Sony’s Biggest E3 Announcements

Well, Sony didn’t offer any updates on The Last Guardian, but a slew of other cool new projects were talked about at their E3 press conference. Let’s take a look!

LittleBigPlanet 3 has been announced. It’s the first game in the franchise for the PS4, and sees Sackboy joined by cute new characters like the dog-like Oddsock and Swoop the bird. Best of all, the game will work with all the user-created levels from the first two games. It will land this November.

Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End got its first good trailer. It will see a slightly older Nathan Drake come out of retirement to go on one last globe-trotting adventure, and the title seems to be foreshadowing something dire. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be available in 2015.

The all-new zombie sequel Dead Island 2 is on the way, although the title might be a little misleading. It actually takes place on the mainland, with the undead making their way to California. Expect that in Spring 2015.

If you’re looking for an original IP, and you probably are given all the sequels that have been announced at E3 so far, Sony is teaming up with Dark Souls developer From Software for an all-new game called Bloodborne. It’s an action RPG where players will have to face their fears inside a cursed city.

Suda51 is teaming up with Sony to create the violent new shooter Let It Die. That will land in 2015.

Grand Theft Auto V is coming to the PS4, along with the Xbox One and PC. It will be available on all platforms this fall. Shockingly, PS3 AND Xbox 360 players will have the ability to transfer their GTA Online characters to either the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, whatever one they want.

An open beta test for the game streaming service PlayStation Now will be available in the United States AND Canada starting July 31! Yay! It will work on the PS4, PS3, and Vita, and give you access to a library of more than 100 PS3 titles including Dead Space 3 and Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus. Eventually, the service will include PS4 games.

In other tech updates, the PlayStation TV box, which can play any Vita game and stream PS3 and PS4 games via Remote Play, is finally coming to North America this fall and will cost just $99.

How about a game you don’t have to wait for? Sony unveiled the new downloadable PS4 game called Entwined, and it’s available today.

inFAMOUS First Light is a new DLC expansion for Infamous: Second Son, which will delve into the tragic backstory of the game’s femme fatale, Fetch Walker. There will be plenty of chilling new powers so watch the first trailer to take a look!

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept is an online co-op expansion for Killzone Shadow Fall, where four players take on the Helghast with specialized combat roles: Assault, Marksman, Medic, and Tactician.

Here’s a new trailer for No Man’s Sky, a massive new sci-fi project from Joe Danger developer Hello Games.

Disney buying Lucasfilm and LucasArts has paid off, because Sony has inked a deal with them to help publish a remake of Grim Fandango for the PS4 and Vita. Best of all, creator Tim Schafer is working on it through Double Fine Productions.

A sexy new gameplay trailer for The Order: 1886 has arrived just to make you angry that you can’t play it until next year.

Here’s a new trailer for The Last of Us: Remastered, coming soon to the PS4.

ABZÛ is a watery new game from Giant Squid, a studio founded by some of the people behind Journey. It will take players on an adventure to the depths of the ocean.

It’s getting easier to show off your gaming accomplishments, because Sony is bringing YouTube to the console. Starting later this year, you’ll have the option of instantly uploading game videos to the site by hitting the Share button.

If you need a break from gaming, Sony Pictures Television is working on exclusive content for the PlayStation Network. They announced a live-action adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis’ graphic novel Powers. Fans of the books have been waiting for this for a long time, and Sony says they’re making it because they think gamers will enjoy it. The show will premiere this December, and every PSN user in the United States will get to watch the first episode for free, and PlayStation Plus subscribers will get to watch the whole thing for free.

Sony Pictures unveiled a new trailer for the animated Ratchet and Clank movie, which is due in theatres next year. Creator Insomniac Games is consulting on the film, and they’re also working on a PS4 remake of the very first game in the franchise, which will also arrive in 2015.
