Sony wrapped up the first day of press conferences early yesterday morning, and here’s what they had to show! Whilst there weren’t many new announcements, there were plenty of embellishments to previous titles!
UNCHARTED – THE LOST LEGACY GOT A NEW TRAILER
The show opened with a weird musical number and an actual waterfall on stage! It then gave way to a brand new Lost Legacy trailer, focusing on Nadine and Chloe once again. This game is looking gorgeous, and it’s out soon too!
HORIZON ZERO DAWN DLC CONFIRMED
A nice surprise here showed off an entirely new area for Aloy to explore in The Frozen Wilds expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn. One of the best games to hit this year, we can’t wait for this DLC to hit so we can get back into the game! New robots, new areas, new costumes, bring it on!
DAYS GONE LETS YOU FIGHT ZOMBIE BEARS
Zombie. Bears. The Days Gone demo ended with a horrifying glimpse at what the outbreak of… well… whatever it is in the game. It also showed off a lot more of the intricacies of the gameplay of what we saw last year. This showed a bit more of the biking gameplay, as well as a bit more of the stealth mechanics. One particular highlight was when the horde of “Freakers” was used as a weapon against an enemy gang. Check out the new trailer below
MONSTER HUNTER WORLD IS COMING TO PS4
Capcom’s mega-franchise is coming to the PS4 soon with a new title – That’s… That’s kinda all I need to say about it, I guess. I’m not the biggest fan of it, but if you’re into that kind of thing, check it out!
SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS IS COMING TO PS4!
Amazing news – one of the biggest surprises of E3, and one of the best games of the PS2 era, Shadow of the Colossus is coming to the new generation! This is a full-on remake, with all assets being regenerated for the PS4. A fantastic announcement!
MARVEL VS CAPCOM INFINITE GETS A FREE DEMO!
Capcom’s mashup fighting franchise got a new trailer, and a free demo for everyone to play the new story mode well ahead of time!
CALL OF DUTY: WWII LOOKS REALLY, REALLY GOOD
World War 2 never looked so appealing. The stunning new trailer for COD’s latest instalment dropped in Sony’s presser and it looked absolutely astonishing!
VR ISN’T DEAD!
Plenty of PSVR announcements were made in an impressive sizzle reel of games, including Skyrim VR, The Inpatient (from SuperMassive), Moss (a weird game about a mouse), Bravo Team (A shooter using the Aim controller), Final Fantasy XV Fishing and a bunch more! PSVR Lives!
MORE GOD OF WAR GAMEPLAY
God of War got a new trailer, including some beautiful (yet brutal) looking new gameplay. No firm release date yet, but it’s coming early next year.
DETROIT BECOMES MORE HUMAN
Detroit: Become Human got a new trailer, with Jesse Williams being unveiled as another playable character. Looks like a massive android uprising is on the cards in the futuristic thriller from Quantic Dream! Sadly there wasn’t even a hint of a release date, but we can but hope it’s not too far out… Right?
DESTINY 2 EXCLUSIVE CONTENT CONFIRMED
Unsurprisingly, Destiny 2 gets some PS4 exclusive content, including a Strike, and some cosmetic stuff, as well as a new exotic weapon. I’m sure Nick and Nico will go through it all in Destination Destiny this week, so I’ll leave that to them 😉
DOES WHATEVER A SPIDER CAN
Insomniac’s Spider-Man brought the curtain down on Sony’s show, with a gorgeous gameplay demo. Keeping the sense of humour you’d expect for Spidey, with a whole lot of Arkham-style mechanics brought in for good measure, this looks like it’s going to be a must-have exclusive for the console when it launches in 2018.
And that was it! Sony’s show was short, sweet and slightly lacking in “megatons”, but the pre-show also contained some news that Super Hot VR is coming to PSVR, so colour me happy.
