PS5, PS VR 2, what to expect for this edition?

What to expect for this State of Play? Sony has only confirmed two pieces of information: games from third-party developers and PSVR 2 will be featured. A quick overview of potential announcements and rumours.

Price, release date and PS VR 2 games

Sony announced the color up front. This State of Play will be an opportunity to learn more about PSVR 2. Beyond a release date, price and other information, the publisher should make a point of presenting some of the 20 games that will accompany the launch of the headset. There will for sure be Horizon Call of The Mountain, the virtual reality spin-off that should be the killer app for PS VR 2. An appearance by London Studio, to whom we owe the excellent Blood and Truth, is hoped . We know that he is working on an online PS5 game, probably with VR on the program. Also expected are Impulse Gear for Farpoint 2 and First Contact Entertainment (Firewall Zero Hour)

On the rumor side, there are rumors of a return of Killzone in VR, also supervised by Guerrilla. A Call of Duty VR experience linked to Modern Warfare 2 has also been talked about in recent days following a mention of virtual reality on the PS Store. Hideo Kojima could surprise with a VR project in addition to Death Stranding 2. A few other third-party developers have confirmed they are working on PSVR 2 games lately. This will undoubtedly be an opportunity for them to highlight them. We think of Firmament from the developers of Myst or Low-Fi (an SF sandbox à la Blade Runner). And why not an officialization of Ghostbusters VR, Among Us VR, Resident Evil 4 VR on the PSVR 2? In the radius of theories, some assume that Gran Turismo 7 will be compatible with PlayStation VR 2, and this since the first trailer. And a deal to wear Half-Life Alyx at the launch of the PS5 VR headset? Everything is possible.

Square Enix to set the State of Play on fire?

Final Fantasy 16 State of Play

Question PS4 and PS5 games, if a publisher can ignite on State of Play it is Square Enix. The publisher has confirmed that he will announcements around Final Fantasy this month in order to celebrate not only the 35e anniversary of the saga but also the 25e of FF VII. It’s been confirmed that a new Final Fantasy 16 trailer is coming very soon, and the conference seems like the perfect time.

The next numbered episode should go into detail and show its gameplay mechanics more fully. Naoki Yoshida, producer of the game, had said that FF16 would reappear when its launch was near. It’s a safe bet that the trailer will be accompanied by a release date. The other highly anticipated game is FF7 Remake 2 which could finally be teased in June. It remains to be seen whether Square Enix will take advantage of the State of Play or favor the Summer Game Fest conference, like a certain FF9 Remake mentioned in the Nvidia leak. Forspoken could also be a candidate for this SoP, just to recall its PS5 console exclusivity.

The return of Hogwarts Legacy and Stray? Third-party games in the spotlight

Hogwarts Legacy PS5

And the other partner games? Hogwarts Legacy could make an appearance there, especially since Sony has a partnership with Warner for the marketing aspect of the game. A certain Street Fighter 6 is also expected to present itself with a mouth-watering trailer. fighting game fans.

The independent scene should also be highlighted, and we can hope for a return of Little Devil Inside with a release date. Ditto for Stray, the cute cyberpunk game with the little cat, which could land on July 19 according to several leaks. Obviously, we are not immune to some surprises with the reveals of new partner games.

Can we expect God of War Ragnarok and The Last of Us Remake?

God of War Ragnarok State of Play

The big question is will the PS5 exclusives still make an appearance? If there is one that players are eagerly awaiting, it is God of War Ragnarok. If nothing suggests such an announcement, Sony may be saving a “one more thing” of size for the end. We know that the game could soon announce its release date, presumed for next September. Especially since God of War will be offered on PS Plus in June 2022, a strategy that the publisher had used when announcing the launch period for The Last of Us 2.

And speaking of Naughty Dog’s cult license, a certain The Last of Us Remake is also expected at the turn. Bloomberg confirmed its existence some time ago and since we know that it could be accompanied by TLOU 2’s multiplayer, the Factions mode. If PlayStation’s home exclusives aren’t showing up, it’s likely that some will be kept warm for the Summer Game Fest conference or for the back-to-school PlayStation Showcase.
