E3, one of the largest gaming conventions in the US, presented games from a variety of triple-A developers. Here is a look at Sony’s proposed line up for this year, everything for the Playstation console to VR.
E3: Sony Game List
Uncharted 4: The Lost Legacy
As a critically acclaimed series, Naughty Dog definitely wanted more adventures, but with Chloe as the protagonist instead of Nathan Drake. In Uncharted 4: The Lost Legacy, Chloe is accompanied by a mercenary for hire, Nadine, who was previously on an enemy. The concept of this new DLC was covered by EloTalk in this article, though the audience received a new trailer premiered at E3. Take a look at the amazing trailer for this Playstation exclusive below:
Zombie games never die, and in Days Gone, players get to defeat these monsters to their heart’s content. This is an open world survival horror action game with QTE elements. The protagonist is shown going after his friend, Manny, on a motorbike with some kind of turbo upgrade. Even still, the hero has an ability where he can sense what he’s looking for – a common element in detective-style games. Here is the link to the website for more information and below are a couple of screenshots from Days Gone.
God of War
It wouldn’t be a conference if there wasn’t mention of the amazing hack and slash series, God of War. The trailer presents the concept of Kratos having a child which he takes with him on his journey. If that wasn’t bad enough, facing the world serpent will be interesting, to say the least. Kratos is in an unfamiliar land where the Norse Gods reside–check out the trailer here.
Marvel dominates the market with some fantastic superhero stories, and video games are no different. At E3, Sony presented the action-adventure game with rogue-like elements titled Spiderman with all its web-slinging goodness. Developed by Insomniac Games, players experience an open world game filled with gang members that must be thwarted. Watch the trailer below:
Detroit: Become Human
This new IP is set in a dystopian world where players are Androids fighting for freedom from humans. The plot centers on the android Markus, who grants others their freedom so that he can lead a rebellion. It appears that the game will not shy away from difficult topics like free will and genetic discrimination. As a story driven game, Detroit: Become Human‘s narrative will adapt based on player choice. Will players incite violence or push a peaceful agenda? Check out the website for more information.
In this flashy trailer, Sony showed off its online-only multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Bungie. There was recent news of Activision joining forces with Blizzard, making Destiny 2 the first non-Blizzard created game accessed through the launcher. Players have access to the same three classes from the original Destiny, and it has been confirmed that no new classes will be added. Take a look at the trailer below:
Call of Duty: WW2
Unlike other Call of Duty games, this one contains multiplayer. It will have features like double-jumping, jet-packs, and wall-running capabilities. Take a look at the website for more information.
Monster Hunter: World
Capcom surprised crowds with the announcement of a new installment in the Monster Hunter franchise with Monster Hunter: World, stepping away from its Nintendo platform releases. As an action role-playing game played in third-person, players take the role of a hunter who has the duty to hunt down or kill monsters. There are a variety of weapons that can be used as well as combat abilities. Monster Hunter: World releases for Playstation 4 and PC, and has both single player and multiplayer modes. Take a look at the trailer here.

Unfortunately, there were a couple games missing from this list. The audience saw nothing of some critical games like The Last of Us 2, Final Fantasy VII‘s remake, and Death Stranding. While Final Fantasy is expected to be a long time in the making, The Last of Us 2 is likely pushed back until 2018, after Uncharted 4 makes its mark. Death Stranding is left up to the devices of Hideo Kojima, and the last glimpse of the game was six months ago.
