Last week, Microsoft unveiled the anticipated prices and launch dates of the upcoming Xbox Series X and Xbox Series. This week, it’s Sony’s turn. In another online showcase event, Sony has unveiled more games coming for the PS5. The showcase also reveals more details about some of the bigger titles announced in the previous showcase.

Final Fantasy XVI

Four years after the last numbered sequel, 2016’s Final Fantasy XVI, Square Enix has announced the next installment coming exclusively for the PlayStation 5. During the event, Sony released an announcement trailer using PC hardware.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Whereas the previous showcase started with the game’s announcement, Sony has revealed gameplay footage about the upcoming Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The story picks up one year after the events of the original game. Miles Morales has to defend his home in Harlem against the hi-tech thugs of the Tinkerer.

Hogwarts Legacy

For the first time in quite a while, the Harry Potter franchise has announced a new video game. However, this latest entry doesn’t play around with any of the existing films and books. Instead, Hogwarts Legacy is set in the late 1800s. Developed by WB Games, it is coming to next-gen consoles in 2021.

Resident Evil: Village

Sony revealed more gameplay footage from the previously announced Resident Evil: Village (or Resident Evil VIII). Like the previous trailer, Chris Redfield once again makes an appearance — seemingly as an antagonist.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach

Recently, Frictional Games announced a new Amnesia sequel coming this fall. Apparently, Amnesia isn’t the only classic horror game coming back. Five Nights at Freddy’s has resurrected with a new sequel, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. This time around, the game takes place in a more futuristic setting.

Demon’s Souls

We got a new glimpse into the gameplay of the upcoming Demon’s Souls remake. Instead of the former’s janky graphics, the remake fully utilizes the next-gen console for reimagined graphics. Though unmistakably the original, it looks remarkably modern for an early PlayStation 3 title.

PlayStation Plus Collection

Sony is bringing the best games from the PlayStation 4 era into the next generation. Right at launch, the PlayStation Plus Collection is available for download. The collection includes a numerous gallery of PlayStation 4 favorites including God of War, Fallout 4, Uncharted 4, Monster Hunter: World, Bloodborne, Resident Evil 7, and a barrage of other well-known titles.

God of War: Ragnarok

Sony knows how to tease its fans. Right after announcing the PlayStation 5’s launch date and price tags, the showcase ended with a teaser for the next title following the critically acclaimed God of War. God of War: Ragnarok continues where the story left off as Kratos and his son wait for the Black Winter. Though the announcement didn’t reveal much, the game is confirmed to launch sometime next year.

Besides the flurry of notable titles, Sony also unveiled more about other upcoming games including Deathloop, Oddworld: Soulstorm, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, and Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War.

Sony: More PlayStation 4 games coming to PC this year

Days Gone already in the works

Published

on

No matter which side you lean on in the console wars, Sony’s PlayStation 4 carried one of the most robust lineup of console exclusives during its life cycle, especially compared to Microsoft’s own palette of exclusives. You have Bloodborne, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Just Cause 4, just to name a few. Naturally, the brilliant lineup of exclusives helps the company convince people to buy into the PlayStation ecosystem.

However, since the PlayStation 5 is already thriving, Sony no longer has a lot of reasons to keep their exclusives locked in its vault. Now, as confirmed by PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan, more PlayStation games are coming to the PC this year.

In an interview with GQ about the PlayStation 5’s upcoming VR program, Ryan lets loose that “there’s an opportunity to expose those great games to a wider audience.” As game development technology improves over the years, PlayStation can now deliver console exclusive to non-console owners more easily.

Last year, PlayStation broke a lot of ground by releasing the Horizon Zero Dawn base game and expansion pack to the PC. Though the PC port came with a host of niggles, it was still a refreshing change of pace from Sony’s formerly strict release policies. Besides the popular RPG, PlayStation also allowed Quantic Dream to release Detroit: Become Human on PC.

In fact, right on cue, Bend Studios soon announced that the former PlayStation exclusive Days Gone is coming to PC sometime this spring. Given Ryan’s comments, Days Gone is likely just the first round of PC releases for PlayStation 4 games this year.

Blizzard announces Diablo II remaster for this year

Back to hell we go

Published

on

Thought it was released way back in 2012, Diablo III is still one of the most reliable hack-and-slash roleplaying games available today, thanks to consistent development and a thriving season system. Of course, before it got to this point, the franchise thrived on the previous entry, Diablo II, now a classic game praised for its difficulty and fun gameplay. This year, Blizzard is bringing it all back. During the online-only BlizzCon 2021, the company has officially announced a modern remaster, Diablo II Resurrected.

To celebrate the original game’s 21st anniversary, Diablo II Resurrected brings the classic game to a new generation, complete with new graphics. During its time, the original game had crude, but reliable graphics laid over an isometric format. As shown in the short announcement trailer, Diablo II Resurrected features new graphics similar to that found in the third entry, Diablo III.

Diablo II Resurrected will include both the base game and the 2001 expansion, Lord of Destruction. While the base game features the franchise’s titular villain, Diablo, the expansion pits the player against the third Prime Evil, Baal.

Strewn across five acts, the game takes players across differing difficulties and seven different character classes: Amazon, Assassin, Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Paladin, and Sorceress.

The HD remaster will launch sometime this year for the PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series X/S. Notably, the PC version will allow cross-platform progression across the different console version.

While Blizzard is taking a step back with this announcement, the company is also developing a mobile version, Diablo Immortal, and the next main entry to the series, Diablo IV.
