The PlayStation 5 has been out for over two years now and there are some excellent titles for Sony's next-gen system. The PS5 can play games in full 4K and at 60 frames per second.

These are ideal settings for racing gaming, as the picture is crystal clear and the frame rate is silky smooth.

Gran Turismo 7

When you think about racing games on PlayStation, Gran Turismo is always the first that comes to mind. After years of waiting, Gran Turismo 7 was finally released earlier this year and it didn't disappoint!

This is one of the most realistic racing simulators on console and has a huge array of cars and circuits to choose from. The revamped single player GT cafe mode also makes progression so satisfying to achieve.

Regular updates from Polyphony add more to the game every month, with weekly "GT Daily races" always providing new challenges too.

When it comes to a complete racing experience on PS5, you can't do much better than GT7!

F1 22

We'll be the first to admit that F1 22 is a step down from F1 2021, but it's still one of the best racing games of 2022.

That's partly because it's one of the official games of the 2022 Formula 1 season, the fastest racing series in the world.

Games modes like the innovative My Team keep us coming back for hours at a time. That's not to mention the Formula 2 cars as well, which we always enjoy racing as well.

Codemasters bring regular updates to F1 22, meaning that the potential for new circuits, cars, liveries, drivers and more is always there.

Wreckfest

You may be surprised to see a four-year-old game on this list, but that's a testament to how good Wreckfest is. There's no game like this on the market, and it got an upgrade to PS5 last year.

Wreckfest is a beautiful representation of pure carnage, as you race, drift and smash your way to victory. This is a racing game that those who normally don't like racing games, it's irresistibly fun.

WRC Generations

We're so sad that this will be Kylotonn's last WRC game, but boy, did they go out on a high! This is the official game of the 2022 World Rally Championship season and as such, includes all of the stages, cars and drivers.

This is the most realistic rally game out there and is both challenging and entertaining in equal measure. There's also a good amount of classic content available too, including legendary drivers, cars and some of the best stages from down the years.

Assetto Corsa Competizione

We said that Gran Turismo 7 is one of the most realistic racing simulators on the PS5, because Assetto Corsa Competizione gives it a run for its money. ACC is a pure racing sim that focuses on high-performance sports cars.

ACC was originally released back in 2019, but got a next-gen upgrade earlier this year. That means that the graphics, sound and overall experience is one of the best in racing games.

ACC will continue to receive regular updates to keep the game fresh until Assetto Corsa 2 is due to be released in 2024.
