The PlayStation 4 doesn’t seem to have quite as impressive of a launch line-up as expected, and with Infamous: Second Son, The Order: 1886, and an abundance of highly anticipated indie titles scheduled for the “launch window,” the PlayStation 4 will be home to mostly third-party software for a short while. With the Xbox One to compete with, and strong exclusives such as Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Titanfall, the PlayStation 4 needs all the exclusive content it can get.
Luckily, Sony isn’t playing any games with their launch game lineup, and what they lack in numbers, they more than make up for in exclusivity. PlayStation 4 will be receiving exclusive content from 20 third-party developers and publishers, who have partnered with Sony to make the PlayStation 4 the console to own this year. While it’s likely that announcements for additional PlayStation 4 exclusives are on the way, Sony supporters will still need something to do until the inevitable Uncharted 4 is given a release date.
The full list of games receiving exclusive content:
- Activision Blizzard (Diablo III)
- Bethesda Softworks (The Elder Scrolls Online exclusive PlayStation 4 beta)
- Bluepoint Games (Unspecified “Sony classic” title)
- Bungie (Destiny)
- Capcom (Deep Down)
- Disney Interactive
- Insomniac Games
- Nordic Games
- Sanzaru Games
- Square Enix
- Sumo Digital
- Take-Two (including Rockstar Games)
- Ubisoft (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Watch Dogs)
- Warner Bros. (Batman: Arkham Origins)
- Zindagi Games
