This year saw the release of the next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, which caused much excitement and joy. A number of games have already been announced for 2021 to feed the new machines. Today we take a look at the top 10 PS5 games in 2021!

As impressive and exciting as the new PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles are, one thing is still missing a bit: the games! While the PS5 had some fantastic exclusives with games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Demon's Souls, we've already played through them and want more! Good thing then that some exciting new releases have already been announced for 2021, which thankfully will soon replace 2020! Here comes the top 10 PS5 games in 2021!

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

  • Developer: Insomniac Games
  • Release date: first half of 2021

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, the new installment of Insomniac Games' jump-and-run shooter evergreen, is looking really fantastic so far! From the gameplay footage, you can immediately tell how well Rift Apart takes advantage of the PS5's technical capabilities. The graphics look fantastic, especially with all the particle and shader effects that give the action another good dose of visual candy. Plus, the great feature of being able to travel around between worlds with virtually no load times looks extremely impressive!

A concrete release date for the PS5 exclusive title has not yet been set, but it should still be released in the first half of 2021. Until then, enjoy this great gameplay demo!

Gran Turismo 7

  • Developer: Polyphony Digital
  • Release date: 2021

Gran Turismo is one of THE evergreens for Sony's PlayStation consoles. Therefore, it's clear that it can't be missing on the PS5 either. In every console generation, there is at least one great Gran Turismo game, and these are usually great racing simulators! However, these games also function particularly well to show off the power of the new console. Considering the enhanced graphics capabilities and haptic feedback of the controller, we're really looking forward to seeing what Polyphony Digital will get out of the PS5 with Gran Turismo 7. Unfortunately, we don't know exactly how long we'll have to wait: so far, only an unspecified 2021 has been set as the release date.

  • Developer: Arkane Studios
  • Release date: May 21, 2021

Deathloop, the new game from Arkane Studios looks EXTREMELY cool! The asynchronous multiplayer shooter not only shines stylistically but also seems to give players a range of completely different weapons and abilities, as you would expect from Arkane. The idea of giving players the ability to take each other out in a single-player game sounds super exciting. The PS5 exclusive title looks promising and we can't wait until May!

Ghostwire: Tokyo

  • Developer: Tango Gameworks
  • Release date: 2021

On to the next time-exclusive title for the PS5. Ghostwire: Tokyo is the next game from legendary game maker Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Resident Evil 4) and Tango Gameworks, who after The Evil Within 1 and 2 are now moving into slightly... wackier spheres. Unfortunately, there is no concrete release date here either, but the wait should certainly be worth it for this wild first-person shooter!

God of War: Ragnarok

  • Developer: SCE Santa Monica Studio
  • Release date: 2021

BOY! A new God of War? Yes, please! We were all excited for the God of War reboot on PS4 (2018), which not only showed Kratos in a different light but also introduced his young and surprisingly powerful son Atreus as a sidekick. The ending of God of War already promised so much for the future, and we hope God of War: Ragnarok can deliver.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits

  • Developer: Ember Lab
  • Release date: Q1 2021

This cuddly game, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, charmed our hearts at the PS5 showcase in June. It looks like a Pixar movie that's actually playable. It's scheduled for release in Q1, so we won't have to wait much longer for it!

  • Developer: Rockstar Games
  • Release date: second half of 2021

Ok, ok, ok... everyone has bought GTA V at least three times by now and it's a bit absurd that the game is now coming to the third console generation after seven years. Nevertheless, we are looking forward to the PS5 version, because it looks really great in terms of graphics and the game is still a lot of fun! We're sure PS5 users will sink tons of hours into GTA Online!

  • Developer: Housemarque
  • Release date: March 19, 2021

The new game from Housemarquee, Returnal, looks super cool. The studio, which is actually known for 2D shoot-'em-ups, ventures into the third dimension and onto the PS5 with this cool alien shooter that aims to combine impressive presentation and interesting storytelling with bombastic arcade gameplay. Spicy! We don't have to wait particularly long for Returnal for the PS5 either: the game is already scheduled for release on March 19!

Horizon: Forbidden West

  • Developer: Guerrilla Games
  • Release date: 2021

Horizon: Zero Dawn was one of the best games of its kind for the PS4: fantastic storytelling coupled with fun open-world gameplay and an incredibly beautiful and unique world complete with robot-dinosaurs had us completely hooked. Accordingly, we are eagerly awaiting the sequel, Horizon: Forbidden West for the PS5. Not much is known about it yet, but if it's nearly as good as the first part everyone will be happy. The release date is unclear, but it should be at some point next year.

  • Developer: BlueTwelve Studio
  • Release date: 2021

Finally, something totally cool and cute: Stray! What exactly this game is, we don't know yet. The announcement trailer showed the fantastic scenario: you play as a stray cat in a cyber city populated by robots. It actually looks pretty good! Maybe it's a matter of taste but we can't wait to see more of it.
