E3: Sony Coverage

Sony just finished up their E3 press conference, and with that in mind let’s take a look at what we saw.

The Last of Us Part II

Sony’s presser began in a bit of a different setting than usual, and after a short introduction from Shawn Layden he passed things on to Gustavo Santaolalla for a performance to introduce The Last of Us Part II.

The Last of Us Part II began in a similar setting to that of the conference itself, with Ellie watching others dance as she stands by the bar. Soon enough, the scene changed and thinks look much bleaker as we move to a gameplay demo with Ellie in control. We saw Ellie sneak her way through a forest path as she tries to hide from a group of foes that are in the vicinity.

Soon enough she was caught and we saw a glimpse of the hand-to-hand combat before Ellie scurried off into hiding once again. The gameplay looks to have retained that cinematic edge that the previous entry had, and it looks great.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 4 has the spotlight next as we get a trailer highlighting four classic Black Ops maps that well be remade for Blacks Ops 4. These maps will also be available for Black Ops 3 if you pre-order Black Ops 4 on the Playstation Store. Not an owner of Black Ops 3? Fret not, as the game will be available for free to all PS+ members later today.

Destiny 2: Forsaken

Before we cut back to the showcase, we also got a trailer for Destiny 2: Forsaken. The upcoming expansion will release on September 4

Ghost of Tsushima

With the intermission over, we’re back with a musical introduction for Ghost of Tsushima. Afterwards, they moved on to a gameplay demo. We open to what looks to be a large world, the playable character has a horse that they can use to get around. The player quickly moves from the fields into a vast green forest environment and we get our first look at sword combat.

At this point, it was revealed that the playable character is called Jin. As he continued to search for a monk, we saw snippet of some stealth gameplay, as well as the traversal options that are in the game. Players will be able to do stealth takedowns from behind and above enemies.

This was a good showing for the game, although we didn’t see a release window of any sort so it looks like the game might still be far out from its release.

Control

Next up is a reveal trailer for Control, which is developed by Remedy and it looked a lot like Quantum Break. The game will release in 2019.

Resident Evil 2

Following this we saw a trailer that looked like a pest scurrying around a kitchen of some sort. That pest was a rat, and afterwards we saw a zombie attacking a police officer. It’s a trailer for the Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Resident Evil 2 will release January 29, 2019

Trover Saves the Universe

We got a trailer for Trover Saves the Universe, the latest project from Squanch Games. A sci-fi action comedy adventure, Trover Saves the Universe will be available for both PS4 and PSVR.

Kingdom Hearts III

Looks like we’re getting some more information on Kingdom Hearts III, and this trailer reveals the existence of a Pirates of the Caribbean world, and it’s probably my favourite world that we’ve seen so far.

In the trailer, we also got another look at some of the other worlds, including Hercules, Toy Story and the recently revealed Frozen world.

We also saw a Kingdom Hearts III themed PS4, and an announcement that all three past Kingdom Hearts titles will be available in a bundle on the Playstation Store.

Kingdom Hearts III will be available on January 29, 2019.

Death Stranding

Death Stranding makes an appearance next, and it looked like we finally got a glimpse of some gameplay alongside new cinematics. The gameplay portions featured Norman Reedus’ character traversing across the environment and we also saw a short stealth segment as he tried to avoid the invisible threat.

Nioh 2

Moving on from Death Stranding, Koei Tecmo made an appearance with a brief trailer for Nioh 2.

Spiderman

Insomniac’s Spiderman began with a short cinematic, with Spiderman being involved in a plane crash. We see Electro release a group of prisoners who are quick to attack Spiderman upon their release. Moving on to some combat, the game looks as good as ever.

It looks like we’ll be seeing quite a few villains in this game as Rhyno and Scorpion also appeared to make things difficult for Spiderman. We got to see an entertaining segment with Spiderman chasing Electro around the prison. Vulture showed up for a moment to impede Spiderman’s progress but it didn’t work too well.

I thought this was a great showing for Spiderman and a good game to finish the show on, although I do wish the showcase was a little longer.

 

Spiderman releases on September 7.

One thought on “E3: Sony Coverage Leave a comment

  1. To whom it may concern,

    Your coverage of E3 has been most pleasing Mr.Diginade.
    Akin to your efforts, It appears that Sony too has revealed quite the satisfying collection of gaming delectables. I look most forward to tackling the many quests to be presented to me in the up and coming Sony flagship blockbuster, The Last of Us:Part II. And let’s not forget the nostalgic remaster of the Playstation classic, Resident Evil 2.
    Good times beckon for the owners of video-gaming systems such as the Playstation 4.

    I anticipate my immersion in many more of your titillating reads, and implore a response, or mayhaps even just a nod of recognition from yourself.

    Sincerely, your long time reader yet first time commenter,

    Gorlak Finkelstein
