After launching in 2020, the PlayStation looks to have a brilliant 2021. New Horizon and God of the war the games should be released at the end of the year and in the next few months . But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot to play with already.
The biggest games to launch alongside the console were Demon’s Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Other than that, there are some great cross-platform games that have received the PS5 treatment. Note, however, that this listing does not include updated PS4 games, such as Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition.
Hitman 3 is the first big game of 2021 and it’s also a good game. To conclude the rebooted Hitman trilogy, which started with the eponymous title 2016, Hitman 3 received a 9/10 from CNET’s sister site GameSpot thanks to its excellent level design, improved story and replayability. This last attribute is the key. Hitman might be talking about assassinations, but it’s more of a puzzle game than an action game, and you’ll have to play each level over and over again to see all the creative ways Agent 47 can do without. bad peoples.
The game is available on PS4 and PS5, among other consoles, but the PS5 version offers 4K gameplay, 60fps and enhanced haptic feedback thanks to the DualSense controller.
Souls of the demon
One of the most striking trends of the past 10 years has been the rise of super difficult Game. Much of this is attributed to the success of Dark Souls, from FromSoftware, which hit the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011. But Dark Souls itself was a spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, a much-loved game by FromSoftware launched in 2009..
And now Demon’s Souls has a second life on the PlayStation 5, because it’s arguably the best game on the platform. He has a score of 92 on Metacritic, and got a 9 out of 10 from GameSpot. It’s been credited with faithfully remaking the 2009 classic, but upgrading it with better movement and modernizing it with graphics that show what the PS5 can do.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales

I don’t think I need to develop further.
Since Demon’s Souls and Miles Morales, the PS5 has seen a dearth of exclusives. Returnal’s post in late April changed that. It’s a game big on the budget and looking good, and it’s a great demo of what the PlayStation 5 can do graphically, to say the least. It’s roguelite, a genre that you’ll reset from the start every time you die, but with new skills. And you will die a lot. It’s a tough game that, but is sure to find worship as a result.
Astro Games Room
Without a handout, Astro’s game room is a glorified tech demo. Charitably speaking, this is a glorious tech demo.
Designed to show what the PlayStation 5’s Dual Sense controller can do, Astro’s Playroom comes free with the PlayStation 5. “Free tech demo” doesn’t scream “must-play”, but Astro’s Playroom was fine. welcomed to be filled with clever homage to previous PlayStation games and, more importantly, to be fun to play.
Astro’s Game Room makes no attempt to hide the fact that it’s an excuse to show you what a gamepad can do. But it does conjure up a world you’ll want to see and explore, according to GameSpot’s Mike Epstein.
A third-person action game concerned almost primarily with flow and movement, The Pathless is a joy to play every second that you have the controller in your hand.
It’s available on other platforms including the iPad, but I’d say it’s best to play on a current gen console like the PS5, where the visuals and frame rate reflect the smoothness of the game. game design.

Sackboy: a great adventure
LittleBigPlanet’s mascot is there to provide more substantial platforming than Astro’s pretty but short game room. Sackboy: a great adventure abandons the level creation that LittleBigPlanet was centered on and focuses entirely on the 3D platform. But it retains the colorful visuals and the charm.
No, it’s not a Mario-level platform game, but it’s fun accessible to anyone who owns a PlayStation 5.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
It’s far from exclusive to the PlayStation 5, but Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is arguably the biggest game on the console. I mean it literally: it’s a huge game. The main quest will take you over 50 hours to beat and there are plenty of other good Viking things to see on the side. The PS5 version makes raids in England smoother, with 4K gameplay at 60fps.
