We're a good way into 2021 now, and some of the more exciting games of the year are starting to show up. PlayStation 5 software has been a little on the quiet side, but over the next couple of months, some big titles are coming to give early adopters something to enjoy. So long as there are no more delays (fingers crossed!) we should be treated to a pretty decent slate of games in April and May. Let's have a look at what's coming over the next few weeks.

MLB The Show 21 - 20th April
Sony's yearly baseball sim is on the home stretch, and this iteration will be the first on PS5. The overall quality of these games is always high, so we're expecting this year's entry to be just as polished. In terms of changes, fielding has been given a dramatic overhaul, and the hitting and pitching systems have been tweaked as well. Exclusive to the PS5 version of the game is a stadium creator, and it should look great at 4K and 60 frames-per-second. Batter up!
Returnal - 30th April
Returnal is the next game from Housemarque, the creators of modern arcade classics like Resogun and Nex Machina. It's a third person shooter with rogue-like elements, meaning certain aspects change each time you play. Interwoven with that is a story about the mysterious main character, her past, and her desperate attempts to escape an alien world. The next PS5 exclusive, this is looking like a winner.
Resident Evil Village - 7th May
Resident Evil Village — or Resident Evil 8 — is almost upon us. Set after the events of the previous game, Ethan Winters and his wife are living in peace in a new home, but of course, things take a sinister turn. With the mysterious Lady Dimitrescu and her daughters awaiting in an enormous castle, this new game looks to be another seriously twisted survival horror experience, and we can't wait.
