Heavenly Bodies
upcoming ps5 games

Developer: 2pt Interactive
Release Date: December 7, 2021

Revealed during the PS5 Indies Initiative event, Heavenly Bodies suits you up for work on a spacecraft in outer space. You’ll use your left and right triggers to move your character’s respective limbs and navigate weightlessness. It looks like a situation where players might assume what’s actually a mechanically disorienting task to be simple and easy, resulting in gut-busting struggles. Just watch the trailer above for some examples. Heavenly Bodies has also been confirmed for PS4 for release sometime in 2021.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach

Five Nights at Freddy's Security Breach
upcoming ps5 games

Developer / Publisher: Steel Wool Studios
Release date: December 16, 2021

Touted as the most ambitious Five Nights at Freddy’s game yet, Security Breach is another of the upcoming PS5 games arriving at some point in 2021. It features a new location called the Mega Pizza Plex and stands as the symbol that Freddy Fazbears’ Pizza isn’t just a small pizzeria chain anymore. It’s like Pizza Planet from Toy Story got invaded by all of Sid’s horrible creations, but with more animatronics and murder than anything, Pixar’s ever created. Darkened hallways, arcades, and creepy toys galore on PS5 later this year.

2022

Rainbow Six Extraction

Rainbow Six Extraction
upcoming ps5 games

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: January 20, 2022

Rather than a spin-off from the very successful Rainbow Six Siege, this is something new, and a little bit more supernatural. You still play as a Rainbow Six Operator, but instead of human foes, you’ll be tasked with taking down a totally new breed of alien parasite that’s infecting the human race. In this exciting addition to the upcoming PS5 games list, you’ll operate in squads of three, playing in PvE matches where the environment is filled with these new, terrifying, rather fast-moving foes.  

Dying Light 2

Dying Light 2
upcoming ps5 games

Developer: Techland
Publisher: Techland
Release date: February 4, 2021

If you’re out of the loop, Dying Light 2 is the sequel to the immense parkouring, zombie-slaying adventure, and is set 15-years after the original. Techland itself describes the time period for this new game as the ‘new Dark Ages, which suggests just how desperate humanity has become in this particular zombie apocalypse. Watch the above 4K demo just to see what you’re in for.

Sifu

Sifu

Developer: Sloclap
Publisher: Devolver
Release date: February 8, 2022

Sifu comes from the creators of Absolver and aims to deliver a story inspired by classic Kung Fu films. You play as a young student who’s spent their life training to take revenge on the assassination squad that killed his entire family. You’ll have to hunt down the murderers one by one across a fictional Chinese city. Obviously, there’s a lot of focus on the game’s combat, which aims to be realistic and raw, but along the way, you’ll also discover an ancient mystery. This involves a magical pendant that revives you after death – but at a cost.

Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West

Developer: Guerrilla Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release date: February 18, 2022

Aloy is well and truly back. That’s right, a Horizon Zero Dawn sequel has officially been revealed and it’ll see Aloy head to post-apocalyptic San Francisco. The trailer looked absolutely gorgeous and bursting with vibrant colors, mysterious machines, and new environments to explore. We even see Aloy underwater wearing what appears to be some kind of breathing mask, which could mean we can expect some underwater sections. It’s great to see that we’ll be able to return to the rich world created by Guerrilla Games and experience a new journey on the PS5. 

Elden Ring

Elden Ring

Developer: FromSoftware
Publisher: Bandai Namco
Release date: February 25, 2022

The next FromSoftware title is a partnership between the acclaimed developer and Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin. Elden Ring is another action RPG, but this is brand new and will follow a new protagonist seemingly known as the Tarnished. You’ll be able to explore the game’s world on horseback, and attack from it too, as this game will feature melee, magic, and ranged combat to use against its giants, fantastical creatures, and other monstrosities. 

