All of the games you’ll be playing with your brand new consoles!

While some folk might like to compare and contrast the speeds and memories of their consoles, it is likely true that the majority of players are here for the games. Y’know, the stuff they get to play.

To that end, making the decision of which console they’ll be getting this year – if they’re not getting them both! – will come down to the games they can actually get their hands on when the console comes out.

So we have compiled a full list of titles that will be available on the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/Series S when the consoles themselves come out. (This list is correct at the date of publication, and is subject to change)

PlayStation 5 launch titles:

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Astro’s Playroom
  • Demon’s Souls
  • Destruction All Stars
  • Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition
  • Fortnite
  • Godfall
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Observer: System Redux
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure

Xbox Series X/Series X launch titles:

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition
  • DiRT 5
  • Fortnite
  • Gears Tactics
  • Rainbox Six: Siege

Additionally, there are even more games that will be available on both Sony and Microsoft’s new consoles. Some may have been released on the current-gen consoles and will make the port over, some are due out a few days or weeks after the next-gen consoles, and some don’t have a 100% certified release date, but we have been informed that it will be some time in 2020. (Again, this list is correct at the date of publication, and is subject to change.)
