Sony’s E3 Event Focuses on Trailers and Major Releases
Sit back and watch the show
Sony’s E3 event was simple and direct, showcasing four major titles and a few unannounced games coming to the PS4 over the next year. There weren’t any real surprises this year, but fans got a better look at “Death Stranding,” “The Last of Us: Part II,” “Spider-Man,” and “Ghost of Tsushima”. They aren’t the only games coming to the PS4, but since developers have already showcased “The Division II,” “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey,” “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” and other major releases, Sony kept thing quick and painless.
The new “Death Stranding” trailer will have people talking that’s for sure. The game featured a digital Norman Reedus walking through a barran world making deliveries and destroying his feet in the process. The trailer was filled to the brim with bizarre imagery and had plenty of painful to watch moments. Reedus’ character also seemed scared to encounter translucent beings that seem to want him dead while detecting CO2.
Did you get enough “Kingdom Hearts III” this week? Well if you didn’t, Sony had a trailer waiting for you. A trailer for the game was released during Microsoft’s big event, during Square Enix’s big event, and now Sony’s main event. You can watch the trailer below to see your favorite Disney characters join the battle.
Everyone knew that “The Last of Us: Part II” was coming to E3, but it was still beautiful to see the game on the giant E3 screen. Ellie opened the trailer with a touching scene of young-romance before the harsh reality of the game’s world came crashing in. The trailer for the game made the title seem like the most well-crafted of the lot, but we will have to wait and see how the game plays when it finally hits store shelves.
“Ghost of Tsushima” was another heavy-hitter tonight, the title comes from the developers at Sucker Punch and blends ancient swordplay with leading edge animation.
“Spider-Man” had a trailer in the infamous “The Raft” prison of the Marvel Universe, but the setting and the gameplay made us think of “Batman: Arkham Asylum” the entire time. That’s not really a bad thing, the “Arkham” franchise is one of the most successful comic-book based video games of all-time, and fans loved them. Hope you like seeing Spider-Man villains because this trailer is drowning in them.
“Control” was actually a new game, and an interesting one to boot. The game comes from Remedy and features augmented powers and a lot of particle effects. If you like remakes and remasters, “Resident Evil 2” is making a glorious launch on the PS4 on January 25, 2019.
