PS5: all games available for release and backward compatibility

PS5: all games available for release and backward compatibility
While we can still probably expect a few announcements from the publisher side in the coming weeks, the catalog for the PlayStation 5 is gradually filling up and we should be fixed on launch games soon. At the moment, more than a hundred titles have confirmed their presence on Sony's next console, you can find the complete list a little further down.

The complete list of games PS5

The PS5 games presented in June and September 2020 The presentation of the games of the PS5 in early June 2020 allowed us to discover several major titles that will appear on it. If Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available at launch, on November 19, 2020, most of the expected games either had no date or a launch window for 2021 or even 2022. Resident Evil Village will arrive in January 2021. , while conversely, the all new Pragmata is currently not expected before 2022.

One of the stars of this presentation was none other than Horizon II: Forbidden West, the highly anticipated sequel to Horizon: Zero Dawn which does not yet have a precise launch date, but is currently expected in 2021. This new episode takes us to the Californian coast and will be the opportunity for Aloy to confront each other to new mechanical creatures, on land, but also under water, a novelty of this opus compared to the previous one.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has also made a strong impression for its technical strengths, not hesitating to shower us with visual effects of all kinds to demonstrate the capabilities of the future Sony console. It is also probably the title that amazed us the most on this point during the evening. Others such as Gran Turismo 7 or the more fleeting Project Athia have also stood out. You can find them in our long list of games officialized a little below, but also in our summary article of the presentation of the games of the PlayStation 5 of June 2020, accessible below:

PS5: Design, games, summary of Sony's event on 12/06/2020 For its second conference in September 2020, Sony has this time left room for third-party publishers and started strong with Final Fantasy XVI, which will obviously not be exclusive to the console, but whose release on other platforms is not yet official. No release date has yet been unveiled for the new episode of Square Enix's flagship license. The new title set in the universe of the Harry Potter saga, Hogwarts Legacy: Hogwarts Legacy also took advantage of the evening to finally show itself officially with a launch window set for 2021.

Among the few games already known which took the opportunity to recall their presence on the future Sony machine, we will note the presence of a Demon's Souls which will be part of the launch line-up, just like Fortnite which will also benefit from the Ray Tracing to show off at its best. Finally, the highlight of the show was the announcement for 2021 of a sequel to the adventures of Kratos: God of War Ragnarok. Note, however, that this is not the final name of the game, a sign that we will probably have to wait a little while before hearing about it again.

Despite all these great announcements, we need however, point out that contrary to what had been mentioned a few months ago, a large part of the games presented for the moment should also be released on PS4. This will be particularly the case of Spider-Man: Miles Morales or even Horizon Forbidden West, while a blur still remains on Final Fantasy XVI and the next God of War. At the moment, very few titles purely exclusive to the PS5 have been announced: this is notably the case of Demon's Souls.

Similarly, it is important to specify that the "First party" games , ie developed by studios belonging to Sony will be sold at a recommended retail price of € 79.99, higher than that of PS4 games therefore (€ 69.99). Even if the games in question should be found at lower prices if you are on the lookout for good deals, this price increase should be noted.

We know at least the 5 games from Sony studios that will be available for on launch day:

Astro's Playroom Demon's Souls Destruction All Stars Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (Classic or Ultimate version) Sackboy A Big Adventure For those who wish, our summary of the second presentation conference PS5 games is available below:

Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Godfall or Dying Light 2 already announced

Among the titles officially announced on PlayStation 5, we also find Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Dying Light 2 or The Lords of the Rings: Gollum which will also be available on the consoles of the current generation, as well as a certain Godfall, expected on PC but which is currently exclusive to the PS5 in the console ecosystem.

In addition to the official announcements, we can expect that some titles expected for the end of the year or the beginning of the next one also benefits from a port on PS5. This will be notably the case of FIFA 21, but also Watch Dogs Legion on the Ubisoft side, or the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt.

PS5 and backward compatibility

The PlayStation 5 will benefit from a backward compatibility system which according to claims by Jim Ryan (CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment), would make that 99% of PS4 games could be played on PS5. You would therefore not have to buy a version here, or even wait for a remaster or a remake for almost all of your PS4 game library. The Last of Us Part II will benefit from this backward compatibility, as announced a few months ago Jim Ryan (president of Sony Interactive Entertainment). The latter has also officially confirmed that PS1, PS2 and PS3 games cannot be played by your PS5 and therefore would not be affected by this backward compatibility.

There is no complete list of games affected by backwards compatibility, although based on Jim Ryan's statements, it will probably be easier to make a list of PS4 games that will not work with the PS5. We already knew a few months ago that Sony was "doing everything possible to ensure full backward compatibility", but that it was initially a question of a catalog of a hundred backward compatible games at launch. It will in fact be much more since for the time being, Sony has started to communicate on incompatible games, and if the first list is to evolve, it only contains ten PS4 games not compatible with the PS5 for the time being: DWVR, Afro Samurai 2: La Revenge de Kuma, TT Isle of Man - Ride on the Edge 2, Just Deal With It !, Shadow Complex Remastered, Robinson: The Journey, We Sing, Hitman GO Definitive Edition, Shadwen, Joe's Diner. To help players find their way around, PlayStation Store is now offering the words "Playable on PS4 only" to indicate games that are not compatible with the PS5.

From a document sent by Sony to their future developer partners, the creators of PS4 titles submitting their game for certification from July 13, 2020 must imperatively make them compatible with the PlayStation 5. Among large third-party publishers, CD Projekt has already announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will receive an update allowing the PS4 version to run on PS5. Logically, we could also expect that the major exclusives of the PS4 (God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn or Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, potentially) as well as some of the most played titles like Fortnite benefit from the same treatment, which was partially confirmed by the presentation of the PlayStation Plus Collection during the Sony conference on September 16.

PlayStation Plus Collection, games offered at launch for PS Plus subscribers PlayStation subscribers Plus will be able to download certain large PS4 games at no additional cost as soon as their PS5 is launched, and play them on it. However, Sony did not say whether the affected games would benefit from technical and visual improvements or whether they would be classic PS4 versions. Here is the list of games affected by this offer:

God of War Persona 5 Bloodborne inFAMOUS: Second Son Days Gone Detroit: Become Human The Last of Us Remastered Uncharted 4: A Thief's End The Last Guardian Ratchet & Clank Monster Hunter World Fallout 4 Resident Evil VII Battlefield 1 Mortal Kombat X Final Fantasy XV Batman Arkham Knight Until Dawn Video presentation of the PlayStation Plus Collection

Loading the video It should also be noted that several games will also benefit from a simple program offering an alternative to the backward compatibility system and allowing their owners to obtain a free PS5 version of a game if they already have its equivalent on PS4. This is notably the case of FIFA 21, Madden NFL 21 or Destiny 2.

The first PS5 gameplay videos on Astro's Playroom As soon as it arrived on our premises, the PS5 was directly used to test the game directly integrated with the console: Astro's Playroom. You can therefore find below 2 gameplay videos of the successor to the excellent Astro Bot Rescue Mission released at the time on PS4.
