Sony's Future of Gaming event announcements, while wide and varied, were just the tip of a gaming iceberg. And while much hype was quite rightly generated by the unveiling of a heap of exclusive new titles to go along with the console itself, dozens of more games are planned to arrive to co-incide with, and follow, the launch of the PS5, many of which will be available to play on the next-gen console only.

Taking advantage of the giant steps forward the console's development will represent in personal gaming, they're set to achieve new benchmarks in immersion, storytelling and interactive entertainment, while re-imagining long-loved gaming experiences from franchises we already know.

Here's every major title we know so far that's set to land on the PS5 at launch and beyond.
