Sony’s E3 conference went about as expected, but on the other hand, it also had some insane surprises that no one would have ever expect, but they are damn sure welcome. While the majority of the show were updates to titles shown at last year’s E3, we were also given a few new projects that have been in the pipeline. Quite secretly, I might add.
Sony was absolutely a mixed bag this year. When they delivered, they delivered, but their misses were some pretty heavy missteps as far as interest. Hit the jump to check out the full rundown of the show.
We opened the show with the announcement of the first DLC pack for Horizon: Zero Dawn – The Frozen Wilds. A new adventure that takes players to the frigid arctic to seek out answers on a mysterious mountain guarded by a beast.
Next, was absolutely the biggest surprise of the show. Shadow of the Colossus is getting an HD remake, and it looks mind-boggling.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy received a new trailer focusing on action, and the characters.
A new IP from Iron Galaxy was announced, called Extinction, that sees players take control of a lone warrior in an attempt to stop the annihilation of humanity by an army of orcs.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite received a new story trailer.
Destiny 2 received a new trailer, and confirmation of its console exclusive DLC.
Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom received a beautiful new trailer.
God of War also received an expected new trailer, and it looks about as epic as we all expected it to be. The moment with the World Serpent being especially amazing. The dynamic with the boy seems to be very unique in this case, and he seems fully capably of handling himself, which is great.
Detroit: Become Human also received another stunning trailer, shedding more light on the story for the game.
All of that paled in comparison to the incredible gameplay trailer that we finally received for the PlayStation exclusive, Spider-Man. After years of teasing it, we finally have our first look at gameplay, and it looks about as gorgeous as we all expected. Fluid, and stunning movement through an open world, with combat that looks so good, it rivals the Batman Arkham games.