Gran Turismo 7

Gran Turismo 7

Developer: Polyphony Digital
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release date: March 4, 2022

Forspoken 

Forspoken 

Developer: Luminous Productions
Publisher: Square Enix
Release date: Spring 2022

Where do we start with Project Athia, or Forspoken as it is now officially known? This game that was “designed for PlayStation 5,” is a console exclusive from Square Enix, and it looks beautiful. The protagonist is seen leaping across cliffs, attacking huge wolves with tree root-esque abilities, and overlooking a gorgeous cloud-filled landscape from the top of a mountain. What’s more, is that famed screenwriter and author Gary Whitta (Star Wars: Rogue One, The Walking Dead) is in charge of a team of “A-list writers” working on the game, which means it could be something very special indeed.

GTA 5

GTA 5

Developer: Rockstar North
Publisher: Rockstar Games
Release date: March 2022

When GTA 5 for the PS5 was first revealed, it was slated to release sometime in 2021, but the most recent PlayStation showcase has since confirmed it now has a March 2022 launch window. With a look at some of the most exciting upcoming releases, the latest GTA 5 trailer showed off upgraded graphics of our next-gen return to Los Santos. Rockstar also confirmed that GTA online will be available in the upgraded release.  

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

Tiny Tina makes up the rules in this world of magic, monsters, treasures, and even a Dragon Lord (voiced by the one and only Andy Samberg), so expect the unexpected.

Saints Row

Saints Row

Developer: Volition
Publisher: Koch Media
Release date: August 23, 2022

This is a reboot for the tongue-in-cheek Saints Row series, and we’re going all the way back to the beginning. Starting out in the city of Santo Ileso, it’ll be up to you how this crime gang takes shape, from how they build their empire to what they make their money doing. You’ll be leading them once again as the fully customizable Boss, and although it’s new faces and new names there’s plenty of the old Saints Row soul here. Just less of the dildobats.

TBC 2022

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection

Developer: Naughty Dog
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release date: Early 2022

Nathan Drake, Chloe, and Nadine are officially coming to the PS5. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves brings Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: Lost Legacy together in one upgraded remastered bundle in early 2022. With a Thief’s End seeing out Drake’s journey in the series in the jungles of Madagascar, and Lost Legacy offering another memorable adventure with Chloe and Nadine, Legacy of Thieves gives you the perfect excuse to experience them all over again, or jump in for the first time on Sony’s latest console.  

Stray

Stray

Developer: BlueTwelve Studio
Publisher: Annapurna Interactive
Release date: Early 2022

In this new adventure coming to the PS5 from BlueTwelve Studio, you play as a cat in a world filled with robots. As a cat exploring this strange world, you’ll gain a unique perspective from the eyes of a feline who can sneak under cars, traverse over rooftops and go about unnoticed. Viv, the game and creative director at the studio, said, “we are inspired every day by Murtaugh and Riggs, our two cats. Most of the team are cat owners as well, giving us all a lot of helpful first-hand references. Cats are always so playful, cute, and lovingly annoying that it’s an endless stream of gameplay ideas for us.”

Ghostwriter: Tokyo

Ghostwire Tokyo

Developer: Tango Gameworks
Publisher: Bethesda
Release date: TBC 2022

Ghostwriter: Tokyo has officially been confirmed to be coming to the PS5 in 2021, and we also saw some gameplay footage showing off the first-person combat. Set in Tokyo, Japan, Tango Gameworks takes you to the city which has been overrun by paranormal threats. Strange occult events have caused devastation, and the vast majority of the city’s population has mysteriously disappeared.  After you gain supernatural abilities of your own, it’s up to you to explore and fend off evil spirits. Said to take full advantage of the PS5’s hardware, Ghostwire Tokyo is set to deliver an immersive, supernatural experience.

Gotham Knights

Gotham Knights

Developer: WB Games Montreal
Publisher: Warner Bros
Release date: TBC 2022

The long-awaited WB Games Montreal title is Gotham Knights; an open-world, action RPG set in what the dev is calling the “most dynamic and interactive Gotham City yet”. The big story beat is that Batman is dead, leaving the Gotham Knights (Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Red Hood) to protect the city from its full roster of bad guys. This is a completely original story for the upcoming PS5 games list, rather than any kind of re-enactment of the comics. In terms of villains, we know that the Court of Owls is at least involved, but others including Mr. Freeze will also play a part in the game’s narrative. It features drop-in, drop-out co-op too, with the kind of gameplay you’d expect to see from a Batman: Arkham title. 

