Confirmed New Games
Several games were announced for the new system. For a full list of those known so far, check out our post on the matter. Highlights from the presentation included:
The official description of this game sets it up as a scifi-fantasy mishmash of the sort we’ve come to expect from Playstation. “Mankind must turn to an unlikely hero named Knack to protect them from a dangerous new threat. Thanks to the power of mysterious ancient relics, Knack can transform into a gigantic fighting machine with immense power and strength.”
See the trailer on the official Killzone Facebook page.
A new racing game described as having “Borderline insane” real world graphics, it allows players to drive ‘the best cars in the world with other people’. Sony said the game was developed in part by visiting “the greatest car companies in the world”, among them BMW, Maserati and Mercedes. The game apparently rewards players for playing in groups (though multiplayer isn’t required.)
inFamous: Second Sun
A new trailer was shown for the next game in the inFAMOUS franchise, which appears set in a world in which surveillance technology has become ubiquitous and the rights of citizens a memory. Into this dystopian mess comes a new batch of mutants who use their powers to revolt against this tyranny. UPDATED – it takes place after the events of the first two games, but centers around new characters. Sensible since that game (spoiler) ended with either the death of the main character, or with his destroying the world.
A new game by Jonathan Blow, this one’s been in development for some time. It boasts gorgeous colors and looks, as one Game Fronter observed, like Myst for PS4.
