Image: Push Square

Near the end of last year, we asked the Push Square community to vote for their most anticipated PS5 games of 2024. Over 11,500 votes were cast across 50 games, and it's fair to say that the results are very tightly packed.

Below, we've gathered the top 20, based on your votes. We've also included the number of votes and percentage of the total vote per game.

Thanks to everyone who took part!

20. Little Nightmares 3 - 186 votes (2%)
19. The Plucky Squire - 187 votes (2%)
18. Helldivers 2 - 210 votes (2%)
17. Granblue Fantasy: Relink - 228 votes (2%)
16. Pacific Drive - 229 votes (2%)
15. Alone in the Dark - 235 votes (2%)
14. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League - 247 votes (2%)
13. Metaphor: ReFantazio - 256 votes (2%)
12. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown - 298 votes (3%)
11. Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 - 300 votes (3%)

10. Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered Starring Lara Croft - 330 votes (3%)

Tomb Raider Remastered

Another fine example of nostalgia being an incredibly powerful tool, the original PS1 Tomb Raider trilogy is getting the re-release treatment, complete with slightly better looking textures. Snark aside, though, we're still surprised that this remastered collection is so high on the list. Here's hoping that this turns out to be the top quality revival that Ms. Croft deserves.

9. Tekken 8 - 333 votes (3%)

Tekken 8

We're with you on this one — Tekken 8 looks fantastic. It's been almost seven whole years since Tekken 7 hit PS4, and this PS5 sequel really does look like the generational leap forward that players have been asking for. With 32 characters at launch, a full suite of single-player modes, and modernised online netcode (we hope!), Tekken 8 should be a knockout.

8. Persona 3 Reload - 467 votes (4%)

Persona 3 Reload

The remake of a truly beloved RPG, Persona 3 Reload has looked pretty much spot on in all of the gameplay previews we've seen up until this point. In particular, we're looking forward to a much improved turn-based combat system that clearly takes a lot of cues from Persona 5's incredibly stylish effort. All signs point to this being an early 2024 treat for both returning players and newcomers to the Dark Hour.

7. The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered - 542 votes (5%)

The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered

Hold on, how is this here? Going by all your comments, we thought no one actually wanted a remaster of The Last of Us Part 2? Yet here we are in seventh place, with a whopping 542 votes. Now look, we know The Last of Us Part 2 isn't even that old and we know that the PS4 version already runs brilliantly on PS5, but that new survival mode looks banging, doesn't it? And hey, the $10 upgrade path probably silenced a lot of criticism as well.

6. Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth - 554 votes (5%)

Like a Dragon Infinite Wealth

RGG Studio seems to have thrown everything at Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. It somehow looks even more insane than Yakuza: Like a Dragon, with perfectly dumb protagonist Ichiban waking up naked on the shores of Honalulu. Promising better turn-based battles, yet more job variety, and a shocking degree of dedication to stupidly in-depth side activities, Infinite Wealth is practically nailed on as one of 2024's finest. Don't let us down, Ichiban!

5. Black Myth: Wukong - 704 votes (6%)

Black Myth Wukong

A sentence that once seemed completely unrealistic: Black Myth: Wukong is actually on the horizon. Game Science's stunning action game finally got a release date at last year's The Game Awards, and while there's still plenty of time for the project to be hit with yet another delay, you lot are quite clearly hyped for this Chinese mythology-based adventure. Indeed, there's a good reason why everyone seems to lose their mind when a new Wukong gameplay video pops up.

4. Dragon's Dogma 2 - 789 votes (7%)

Dragon's Dogma 2

Dropping a lot sooner than many anticipated, Dragon's Dogma 2 could honestly take fantastical action RPGs to another level. At this point, there's no reason not to trust in Capcom's action game expertise, and this sequel already has an exemplary template to build upon. For our money, the original Dragon's Dogma is still one of the greatest action RPGs that money can buy — and so the thought of a full-blown follow-up is enough to make us drool. And you agree, apparently!

3. Rise of the Ronin - 834 votes (7%)

Rise of the Ronin

A PS5 exclusive from Team Ninja, Rise of the Ronin has been rather reluctant to step out from the shadows — but the lack of information hasn't stopped it from cleaving its way into the top three of your most anticipated games list. The samurai resurgence that Ghost of Tsushima kickstarted is still alive and well, it seems, and with such an experienced development team behind it, we've got high hopes for Rise of the Ronin.

2. Star Wars Outlaws - 1,070 votes (9%)

Star Wars Outlaws

Ubisoft Massive's ambitious open world take on Star Wars has come close to topping this most anticipated games list, which we suppose is testament to how good the project's gameplay previews have looked. While we're not totally convinced Outlaws will actually make it out in 2024 — it was previously delayed beyond March — we get why it's racked up so many votes; the promise of a proper open world adventure set in the Star Wars universe is always going to pull people's attention. Let's hope it eventually delivers!

1. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth - 1,595 votes (14%)

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Leading the list by some distance, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is the Push Square community's most anticipated PS5 game of 2023. And we think that's quite impressive, because Square Enix could have so easily botched the return of Cloud and co. with Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but here we are, eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this promised trilogy. Quite frankly, we can't wait to see how things pan out in Rebirth, both from a story perspective and in terms of gameplay evolution. Don't cock this up, Square.

So there you have it — these are Push Square readers' most anticipated games of 2024. Are you happy with the order? Would you swap anything around? Share your hype for the year ahead in the comments section below.
