10 Best PS5 Exclusive Games in 2021 and 2022
The best PS5 exclusive in 2021 and those to anticipate in 2022 are as follows.
Returnal game involves being stranded on a hostile planet with horrific landscapes. Getting stuck in a time loop and lost memories are the main characteristics of this game. It is a third-person shooter game, and one of the best PS5 exclusive games in 2021.
Not only are you playing to survive an increasingly hostile and ever-changing environment, but you also must scavenge and manage what you have carefully. You do not have an opportunity to buy new stuff when you run out of them. In fact, you will lose all your equipment and resources every time you die.
The game appears difficult, right?
When you die, you will find yourself back at the beginning at the crash site. Then you will lose every trinket or weapon you have earned as well as any ability-modifying parasites you may have picked up before.
Once you scaled through the hard mechanics of the game, you are left with the absolute beauty of your horrifying situation. As you embark on an adventure through the uncharted planet of Atropos, you will start to unravel more about the mystery of the planet, its creatures, and yourself. Just when you thought you are all done, you will reveal another hidden secret that takes you further down the rabbit hole.
You can discover this strange planet for yourself because Returnal is now available for PS5.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
Ratchet and Clank entail intergalactic adventures and their ensuing hijinks. This adventure features mind-blowing speeds, dazzling visuals, and a new baddie to defeat.
You will team up with familiar faces and get to know new ones as you move your way through the evil robotic emperor’s plans to conquer Ratchet and Clank’s dimension. Warp across battlefields, zip above breathtaking cityscapes, and experience new worlds in this PS5 exclusive game.
You will be able to play as Ratchet, but you can now mix it up a little with the introduction of a new character caller Rivet. This mysterious female Lombax hails from another dimension and makes her debut in this new game.
If you are a Clank fan, do not worry, you are getting a new treat too as you explore Clank’s new inter-dimensional mechanics.
You should keep a close distance with your arsenal of weaponry, though. You never know when you are going to need a Topiary Sprinkler, Burst Pistol, or Shatterbomb to take on the robotic scourge. With the all-new physics-defying gadgets, you will be able to slip through dimensions and boost into combat like never before.
God of War: Ragarok
If you thought “God of War” was over after 2018, then you should think again. Ragnarok is coming, and fans are clamoring for this change of direction for this iconic character. The tonal shift began in “God of War,” and its continuation looks promising with more story and combat precision.
Although the official trailer for the game indicates that “Ragnarok is coming,” we are yet to know if the Norse apocalypse will feature heavily in the storyline. Some people think it may be too soon for Ragnarok. If the game follows Norse mythology, there is a period called Fimbulwinter that comes first. This period heralds the beginning of harsh winters that last for three years.
Are a harsh winter landscape and new monsters set to roam Midgard? Or are the developers at Santa Monica Studio set to jump right into apocalyptic events? For now, we cannot really tell. God of War: Raganok will be delayed till 2022.
If you are looking for a game that demonstrates the PS5’s technical prowess, look no further, Demon’s Souls is all you need. This lore-heavy, third-person adventure has never been so good.
The creator, Bluepoint Games, went over the game with a smooth-tooth comb and retouched everything from quality-of-life improvements to assets. You should check out new features like fast-traveling outside the Nexus, photo mode, and a “Fractured World” mirror world. The latter turned the world space into a mirrored reflection of itself, giving a new experience for hardcore fans.
While the creators updated the game, making it a visual feast, they adhered to its core gameplay mechanics.
If you thought this game was difficult in 2009, then you should wait for this one.
The learning curve is still very difficult to overcome, and the developers have not added a different save system. You still cannot save your way to glory in this one. However, those challenges are worth it if you want to experience this classic PS5 exclusive game.
If you feel like getting away from heavy storylines and invest few minutes in arcade-like mayhem, and you are searching for quick matches that are perfect, then you may want to check out “Destruction AllStars”.
If you have PlayStation Plus, you might already be familiar with this title or have seen the thumbnail in the Plus menu. Despite the delay in release date, Destruction AllStars is the perfect way to keep your new PS5 busy.
Before you jump into the game, you need to understand that this isn’t a thought-provoking title that will make you question reality as you know it. This is a game that fulfills those primal urges to go fast and smash things.
You may think you have seen it all before. After all, combat car games are nothing new in the industry. Yet none of them have ever let players run around on foot after their car blows up. If you think it sounds dangerous, it is – and that’s part of the beauty of it.
