Sony have stepped up to Microsoft's mark with another big budget press conference, with a showcase of some of it's latest games for the PS4, although rather than having any major new reveals, we got to learn a lot more about upcoming titles that we already knew were coming, including The Last of Us Part 2 and Hideo Kojima's rather unusual looking Death Stranding, as well as a Resident Evil 2 remake.
Ghost of Tsuhima
This has to be one of the more visually impressive games to be shown in all of E3 so far. This slash-em-up set in feudal Japan looks bloody and brutal, yet somehow beautiful with those amazingly lush background visuals. Be warned that the trailer below is somewhat graphic, though.
The Last of Us Part 2
Naughty Dog's new entry starts out with Ellie from the original game dancing with a love interest, but as you might expect, quickly turns into a violent, dark affair, with plenty of gameplay shown. Some lovely visuals include entrails being removed, brutally realistic stab wounds, and some disturbingly realistic detail. Once again, the trailer below is not the faint of heart. Be warned.
To cheer us up (I think) after all that gore comes Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, a game I still don't understand and, ironically, I may understand even less after the new information revealed today. What we do know is that the game follows Sam Bridges, who as we know is modelled on actor Norman Reedus, traversing a bizarre world of shimmering figures and giant invisible beasts.
Carrying the stranded remnants of the future in his hands, Sam embarks on a journey to reunite the shattered world one step at a time. What is the mystery of the Death Stranding? What will Sam discover on the road ahead? A genre defining gameplay experience holds these answers and more.
I'm certainly still intrigued to learn more, but this game may best be understood once we get our hands on it. Assuming we ever do understand it.
Resident Evil 2 Remake
And yes, the news fans have long been waiting for, a new remake of Resident Evil 2, considered by many to be the best ever entry into the series, and this new remastered version is looking great. Once again players can take Leon and Claire through Raccoon City as they try to survive the hoard of flesh-eating zombies trying to eat them. The new remake is coming to the console on January 25th, 2019.
Oh, and yeah, the trailer below? Be warned, it's pretty graphic...
