We saw some of these top new video games during Sony’s event on June 11th. These new video games featured brand new ideas as well as sequels and expansions to current games.
Here are some of the best and most anticipated games that were revealed for the PlayStation during Sony’s event.
Top Upcoming Video Games On The PS5
Horizon: Forbidden West
Horizon: Zero Dawn was a great exclusive for the PS4 that was released during the earlier half of 2017. Three years after the release of Horizon: Zero Dawn, fans will finally get to enjoy the sequel on Sony’s upcoming PS5. Horizon: Forbidden West was revealed during the event on July 11, 2020, and is definitely one of the most anticipated games set to be released on the PS5.
Horizon: Forbidden West is a continuation of Aloy’s story. The game will take place in a post-apocalyptic version of California. Forbidden West will feature new tribes and hostile machines, meaning that there will be a much larger variety of enemies to face.
The Demon Souls remake was probably one of the most exciting games revealed during the event. Demon Souls was the game that kick-started the iconic Souls franchise. Since the release of the original Demon Souls, we’ve seen From Software release new additions to the franchise in the form of Dark Souls 1-3.
The Demon Souls remake looked absolutely stunning from what we’ve seen in the trailer. The remake also looks like it will significantly improve the combat and exploration as compared to the original. Based on From Software’s recent releases, players can expect the Demon Souls to be great from most aspects.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
Ratchet and Clank is a franchise that most PlayStation users grew up playing. The first Ratchet and Clank were released long ago on the PlayStation 2 and there have been many great additions to the franchise ever since. A pleasant surprise that we saw during Sony’s event was Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart.
Rift Apart is the first proper sequel to the original Ratchet and Clank. The trailer for the game showcased the fun combat that the franchise is famed for as well as a new character. Rift Apart will also feature the return of planets that players explored in previous Ratchet and Clank games.
Resident Evil: Village
The Resident Evil franchise is probably the most iconic horror video game series in the world. The series has been going strong since the end of the 1990s. The event on June 11th presented a trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil:” Village which looked absolutely stunning.
The trailer also revealed the return of the infamous Chris Redfield, as well as Resident Evil 7’s Ethan and Mia. Not much is known about the game so far but one thing is for sure, fans are absolutely thrilled to play the latest installment in the Resident Evil series.

Marvel’s Spider-Man was one of the best games released on the PlayStation 4. The great exclusive had a touching story and a very fun game play that made it loved by millions. One of the first games revealed during the event was Spider-Man: Miles Morales which was unexpected, to say the least.
As the name suggests, the new Spider-Man game will feature Miles Morales as the lead character. Not much is known about the game in terms of story and game play but that hasn’t stopped fans from being very excited about the game.
