If Sony, as we have noted, relies on the diversification of the list of games accompanying the device between exclusives and third-party games, it focuses on demonstrating the power of its device in terms of fees and reviewing the new features available in terms of gameplay methods.
Review my predictions for the exclusive PlayStation games that we'll potentially see as the device is available on the market.
Remaster The Last of Us 2 and The Online Mode
The Last of Us 2 will be released next February, 9 or 10 months before the launch of the new generation, so there is plenty of time for its developer to reintroduce it through an improved version of the PlayStation 5 as it did with the first part.
He also confirmed that the online phase will be presented separately for the game and what is better than the timing of the launch of the new device to be put up the experience of playing over the network, especially that Sony will need the online game competing with the rest and offering it to fans of this genre.
Bluepoint Secret Project
With the unveiling of the PS5 launch window at the end of 2020, there were official announcements from Bluepoint Games studio confirming that it was busy working on a new address for the device currently expected without revealing any further details.
According to team leader Marco Thrush, the project that is being worked on is huge and will leave us to deduce the rest without explaining what the project is.
But according to the latest rumors, the team is working to bring Demon's Souls back to the spotlight with Remick or remaster dedicated to the new generation.
It is considered one of the classic Games from Software that achieved an outstanding success on PS3 and opened the door wide to souls games that later spread extensively.
Tidux has already tweeted that this is supposed to be the launch address for the PS5 at the end of next year.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2 similar to ring fighting games
As a matter of diversification of the titles, the presence of a fighting game with the launch of the device will be useful indeed, and we have already heard rumors about the work of Sony on this game to be released next year for PlayStation 5.
It is said to be a 3D game similar to the milk fighting games other than the first part that was like Super Smash and contains an individual game phase and group game phases besides following the system of games provided as a service.
According to the leaks, this game contains many characters that can be fought by the likes of Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, Aloy, Crush and others.
Horizon Zero Dawn 2 The Winning Horse
Guerrilla Games managed to impress us all in 2017 with this game especially the great graphic progress in it and the elements of the gameplay and the story and you can imagine what the jump will be in the second part of this game with the capabilities of the new generation? That's why so much awaits her eagerly and Sony is aware of that.
Apart from the wishes there are many indicators that confirm the work of the developer on this game whether the announcements of employment or even the hint of company officials themselves, especially what was said by Jim Ryan and Mark Sanri when they announced the date of the launch of the device where they gave an example of the control mechanism and new features PlayStation 5 controls a bow-and-arrow game.
And that the hand with Adaptive Triggers technology will make us able to feel the power of bow tightening and launch arrow, and I do not think that the use of this example did not come out of a vacuum unless there is already a game that actually uses this method evolution of the device, and it is better to start our adventures with the new generation.
Improved version of Astro Bot or a new part
Through Mark Senary's interview with Wired magazine, the experience of the game's media professionals was mentioned by Astro bot developer to learn about Haptic Feedback technology such as giving us a slow and annoying feel when passing through the sand, but on the snow we will feel like we are flying through high-frequency signals, and giving us a sense of imbalance when standing over a shaky bridge.
Given that this game is one of the best PlayStation in Ar, it is likely that this demo is part of a larger project that offers new virtual reality glasses that we have heard earlier rumors about Sony needs such a game to be marketed to it eventually.
New Gran Turismo
In the same interview there was also talk about a version of the game Gran Turismo was transferred to the device and how the control hand of the device will give us a completely different feeling between driving on asphalt road and a bumpy road, and that the reactions that the hand of PlayStation 4 gave us do not compare with this experience.
They also reported that hitting a race car in a wall would be quite different from hitting a ball in the head on the football field.
This may be a hint that the Polyphony Digital team is already working on a new game for the device that is being tried right now.
New AAA totally title
While we believe that Sony will not throw all its cards at once with this device and that it may keep some of its team projects for later, the competition may prompt them to speed up the introduction of a new title.
Especially since it has an extensive list of talented teams that can innovate and present a new game that is the biggest motivation for the transition to the new generation.
This new device may be suitable for the launch of a whole new series as Sony did when knack introduced the PlayStation 4 as it eventually wants to convince players to buy the device in 2020 and not wait for its price to be reduced.
Here are the fingers to the team San Diego, which was announced in April 2018 and was said to be collaborating on a third-person adventure and action game from a high-quality third-person perspective and will provide unprecedented graphic alchemy.
This project is being collaborated with one of Sony's huge studios believed to be The Nutty Dog Studio.
In conclusion, these were the games we expect to see launched with the PlayStation 5, but do you think it will be enough to drive the device to success as soon as it is released and will satisfy the will of PlayStation fans?
Or are there other projects that should be on the players' table when you buy it?
