Last week the much-anticipated launch of the new PS5 gaming console unveiled what many consider to not only be a greatly improved piece of hardware, but rather a leap forward into what the art form of games can be. 

The console itself received mixed reactions, but the revealing of game titles got even the most hardened critic drooling with excitement.

At launch, two options will be offered: a PlayStation®5 console with an ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive and a PlayStation®5 Digital Edition without a disc drive.

Horizon Forbidden West

Aloy goes west in the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, and this time she’s saving the future world from a mysterious plague that’s threatening the existence of all the things.

Horizon Forbidden West continues Aloy’s story as she moves west to a far-future America to brave a majestic but dangerous frontier where she’ll face awe-inspiring machines and mysterious new threats.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Miles Morales is saving the world his own way in his own Spider-Man game.

Oddworld: Soulstorm

Abe is back and still trying to make his people safe.

Oddworld: Soulstorm is coming to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. It will be a simultaneous release on console and PC (Epic Games Store).

Stray

You play as a stray cat in a neon-soaked future world where humans have been replaced by robots and you just want to find your way home. I don’t need to explain myself. Look at her little backpack!

The launches just went on and on. I think 2021 is going to be one hell of a year for gaming. 2020 is a little shot so we aren't going to feel the real impact of these developments until we have all settled into the new world.
