Sony’s PS5 FAQ Confirms Games Are Region Free And More

With Sony’s PS5 launch just days away the company today published what it calls the “Ultimate FAQ” and it might actually be right with that definition. There are tons of things to take in here and it’s difficult to believe that a question has gone unanswered.

But there are a couple of tidbits that are worth checking out.

The first is confirmation that PS5 games will not be region locked, meaning anyone can buy a game from anywhere on the planet and have it play on their console at home.

Are PS5 games region-locked?


Short and sweet!

There’s also a full list of launch day titles, too.

In terms of first-party titles, here’s what Sony has going down.

  • Astro’s Playroom (Japan Studio) (Pre-installed on PS5)
  • Demon’s Souls (SIE Worldwide Studios, Bluepoint Games)
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (Insomniac Games)
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (included with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition) (Insomniac Games)
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure (Sumo Digital)

Moving over to the first-party list and things are more impressive, although some of these games aren’t new but rather updates to existing titles.

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Ubisoft)
  • Borderlands 3 (2K)
  • Bugsnax (Young Horses)
    Note: available at launch on PlayStation 5 to PlayStation Plus subscribers at no extra cost until January 4, 2021!
