Another episode of PlayStation’s State of Play has been and gone, and a whole host of news has come out of Sony’s latest livestream. Luckily for you, we’re here to bring you all of the news that came out of the final episode of State of Play of 2019. Let’s start with the big stuff:
Resident Evil 3 Remake Confirmed
State of Play was used to officially confirm the heavily-rumoured Resident Evil 3 Remake. Interestingly, the remake of the 1999 PlayStation classic will actually serve as the single-player portion of Project Resistance, the co-op survival shooter which Capcom announced back in September. The game will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on Friday 3rd April 2020, and pre-ordering will bag you the Resident Evil 3 Classic Costume Pack. Check out the announcement trailer below:
Ghost of Tsushima teaser trailer
This actually closed out today’s stream, but it’s bloody important so I’m including it early on. Ghost of Tsushima got a very brief teaser trailer during State of Play, which was so brief that it probably may as well not exist. It ended abruptly just when it looked like it was about to get going, but the full trailer will be shown at The Game Awards on Thursday 12th December. I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer to see some more of Sucker Punch Productions’ highly-anticipated title.
Untitled Goose Game is coming to PS4 on 17th December
Kicking off State of Play was the reveal that Untitled Goose Game is coming to the PS4, with a release date scheduled for Tuesday 17th December. Originally releasing for PC and Nintendo Switch back in September, Untitled Goose Game allows you to take on the role of a horrible goose, being an absolute pain in the arse as you steal villagers keys or scare the living daylights out of them while they’re minding their own business and reading the paper. Incidentally, the game will also be coming to the Xbox One on the same date. Check out the trailer below:
Spellbreak enters closed beta in Spring 2020
Spellbreak is a third-person magic-based battle royale game which features snazzy visuals and fast-paced action. The game will be entering closed beta on PS4 in Spring 2020, with a full console release coming later in the year. What’s that? You want to see a trailer? No problem!
Dreams gets a release date
Media Molecule’s game creation game was given a great new trailer along with a confirmed release date – the game will officially release for PlayStation 4 on Friday 14th February 2020, so get ready to get those creative juices flowing.
Superliminal is coming to PS4
Pillow Castle’s mind-bending first-person puzzler is coming to PS4 after its release on the Epic Games Store on November 12th. PS4 players will have to wait a while though, as the game won’t be landing on Sony’s console until April 2020.
Paper Beast announced for PSVR
From the creators of Another World, Paper Beast is an upcoming PSVR title which will allow players to explore a living ecosystem which is “inhabited with endearing paper creatures”. According to the official description which accompanies the trailer (which you can see below), Paper Beast will allow players to “interact with quirky animals and shape the environment to overcome obstacles and solve challenging puzzles”. The game, which will launch in Q1 2020, will include the following features:
- Explore a dreamlike universe as you embark on a VR adventure filled with discovery.
- Encounter intelligent wildlife and watch them adapt their behaviour to the player’s actions. Establish meaningful connections with them as they guide you through the mysterious world of Paper Beast.
- Solve environmental puzzles by playing with the elements and the terrain: water, ice, sand…
- A full ecosystem set in a living, breathing dynamic virtual universe.
- An organic origami art style captures the world of Paper Beast.
- An extensive physic simulation system lies at the core of Paper Beast, powering everything from creature locomotion to terrain deformation, playing an active part in many of the puzzles adventures encountered.
- Immersive ambient OST by Roly Porter and TsuShiMaMire making full use of a binaural audio direction.
Kingdom Hearts 3’s Re Mind DLC announced
Square Enix’s fantastic Kingdom Hearts 3 is getting a piece of premium DLC early next year. Entitled Kingdom Hearts 3: Re Mind, the DLC will set you back $29.99, and will be available from Thursday 23rd January 2020, featuring “new playable characters and exciting new battles”. Check out the trailer below:
Predator: Hunting Grounds launches in April 2020
Predator: Hunting Grounds will launch for PS4 and PC via the Epic Games Store on Friday 24th April 2020. The asymmetrical multiplayer shooter will allow players to choose from three different classes of Predator: the Hunter possesses a versatile hunting style and balanced weapon choice; the Berserker possesses savage power and extra health; and the Scout will possess increased speed and ultimate stamina. As a Fireteam member, players will “wield a state-of-the-art arsenal, from pistols to assault rifles, shotguns, grenades and heavy weapons”, whereas those who take on the role of the Predator will be able to “hunt with deadly alien tech including the shoulder-mounted Plasma Caster, Combistick, Smart Disc, Wrist Blades, and more.” Pre-ordering the game will bag you an exclusive ‘87 Predator Skin and early access to the “Ole Painless” Mini-Gun.
Babylon’s Fall reveal
State of Play also granted us a first proper reveal for Babylon’s Fall. Developed by PlatinumGames and published by Square Enix, Babylon’s Fall looks like an intense third-person hack-and-slasher which will feature fast-paced, fluid combat and monstrous boss battles. No more information (such as a release date) was given, but Square Enix is promising to give us more details “next Summer”.
And that wraps up all of the news which came out of the final episode of State of Play of 2019. What do you make of these announcements and trailers? Let us know in the comments below.
