Upcoming PS5 Games:

Upcoming PS5 Games – Dead Space

  • Release date – January 27, 2023
  • Genre: Survival Horror Shooter
  • Developer: EA

A full-throated remake of the 2008 classic, Dead Space completely overhauls the audiovisual presentation to bring EA’s horrifying survival horror effort kicking and screaming into 2023. With completely remade character models, environments, shadows, lighting and reflections (together with togglable 60 FPS performance and 30 FPS fidelity graphics modes), Dead Space looks set to take the gloriously compelling third-person limb-blasting, face-tearing and survival horror beats of Dead Space to all new horrific heights.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Hogwarts Legacy

  • Release date – February 10, 2023
  • Genre: Action RPG
  • Developer: Portkey Games, WB Games

Set in the sprawling Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Hogwarts Legacy takes place during the 1800s as players take on the role of a student in their fifth year at the titular school. This is a Harry Potter fans’ dream: you’ll attend classes, mingle with your fellow students, battle against evil wizards and goblins, and explore beautiful, fantasy-flavoured highlights of the Forbidden Forest, Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. PS5 owners can look forward to full VRR support and options for 30 FPS and 60 FPS graphics modes. For fans of the Potterverse and action RPGs in general, Hogwarts Legacy looks to satisfy grandly on both counts.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Wild Hearts

  • Release date – February 17, 2023
  • Genre: Action Adventure
  • Developer: Koei Tecmo

While Wild Hearts from publisher EA and developer Koei Tecmo might look like a loving letter to Capcom’s Monster Hunter games, it’s arguably worth pointing out that Wild Hearts actually has a couple of tricks up its sleeve to separate it from its peers. Firstly, Wild Hearts has been developed with next generation console hardware in mind, meaning that the level of visual fidelity is far beyond what you’ll see in Capcom’s most recent monster hunting effort, Monster Hunter Rise. Furthermore, Wild Hearts puts a special twist in its own take on the monster hunting formula by allowing players to discover, craft and reinvigorate old technology to aid them in their fight against a broad range of very different mythical beasts. Throw in enough quests and loot to sink a battleship, together with seamless online co-op play and it sure looks like Wild Hearts will carve out its own compelling take on the monster hunting formula when it releases in February 2023.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Atomic Heart

  • Release date – February 21, 2023
  • Genre: First-Person Shooter
  • Developer: Mundfish

A first-person shooter set in the Soviet Union in an alternate 1955, Atomic Heart follows Major Nechaev, aka P-3, a mental unstable special assignments officer who is sent to keep facility 3826 under control. In doing so, you’ll battle against haywire robots and biomechanical experiments without improvised weapons and powerful abilities suing the Polymer Glove, which grants you telekinesis, freezing and electricity. It all sounds a bit BioShock-y, but Atomic Heart stands on its own two feet with a unique setting and comprehensive crafting system, not to mention jaw-dropping cutting edge visuals that shine on PS5.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Like A Dragon: Ishin

  • Release date – February 21, 2023
  • Genre: Action-RPG
  • Developer: Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio

It’s been nearly a decade, but PS3 & PS4’s Yakuza spin-off Like A Dragon: Ishin is finally gracing the US and UK for PS5 in February 2023. Ishin brings the gangster-brawler back in time to the Bakumatsu period in the mid-1800s, where historical characters inhabiting the likeness of staples such as Kiryu and Majima weave a fresh narrative unrelated to the previous Like A Dragon games. As Sakamoto Ryomoa, players wield four different fighting styles including Swordsman, Gunslinger, Brawler and Wild Dancer, combining flash swordsmanship, old-fashioned fisticuffs and firearms. As with any Like A Dragon game worth its salt, there’s a gorgeous open world to explore ripe with side quests, and there’s still plenty of trademark Like A Dragon irreverent humor. Simply put, Like A Dragon: Ishin is shaping up to be another essential title in the franchise and a long overdue western release of one the best games in the series.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Horizon: Call Of The Mountain

  • Release date – February 22, 2023
  • Genre: First-Person Action Adventure (PSVR 2 Only)
  • Developer: Firesprite (PlayStation Studios)

Transplanting the majesty of Horizon’s universe into a full-throated VR adventure is no mean feat and yet developer Firesprite looks like they may have done just that with Horizon: Call of the Mountain. Shifting the action away from series heroine Aloy, Horizon: Call of the Mountain is a PSVR 2 exclusive adventure that casts players as Ryas, a Shadow Carja prisoner looking to redeem himself by destroying a new threat to the Sundom. An innovative first-person adventure that takes full advantage of the hugely powerful PlayStation VR2 hardware, Horizon: Call of the Mountain has players climbing, leaping, sprinting and blasting machines as they tear through the Sundom on all-new adventure that looks set to be an instant classic and a shining jewel in PSVR 2’s glittering crown of launch games.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

