It's been six months since the initial release of the PlayStation 5, and the hype in the gamer-sphere isn't going anywhere! For those of you that managed to get your hands on the console, we salute you. And for those of you that are still in the market, we hear Sony's ramped up production like never before...

Developers like Ubisoft, Blizzard and Rockstar have *finally* followed the console's release with news of exclusive and cross-platform games. And for a new kid on the block, the list is growing!

If you're looking for the best of them, you've come to the right place. After some *extensive* research, we've selected the top games coming to the PlayStation 5 in 2021. And whether you're a fan of fantasy or a hound for horror, we've got a lot to look forward to!

Returnal is the first PlayStation 5 exclusive on our list! The game follows an astronaut, Seline, who crash lands on a mysterious and isolated alien planet. You didn't expect it to be friendly and bustling, did you?

Seline soon realises she's up against an ancient civilisation, stuck in a never ending cycle... Every time she dies, she's pulled back again.

Returnal will release on PlayStation 5 on April 30th 2021.

Resident Evil Village

Capcom's newest game in the Resident Evil saga is another PlayStation 5 exclusive. The game follows Biohazard's main protagonist, Ethan Winters, as he's pulled back in to the morbid world of the Umbrella Corp. And he isn't the only familiar face returning; cue Chris Redfield!

Capcom's keeping the plot tight lipped, but if there's one thing we're certain on, it's that Ethan *probably* should have stayed away this time.

Resident Evil Village will release on PlayStation 5 on May 7th 2021.

Far Cry 6

Would it be Far Cry without a seemingly picturesque island led by a tyrant!? Set on the tropical island of Yara, you'll play as a guerrilla fighter leading a resistance against the powers that be: the one and only Gus Fring!

We don't know much more about the plot, but we do know that our 'fang for hire' request for Chorizo the dachshund is in process...

Far Cry 6 will release on PlayStation, Xbox and PC in late 2021.

Rainbow Six Quarantine

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege dropped in to save our 2020 in isolation. A year down the line, Ubisoft's rather aptly named Rainbow Six Quarantine is sure to be just as much of a hit!

This time, instead of defeating human enemies, you'll be tasked with defeating the supernatural. An alien parasite is infecting the human race, and who else would we trust to save us other than a R6 Operator!?

Rainbow Six Quarantine will release on PlayStation, Xbox and PC. There is no official release date.

Dying Light 2

Dying Light's sequel has had a fair few set backs over the last year. But Techland have recently confirmed its release on PlayStation 5, giving us something to get excited about again.

The sequel will follow the post-apocalyptic zombie survival game, 15 years after the original outbreak. Only time will tell if the infection escaped Harran, or if our dropkick picked up any more damage...

Rainbow Six Quarantine will release on PlayStation, Xbox and PC. There is no official release date.
