After months of silence and small updates, Sony has finally shown its hand and brought the house crashing down at their PlayStation 5 Showcase. With some of the biggest announcements of the year, the team at Sony have revealed just how amazing gaming on a PS5 are going to be.
Here’s a recap of everything revealed at the showcase, that will no doubt whet your appetite for more.
At the showcase, the team at Santa Monica Studios unveiled the first look at the highly anticipated sequel that picks up a few years after the events of God of War (2018). The freezing winds of Fimbulwinter have come to Midgard, making survival for Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir in the Norse wilds even more challenging than before.
While the last game built an enormous amount of trust and understanding between father and son, there is still a great deal of complexity in their interactions – especially after the revelation of Atreus’ Giant heritage and the hidden prophecy only Kratos saw. Together, Kratos and Atreus will have to make a choice about which path they will take. Whatever they choose will define the fate of all those living in the Nine Realms as God of War Ragnarök approaches.
Veteran developer Insomniac Games has created two new exciting titles for PlayStation 5 consoles. Firstly, players will continue the journey of both Peter Parker and Miles Morales in their most epic single-player adventure yet with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, coming exclusively to PlayStation 5 consoles in 2023.
Today’s game footage trailer is merely just a glimpse at what’s in store in terms of the new abilities our heroes will acquire, suits they will wear (more on that some other time), and the villains that will try to hunt them down. Speaking of villains, make sure to check out the trailer to see who’s coming to Spidey 2!
Another exciting announcement was the first glimpse of Marvel’s Wolverine. Marvel’s Wolverine is a standalone game being directed by Brian Horton (creative director) and Cameron Christian (game director), who recently led the creative efforts on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Gran Turismo7 is both the culmination of the series which answers the expectations of Gran Turismo fans throughout the years, and at the same time it is a title that marks a beginning of a difficult mission to contain the full breadth of car culture from the past into a single video game. Even more exciting is the firm release date, coming March 4, 2022!
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection coming to PS5 and PC
Naughty Dog is set to release a remastered bundle in 2022.

In the not-too-distant future, mankind is expelled from Earth after losing the battle against the invaders called the NA:tives.
