2020 marks the year that we will see the PlayStation 5 hit the market. It will now take until November for the new console platform to be released. That means 2021 will be the year for major next-gen video game titles to be released that will take advantage of the power and features of the PlayStation 5. If you picked up PlayStation 5 in 2020 or are planning to buy it in 2021, here are some of the highly anticipated PlayStation 5 video games coming to the platform.
Hades – PlayStation 5 video games
Ever since Supergiant Games introduced their debut game Bastion, the studio has consistently released hits. Bastion was a huge success, and their previous works include Transistor and Pyre. Now their latest release is Hades. This is a lifelike dungeon crawler that places the player in the shoes of Zagreus, son of Hades.
Finding a way out of the underworld and to his new home on Mount Olympus, our protagonist has a long, difficult road ahead of him. Players will have to fight Hade’s minions trying to stop Zagreus from leaving. While you’ll be fighting these monsters as you progress, most will die a bit. After you die, you’ll start from scratch, but as you unlock new weapons and abilities, Zagreus will have an easier time moving deeper into his escape.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade
It took fans years to convince Square Enix to remake Final Fantasy 7, but it’s finally arrived. The remake right now is just part of the original game. Since the studio is breaking the remake of Final Fantasy 7 into several parts, it could be a long time before we get the full experience. Outside of the base game, there’s also Final Fantasy 7 Remake Integrade.
This is an enhanced version of the remake for PlayStation 5 video games and comes with it a movie based on Yuffie as the main character. It’s a whole new adventure for players to go through, but this is the version to get if you’re using PlayStation 5.
Remember we’re working on the seasons here and we’re still waiting when they come. We received the second part for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. But with this edition, you get the first part of the remake along with another campaign featuring Yuffie.
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut
Disco Elysium is an already available game. It first launched in 2019, where it puts players in the role of a detective who wakes up with a bad hangover and no memory of the night before. We soon find out that a murder case needs to be solved. It is here that our journey begins, where we find out what happened and perhaps a chance at the redemption of our lucky hero.
It is a top-down role-playing game where players roam the world. Meeting NPCs, doing quests, participating in chats, earning experience points, and unlocking more skills to assist you during the game. As such a huge hit, we have a new release with The Final Cut. With this version, we get the full voice work for all the characters, along with some new missions that were cut from the first release.
Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut
Ghost of Tsushima, released in 2020, is an action-adventure game that puts the player in the role of a samurai. You may have seen this game already, as it was an even bigger hit in 2020. This year, however, it’s worth pointing out Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut. This one of the PlayStation 5 video games comes with the base game along with all previous DLC.
It also comes with new updates to the game, so you can expect features like better lip-syncing for Japanese dubbing. DualSense properties are also added, which will use PlayStation 5 controller-specific features like haptic feedback. The biggest reason to choose this game over the base title was the extra plot content based on Iki Island. This is a nearby island that was also invaded, giving our protagonist another area to fend off enemies.
Far Cry 6 – PlayStation 5 video games
The next main installment of the Far Cry franchise is coming this year. Far Cry 6 will put players on a fictional Caribbean island called Yara. A powerful dictatorship controls Yara, with El Presidente Anton Castillo in control.
So far, we know that the game will follow Anton Castillo as he teaches his son the importance of keeping a firm hand and gripping the nation as chaos rages. Meanwhile, the player will take on the role of a guerrilla fighter who is plotting to overthrow the regime and return the Yara nation to a peaceful state.
Far Cry 6 will be the most extensive map in the franchise. We’re sure there will be some NPCs meeting and doing quests. Likewise, there are sure to be plenty of options to go around the map when the need arises.
