Time is sure flying by, but there are still plenty of new games being announced. There are some amazing games coming up for PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro.

We're expecting to see plenty more in 2020 and beyond. There are also lots 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 so you can see what to put on your wishlist next.

Arise

  • Release date: 3 December 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also PC and Xbox
  • Publisher: TechlandGames
  • See official site

Arise looks to be a quaint and satisfying adventure game with beautiful visuals and an engaging story:

"Arise is an emotional journey through the bittersweet lives of two people where memories come alive and time bends to your will. Lose yourself in moments of happiness and overcome every hardship as you relive your life’s story. A story of joy and sorrow. A simple story."

Session

  • Release date: December 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox and PC
  • Publisher: Crea-ture Studios

After a successful crowd-funding phase on Kickstarter, Session finally made its E3 bow at the 2018 Xbox media briefing and looks more like a spiritual successor to Skate 3 than we could have hoped. As it's a small indie developer, but that doesn't mean it should be overlooked. 

Desperados III

  • Release date: 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic

squirrel_widget_148925

Desperados III is set to be a thoroughly challenging real-time strategy game with a Wild West setting - much like its PC only predecessors. You'll take control of five distinctive characters with varying skillsets including the ability to infiltrate, spy, sabotage, elude, steal, abduct, deviate, assassinate and blow stuff up. We still don't know an exact release date, but have been told it's still definitely 2019. 

Biomutant

  • Release date: 2019
  • 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.  

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

  • Release date: 16 January 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco

Dragon Ball: Kakarot looks like it will more-than satisfy every fan's needs, with fast-paced beat-em-up action and superb, cartoon visuals that pop out of the screen - especially during some of the game's most spectacular effects.

Journey to the Savage Planet

  • Release date: 28 January 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on PS4 and PC
  • Publisher: 505 Games
  • See the official site

Journey to the Savage Planet is an "upbeat" co-op adventure game set in a wonderful alien world crammed full with weird alien creatures. Exploring, adventuring and plenty of colourful fun too.  

Zombie Army 4: Dead War

  • Release date: 4 February 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Rebellion
  • See the official site

squirrel_widget_160974

After the huge success of the Zombie Army Trilogy, Rebellion has created a sequel that improves on the formula in every way. Still heavily inspired by its Sniper Elite series, but with a few cunning Strange Brigade touches thrown in for good measure, Zombie Army 4: Dead War promises schlock action and zombie slaughter for up to four players in co-op.

Darksiders Genesis

  • Release date: 14 February 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also Xbox One, Switch, PC and Stadia
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic
  • See the official site

squirrel_widget_148923

Not so much a direct sequel to the Darksiders games, Darksiders Genesis is instead a top-down action-adventure where you'll be smashing your way through hordes of demons, angels and everything in-between. This game also gives players the first look at the Darksiders world before the events of the original game took place. 

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels

  • Release date: 21 February 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also Xbox One, Switch, PC and Stadia
  • Publisher: Curve Digital
  • See the official site

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels is a new game based on the Netflix TV show. As you can imagine, this is set to be a brutally violent and interesting turn-based strategy game told from the side of the cartel or the DEA. 

Gods & Monsters

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

squirrel_widget_160938

Gods & Monsters 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).

Final Fantasy VII Remake

  • Release date: 3 March 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Square Enix

A complete, from-the-ground-up rebuild of one of our favourite Final Fantasy RPGs, Final Fantasy VII Remake promises to feel like a brand new game. Action combat has replaced turn-based and the graphics are on a par with FFXV at the very least.

Watch Dogs: Legion

  • Release date: 6 March 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Stadia
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • See the official site

squirrel_widget_160950

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.

Cyberpunk 2077

  • Release date: 15 April 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: CD Projekt Red

squirrel_widget_148928

Cyberpunk 2077 was by far and away the best game shown at E3 2018, 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. 

Marvel's Avengers

  • Release date: 15 May 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Stadia
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • See the official site

Not constrained by the movies or comic books, the games outing for the Avengers will feature a completely original story and many different heroes for you to get your hands on. Developed by Crystal Dynamics (the team behind the Tomb Raider games) in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, Nixxes Software and Crystal Northwest, it could be the start of a new, non-MCU but still very important franchise.

The Last of Us Part II

  • Release date: 29 May 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

The sequel to Naughty Dog's superlative horror game may not be for the faint-hearted, but it's still one of the most eagerly-anticipated games of all time. We still have no clue when to expect it, however. Rumours suggest it might not arrive until November 2020.

Dying Light 2

  • Release date: Spring 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.

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2

  • Release date: 2020
  • 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.

Disintegration

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

Designed by the co-creator of Halo, Disintegration is a different kind of first-person shooter. It puts you into a grav-cycle, so you can hover above the battlefield, providing air support and guiding several ground troops in RTS fashion. Definitely one to watch for 2020.

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

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

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

Predator: Hunting Grounds

  • Release date: 2020
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Coming in 2020, the officially licensed game of the Predator movie franchise is an online multiplayer action shooter, where players are being stalked by the eponymous hunter.

Rainbow Six Quarantine

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

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. 

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

  • Release date: TBC
  • 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.

Outriders

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

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. 

Destroy all Humans!

  • Release date: 2020
  • PS exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic
  • See the official site

squirrel_widget_160998

After 15 years, Destroy All Humans! is finally getting a reboot. Taking on the role of the evil alien Crypto-137 you'll set about annoying and annihilating puny humans with everything at your disposal. You'll be doing everything from reducing cities to rubble to using the Anal Probe gun to get up close and personal with your victims.

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.

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.

Skull & Bones

  • Release date: TBC
  • 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 the end of 2020 instead, it is thought.

Ghost of Tsushima

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

When it was announced during Paris Games Week in 2017, Ghost of Tsushima took many by surprise. We found out more during E3 2018 but nothing else since then. It is an all-new intellectual property being developed by the team behind the Infamous series, Sucker Punch, and looks stunning. We await more news eagerly.

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.

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.
