Sony’s Paris Games Week event has revealed a new game from inFamous creators Sucker Punch and a host of new VR titles.
After a relatively quiet E3, and a no-show at Gamescom in August, Sony has used the previously obscure Paris Games Week to announce a range of new games, and to give a more detailed look at those we already know about.
The headline reveal was probably the new trailer for The Last Of Us Part II, but there were also new trailers for other announced games, which you can see below, including God Of War and Spider-Man.
Days Gone was noticeable by its absence though, which is interesting as not only did the game fail to impress at E3 but it looks increasingly similar to the new The Last Of Us Part II.
Ghost Of Tsushima
The biggest new announcement was a new game from inFamous developer Sucker Punch, who haven’t released a game since 2014. Now we know what they’ve been up to though: a new open world action stealth game called Ghost Of Tsushima.
It’s set during the Mongol invasions of Japan in the 13th century, and as you can see from the trailer looks properly beautiful.
Despite Japan’s enormous influence on the video games industry there’s never really been a definitive samurai simulator, so hopefully Sucker Punch, who are based in Washington state, can do better.
It certainly looks the part, but despite the developer being quiet for so long there’s still no hint of a release date.
One of the few games to get a confirmed 2018 release date, this is the new title from the creators of Entwined. That wouldn’t necessarily fill us with a lot of confidence, except the debut trailer looked really good. As you can see, it involves a young tyke with some sort of magic paintbrush, which he uses to create living murals on the side of buildings.
Despite what you might assume from the way the cursor looks the game is apparently controlled solely via the DualShock controller, with no mention so far of PlayStation Move. Not only is the game very pretty but we like the look of the puzzles too, with the various things you create being able to interact with the real world by creating electricity or fire.
