Sony‘s presentation at the E3 conference may not have featured as many new titles as Microsoft’s, but they sure kept players impressed with their line-up of trailers and gameplay reveals despite the absence of highly-anticipated titles; The Last of Us 2 and Bloodbourne 2.

Here is the break down of all the game trailers that were unveiled during the event.

Spider-Man

E3 2017 – Introducing PS4's Spider-Man, featuring Miles Morales and Peter Parker. The game is set for release in 2018

Boy, did Sony keep the best for last – this Spider-Man gameplay showcases Spider-Man’s fighting prowess in a Arkham-esque style, complete with different web-slinging methods and takedown techniques, in addition to well-animated action scenes. Make no mistake though, the game stands as a separate entity from its upcoming movie – Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Spider-Man is exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and is slated for release in 2018.

Days Gone

Days Gone Gameplay

E3 2017 – Sony’s exclusive Days Gone gameplay trailer announces blood, gore and a whole lot of zombie killing for the PS4.

Days Gone helped kick off Sony‘s earlier showcase with the promise of exhilarating fight sequences, conveyed in the form of zombie hoards, aggressive animals, and of course, humans themselves. The gameplay also showed violent combat (as with all zombie games) with the added element of stealth, so that should make for a more exciting experience.

The post-apocalyptic game is set to be released in 29 December 2017 for the PlayStation 4.

Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter World Reveal

Monster Hunter World finally makes its console debut for the Playstation 4 in this E3 Reveal trailer

Posted by Akiba Press on Monday, June 12, 2017

Japan’s mega-popular action RPG is now coming to consoles and boasts bigger swords and even bigger monsters. It is unsure whether co-op is supported, since the trailer only focused on single-player mechanics, but the franchise is well-known for its multiplayer feature.

Monster Hunter: World will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One come early 2018.

God of War

Action, sea monsters, and some father-son bonding all packed into one trailer – what more could fans ask for? The new God of War follows Kratos’ venture into the new land of Norse mythology, hacking at enemies all while attempting to raise a son.

Scheduled for launch in early 2018, the game will only be coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4.

Capcom vs Marvel: Infinite

One of the most highly-anticipated games among fans of the fighting genre, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite adds several new characters to its existing line-up, such as Dante from Devil May Cry, Mega Man X‘s Zero, and Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Not many details are given in the trailer, but it does show characters meeting at the Stark Tower to defeat the threat caused by Ultron-Sigma.

The game is slated for release on 19 September 2017 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Destiny 2

E3 2017 – Action RPG Destiny 2 will be out 6 September 2017 for consoles

Posted by Akiba Press on Monday, June 12, 2017

Destiny 2 may lack a playthrough footage, but at least its trailer gave players a first look at Dominus Ghaul, the game’s main antagonist. A new multi-shot beehive-looking weapon (believed to be the Dubious Volley) may be hinted at as well – a nod to the “missing” rocket launcher from the first game.

The game is to be launched for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 6 September 2017, while PC gamers have to wait till 24 October 2017 for its arrival.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Uncharted The Lost Legacy Trailer

E3 2017 – Uncharted The Lost Legacy shows off a beautiful new adventure and is coming to PS4 this August

Posted by Akiba Press on Tuesday, June 13, 2017

A spin-off of the main Uncharted series, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy stars Chloe (Uncharted 2) and Nadine (Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End) as the main protagonists instead of male hero Nathan Drake.

The story follows the duo’s adventure in India, where they must uncover an ancient artifact through stealth missions, puzzle-solving, and thrilling action set-pieces – this is Uncharted, after all!

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will only be heading to PlayStation 4, scheduled to be released on 22 August 2017.

Shadow of Colossus

Shadow of the Colossus Trailer

E3 2017 – Shadow of the Colossus will be coming soon to the PS4 in 2018.

Posted by Akiba Press on Monday, June 12, 2017

Shadow of Colossus is a full HD remake of the original PlayStation 2 game. Belonging to the action-adventure genre, the title sports a minimalistic play style, with no dungeons and characters to interact with. Instead, the story unfolds through a series of grand battles against the colossi.

It is set for a PlayStation 4 release in 2018.

Zero Dawn Horizon: The Frozen Wilds DLC

Robot dinosaurs in a snow-covered setting? No worries, Zero Dawn Horizon: The Frozen Wilds DLC has got you covered. The trailer does not reveal much, although we do know that it is going to be story-based, with various new equipment and monsters being made available.

It will be coming to PlayStation 4 in the later part of 2017.

Call of Duty: WWII

Call of Duty: WWII has some serious Battlefield 1 vibes. Several changes have been introduced to this latest instalment; the replacement of the create-a-class setup with a new Divisions system, the choice to select a female character in multiplayer, and a Zombies mode for the campaign mode.

The game is slated for release on 3 November 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR

Dovahkiin, Dovahkiin – it is about time for the chant of the Dragonborn to stop. Apart from the additional VR element, there seems to be nothing new about the game.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will head to PlayStation VR, though a release date has not been confirmed.

StarChild

Developed by Playful, StarChild is an upcoming sci-fi platformer that features beautiful aesthetics. The trailer teases of an epic boss battle at the end, but there isn’t much to go on as of now.

Apart from PlayStation VR, it is unsure if the game will be going on other platforms. No confirmed release date has been released as well.

The Inpatient

From the developers of Until Dawn, The Inpatient takes place 60 years before the events of said game, in the eerie Blackwood Sanatorium. The game seems to involve a narrative-driven adventure, and serves as a standalone title, with a brand new story and character cast to boot.

It will come to PlayStation VR, but the release date has yet to be confirmed.

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy VX VR

The Final Fantasy XV boys are back – they are not fighting, but fishing this time, in VR to boot. Apart from catching all manner of sea creatures, it seems players can also spend time hanging out with the main cast.

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy VX VR is set to release September 2017 for the PlayStation VR.

Bravo Team

Another entry by Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games, Bravo Team looks like a typical FPS, only with the additional VR element. More details have yet to be released, including the launch date.

Moss

The last of the PlayStation VR games, Moss is centred around the adventures of a small mouse, as he embarks on a long journey across the vast wilderness. With the presence of a companion and puzzle-solving elements, the game premise is rather like The Legend of Zelda.

Likewise, the release date is currently unconfirmed.

Detroit: Become Human

The latest trailer for Detroit: Become Human is reminiscent of sci-fi movie I, Robot, and no wonder – the game involves androids fighting for their freedom with a revolution. A neo-noir thriller, Detroit: Become Human puts the player’s decision-making skill to the test, for their choices will shape the game’s eventual outcome.

Neither the release date or the list of platforms have been confirmed thus far.
