Sony has introduced that they are going to be holding a Ps Showcase occasion on Might 24 at 1pm PT / 4pm ET / 9pm UK, streamed stay on Youtube and Twitch. The present, which Sony states will probably be simply over an hour lengthy, will embody seems at first-party PS5 and PS VR 2 titles, in addition to some third-party video games. Nothing particular has been confirmed.
The information confirms feedback from Jeff Grubb and VGC’s proprietor and editor Andy Robinson final week, each of whom said that that they had heard a couple of Ps Showcase being held on the finish of Might.
It’s about time, too. Sony has been fairly quiet on what Ps homeowners can stay up for over the subsequent yr or two, so I’m trying ahead to getting a glimpse at what’s in retailer. I think about a secure wager is a have a look at Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 which is about to characteristic two Spider-men and traditional villain/anti-hero Venom.
And let’s not neglect different rumours swirling that Sony and Konami might have agreed to some kind of exclusivity deal collectively on a number of tasks mentioned to incorporate a Steel Gear Strong 3 remake, a brand new Castlevania sport and one thing to do with Silent Hill. If that’s true then the Showcase might be enjoying host to some reasonably large bulletins.
I additionally famous that the official blog post announcing the Showcase used this phrase: “in addition to spellbinding video games from our third-party companions and indie creators.” It’s seemingly nothing however I can’t assist however surprise if this can be a reference to From Software program’s supposed subsequent undertaking after Armored Core 6 named Spellbound. In line with the supply, which originated from 4Chan so take it with a hefty pinch of salt, the sport will characteristic a heavy concentrate on magic.
However placing apart pure hypothesis, Sony has loads of stuff it may showcase. Naughty Canine’s upcoming The Final of Us multiplayer sport may get a debut, for instance, or we’d see Ghost of Tsushima 2 emerge from the shadows. Bend has been engaged on one thing since Days Gone, and Media Molecule is likely to be able to reveal their new undertaking having introduced that they are going to now not help Desires. None of those studios has launched something in over 3 years, other than Naughty Canine remaking The Final of Us once more, so they’re all at a degree the place we may moderately anticipate to see one thing from them.
Sony additionally has its new studios within the type of Firewall, Firesprite and Savage Video games which can all be prepared to indicate off their new video games.
It’s thrilling, and it doesn’t finish there as a result of the Showcase kicks off a number of weeks of occasions, together with the Summer time Video games Fest and Xbox’s Video games Showcase, each in June.
