This year’s E3 was already great before Sony even presented. And, it just got even better. I’m going to touch on some of the biggest announcements Sony made during its 90-minute conference.
The Last Guardian Returns
The Last Guardian returns to E3 and is coming to PS4 in 2016. The reveal will be touted as one of PlayStation’s biggest of the night. It was great to see it again, but the game doesn’t look that much different than when we saw it years ago. Still, it’s from Team Ico. That’s reason enough to be excited.
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Guerilla Games is shedding the Killzone series for something completely new. It features cavemen after an apocalypse with an interesting twist. Robotic wildlife roams the land. Guerilla Games is known for impressive graphics, and they don’t disappoint with Horizon: Zero Dawn. This might be my favorite game announcement from Sony’s conference.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
If you ever owned a PS2, you probably could barely contain your excitement when Sony announced a Final Fantasy VII remake. The remake will make its way to PS4 first with other platforms to follow. No word on a release date, but you can check out the trailer below.
Shenmue 3 is happening?!?!?
Wondering why your favorite gaming sites and even Kickstarter crashed for a few minutes? Shenmue 3 was revealed at Sony’s press conference. The team behind it are using Kickstarter to fund the game. The goal is set at $2 million, which probably won’t last the night. More than $700,000 has been pledged as I write. Shenmue fans have wanted a third entry for years, and it’s finally happening.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Can Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End look any better? Tonight’s E3 demo shows it can. Just watch it. Words don’t do it justice.
So, yeah. That just happened. Those were the biggest announcements, and I didn’t even touch on the PS4/Call of Duty partnership, Destiny: The Taken King or several other major game announcements.
Wow. What a day. Today was gamers’ Christmas. If I had to pick a winner, it’s probably Sony just for the sheer amount of variety in the games shown off. I thought Microsoft also had a fantastic conference. Now, how the hell am I going to have the money or time to play all these fantastic games? Ahh, it’s a beautiful problem to have.
Let me hear it. What was your favorite moment of Sony’s PlayStation E3 conference?
