A hefty look at God of War’s gameplay was presented alongside a release window of early 2018, while Destiny 2 showcased another trailer and a release date of September 6th. Sony boasted PlayStation exclusive add-on content for Destiny 2, including weapon, gear, and maps.

The final trailer of the night was for Marvel: Spider-Man, the upcoming title based, obviously, on the comic book character of the same name. During the trailer, Peter Parker battles criminals, flies between buildings and over rooftops, and embarks on a one-on-one battle with a helicopter.
