As you may know, Sony made an appointment with fans on Thursday evening June 2 for a new State of Play. As announced by the manufacturer, this conference is mainly devoted to PSVR 2, Sony’s next virtual reality headset, but also to future compatible games. Of course, the manufacturer also had some good surprises for the PS5 and PS4. Finished? Let’s go, let’s take stock of the announcements from the Japanese firm together.
PSVR in the spotlight
Promise, what to expect, Sony has finally announced something new about the PSVR 2, the brand new virtual reality headset. Pre-orders will begin in the fall of 2022. As for the price of the accessory and the release date, we will, unfortunately, have to wait a little longer. Let’s start with the big announcement of the evening, which is the arrival of the resident evil 4 remake † Indeed, the GameCube cult game that marked the revival of the saga is being rejuvenated on PS5 from March 24, 2023 Capcom also indicated that the game would be compatible with the PSVR 2
We are proceeding with the confirmation of a PSVR 2 Compatibility for Resident Evil Village† Like Resident Evil 7 before it, owners of Sony’s VR headset can relive Ethan Winters’ misadventures in virtual reality. Credits: SonyZombie over and over with the announcement of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Retribution, a new game based on Robert Kirkman’s famous comics. On the program, the living dead, visceral hand-to-hand and firearms combat. The title will be released this year, with no further details. Exclusive to PSVR 2 by the way.
No Man’s Sky from the Hello Games studio is also entitled to the version optimized for the PS5, with better performance on the game. As the trailer shows, players can also count on compatibility with PSVR2! Explore the galaxy in VR and with friends, quite a program.
Finally, Sony closed out this collection of upcoming games for the PSVR 2 with the highly anticipated Horizon Call of The Mountain. Developed by Guerrilla Games, this spin-off invites you to rediscover this time the world of Aloy, populated by deadly machines, in VR! We find the formula that made the success of the series, namely: stunning graphics, perfectly animated machines, and archery battles that require precision and speed We note that there will also be phases of escalation. Still no release date.
Lots of indie games coming to PS5
Let’s take a look at the independent scene with some well-known and unreleased titles. First, the puzzling strayed from Annapurna Games, this game that will put us in the shoes of a cat in a cyberpunk universe will be available from next July 19th The very good Zelda-esque Tunic is already available on Xbox Game Pass, coming on PS4 and PS5 27-09-2022.
Still, under independent productions, we note RollerDrome, a little surprise that you fancy. With its tunes from Jet Set Radio mixed with John Wick Hex, the title allows players to don inline skates and perform acrobatic tricks while taking out anything that moves with its pair of guns. Very promising, to check August 16, 2022† Finally, the final indie title of the evening is none other than Season: A letter to the future a relaxing and poetic title that invites you to explore lavish sets.
Heavy on PS5 with Street Fighter 6 and FF XVI
As mentioned, Sony had not only mastered announcements around the PSVR 2. The Japanese manufacturer had a few surprises for PS5 owners, as well as PC players. In reality, the excellent Marvel Spider-man from Insomniac Games finally arrives on PC in its remastered version! We suspect that as for the PC version of God of War, the title will offer a lot of graphics options to suit all configurations. The release date is set for August 12, 2022.
As for AAA games, Sony has created a surprise with The Callisto protocol a brand new horror action game that seems to draw its inspiration from empty space See for yourself, abandoned ships, hideous mutated creatures, mutilations, and beheadings. Obviously, the developers have come up with a whole new process called Horror Engineering to create the perfect jump scares† We can’t wait to discover it in December 2022.
Imagine a Dating Sim, a dating simulator mixed with an action game? This is the unexpected formula of EaterNights, a JRPG expected for 2023.
The other big announcement, we owe it to Capcom with the highly anticipated Street Fighter 6! Ryu, Chun-Li, and the other fighters return to happily face it in a rather impressive CGI trailer. The game will also use the editor’s internal graphics engine the RE Engine, which players have seen in action on RE Village and Devil May Cry 5. New to the franchise, the game will include a full single-player story mode that allows you to fulfill your own destiny in the Street Fighter universe. To battle, hubit’s like a massive multiplayer hub where players can come together to fight online, as well as chat or train. SF 6 is expected in 2023.
We conclude this overview of the announcements from this State of Play with Final Fantasy XVI† Title creator Naomi Yoshida invites you to watch an all-new trailer that focuses on the title fights. We feel all the influence of FF VI Remake’s combat system here, with some new features all the same. See you in summer 2023 on PS5.
