Monday evening Sony started their press conference with a first look at the new “God of War“. Followed by an onslaught of game after game. “Days Gone“, “The Last Guardian“, “Horizon Zero Dawn“, a new game from developer Quantic Dream makers of “Beyond Two Souls” and “Heavy Rain” called “Detroit Become Human“. The Game looks very much in line with the tv show “Almost Human” which aired on fox from 2013-2014.
Next up Sony showed various virtual reality games for the upcoming “Playstation VR”. Resident Evil VII, “Star Wars Battlefront X-Wing VR Mission“, “Farpoint“, “Batman Arkham VR“, “Final Fantasy XV VR experience“. Followed by a look at “Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare”. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how much the gameplay looked like “Titanfall 2“. We won’t have to wait long to find out which game pulls it off better come the fall. “Crash Bandicoot” is getting a remaster of the first three games plus making an appearance in the new “Skylanders game that was shown.
The biggest two reveals were the Playstation exclusive “Spiderman” game by Insomniac and Hideo Kojima revealing his first game since being fired by Konami “Death Stranding” starring Norman Reedus. Strand means to drive or leave aground or ashore. Which makes sense since we see Norman Reedus’ character in the trailer, naked ashore. Not sure why they just didn’t say stranded. Perhaps their combining strand and standing, maybe it’s just bad translation. Regardless the trailer was interesting and hopefully they reveal more in the coming months. What excited you the most? We’d love to hear in the comments.
