There are some cracking games coming up this year for PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro, not least those soon to be shown in more depth at Gamescom 2018. 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...

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 roster 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.

Although we've had two smaller expansions so far, Forsaken is the real game changer. It takes Destiny 2 in a whole new, darker direction, starting with the death of fan favourite Cayde-6. And new multiplayer mode, Gambit, is simply amazing.

  • Release date: 7 September 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.

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. To be honest, it looks much like the previous two chapters based on what we've seen and played so far. But that's no bad thing.

Not just a simple remaster, this collection of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon has been graphically rebuilt for the modern 4K HDR age. It looks simply stunning, but developer Toys for Bob has ensured that the original gameplay is truly authentic. Apart from the shonky camera controls, that is; they've been improved dramatically.

  • Release date: 28 September 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One, PC and Switch
  • Publisher: EA

FIFA is back, with some gameplay tweaks and even better defined crowd effects, but the headline news so far is that it now officially features the Champions League - something restricted to PES in recent years. Real Madrid has also revealed that Alex Hunter will join the Spanish giants in the third and final part of The Journey. Nice.

  • Release date: 5 October 2018

  • Publisher: Ubisoft

After the huge success of Origins, Ubisoft continues to look back at ancient times with the latest in the Assassin's Creed series. This time the era chosen is the time of the ancient Greek period, with references to Spartan hero Leonidas and some of the best combat we've seen in the franchise yet. And boats are back, oh yes!

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.

  • Release date: 16 October 2018

We've only just had one Lego game - in the form of Lego The Incredibles - and there's another coming soon. Lego DC Super-Villains carries on the tradition of platform action with well-known comic book stars. This time, however, you play the bad guys, led by The Joker.

  • Release date: 19 October 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC

Like last year's Call of Duty, Battlefield V is set during World War II and has extensive multiplayer modes. It will also have a single-player campaign, however, unlike the latest COD: Black Ops 4. So excuse the Xbox logos on this official trailer and enjoy.

  • Release date: 26 October 2018
  • Exclusive: No, also on Xbox One
  • Publisher: Rockstar/Take-Two

We've been waiting for what seems like an age for this and it's not too long for release. Please be good, please be good, please be good.

  • 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: 13 November 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Warner

After leaving Square Enix, IO Interactive is now partnered with Warner for future Hitman games and Hitman 2 carries on where the last season left off. However, rather than episodic, the entire series of assassination missions will be available from the off - as part of the same game. Result.

  • Release date: 14 November 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Bethesda

Possibly the most ambitious Fallout game yet, Fallout 76 is a prequel to the other RPGs from Bethesda Softworks and therefore presents a slightly less damaged post-apocalyptic landscape. It is more than four times the size of Fallout 4, we are told, and this time had dozens of real players inhabiting the same world as yourself, so NPCs can be person rather than computer controlled.

  • Release date: 4 December 2018
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Square Enix

Rico Rodriguez is back in a new, larger open world adventure than ever before. Fans of the series will also applaud the fact that enemy AI is claimed to have been dramatically overhauled - they were mostly dumb in the last outing. Let the mayhem begin.

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

Sonic Racing has always been one of our favourite karting franchises aside from Mario Kart so we're thrilled it's coming back in the form of Team Sonic Racing for modern consoles. It promises to have a hefty cast list of characters to play as, plus all-new team racing modes; hence the name.

  • Release date: 2018

  • Publisher: Focus Home Interactive

The latest in a long line of games based on the tabletop role-playing game is a survival horror RPG that is coming later this year. We don't have the exact date for it yet but are looking forward to seeing more, especially as we've loved other titles based on the same subject in the past, all the way back to Alone in the Dark in the early 90s.

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

A PS4 exclusive originally announced during Paris Games Week in 2017, Concrete Genie is an interesting mix of platforming and creative play. It's definitely shaping up nicely, based on the E3 2018 gameplay demos and while we're still waiting for an official release date, we are lead to believe that it's coming this year.

  • Release date: 2018

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: 25 January 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One
  • Publisher: Capcom

Not just a remaster but a remake from the ground up, Resident Evil 2 will have an enhanced narrative and modern day graphics. It will even be presented in 4K HDR on the PS4 Pro.

  • Release date: 29 January 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One
  • Publisher: Square Enix

Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy are back in the latest in the bizarre but brill mix of the Final Fantasy and Disney universes. We learned at E3 2018 that new worlds to explore include Toy Story, Pirates of the Caribbean and Frozen.

  • Release date: 22 February 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 early 2019 for it, but it'll hopefully be worth it.

  • Release date: 22 February 2019

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: 22 February 2019
  • 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. Sadly, it has been put back until early 2019, but some of the best things are worth waiting for.

  • Release date: 15 March 2019
  • PS4 exclusive: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

The Division decamps to Washington DC for the sequel and, from what we've seen so far, has similar duck and cover, multiplayer melees as before. It took a while for the first game to warm up, so we're hoping that lessons have been learned and the second hits the ground running. Literally.

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

This direct sequel to DmC 4 sees a return for Dante and Nero as playable characters and more demons to battle against than ever before. From what we've seen so far, it also really looks the part on the modern consoles.

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

The latest trailer, which debuted during E3 2018 is the first with actual gameplay footage. It also shows 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: No, also on Xbox One and PC
  • Publisher: Techland

One of our favourite zombie games of the last decade returns with more first-person parkour fun and even scarier night time 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.

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

Developed by Avalanche Studios - the same team behind the underrated Mad Max - Rage 2 looks to take the post-apocalyptic FPS to a whole new level. We are very much impressed by everything we've seen so far.

  • Release date: 2019
  • 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.

  • Publisher: 505 Games

Remedy is back and this time is developing a game that's cross-platform, including PS4. The studio behind Alan Wake and Quantum Break revealed Control during E3 2018 - a mystery game about a strange, shifting headquarters and the head of the Bureau of Control, Jessie Faden. It looks clever, interesting and, typical for Remedy, different to everything else out there.

Possibly coming in 2019 but there are no guarantees, Cyberpunk 2077 was by far and away the best game shown at E3 2018. We sat through a 50 minute demo of gameplay and our mouths were agog for the entire time. 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'll be honest, we have no idea what to expect from The Quiet Man or even what type of game it is. We do know it will blend live action footage with realistic CG graphics, but little else. More will be revealed in August 2018, we are told.

  • Release date: TBC
  • PS4 exclusive: Yes

When it was announced during Paris Games Week in 2017, Ghost of Tsushima took many by surprise. We now know more thanks to this E3 gameplay reveal trailer. It is an all-new intellectual property being developed by the team behind the Infamous series, Sucker Punch, and looks stunning.

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. Even three full trailers in, we still can't make heads nor tails of the gameplay at the moment.

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

Now that Bethesda's official Quakecon event has taken place, we've got full gameplay of Doom Eternal and lordy does it look good. You can see it for yourself above.

  • 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.

  • 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.
