Sony E3 2016 round-up: God of War, Crash Bandicoot, PlayStation VR and more
Here's what went down during Sony's E3 presentation.
Sony arrived at E3 2016 with a massive list of announcements and reveals, including news from old favourites and new friends. Didn't catch the presentation? No worries ,we've summed up all the highlights in one place. Enjoy!
The Last Guardian gets a release date
A year ago, we never thought we'd see a release date for The Last Guardian, a project that many assumed abandoned after years of E3 no-shows from Sony.
Fans that have been waiting since the game was first revealed in 2007 won't have to wait much longer to get their hands on the title, as Sony confirms that The Last Guardian arrives on PS4 on October 25th.
We got a new trailer too. What a time to be alive.
Sony shows Horizon Zero Dawn gameplay demo
New gameplay from Horizon Zero Dawn dropped during Sony's presentation, much to the delight of PlayStation fans.
The video (below) shows off exploration and combat from the PS4 exclusive. Guerrilla Games' Jeroen Roding wrote on the PlayStation Blog: "In this demo, we follow Aloy as she journeys beyond the walls of her village to defeat a 'demon' which is terrorizing locals and breeding fear throughout the valley. Aloy will have to use every ounce of her knowledge, intelligence and agility to survive this encounter."
Horizon Zero Dawn is out on PS4 early next year.
Resident Evil 7 is coming to PlayStation VR
Do you like the idea of having a screen strapped to your face while you play a zombie game?
Well you're in luck, because Resident Evil 7 is penned in for a visit to PlayStation VR on January 24, 2017. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be set after the events of Resident Evil 6, and is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Looks like Sony is finally satisfied that we have reached their sacrifice threshold, as the platform holder announced that Crash Bandicoot 1-3 will be arriving, fully remastered, on PlayStation 4.
Although they didn't show footage of the remasters in action, they said that Crash is coming to PS4, and that's good enough for us.
Insomniac Games working on a Spider-Man title for PS4
A PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man game is on the way from Insomniac.
Just a little bit of gameplay was shown at the presentation, which we've embedded below. Looks promising to us, even though we're not 100% sold on Spidey's outfit.
Take control of "an experienced Peter Parker who is more masterful at fighting crime" when the game arrives on PS4.
Sony unveils Days Gone, new IP from Uncharted: Golden Abyss developer
Brand new series 'Days Gone' was revealed last night during Sony's E3 showing.
We didn't get much information on the new game beyond the trailer, embedded below. We do know that it's from the studio behind Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and that it features a lot of zombie killing, and that it looks ace. I'm sold.
Batman: Arkham VR coming exclusively to PlayStation this October
Be the Bat on PlayStation this October.
Check out the official trailer below and see what Sony had to say about the exclusive Batman experience.
Experience Gotham City through the eyes of the World's Greatest Detective in an all new Arkham mystery. Think like Batman. Utilise his legendary gadgets in Virtual Reality to unravel a plot that threatens the lives of Batman's closest allies.
Looks like Rocksteady wants to release alongside PlayStation VR in October with this one. Let's see if they make it in time!
Fly an X-Wing in new Star Wars Battlefront VR mission
This PlayStation VR experience is due out later this year, and will be free to all those that purhcased Battlefront on PS4.
Thank you, Sony.
New God of War stars Kratos and Kratos Jr.
Sony opened their show with footage from the brand new God of War, so I'm not sure why we left this one until last.
A 10 minute demo was shown during the presentation, in which you can take a look at Kratos in Dad-mode with a rugged and manly new beard. See Kratos and his son out on a hunt and working together in combat during this official gameplay.
Check it out.
