UPDATE (9/16/20): Sony announced two more launch titles for the PS5 – DMC 5 and the PlayStation Plus Collection.

Sony's PlayStation 5 reveal stream featured dozens of upcoming next-gen titles, many of which will be exclusive to the PS5. Most of the trailers and teasers indicated a release window, and while most of the games promised to release sometime in 2021, we have a list of games that are now confirmed as launch titles for the PS5. This list includes games that come pre-loaded on the PS5 as well as games with a Holiday 2020 release. This list does not include games that will release for PS4 between now and the PS5 launch but have been confirmed playable on PS5, like Cyberpunk 2077. Here are all the games currently confirmed for the PS5 launch.

Astro's Playroom

Revealed during yesterday's livestream presentation, Astro's Playroom in the newest game to feature the adorable Astro bots from Playroom and Astro Bot Rescue Mission. Developed in house by SIE Japan, the Astro bot games are high-quality tech demonstrations that show off the capabilities of PlayStation hardware. While Playroom and and Rescue Mission showed of the capabilities of the PS4 camera and the PSVR, respectively, Astro's Playroom looks like a 3d platformer that will take full advantage of the new DualSense controller's functions. The game will come preinstalled on the PS5. Check out the trailer for Astro's Playroom below.


In the nebulous category of multi-generational live-service free-to-play, Fornite is the only game that has been confirmed as a launch title for the PS5. The PS4 launched with Warframe so it seems likely it will launch on PS5 as well, but nothing has been confirmed. Further, Call of Duty 2020 is confirmed to include Warzone as a free game mode, so it too will be available on next-gen consoles at launch. Other likely live-service games launching on PS5 include Apex Legends, Warframe, FFXVI, DC Universe Online, Elder Scrolls Online, Red Dead Online, Sea of Thieves, and Fallout 76.


Assassin's Creed Valhalla

The next Assassin's Creed was revealed during an Inside Xbox stream at the end of April. The first gameplay trailer was criticized for lacking actual gameplay. Since then, details about the story, characters, and map size have been revealedValhalla is releasing on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and Microsoft Windows this December.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales

One of the biggest surprises from the PS5 reveal was Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. A sequel to Insomniac's Marvel's Spider-Man, Miles Morales will center the Ultimate Universe Spider-Man and tell a story that takes place after the events of the first game.

While not confirmed, it would appear that Miles Morales is not a "true" sequel to Marvel's Spider-Man, but rather a standalone "similar in scope" to Uncharted: Lost Legacy or Dishonored: Death of the Outsider. 

NBA 2k21

The trailer for NBA 2K21 was introduced by Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pelicans. The trailer itself features an in-engine rendering of Zion practicing in an empty gym. NBA 2K21 is the first 2K sports game releasing on the PS5, with PGA Tour 2K21 releasing on current-gen this August and WWE 2k21 already canceled.


Outriders is a new looter-shooter from People Can Fly, the Polish developers known for Bulletstorm and Painkiller. The game was first revealed earlier this year and, though it wasn't featured in today's livestream, recently premiered a monthly livestream of their own to show off details about the game.

Outriders looks like a blend of Destiny and Anthem (in a good way) and will feature tons of collectible, customizable weapons and gear in a world overrun by mobs of terrifying monsters. It's currently scheduled to release this Holiday season on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.


Godfall is a soulslike developed by Borderlands' Gearbox Studios. It was the first PS5 game ever announced, though there's been very little information about the game since then. Today's trailer revealed quite a bit, including gameplay, setting, and some story elements.

Godfall takes place in a world call Aperion. You play as a warrior, the last of your kind, on a mission to kill the mad-god Macros. Players will collect and customize a variety of armor sets called Valorplates that provide incredible powers. Look for Godfall on PC and PS5 this holiday season.


It will only be available as a digital download – at least when it first releases – but fans of the series are no doubt thrilled to see this on the PS5 on launch day.

PlayStation Plus Collection

If you missed out on some of the best PS4 titles, the PlayStation Plus Collection has you covered. The collection includes Uncharted 4, Fallout 4, Infamous Second Son, Final Fantasy XV, and a whole lot more. The subscription plan is an upgrade to the current PlayStation Plus, and it looks to be a great rival to the Xbox Game Pass.
