The PlayStation 4 has already received multiple great exclusives this year with the latest being Uncharted 4 which has been described as a near perfect game by reviewers and fans alike. There are even more games set to be released for the PlayStation 4 within the year. Here's a list of 5 games you can expect to be able to enjoy on your PS4 later in 2016.
1. Gravity Rush 2
Gravity Rush was a an action-adventure game originally released for the PlayStation Vita in 2012. It featured a very unique gameplay concept which allowed players to manipulate gravity. This meant that the main character, Kat, would be performing movements unlike any other character from any other game. The sequel will feature the same unique gameplay mechanics and continue the story where the first game left off. Gravity Rush 2 is set to be released sometime in 2016.
2. The Last Guardian
The Last Guardian is possibly the most mysterious of all the games Sony has ever developed. It's amazing how little we know about it considering it has been in development since 2007. This is a third-person puzzle game in which the player controls a boy who has a companion bird/cat/griffin creature as his companion. The story will be based heavily around the bond between the boy and his companion as they go about their adventure. The Last Guardian has been officially announced to have a 2016 release.
3. Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is set in a post-apocalyptic future in which the world has been overrun by robotic creatures. In this action role-playing game, the player takes control of Aloy, an archer who takes on these gigantic "mecha-dinosaurs" as she travels through the stunningly beautiful, uniquely futuristic world. The gameplay of Horizon Zero Dawn has also been said to posses similarities to The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim as well as Assassin's Creed. Horizon Zero Dawn is due for release sometime in 2016.
4. No Man's Sky
Although there have been rumors stating that No Man's Sky will be available on Xbox One, it will launch as a console exclusive for the PlayStation 4. This game takes the open-world concept that countless games have adopted in the past and takes it far beyond the the absolute extreme. We thought that being able to travel around an entire planet would be extreme. No Man's Sky allows players to muck about in an entire universe consisting of about 18 quintillion planets with different landscapes, lifeforms and weather patterns. This is truly an amazing undertaking and one that I an definitely excited to experience for myself. No Man's Sky was announced to be released on the 21st of June 2016, however, it has since been delayed but is still scheduled for a 2016 release.
5. Gran Turismo Sport
What's there to say? It's a new GranTurismo Game! PlayStation Access posted a video revealing the details from the unveiling of GT Sport (Go watch that video here). From what Polyphony have revealed so far, the graphics are fantastically detailed with cars looking more realistic than ever before in the GT franchise. The game also includes "Vision" cars which are concept cars designed by GT along side car manufacturers. These cars will remain as GT exclusives and will only be available in the game. There will also be modes allowing players to compete against one another in their respective regions and be ranked accordingly. Each player will also have their own GT profile and activity log. These features can be viewed at any time via the game's companion app. It has also been confirmed that Gran Turismo Sport will support PlayStation VR at launch. Gran Turismo Sport will be released worldwide in mid-November 2016.
