PlayStation 5 Reveal Overview | June 2020

After many rumors and one delay, Sony's "Future of Gaming" PlayStation 5 reveal event finally happened on June 11, 2020. The stream, which lasted a little over an hour, showcased the games releasing on the new generation of PlayStation consoles. But before we list all the games coming out later this year and further on into 2021, let's start with here the conference ended: the hardware reveal.

The trailer showcases TWO new PlayStation 5 systems: the PS5 and the PS5 Digital. Along with this, a few other items are introduced including the PlayStation DualSense controller and its charging station, and an HD camera, similar to the one that launched with the PlayStation 4, the Pulse 3D wireless headset, and a media remote. Along with a similar design aesthetic, it's also important to note that the design steps away from the black and grey of PlayStation consoles of the past. With that said, let's move on to the plethora of games coming out for the system.

Insomnia Games opened the show with a teaser for Spider-Man: Miles Morales. This sequel to their critically acclaimed 2018 game will be a launch title for the PS5. Later in the show Insomnia also revealed the next Ratchet & Clank game, Rift Apart. Sackboy returns once more with a new game titled Sackboy: A Big Adventure. PlayStation's exclusive driving sim, Gran Turismo, is getting a seventh installment but no release date yet. After lots of whispers, we finally got the first look at the remake of Demon's Souls. The game has no release date but is being remade by JAPAN Studio and Bluepoint Games.

A few years ago Capcom shocked audiences worldwide when they announced Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. The game received critical success upon release with many stating that it was a "return to form" for the survival horror series. Now we have the sequel to RE7 in the form of Resident Evil 8: Village. RE8 is set to release sometime 2021. We also saw the first gameplay preview for the next game from the studio behind the Dishonored series, DEATHLOOP. The game will launch on PC and PS5 later this year.

Last but certainly not least, we got the announcement trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to 2017's Horizon: Zero Dawn from Guerrilla. The trailer shows even more machine-infused wildlife as well as a new threat with Aloy returning as the heroine for the journey. Horizon: Forbbiden West does not have a release date just yet.