Marvel’s Midnight Suns

Marvel's Midnight Suns

Developer: Firaxis Games
Publisher: 2K Games
Release date: TBC 2022

Firaxis is bringing us a new strategy game but this time it’s not a new XCOM. Instead, we’re getting a Marvel-themed strategy game called Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Teaming up with 12 of Marvel Comics’ iconic heroes in the roster, you play as The Hunter, the very first customizable character in Marvel history. Together you’ll attempt to take down the Mother of Demons, Lillith, in an XCOM / Marvel fusion gameplay scenario. 

Goodbye Volcano High

Goodbye Volcano High

Developer: KO_OP
Release date: TBC 2022

The developers behind Goodbye Volcano High announced that the narrative direction of the story has had a reboot since we first saw the initial game reveal. Now pushed back to 2022 with a new team of writers, it’ll be exciting to see how the story shapes up. Described as a cinematic, choice-based experience with a non-binary protagonist called Fang and a lovely art style, Goodbye Volcano High looks like one to watch out for. 

Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Developer: Daedalic Entertainment
Publisher: Daedalic Entertainment
Release date: TBC 2022

We are all so intrigued to see what a game where you play as the dual-personalities of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will actually be like. And thankfully, that’s exactly what Daedalic Entertainment is going to give us. It’s been unveiled as one of the confirmed upcoming PS5 games and will arrive sometime in 2021 to let you play as Gollum. 

The creature starts out as a prisoner in Barad-dûr, a fortress in Mordor, but eventually, you will traverse more of Middle-Earth, with the developer promising “giant, persistent environments, each harboring several questlines and a range of friendly or unfriendly faces” in an interview with Edge Magazine in early 2020. During that interview, the game is also described as a “stealth-action-adventure with an intriguing dual-personality mechanic, gigantic levels, and a densely wrought aesthetic inspired by Tolkien’s own drawings”. 

A Plague Tale: Requiem

A Plague Tale: Requiem

Developer: Asobo Studio
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Release date: TBC 2022

The Flight Simulator studio, Asobo, is going back to its original series with a sequel – A Plague Tale: Requiem. The game will follow the original heroes Amicia and Hugo in their quest to survive in the rat-infested city and The Inquisition. With literal seas of rats featured in the game’s reveal trailer, we can only imagine that things have got a lot harder for our brother and sister duo. 

God of War Ragnarok 

God of War Ragnarok

Developer: Sony Santa Monica Studio
Publisher: Sony
Release date: TBC 2022

Ragnarok is coming. Yes, a new God of War game is happening and it’s set to land on the PS5 at some point in 2022. During the latest PlayStation September 2021 showcase, we got a proper look at Kratos’ upcoming return, and boy was it quite the trailer. Showing a slightly older Atreus, we got to see a host of different creatures, some helpings of combat, and some new characters we’ll meet. In a blog post, Santa Monica Studio revealed that the realms are harsher, and we’ll be able to test our fighting prowess against new creatures from Norse mythology. It was also revealed that Cory Barlog is not directing this time around, with Eric Williams taking up the helm.  

Tchia

Tchia

Developer: Awaceb
Publisher: Awaceb
Release date: TBC 2022

Tchia is a charming indie gem set to arrive on PS5 sometime in 2022. From developer Awaceb, the open-world tropical adventure is inspired by New Caledonia and includes some very interesting abilities – such as a soul jumping power that lets protagonist Tchia take control of objects and animals. During the PlayStation showcase, we got to see how you can become a dog and even a coconut as you explore the sandbox world. Along with free-climbing, and playing a tune on your ukulele, Tchia certainly looks like one to watch out for.

Open Roads

Open Roads

Developer: Fullbright
Publisher: Annapurna
Release date: TBC 2022

The latest title from Fullbright (Gone Home, Tacoma) is Open Roads. It follows a mother and daughter who set out on a road trip adventure to discover a series of abandoned family properties to discover a mystery and secrets about their own kin long buried. Like previous Fullbright games, there’s a big emphasis on interactive narrative, but this time we’ll be exploring multiple destinations and chilling in the car en route between them too.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Developer: Rocksteady
Publisher: Warner Bros
Release date: TBC 2022

Rocksteady is continuing its work on the Batman: Arkham series but taking a detour into Suicide Squad territory. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a brand new story, with 1-4 player co-op, an evil Superman, and four playable characters. These take the form of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark, all of which come with their own unique weapons, and the option to switch between them at any time. 

