The PlayStation 5 has just been revealed during their recent livestream and along with it, a slew of games joining us in the wait for the official store release. While a few games have already announced that they will have a presence on the PS5, this list joined the official PS5 reveal. Expect more games to be announced in the coming days and months.
Headlining the games during the livestream was Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online due to Sony’s partnership with Rockstar Games. Enhanced and expanded versions of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online will launch on PS5 in the second half of 2021. In addition, a new standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online will also be made available, with access to all PS5 owners for free within the first three months of the title launching. Once the entitlement is claimed, the game is theirs to keep, and with a PlayStation Plus membership, PS5 owners will be able to play GTA Online as much as they want. Finally, starting today, all GTAV PS4 owners will get GTA$1,000,000 every month until the PS5 version of the game launches in 2021.
Additionally, Sony and the industry’s top publishers and developers unveiled a lineup of PS5 titles that demonstrate a depth and breadth of unique experiences. Some of the first-party PlayStation Studios exclusives included: Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales (Insomniac Games), Gran Turismo 7 (Polyphony Digital), and Horizon Forbidden West (Guerrilla Games).
Reveals from third-party publishers included blockbuster franchises such as NBA 2K21 (2K, Visual Concepts) and RESIDENT EVIL VILLAGE (Capcom), as well as brand new IP launching on PS5 as console exclusives, such as DEATHLOOP (Bethesda) and Project Athia (Square Enix/Luminous Productions). New titles from independent developers, such as Stray (Annapurna/ Blue Twelve Studio) and Bugsnax (Young Horses), demonstrated the diversity of content coming to the platform.
