Everything You Can Expect From PlayStation At E3 2017
Microsoft Already Announced everything they got in yesterday’s E3 Conference and it was pretty good. Now it’s time for PlayStation to show what they got. Currently, the PS4 is the highest selling gaming console of this generation.
God of War
Sony opened E3 last year by surprising viewers with the gameplay of the new God of War game. It looked intimate, human, and emotional – all things that the original God of War was not. Expect to see more gameplay detailing how combat and exploration have changed in this new title along with a possible release date.
Detroit: Become Human
Quantic Dream has been teasing us with Detroit for quite some time, but we have yet to see a release date. The game looks polished and detailed, we’ve already seen plenty of teasers and trailers, it’s time we know when we can get our hands on it.
The Last of Us: Part II
The Last of Us was described as the game of a generation, as Naughty Dog’s swan song. At PSX last year we saw an unexpected reveal featuring an older Ellie full of anger, “I’m going to find and kill every last one of them” she says. While the first game was thematically about love, this game will be the antithesis to that; this time it will be about hate. The game will be directed by Niel Druckmann with Westworld’s Halley Gross as a writer. It’s safe to expect this game in some form whether that be a teaser or gameplay video. Hopefully the latter- fingers crossed.
It’s been rumored for quite some time that Capcom is working on something for the Playstation 4. That something may just be an exclusive Monster Hunter Game -it may also just as well be the return of Deep Down. Monster Hunter was born into the world on the Playstation 2, therefore a Playstation 4 title would be an exciting return to roots. Interestingly, Monster Hunter: World was just recently trademarked by Capcom. Could this be the rumored title?
Final Fantasy VII: Remake
The last we really saw of the FF7 Remake was a trailer at PSX 2015 (aside from the 2 screenshots revealed at the Monaco Anime Game International Conference earlier this year). Unfortunately, we also were informed recently that Square Enix has only recently moved FF7 remake development in-house. Regardless, we are long overdue an update.
Rocksteady Studios new game
Developer Rocksteady Studios released Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015, and has yet to announce anything. It was seemingly leaked on Reddit earlier this year that Rocksteady is working on a new game titled: Batman: Arkham Insurgency. This could be the year we get a reveal.
Last year at E3 we got our first look at Days Gone -an open world survival game with hordes of zombies (called freakers in game). Unfortunately, that gameplay demo was in “God mode” where enemy damaged was minimized, NPC’s were weakened and ammo was infinite. Hopefully, at this E3 we get a shift in focus to show Days Gone in a more grounded light, where the main character is more vulnerable. Perhaps show us the open world including different locations such as towns and wildlife, as well as a release date this time around.
Suckerpunch Productions new game
Suckerpunch, the developer of Infamous Second Son, has been very quite. We don’t have any idea what they’re working on. It’s time they pull back the curtain and reveal their secret project – hopefully, a new IP, although infamous is pretty sweet too.
Developed by Insomniac, the studio behind Ratchet & Clank. We fully expect Spiderman at E3, hopefully, this time we get a look at combat, enemies, and more especially fluidity- movement is important in Spiderman games and Insomniac is more than capable of acting this aspect. With a new Spiderman movie coming out this year, a release date announcements is likely.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
What was once supposed to be DLC, has now turned into a full-fledged Uncharted game, which we learned is releasing August 22 of this year. Featuring Chloe Frazer; the fan favorite character from previous Uncharted entries was mysteriously gone from Uncharted 4, so we’re more than thrilled she’s getting her own game. Interestingly: Nadine, the spotlight-stealing badass from Uncharted 4 will fight alongside Chloe. We’ve already seen a lot of this game, and we know the release date so don’t expect much to be shown.
FromSoftware new game.
FromSoftware, developer of Bloodborne has also been quiet after their release of Dark Souls 3. We know they have 3 titles in development with one being a dark fantasy. Could this be a sequel to Bloodborne 2? Or perhaps a new IP. Regardless, it’s time they begin teasing what they’re working on.
Horizon Zero Dawn DLC
Horizon Zero Dawn was an instant success with players and both financially and critically. It’s clear the playstation community embraces Aloy and the world she lives in. A female protagonist fighting robot dinosaurs with a bow and arrow- need I say more. The only problem with the Horizon Zero Dawn was that there was not enough of it. While Horizon was only recently released in February it’s not too early to begin teasing new content, perhaps even an expansion.
This title mysteriously disappeared from the public’s eye. It was announced as a Playstation 4 exclusive, but not much is known about the plot. Earlier this year Michel Ancel, the director of the game, shared a screenshot of the game on his Instagram Profile so we know the game is still in development. After all this time, we should expect to see more of WilD at E3.
Don’t to expect to see:
Kojima announced on Twitter that Death Stranding will be skipping this E3 as they are “fully focused on development”.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Despite the rumored marketing deal with Sony, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed that they will not be at E3. “We’re not really showing products”.
Kingdom Hearts 3
Strangely, Kingdom Hearts 3 released a trailer before the conference showing off some gameplay, so it is unlikely we will see Kingdom Hearts 3 again on Sony’s stage.