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

Developer: Massive Entertainment
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: TBC 2022

After years of silence, we now have a name, a trailer, and a vague release date for Ubisoft’s Avatar title. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is coming sometime in 2022 and is a standalone story from any of the movies. This first-person, action-adventure sees you play as a Na’vi and journey across the Western Frontier, which is a part of Pandora not seen before. You’ll have to use your surroundings and try to survive against the onslaught of RDA forces.

The Callisto Protocol

The Callisto Protocol

Developer: Striking Distance
Publisher: Krafton
Release date: TBC 2022

The spiritual successor to Dead Space in all but name, The Callisto Protocol is a fresh survival horror game coming from new studio Striking Distance, helmed by none other than Glen Schofield. Its aim is to deliver the most-terrifying next-gen horror experience ever, and from what we’ve seen so far of the game, it’s looking likely to deliver. Set on Jupiter’s moon in 2320, there’s a conspiracy to unfold and horrific creatures to face in this third-person story. A great addition to the upcoming PS5 games. 

Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy

Developer: Avalanche
Publisher: Warner Bros. Games
Status: In development
Release date: TBC 2022

Set before the events of the books in the 1800s at the famous Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry and the world beyond, Hogwarts Legacy is described as an open-world RPG that will take you on an adventure in the Harry Potter universe. Added to the list of upcoming PS5 games for 2022 after a delay, Adrian Ropp, head of Avalance, wrote in a blog post on PlayStation’s official website that the next-gen console will let create immersive experiences that will let “a player practically feel the terror of Inferi bearing down upon them” or “sense the ground rumbling beneath them as a heard of angry centaurs surrounds them”.  

Little Devil Inside

Little Devil Inside

Developer: Neostream Interactive
Release date: TBC 2022

Little Devil Inside first began life on Kickstarter back in 2015. Fast forward five years later and we see a debut trailer during the PS5 reveal stream with the news that it will be a timed exclusive. As an RPG with survival elements, Little Devil inside is set in the “Victorian-like” era in a semi-open world. The trailer showed off a whole host of monsters and also gave us brief glimpses of some of the combat elements and features. It was easily one of the biggest surprises of the recent showcase. 

TBC 2023

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

Marvel's Spider-Man 2

Developer: Insomniac Games  
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release date: TBC 2023

During the September 2021 PlayStation showcase, a surprise trailer dropped for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, coming exclusively to PS5 sometime in 2023. As a sequel that’s set to continue on the journey of both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, who could forget seeing another very familiar face. Yes, Venom is going to feature as the villain of the new web-slinging adventures. In a blog post, Sony and Insomniac also confirmed that there will be shiny new suits, new abilities, and a very human story at the heart of your superhero antics. 

Pragmata

Pragmata

Developer: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom
Status: In development
Release date: TBC 2023

Capcom revealed a mysterious new game called Pragmata that leaves more questions than it answers, but certainly piqued a lot of interest when it was added to the upcoming PS5 games list. Described as a “thought-provoking game”, the trailer shows someone in what looks like a spacesuit in a futuristic setting, where they encounter a young girl and holo-cat. While it won’t be coming until 2022, we’re certainly eager to learn more about this rather enigmatic adventure. 

