Sony announced last week that it would take a page out of Nintendo's and Microsoft's playbooks, launching its own developer event. On Monday, the company held its first State of Play event to talk about the latest game releases for PlayStation as well as what's coming to the PlayStation VR.
Sony follows Nintendo with its streams from Nintendo Direct and shows Inside Xbox, from Microsoft, and says it will keep more of those streams through 2019.
PlayStation VR was a major focus of the event
The State of Play event began with Iron Man VR, which will let Marvel fans play as Tony Stark as they blow up first-person villains. Space Yes In Man's Sky is also acquiring an RV component as part of the free update of No Man's Sky: Beyond. We also have some new footage of the upcoming Ready Heroes game in 2019, and the long-awaited British title Blood and Truth has a firm release date of May 28.
Sony has also reviewed several other RV titles coming this year:
- Jupiter and Mars
- Trover saves the universe
- Everyone is golf VR
- Table of Tales
- Vacation Simulator
The broadcast went deeper into several virtual reality games, including "Observation," a science fiction thriller that controls a huge space station as you discover the terrible story of the remaining survivors. The Five Nights at Freddy's long-standing pennant favorite was shown with scary VR game scenes. And Concrete Genie followed a young artist who has the ability to draw creatures that will help protect him and restore life to an agonizing city.
New details about upcoming PlayStation 4 games
The PlayStation VR was the clear focus of the event, but Sony also gave us some more console titles as well as updates to games we already knew.
Days Gone had a firm release date on April 26, 2019 and Sony showed some new images of the next title with its first story trailer.
Mortal Kombat 11 also has some screen time, showing Kung Lau, Liu Kang and Jax, increasing the long list of fighters we hope to see – with all the blood and blood that the series is known for.
