The PS5 Exclusive Games List: What's on Tap for Sony's New PlayStation

Watch the trailers for all the exclusive games coming to PS5

Playstation 5 should be on the shelves for the 2020 holiday season; here's an alphabetical look at which games you will be able to play on it once it arrives.

Not all titles are confirmed to be available as soon as the PS5 launches; just that they will be available for the console at some point.

Some titles will be completely exclusive to the PS5 while others will only be exclusive (timed) for a short time. Any unconfirmed titles indicate that information is unclear at this time about whether or not the games will be available on rival Xbox Series X.

Astro's Playroom (Full exclusive)

Exclusive to PS5, this demo controller game comes pre-loaded with the console. This game is a sequel to Astro Bot Rescue Mission. Designed to showcase the new Dual-Sense controller for PS5, you can explore the different haptic sensations as Astro runs, bounces, and even struggles through sand. It's not amazing but it is a fun 3D way to get used to the new controller's capabilities.

Bugsnax (Timed exclusive)

Love Animal Crossing? Get ready to love Bugsnax, where you'll play primarily as bipedal animals that turn into the snack foods they eat. Sounds fun and whimsical but when you realize that the bugsnax you're trying to eat were once people too, it gives this family-friendly game a bit of a psychological horror twist.

Deathloop (Unconfirmed exclusive)

Fans of the TV show Lost or the movie Groundhog Day will find an eerily similar type of premise in Deathloop, which takes place on a chaotic island where you are trapped in a timeloop. Add in a '70s flair and you'll find yourself shooting down targets, fending off assassins, and feeling like Quentin Tarantino has got to be hiding around the corner somewhere.

Destruction AllStars (Full exclusive)

Racing fans! Tired of the same old racing games? Then be transported into the wild world of racing where, if Fortnite, Twisted Metal and Rocket League had a baby together, this is the wide-eyed animated result.

Ghostwire (Unconfirmed exclusive)

Tokyo has been overrun by deadly supernatural forces and you're among the 1 percent of survivors left to fight the paranormal threat. Untangle the mystery behind the mass disappearance and find some fresh new fun in the dopest game this side of Onmyōdō.

Godfall (Timed exclusive)

Five weapon classes, lots of looting and slashing off heads, and the knowledge that you are the last of the Valorian knights with legendary armor. Director Keith Lee merged looting with third-person melee combat for skill-based, nonstop action. Mastering combat is a big part of this satisfying experience but finding loot, as always, has its own unique rewards.

Goodbye Volcano High (Timed exclusive)

Combine a Netflix teen dinosaur drama with anime gaming action and you've got Goodbye Volcano High, where you'll guide Fan through their final year of high school. There are tons of minigames inside to illustrate changing circumstances, love, and life connections.

Gran Turismo 7 (Full exclusive)

Welcome home, Gran Turismo fans. Racing enthusiasts will not be disappointed with this eighth installment in the series, rumored to include VR.

Little Devil Inside (Timed exclusive)

If dreamy and artistic is your aesthetic, try this quirky game on for size. Originally a Kickstarter campaign that wrestled its way into Sony's heart, the game centers on a world filled with atmospheric contrasts, hostile missions, and challenging survival journeys. There's no better 'little engine that could' game out there.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (Full exclusive)

If a single game could take Sony over the edge in terms of console sales against the Xbox, this is it. Move over, Peter Parker, and make room for Miles as he comes of age and takes on a crime syndicate in a David vs Goliath story arguably more compelling than the original Spiderman. Stop taking all our money, Sony!

Oddworld: Soulstorm (Timed exclusive)

Abe from Oddworld is back and the fate of an entire people is up to you! This continuation of 2014's Oddworld is also a re-imagining of Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus.

Stray (Timed exclusive)

Meow! Cat-lovers will be unable to resist this game, which features an adventurous feline who must untangle an ancient mystery to find its way home.
