Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Rift Apart is a great game that features rapid load times and subtle DualSense haptic feedback and lets you explore the capabilities of PS5. The primary reason that you should play Rift Apart is its colorful aesthetic, tight gameplay and heartfelt story. The game which is a continuation of Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus in 2013, would be a perfect game for those who are new to the series. It favors its titles with a strong formula that feels much similar to earlier Ratchet & Clank games.
Developed by Bluepoint Games, Demon’s Souls is the fantastic remake of one of the challenging and finest action RPGs of the same name. Fans of the original game could appreciate and new players will be thrilled to explore the new features and several tweaks in gameplay. The game sees the players in Boletaria, a bleak world which was nearly consumed by the “Deep Fog” as well as the Old One’s powers. The difficult gameplay along with dark fantasy elements, frustrating battles and fulfilling moments makes Demon’s Souls feel like conquering the world.
Deathloop, the multi-award-winning game of 2022, is described as a “murder puzzle” by its developer, Arkane Studios. This clever time loop adventure first-person shooter game tasks you to discover your environments by gathering information and putting it together. The impeccable sense of style involving a ‘60s Cold War aesthetic, a razor-sharp script and two immensely likable main characters makes Deathloop a great game to play on PS5. As the title says, the game has the potential to get repetitive after a few runs and is ideal for those looking to get stuck in a one-time loop.
Elden Ring is the action RPG developed by FromSoftware as an open-world successor to the Dark Souls series. The game offers you a rich and lengthy experience, to create a character and set off into a vast open world to explore at your own pace. The game offers you a lot to discover and lets you customize your character’s attributes and gear. Similar to FromSoftware’s earlier games Elden Ring also uses a “one-false-move-and-you’re-done” approach combined with methodical and graceful combat. The game lives up to its great promise by offering towering bosses to conquer and plenty of secrets to discover.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
The action-adventure game developed by Insomniac Games is a continuation of Marvel’s Spider-Man. The game follows Miles Morales, another hero who gets powers much like Peter Parker after finding himself bitten by a genetically-enhanced spider. Miles takes over his duties as Spider-Man as Peter has to make his way overseas to assist his girlfriend Mary Jane as her photographer with news coverage. Miles finds himself dealing with a tech-centric terrorist group called The Underground, the villainous Rhino, The Tinkerer, and a cabal of secrets that slowly unravel as he becomes a hero in the eyes of the people of Harlem.
One of the most niche games on the list, Returnal is an action-adventure game that casts you as Selene, an astronaut who crash-lands on an alien world and finds herself stuck in a time loop. The game tasks you to encounter all sorts of hostile flora and fauna as well as records from previous versions of Selene, who failed to escape. The gameplay of Returnal is very difficult as you lose everything you collected on the previous run whenever you die. The game is also very satisfying with procedurally generated new runs so that you will never know if you’ll find the perfect combination of gear and upgrades.
Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade
The visually enhanced PS5 edition of the timeless classic Final Fantasy VII features improved graphics, better loading times and a whole new episode called “Intermission.” The Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade features a whole new protagonist, Yuffie Kisaragi and a very different gameplay style from Cloud.
