- Sony to host long-awaited PS5 showcase tomorrow.
- The event will focus on upcoming PS5 titles including first and third-party games.
- Here are five games we hope make the cut, including Horizon Zero Dawn, Bluepoint Games’ PS5 remake, and more.
Short of an unforeseen delay, Sony’s highly-anticipated PS5 blowout is finally going ahead tomorrow.
The excitement among gamers is palpable and understandably so. We’ll be putting months of speculation, rumors, and Sony’s frustrating drip-feed of PS5 info behind to make space for fleshed-out, meaty details about the next-gen.
We may even get a glimpse of the console itself alongside a selection of upcoming first-party and third-party games.
Here are five games we want to see at the PS5 showcase this Thursday.
Horizon Zero Dawn 2
Bolstered by a glut of rumors and explicit developer teases, Sony showcasing Horizon Zero Dawn 2 seems almost inevitable at this point.
In a sense, there will be a lot of disappointment among PlayStation fans if a sequel to Guerilla Games 2017’s action role-playing game doesn’t pop up on Thursday.
And, what a way to introduce Sony’s next-gen vision. Horizon Zero Dawn is among the most graphically impressive PS4 exclusives, and we have a lot of faith in Guerilla repeating the feat for the PS5.
Bluepoint Games’ PS5 Project
Bluepoint Games PS5 remake was among the first confirmed titles for the next-gen console. Yet, to this day, to which game the studio will apply its proven remaking wizardry remains a well-guarded secret.
Until recently, the consensus was that Bluepoint’s secretive project was a remake of From Software’s Demon’s Souls. The title that set the Japanese developer off on a decade long run of acclaimed titles is certainly showing its age. If Bluepoint Games’ stellar work on Shadow of the Colossus acts as a measure of what to expect, we should be in for a treat.
In recent weeks, rumors and insiders have fielded the idea of a Bloodborne remake for PS5 (and PC).
Either of these (or both) will please fans and act as a welcome stopgap ahead of more Elden Ring news.
SIE Japan Studio’s Next Project
From Bloodborne to The Last Guardian by way of Shadow of the Colossus, Japan Studio had a hand in some of this generation’s best games.
We’ve heard very little for a while now. Such a stellar track record means we’re champing at the bit to find out something about the Studio’s first PS5 effort whatever that may be.
God of War
A sequel to 2018’s God of War stands alongside Horizon Zero Dawn 2 as one of the most widely discussed speculative picks for a spot during Thursday’s showcase.
