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.

With the PS5 being available for over a year now, a decent number of horror games are available that make use of its power. And that means they can be scarier than ever thanks to more detailed visuals and less immersion-breaking loading screens. Many more are on their way, too, including some updates for older PS4 games. But just what are the best horror games on PS5?
