A new console generation begins. Here’s a quick rundown on the first week of new PlayStation Store releases to include games for the PS5.
We reported on the Xbox Series X launch lineup at the weekend. So how does the first week of the PlayStation 5 compare? As with much about the new console generation, it’s hard to take a firm view without making a few caveats. But, at first blush, the PS5 is stronger out of the gate.
Having a sparkling version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales doesn’t hurt, nor does a beautiful remaster of Demon’s Souls. Add in a host of existing games to get next-gen updates – No Man’s Sky is the one we’re most keen to try – and there’s plenty for new PS5 owners to play. And that’s not to mention the excellent Astro’s Playroom pack-in, or the arrival of Bugsnax as a free PlayStation Plus game.
PlayStation 4 owners are also well catered for in a week full of AAA blockbusters. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Fuser, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, Yakuza: Like a Dragon… the list goes on and on. Even handball fans have reason to be cheerful.
Here’s the current – but ever-changing – list of new PS4 and PS5 releases. We’ll keep this list updated throughout the week.
