For many people, a major part of the decision to buy a next-generation console is the lineup of launch games, and before the big PS5 games showcase event in September, the PlayStation 5’s launch lineup was looking a bit lean. We now have more information on what first- and third-party PS5 games will be available when the console releases, as well as a list of PS4-era games available on the console through the new PlayStation Plus collection, including Bloodborne, God of War, and The Last of Us.
Below, we’ve rounded up the games that will be available to play on the PS5 at launch. Some games are confirmed for launch day, while others aren’t confirmed, but seem likely–Dirt 5 is an Xbox Series X launch game, for instance, so it will probably appear on PS5 from on day one as well.
One of the latest games confirmed for PS5’s launch day is Observer: System Redux, an expanded version of the original game with new content and graphical improvements. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War isn’t technically a launch game, but it releases just a few days after the PS5 is out and the next-gen version will almost certainly be released at the same time.
For many, the highlight of this launch line-up will be the remake of Demon’s Souls, the first game in the now enormous Souls franchise. The original PS3 game was GameSpot’s 2009 Game of the Year, and it’s received an extraordinary visual upgrade for Sony’s new console.

Confirmed PlayStation Plus Collection Games
The below PlayStation Plus Collection games are not enhanced PS5 versions of the original PS4 games. Instead, they are compatible PS4 releases that you’ll be able to play on your system if you have a subscription. Some of these games were previously released as PS Plus titles. Others are going to be on the service for the first time.
