After Microsoft took the E3 stage yesterday, it was Sony’s turn to step up to the plate, and boy did they knock it out of the park announcing the games that would be released in the coming year.
Here are some of the highlights of the press event that went down at 9am SGT.
Uncharted: Lost Legacy
Staring Claudia Black, Uncharted: Lost Legacy is scheduled to hit store shelves 22 August 2017.
Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds
Having announced an expansion DLC for the game earlier this year, we got a first glimpse of said expansion at E3. Like many who got their hands on the original game, I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to experience Aloy’s latest adventures.
We got a longer look at the post-apocalyptic zombie survival game announced at last year’s E3. The current trailer showed off mechanics like manipulating zombie hordes, and stealth.
Monster Hunter World
Having taken years away from Sony’s consoles, Monster Hunter is back! Capcom’s larger than life hunting game will be making it’s return to the Playstation in Early 2018. It will also be released for XBox One in Early 2018, and PC at a later date.
Shadow Of The Colossus Remake
Cult classic, Shadow of the Colossus will be remade for the Playstation, with enhanced graphics and technology.
Call of Duty: WWII
Announced at a Call of Duty event earlier this year, CoD:WWII will be available November 3rd.
Not to forget Playstation’s proprietary Virtual Reality system, Sony showed off a collection of games coming to the PSVR, these included: Star Child,
military shooter Bravo Team,
psychological thriller The Inpatient,

God Of War
Yet another game announced at last year’s E3 got a longer look. This time it was God of War, the showcase gave players a larger sense of how the game would play out. God of War will be available in Early 2018.
Detroit: Become Human
Players step into the shoes of the leader of an android uprising in this choose your adventure cinematic experience. Developed by the folk at Quantic Studios who brought us gems such as Heavy Rain, I am certainly looking forward to this one.
Finally, Sony showed off Insomniac Game’s Spiderman, strongly influenced by the Arkham series, the game looks impressive and seems like a throw back to the original Spiderman game that was on the first Playstation. Spiderman will be out Early 2018.
