E3 is just about over this year, and while Sony did not reveal too many surprises or shocking announcements this round – such as confirming rumors regarding a PS5 or PSVR2 – we did get to see more of the titles we are already anticipating for the near future. So without further ado, here are the E3 2018 Sony Press Conference Highlights.
Things were kicked-off with some gameplay of Naughty Dog‘s upcoming The Last of Us Part II. Ellie is stealthily creeping through the tall grass and hiding behind abandoned cars, while picking off the nearby baddies using a variety of weapons, crafting ammunition and pulling an arrow out of her shoulder. The graphics look stunning, and the gameplay seems more brutal than the previous installment. No release window has been announced yet.
Following a set of teasers, we got to see some gameplay of Sucker Punch Productions‘ upcoming action-adventure title, Ghost of Tsushima. Set in an open world, the game takes place in ancient Japan during the first Mongol invasion, where players can engage in one-on-one duels with their katanas, use stealth, and explore the island of Tsushima on horseback. The graphics on this one is also breathtaking, particularly the picturesque environment. Ghost of Tsushima is scheduled for release sometime next year.
Perhaps the biggest highlight of the Press Conference was gameplay for Hideo Kojima’s highly anticipated and talked-about Death Stranding, where we see the player-character modeled after Normal Reedus, wandering a desolate land while lugging scientific equipment, hiding from a strange phantom that leaves handprints in the mud, and using a device to reveal invisible enemies to sneak past. The trailer appears both incredible and ambiguous at the same time. Still no release window set for Death Stranding.
Things ended with gameplay for Insomniac Games‘ Spider-Man, set for release on September 7, 2018. The game will be set in an open-world of New York City, where Spidey not only battles enemies with his fists and web-action, but can use environmental combat, stealth, and even craft his own gadgets.
Other quick teasers and trailers were revealed for Resident Evil 2 Remake set for January 25 next year, the action RPG Kingdom Hearts III releasing worldwide on January 29, Team Ninja‘s Nioh 2, the quirky Trover Saves the Universe by the creator of Rick and Morty, and Remedy Entertainment‘s supernatural action-adventure Control.
