The Japanese manufacturer has made an impressive appearance for the consolePlaystation Its 5, with a large number of new gameplay videos and some special surprises
Sony's PlayStation Showcase Event for 2021 Was relatively short, but unusually exhaustive - and provided us with a number of interesting exclusive projects to look forward to in 2022 as well as 2023, which could ensure the company's leadership continuity in terms of sales volumes in the field in the foreseeable future.
Marvel's Spider-Man 2
The love story between Sony's (new) developer, Insomniac Games, and Marvel's continues to evolve - after the successes of the original 2018 Spider-Man and last year's alternative sequel, now a direct and official sequel awaits us that combines the plot lines of these works. , And adds to the cauldron also the dreaded Venom. The trailer does not reveal much details, but with a launch planned exclusively for the consolesPlaystation 5 Just somewhere during 2023, we will probably have plenty of more opportunities for closer acquaintance from now until the moment the game is ready.
This was probably the biggest surprise of the event - while some sources predicted a possible sequel for Spider-Man, it seems no one could have wished for another new collaboration between Insomniac and Marvel that would bring back to the gaming world one of the most famous characters in all comic book universes. . The short trailer presented provides almost nothing beyond Logan's iconic adamantium claws, not even a possible launch year, but after the great work done with Spider-Man it seems everyone is convinced that the same studio people are the right team for this new project as well.
God of War: Ragnarok
The next episode of the acclaimed action series has won a long and invested gameplay and plot trailer, with confirmation that this is the ending for Kratos' Nordic saga (and an emphasis on the fact that this is not the end of the road for the character itself, it seems) and a number of side characters. Previous episodes of the series together.
Gran Turismo 7
The new episode in another legendary series has finally won a worthy gameplay video - with spectacular graphics in the best tradition, a combination of modest everyday vehicles and extremely rare supercars and even an official launch date, on March 4, 2022 for all Consoles The PlayStation 4 and all Consoles God-Playstation 5.
Knights of the Old Republic Remake
A recurring story with a minimalist trailer with no gameplay and no significant details, which nevertheless managed to excite countless actors from around the world. The rumors turned out to be true and the legendary role-playing of BioWare Since 2003 it has received a full remake - with the people responsible for it being Aspyr Studio, who worked on updating and adapting the original KotOR game pairs to modern platforms, and will now need to prove that they have the talent and abilities to please both ardent fans from the past and a new generation of young players. .
The new game from Final Fantasy XV (which was known for a while as code code Project Athia) got its own long gameplay video with agile and exciting movement through diverse environments and fine graphics that approach the quality of the technological demo videos for the engine.Unreal Engine 5 we received in the past. There is also a temporary framework for the launch, and it is not too far away - the spring month of 2022, that is, in less than a year from now (assuming there are no late delays here).
What was not?
Grand Theft Auto 5 Trailer for Consoles The new generation has caused us to miss a beat in the face of the many rumors about remake or remaster versions of GTA Vice City, GTA 3 andGTA San Andreas in preparation. We had hoped that confirmation of their existence would be one of the surprises and highlights of the entire evening, but in the end it all came down to a somewhat standard trailer of the hit familiar to most of us, plus a disappointing postponement of its launch from the current year to March 2022. It definitely sucks, though we Because hits GTA From the past indeed on the way to a comeback, which will be revealed separately sometime later.
