Here Are The Best PS5 Games 2020: PlayStation 5 Games To Look Out For
Gods & Monsters
Ubisoft did release a short trailer last year, showing an unnamed female doing battle with a mythological monster in what seemed to be a beautiful depiction of ancient Greece. Though initially scheduled for release on February 25 2020, it is not expected to hit the stores until 2021. However, you can be sure that the developers of the entire Assassin’s Creed series would be able to put together a thriller.
This epic action RPG thriller was the very first game confirmed to be in the PlayStation 5. In this game, players get to control characters in the last exalted Order of Knights in a fantasy universe that has been split into 5 realms: Fire, Earth, Water, Spirit and Air. With combat focusing more on melee attacks than ranged attacks, Godfall may turn out to be a thriller.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 5
There have been several rumours and speculations about the next Call of Duty, but Activision has assured fans and investors alike that they have been working on the next CoD game. This has been confirmed by the popular gaming news and reviews site Kotaku. Like almost every game in the CoD series, the next Call of Duty is most likely going to be released in the fall of this year, and would most likely be in the Black Ops Universe. So just keep your fingers crossed and continue enjoying Modern Warfare, which is probably the most successful Call of Duty in the entire franchise.
Horizon Zero Dawn 2
Horizon Zero Dawn has sold over 10 million copies since it’s release in 2017 and has proven to be among the elite games of the PlayStation 4. Considering the huge success of the first game, it is expected that Horizon Zero Dawn 2 is already being developed. With no confirmed announcement of the release date yet, it is most likely to come out in the fall of this year, or probably in 2021 and would most likely be exclusive to the long-awaited PlayStation 5.
Lord of The Rings: Gollum
The mysterious but largely recurring character in the books The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings trilogy with a dual personality who calls himself Gollum finally gets to tell his own tale. Players will get the opportunity to roam Middle Earth as the corrupted little creature, who is solely under the influence of the one ring. His Preciousss. The story focuses on the events of his life after The Hobbit, and just before the story of The Fellowship Of The Ring. For most fans of Middle Earth, this is one game to look forward to.
The development of this mysterious game has been a closely guarded secret, other than the little teaser which was released in 2018. From the little factual information that can be found, Starfield is set in space. There hasn’t been any tangible announcement about when the game is most likely to hit the shelves. However, we are quite sure it would be sometime after the PlayStation 5 has hit the market.
Rainbow Six Siege
Since Ubisoft launched its online team-based tactical first-person shooter game in 2015, it has only grown from strength to strength. With a huge fan base of more than 55 million users and still growing steadily, the developers have been releasing steady updates on playable operators and new maps. It was no surprise when Ubisoft announced that Siege will also be available on PlayStation 5.
Electronic Arts have already announced that the next Battlefield would be on the PlayStation 5 platform. It’s still unclear if the game will be focusing on another historical war or the modern era, like the last entry Battlefield V, which focused on the second world war. But you can rest assured that whatever the developers have got planned for its fans, it is definitely going to be even more breathtaking and destructive than the previous ones.
Rainbow Six Quarantine
Well, it turns out that Siege isn’t going to be the only game in the Rainbow Six series running on Sony’s next-gen flagship (not that there was ever any doubt about Ubisoft’s capabilities). So, fans of Siege and the Rainbow Six series should gear up and get ready to take on deadly zombies, using the same tactical abilities that made Siege such a huge success.
If you’ve played Bulletstorm, then you know that whatever the developers decide to come up with next is most likely to be just as good, or even better. Set in a mysterious planet named Enoch, People Can Fly’s Outriders is a third-person shooter game every person in the gaming community should be anticipating. Players get to choose one of the three classes a Pyromancer, a sly Trickster or a badass Devastator.
Watch Dogs Legion
Watch Dogs Legion was initially scheduled to be released last year, but for some reason, it wasn’t. It was already slated for the PlayStation 4 but Ubisoft has finally decided to make the game launch as a cross-gen on both consoles. With the added capabilities of the PlayStation 5, Watch Dogs Legion would be a lot more interesting.
God of War 2
The reboot of God of War was “THE BOMB!!!”, and with the amount of recognition and accolades it got at the time of its launch, it is highly unlikely that Kratos and his son Atreus doesn’t get to go on a second adventure. Yes, there hasn’t been any official trailer or even an announcement to confirm that there really would be a God of War 2 but from all indications, it is quite safe to say that Kratos and Atreus would land on PlayStation 5.
Elders Scroll 6
Fans of the Elder Scroll series have been waiting a long time for the sixth sequel in the adventures of Tamriel. When Todd Howard of Bethesda Game Studio finally made the announcement and introduced the teaser during the E3 of 2018. But it may still take a while for Elder Scroll 6 to hit the market because Bethesda has made the release of Starfield their top priority. So as soon as Starfield drops, then be rest assured that Elder Scroll 6 would be next.
Sniper Elite 5
Sniper Elite 4 was a Hit. The tactical third-person shooter game’s fourth instalment was a huge success, so it was no surprise when the developers’ Rebellion Development announced that a fifth instalment in the Sniper Elite series. Although no official date has been announced, it is expected to be released after Sony’s next-gen console hits the market, so it is most likely going to feature in the PlayStation 5.
Dying Light 2
The upcoming sequel to our beloved role-playing survival horror game is expected to be released by this year’s fall. With Techland confirming that Dying Light 2 is scheduled to feature as a cross-gen, you just have to wait for the PlayStation 5 version to be out if you want to enjoy the game at full capacity.
Batman Arkham Legacy
It’s been four years since Arkham Knight was released, so it is only logical that talks about the next Arkham should have started already. Apart from a cryptic tweet that was posted on September 23 2019, there has been no valid information whatsoever. It’s even possible that the next Batman Arkham won’t be called Legacy. But one thing is for sure, the Knight of Gotham will be coming really soon.
Uncharted 4 really was a good way to end the journey that started back then in Sony’s third-generation console the PlayStation 3. But when Uncharted – The Lost Legacy came in 2017, it showed us that there is still plenty of stories to tell. There haven’t been any announcements about Uncharted 5, but it’s possible the developers already have something cooking.
The success of Marvel web-slinging hero in New York made it arguably the best superhero game ever to be made. It’s only logical for fans to be anxiously anticipating a Spiderman 2, but no announcement has been made, to confirm any rumour that has been going around. But when a second instalment of the web-slinging hero is finally released, it is definitely going to be on PlayStation 5.
6 years have passed since the last sequel of Rockstar’s GTA, but we really can’t blame Rockstar, because Red Dead Redemption 2 which was in the fall of 2018 has been nothing short of breathtaking. There haven’t been any announcements about a new GTA, but when it does come out it is definitely going to be on the PlayStation 5 platform and would surely be one of the best PS5 games.
Gothic used to be an awesome game, rivalling the likes of Elder Scrolls back then in 2001. But for some reason, it wasn’t as successful as it should have been, so not much was said about it for a very long time. But the good news is that a new and improved version of Gothic is already being developed and although there hasn’t been any release date yet, it is most likely to be available on PlayStation 5.
