Sony dropped some interesting news from their Paris Games Week 2017 keynote with new game announcements and more on upcoming games.
Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds (PS4 - November 7th, 2017)
The expansion to Guerrilla Games' open world future where mankind has fallen and now huddles together in tribes as they carve out an existence in a world teeming with robotic 'wildlife'. The Frozen Wilds calls Aloy to a new region known as The Cut which borders on the Banuk territory. The peak of a mysterious mountain is her destination with all-new machines, quests, weapons, settlements, abilities and more for Aloy to explore, collect and master.
Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4 - 2018)
Marvel and Insomniac Games are working on an original story for Spider-Man in this open-world crime fighting adventure where an established and experienced Spider-Man fights to keep New York City safe. We don't just control the friendly neighbourhood superhero but also his normal 'mundane' self as Peter Parker. Insomniac aren't following the latest films from Marvel or even any comic-book - this is their 'Batman: Arkham'.
Detroit: Become Human (PS4 - 2018)
A neo-noir thriller from David Cage's Quantic Dream that explores androids that are 'awakening' and the subsequent struggle as mankind quickly moves to dismantle a possible uprising. It plays similarly to Quantic's Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain where the player must make decisions and deal with quick-time events, either succeeding or failing. Detroit: Become Human follows three androids; the escaped Kara, the hunter Connor and the emancipating Markus.
Ghost of Tsushima (PS4 - TBA)
Developer Sucker Punch, the creator of the super-powered inFamous series, has been busy working in 13th century Japan in an open-world adventure where a Samurai is defeated and humiliated at the hands of the invading Mogul Empire. To survive and repel the invasion the Samurai must leave behind his own traditions to embrace unconventional methods.
The Hong Kong Massacre (PC, PS4 - 2018)
A top-down twin-stick shooter from a two-man Swedish indie studio, and it's set in modern-day Hong Kong where you go on a rampage to hunt down the leader of a criminal gang. You'll be shooting through gang-infested territories across Hong Kong as you track down people within the group to get more clues. Bullet time will aid your shooting frenzy allowing you to survive the frantic chaos. It evokes some Hotline Miami vibes, and even some cyberpunk with all that neon.
Concrete Genie (PS4 - 2018)
An interesting adventure where a young teen named Ash explores the decaying alleyways of his hometown Denska and finds a world of magic and mischievous monsters he can create through his paintings. Bullied by his peers, Ash retreats more into this fantasy of 'living landscapes' and finds he can purify the polluted walls of his town, possibly saving Denska.
Megalith (PS4/PSVR - 2018)
Described as a 'hero shooter', Megalith is a timed-exclusive for PlayStation VR. It's a colourful team-based multiplayer game where you become a titan battling for supremacy with the ultimate goal to become a god. Disruptive Games say you'll need to use locomotion, strategy and destructible environments to win as you define your own combat style. As a titan you have your massive size and considerable firepower in virtual reality to ascend to godhood, or be forgotten.
Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis (PS4 - December 13th, 2017)
The final major single-player expansion/add-on for Final Fantasy XV where Ignis gets his turn to tell his story. The new adventure happens concurrently with the main game to help fill in more gaps, and you get to pilot a speed boat. If you want to remain surprised by what's in Episode Ignis you're better off not watching the trailer - spoilers ahead!
