Are you sitting comfortably? Okay, now let’s begin. Fresh on the heels of Sony’s monumental PlayStation 4, comes its successor, boasting super quick load times and impressive power.
The Best… So Far!
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
PlayStation’s poster boy during the PS2 era, Ratchet went through a little bit of a lull during the PS4 generation. That’s changed with Rift Apart, which sees the lombax bursting back onto the scene to prove he’s still got it. Currently the best example of what can be done with PS5’s super-quick load times, Rift Apart sees Ratchet hopping through dimensions on his quest to save the world just one more time.
FromSoftware have become one of the biggest names in gaming since they released Dark Souls, and while some people bounce right off their high difficulty level (myself included), there is something undeniably magical about Bluepoint Studios’ remake of this game that originally appeared on PS3. Demon’s Souls is a masterclass in game design, and might well be the most beautiful game available today.
Horizon: Forbidden West
Seeing as the Guerilla’s first entry into the Horizon series, 2017’s brilliant Horizon: Zero Dawn became one of my favourite games of all time, it’s no wonder that I’m practically chomping at the bit to play this upcoming second entry in the franchise. The gameplay demos and the trailers we’ve seen so far look thoroughly brilliant, so here’s hoping it’s able to deliver on that promise.
Although I’ve only relatively recently gotten into FromSoftware’s games, the footage that has been released of Elden Ring so far looks absolutely fascinating. If it truly does exist somewhere in between a traditional Dark Souls game and the puzzle box dungeons of The Legend of Zelda, as it appears to, then by all means, count me in.
