As one of the final big companies to close out this year’s set of E3 press briefings, Sony took to the stage to spotlight a diverse selection of upcoming titles and exciting reveals which the Japanese console manufacturer was super proud of. Following the trailblazing success of the last handful of E3s, all eyes were on President and CEO, Shawn Layden, and his global teams at Sony. To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled all the big announcements right here for your eyes only. Come join us as we recap all the game announcements to come out of Sony’s E3 2018 press conference…
Call of Duty Black Ops 4
First up, Sony announced that the uber-popular military first-person shooter, Call Of Duty: Black Ops III, will be coming to PS Plus on June the 11th – July the 11th. If you’re currently subscribed to PS Plus, you can download the full game now. Next, Activision announced that their upcoming Black Ops 4 will be changing the way how the Call Of Duty franchise will be delivering DLC. Essentially, the company will release the content faster via a “live season” instead of a 4-part season pass. Not exactly revolutionary, but we’ll take it.
From the developer that brought us the Xbox 360 exclusive, Alan Wake, Remedy has announced a new surprising partnership with Sony for its new game, Control. The game looks like an atmospheric, third-person shooter with sandbox elements and will task players with facing an “otherworldly threat.” The Finnish team’s new story-driven experience is scheduled to launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and a vague release window of 2019 was confirmed.
Continuing the highly anticipated game’s uber-cryptic trajectory, a new trailer was revealed for Hideo Kojima’s mysterious title and it subtly detailed some new gameplay and story elements. Albeit in Kojima’s usual enigmatic style.
Another rather cryptic trailer was shown for Dark Souls and Bloodborne developer’s new game. We know that the studio is working on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, this is the second game announcement from the Japanese developer and it looks to be an artistic VR and PS4 exclusive.
Ghost of Tsushima
The debut gameplay trailer for Sucker Punch’s new PS4 exclusive showcased the samurai-focused game’s fast and fluid combat. It also looked unbelievably gorgeous to boot. I mean, just take a gander at those blossom-filled Japanese meadows. Just look at them!
God Of War
“Boy!” Sony Santa Monica’s super successful epic action-adventure PS4 exclusive is confirmed to be receiving a new update that’ll gift the title with an additional New Game Plus Mode.
Kingdom Hearts 3
A new Kingdom Hearts 3-themed special edition PS4 Pro was revealed. Plus, Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean was confirmed to be coming to Disney and Square Enix’s upcoming action-adventure title.
The Last Of Us: Part II
Arguably, the biggest show-stealer so far at this year’s E3 was Naughty Dog’s much anticipated story-rich, survival horror experience. A new extended gameplay trailer was showcased and it looked dark, gritty and absolutely phenomenal. We can’t wait to hear more about this one.
A sequel to Team Ninja’s souls-like samurai RPG was announced and a reveal trailer was unveiled on Sony’s stage.
Resident Evil 2 Remake
Another great highlight from Sony’s E3 press briefing was the gameplay reveal trailer for the much anticipated, Resident Evil 2 Remake. The horror game is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC and a January the 25th, 2019, release date was confirmed.
Marvel and Insomniac’s upcoming open-world superhero PS4 exclusive received a brand-new trailer that bookended Sony’s stage showing at this year’s E3 in style.
