All the biggest announcements and trailers from Sony PlayStation at E3 2018

For 2018, Sony decided to keep its E3 keynote very focused. The show was almost entirely dedicated to four upcoming games that we already know about: The Last of Us Part II, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, and Insomniac’s Spider-Man. But while it wasn’t as packed as years past, it did offer deep looks at some excellent games. It was also pretty damn gruesome, and Sony managed to sneak in a couple of surprises as well. If you missed the show, you can check it all out right here.

Death Stranding’s gruesome new trailer has babies, toenails, actual gameplay

It’s hard to believe, but the latest trailer for Hideo Kojima’s mysterious Death Stranding shows the actual game for the first time. But don’t worry: it’s still plenty weird, and there’s no shortage of babies.

Watch the very first gameplay trailer for The Last of Us Part II

We’ve known that a sequel to The Last of Us has been in the works for some time, but Sony finally showed how the game will actually play. After a tender opening starring Ellie, the trailer made a dramatic shift to the brutal action you can expect from the game. It’s a meaty video, too: you can check out nearly 12 minutes of the game in the clip above.

Dang, that Last of Us Part II kiss was some great animation

The latest Last of Us Part II trailer was full of action and violence, but one scene stood out: a simple kiss. If nothing else, it was a great example of the animation prowess of developer Naughty Dog.

Ghost of Tsushima is a slick PS4 samurai game from the creators of Infamous

We also got a nice long look at Ghost of Tsushima, the next action game from Sucker Punch, a studio best known for the superhero adventure Infamous. It looks absolutely gorgeous, and it has what appears to be a satisfying blend of combat and stealth. No word on a release date, though.

Spider-Man for PS4 shows off its open-world web-swinging in new trailer

Insomniac’s new Spider-Man comes out in September, which isn’t too far from now. If you cant wait, there’s a lengthy look at the most exciting part of the game: web-swinging. There are definite Arkham vibes, but with a much lighter tone.

Kingdom Hearts III’s multiple E3 trailers have pirates, Olaf, but few concrete answers

For the third time this E3, Square Enix showed off a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III, and for the third time, we got a glimpse at a new Disney world in the game. First, it was Frozen, then Ratatouille, and tonight, it was Pirates of the Caribbean.

Control is a time-bending new game from the developers of Quantum Break

One of just a handful of announcements at Sony’s event was Control, a new game from Remedy, the studio behind games like Quantum Break and Alan Wake. It has some trippy time-control combat and looks wonderfully weird.

Dark Souls creator From Software is making a VR game called Déraciné

From Software has been busy at E3 this year. In addition to announcing the action game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the studio also showed off its first foray into virtual reality, with the PSVR title Déraciné.

The Resident Evil 2 remake is coming on January 25th

Three years ago, Capcom said it was remaking Resident Evil 2, but we haven’t seen much of it since then. Today, we not only got a trailer but a release date: the game will be out in January. It’s coming to the Xbox One and PC in addition to the PS4.

Comments

Amazing trailers. But terrible showcase format. Probably the best digital kiss scene ever made.

Yesterday I wrote somewhere that I thought Square Enix had the most talented graphic artists alive working for them. SqEnix and Naughty Dog should collaborate and make the most visually realistic game ever.

I think it actually says good things about our society today that my reaction to that kiss scene is "meh".

It’s two people kissing, people! It just feels kind of self-conscious putting it at both the beginning and end of a trailer for a game about shooting zombies (oh, and other humans, who are no doubt the "real enemy" yet again).

My reaction to that kiss was anything but meh. My reaction was damn!

Well, it doesn’t really. Its just too obvious that its pandering the LBGTXYZ and it what gets the publicity now, its just another box to tick off. so yeh understanding the reason for it, agree with meh, gloss over it, and hope the gameplay and story is good.

My only reaction to the kiss scene is why did they amp up the freckles on the two girls? Damn, I guess melanoma doesn’t end in a zombie apocalypse.

Ghost of Tsushima isn’t a patch on Ghost Dog

Holy crap TLOU looks amazing. Sad that some people can’t get over a lesbian kiss.

Crazy isn’t it? You see people smashing each others faces in with hammers and whatnot which is all hunky-dory, but GASP oh my goodness a lesbian kiss?!? It cannot be! BLASPHEMY!

Seriously, people who stumble over a simple kiss should really take a long hard look at themselves.

I’m just surprised how many people didn’t play the DLC for the first game and are just learning Ellie is gay. That DLC was amazing!

Yeah, loved the DLC too.

Ghost of Tsushima has an incredible artstyle and lighting! Gorgeous!
Didnt care so much for TLOU2 but Naughty Dog demonstrates once again who is best in class! Masterful animation, characters and atmosphere!

I’m probably in the minority in this… but the more I see Death Stranding the more certain I become that it’s a hard pass. PT was his peak, this is just… awkward.

I’m still not sure what kind of game it is…

Tactical espionage survival horror? I have no idea either. We see guys with guns and black tar monsters after apparently being introduced to it all as a speculum. I’m so confused by it all.

interesting to see how you can only discuss one or two games in Sony’s event because there wasn’t much else to talk about…the hard truth is overall it sucked. Discussing some of the same titles that were announced 3yrs ago. And still completely ignoring final fantasy 7 and shemnue 3…again announced years ago and showing nothing. Yaaay..lets all play VR tetris…Geesh..!!!
