Sony opened with two cinematic trailers, the first being for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a new chapter in the Uncharted franchise starring returning characters Nadine Ross and Chloe Frazer, and another for Horizon Zero Dawn add-on content. Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds will be available this year.
Sony also had quite a few gameplay trailers to showcase as well. Days Gone, first announced in 2016, showed off a daring rescue mission in an apocalyptic, zombie-infested setting, while Monster Hunter World, a fresh installment in the Monster Hunter series, featured a daring hunt and a release window of early 2018.
The end of 2017 will see the release both of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite on September 19th with a story demo available right now, and Call of Duty: WWII on November 9th. Team Ico’s 2005 hit Shadow of the Colossus will be getting a remaster in 2018, and Detroit: Become Human saw a trailer with a blend of cinematic cutscene and gameplay.
PlayStation VR had a number of titles announced for it as well, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, Star Child, The Inpatient, a VR DLC for Final Fantasy XV entitled Monster of the Deep, Bravo Team, and Moss.
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.
PlayStation promised to have more news on its upcoming titles later this year at PSX. For all your E3 2017 updates, remember to keep checking back at Emertainment!
