The PlayStation 5 has been out for a few years now, and while it is still one of the best-selling consoles out there, there are still many games that have yet to be released. The good news is that you can still play almost all of the PS4 games on your new PS5 with no issues whatsoever, thanks to the fact that it is backwards-compatible. But there are also plenty of games that have been made specifically for the new console. If you are on the lookout for new games to try, here is a list of some of the best playstation 5 games available right now.
This charming 3D platformer comes pre-installed on every PS5 and is the perfect showcase for the console’s next-gen capabilities. Not only does it look sumptuous with its crystalline 4K visuals, but it also uses the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback to great effect. From piloting gliders and climbing like monkeys to shooting ball guns in space and enjoying cheeky nods to PlayStation history, it’s a fun and satisfying experience from start to finish.
Whether you are a fan of the franchise or not, this remaster is a must-play game. It boasts a beautiful HDR graphics engine that makes the city and its characters look more realistic than ever, plus a host of other technical improvements such as faster load times and a wide range of community-created mods. It even features a number of exclusive perks that help to enhance the gameplay, including adaptive triggers and a fully immersive haptic feedback system.
While this may be a little bit of a spoiler, it is without a doubt the most immersive and compelling action-adventure you can play on PS5. In the story, you take on the role of Selene, an astronaut who crashes on a hostile planet that is in a time loop, with the only way to break the cycle being to find out what is happening. The slick visuals and eerie atmosphere of this game are truly jaw-dropping, with a reworked control system that makes it feel even more natural to use the DualSense controller’s features.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
It was probably inevitable that a Spider-Man game would be the first big blockbuster to be released on PlayStation 5. But what is really impressive is just how much Insomniac Games has managed to cram into this remaster, which is both a faithful upgrade of the original and a hugely entertaining entry in its own right. Its ray-traced lighting and silky smooth 60fps performance mode make it the best-looking superhero game on the console, while the powerful haptic feedback of the DualSense controller gives you an experience that feels completely authentic.
While this isn’t a technically advanced game, the sheer amount of content packed into it makes it an absolute must-play for fans of the franchise. This game offers a huge variety of levels and settings in a world that looks as stunning as it is vast and open, plus a story full of memorable characters. It also supports up to four player co-op, so you can bring along a friend and enjoy the ride together.