TBC

Marvel’s Wolverine

Marvel's Wolverine

Developer: Insomniac
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release date: TBC

Undoubtedly one of the biggest surprises of the PlayStation September 2021 showcase came in the shape of those famous adamantium claws belonging to none other than Wolverine. Yes, a new standalone Wolverine game is currently in early development. While we’re light on details for the moment, we do know Brian Horton is Wolverine’s creative director and Cameron Christian is the game director. Horton was creative director on Spider-Man Miles Morales and has also worked on games such as Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Christian previously worked on Spider-Man and Spider-Man Miles Morales, as well as other titles such as Sunset Overdrive.  Insomniac revealed its goal is to “respect the DNA of what makes the character so popular, but also try to make it feel fresh” and reflect the studio’s spirit.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

Knights of the Old Republic Remake

Developer: Aspyr
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment and Lucasfilms Games
Release date: TBC

After many rumors began to circulate, the latest Sony showcase confirmed that a remaster of BioWare’s beloved Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is on the way and it’s coming to PS5. Aspyr and Sony Interactive Entertainment are working with Lucasfilm Games to rebuild the classic adventure, which promises to bring KOTOR to a new generation with “modern tech, features, visuals, and more, while maintaining the integrity of the story and characters” so many have come to love. 

Final Fantasy 16

Final Fantasy 16

Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Square Enix
Release date: TBC

Yes, Final Fantasy 16 has officially been confirmed and it’s set to be a PlayStation console exclusive that will come to the PS5. Produced by Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida and directed by Hiroshi Takai, the debut trailer was revealed during the most recent PS5 showcase, giving us our first proper look at the next installment. We don’t know too much about where it will take us just yet, but the trailer does mention how the “Crystals shaped our world.” More information is set to come in 2021. 

Season

Season

Developer: Scavengers Studio
Publisher: Scavengers Studio
Release date: TBC

Channeling almost Ghibli-esque vibes, Season is a game about riding around on a bicycle and discovering the world for the first time. You play as a young woman who’s lived in a secluded community, but for some reason is now able to explore, take photos, and make new memories. But, there’s not much time to do any of it in, as a mysterious cataclysm is about to engulf the world for good. But heck is a beautiful way to spend your last season.

Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones

Developer: MachineGames
Publisher: Lucasfilm Games / Bethesda
Release date: TBC

Bethesda studio MachineGames is working on a brand new Indiana Jones game, in conjunction with the newly established Lucasfilm Games. All we’ve had so far is a tiny teaser trailer, which is more matte painting than gameplay footage. But, from it, we’ve deduced that it’s probably set in Rome in 1937, which would place the game after Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Temple of Doom, and yet before The Last Crusade. It seems to involve ancient stone circles and standing stones, and potentially even a lost race of giant cyclops. Bethesda says we’ll be waiting a while for more info though – including 100% confirmation of whether it is on PS5, seeing as it’s a Bethesda game. 

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Developer: Hardsuit Labs
Publisher: Paradox Interactive
Release date: TBC

Looking for a game with a bit of extra bite? Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 puts you in the seedy underbelly of Seattle, which should suit you just fine as a vampire ready to test out your new fangs. Turned as an act of vampire terrorism during the ‘Mass Embrace’, you’ll soon get caught up in vampire faction politics, where you’re still just trying to deal with your new way of life. This is an RPG at its core too, filled with player choices, a strong narrative, and branching dialogue options too. 

Ubisoft’s open-world Star Wars game

open-world Star Wars game

Developer: Massive Entertainment
Publisher: Ubisoft / Lucasfilm Games
Release date: TBC

Another fresh title coming out of the new Lucasfilm Games is an open-world Star Wars title from Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment. We don’t know much about the game yet, as it’s clearly in the very early stages of development, but it will run on Massive’s custom Snowdrop Engine. We’re expecting it to be a photorealistic action-adventure with sprinklings of RPG elements, a la The Division, but obviously set in Star Wars lore. No platforms have officially been confirmed, but expect it to be released on PS5 whenever it does arrive.

Project 007

Project 007

Developer: IO Interactive
Publisher: IO Interactive
Release date: TBC

IO Interactive is gearing up to tell the origin story for James Bond in a brand new game currently titled Project 007. Although details are scarce, and an official name is yet to be revealed, what we do know is that it’s going to be an entirely original James Bond story – so not tied to the novels or films. Hakan Abrak, CEO of IO says that it is “the most ambitious game in the history of our studio”. Exciting times ahead. 

