For 2018, Sony decided to keep its E3 keynote very focused. The show was almost entirely dedicated to four upcoming games that we already know about: The Last of Us Part II, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, and Insomniac’s Spider-Man. But while it wasn’t as packed as in year’s past, it did offer some deep looks at some excellent games. It was also pretty damn gruesome, and Sony managed to sneak in a couple of surprises as well. If you missed the show, you can check it all out right here.
DEATH STRANDING’S GRUESOME NEW TRAILER HAS BABIES, TOENAILS, ACTUAL GAMEPLAY
WATCH THE VERY FIRST GAMEPLAY TRAILER FOR THE LAST OF US PART II
We’ve known that a sequel to The Last of Us has been in the works for some time, but at E3 Sony finally showed how the game will actually play. After a tender opening starring Ellie, the trailer then made a dramatic shift to the brutal action you can expect from the game. It’s a meaty video, too: you can check out nearly 12 minutes of the game in the clip above.
GHOST OF TSUSHIMA IS A SLICK PS4 SAMURAI GAME FROM THE CREATORS OF INFAMOUS
We also got a nice long look at Ghost of Tsushima tonight, the next action game from Sucker Punch, a studio best known for the superhero adventure Infamous. It looks absolutely gorgeous, and has what appears to be a satisfying blend between combat and stealth. No word on a release date, though
SPIDER-MAN FOR PS4 SHOWS OFF ITS OPEN-WORLD WEB-SWINGING IN NEW TRAILER
Insomniac’s new Spider-Man comes out in September, which isn’t too far from now. And if you cant wait, there’s a great, lengthy look at the most exciting part of the game: web-swinging. There’s definite Arkham vibes, but with a much lighter tone
KINGDOM HEARTS III’S MULTIPLE E3 TRAILERS HAVE PIRATES, OLAF, BUT FEW CONCRETE ANSWERS
For the third time this E3, Square Enix showed off a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III, and for the third time we got a glimpse at a new Disney world in the game. First it was Frozen, then Ratatouille, and tonight it was Pirates of the Caribbean
CONTROL IS A TIME-BENDING NEW GAME FROM THE DEVELOPERS OF QUANTUM BREAK
One of just a handful of announcements at Sony’s event was Control, a new game from Remedy, the studio behind games like Quantum Break and Alan Wake. It has some trippy time-control combat, and looks wonderfully weird.
DARK SOULS CREATOR FROM SOFTWARE IS MAKING A VR GAME CALLED DÉRACINÉ
From Software has been busy at E3 this year. In addition to announcing the action gameSekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the studio also showed off its first foray into virtual reality, with the PSVR title Déraciné.
THE RESIDENT EVIL 2 REMAKE IS COMING ON JANUARY 25TH
Three years ago Capcom said it was remaking Resident Evil 2, but we haven’t seen much of it since then. Today we not only got a trailer, but a release date: the game will be out in January. It’s coming to the Xbox One and PC in addition to the PS4.
