Sony revealed launch windows for many new PS5 games during a CES presentation. A bit of fine print at the end of the video unveiled the expected timeframe for previously announced games like Ghostwire: Tokyo and Pragmata as well as several surprising reveals

Sony CES Launch PS5

Square Enix’s Project Athia is scheduled for a 2022 launch. Details on the game are still mostly unknown, but it’s being developed by the same team that was behind Final Fantasy XV.

Several high profile indie games appear in the fine print as well. Stray, a game about a cat that surprised fans during a Sony State of Play event, is coming in October 2021. Solar Ash, the latest game from the developers behind Hyper Light Drifter, is coming in June 2021. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is coming this March, while Little Devil Inside launches in July.

The video confirmed some big delays as well. The text notes that Capcom’s sci-fi game Pragmata is scheduled for 2023, despite originally being slated as a 2022 game.

Curiously, Ratchet & Clank: Drift Apart only receives a vague 2021 launch window in the text. In a similar bit of video fine print last year, Sony said the game was anticipated to launch in the first half of 2021. The change in language could indicate that the game is delayed.

In case Square Enix hasn’t made it clear enough over the last few years: Final Fantasy is changing. While the legendary RPG series had long been synonymous with traditional, turn-based combat and whimsical creatures, recent entries have signaled a slow-moving sea change aimed at transforming the franchise eventually. Games like Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy VII Remake have teased a new direction for the series, but Final Fantasy XVI fully rips the Band-Aid off.

PlayStation VR2’s best launch game isn’t the one you we’re expecting

With the PlayStation VR2 out now, all eyes are on Horizon Call of the Mountain. The action-adventure title is Sony’s first big exclusive for the platform, acting as its tentpole launch title. While it’s a must-buy for anyone picking up the device on day one, it's more successful as a strong technical showcase for the headset rather than as a fun game that stands on its own. If you’re looking for the latter, you’ll want to check out PSVR2’s real hidden weapon: Fantavision 202X.

Get these 6 PlayStation VR2 launch games to showcase its features
A side view of the PlayStation VR2, which sits on a wood table.

If you're planning on buying a PlayStation VR2 at launch, be prepared for an intimidating process as you decide which games to pick up first. Early adopters will have a lot of options to choose from, as Sony's latest headset will support over 40 games at launch. The bulk of those, though, are ports of preexisting VR games from the past few years. That makes it a little tricky to figure out which games actually showcase what the PSVR2 is capable of and which will feel like a dated experience that doesn't benefit from new tech.

To help guide you, we've spent time playing through a wide variety of launch titles, from classics like Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge all the way to Horizon Call of the Mountain. While there are plenty of games that we've enjoyed, including charmers like What the Bat? and Jurassic World Aftermath Collection, six games in particular act as great showcases for various PSVR2 features. Whether you're looking to test its power, Sense controllers, or audio options, you'll want to put these six games in your digital shopping cart.
