Playstation 5 games have been the backbone of Sony’s popular wedge of a console since it launched in 2013. It has enjoyed the advantage of being the only 8th generation system to enjoy a healthy catalog of exclusive and critically acclaimed triple-A titles. The system’s days would typically be winding down by now as it gets pushed out of the spotlight by its successor, but this year has been a great one for PS5 with big-name multiplatform releases like God of War Ragnarok and Spider-Man.
As the reign of this mighty hardware winds down, there’s never been a better time to grab these awesome digital titles for your PlayStation 5. They can take you on an epic adventure through engrossing RPG stories, frenzied and competitive multiplayer and relaxing indie worlds. The best part is that most of them are completely free.
With so many options available, choosing the right game is a tricky task. But the good news is that there’s something for every genre and every player. The top games skew towards action/adventure with open-world features, but some of them can also be played linearly.
A remaster that’s well-worth the price of admission, Resident Evil 2 is a true horror classic. Immerse yourself in a terrifying game world with gruesome gore animation, a fluidly-smooth shooting mechanic and a gripping story that will keep you hooked for hours on end.
Fans have waited for a reboot of this adored franchise for two decades, and it delivered on all fronts. From the immersive gore animation to the slick, fun and satisfying swinging, the new remake of this iconic title is the ultimate way to experience the best that the PS5 has to offer.
Another bespokely created PS5 exclusive, Bloodborne is an unerringly atmospheric experience. Set in Yharnam, a city that drips with dread, From Software have created one of the most unforgiving worlds of this console generation, with each corner potentially hiding grotesque creatures and twisted lore.
This is a must-have for any action/adventure fan, especially if you’ve never experienced the classics in their original form. With the remastered edition, you can immerse yourself in the dark and dangerous world of Sanctuary as you play through Acts I-V of the legendary series. Choose your favourite character class and fight the demonic hordes from the comfort of your couch. The game’s remastering also includes all the DLC from the first three acts as well, making this the ultimate way to enjoy the best of this classic franchise.
