The 11 best trailers from PlayStation's Paris Games Week showcase
Sony made quite a big deal out of its press conference for Paris Games Week. In addition to announcing a release date for No Man's Sky and spending ample time on its PlayStation VR (née Project Morpheus) headset, the company showed off dozens of new trailers for upcoming games. Here are some of our favorites.
Call of Duty Black Ops III... but with zombies
The new Call of Duty game will have two separate zombie-related stories (in addition to the actual Black Ops quest). The Giant is a continuation of one of the zombie stories from Black Ops 2, and if you didn't realize there was a story and just wanted to kill zombies... you know... that's an option, too. The Giant will be available on day one (November 6th) as part of the season pass.
Star Wars Battlefront
Han vs. Vader. Leia vs. Boba Fett. Look, maybe it isn't exactly how it happened in the movies, but narrative continuity is taking a backseat to high scores.
Actual footage from Tekken 7 is sparse here — the game has had limited release in Japanese arcades since earlier this year, so it's not hard to find — but the trailer does provide a pretty good look back at the 21-year-old franchise. Tekken 7 will reportedly support PlayStation VR, which may or may not mean you'll be able to have a first-person view of getting punched repeatedly in the face. It's probably not that. Probably.
The developer of Resogun and Super Stardust have what looks like a new shooter where you take on crystal-infused baddies. No idea how it'll actually play, but we imagine it'll be frenetic.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Why this game isn't called Robot Dinosaurs, we'll never know. Here's eight minutes of Horizon Zero Dawn which goes over some of the gameplay elements. Like, for example, taking down robot dinosaurs.
Uncharted 4 multiplayer
In past Uncharted games, multiplayer meant "someone on the couch yelling at the TV while you screw up."
Do you want to be a bear dressed like Hello Kitty climbing a tower of dessert? It's a simple question. Dreams, from the makers of LittleBigPlanet, is an even more abstract creation tool. Here's eight minutes of the developer explaining some of the method to the madness. A beta for Dreams is coming 2016.
While we still don't have a release date for Sony's virtual reality headset, Sony spent ample time at the event talking about its VR-focused lineup, which included a new title from Crytek (Robinson: The Journey), a weirdly on-rails Until Dawn spinoff, and an experience based on the film The Walk, where you walk a tightrope between two buildings.
Gran Turismo Sport
Think of it as Gran Turismo 7 Prologue. Developer Polyphony Digital is releasing its first GT title for the PlayStation 4. Most importantly, it'll be VR compatible.
I'm just gonna steal Polygon's description for this one: "Wild lets you summon giant snake women and more." Okay. Michel Ancel, who created the Rayman series and Beyond Good & Evil, is one of the minds behind the game. No release date, though.
The latest from Quantic Dream (Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls) imagines Detroit as a hub for androids. Not much else is known, but fun fact: you might recall "Kara," the trailer's protagonist, from a tech demo Quantic Dreams showed off back in 2012.
