15 Upcoming PS4 Exclusives of 2020

Visit our list of Upcoming PS4 games for the full catalog

1. Marvel's Iron Man VR

Tony Stark's legacy lives on outside Marvel's Cinematic Universe. With the VR's history of giving people motion sickness, it's safe to say that taking on the adventures of the high-flying Avenger is quite a feat on the platform. But, seeing the feedback from the trailers and especially from gamers who experienced the demo, Camouflaj's Iron Man VR is a promising title.

Put on the famous Iron Man suit and fly through the skies in battles with drones, and a "ghost" from Tony's past. Sure, it's not quite the full-on Triple-A title like Spider-Man recently had, but this is an awesome first step towards that.

It’s coming out exclusively on the PlayStation 4 on February 28th.

2. Final Fantasy VII Remake

One of next year’s biggest titles is the comeback of everyone’s favorite brooding super soldier wielding a massive sword. Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII Remake takes us once again into the beautiful yet corrupted Midgar controlled by a greedy corporation.

Rebuilt from the ground up, play FFVII with realistic graphics, improved character models, and gameplay completely reinvented for the modern audience. Relive the adventures of Cloud and friends as they stop the evil Shinra from destroying their precious homeworld.

Only Chapter 1 of the bigger picture, the game comes out on the 3rd of March, 2020

3. NiOh 2

The first game was already a pretty flawless experience for a hybrid hack and slash game. Now that a full-on sequel is coming up, everyone’s pretty excited to see exactly what’s in store. Revealing more details in the recent Tokyo Game Show, it looks like Team Ninja's Nioh 2 is going to be a prequel with a standalone story.

Play a customized character that’s part human, part yokai and venture around the new Dark Realms with great Japanese warlords like Hideyoshi. It’s still essentially a singleplayer experience. However, the improved multiplayer which allows up to three players will definitely make the Yokai battles that much easier.

It's set to release on March 13, 2020

4. The Last of Us: Part II

Everyone who has a PlayStation 4 will probably know by now that the sequel to one of Sony's most beloved titles is finally coming out on the console next year. By then, it'll be more than five years since the first game and everyone’s itching to find out what else the post-apocalypse has in store.

Not only do we get to see the continuation, at least, of Ellie's adventures in the post-apocalypse, it's also going to be presented in the unbelievably high detail that's made possible on the PlayStation 4. Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II will also pack upgrades on traversal mechanics which will bring verticality to the stealth missions and takedowns.

Hit by a delay, we'll finally witness it all once it releases on May 29, 2020

5. Persona 5 The Royal

Atlus already made strides with Persona 5 in 2017, but in 2020, they're bringing us a definitive version of the Phantom Thieves' story. A lot is packed into this new game, including a new Phantom Thief, an entire semester of gameplay, brand new locales, and a personal palace you can customize as you see fit.

Relationships play an important part in Persona 5's DNA, and there'll be new ways of developing them in Royal. There's the expansion of the phone call system to make way for making actual conversation, and also allowing players to give gifts to male confidants.

Unfortunately, we still don't know when it's dropping next year.

6. Predator: Hunting Grounds

This upcoming game based on the Predator movie isn't exactly making the best impressions. Especially not with graphics that seem a little too outdated for the console. On the other hand, it still offers an exciting double look at being both vulnerable human hunters and the Predator himself.

Developer Illfonic is already well-known for creating the asymmetrical co-op game, Friday the 13th. Now they're making use of their expertise in creating the same experience with the Predator license.

It's a big win for the fans of the franchise and it's coming sometime in 2020.

7. Granblue Fantasy Versus

The first of two Granblue Fantasy games coming to the PlayStation 4. Granblue Fantasy Versus is a spinoff multiplayer fighting game that's coming into fruition through Bandai Namco and famed studio, Arc System Works.

With such big names coming through for the title, you know it's gonna be filled with their signature flashy and seamless animations. Favorite Granblue characters like Gran, Katalina, Charlotta, and Ferry have already been confirmed for the roster. But, just recently, we also got to take sneak peek at Vaseraga and the lovely Zeta.

