The President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment America, Shawn Layden, said it himself: 8220;Don8217;t expect some big flashy new idea or surprise [at this year8217;s Sony E3 press conference]8221;. There was no hardware announcement at the Monday 11 June showcase either, so we8217;ll probably have to wait until 2019 for a PS5 announcement.
- E3 2018: The games, consoles, press conferences and announcements to expect
So there you have it. This year8217;s conference, in new and more interactive settings for the audience, will focus on Sony8217;s 8216;big four8217; games for 2018: The Last of Us 2, Death Stranding, Spider-Man and Ghost of Tsushima.
How to watch the Sony PlayStation E3 2018 press conference again
What games were shown at the PS E3 2018 conference?
There8217;s no doubt about it: TLOU2 is a huge deal. The follow-up to Naughty Dog8217;s epic adventure, protagonist Ellie is all grown up and more badass than ever (as you can see from the trailer above).
Anyone have any idea what8217;s going on yet? No, us neither. Hideo Kojima8217;s Death Stranding looks like one bleak world, where the function of time and place are in question. We still have oh so many other questions, the biggest of all: will it actually be a good game?
Spidey is here! One of Sony8217;s big hopes for the PS4 in 2018 is the Marvel hero8217;s escapades, shown off in full-on gameplay style at this year8217;s show.
Remedy and 505 Games might have E38217;s surprise gem on its hands with Control. The mix of zero gravity mechanics and insane visuals gives it a sense of Inception in video-game form. Check out the trailer to see what we mean.
Capcom pulled a biggie out at the Sony conference too: Resident Evil is back in remake form, bringine RE2 kicking and screaming into 2019.
Meaning 8220;uprooted from their natural environment8221;, From Software8217;s PlayStation VR game looks like a total departure for the Japanese studio. There8217;s little detail about the story right now, but the atmospheric English setting looks like a welcome escape from the otherwise guns, swords and knives of the showcase.
