GTA 5 has been a generation-defining game in many aspects. With the sheer size of the open world, the ability to switch between three protagonists, countless activities, a great story, and amazing side missions, GTA 5 is nothing short of a beloved title.

Rockstar Games is set to launch GTA 5 fully compatible PS5 later this year. It will have features like ray-tracing, controls taking advantage of the PS5 dual-sense controller, better frame rates and graphics, and a ton of other additions.

Before GTA 5 is released for the PS5, players should explore the following GTA-like games for the console.

These PS5 games are just like GTA 5

1) Watch Dogs Legion

Watch Dogs Legion is the third installment in the series. It was one of the most anticipated video games of 2020. The title has a good open-world map design like GTA 5, which gives players the freedom to do anything.

Watch Dogs Legion has managed to somewhat live up to the hype as well as players’ expectations. It features a brand new storyline with new characters and the ability to play as anyone by recruiting them in the “Resistance.”


2) Cyberpunk 2077

One of the most anticipated games of the decade, Cyberpunk 2077, was finally launched by CD Projekt RED last December.
