While the intro to Sony’s live press conference wasn’t without it’s audio and pacing issues, they quickly recovered to show off a stellar lineup of AAA titles, exclusives, and show off even a couple of games that we can see on other platforms as well. We saw a few titles from last year in a little more depth, but the new titles they showed left us wanting more.
Uncharted: Lost Legacy started off the party with a very quiet, action packed trailer with amazing music and synchronized waterfalls. Here is the story trailer that was shown with correct audio.
Horizon: Zero Dawn is getting an expansion called the Frozen Wilds.
We were able to get a nice long look at Days Gone with an almost 7 minute gameplay trailer. In this game you can herd walkers a-la Rick Grimes style and manipulate their course to assist with taking out fellow survivors from rival camps.
Monster Hunter is coming to PS4 (and Xbox One and PC). Capcom stated that Monster Hunter will be 4 player co-op “in a newly designed online drop-in multiplayer system which allows cross-region cooperative play between Japan and the west.”
Shadow of the Colossus is a full on, full on remake of the original that Team Ico blessed us with so many years ago. While, the graphics look amazing, there isn’t much else to say about Shadow of the Colossus since we all know just how damn amazing that game was.
Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite made a quick appearance showing off a little of the story for the game. WHY AREN’T X AND ZERO TOGETHER!?!?! **insert sad face emoji here**
Activision once again partnered with Sony to show off Call of Duty WW2.
So much VR. So much. Just so much. The one game the did grab some attention was Moss, a platformer/puzzle style game.
We also saw the newest VR version of
Sega Bass Fishing Monster of the Deep, a Final Fantasy based fishing game.
God of War came to play catch with us starring Papa Kratos. We still have to wait til 2018 to play, but that may just give Kratos enough time to get those parenting skills leveled up.
Detroit: Become Human brings a Philip K Dick style not-so-distant future in the feeling of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. With a feel of Heavy Rain and your own conscience, this game allows you to make critical life or death decisions with every situation you come across.
We were also given, as a closer to the show, Sony’s big E3 2016 game, Spiderman. Web-sling your way through NYC and beat up the baddies in a Rocksteady/Arkham style fighting system with the ability to use your environment to take out the enemy. After the closing sizzle reel, we did see Miles Morales taking a picture of a helicopter that Spidey saved from crashing into the people below with a little web magic.
No Last of Us 2, no Death Stranding, and no Bloodborne 2, but beggars can’t be choosers, and what exclusives we did see, look amazing.
