We can't wait for the PS5 to land in the UK on Thursday!

The next generation of Sony's PlayStation is almost here, and we've got the complete list of games that are available from day one right here!

Demon's Souls

If you liked Dark Souls, you'll love its Souls predecessor Demon's Souls. Originally released back in 2009 exclusively on the PS3, this action-adventure title is being remade for the PS5.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure

Remember LittleBigPlanet? Well, Sackboy now has his own spin-off game and it's coming to PS5! This title is a classic 3D platformer and looks like a lot of fun, as LBP was always a nice game to play.

ANY TERRAIN: DIRT 5 is coming to PS5 soon

The gameplay too is impressive and we enjoyed this title, as you can read in our review. The PS5's haptic feedback will also help take motorsport games like DIRT to a level above current-gen.


Keeping with the rallying theme, we have a more serious take on rally with WRC 9. We were extremely impressed with this title when it originally launched back in August and more performance from the PS5 will only help its incredible gameplay and graphics.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Assassin's Creed Valhalla has been known to be a next-gen game for some time now. This is arguably the title that will make gamers want to upgrade more than any other launch title.

It's drop-dead gorgeous and its setting is fascinating. We can't wait to see how this plays out and links to the overall AC storyline. There's good news for PlayStation gamers too, as the title apparently runs better on PS5 than Series X.
