You're the proud owner of a PlayStation 4 or PS4 Pro, or are still considering whether to make the investment in a Sony console or not. Either way, you'll find our list of tantalising gaming treats enough to have you excited for the months ahead.

There are plenty of amazing PS4 games on the horizon and we've chosen the best of those coming up - both exclusive and cross-platform releases - for you to pop on your wish lists.

We've included release dates where possible and a trailer for each. And considering several launch announcements were made during the PlayStation Paris Games Week Media Showcase, we've included our highlights from there and updated other trailers to be the very latest.

Release date: February 2018
PS4 exclusive: Yes
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Shadow of the Colossus was a cult hit back in the days of the PlayStation 2, and got a graphical remaster for a release on PS3. However, the PS4 version is almost a completely remade game. The same colossi are there to fight, with the same gameplay at heart, but it looks like a brand new title - stunning. The control method has also been tweaked, as has some of the shonkier camera angles from before.

Kicking off the PlayStation Paris Games Week 2017 event was Ghost of Tsushima, an all-new intellectual property being developed by the team behind the Infamous series, Sucker Punch. We're not entirely sure of the gameplay yet, considering the trailer is more scene setting, but this samurai tale is definitely on our radar now.

Another PS4 exclusive to be announced at Paris Games Week 2017 was Concrete Genie, an interesting game that reminds us a bit of Scribblenauts. That's because you can create graffiti on walls that comes to life and helps with gameplay. We'll be following this one closely in the coming months.

Release date: 2018
PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
Publisher: Ubisoft

Announced during E3 in June, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is long overdue, considering the first was released over 15 years ago. The game's other-world setting - where multiple species communicate and interact - is quirky, cheeky and stunning. Think The Fifth Element in video game form and you're half way there.

The follow-up to Metro: Last Light proves that we can't keep our gaming hands off the post-apocalyptic future. Not that we're complaining, Metro: Exodus looks stunning - while ensuring its fair share of frightening scares too. Monsters versus man, with limited supply of ammo, this first person shooter looks as though it could be a genuine thrill.

This new IP from Bioware mixes robots and monsters together in a third-person mission-based adventure which looks like a mixing pot of Fallout 4, Titanfall 2, Horizon: Zero Dawn and the studio's own Mass Effect. And we mean that in a good way. The vast open-world format and the way it can be flown through is a spectacle to behold. Here's hoping it doesn't fall into any of the initial traps that Mass Effect: Andromeda did, because this looks to be one of 2018's most promising titles.

Sony has followed its initial teaser trailer with something far more dark and disturbing, showing the sequel to Naughty Dog's superlative horror game will not be for the faint hearted. Be wary when watching the above, it's full of some extreme violence. But it does its job even well in making us want to play The Last of Us 2 even more - if that was indeed possible.

How do you follow up the Metal Gear Solid series now you're no longer involved? By making the oddest, most disturbing survival horror game on the planet, that's how. Or, at least, that's what we think Hideo Kojima is up to. We can't really make heads nor tails of it at the moment. Needless to say, the first game from his newly formed Kojima Productions has the entire world's attention. We just have no idea when it might be released.

Days Gone was the surprise reveal at the 2016 Sony E3 pre-show conference and it's looking better and better each time we see it. The story, set in a seemingly post-apocalyptic world, follows a badass biker trying to survive in a zombie-laden land. Cue interspersed sections of his past playing on his mind and there's the crucial balance of story and third-person shoot-'em-up. The real standout moment for the game, though, was just how many zombies are depicted on screen.

Release date: 2018

The infamous lead character of the God of War series, Kratos, now has a son, melding the typical smash-'em-up gameplay of old with a more heartfelt storyline. The game follows on from its previous Greek Mythology setting, moving into Norse Mythology, but doesn't hold back on the giant beasts and battles. From trolls to dragons, there's going to be plenty of bone-crunching fights to satisfy fans both old and new.

Release date: 2018
PS4 exclusive: Yes

One of Marvel's best-loved characters is coming to PS4 in all his web-slinging glory. The gameplay we've seen so far is partly reminiscent of the Batman Arkham series, with open-world settings and fluid combat. We also love Spidey's new outfit, which was created especially for the new game universe - how long until we see it in the comics though?

PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC

With Assassin's Creed: Black Flag already under its belt, Ubisoft is no stranger to the world of pirates - which gives us more than an inkling that this is going to be one very well received game indeed. Skull & Bones is a multiplayer game which takes you to the seas - where you'll need to use co-operative play to sink your competitors' ships and get the best loot possible.

Release date: 17 November 2017

Very near release now, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 looks set to please fans of the original game - while grabbing yet more thanks to a brand new solo campaign mode. The game is even said to have a storyline that "helps bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens". Interesting stuff.

Release date: Early 2018

David Cage, founder of development studio Quantic Dream, is well known for lifelike gaming experiences. His forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, Detroit, plays upon android co-inhabitants on earth, their (dis)obedience of their human commanders, and the inevitable fallout that such a power balance entails. As with all Quantic Dream games, the hyper-real visuals are wrapped around a point-and-click style adventure, with a decision-based storyline and consequential actions based on your choices. We must point out that the trailer above shows depictions of domestic violence and child abuse, so don't watch it if that could leave you distressed.

PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
Publisher: Rebellion

With its lick of British charm, Strange Brigade introduces an "exotic safari" of forgotten lands in a way that only publisher Rebellion could deliver. It's tongue-in-cheek 1930s-style trailer shifts direction not long in, introducing a rosta of enemy types - from the undead to armoured minotaurs - which look like they'll ensure it's no picnic.

Release date: 27 February 2018
Exclusive: No, also on Xbox One
Publisher: Ubisoft

After the stripped back sticks 'n' stones Far Cry: Primal, the forthcoming outing in the series, Far Cry 5, looks to be a far more current political missile. Set in a fictional United States, the story follows a preacher whose rise to prominence is more gang-like in style than religious. Throw in the usual array of hunting, shooting, flying and general disarray and it looks to be a return form for the series.

Release date: June 2018
Exclusive: No, also on Xbox One
Publisher: Rockstar/Take-Two

We already had an inkling Red Dead Redemption 2 was on the cards before the official reveal at the end of 2016. A slew of rumours about the game circulated in summer 2015 - specifically around E3 time. A map was leaked on NeoGaf, alleged to be a design guide. And Take-Two previously said that Red Dead Redemption was as important a franchise as GTA. Considering there have only been two games in the series so far, which originally came out in 2004 and 2010 respectively, we're certainly due another one. Yee-ha!
