Following Ubisoft’s press conference, Sony took the stage. Here are the highlights.
The Last Guardian has finally been announced! The creature is even more moving after seeing extended gameplay. I can’t believe this day finally came. A 2016 release was announced.
Guerrilla Games introduced their new franchise, Horizon Zero Dawn. The game looks ambitious as heck.
A new Hitman was announced.
Street FIghter V was shown, showcasing several characters. The beta starts July 23rd.
Sean Murray from Hello Games took to the stage to show actual gameplay from No Man’s Sky. He showed the awesome (and I mean truly awesome) scope of the game’s galaxy. It was surprising that Murray said the release date was coming soon, and not at the conference. Even still, we saw a lot of aspects to the game we hadn’t seen before (e.g.: destruction).
Media Molecule announced their newest title: Dreams. Dreams is a game where you explore the dreams of others, and create dreams of your own. The creation tools look unreal. And magical.
Firewatch was announced to make its console debut on PS4. Until now, it was only going to be available on PC so this was a welcome announcement.
A trailer for Destiny’s The Taken King expansion was shown with some very exciting locations and weaponry featured. The expansion releases on September 15th.
Assassins Creed Syndicate was shown, and we got a good look at Evie’s playstyle. There will be some exclusive content on PS4.
World of Final Fantasy was announced with chibi-looking characters and will land on PS4 and PS Vita in 2016.
Remake was announced by Square Enix of Final Fantasy VII.
Devolver Digital will be releasing Ronin, Eitr, Mother Russia Bleeds, and Crossing Souls.
Shenmue III was shown to be a new game on Kickstarter. Pretty sure this will be funded like…immediately.
An extended trailer for Batman Arkham Knight was shown highlighting the Scarecrow Nightmare missions.
Project Morpheus was discussed. Rigs will make use of the Morpheus and will be a 3 vs. 3 experience.
House took the stage to discuss various apps for the PS4, and he talked about Playstation Vue, where premium channels can be subscribed to without cable.
Playstation is partnering with Activision and a Black Ops III trailer was premiered. It appeared that the game can be played in four player co-op, though I wasn’t absolutely clear on this. Black Ops III multiplayer was introduced and was announced to be playable on the showroom floor. Starting with Call of Duty Black Ops III, PS4 will be the first to get new map packs. Playstation is apparently the new “home” to Call of Duty.
Disney Infinity 3.0 will have a Playstation exclusive early release playset which has certain characters a month before other platforms. It includes the Boba Fett figure.
Star Wars Battlefront was shown but it was unclear if there was exclusive content.
And to conclude, a new trailer for Uncharted 4 was premiered.
This concludes today’s E3 press conferences, and we begin again tomorrow with Nintendo’s press conference at 9am PST.
