The ‘90s console wars are (thankfully) behind us, but major console-specific exclusives can still make or break the popularity of the latest consoles.

Here are the 10 biggest exclusives on the horizon for PS4 and PS5.

10. Ghostwire: Tokyo

2022

Ghostwire: Tokyo made a huge splash at its E3 2019 reveal. The first-person game combines a horror vibe with FPS-inspired magic combat. With a while to go until release, there’s still lots left to learn about how it will actually play.

9. Forspoken

2022

We’ve seen only the barest glimpses of Forspoken so far, so there’s likely a lot yet to be revealed. The footage that’s been shown points to a massive environment to explore with extremely fast-paced combat and traversal along the way.

8. Kena: Bridge of Spirits

September 21, 2021

The first original game from animation studio Ember Lab, Kena: Bridge of Spirits is an action-adventure game with tons of visual flourish and more than a hint of Pikmin from its AI companions.

7. Jett: The Far Shore

October 5, 2021

Jett: The Far Shore is a chill-looking planetary exploration game that seems likely to gain the same cult status as its developer’s last game, Sword & Sworcery EP.

6. Stray

2022

Yes, Stray has a gorgeous cyberpunk city full of puzzles and cool-looking robots. That all sounds great, but what’s really important is you get to play as an adorable little kitty cat with a tiny backpack.

5. God of War: Ragnarok (?)

2022

Ragnarok may not be the God of War sequel’s official title, but an apocalyptic showdown with Norse gods is all but assured. There’s very little known about the game, and loads of speculation.

4. Horizon Forbidden West

February 18, 2022

If you’ve played Horizon Zero Dawn, you know what to expect from its sequel. If not, there’s plenty of time to practice your robot dino-slaying skills before Horizon Forbidden West is out.

3. Deathloop

September 14, 2021

One of 2021’s most anticipated games, Deathloop, is also a timed exclusive for PS5, meaning it won’t hit Xbox for at least a year. That should be plenty of time to fight your way out of its Groundhog Day-esque time loop.

2. Final Fantasy XVI

2022

Produced by Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida, Final Fantasy 16 looks to be a darker direction for the classic RPG series. It also features action-oriented combat, seemingly evolved from Final Fantasy 15.

1. Sifu

February 22, 2022

The more we see of Sifu, the more intriguing it looks. It’s an intense martial arts brawler with a unique death mechanic that ages your character with each failure.
