Sony promised one more State of Play even before the year ended and planned it for December 10th, 2019. With it came news of several eagerly anticipated titles, a few indies and a Goose. So no particular order here’s everything that was shown in the final State of Play for 2019.
Resident Evil 3 officially announced
Seems like I’ve talked about this game an awful lot today. But for good reason. Capcom finally let the zombie out of the bag announced that we’ll get our hands on the game on April 3rd, 2020.
Ghost of Tsushima lives
It’s been quite some time since Naughty Dog either talked about or showed off anything for Ghost of Tsushima. Many, including myself, had speculated that the title may end up being pushed as a PlayStation 5 title. However, that’s not the case as we saw a few seconds of the game today. With the promise that we’ll find out more during the 2019 Game Awards Show, which takes place on December 12, 2019.
Kingdom Hearts 3 Re:Mind DLC releases on January 23, 2020
While already knew about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 Re:Mind DLC, it was nice to see it in action. This new DLC includes a new playable character and will drag Kingdom Hearts fans further down the rabbit hole. Look for this on January 23, 2020.
Honk, Honk – Untitled Goose Game heads to the PlayStation 4
Her’s another game that was leaked ahead of the official announcement. Sure, we already knew it was going to happen because the developers of the game already said so. We just didn’t know when. What can you expect from a game such as this? Well, check out our review of the game here and find out. It’s also heading to the Xbox One and Switch if you don’t own a PS4. I can already hear my son talking about this game non-stop.
Just a little bit of action with Square Enix’s Babylon’s Fall
Ah yes, Square Enix’s new action title, Babylon’s Fall. They teased this a while back and didn’t say much afterward. We still don’t much about the game either, other than features a lot of action and that PlatinumGames is involved. If I’m being honest, the gameplay reminded me Nier: Automata. Which isn’t a bad thing at all. Here’s to hoping we see more about this game in the upcoming months.
Dreams to exit early access in February 2020
Media Molecule’s latest endeavor, Dreams, has captured the hearts and minds of countless people. The things I’ve seen that have been created in this game are truly amazing. However, it’s only available via early access. Well, that’s a thing of the past or will be as Dreams will leave early access next February 14th, 2020 and will be available via retail.
Predator: Hunting Grounds releases on April 24, 2020
Sony’s upcoming asymmetrical multiplayer game, Predator: Hunting Grounds now has a release date. It’s sort of like Turtle Rock’s ill-fated title, Evolve, a team of four players faces off against a vastly overpowered Predator controlled by one person. We’ve seen the movies, now we’ll be able to play the game. Now, who’ll be the one asking the Predator if they want some candy?
Spellbreak – a battle royale, with Mages?
Other battle royale games feature people with guns and axes, which I suppose is fine and all. But they can’t hold a candle to Spellbreak, an upcoming battle royale game that features Mages. Yep, you’ll be able to put a hurting on your opponents with magic spells. I’ve played a demo of this and while I thought it was rough, it was fun. Now Spellbreak is heading to the PS4 via early access.
The Origami Animal Kingdom Sandbox VR game, Paper Beast
First introduced a few months back, Paper Beast is an upcoming sandbox VR title that will have players interact with the creatures made of paper origami. The devs have been quiet since they first announced the game, but now we have a release window of Q1 2020.
Superliminal will bend your mind
Superliminal is a first-person puzzle game that wraps your perception of reality. Previously released for the PC, Superliminal is now making its way to the PlayStation 4 next year. It’s sort of like Portal and Stanley Parable, all rolled into one.
