First up on our list of upcoming PS5 exclusives is Final Fantasy XVI, the sixteenth mainline entry in the extensive RPG franchise.

Produced by Naoki Yoshida, directed by Hiroshi Takai, and set in the land of Valisthea, it focuses on six factions on the verge of war due to an infectious blight.

Players will take on the role of a hero named Clive as he attempts to rid Valisthea of the Blight and defeat summoned monsters called Eikons.

Gameplay primarily revolves around real-time combat in which Clive uses a combination of sword attacks and various magical abilities.

The coveted stealth genre is not as well-represented in gaming these days as it was in previous generations.

However, up-and-coming developer Spikewave Games is looking to change that with the release of Evotinction, a new action stealth game currently in production.

Combining themes of space and sci-fi with story-rich stealth-driven gameplay, the upcoming PS5 exclusive sees you waging war with a rogue AI.

To survive, players must use hacking and crafting gadgets to avoid enemy detection while infiltrating a mysterious station that’s been overtaken by machines.

Reminiscent of games like Bayonetta and DMC, Stellar Blade is an upcoming PS5 exclusive about a survivor fighting unknown creatures on a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Combat is modeled after combo-heavy action games and sees you taking down enemies using spectacular attacks, parries, and dodge maneuvers.

The game will also feature platforming sections that will have players scaling walls, sliding tactically around enemies, swinging from ropes, and much more.

On PS5, Stellar Blade will take advantage of the DualSense controller’s built-in haptic feedback.

Next up is Eternights, a new dating action-adventure game by Studio Sai that will be released on PS5 first.

Set during an apocalypse, it sees you scavenging for supplies, exploring dungeons, and courting romantic partners as you try to save the planet.

The game intends to blend an emotional love story with high-adrenaline combat in one unique package.

An enticing premise for sure, especially for anime fans that enjoy action RPGs and dating sims alike.

Joining the ranks of third-party games locked into timed exclusive deals for the PS5, Little Devil Inside is a visually striking action RPG with survival elements.

What sets this game apart is its distinct cartoony art style, which adds a surreal quality to the game’s overall appearance.

In it, you play as a brave adventure on a quest to save the world by killing off powerful arch-demons.

The game features a semi-open world filled with side activities to explore when you need a break from the main path.

The original SWKOTR is fondly remembered as one of the most groundbreaking video game releases for its incredible scope, immersive gameplay, and epic narrative.

The ability to travel to multiple planets, meet a wide range of diverse characters, and encounter larger-than-life foes made for an incredible experience.

With an upcoming remake in the pipeline by Aspyr Media, Lucasfilm Games, and Sony Interactive Ent., we can’t wait to see how the classic holds up after all this time.

Players can expect plenty of technical improvements to be included as KOTOR Remake is being rebuilt from the ground up using the latest tech.

One of the most mysterious upcoming PS5 exclusives, Pragmata is an all-new action-adventure title developed and published by Capcom.

The game depicts a near-future dystopian world in which humans can more easily travel to the moon and upon doing so, trigger a strange cataclysmic event.

Its sci-fi imagery, moody tone, and ambiguous story feel very reminiscent of another PlayStation exclusive, Death Stranding.

While details regarding its story and gameplay are scarce at the moment, Capcom’s assurance of a “deeply profound” experience has us eager to learn more.

FFXVI isn’t the only game in the franchise that’s expected to bless the PS5’s storefront within the next year, as Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth is also due out in 2024.

Positioned as the second entry in the Final Fantasy VII Remake Trilogy, Rebirth will continue after the divisive ending of the first game in a new, parallel timeline.

It’s rumored Square plans on taking the trilogy’s story in a completely different direction compared to the original FFVII.

This includes suggestions that Sephiroth may become an ally to your party and previously dead characters possibly returning.

Speaking of upcoming PS5 exclusives, Insomniac is also hard at work on a direct sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man that will come exclusively to PS5.

Little is known regarding the story or gameplay but we can confirm that both Peter Parker and Miles Morales will be reprising their roles.

Additionally, Kraven the Hunter, Venom, and likely a host of other recognizable Marvel villains will be making an appearance.

Much like the original PS4 title, Spider-Man 2 will utilize the PS5 hardware to achieve faster load times, smoother performance, and more detailed environments.

Having struck gold with Spider-Man and Mile Morales, Insomniac has been given the task of adapting another Marvel character, Wolverine.

Billed as a standalone adventure, Marvel’s Wolverine offers an emotionally-charged narrative with cutting-edge gameplay that pushes the PS5 to its limits.

While there have been several Wolverine-related games throughout the years, it’ll be interesting to see Insomniac’s take on the adamantium-infused hero.

For now, we’ll just have to hold our breath and wait until further details are revealed regarding this, as well other upcoming PS5 exclusives.
