There are some cracking games coming up this year for PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro. And that's why we've decided to round up the best you can expect to see in the coming months, even stretching into early next year,

We've included release dates and trailers for each game, to give you all the info you need to pop them on your wishlists. And you'll also find them in chronological order.

So check these out...

  • Release date: 22 May 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Switch
  • Publisher: Bigben

Made by much of the same development team behind the much-loved Top Spin series, Tennis World Tour brings the sport back to console with deep customisation, tournaments, a career mode and much more. Unlike tennis games before it, you must plan your season cleverly in order to avoid burnout - only entering tournaments that will help you progress. If it's half as good as Top Spin 4 was, we cannot wait.

David Cage, founder of development studio Quantic Dream, is well known for lifelike gaming experiences. His forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, Detroit: Become Human, plays upon android co-inhabitants on earth, their (dis)obedience of their human masters, 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. Where it differs from some of the previous titles is in the vast number of different choices that can be made and the multiple plot branches that can be taken. Playable characters can even die early in the game, changing the rest of the story completely.

  • Release date: 5 June 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One
  • Publisher: Codemasters

While Codemasters is better known for its simulation driving games, OnRush looks a blast. It's a multiplayer speed fest with true arcade properties and comes across, to us, as a mix between TrackMania and Motorstorm. That's no bad thing at all.

  • Release date: 5 June 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Focus Home Interactive

This eagerly anticipated action-RPG puts you into the shoes of Doctor Jonathan Reid, who has been turned into a vampire and must balance his craving for blood, while discovering the secret behind a disease ravaging London after the first World War. It was originally due for release at the end of 2017 but is almost ready to be unleashed.

  • Release date: 12 June 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Frontier

A full theme park simulation game, albeit one with dinosaurs and, potentially, running and screaming, Jurassic World Evolution is full of depth and micromanagement. Not surprising from the team behind Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and Planet Coaster. The fact that Jeff Goldblum provides a lot of voice over for the game is icing on the cake.

  • Release date: 15 June 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Switch
  • Publisher: Warner

With the sequel hitting cinemas this summer, Warner's Lego platform game franchise turns its attention onto The Incredibles. You get to play as the entire Parr family and use their unique powers in an extended adventure based on the plots of both films.

  • Release date: 29 June 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

Ubisoft's sequel to its multiplayer driving game adds all manner of brand new vehicles to race in, including boats and aeroplanes. There will be a massive open world environment to explore and a single-player mode, but once again you are encouraged to hook up with friends old and new and play massive game sessions online.

  • Release date: 8 August 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Deep Silver

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.

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: 30 August 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One
  • Publisher: Konami

PES returns with a number of new features, new licences and graphical updates. It features Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho as the cover star but you can also splash out more for a special edition with footy legend David Beckham represented in different versions from throughout his career. 

  • Release date: 7 September 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

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, although if you pre-order the game you also get the Iron Spider Suit from Avengers: Infinity War as a bonus. Neat.

  • Release date: 14 September 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Switch
  • Publisher: Square Enix

Lara Croft is back in the third and final part of her origin story. You finally find out exactly how she became the Tomb Raider we all know and love. More will be revealed on 27 April.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the first in the franchise that will not feature a single-player campaign mode. Instead, it focuses on competitive play in Multiplayer as the bedrock for the game. Then there is a new Zombies mode with three distinct locations to play co-op in. And finally, COD embraces the battle royale genre with Blackout.

We already had an inkling Red Dead Redemption 2 was on the cards before the official reveal at the end of 2016. And, considering what we've seen of it so far, it's looking every bit the game we've wanted for years. The only issue is that it has been delayed a couple of times; this time to 26 October 2018. Rockstar is keeping us sure a-waiting.

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

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: Fall 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Starbreeze

Developed by the same team behind the Payday first-person shooters, Overkill's The Walking Dead is based on the comic books and is a four-player co-op game in a similar vein. It is set in Washington as the zombie outbreak occurs and you get to choose one of several characters to fight as. Survival will very much be the aim.

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

Announced during E3 in June 2017, 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.

  • Release date: 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Saber Interactive/Paramount Pictures

Based on the film rather than the books, World War Z will be one of many zombie games out in 2018/early 2019 but promises four-player co-op in the third-person shooter style. We don't know that much about the gameplay, but you can be assured of one thing: there will be thousands of undead denizens trying to eat your face off.

  • Release date: Spring 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: EA

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. Unfortunately, it has been pushed back to an early 2019 release to avoid clashing with EA's latest Battlefield game.

  • Release date: 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Sony 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 well in making us want to play The Last of Us 2 even more - if that was indeed possible.

  • Release date: 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

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 tech in the game, though, is just how many zombies are depicted on screen. Sadly, you'll have to wait until 2019 for it, but it'll hopefully be worth it.

  • Release date: TBC
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Kicking off the PlayStation Paris Games Week 2017 event in November 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.

  • Release date: TBC
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

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.

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 the gameplay 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.
