Thinking of getting a PlayStaion 5? Or perhaps you already have one. Either way, you’ll want to be aware of the exclusive games available on the platform so you know what it has in store for you. Given how expensive the PS5 is — costing $400 for the Digital Edition and $500 for the Standard Edition — it’s a good idea to be familiar with the system, and that includes its game lineup. Many times, a game lineup will be one of the deciding factors when choosing between multiple video game systems.
Even though the PS5 is only nine months old, there are a handful of exclusive games available to play on it right now. And of course, that list will grow over time, with exciting new PS5 games from many first-party Sony studios.
Here are all of the PS5 exclusive games you can play right now.
One of the best (and most popular) games on PS4 is Horizon Zero Dawn, so getting a sequel was expected. Its follow-up, Horizon Forbidden West, feels very much like an improved version of the original, with better visuals, enhanced traversal, and lots more to do. One of the greatest new mechanics is the ability to swim underwater, which leads to some interesting exploration sections in the game. Speaking of improved visuals, Forbidden West looks stunning on PS5, with some of the most realistic-looking character models in all of gaming. The gameplay loop has been nearly perfected, giving players a reason to explore the large world, find resources, and gain XP to become stronger. It’s yet another example of the strength of Sony’s first-party development teams.
