Summary List Placement
Sony’s PlayStation 5 is the fastest-selling video game console on the market, enticing millions of gamers to upgrade their machines for the next-generation of blockbuster releases. PlayStation’s large library of exclusive games play a major role in the brand’s lasting popularity, with hits like “The Last of Us,” “God of War,” and “Marvel’s Spider-Man” breaking sales records and earning game of the year honors.
Sony says it’s working on at least 25 upcoming PS5 exclusives, many of which will also work on PS4. That’s good news, since the high demand for the PS5 is expected to outmatch supply for most of 2021. Players who grab games like “Horizon Forbidden West” on PS4 will be able to play an even better version for free whenever they upgrade to PS5.
Just a handful of PS5 games, like “Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart” and “Demon’s Souls,” are unavailable on the PS4 due to their technical demands.
Below we’ve compiled a list of upcoming games you need a PlayStation console to play, excluding games that are also available on PC or Xbox consoles.
‘Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart’ – available now
Release date: June 11, 2021
Console: PS5 only
Genre: Single-player action-adventure
“Ratchet and Clank” has been a PlayStation exclusive series since 2002, and “Rift Apart” is the first new entry since 2016, when the series was rebooted and adapted into a movie.
Ratchet and his robotic sidekick Clank have invented a wide range of weapons and gadgets to battle the evil Dr. Nefarious and his cronies. In “Rift Apart” Ratchet travels through space and time to stop Nefarious from tearing the universe apart, using a mix of platforming and run-and-gun skills to progress through each new world.
As a true PlayStation 5 exclusive, “Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart” makes use of the PS5’s speedy loading times to let Ratchet quickly slide between worlds, and will incorporate ray tracing for enhanced reflections and lighting. The game also adds a new playable character to the series named Rivet, who hails from another dimension.

“Final Fantasy VII Remake” has been design from the ground up with a new combat system and some of the most impressive graphics we’ve seen to date. However, “Remake” only contains about one third of the original “Final Fantasy VII” story, so sequels are on the way.