  • Release date – March 3, 2023
  • Genre: Action RPG
  • Developer: Team Ninja

Following very much in the Soulslike template followed by the Nioh games, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty looks set to be glorious marriage between From Software’s superb Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and its own stellar Nioh games. A dark fantasy effort set during the time of Three Kingdoms in China, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty builds upon the Nioh games by the inclusion of traditional Chinese martial arts combat, a reworked magic system and a range of both divine and grotesque enemies to face off against from the depths of Chinese mythology. Based on everything we’ve seen so far, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty could well end up being the best Soulslike in 2023.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Resident Evil 4

  • Release date – March 24, 2023
  • Genre: Survival Horror
  • Developer: Capcom

A true remake in the most traditional sense, Resident Evil 4 looks set to maintain that tricky balancing act between maintaining the essence of the original and adding enough new sheen and Quality of Life additions to keep Resident Evil 4 relevant to the gamers of 2023 as it did to those back in 2005. Hewing closely to the source material, Resident Evil 4 not only boasts absolutely stunning visuals with support for 4K resolution and 60 frames per second action, in addition to a range of ray tracing and new graphical effects, but it keeps the third-person survival horror beats of the 2005 original completely intact and once more invites players to follow Leon into the heart of darkness as he ventures into the darkest corners of rural Spain in search of the missing daughter of the US President. A remake that looks to both improve upon his source material while also maintaining its core, Resident Evil 4 could well be the best survival horror offering of 2023 (and beyond).

Upcoming PS5 Games – Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores

  • Release date – April 19, 2023
  • Genre: Action RPG
  • Developer: Guerrilla Games (PlayStation Studios)

An all-new single-player campaign expansion for Horizon Forbidden West, Burning Shores picks up right where Horizon Forbidden West concluded and sees our flame-haired heroine Aloy, venture to the chaotic wilds of Los Angeles which has now transformed into a perilous volcanic archipelago. Generously stuffed with all new stories, quests, characters, weapons and machines to tangle with, Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores looks to carry the torch of brilliance that its base game ignited with aplomb.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Dead Island 2

  • Release date – April 28, 2023
  • Genre: First Person Hack And Slash, Survival Horror
  • Developer: Deep Silver Dambuster Studios

After a tumultuous development cycle that has seen Dead Island 2 shift between numerous studios, the zombie sequel is leaving the tropical islands of its predecessors behind in favour of the sun-baked streets of Los Angeles. Players take on the role of multiplayer ‘Slayers’ to combat the undead infestation, with a comprehensive crafting system ensuring you’ll concoct all manner of brain-splattering weapons. Speaking of which, creator Dambuster Studios is aiming to make Dead Island 2 one of the goriest games out there, so expect no expenses spared when it comes to spraying copious amounts of claret. Meanwhile, each Slayer promises unique abilities to spice up the gameplay, allowing you to experiment with different play styles to suit your zombie-battering needs. With a healthy dose of irreverence coursing through its veins, this over-the-top bloodbath promises comedy and thrills in abundance.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

The sequel to the stunning Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order which released back in 2019, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a third-person action RPG in which players once again take control of wayward Jedi Cal Kestis, as he attempts to escape the encroaching imperial forces after the eradication of his fellow Jedi. Now a formidable Jedi Knight in his own right, Star Was Jedi: Survivor doubles down on the superb exploration and Metroidvania beats of its predecessor with additional Force based abilities, mounted combat and all new range of planets to explore across the galaxy. Make no mistake, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is shaping up to be one of the best games of 2023 and a real treat for Star Wars fans everywhere.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Street Fighter 6

  • Release date – June 2, 2023
  • Genre: Superhero Action-Adventure
  • Developer: Capcom

An all-new Street Fighter for an all-new generation of gamers, Capcom’s Street Fighter 6 not only expounds upon the fistic pursuits of its predecessor with aplomb, bringing all new fighting mechanics to the fore alongside a roster comprised of old and new fighters alike, but it also brings a complete fresh, open-world single-player campaign to the fore as well. Combining precision fighting mechanics and a fresh new approach to the Street Fighter concept in general, Street Fighter 6 could very well end up being the best in the series when it releases in June 2023.


