Sony PlayStation took centre stage Monday to round off Day 1 of the E3 2015 video games conference. Sony’s announcements focused mainly on upcoming games for the PlayStation platform. Here is a round-up of the biggest video games announcements made by the tech company.
Where to Buy PlayStation Games
The Last Guardian
Sony’s press conference commenced with the announcement that the much-anticipated game The Last Guardian is on its way. The game, which was first announced in 2009, has taken time in coming. The Last Guardian is still in development, but is scheduled to be released in 2016.
A gameplay trailer of a new Hitman game was also shown during the press conference. An exclusive beta version of the game will be available to PlayStation 4 users. Although no release date was mentioned, developer Square Enix has announced that Hitman will be released in December 2015.
Call of Duty Defects to PlayStation
The latest number in the Call of Duty series Black Ops III was shown at the Sony media briefing. But this time the game will not be available to Xbox users, who were previously the main target, as the company behind the game has terminated its partnership with Microsoft to link up with Sony.
PS4 users will get exclusive access to the beta version of the game this August.
Final Fantasy 7
Square Enix also revealed that a remake of the Final Fantasy 7 is in the pipeline. The trailer of the upcoming game, which will be available first on PS4, was shown at the event. No release date was announced.
Horizon: Zero Dawn
A new IP from Guerrilla Games was also announced on Monday. It is called Horizon: Zero Dawn, a game with a hunting-based theme. The game, as seen in its trailer, looks like an action-adventure one.
The highly popular game Destiny will be getting a new addition soon in the form of The Taken King. The new game is expected to further boost the popularity of the original release, which ranks among the biggest ever. It will come with a new mission, map and gear. The Taken King will be released in September.
In addition to the above, upcoming games for the PlayStation include No Man’s Sky, Street Fighter 5, Assassin’s Creed Syndication, World of Final Fantasy and Firewatch.
