks to its revolutionary DualSense controller, PS5 has already dazzled players around the world. This is the most powerful console that Sony has ever created. But what’s a console without a game library?
The PlayStation 5 launch has been accompanied by a fantastic selection of titles to welcome the new console. There are exclusive Sony console games like the spectacular remake of Demon’s Souls or the exciting Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales as well as vastly improved versions of titles we already knew, like Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition. But that’s just the beginning!
PS5 already has a game library that will delight every gamer, but there’s much more to come. Sony’s The Future of Gaming conference made it clear that there are great titles on their way that will leave us speechless. Want to know which ones?
In today’s article, we’ll review the best PS5 launch games as well as the video games that are going to drop in 2021. Let’s get to it!
Exclusive PS5 launch games
We start our list off with Demon’s Souls, the spectacular remake of the From Software masterpiece that inspired other greats such as the Dark Souls saga, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice or the superb Bloodborne.
The game is an exact recreation of Miyazaki’s original title, once again plunging us into the kingdom of Boletaria to face the curse. After succumbing to a demon, we will need to collect souls to recover our body and have any chance of defeating the threat menacing us.
Visually stunning and as challenging (and frustrating!) as the original, Demon’s Souls is a classic resurrected to make the most of Sony’s new console. Are you ready to die again?
Astro’s Playroom is the alluring way your PlayStation 5 will welcome you to the next generation of video games. The title is pre-installed on all PS5s and is designed to demonstrate all of the console’s new functions, especially the possibilities of its innovative DualSense controller.
In Astro’s Playroom you accompany the adorable Astro through various worlds where you can pick up all kinds of PlayStation collectibles. They will teach you how the DualSense controller is capable of interacting with the movement of your hands, and even when you blow into the mic. You’ll also discover how it can transfer the feeling of sensations and textures to your hands.
Fun, endearing, and full of nods to the story and characters we’ve known since the birth of the first PlayStation, Astro’s Playroom is a great, free game you shouldn’t pass up
