(Pocket-lint) - Time doesn't ever stop flying by, but that also means that there are plenty of new games being announced all the time. Even if the PlayStation 5 is right around the corner, the PS4 still has a host of great games coming down the pike. 

We're expecting to see plenty more in 2020 and beyond. There's a lot to get excited about! 

Here, then, are the cream of the crop, with release dates and trailers for each game. You'll find them listed in chronological order according to their release date, so that you can see what to put on your wishlist next.

Watch Dogs: Legion

  • Release date: 29 October 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Stadia
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • See the official site

The new Watch Dogs will be set in a near-future London which is under the grip of a totalitarian regime. It's your responsibility to build a resistance to stick it to the man and save the capital. There are plenty of new features in this game to keep things interesting - including the ability to recruit literally anyone you see in the world to join your team.

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

  • Release date: 10 November 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox and PC
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

squirrel_widget_332777

Another year, another Assassin's Creed, and this time we'll be travelling to Britain in the time of the Vikings, settling and conquering new lands as the nasty Templars continue to do evil deeds all over the place. It looks like more sumptuous stuff. 

Cyberpunk 2077

  • Release date: 19 November 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: CD Projekt Red

Cyberpunk 2077 was by far and away the best game shown at E3 2018, and it also wowed audiences at E3 2019 and Gamescom. Sure it's got Keanu Reeves, but there's so much more fun and thrills shown off within the trailer. The open world RPG is quite simply gorgeous, with no loading times and seamless transitions between huge areas as you travel the futuristic city. We can't wait to get our hands on this one. 

Immortals Fenyx Rising

  • Release date: 3 December 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Stadia
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • See the official site

squirrel_widget_160938

Immortals is an all-new IP for Ubisoft, lovingly crafted by the team behind the superb Assassin's Creed Odyssey. We don't know much about it at this point, but it certainly features some stunning aesthetics and a familiar vibe (can't help but make comparisons to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild).

Biomutant

  • Release date: 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also PC and Xbox
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic

squirrel_widget_148924

Biomutant is a brilliant looking open-world action RPG that will allow players to combine mutant powers and a wealth of weaponry to customise their characters into the ultimate hero or villain. The fate of the world is in your hands.   

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2

  • Release date: 2021
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Paradox Interactive

squirrel_widget_160962

It's only taken 15 years but a sequel to Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines is on its way. It is an in-depth, first-person RPG, like the original, but this time on consoles as well as PC. We can't wait.

Kerbal Space Program 2

  • Release date: 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Private Division

You can once again attempt to send Kerbals into space with a bigger, friendly sequel to one of the best tongue-in-cheek simulation games of all time.

Psychonauts 2

Double Fine studios is finally returning to one of its game franchises that people remember most fondly. Hurrah!

Rainbow Six Quarantine

squirrel_widget_160986

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine is a three-player tactical co-op FPS coming in 2020. It appears to be a spin-off from the Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak mode that made an appearance in 2018 - maybe even a direct sequel. It's set in the near future where a mutated alien parasite is infecting human hosts and causing no end of problems. Players must team up to battle it out against the environment and survive unpredictable missions. 

Away: The Survival Series

  • Release date: 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on PC
  • Publisher: Breaking Walls

Playing as a Sugar Glider flying mammal, you have to avoid predators and other dangerous beasts in order to survive in this third-person action-adventure game.

Outriders

  • Release date: September 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • See the official site

squirrel_widget_178015

Outriders is a new co-op shooter created by the same team that worked on Gears of War Judgement and Bulletstorm. It's a drop-in-drop-out affair with a dark and desperate sci-fi vibe. We don't have much to go on at the moment, but it certainly looks intriguing and a whole lot of fun to play with friends. 

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

  • Release date: 2021
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Switch
  • Publisher: Warner Bros.
  • See the official site

squirrel_widget_160902

Love Star Wars and Lego? Then we've got good news. This new Lego-themed Star Wars game that's set to let you play through all nine Star Wars films in one massive adventure. One potentially awesome highlight will be the ability to travel to any planet, in any order, at any time.

Elden Ring

  • Release date: TBC
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: FromSoftware

squirrel_widget_160914

Elden Ring is a new fantasy RPG that's bound to be incredibly punishing and intriguing too. It's the result of a collaboration between George R. R. Martin (author of Game of Thrones) and the team behind Dark Souls. Expect a wonderful fantasy game with a whole lot of death and mayhem.

Skull & Bones

  • Release date: 2021
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

squirrel_widget_148937

A classic example of why not to show games at a major show too long before they are ready, Skull & Bones didn't even make a reappearance at E3 2019 or Gamescom in the same year. That put its previous "2019" vague release date into the realms of unlikely. We might see it at in 2021 instead, it is thought.

Beyond Good And Evil 2

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

squirrel_widget_148926

Announced during E3 in June 2017, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is long overdue, especially considering the first was released over 15 years ago, and we still have no clue when it might be ready. 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 halfway there.

Starfield

  • Release date: TBC
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Bethesda

We know nothing about Starfield apart from the fact that it will be the first all-new IP from Bethesda Softworks for 25 years. Some are suggesting that it will be a sci-fi epic RPG: Skyrim in Space, basically.

The Elder Scrolls VI

  • Release date: TBC
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC (probably)
  • Publisher: Bethesda

Never has a logo created so much excitement. The sequel to Skyrim might not even be for this generation of consoles, but we're still tingling with anticipation nonetheless.

Dying Light 2

  • Release date: 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Techland

squirrel_widget_148929

One of our favourite zombie games of the last decade returns with more first-person parkour fun and even scarier nighttime runs. One of the other new features is a dynamic game world that shifts and changes based on your choices during key missions. Your game, therefore, can end up being very different from another player's.
