If you are planning to get a brand-new PS5 but are afraid that you will not be able to play with your friends who are not ready to upgrade, you should be pleased to know that this is not the case.

PS5 and PS4 can play together. However, there is a rule. PS5 and PS4 users can only play together if they choose cross-generation games. Just like Xbox has its “backwards compatibility” program, Sony is doing something similar by launching cross-generation games that are available on PS4 and PS5. The games usually feature improved graphics that capitalize on the hardware improvements that PS5 offers. The list of cross-generation games is not that long right now, but we can be sure that Sony will keep adding popular titles to it. 

Let’s go ahead and check out what are the most popular cross-generation games that PS4 and PS5 can play together.
