Persona 5 Strikers – PS4



An action RPG title featuring the characters and with a storyline that follows on from Persona 5. While not listed as a direct sequel, the storyline is quite reliant on knowledge of the events and characters from Persona 5, so those who haven’t played it might struggle to understand some of the characters and backstory. Persona 5 Strikers is made by a different developer, Omega Force, and instead of the turn based combat of the original title, has real-time action RPG combat. The game got good reviews when released with praise for its storyline, visual style and music. If you have played Persona 5 and haven’t picked up this title then this might just be your best opportunity to give it a try.


Dirt 5 – PS4 & PS5



An off-road driving game with over 70 routes across 10 locations. The game has a single player career mode and allows up to four players to play in split screen multiplayer, as well as the expected online multiplayer option. The tracks will have you driving on many different surface types including, ice, snow, gravel and sand. If you like racing games and haven’t picked this one up then it should be well worth a download. Feel free to check out the trailer above to see what else Dirt 5 has to offer.


Deep Rock Galactic – PS4 & PS5



A 1 to 4 player co-operative FPS. The game takes place in complete destructible environments, in which you can dig and explore the procedurally generated network of caves while fighting hordes of alien monsters.