Elder Scrolls 6

Elder Scrolls 6

Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Publisher: Bethesda
Status: In development
Release date: TBC

Ah, the Elder Scrolls 6. The 37-second trailer blew the world’s mind at E3 2018. The game that we know nothing about beyond this same trailer, that is in development somewhere within Bethesda Game Studios along with Starfield. Because it is so far away from release, you can bet your bottom coin that it’s going to appear – at some point – on the PS5 (although hopefully not whatever the PS6 could be). 

Recompile

Developer: Phi Games
Status: In development
Release date: TBC

A classic example of indie devs making smart use of limited resources to make distinctive, beautiful environments, Recompile is an inventive platformer where you’ve got a pretty heavy task in front of you: hack your way through a virtual landscape, “bring about the first technological singularity,” and save humanity. In your way are all sorts of alien-looking creatures, which you can shoot down, rush into, or dash around stealthily. This one seems to draw from all sorts of different inspirations, from Nier: Automata to Journey, but with a look (and soundtrack) all its own.

Dead Space Remake

Dead Space Remake

Developer: Motive
Publisher: EA
Release date: TBC

Dead Space is coming back to haunt all our high marks with a brand new remake that’s being especially “rebuilt” for the PS5. With no loading screens, no microtransactions, and potentially content cut from the original game, this will be the best way to experience Dead Space yet. And with the team behind Star Wars: Squadrons and Star Wars: Battlefront 2 on the job, you know it’s going to look fantastic. 

Dragon Age 4

Dragon Age 4

Developer: BioWare
Publisher: EA
Release date: TBC

Although technically no platforms have been announced for Dragon Age 4 – or whatever the next Dragon Age is officially called – at this point it would seem odd not to think of it as an upcoming PS5 game. We may not have a release date yet, but at least we know that Solas and co are making a return at some point in the future. What we have seen is some glorious concept art and the confirmation that it will continue on from where Dragon Age: Inquisition left off. 

Project Oxygen

Project Oxygen

Developer: Far From Home
Publisher: Far From Home
Release date: TBC

New studio Far From Home is coming swinging out of the gates with an ambitious project that depicts a world devastated by climate change after humanity’s inaction. Project Oxygen sees the player descend into a now environmentally-hostile Earth inside an advanced zeppelin. There will be light combat, but it’s mostly about surviving through resource management, crafting, and puzzle-solving. The aircraft itself will also be key to your survival and could hold the answer to repairing the ecological damage done to Earth. The studio is made up of developers from Techland (Dying Light, Dead Island), The Farm 51 (Chernobylite), Bloober Team (Layers of Fear, Blair Witch), and Larian Studios (Divinity: Original Sin, Baldur’s Gate 3), so plenty of reputable talent is on board, making Project Oxygen even more enticing.

New Mass Effect

New Mass Effect

Developer: BioWare
Publisher: EA
Release date: TBC

It might be quite a way off the release, but that isn’t going to stop us from being ridiculously overexcited for a brand new Mass Effect game – aka Mass Effect 5. Seemingly picking up after the events of Mass Effect 3, we’ll be seeing some old faces return and some plot lines picked back up. Of course, the big question of whether Shepard will return remains, but we’re ready for everything.

Atomic Heart

Atomic Heart

Developer: Mundfish
Publisher: Mundfish
Release date: TBC

Horror fans should rejoice to hear that Mundfish is bringing Atomic Heart to next-gen consoles. The wild-looking sci-fi horror game only rears its grotesque head every so often, but when it does, the world collectively gasps with shock and intrigue. Its monsters are unforgettable, we’ve already seen a good range of unique alien weapons, and the story already has us asking more questions than we have answers. Atomic Heart looks incredibly ambitious for a smaller studio, and we can’t wait to see if it lands the jump on PS5.

Quantum Error

Quantum Error

Developer: TeamKill Media
Publisher: TeamKill Media
Release date: TBC

A multiple Future Games Show alum, Quantum Error is an upcoming next-gen sci-fi horror shooter coming to PS5 at an undisclosed date. With shades of Half-Life, Doom, and Dead Space, you’ll control a skilled fireman from a first-person perspective as you hack at and blast away deep space mutants. Watching the recent 4K PS5 trailer from the Future Games Show, you’d never believe a team of just four developers is working on Quantum Error.
