Every time, it is exciting when a new console generation comes around, this 2020 is no different at all. This year, both consoles which rival each other are to be released, the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X. The interesting part is they are being released in this time with COVID-19 pandemic above everyone’s heads which actually hindered some release plans for both.

Right now, both Sony and Microsoft are devoted to launching their powerful systems this year but haven’t given any specific details on the release dates that are being boosted to compensate for the supply shortages. But what we actually forget during this is that there is gonna be a huge lineup of new games as we can see many Sony’s major titles are still being released on the PS4 and could skip the PS5 at least at launch. Sony said in the month of May it plans to announce line for the PS5 for the launch “SOON”
To back all these power-hungry games up, Sony’s PS5 features exciting new tech inside its hood that includes an SSD that conclusively improves the load times. It is also said this SSD isn’t even commercially released of PCs yet which shocks everyone, including me off course. It also features other elements to improve the fidelity of the experience while playing on PS5 like the new DualSense controller that would come with it, it uses haptic feedback and other things which really help one to connect with games at a deeper level. The Playstation controllers are also known as DualShock controllers.
So here are,
ALL THE CONFIRMED AND EXPECTED PS5 GAMES SO FAR.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
Daedalic Entertainment is the studio that is well known for its point and click adventure games like the State of Mind, The pillars of the Earth, and many more. This time the studio is developing a new title called The Lord of the Rings: Gollum in which you actually play as the Gollum, in his perspective to be precise, which is actually the first time across the entire Lord of the Rings brand which includes books/novels, movies, tv shows, etc. The lord of the Rings is already an intriguing and very interesting story and now we get to play with Gollum’s perspective is a whole new level.
* On a personal view I am kinda happy for Gollum as he is always overlooked in middle-Earth, Now he is getting his own game, isn’t that sweet and wholesome?
The game is expected to release in 2021.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
Well well well, what should I say? Ubisoft again takes us to a whole new world and era and this time its the era of the Vikings. In AC: Valhalla you play as Eivor- either as a man or a woman and just like previous AC titles like AC III, AC IV: Black Flag, and AC: Odyssey you’ll travel across a variety of locations and landscapes. But to me, this game feels different as I personally think it will have way less stealthy gameplay than previous titles just by looking at the trailer it gives out a feeling that this time we would see more on face battles. Just saying :).
The game is expected to release in October 2020.
The Elder Scrolls VI
Bethesda Game Studios already famous for its acclaimed Elder Scrolls fantasy series is developing a new installment. During E3 2018 a reveal trailer confirmed that Bethesda is working on the title. It seems Bethesda is still in the early days for the project. The previous title, The Elder Scrolls V sold around a staggering 30 million copies across every major platform making it one of the most successful single video games in history. Well, Bethesda has not confirmed that The Elder Scrolls VI will hit the next-gen consoles yet, but it seems it will.
The platforms of The Elder Scrolls VI are yet to be announced but it is confirmed that it would come after its other new game, Starfield.
Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2
This is the sequel to Cult classic which was released back in 2004. In 2019 at GDC, Paradox Interactive announced Bloodlines 2 that by the time it releases, there would be 16 years in the making that merely blink in vampire years in their perspective. Unlike the previous title where the character’s physical appearance was limited, this time it seems more robust.
