Which Playstation 5 games for the end of the year? Our buying guide

Do you plan to buy a Playstation 5 but do not yet know which games to crack? We take stock of the PS5 launch offer.

We do not judge a console by what it has in the chassis but by the game that we can slip into its disc tray or its hard drive. At the end of the year, the launch of the Playstation 5 is accompanied by many games which, although they are not necessarily exclusive to the machine for the most part, offer a catalog that is already worthy of interest. even from the day of the release of the PS5. In this article, we invite you to come back to the exclusive Playstation games, the games of third-party publishers but also the next games that will arrive on the Sony console. And there is a bunch of them.

We had the opportunity to test games exclusive to the Sony console for its launch on the French market. It is clear that these demonstrate the consoler’s intentions for this new generation: constant framerate, impressive graphics quality, all with almost non-existent loading times. All in all, if it is of course too early to pass an overall judgment on the console which will also have to stand the test of time, the Playstation 5 now offers an optimal gaming experience.

Marvel’s Spider-Man : Miles Morales (exclu PS5 et PS4)

Spin-off of the excellent Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games released in 2018 on Playstation 4, Miles Morales offers himself a great appearance here on both PS4 and Playstation 5. On the next-generation console, the game offers 4K performance at 60 frames per second that offers an exhilarating experience to swing between New York skyscrapers to rescue the widow and the orphan while trying to thwart an industrial plot. Very similar to its predecessor in its construction and in its proposal, Spider-Man: Miles Morales will appeal to all those who had already enjoyed the original episode, provided they have not been bored by its formula, repeated here almost in the same despite some gameplay additions related to Miles’ personal skills. Always so mastered, the proposal of Insomniac Games is here sublimated by the capabilities of the Playstation 5.

Astro’s Playroom (exclu PS5)

Astro, the little robot from the Asobi team, returns to Playstation 5 after having fun in the PS4 Playroom and amazed us on Playstation VR. In Astro’s Playroom, which all PS5 buyers will find free installed in their machine, we are invited to explore a platform game divided into sixteen levels spread over four imaginary worlds located in the belly of the Playstation 5. We will explore the meadow there. RAM, the GPU jungle or even the SSD circuit, a smile on the lips for several reasons. First of all, because Astro is adorably well animated and pleasant to handle. Secondly, because the new controller, now called DualSense, finds in Astro’s Playroom a perfect standard of its capabilities, often stunning in terms of its adaptive triggers and its vibrations which evolve according to the situations. Finally, because the game intends to make us relive, through numerous references, more than 25 years of the history of the Playstation brand. Perfect to go with the family, but also for nostalgic players. Much more than a technical demo, Astro’s Playroom is a must have. Do not miss it.

Demon’s Souls (exclu PS5)

At the origins of the successful formula of the studio From Software (to which we owe Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro), there is Demon’s Souls, a game which celebrated its eleven years last February. With him was born the genre of “souls-like”, those games that challenge the player to overcome their difficulty, sometimes frustrating, to triumph. For the launch of its Playstation 5, Sony commissioned the masters of the remake and the remaster, BluePoint Games, to offer Demon’s Souls an absolutely sublime reissue, all with scrupulous respect for what made the salt of this beloved game. Demon’s Souls Remake is aimed at seasoned players, who probably already know it by heart, but who will rediscover it here in a 4K setting that has very clearly enough to make their jaws drop at times.

Sackboy : A Big Adventure (exclu PS5 et PS4)

Since 2008 and his arrival on PS3 with Little Big Planet, Sackboy has come a long way! He arrives on Playstation 5 with a Big Adventure which this time is not focused on the creation and sharing of levels made by players. This is a rather classic platform game in which Sony‘s little mascot will go through levels built to be explored together, on the same console or online (online multiplayer mode will arrive in a future update at the end year). A little less fun when you are alone at the controller, Sackboy: A Big Adventure will find all its meaning in families who can share the discovery of the game mechanics with others.

If exclusives are a good way to attract potential buyers, the Playstation 5 also gives pride of place to games from third-party publishers which, once again, are numerous to accompany the launch of the console. Here is a selection that is varied to represent the different genres available from the arrival of the PS5 in France.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
