PS5 Games Price
Sony has announced that PlayStation 5 games price. The rumors of touching $70 have turned out to be true. Sony has kept the price of first-party launch titles in the range of $49.99(₹3,700) and $69.99, close to ₹5,200 in India. For the Indian market, the upper barrier on PS games price was set at ₹3,999. However, it appears that the ceiling will be broken and the PS5 games price will touch ₹5,000.
Demon’s Souls and Destruction All Stars will the two launch titles priced at $70. However, there are a couple of titles that we are aware of that have been priced at $49.99 and $60 too. They are Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure respectively.
We have to wait for some more time since none of the first-party PS5 titles have been put up for sale.
List of PS5 games revealed till date
Spider-Man Miles Morales
The event kicked off with the gameplay from Spider-Man Miles Morales. In the seven-minute gameplay demo, Sony shows us the titular character, Miles Morales, in the Harlem region of New York. We see some great ray-traced reflection and the next-gen graphics in the demo. In the later section of this demo, Sony also shows the actual gameplay as Spider-Man takes on some villains at the Braithwaite Bridge.
Spider-Man Miles Morales is coming to the PS4 and the PS5 later this year. The game would cost $49.99
Final Fantasy XVI
The next big announcement was about Final Fantasy XVI. The latest entry in the popular RPG series from Square Enix looked brilliant, and it was not only the visuals that blew our minds. The trailer shows us that the game is set during the middle ages, full of dangerous foes as we search for the much-coveted Mother crystals.
The game’s protagonist, Joshua, has a special power that his comrades must protect from the world at all costs. The trailer shows the backstory of the main characters and reveals some plot points that revolve around deceit, bravery, and the woes of war.
The trailer did not reveal the launch date for the game, but we will hear more about the game in 2021.
Resident Evil Village
Sony also showcased the story of the upcoming Resident Evil Village at this event. The first-person shooter from Capcom follows the events after Resident Evil VII. We see Chris and Mia once again as we take control of Ethan. The world around them is turning into chaos as monsters, which look more like werewolves than zombies, attack the village. There was not much in terms of gameplay in this new trailer, but it gives some strong Resident Evil 4 vibes. The new Resident Evil will come out in 2021.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy
We also got a look at a Harry Potter RPG game set in the late 1800s. Hogwarts Legacy lets us explore some of the iconic locations at the iconic school of witchcraft and wizardry. By the looks of the trailer, it would be a full-blown RPG, and all our choices would affect the future of the school as we make friends, battle trolls, and tame the fantastic beasts.
God of War: Ragnarök
At the end of the event, Sony gave a teaser to the upcoming project from Santa Monica Studio. The next God of War game is called Ragnarok and will come out in 2021. God of War: Ragnarök is a sequel to 2018’s God to War, exclusive to PS4.
After the PS5 price and the PS5 launch date was announced, Sony Interactive Entertainment went ahead with the announcement of God of War: Ragnarök as a “one more thing”.
Apart from these titles, the Sony event showcased games such as Horizon Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Gran TurismoTM 7, Returnal, Devil May Cry 5, Monster Hunter World, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Death Loop, Oddsworld, Fortnite, Demon’s Souls, and more.
