Push Square Readers’ 20 Most Anticipated PS5 Games for the Second Half of 2024

Given that there were so many games to choose from, we’ve decided to round up the 20 best for this article. In descending order, they are as follows…

20. Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars – 71 votes (1%)
19. Yes X: Nordics – 72 votes (1%)
18. Dragon Ball: The Spark! Zero – 74 votes (1%)
17. Sonic X Shadow Generations – 80 votes (1%)
16. EA Sports College Football 25 – 86 votes (1%)
15. Visions of Mana – 90 votes (1%)
14. Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 – 99 votes (2%)
13. Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2 – 100 votes (2%)
12. Life is Strange: Double Exposure – 130 votes (2%)
11. Dragon Quest 3 Remake HD-2D – 151 votes (2%)

10. The Plucky Squire – 176 votes (3%)

Squire Plucky

The Plucky Squire has looked great since his initial reveal, and it’s actually pretty exciting to see him get so many votes. This is set to be an incredibly creative platform adventure that takes place in both 2D and 3D space. We are praying that the game lives up to the lovingly crafted visuals.

9. Warhammer 40k: Space Marine 2 – 213 votes (3%)

Warhammer 40k Space Marines 2

The jump from The Plucky Squire to Space Marine 2 is about as arduous as it gets, but the variety is the highlight of the PS5’s life, we suppose. This third-person action shooter has been looking glorious and glorious for months now, perfectly capturing that gritty Warhammer 40k aesthetic. Packing a full single-player or co-op campaign, a unique mission-based co-op mode, and even team-based PvP, we could be looking at one of the most powerful releases of 2024.

8. LEGO Horizon Adventures – 283 votes (4%)

LEGO Horizon Adventures

Horizon is definitely a big deal here at PlayStation Nation, so it’s not a huge surprise to see its LEGO adaptation take a spot in the top ten. This fun take on Aloy’s robot-hunting escapades could breathe unexpected life into the franchise, and we’re sure it’ll be filled with fun ideas and cheeky nods to the mainstream games.

7. Metaphor: ReFantazio – 292 votes (4%)

Metaphor ReFantazio

Atlus’ new RPG is shaping up to be special, and its placement on this list suggests that expectations are understandably high. A strange and potentially wonderful fantasy adventure, the previews for this one have been blindingly positive. Featuring a gorgeous art style (what else would you expect?), and a whole bunch of Persona and Shin Megami Tensei-type RPG mechanics, it’s hard to imagine a future where Metaphora Its not a sure hit with fans of the genre.

6. Dragon Age: The Veilguard – 294 votes (4%)

Dragon Age Veilguard

Dragon Age: Veilguard coming in at number six on this list says a lot about how opinions can change. The game’s reveal trailer was nothing short of a disaster, but BioWare worked hard to turn things around, showing off a decent gameplay demo before dropping a lot of great-sounding details. Now look, The Veilguard isn’t going to be a throwback to the grand old days of Origins or even Dragon Age 2, but its focus on action combat and a more mission-based structure could lead to the kind of refresh it needs the series.

5. Silent Hill 2 – 330 votes (5%)

Silent Hill 2

Would a brand new Silent Hill game be number five on this list? We’re not so sure – but that’s the power of remasters and remakes. Silent Hill 2 is definitely a known quantity, and while there are still questions about the tone and atmosphere of the remake, it’s clear that horror fans are eager to relive a classic. We hope that Bloober Team, with Konami playing the role of overseer, will give the original the return it deserves.

4. Assassin’s Creed Shadows – 423 votes (6%)

Assassin's Creed Shadows

With Assassin’s Creed Mirage returning the series to its roots last year, now is the time for Assassin’s Creed Shadows to push the franchise forward again. Finally taking players to feudal Japan – one of the best, if not the best THE The most sought-after setting of Assassin’s Creed — Shadows should be another immersive open-world adventure. With two playable characters offering different play styles, this has the potential to be Ubisoft’s most innovative historical escape in a long time.

3. Black Myth: Wukong – 492 votes (7%)

The Myth of Black Wukong

Once thought to be little more than a tech demo that would never blossom into a full game, Black Myth: Wukong is real – and its release isn’t far off. An action game based on Journey to the West, Wukong has looked impressive for a long time. Even better, those who have actually played it say it’s brilliant – a challenging but super satisfying brawler filled with perfectly designed enemies. It’s no surprise at all to see it take such a high spot on this list.

2. Star Wars Outlaws – 539 votes (8%)

Star Wars Outlaws

Two Ubisoft games in the top five? The French publisher must be doing something right. Almost anything with a Star Wars the logo will always be familiar, but it certainly helps the Outlaws look the part. This is the first proper open world Star Wars game, offering an adventure that spans many planets and includes all kinds of game mechanics. Now, while there’s a chance that Outlaws will end up feeling a bit… tired in its structure, we can see the visuals and exploratory freedom doing a lot of the heavy lifting.

1. Astro Bot – 1,163 votes (18%)

Astro Bot

Well, in the end, this was barely a competition. Astro Bot has absolutely destroyed the other games on this list, pulling in over 1,000 votes while everything else has struggled to garner half that. The Asobi team is finally making a full PS5 platformer with everyone’s favorite little robot at the helm, and the hype is palpable. It may not be the mega-budget, AAA, cinematic PS5 franchise that Sony usually saves for the later months of a year, but Astro Bot may still be pure PlayStation Studios joy from start to finish.
