If you’ve managed to get your hands on a PS5 and love a good scare, chances are you’ll want the best horror games available on the format.

When it comes to horror games on PS5, however, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that because the PS5 is still relatively new, there are few native horror games for it. Even worse, those that are available aren’t great on the whole. The good news? The PS5’s backwards compatibility with PS4 means that there are still loads of fantastic horror games playable on PS5, and many of them benefit from upgraded visuals and frame rates when played on the format. And so you might be wondering what are the best horror games on PS5 right now?
