Bluepoint Games stunningly jaw-dropping remake of Demon’s Souls has been confirmed as a PS5 launch title – and we couldn’t be happier.

Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Destruction AllStars

Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
A direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fulfills the prophecy of a Call of Duty title being at the launch of a new console. Boasting the biggest campaign to date with a range of non-linear levels and brand new Zombies modes, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War makes an emphatic statement on PS5 – supporting 4K visuals at 60 frames per second, in addition to a 120 FPS mode as well. Oh, and it also supports ray tracing too.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Watch Dogs: Legion
The third entry in Ubisoft’s open world tech-hacker adventure series, Watch Dogs: Legion goes full cyberpunk and embraces a glittering near-future London setting where players must recruit agents from every corner of society – from former SAS officers to angry old ladies, in order to overthrow a corrupt regime. Watch Dogs: Legion on PS5 will boast a massive visual leap over the PS4 version of the game with higher resolution and much more richly detailed visuals. Additionally, owners of the PS4 version of the game will get a free upgrade to the PS5 version, too.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Planet Coaster
Letting player’s imaginations run wild, Planet Coaster will allow you to build your very own theme park at an insane level of detail. Look, this is basically a brand new Theme Park for an all-new generation of gamers and we can’t wait to play it on day one of the PlayStation 5’s launch.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Sony and Insomniac Games have confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a PlayStation 5 launch title this holiday season. Rather than a full-blown sequel, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is instead a standalone adventure in the template and scope of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Look, we’ll take any more Spider-Man we can get, and if the trailer was any indication at all, we’re in for a treat.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Astro’s Playroom
A bundled in title embedded into the OS of every PlayStation 5 (think how Playroom exists on the current PlayStation 4), Astro’s Playroom is a charming platform adventure featuring everyone’s cheerful little PlayStation robot. Built as a showcase of the PS5’s 3D audio and DualSense controller, Astro’s Playroom looks like it’ll be quite the treat indeed!
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Bugsnax
The cheerful food and bugs adventure Bugsnax from the same developer that brought us Octodad, will arrive alongside the PlayStation 5 when it launches sometime this holiday season.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – NBA 2K21
NBA 2K21 was confirmed to be a launch title during the PS5 games showcase, boasting photo-realistic visuals and a slew of yet to be announced features. Expect to hear more soon!
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Fortnite
Though hardly a surprise, the news that one of the largest and most popular games on the planet would be PlayStation 5 bound is still hugely welcome all the same. In addition to launching alongside Sony’s new console, developer Epic Games has also said that sometime during 2021 Fortnite will make the leap to its new and highly advanced Unreal Engine 5 technology too.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – DIRT 5
Codemasters rally racing series gets a next generation facelift with DIRT 5, a world spanning rally effort that looks to take full advantage of instant loading times and improved visual fidelity to deliver a superlative experience. DIRT 5 is slated to release alongside the PlayStation 5 in holiday 2020.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
Confirmed to release on PlayStation 5 alongside the console in holiday 2020 and developed by the same team behind Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Origins, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla whisks players away to 9th century Saxon Britain where payers take control of Eivor, a deadly Viking raider who will do anything he can to triumph.
With the ability to build their own Viking settlement and wage war across a lush depiction of England in the Dark Ages, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is looking like a must-have PS5 launch title to say the least.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Call of Duty Warzone
According to comments from Infinity Ward, Call of Duty Warzone will be available day and date at the launch of PlayStation 5. Of course if you’re Activision, when you’ve soared past 50 million users with over the half the year to spare, it makes sense that you’d want to put the game on as many platforms as possible, right?
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Observer: System Redux
Due to arrive on PlayStation 5 at launch, Observer: System Redux is a full-throated remaster of first-person cyberpunk horror Observer which was developed by Layers of Fear studio Bloober Team and released on PlayStation 4 back in August 2017.
On PlayStation 5, Observer: System Redux not only boasts a native 4K resolution experience running at 60 frames per second, but it also includes a wealth of story content that wasn’t present in the original game.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Godfall
Something of a surprise reveal at the 2019 Game Awards, Godfall is a Gearbox published effort that has been described by the company as a ‘loot slasher’ and will use the very latest iteration of Unreal Engine 4.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – Rainbow Six Siege
One of the most popular adversarial multiplayer shooters available, Ubisoft has confirmed that Rainbow Six Siege will make the leap to the PS5, arriving on ‘day one’ of the new console’s launch later this year.
With full cross-play supported between PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, Ubisoft is doing everything they can to ensure that early adopters of the PS5 will be able to carry on their Rainbow Six Siege careers without any interruption. As to new features for the PS5 version of the game, nothing has been announced as yet, but the usual technical improvements such as massively improved visuals and practically non-existent loading times both seem like a safe bet.
Confirmed PS5 Launch Title – WRC 9
With the news that Nacon and KT Racing have extended its agreement with the WRC through to the end of 2022, comes the confirmation that WRC 9 will arrive on current gen consoles in September this year.
More than that, is the confirmation that a PS5 version of WRC 9 is in the works and if it doesn’t make the PS5 launch a couple of months later, I’ll eat my hat.
PS5 Launch Line-Up Likely Additions
Destiny 2 – Likely Due Holiday 2020
Confirmed by developer Bungie after the Inside Xbox 2020 briefing, we now know that it’s super popular, sci-fi loot-shooter Destiny 2 will indeed release for PlayStation 5.

Oddworld: Soulstorm – Holiday 2020 Release Likely, Not Confirmed
A full tilt remake of Abe’s Exxodus, Oddworld: SoulStorm has been reimagined from the ground up for PlayStation 5, boasting all new physics puzzles, platforming and much more.
