Before I begin, stay safe and healthy. Now more than ever it’s nice to look forward to new games coming to a new console, and while a finalised launch lineup is some way off, this issue we detail all the games we know are coming to PlayStation 5, and some we hope will be there. Turn to p44 to discover games you will, and could be, playing on your PS5. The end of a generation holds a similar excitement to the start of one, and Ghost Of Tsushima is shaping into one of PS4’s best games. On p6 we reveal more details of the story and screenshots from PS4’s last hurrah. On p68 we get a glimpse into Call Of Duty’s future as the free-to-play Warzone arrives; discover the 25 reasons…

01 ghost of tsushima steps into the light

“JIN SAKAI MUST MASTER THE WAY OF THE GHOST TO TAKE ON AN ENEMY THAT HEAVILY OUTNUMBERS HIM.” For lovers of Japanese history, PlayStation 4 is the console of dreams, allowing us to immerse ourselves in both realistic and fantastic versions of historical conflicts. We now know Ghost Of Tsushima will be following Nioh 2 (see p76) and Sekiro onto PS4 as soon as 26 June. Developed by Sucker Punch, already known for the slick-to-navigate open worlds it created for the Sly Raccoon and InFamous series, Ghost gives you the whole island of Tsushima to explore while you attempt to repel a brutal Mongol invasion, based on real-life events. If you’re not a history buff, fear not: this is far from a dry lesson. Sucker Punch is dedicated to bringing the drama…

02 get ready to swat up on ps5

“[HAPTIC FEEDBACK] CAN BRING AN EXTRA DIMENSION.” Pitched as a spiritual successor to PC-only series SWAT, and borrowing from more modern titles like Rainbow Six Siege, Ready Or Not is a tactical shooter where killing isn’t your only option. Resolving conflict non-lethally is your priority and a methodical approach is encouraged. From flashbangs to zip-lock cuffs, you’re well stocked to face whatever is thrown at you. Though, as a SWAT operative in a dark and twisted version of the United States, you’re packing lethal tools as well as less harmful options. With a strong focus on realism, planning your loadout before you set out is key and, in multiplayer, discussing your approach with your squadmates ahead of time is critical. Looking at the floor plan, does it make sense to go in…

03 far from seeing the last of us

“THE SERIES LOOKS SET TO COVER THE EVENTS OF THE FIRST GAME.” Ellie and Joel will return, not only in TLOU Part II but also in a new series from HBO. The US TV giant will co-produce the project with PlayStation Productions and Sony Pictures Television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a number of big names have already signed on to the show, though a cast list has yet to be officially revealed. Get ready to cry all over again, because the series looks set to cover the events of the first game pretty closely. Craig Mazin, creator of acclaimed series Chernobyl, will be working alongside Neil Druckmann, the game’s creative director, as both writer and executive producer on this adaptation. Naughty Dog president Evan Wells is also an executive producer, alongside…

04 predator has its sights on you

“YOU’VE GOT PLENTY ON YOUR PLATE BESIDES THE ALIEN-LEAST-LIKELY-TO-WIN-MISS-UNIVERSE.” Back in early March, Illfonic CEO Charles Brungardt announced the studio’s latest offering would have a Beta weekend from 27 March. Free to anyone with PS Plus and supporting cross-play with your fellow mercs on PC, it was a promising pre-release tease of what’s still to come. Illfonic is already known for making a similarly asymmetric multiplayer game based on a different ’80s film with far too many sequels: Friday The 13th. However, whereas it was definitely much more fun to play as Jason than any of the ill-fated camp counsellors in that game, Illfonic is aiming to strike a better balance this time. STICK AROUND In OPM #167, we covered the Predator’s armoury and abilities. For the members of the fireteam, any encounter with…
