Godfall arrives on PlayStation 5 and the Epic Games Store holiday 2020.

Returnal | Housemarque, PlayStation Studios

Returnal transforms roguelike gameplay into a third-person shooter where players fight to survive a hostile planet that changes with every death. Players can switch instinctively between firing modes by using a single adaptive trigger and can get right back into the action after dying. PS5’s immersive 3D audio brings the alien world to life around the player, helping players navigate the intense positional combat.

Sackboy A Big Adventure | Sumo Digital, PlayStation Studios

Iconic PlayStation hero Sackboy returns in an all-new 3D adventure with a deeply immersive and expressive control scheme. Players can go on this epic platforming journey solo-style, or they can team up with friends for collaborative, chaotic multiplayer fun.

Stray | BlueTwelve Studio, Annapurna

Stray, formerly known as HK Project, is a third-person cat adventure game set amidst the detailed neon-lit alleys of a decaying cybercity and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly. Roam surroundings high and low, defend against unforeseen threats, and solve the mysteries of this unwelcoming place inhabited by nothing but unassuming droids and dangerous creatures.

Stray is developed by BlueTwelve Studio, a small team from south of France mostly made of cats and a handful of humans, including @Koola_UE4 and @vivncolors.


Solar Ash | Heart Machine, Annapurna

Solar Ash is the second game from Heart Machine, creator of 2016's award-winning Hyper Light Drifter.

Journey through a surreal, vivid and highly stylized world filled with mystery, wild high-speed traversal, endearing characters, and massive enemy encounters. The Void beckons in Solar Ash, coming to PS5 in 2021.

The Pathless | Giant Squid, Annapurna

Building on its success with the critically-acclaimed underwater adventure, ABZÛ, developer Giant Squid turns its focus to dry land in The Pathless

Become the Hunter, a master of archery who travels to a mystical island to dispel a curse of darkness that grips the world. Forge a connection with your eagle companion as you hunt corrupted spirits, but be careful not to become the hunted yourself.
