Returnal, the third-person roguelike from the makers of Resogun, is coming to PlayStation 5 on April 30. We saw some new, very action-y gameplay footage.
Knockout City was unveiled earlier this month with some great marketing. The game itself looks alright. It launches on May 21.
Sifu is the next game from Sloclap, the team behind Absolver. Its brawling action is planned to release on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 sometime this year.
Solar Ash was first revealed in 2019, and it’s finally coming out in 2021. By the creators of Hyper Light Drifter, it will be available for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
We got our first gameplay footage of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. The new animatronics look great.

The highly anticipated Kena: Bridge of Spirits is finally coming out on August 21. It was previously scheduled for a March 2021 release.
Deathloop is still a thing. Here’s some more gameplay ahead of its May 21 release. Dig that Bondian theme song.
Last and definitely not least, Final Fantasy VII Remake is getting a PlayStation 5 update called Intergrade. It features some new content, including the first playable appearance of Yuffie Kisaragi in these new games. If you already own the remake on PlayStation 4, you get Intergrade for free, and it even includes save-data transfer from the previous game. You’ll be able to hop back into one of last year’s best adventures with improved graphics and loading times on June 10.