Upcoming PS5 Games – Diablo 4

  • Release date – June 6, 2023
  • Genre: Dungeon Crawler, Hack and Slash
  • Developer: Blizzard

With Diablo 3 releasing more than a decade ago, it’s certainly fair to say that a return to Diablo’s infernal realm of demons, blood and loot has been long overdue to say the least. With Diablo 4, developer Blizzard is not taking any chances. Though Diablo 4 maintains the core hack, slash and loot gameplay that has sustained the series for well over twenty years, Blizzard’s latest entry in the series boasts completely overhauled visual design, a more ‘grounded’ story than Diablo 3 and a completely seamless graphics engine that boasts no loading screens and highly detailed in-game cinematics. If you’ve been hankering for what looks to be the best dungeon crawler ever made, you need not wait long since Diablo 4 looks like it’ll deliver on its hellish promise and then some when it releases later this year.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Final Fantasy 16

  • Release date – June 22, 2023
  • Genre: JRPG
  • Developer: Square-Enix

Representing a complete left turn from what Square-Enix accomplished with the open-world, bro-trip shenanigans of Final Fantasy 15, Final Fantasy 16 instead puts the series into more familiar ground, putting the player at the heart of a global conflict between nations over powerful Crystals and the titanic Eikon (essentially, summons) that they enable. That, however, is where many of the similarities end however. Designed from the ground up with the PS5 in mind, Final Fantasy 16 takes a much more adult approach to its darker fantasy narrative, alongside a reworked real-time combat system, Final Fantasy 16 allows players to take direct control of Eikons (summons) for the first time in the series history, resulting in some truly titanic battles. Final Fantasy 16 is shaping up to be one of the best entries the series has ever seen and we can’t wait to get stuck in when it releases this June.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Assassin’s Creed Mirage

  • Release date – Spring 2023
  • Genre: Stealth Action Adventure
  • Developer: Ubisoft

Though the more recent Assassin’s Creed titles have been largely enjoyable in their own right, the shift to a massive open-world action RPG would seem to be at odds with the tighter, more stealth focused gameplay of the earlier Assassin’s Creed titles. Seemingly a solution to that very issue, Assassin’s Creed Mirage not only whisks players back in time to the decidedly fresh setting of ninth century Baghdad, but it also promises improved parkour, stealth mechanics and a streamlined focus that moves away from the broader open-world RPG beats of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. As such, it looks like 2023 is the year that Assassin’s Creed returns to its roots and we couldn’t be happier.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

  • Release date – Late 2023
  • Genre: Superhero Action-Adventure
  • Developer: Insomniac Games (PlayStation Studios)

With Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales representing some of the best PS5 superhero games that money can buy, following that up will be quite the task for developer Insomniac Games with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, that much is for sure. Designed solely with the PS5 hardware in mind, not only will Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 be a showcase for Sony’s current generation console, but it looks set to bring together Miles Morales and Peter Parker in a superhero team-up for the ages. Throw in Tony Todd lending his not-so dulcet tones to Venom, who is tipped to be villain of the game and it looks like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is shaping up to be extremely promising to say the least.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty

  • Release date – Late 2023
  • Genre: Open World Action RPG
  • Developer: CDProjeckt RED

Now that Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5 has been fixed to the extent that it’s not only playable but hugely enjoyable and one of the best cyberpunk games on PS5, players can start looking forward to Phantom Liberty, a full-fat single-player campaign expansion for Cyberpunk 2077. Framed as a cyberpunk spy thriller, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty has players fighting alongside (or potentially against) Solomon Reed (played by Idris Elba), in a bid to prevent the United States from collapsing under the weight of a terrifying conspiracy. With nearly three years of polish and sheen under its belt by the time Phantom Liberty arrives later this year, it’s safe to say that Cyberpunk 2077’s first and likely only expansion will hit the ground running when it releases by the end of 2023.

Upcoming PS5 Games – Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

  • Release date – Later In 2023 (Delayed)
  • Genre: Superhero Action-Adventure
  • Developer: Rocksteady Studios

Set after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League takes place in a sprawling open-world Metropolis where players follow the titular task force comprised of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. With super baddie Brainiac having invaded Earth and the Justice League brainwashed, it’s up to this motley crew of anti-heroes to save the world from destruction. It’s a poignant release for sure, being the final game to feature the late Kevin Conroy as Batman. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League offers both solo and cooperative play between all four characters, giving you plenty of reason to experiment with each of the Suicide Squad’s unique attributes.

Upcoming PS5 Games – AEW: Fight Forever

  • Release date – Later In 2023 (Exact date TBA)
  • Genre: Wrestling, Sports
  • Developer: Yukes

For the longest time it seemed like that the WWE 2K games would corner the market for wrestling video games indefinitely. Happily then, I can tell you that not only is AEW: Fight Forever coming to spoil that particular party, but it’s also shaping to be a bit of a banger in its own right too. Based on the escapades of All-Elite Wrestling (the main competition for the monolithic WWE), AEW: Fight Forever depicts AEW’s smashmouth, high-octane violence with aplomb, with weapons focused matches and boasts a range of AEW superstars including Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, MJF and more. Perhaps most notable of all though is the fact that AEW: Fight Forever isn’t just seemingly a faster and more accessible title than the games in the WWE 2K series, but it also boasts a control scheme that echoes the great WWF No Mercy from the Nintendo 64 days. For fans of pro-wrestling and old-school wrestling games, AEW: Fight Forever can’t come soon enough.upcoming ps5 games aew fight forever
