- Borderland 3
- Fate 2

1. Death Loop
While Arkane Lyon no longer makes PlayStation games because they were acquired by Microsoft, it is perhaps quite fitting that their swan song for PlayStation 5 is Deathloop, a breathtakingly ambitious FPS that underscores the studio’s penchant for physical shooter goodness with elements of Roguelike design connects.
As an assassin trying to break a time warp on an island cutter built for nihilistic hedonism, Deathloop lets players relive the same day over and over – but gain new powers, hints and insights into history with each rise of the morning sun. Funny, crammed with clever dialogues, endlessly experimental and dripping with retrofuturism, Deathloop is as essential as it gets.
2. Metro Exodus
The third entry in the great Metro series from 4A Games storms on PS5 with stunning 4K graphics at 60 FPS, combined with a stunning implementation of ray traced lighting and reflections.
With added DualSense features, Metro Exodus on PS5 is the Russian post-apocalyptic horror FPS that you didn’t know you needed in your life before. You know what to do. Also, it doesn’t hurt that if you own the PS4 version of Metro Exodus, you can get the PS5 upgrade for free. Beautiful!
3. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Activision’s latest entry into its long-running Call of Duty franchise is also one of the best. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War features a series-best single-player campaign that takes players back to the eponymous Cold War of the 1980s, the return of the zombies, and a series of interconnected multiplayer modes to this day.
On PlayStation 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War absolutely sings even. This is not least thanks to the support of 120 FPS, ray tracing at 4K resolution and the full use of the haptic feedback of the DualSense controller so that you can feel the resistance and repulsion of every shot fired. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is currently the best PS5 FPS money can buy.
4. Frontier 3
It is fitting that one of the best looter shooters of the last generation of consoles is also one of the best shooters on PlayStation 5. Borderlands 3 brings the action RPG / FPS formula of the Borderlands franchise by Gearbox Software up to date and lets players tear through a variety of alien worlds, the bad guys to rubble, pick up their loot and crack it wisely.
As a PlayStation 5, Borderlands 3 benefits greatly from the jump to the current generation of consoles from Sony. As if the 120 FPS graphics and haptic feedback from DualSense weren’t enough, Borderlands 3 also fully supports local co-op for four players on PlayStation 5. Put simply, if you want to play a rib-busting looter shooter with your friends that lasts for hundreds of hours, you can’t go wrong with Borderlands 3 on PS5.
5. Destiny 2
Bungie’s hybrid action RPG shooter, Destiny 2, has grown stronger since its launch in 2017. By cleverly merging shooter RPG gameplay and mechanics with a deep, cross-galaxy narrative, Destiny 2 remains as important as ever to shooter fans.
Freshly encouraged by greatly improved graphics and Destiny 2’s new free options, Destiny 2 on PS5 remains a commendable great shooter for Sony’s newest piece of gaming silicon.
6. Rainbow Six Siege
As one of the most popular online shooters of the last generation of consoles, Rainbow Six Siege storms in fine, final form on Sony’s PlayStation 5 console.
Still unparalleled as a tactical shooter, Rainbow Six Siege is an oceanic squad-based FPS in which players must work together to defeat the opposing team. Rainbow Six Siege is one of the most engaging and thoughtful shooters you can get on PS5.
There aren’t many PS5 FPS games available right now, but stay tuned as we keep adding this feature.
