Best upcoming PlayStation 5 games to keep an eye on

Here are our picks of the best games scheduled for PS5 (in release date order)…

Final Fantasy XVI

  • Available: 22 June 2023

Final Fantasy 16 has been teased for many a year but it’s finally almost with us. The launch trailer shows the return of some series’ favourites – Ifrit, Shiva, and the rest. We also like the reintroduction of a more fantasy theme, while the combat is certainly looking like it’s going to be epic.

Baldur’s Gate 3

  • Available: 31 August 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed the Stadia beta build of Baldur’s Gate 3 until the cloud gaming service was shut down. And so, we cannot wait for the RPG to hit PS5 so we can once again jump into the isometric D&D landscape.

Mortal Kombat 1

  • Available: 12 September 2023

The latter half of this year is looking great for beat-em-up fans, with Street Fighter 6 and, a few months later, the reboot of Mortal Kombat. Set in a “reborn” Mortal Kombat universe, the game promising all-new fighting mechanics and game modes. There will also be new fatalities. Now get over here!

Assassin’s Creed Mirage

  • Available: 12 October 2023

The next Assassin’s Creed game very much looks to be heading back to the series’ roots, with you playing Basim – a street thief who flees Baghdad to join the Hidden Ones. It’s all very Aladdin, but with more killings surely.

Lords of the Fallen

  • Available: 13 October 2023

Lords of the Fallen may sound familiar and that’s because it is. The Soulslike action-RPG borrows the name of CI Games’ 2014 hit but promises to be a completely new game for current-gen only.

Alan Wake 2

  • Available: 17 October 2023

After recently completing the excellent Alan Wake Remastered, we’re very much looking forward to Remedy’s follow-up. It’s looking a darn sight scarier though, with a new playable character in the guise of FBI agent, Saga Anderson.

Alone in the Dark

  • Available: 25 October 2023

The game that effectively launched the survival horror genre, and inspired the Resident Evil series, is back. Alone in the Dark is a complete reimagination of the original and stars Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) and David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Emily Hartwood and Edward Carnby respectively. You can choose between them to undertake the sinister adventure inspired by the books of HP Lovecraft.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

  • Available: 2023

A gameplay reveal was released on 25 May 2023 during the PlayStation Showcase event and had our jaws dropping to the floor. It shows Peter Parker in his symbiote suit, although we don’t yet know where he got it from (it turned up as part of Spider-Man’s venture into the Secret Wars in the comic books). Miles Morales also makes an appearance and we can see that you’ll switch between the two characters in the final game.

Helldivers 2

  • Available: 2023

Helldivers was a hardcore twin-stick shooter and its sequel, as announced during the PlayStation Showcase, will likely be the same. The trailer is a good giggle but doesn’t give much away about the gameplay yet, instead focusing on a Starship Troopers-style fake advert.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

  • Available: early 2024

Put back more times than a root canal appointment, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is now scheduled for early 2024 (possibly February). We’re hoping the four-player co-op action game lives up to its hype by then.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

  • Available: TBC

The remake of possibly the best Star Wars game around has been beset with issues – including rumours that original developer Aspyr has been replaced by Saber Interactive (World War Z, Evil Dead: The Game). That has lead many to believe that it could be delayed until 2025 at the earliest. Let’s hope it appears sooner than later though.

Star Wars Eclipse

  • Available: TBC

One Star Wars game that could beat the Knights of the Old Republic Remake to the punch is Star Wars Eclipse, which is coming from the studio behind Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, Quantic Dream. It’s early in development, but we expect it to be a similar choose-your-own-adventure-style affair with stunning visual effects.

Marvel’s Wolverine

  • Available: TBC

After finishing Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Insomniac’s next big game will also be a comic book property – this time starring Logan, the Wolverine himself. We don’t know much about gameplay yet, but the teaser trailer released in 2021 still has us wanting more.

Death Stranding 2

  • Available: TBC

Not expected for a long old while, the fact that Kojima is working on Death Stranding 2 is enough for us for now. Expect it to make about as much sense as the first game, but still be as addictive and beautiful.

Silent Hill 2

  • Available: TBC

Horror game specialist Bloober Team is remaking one of the best and spookiest action-adventures around. Even with the roughest of graphics, the original made us jump out of our skins – heaven knows what’ll happen with PS5-standard visuals.

Ghostrunner 2

  • Available: TBC

Another cult hit to get a sequel this year is Ghostrunner 2. It once again promises some tight, neat cyberpunk action with some excellent first-person sword fighting mechanics.


  • Available: TBC

Although a great surprise during the PlayStation Showcase in May 2023, Marathon has been a Bungie property since the mid-90s – with a first-person shooter originally developed for the Mac in 1994. This will represent a reboot, therefore, and will be the first game made by the now PlayStation-owned studio, other than Destiny and Destiny 2, for many years.

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater

  • Available: TBC

Essentially a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3, Delta: Snake Eater is still in development, so we don’t really know that much about the game yet. Still exciting though.

Wonder Woman

  • Available: TBC

Although it was announced a fair while ago, Warner Bros Games is yet to reveal more details on its Wonder Woman game. We await additional details with bated breath.

Dragon’s Dogma 2

  • Available: TBC

Capcom is working on a sequel to its much-loved action-RPG a mere 11 years after the original was released. It certainly looks the part and will be huge if the trailer shown during the PlayStation Showcase is anything to go by.

Sword of the Sea

  • Available: TBC

You only need to look at the trailer for a few seconds to realise that Sword of the Sea is the next game from the mind behind Abzu, The Pathless and, specifically, Journey. It promises to be a visual feast, that’s for sure.

Phantom Blade Zero

  • Available: TBC

Action RPGs look to be the order of the day, with Phantom Blade 0 (or Zero) another to debut during the PlayStation Showcase event in May 2023. It promises fast paced combat in the steam punk style setting, with a real focus on martial arts.


  • Available: TBC

Looking like a cross between Splatoon on the Nintendo Switch and something Insomniac would cook up, Foamstars could be a lot of fun. You basically shoot foam that you manipulate and ride on for, we think, multiplayer skirmishes.

We will update this round-up regularly, adding new games all the while. Please bookmark this page and come back to see more soon. In the meantime, why don’t you check out our feature on the PlayStation Plus tiers and all the games you can download as part of a PS Plus Extra or Premium subscription.