No official release window has been announced but its set to release sometime in 2020.

8. MLB The Show 20

Sony's exclusive baseball franchise has been consistently hitting the mark. With MLB The Show 19, they gave us a new gold standard in the baseball genre so it's intriguing to see how they top it this year.

MLB The Show 20 features Javier Baez on its cover and will aim to improve the baseball experience with new customizations and enhanced core gameplay. Everyone's been screaming for franchise updates but it doesn't look like there are many details on that regard.

Still, it's coming out soon sometime in 2020

9. Project Sakura Wars

The sixth in the mainline entries, Sonic Team's Project Sakura Wars plays like a soft reboot for the franchise. It's a mix of many different genres rolled into one. Take a step into a fictionalized Tasho period and join the Imperial Combat Revue as they fight demons and compete in a tournament of the world's combatants.

Part action, visual novel, and dating sim enjoy Project Sakura's rich storyline as you woo their cast of characters designed by Bleach artist Tite Kubo himself.

It's coming out Spring 2020

10. Wild

With so much at stake on the Beyond Good and Evil sequel, Michel Ancel has been pretty silent about his upcoming survival game that's supposed to come exclusively for the PS4. Where beyond good and evil is more space and sciencey, Wild Sheep's Wild deals with the more earthly theme of nature. Playing as a powerful shaman, you will get to harness the powers of "The Wild" by taking control of any animal available, each equipped with abilities you can take advantage of.

WiLD was announced more than three years ago in 2015. Four years after, there's still no news of a solid release date but sources speculate it might be a cross-generation release.

11. Granblue Fantasy: Relink

Unlike Versus with its concrete promise to release soon, this Granblue title's release is still up in the air. However, it's definitely the one to look out for. A spinoff from the main series, Platinum's Relink further explores the role-playing possibilities of the Granblue universe. Travel along with their party of heroes and embark on a journey riddled with ferocious monsters and terrifying bosses.

There's a lot of awesome art direction going on in this title, but for fans of the series, the revamped battle system might be the bigger draw. That, plus the four-player co-op and a soundtrack from Nobuo Uematsu himself.

With no release date yet, we'll have to make do with drooling over gameplay.

12. Ghost of Tsushima

Sucker Punch Productions’ fresh IP dives deep into the Japanese lore in Ghost of Tsushima. In Ghost of Tsushima, you take on the sandals of the Last Samurai, desperately fighting against the Mongol invasion in the year 1274.

You can definitely see the prestige of its PS4 exclusivity, with its quick, slick combat, awesome looking stealth scenes, and an atmosphere that's rich with detail and authenticity. There's still no news of a release date yet but with that much quality, it's gonna need a lot of time in the oven.

13. Deep Down

Capcom's dungeon crawler seems like it's been in development hell for years. First announced in 2013 during the launch of the PlayStation 4 console, there was a lot of buzz going on around the game because of its intriguing premise and beautiful visuals. Over the years though, the news about it has waned. However, CAPCOM's recent financial report shows their interest in reviving old and abandoned IPs. The chances of it being Deep Down might be slim, but we're still holding out some hope for the title.

14. AI-LIMIT

ChinaJoy2019 had an awesome spread of PlayStation 4 games and this is one of their promising new titles. As an action RPG with a seductive main character with awesome sword skills, Sense Game's AI LIMIT reminds a lot of people of Platinum Games' Nier: Automata. We only have a trailer so far but their overview promises a world of exploration, thrilling battles, and an array of customizations in appearance and components.

While we don't know much so far, its gorgeous settings are definitely enough to stir some excitement. And hopefully, it releases in the west too.

15. ANNO: Mutationem

The Cyberpunk hype lives on in this retro-style game from the China Hero Project. Created out of a project that aims to invite local creators to develop for the PlayStation 4, Beijing ThinkingStars' ANNO is one eye-catching title. We only have a debut trailer so far but it's set the scene with previews of intense melee combat exploration of the Metropolis, on foot and maybe on flying cars.

No Western release date has been announced for the game yet, we're hoping Sony can convince them to make it go global.
