Sony had their E3 2016 conference, and they revealed a whole lot of news.
"God of War 4" was officially revealed, introduced with a grand choir. The game has a new over-the-shoulder view for the game, as well as a snowy mountain for the new location. Kratos has grown a beard and apparently has a kid. Whether this is a reboot or a continuation of the "God of War" series isn't known, as the only title shown is "God of War."
From Bend Studios, a post apocalypse game called "Days Gone" was revealed. Similar to "The Walking Dead," the focus isn't so much the action but remembrance of the "good all days."
More of "The Last Guardian" was shown off. There are going to be smaller enemies that the protagonist has to deal with, along with larger beasts akin to your comrade. The release date was also shown, which was October 25, 2016.
More of "Horizon Zero Dawn" was revealed, despite the delay into 2017. The menu system and map (which the areas are pretty huge) for how you craft items was shown, along with smaller enemies that show signs of "corruption." Dialogue can be chosen similar to that of the "Dragon Age" and "Mass Effect" series. You can also mount the robotic animals.
Quantic Dreams showed off more of "Detroit Become Human," which depicted the troubles that androids face day to day. As with any Quantic Dreams game, decisions you take will impact how things play out, such as the android possibly killing the little girl, the killer android killing your player android, or you taking a more calm route.
"Resident Evil 7" was officially revealed. Somewhat similarly to how the playable teaser for "PT" started, the trailer starts off with a first-person perspective through some grimy, creepy area. Though not much else was shown, but the game will release on January 24, 2016. It can also be played on PlayStation VR and there'll be a demo.
PlayStation VR will release on October 23, 2016 and will cost $399. Over 50 games will be available at launch, with some of them being showcased during the conference, such as "Farpoint," "Star Wars Battlefront (VR)," a "Batman" game by Rocksteady, "Final Fantasy XV," "Call of Duty," and more.
Sony and Activision are teaming up to bring back the first "Crash Bandicoot" games as remastered. However, he'll first appear in "Skylanders Imaginators," playable first on PlayStation.
Hideo Kojima took the stage, announcing that he "was back." He showed off his new project, running in realtime. Norman Reedus will be one of the voice actors, based off the character's likeness to him. "Death Stranding" is the game's title.
Insomniac Games revealed that they have been working on a "Spiderman" game, teaming up with Marvel. It's going to be on the PlayStation 4 and will presumably be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
At the end of the presentation, "Days Gone" was given a live demo. Motorcycle riding is going to be a key component to traveling, as well as exploring areas. There are going to be a lot of undead enemies (the scary running variety), along with human and animal threats. It seems that environmental awareness, as what does what, is key to surviving the undead threat, as it's pretty clear straight up shooting them alone isn't going to keep you alive.
