List of PlayStation 5 launch games, install sizes and 2021 releases

Sony has revealed a list of all the PS5 launch games and install sizes, plus over a hundred additional PS5 titles coming in 2021 and beyond.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

Note: Today is LAUNCH DAY and a number of retailers are selling PS5s or re-opening pre-orders. Keep an eye on our Where to buy a PS5 Online article to see if you can grab a console.

Every seven years or so, one video game console life cycle comes to a close and a next-generation begins. As it turns out, 2020 is one of those years. In November, both Microsoft and Sony are releasing high-end new consoles within weeks of each other. The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 have their unique quirks and eccentricities, but when it comes to raw power, they're comparable.

For many then, choosing which console to buy will come down to the games available on the platform. Which collection of experiences most tickle your fancy will ultimately push you towards one console or the other. For the first time since the Xbox arrived to combat PlayStation, both manufacturers have a big suite of in-house developers working on exclusive titles, too.

Below you will find a regularly updated list of all the games confirmed, announced and rumoured to be coming to the PS5. Where possible we have indicated the planned release window and console exclusivity. Release dates are global, although prices can differ between regions based on exchange rates.

Note, console exclusivity ignores the game's appearance on PC. And a "timed exclusive" is one whereby the game will release on PlayStation first, then appear on the Xbox Series X, and potentially Nintendo Switch, at a later date.

List of confirmed PlayStation 5 launch games

The below games are confirmed to be available for the launch of the PlayStation 5 console and through to the end of 2020. It does not include backwards compatible games, only titles with a known PS5 release or PS5 specific update.

Additional List of PS5 PlayStation Plus Collection games available at Launch

Sony may not have a service to match Game Pass, which is offered by Xbox, but it does have a counter move to entice fans to its console. At launch, 18 games will be made available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. The list consists of some of the best PS4 games of the current generation, made backwards compatible for the PS5. So, they're not new games, but they are free.

Here is the list of PlayStation Plus Collection games being offered to PS5 owners. Note: these games will not be available for free to PS4 owners.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Bloodborne
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • God of War
  • inFAMOUS: Second Son
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 5
  • Ratchet & Clank
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  • Until Dawn

List of PS5 game install sizes

Much like it was with the last generation, hard drive space is going to be a big concern for early adopters of the PlayStation 5 console. Officially, there is 825GB of internal storage space, which is less than what you would get with the latest PS4s. But this drops to 667GB after the operating system is installed. It was one of the main criticisms in our PlayStation 5 review.

It's not much space. Although it's important to note that Xbox Series X owners will face the same issue.

To make things more frustrating, the PS5's most vital hardware upgrade is its NVMe M.2 SSD hard drive. With up to 9GB/second read speed, it's the engine that drives fast loading and larger, more detailed game worlds. So, if you want all those things, you can't just play a game off an external HD. You'll need to go get an NVMe M.2 SSD internal drive – which isn't cheap.

At the time of writing, the only hard drive likely to fill this role in the short term is Western Digital's WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD. It comes in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB forms, ranging from AU$225 to AU$839. I pushed Western Digital on whether the SN850 was indeed PS5 compatible and was given the following statement:

With read/write speeds of up to 7000/5300MB/s, our WD_BLACK SN850 meets the performance requirements Sony has announced. However, we are still working with Sony to officially qualify our SN850 drive as PlayStation 5-compatible.”

Western Digital representative

For more information read our guide to expanding PS5 storage.

Below you will find the known install sizes of PlayStation 5 games. I've got these from checking on the PS5 Store, and double checked on launch day. We'll update it as more install sizes come to hand, and if these figures change closer to release. These are for the base versions of each game, with special edition copies likely to have more content and bigger installs.

* Denotes that size is taken from Xbox Series X version of the game, which should be more-or-less the same.

All PlayStation 5 games confirmed, exclusive, release dates and more

We have put together the Internet's most extensive list of PlayStation 5 games. These have either been confirmed or we have been led to believe they will be coming to the console based on our daily conversation with all the major players in the industry. It's worth noting that release dates can shift, especially given the challenges the coronavirus pandemic has placed on production.

Make sure you pay attention to the "Status", which can be one of four categories:

  1. Confirmed: Some games have been officially confirmed.
  2. Announced: Some games have been announced, but the formats are currently unknown, usually a sure sign they're cross-generation.
  3. Rumour: Some games are heavily rumoured, but not yet officially announced.
  4. Likely: These are games that are highly likely to be on the PS5 based on the historical release patterns of the series or publisher, or the intended release date of beyond 2020.

This list of PS5 games will be updated regularly on the road to the console's launch. If you know of a title that is not on this list, please do let us know.

Backwards compatibility on the PS5

Like the consoles before it, you will be able to play a huge selection of the most popular PS4 games on the PlayStation 5. We have not included these titles in the list below, as they are made for PS4, even if they can be played on PS5.

It is worth noting that Sony has placed an edict on developers that any title released for PS4 after 13 July 2020 must work with PS5. Some of the notable games this includes are Fast & Furious Crossroads, Ghosts of Tsushima, PGA Tour 2K11, Marvel's Avengers and Cyberpunk 2077.

It doesn't mean that they will be PS5 games per se, only that they will work on PS5. However, we are expecting some games to receive dedicated PS5 editions that make use of the new console.
