This year’s PlayStation Experience in Anaheim, California may have ended over the past weekend, but Sunday night’s conclusion was far from the end of what PlayStation had for fans. The entire event was jam-packed with amazing game lineups – from the event’s opening Uncharted: The Lost Legacy trailer to Guerrilla’s Horizon: Zero Dawn, PlayStation’s third annual PSX was by far their biggest event.
To kick-off the showcase, Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) Worldwide Studios gave fans an early holiday treat: an all-new trailer for Uncharted 4’s new expansion, The Lost Legacy. The new stand-alone expansion will feature previous character Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, for what should be a badass duo. SIE Worldwide Studios also unveiled some new footage for several highly anticipated games including Gran Turismo Sport, The Last Guardian, Gravity Rush 2, and MLB The Show. Some new SIE WWS games that were also revealed were Knack 2 and Wipeout Omega Collection.
But perhaps the best well received games were the classics. As a way to give back to their fans and celebrate their 20th anniversary, PlayStation announced that they would be remastering some of their fans’ favorites. The series that PlayStation fans (and all gaming fans in general) have been waiting to see remastered are now going to be available on the PS4. Shawn Layden showcased some of these remastered titles at the PSX. Games like the Carsh Bandicoot N. Sane trilogy, PaRappa the Rapper, Patapon and LocoRoco are going to be completely remastered for gamers to play.
As for third-party games, the list of games that made an appearance at this year’s PSX was also impressive. Most notably, Capcom came to the event with the big news: Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. The classic fighting game will launch the new title sometime next year. However, for those who couldn’t wait, they also made their Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 available for download on the PS4 that same night, December 3rd.
Some indie developers were also at the PlayStation experience, showcasing dozens of titles including Dreadnaught, Let it Die, Vane, Absolver, Edith Finch, Nier: Automata, Nex Machina, Windjammers, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdoms and Ys Origins.
PlayStation also brought out several titles that will support their VR, including Starblood Arena, Ace Combat 7, and if you’re brave enough, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
Closing the showcase was the highly anticipated The Last of Us Part II. Naughty Dog’s next title to their wildly popular first installment is still early in its development but they did bring along an early trailer of their new game.
All in all, the PlayStation Experience was a treat for PS fans and gaming fans in general to attend. Look for some of these upcoming titles to hit the market soon and for more gaming news make sure to keep up with MXDWN’s latest.
