With just a few weeks to go until Christmas it’s time to start thinking about what gifts to buy for friends and family. If you’re buying for someone who has managed to get hold of a PS5 then they’ll probably be wishing for some new games this year.

Like the Xbox Series X, the PS5 has a backwards compatibility feature to allow it to play games from the previous console. There are many fantastic PS4 games to choose from that will work on PS5.

Below we’ve tried to focus on the newer games that are designed for PS5, or those that get a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5.

Stay tuned to EF for other Christmas 2020 Gift Guides over the coming days.
