New Games Announced at the PlayStation 5:
It has finally happened. It took Sony 7 years to come up with the next console model, the future of gaming – The PlayStation 5. And it’s fair to say that they have done well with the time and money they have invested upon the new console. But as for the new games, we didn’t get a whole lot of big game revelations. But there were certainly a few games that managed to excite the fans. So, here are the 10 best games that were announced on the PS5 Reveal event:
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
This surely was the biggest reveal of the event. Even though we didn’t get a big trailer, Sony still gave out enough to be able to surprise the fandom. That’s because all the rumors suggested that we were going to get a sequel to the very successful Spider-Man game. But then, the sequel is actually coming in the form of Miles Morales.
Although, we shouldn’t have been as surprised because Miles Morales had a cool section in the last Spider-Man game as well. So, going in the direction of Miles Morales was always a possibility. It’s good to see Marvel expanding their shared gaming Universe as after Spider-Man, we’re going to get Marvel’s Avenger this year, and then Spider-Man Miles Morales as well.
It’s another year, and another NBA game is coming it. Well, this was expected, but the graphics on the new trailer surely look top-notch. It’s good to see that even though the pandemic has slowed things down, we’d still get a new edition of the game based on The National Basketball Association. We don’t know the exact release date of the game yet, but as the trailer suggested, it will arrive sometime this fall. We can expect that this game will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PS4, and Xbox One.
Resident Evil 8 Village
We got the official announcement for the 8th chapter in the Resident Evil franchise – Village. This new entry of the survival horror game will be available for us to buy next year. Surely it was among the biggest franchise games that were revealed.
Here are the first major details of the game:
“Set a few years after the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again. Chris Redfield, the legendary hero from the Resident Evil series who made a brief appearance in Resident Evil 7, is reacquainted with the couple and horribly disrupts their life, leaving Ethan devastated and thrown into an entirely new nightmare.”
Horizon II: Forbidden West
The sequel to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn was arguably an even bigger reveal for many fans. We got the first trailer which showcases the upcoming adventures of Aloy. The world-building for this game series seems to be quite amazing as things looks much different from the snow-covered world we saw in the first game. Along with the new landscape and wildlife, we got to see the return of Lance Reddick’s Sylens, who appeared in the first game as well.
HouseMarque and PlayStation Studios are launching this new sci-fi horror game which uses the elements of stories like Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow, and even Doctor Strange, and puts in an amazing new story of the cosmos. Here’s the official synopsis of the game:
“Returnal combines side-scrolling action with roguelike gameplay into a third-person shooter where players fight to survive a hostile planet that changes with every death. Players can switch instinctively between firing modes by using a single adaptive trigger and can get right back into the action after dying. PS5’s immersive 3D audio brings the alien world to life around the player, helping players navigate the intense positional combat. Coming to PlayStation 5.”
This was another surprising reveal from the big event as another Hitman game was among the most anticipated sequels. Hitman III will seemingly be the last game of its franchise, but it’s safe to say that we’ve a little glimpse at one of the better games coming in the future. The trailer gave us a bit of John Wick vibes, which was cool in itself.
Gran Turismo 7
After Gran Tourismo Sport was released on PS4 back in 2017, we’re finally getting another installment in the series. After looking at the announcement trailer, we are nothing but hyped for the release of this game to arrive on the next-generation console. Creator Kazunori Yamauchi talked about the elements of the upcoming game while speaking to GTPlanet. He said:
“I think in terms of races themselves and physics GT Sport has really reached the best place that we’ve ever reached – we’re at a very good place. On the other hand, obviously we’re working on the next Gran Turismo already, and the world of sport we’ve achieved through GT Sport is something I’ve always imagined to be the future of Gran Turismo. We were able to establish that now.”
Now this was certainly one of the coolest games announced at the PlayStation 5 reveal event. Bethesda and Tango Gameworks gave us the first trailer of GhostWire: Tokyo and it looks nothing short of awesome. We get a good look at a Ghostly modern version of Tokyo. A bit about the game was revealed last year at Bethesda’s E3 2019 conference.
Here’s what Tango Gameworks creative director Ikumi Nakamura had to say about their new upcoming game last year:
“We are making a new kind of action-adventure game—it’s spooky!. But it’s not the survival horror game we are known for. People are vanishing in Tokyo and you must find out why. You will encounter conspiracies and the occult, you will have to explore the world, and face challenges to uncover the truth and save humanity. In the game, you will meet spirits—some dangerous, some peaceful—and survivors that each have their own stories. You will need to ask yourself, is this normal or paranormal?”
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
Here’s a multi-dimensional game that has fans quite excited globally. Apparently, the Multiverse is another sci-fi concept that is making its way across all entertainment forums, and “Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart” uses it in a pretty cool way by allowing the players to interact with several aspects of different dimensions. On top of that, people are loving the new female character revealed in the game.
Sony has revealed another new sci-fi game coming to PS5 from Capcom. As the trailer of the game suggests, the story will take place in a dystopian future where Earth seems to be in ruins, and none of the humans seem to exist (or at least are missing. Here’s the description of the game via Comicbook.com:
“A mysterious astronaut walks the Earth, wearing a futuristic spacesuit. The location appears to be Times Square, or a similar location. The city is completely devoid of people. The astronaut uses something that appears to be a scanner, which causes a little girl and her cat to appear. While the cat appears to be some kind of hologram, the girl clearly has a physical form, prompting the astronaut to interact with her. Their meeting is interrupted, however, by a crashing satellite, which seems to distort reality. As the pair make their escape, the little girl’s eyes show hints that she might be some kind of advanced robot. As the two land on the moon, the girl walks without a suit of her own, as they look out on the Earth.”
