While Sony has an extensive history of leveraging console exclusives to help grow the PlayStation brand, recent years have seen the company exploring new avenues to broaden its reach.
This has led to many once-exclusive PlayStation games finding a second home on PC after releasing for PS4 and PS5, including several rumored ports just on the horizon.
In this list, we’ll highlight the best PlayStation exclusives on PC and provide you with a list of all PlayStation games coming to PC in 2022 and beyond.
We’ll be updating this list in the future with new titles, so make sure to check back and let us know if we missed any of your favorite PlayStation PC games!

God of War
Released for the PS4 in 2018, God of War is a soft reboot of sorts for the Sony-owned franchise that attempts to separate itself from its more ultraviolent predecessors.
Going for a slightly more mature tone, the game centers on an aging Kratos as he’s thrust into the role of father and encounters a host of foes and figures from Norse mythology.
He is joined by his son Atreus, a skilled archer whose supportive talents complement Krato’s brutal and bloody approach to combat.
God of War was developed by Sony Santa Monica and released for PC in January 2022, where it currently has “Overwhelmingly Positive” reviews.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade
Split up into multiple parts, Final Fantasy VII Remake feels like less of a remake and more like some weird science project cooked up in the basement of Square Enix’s offices.
The first part released in 2020 for PS4 and pretty much blew everyone away with its approach to updating the PlayStation classic.
The game includes fully-realized environments, reimagined characters, and an updated battle system that mixes real-time action with traditional strategy mechanics.
As of December 2021, players can pick up FF7 Remake Intergrade on PC exclusively through the Epic Games Store; a Steam release is also planned following Square’s exclusivity contract with Epic.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is a relatively new IP for Sony that doesn’t have the same level of nostalgia driving its success as franchises like God of War or Spider-Man.
Despite this, Guerrilla Games has been able to entice players into exploring Aloy’s world and uncovering the many mysteries behind its mechanical creatures.
Sony appears to believe in the franchise just as well after bringing Horizon Zero Dawn to PC in 2020 and greenlighting a sequel that’s set to release in February 2022.
Whether or not the company plans to bring Horizon Forbidden West to PC is yet to be seen, but in the meantime, PC players can experience the first game with luxuries like custom settings and mod support.
While not the instant success Sony is used to, Bend Studio’s post-apocalyptic survival horror title Days Gone managed to impress players and critics when it released for PS4 in 2019.
Though it never took off like The Last of Us or Ghost of Tsushima, the game does have its fans, as evident by a petition signed by 130,000+ people urging Sony to greenlight a sequel.
Instead, the company would hold off until 2021 and end up bringing Days Gone to PC, where it comfortably sits with “Very Positive” reviews.
The PC port addresses many of the performance issues present in the console version while opening the floodgates for more PlayStation PC releases down the road.
After Hideo Kojima and Konami’s messy divorce, Sony swooped in to provide the revered Japanese developer with the necessary funds and creative freedom to get started on his next project.
This would end up becoming the one-of-a-kind action game we now know as Death Stranding, which released as a PS4 exclusive in November 2019.
Less than a year later in July 2020, the game arrived on PC and go on to achieve a “Very Positive” Steam review rating.
While it’s unclear what the future has in store for both Hideo Kojima and Death Stranding, a Director’s Cut originally released for PS5 is expected to launch on PC later this year.
Predator: Hunting Grounds
Developed by IllFonic and published by Sony, Predator: Hunting Grounds is an asymmetrical multiplayer shooter based on the iconic film franchise and released for PC and PS4 in April 2020.
In it, four players take on the role of mercenaries tasked with exploring remote jungles to eliminate insurgents and gather intel while being stalked by alien hunters known as Predators.
Predators are equipped with advanced technological weapons and gadgets that allow them to turn invisible, leap great distances, and generally kill anything in their path.
Although it may not be the best or most polished adaptation of a beloved IP, Hunting Grounds has “Mostly Positive” reviews on Steam.
Detroit: Become Human
Building off of the success of earlier titles, Detroit: Become Human is considered by many to be the best effort from French game designer David Cage and his studio Quantic Dream.
