Sony unveiled Thursday night not only the new design of the PlayStation 5, but also a large number of games that will appear for the new game console. These are the most important announcements in a row.
Dutch studio steals the show
In an hour, Sony showed dozens of trailers of games that we can expect on the PlayStation 5. The ending was a game by the Dutch studio Guerrilla Games, which announced the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn from 2017. The new part will be called Horizon: Forbidden West .
Players can expect a tropical world in the game, as well as new mechanical animals that the player will have to take on. The trailer shows that the new part looks a lot nicer on the more powerful PlayStation 5 than Horizon Zero Dawn on the PlayStation 4. It is not yet known when the game will be released.
Old games revived
Recently, new versions of old games are increasingly released. They are often made a lot nicer. Sony joins this trend and announces a 2009 remaster of Demon's Souls . The game is known for its high level of difficulty and is considered the predecessor of the popular Dark Souls games. It is not yet known when the game will be released.
With the game Oddworld: Soulstorm , Sony goes even further back in time: to 1998, the year in which Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus came out. Oddworld: Soulstorm is a new, expanded version of this title. The game was previously announced, but on Thursday evening Sony showed extensive images of the game for the first time.
Two big announcements from Insomniac Games
The studio Insomniac Games is part of Sony and was prominent during the presentation with two large games. The studio's first reveal was Spider-Man: Miles Morales . This is not a new Spider-Man game, but a reissue of the studio's first Spider-Man game, with a nicer design and a more elaborate story. In the game, players take on the role of a new Spider-Man: Miles Morales from the Marvel movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse .
In addition, Insomniac Games has announced a new title for the Ratchet & Clank franchise. The studio showed extensive gameplay footage of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart . With the images it is striking that many enemies and special effects are shown at the same time. That requires a lot of processing power from the game console and therefore gives a first idea of what the new PlayStation 5 is capable of.
Striking new titles
Sony not only bets on existing game series, but also announced completely new titles. For example, Destruction Allstars , which is all about chaos with cars driving in a large arena. This is not about who crosses the finish line first, but who knows how to keep his car the longest.
The new game Kena: Bridge of the Spirits also stood out. In it, players like the girl Kena travel through a magical world. Finally, the game Stray received many positive reactions. In the game, the protagonist is a cat who has to move through a dystopian world full of robots.
