Horizon Forbidden West looks set to stun PlayStation 5 owners everywhere when it releases sometime in 2021.

Best PS5 Exclusives – Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

A standalone adventure that is roughly the same size as Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales puts players in the shoes of Peter Parker’s super-powered protege as he swings, thwips and smashes his way through the bad neighbourhoods of New York City. A PlayStation 5 continuation of Marvel’s Spider-Man from 2018, that was widely regarded as one of the best PS4 exclusives ever released? Yes please.

Best PS5 Exclusives – Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered

The definitive version of the 2018 release, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered not only boasts all of the DLC ever released for the game but also a stunning visual overhaul that includes additional visual detail and ray tracing at 60 frames per second. If you’ve not played Marvel’s Spider-Man before, this is absolutely the place you should start.

Best PS5 Exclusives – Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

  • Release date – TBA
  • Genre: Platform shooter
  • Developer: Insomniac Games
  • PlayStation Universe review score: N/A

No other game in this list uses the PlayStation 5’s screamingly fast SSD solution quite as well as Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, as players once more take control of the titular lombax and his robot buddy, though this time they find themselves falling through inter-dimensional portals at speed. One time you could be grinding a futuristic hoverboard over a massive cyberpunk metropolis and then within a split second, you could find yourself speeding down a snowy mountain. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is looking seriously impressive and true return to form for the long running series.

Best PS5 Exclusives – Returnal

  • Release date – March 19, 2021
  • Genre: Platform shooter
  • Developer: Housemarque
  • PlayStation Universe review score: N/A

A stunning third-person shooter with roguelike elements, Returnal comes to PS5 courtesy of Housemarque – the very same studio which graced the PS4 with Resogun at its launch back in 2013. As a pilot stranded on an ever-changing alien world, players find themselves stuck in a time loop where with every death they find themselves resurrected as they attempt to find a way to escape from the cursed planet. Boasting the most stunning visuals to ever come out of Housemarque, Returnal should make quite the splash when it launches sometime in 2021.

Best PS5 Exclusives – Sackboy: A Big Adventure

One of the biggest surprises of the PlayStation 5 reveal event, LittleBigPlanet’s erstwhile knitwear hero finally gets his own game in Sackboy: A Big Adventure. A beautifully twee 3D platformer that looks like a delightful mix of Tearaway and Paper Mario, Sackboy: A Big Adventure looks like it’ll be an excellent little platforming effort when it releases on PlayStation 5.
