E3 2016: Sony Press Conference News Round-Up

on June 14, 2016 7:51 AM

Did you miss Sony’s E3 conference? Do not fear, I’ve got you covered,

I know what you’re thinking: how the hell are Sony going to top their press conference from last year? Honestly, I don’t know how they did it, but they did.

God of War, The Last Guardian, Zero: Horizon Dawn, Resident Evil 7 and a new game from Kojima are just a few of Sony’s hard-hitters this year.

Let’s get started, shall we?

The conference kicked off with the announcement of a new God of War game, coming exclusively to the PS4. The reveal was accompanied with a stunning orchestra performance from The Walking Dead composer Bear McCreary.

Interestingly, Kratos is older, and now he’s taking care of a child, teaching him the way of the warrior and hunter.

You can check out the new God of War reveal here.

Sony finally unveiled Sony Bend Studio’s next game: Days Gone.

The game, set in a rather terrifying post-apocalyptic world, definitely looks great running in Unreal Engine 4. Ooft.

You can check it out here.

We also got a new look at the upcoming PS4 exclusive, The Last Guardian.

The Last Guardian is set to release October 25th, 2016.

You can check out the cute, feel-inducing trailer here.

A brand new gameplay trailer for the upcoming open-world RPG, Horizon: Zero Dawn by Guerrilla Games, was also shown off. I cannot wait for the game. Damn.

As usual, the game looks absolutely spectacular, and you can check out the gameplay demo here.

Quantic Dream showcased a brand new trailer of their upcoming game Detroit: Become Human.

As usual, it looks absolutely fantastic (and actually quite tragic), and it introduces a new character named Connor.

You can check out a new trailer here.

Capcom unveiled the new chapter of the Resident Evil saga, Resident Evil 7.

The game will be released in January 24, 2017 and it will be fully compatible with PlayStation VR.

As a further surprise, a demo is already available now on the PlayStation Store.

You can check the scary debut trailer out here.

Sony finally announced a firm release date for its upcoming virtual reality headset, PlayStation VR.

The headset, that until now simply came with an “October 2016” release window, will now ship on October 13th in the United States.

SIEA CEO Shawn Layden also reminded us on stage that fifty games will be available for the headset at release. Impressive.

With Sony’s PlayStation VR platform officially confirmed for an October 13th release in the US, it surely needs some games, right? Right.

A new trailer was released showcasing Batman: Arkham VR, a new title being developed exclusively for PlayStation VR by Rock Steady and that will debut near the platform’s release in October 2016.

Batman: Arkham VR will release for PS4 & PlayStation VR in October 2016.

Check out the trailer here.

It came as no surprise that Star Wars Battlefront would be getting PSVR exclusive missions. While not a lot was shown, we now know that it is a Star Wars X-Wing VR Mission.

Check out the trailer here.

Activision said we would be getting an in-depth look at Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s single player at E3, and they definitely delivered.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered will release worldwide on November 4th.

Check out the in-depth single player video down here.

A new trailer for Final Fantasy XV, and also the introduction of  Final Fantasy XV VR Experience. In it you play as Prompto in a first person mode, and assist the other characters in battle.

Not much else was revealed about the game at this time, but we can be sure that more will be covered during Square Enix’s livestreams over the next few days.

You can watch the reveal trailer here.

Kojima is back, baby.

The game is called “Death Stranding” and unsurprisingly stars Norman Reeedus.

Check out the trailer here.

In what was a huge surprise announcement, a Spider-Man game was revealed for the PlayStation 4 and is being developed by Insomniac Games. The title, code-named Spider-Man PS4, seems to be a PS4 exclusive.

Watch the trailer here.

And there you have. You’re up to date with Sony’s E3 2016 press conference – what a fantastic lineup of games.