From its fantastic visuals to refined gameplay and an emotionally gripping story that gets at the heart of what it means to be human, the game is a great example of an interactive drama firing on all cylinders.
Detroit was originally released for PS4 in May 2018 but would later come to PC roughly a year and a half later in December 2019, where it currently sits with “Very Positive” Steam reviews.
At launch, the PC version was not without its issues and suffered from poor framerates and several minor bugs that have since been ironed out through patches.
Developed by Team Ninja and published by Koei Tecmo in Japan and Sony worldwide, the Nioh games are two of the best Soulslike action RPGs on the market and offer a considerable challenge.
Though the original Nioh was a PS4 console exclusive, it also came to PC; however, Nioh 2 was a different story and didn’t release on PC until about a year after the PS4 version.
Set during the late 1500s in Sengoku Era Japan, the game is a prequel that sees you taking on the role of Hide, a half-spirit half-samurai who wields an assortment of deadly weapons.
Considering how much of Nioh’s DNA is tied to FromSoftware titles like Dark Souls and Sekiro, the series is worth checking out until we can get Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne on PC.
Journey is a simple yet captivating adventure game that was created in collaboration with Thatgamecompany and Sony Santa Monica for PS3 in early 2012 and PS4 a few years later.
Roughly four years later, Journey would make its debut on PC and become available on Steam as of June 2020, where it now has overall “Very Positive” reviews.
The game’s main selling point was its unique approach at incorporating multiplayer, in which two players could meet and help each other using only musical chimes.
It’s the kind of game that feels right at home on PC and has a distinct stylized look to it that continues to hold up in 2022.
The Unfinished Swan
The Unfinished Swan is a follow-up to What Remains of Edith Finch and was originally released for PlayStation consoles in 2014 before coming to Windows PC and iOS in September 2020.
The game employs a very minimalist approach to its visuals while featuring walking sim gameplay and a story centered on a boy trying to find a swan that escaped from a painting.
Gameplay has you exploring surrealistic 3D environments in first-person while solving puzzles and splatting paint to reveal new areas.
The game was co-developed by Giant Sparrow and Sony Santa Monica as well as co-published by Sony and Annapurna Interactive.
Beyond: Two Souls
Detroit is far from the only Quantic Dreams’ title to release on both PlayStation consoles and PC, with Beyond: Two Souls being another standout entry for the studio.
The story revolves around a young woman guided by a mysterious force within her to explore her past and use her supernatural powers to shape the future.
While not as polished in terms of interactivity and visual storytelling, the game features noteworthy performances from talented actors Elliot Page and Willem Dafoe.
It’s also cited as having some of the best motion-capture performances of the PS3 era, as evident by its “Very Positive” Steam reviews.
Released for PC in June 2020, Heavy Rain is the third pillar in Quantic Dreams’ PlayStation catalog.
In it, players follow three protagonists as they attempt to identify and locate an elusive serial killer called The Origami Killer for their separate reasons.
Gameplay includes an abundance of tense quick-time events as well as copious amounts of dialogue interactions to push the story forward.
Considering how far interactive dramas have come since Heavy Rain was first released in 2010, the game is worth picking up to see how much the genre has evolved.
Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios and published by Sony for PlayStation consoles, Helldivers touts itself as a hardcore, competitive twin-stick shooter built for online and local 4-player co-op.
In it, you and your team play as members of an elite combat unit tasked with protecting Super Earth from droves of enemies amidst an intergalactic war.
Missions see you traveling to various planets where you’ll have to push back enemy forces who have gained a foothold by entering battle with your fellow helldivers.
PC players can pick up the Dive Harder Edition, which includes a free upgrade that adds all previous expansions, a new loadout system, and a new game+ mode.
Persona 4 Golden
Created by Atlus, the Persona series is an offshoot of the larger Shin Megami Tensei JRPG series and has been closely tied to the PlayStation platform ever since its debut in 1996.
However, following the critical success of Persona 5, Atlus and worldwide publisher Sega have taken an interest in bringing the series to PC, starting with Persona 4 Golden.
The game was originally released for PS2 in 2008, later ported to the PSVita in 2012, and then came to PC in June 2020.
Persona 4 Golden features new story elements and currently has an impressive “Overwhelmingly Positive” Steam review rating.
