What are the best strategy games on PS5? If you’re more of a thinker than a doer, strategy games are probably more your speed. Fortunately, there are lots of options for tactical play on PS5.

Strategy games have been around for a long time, and have evolved into two main camps. You have turn-based strategy games, in which you and the enemy take turns to make your moves, and then there’s real-time strategy games, which have you and your opponents all advancing at once. While these are two fairly different flavours of strategy, they can both be deliciously rewarding when things work out in your favour.

On PS5, there are good examples of both these sub-genres. Possibly the highest profile turn-based strategy games on the console are Marvel’s Midnight Suns, developed by XCOM studio Firaxis, and Tactics Ogre Reborn. Meanwhile, some major real-time strategy titles include Tropico 6 and Anno 1800.

Whatever strategy games you enjoy, there are various options on PS5, and we need your help in picking the best of the best. As with all our other lists, this feature is based on your input. The games that appear here are ordered to align with your user ratings, meaning this is more your list than ours. If you want to see changes, you can cast your own ratings on any game, either by clicking the star on its page, or by using the below search bar to find strategy games you want to rate.

It’s worth noting that a game will need at least 10 ratings before it appears on this page. If your personal favourite tactical title is missing, it could be that it just hasn’t been rated enough times yet, so make your voices heard!

With all that said, let’s get to our list of best strategy games on PS5, as determined by you.
