Jim Ryan stated recently that one of PlayStation’s new goals, outside of their already staggering market dominance, would be mindshare and that they were looking to make some noise.
With that in mind, here are all of the announcements from this morning’s PlayStation Games Showcase.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Is Shaping Up To Be One Hell Of A Sequel
This trailer did a lot. I mean everything except confirm a date, which has long-rumoured to be September.
PlayStation Announced Their Streaming Device Project Q
It features all of the DualSense capabilities while including an 8″ screen. It’ll stream games from your console, which is certainly rad.
We’re Getting The Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Remake After All
They definitely kept us waiting, huh? As the title has what is essentially a triangle in the title, it’s tough to transcribe. But let it be known, it got a pop from all on the call.
Metal Gear Solid’s Master Collection Vol. 1 Is Coming To PlayStation 5 This Year
This collection bundles the first three games in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, which will be handy for those like me who’ve never played them. Shameful, I know.
Bungie Has Announced Their Marathon Reboot
It looks bloody synthy, and you know how we feel about synthy. The game is said to be a PVP extraction shooter and is also multiplatform with full crossplay and cross-save.
Bungie Also Showed Off A Beautiful Trailer For Destiny 2: The Final Shape
This lovely trailer, which confirmed the long-rumoured return of Nathan Fillion’s Cayde-6, also confirmed a showcase that is happening on August 22.
Remedy Wasn’t Kidding When They Said Alan Wake II Would Be Horror
We Got A Good Look At Basim’s Journey In Assassin’s Creed: Mirage
Everything that has been promised, a return to stealth and the series’ roots, appears to be evident in this punchy gameplay trailer. The game is also coming out in October, which is already looking stacked.
Fairgame$ Looks Fair-Okay
The first post-acquisition effort from Haven Studios has all the trimmings of a live-service game all dressed up as a Robin Hood-esque “eat the rich” narrative. It’s described as a competitive heist game where you’ll visit exotic locations to capture the cargo.
Helldivers 2 Is A Big Change On The Original
Out of the team at Arrowhead, Helldivers 2 looks to a much more robust, traditionally third-person action game. The game is coming to PlayStation 5 and PC this year.
Immortals Of Aveum Combines Might And Magic
I must say, this is the prettiest and most expensive-looking EA Originals title we’ve seen yet. The game is set to launch July 20.
Ghostrunner 2 Looks To Go Beyond The Tower
One More Level dropped a teaser trailer for their Ghostrunner sequel that seemingly goes beyond the constraints of the tower that housed the entire first game. Amazingly, it’s set to launch this year.
Phantom Blade 0 Is Yet Another Ninja Game
Steeped in myth and fantasy, this game looks like it’s a frenetic, fast-paced action-slasher that’ll do enough to separate itself from the million other games like this we’ve seen emerge in the last couple of years.
