PS4 OWNERS know that the console’s at its finest when Sony are pumping out top-quality exclusives, and based on that 2019 should be a particularly great year.
Following on from last year’s hit exclusives of Spider-Man and God of War, 2019 promises to offer even more amazing titles to gamers.
Ranging from sequels to decades-old series to brand new franchises from world-class developers, there’s sure to be a must-buy game for you.
But with new releases each and every week, it’s hard to know what’s worth putting your money behind to guarantee a pre-order.
That’s why we’ve assembled this list of the best upcoming PS4 games this year.
We’ve included links to the best pre-order prices too, so you can snap the games up now for a great value price.
1. Days Gone
- Days Gone, £46.74 from Offer Games
- Days Gone, 49.99 from Game
We’re always excited to see a new franchise, and the post-apocalyptic horror game Days Gone has us particularly intrigued.
Set on the West Coast of the US, this open-world adventure game has you battling zombies to survive.
If you’re looking for something exciting, scary and challenging (the enemies look quite punishing), Days Gone is out on April 26.
- Dreams, £37.74 from Offer Games
- Dreams, £44.99 from Game
Media Molecule’s Little Big Planet series was one of the PS3’s biggest hits, so a new property from them is sure to be popular.
Dreams is an ambitious sandbox game designed to let you unleash your creativity. It seems you can do basically anything: compose music, animate characters or build massive, complicated 3D levels.
All of that can then be shared through the game’s social network. That means there’ll be an ever-expanding library of other users’ creations to explore too. Dreams is set to be unlike anything else ever made, and we can’t wait.
3. Shenmue III
- Shenmue III, £37.74 from Offer Games
- Shenmue III, 44.86 from ShopTo
The last Shenmue game came out 18 years ago, so this long-awaited sequel has a lot to live up to.
Set in 1980s China, you play as a martial arts fighter avenging your dad’s death – so expect plenty of combat.
The Shenmue III Kickstarter raised over £5 million from excited fans, who’ll be lining up to play it when it’s released on August 27
4. The Last of Us: Part II
- The Last of Us: Part II, £38.74 from Offer Games
- The Last of Us: Part II, £49.99 from Amazon
The Last of Us was one of the PS3’s best games: an emotional storyline, pitch-perfect acting and intense gameplay all combined to create a near-perfect package. Based on what we’ve seen so far, Naughty Dog’s sequel will deliver that once again.
Set five years after the first game (in Seattle, this time), you’re primarily going to be playing as Ellie this time, and she wants revenge (though it’s unclear what for…).
The trailers give us the feeling that this will be even darker than the first game, so you’ll have to brace yourself for an intense ride. The game’s not been confirmed for 2019 but we’re hoping to see it this year – if not, it’ll likely be out in 2020.
5. Death Stranding
- Death Stranding, £37.74 from Offer Games
- Death Stranding, £49.99 from Game
Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding was first announced in 2016, and rumour has it that we might finally see it by the end of this year.
It’s most famous for being downright weird: the initial trailer featured a naked Norman Reedus, while the second trailer showed off a foetus in a jar…
Kojima’s been very secretive about what’s in store, but we know that it’s an open-world action game with what seems to be a complicated, strange story. And with an all-star cast of Reedus, Guillermo Del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen, it’s sure to impress.
6. Ghost of Tsushima
- Ghost of Tsushima, £39.74 from Offer Games
- Ghost of Tsushima, £49.99 from Zavvi
From inFAMOUS developers Sucker Punch comes Ghost of Tsushima, an exciting new title set in 13th century Japan.
You play as a samurai fighting against the invading Mongol army to defend your island, with stealth-based action gameplay in a very stylish open-world.
It looks like a dream come true for any lovers of samurai films (you’ll even be able to play it with Japanese audio), and there’s a good chance it’ll hit shelves before the end of 2019.
