Not so long ago, we couldn't even fathom hearing about PlayStation games coming to PC. Console exclusives drew a clear line between what owners of different platforms could and could not play. But with the advent of subscription services and a natural perspective shift within the industry, the thought of playing PS4 and PS5 games on PC is becoming less outlandish with each passing day.
Following the successful launch of Horizon Zero Dawn, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan signaled, earlier in 2021, that the publisher is looking into bringing more of its titles to PC. Staying on top of a year's releases is already difficult enough, which is why we've gathered in this article, all former PS4 and PS5 exclusive games that you can play now on PC, as well as those that could potentially be coming later down the line.
PS Exclusives Available on PC
The list of PlayStation games on PC that are published by Sony or developed by its first-party studios isn't all that extensive at the moment, but does feature a handful of big hitters alongside some smaller titles. It will likely grow, hopefully at an increased pace, over the coming months and years.
Released on PC: December 7, 2015
Perhaps not the AAA blockbuster you'd expect to kick off this list, Helldivers is, nevertheless, a twin-stick shooter with a lot of heart and plenty of challenge. You can liberate its worlds on your own, but the promise of camaraderie and spontaneous fun brought on by the inclusion of friendly fire also make co-op an appealing prospect.
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
Released on PC: April 14, 2016
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is a first-person adventure game that blends open-world gameplay with non-linear storytelling. Set in the empty village of Yaughton, it's up to you to get to the bottom of what happened and why everyone seemingly left in such a hurry.
Released on PC: February 5, 2018
A free-to-play side-scrolling strategy game that first released on PlayStation before coming to PC, Guns Up! serves a healthy does of tower defense-fueled mayhem, tasking you with setting up defenses and managing your own, small cartoon army.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Released on PC: August 7, 2020
The first major PS4 exclusive to come to PC, Horizon Zero Dawn is an open-world action-RPG that follows Aloy, a member of an outcast tribe born into a world in which animals have been replaced by machines. It's not only visually impressive but also boasts a sprawling narrative and asks you to employ different tactics when taking down mechanical beasts of various sizes.
Predator: Hunting Grounds
Released on PC: August 7, 2020
Predator: Hunting Grounds is an asymmetrical shooter which lets you play as either the deadly extraterrestrial Yautja and wield its iconic tools, or as a member of a human military squad that's fighting for dear life deep within the jungle.
Released on PC: May 18, 2021
Days Gone follows bounty hunter Deacon St. John as he tries his hand at surviving in a post-pandemic Pacific Northwest wilderness. Facing both gangs of human opponents and ravenous zombie hordes, he counts on his trusty motorbike and his skill with weapons to stay alive.
PlayStation Exclusives Confirmed for PC
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is likely the next PS exclusive that will arrive on PC. While it didn't get an 'official' announcement with all the typical bells and whistles, it is featured on the "More PC release planned" slide in a presentation aimed at Sony's investors. There's no word on when it might launch, but we're hoping it won't take too long.
Playstation Exclusives that Could (and Should) Come to PC
The list above is a good, if somewhat slow start, but there are many more Sony games that we hope are coming to PC, including quite a few series that have strengthened PlayStation's position in the industry.
- Uncharted (series)
- The Last of Us (series)
- God of War (original trilogy)
- God of War (2018)
- Marvel's Spider-Man
- Ratchet & Clank (series)
- LittleBigPlanet (series)
- inFamous (series)
- Ghost of Tsushima
- Horizon Forbidden West
- Gran Turismo Sport
- Gran Turismo 7
- Demon's Souls
Although the PS4 and PS5 games above would already require a serious time investment to play through, there's a case to be made for also seeing third-party titles like Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Returnal coming to PC in thee future.
We don't know how long it'll take for all these PS exclusives to come to PC, or if it's too optimistic to think it'll ever happen, but will update this article with any new details as soon as we learn more.
