The rouge-like with a science fiction setting, in which the heroine Selene wakes up after each death and then has to penetrate a changed world with different and differently placed enemies, is coming to PS5 on April 30, 2021 (buy now ). It has a strong focus on the fast-paced combat system, but also on an interesting story in which we explore the protagonist's previous history. Be sure to read in this context our big interview with the developers!
Dodgeball meets Fortnite – that's how you could describe Knockout City. The characters have numerous special abilities, and the complexly designed maps allow all sorts of tricks. We have already been able to try the title. From May 21st, the PS5 and PS4 can be wildly clenched.

One of the new announcements at State of Play was Sifu, developed by the studio that also made Absolver. The special thing about Sifu is that it has decided to implement the martial art Kung Fu as detailed as possible and to pack it into an action adventure with comic graphics. The release is planned for 2021.
Announced a long time ago, there was now a good portion of gameplay from Solar Ash to see. In charming graphics you go through a colorful world and into the fight against huge creatures. At first glance, this is very reminiscent of Shadow of the Colossus. Solar Ash is due to appear in 2021.
Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach
The internet phenomenon Five Nights at Freddy's is moving away from the jumpscare simulators of most of its predecessors and sends you into a relatively classic 3D horror experience in Security Breach, in which we are chased by all kinds of malicious robot mascots. You can definitely look forward to a lot of absurd lore again. Release: 2021. Read our test on the VR offshoot of the series.

It feels like the remake of the second Oddworld game has been in development for ages. On April 6th it will finally be released and sends hero Abe on a mission to free the inhabitants of his world from the clutches of a diabolical company. The developers call the view in which you move through the game 2,9D, because although it usually goes from left to right, it also repeatedly moves into the foreground and background. Jump, solve physics puzzles, and more, all on PS5 with the help of the console's special features. And: PS Plus subscribers will receive the title for free in April!
Kena: Bridge of Spirits

One of the most surprising announcements for the PS5 reveal last year was the extremely charming looking Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Now there was more insight into the gameplay, the game world and the story of the adventure in the Pixar look. And also an appointment: on August 24th we can finally find out for ourselves whether the game has more to offer than just great trailers.
Although Bethesda and thus also Arkane Studios are now owned by Microsoft, their next game is still (time-) exclusively for the PS5. In Deathloop we gradually have to get to know a time loop better and better in order to eliminate eight enemy targets in just one run. It looks pretty stylish, but it doesn't have a fixed release date yet.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade

At the end of the State of Play there was a look at the PS5 implementation of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which bears the new subtitle Intergrade and will be released on June 10th. Nice: All owners of the PS4 version – read our test here – can upgrade for free. A new additional episode with Yuffie in the lead role is not free for upgraders, but if you buy the PS5 version directly, it is included for free. The PS5-FF7 offers improved graphics, a photo mode and of course the mandatory use of the dualsense features.
