PS5 launch games: All the Playstation 5 titles you can play on November 12th

The next-generation consoles are less than a month away from release and although you’ll be able to upgrade the majority of your PS4 games to the PS5, you’re probably wondering which new titles will be available for the Playstation 5’s November 12th launch. The following is a list of all the PS5 launch games from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to Watch Dogs Legion.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will put players in the goatskin boots of Eivor and feature intense bouts of raiding, pillaging, sailing as well as an intricate combat system boasting the most enemies ever seen in an Assassin’s Creed game. Sound the horn!

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5

Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be swinging onto the Playstation 5 as one of its exclusive PS5 launch games. Miles Morales exhibits a vast array of powers which distinguish him from the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man, such as the ability to camouflage himself and the Venom Blasts, a powerful, bio-electric emanation, so this Spider-Man game will be a vastly different experience. In addition, Spider-Man: Miles Morales will feature all-new villains, locales and even Peter Parker as Miles’ mentor.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

True, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War releases the day after Playstation 5’s launch, but it’ll be available as a PS5 launch game in Europe and the Treyarch and Raven Software developed, Activision published first-person military shooter series is so iconic at this point we’d be remiss not to include it.

Borderlands 3, the award-winning, action roleplaying first-person shooter brings all its mayhem-fueled, shooting-looting furor to the Playstation 5 in glorious 4K resolution and 60 frames-per-second frequency. Developer Gearbox will also be instituting a new game mode, four player split screen co-op play and expanded skill trees for all characters. Best of all: if you already own Borderlands 3 on the PS4 the upgrade to the PS5 is free.

NBA 2K21

NBA 2K21 PS5 Stephen Curry

Astro’s Playroom

Astro's Playroom PS5

Astro’s Playroom is a 3D platformer which will come pre-loaded onto every PS5 console, no download necessary.

Bugsnax

Bugsnax PS5

Indie vide game development studio Young Horses is bringing this action adventure game to PS5 launch day; Bugsnax revolves around a mysterious island inhabited by the titular “half-bug, half-snack creatures.” Hope you’re hungry, PS5 gamers — they say bugs are a good source of protein, don’t they?

Fortnite

Fortnite

The battle royale phenomenon that is Epic Games’ Fortnite is a no-brainer as a PS5 launch game; even though migrating progress, unlocks, Fortnite skins from PS4 to the PS5 (as well as optimized, upgraded play) are appealing options — even more impressive is the fact that Epic asserts the Unreal 4 engine on which the game is built will transition to the Unreal 5 engine sometime next year.

Maneater

Maneater PS5

Fan of the Jaws movies and/or Shark Week but would rather put yourself in the cartilaginous body of nature’s oldest killing machine than some scuba diver with a spear gun? Maneater is the game for you and it will be available with a 4K, 60 FPS upgrade on Playstation 5 launch day.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered

Marvel's Spider-Man

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered won’t be available as a free upgrade on the PS5 — the only way to obtain it is to buy the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition and unlock it from there. As of this writing Sony has no plans to release Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered in standalone form.

Observer: System Redux

Observer Redux PS5

Observer: System Redux is a PS5 remastered version of Observer, a 2017 psychological horror game developed by Bloober Team and set in Krakow, Poland. The game stars Rutger Hauer as a Krakowian detective who can hack other people’s brain implants with a device known as the Dream Eater as a means of interrogating them. If you haven’t played it before, this game is trippy, unnerving and leaves one hell of a lasting impression with its foreboding atmosphere.

Watchdogs: Legion

Watch Dogs Legion PS5

This Ubisoft sandbox action-adventure game is set in a neo-London with a premise that sees players taking on the role of a wide range of characters that are part of a hacker group, DeSec, set on liberating the city of London from its dystopian surveillance state.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
