Best FPS Games to Get for the PS5

  • Metro Exodus
Metro Exodus

Even though Metro Exodus is available to play on the PS4, the PS5 DualSense controller allows gamers to feel more immersed in the actual game. It is a story-driven game that combines deadly combat and stealth with survival and adventure.

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Another game that is also available on the previous generation console, but provides a better experience on the PS5 is of course Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Call of Duty has always and will probably be a huge fan-favorite for FPS gamers. Whether it is to play the story mode or multiplayer, fans love this franchise despite the number of complaints they may make.

  • Deathloop

This follows the protagonist, Cole, as he goes on a death loop. Simply speaking, each time Cole dies, his death is looped and he returns to life. However, with each death, he retains the necessary information received which makes it easier to defeat his opponents. A perfect choice for FPS fans to get their hands on and promises to be worthwhile.

  • Destiny 2

This one has been around for a while, but Destiny 2 promises not to disappoint on the PS5. The shooting mechanics are further enhanced by the console’s adaptation of 60 frames per second. This allows the overall gameplay to feel even smoother which then makes it even more enjoyable.

  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
Skins in Rainbow Six Siege

Last, but definitely not least, one of the most popular FPS games currently around. Rainbow Six Siege puts teamwork at the forefront as teammates must work together to defeat the enemy squad. From setting traps to using decoys or simply flanking the enemy, this is the perfect FPS game to load up onto your PS5.

There aren’t many options for FPS games currently on the PS5, however, there’s plenty to come so keep on the lookout.
