It's like it's 2005 all over again

We can finally I conclude, after a few quiet months, The season of video game summer action is now well underway, with Sony launching its big “State Of Play” press conference today – just a week before the Geoff Keighley Summer Games Festival, which we can safely assume will bury us all under a torrent of game trailers. very soon.

PlayStation has taken a good shot at starting an impromptu burial today, though, with a raft of exclusives and big titles coming out either in a few weeks, or next year, depending on where they are in the hype cycle. . (We also got some additional tidbits of info about PSVR 2, which has gotten a bunch of vampire Content whenever it actually appears; as such Adopted Optimistic Forever From the original devices, we can only hope for a successful launch of the new device.)

Anyway: Here are the biggest trailers from today’s state of play:


Resident Evil 4

Normally, it would be an indictment of a list of trailers whose most exciting entry would undoubtedly be a remake of a 17-year-old game. but new Resident Evil 4 Slightly different, because both because the former R of Capcomemakes from the early entries to the franchise were generally great, and because Resident Evil 4 everything is okay… Resident Evil 4. Watching the classic game in action in the company’s latest engine is undoubtedly exciting. We can’t wait to see what iconic sequences like Village Attack or Cabin Defense look like when this remake of an old favorite arrives next year.

Final Fantasy XVI

When we look at the 16th major series Final Fantasy Back in 2020, it was remarkable What is the price Game of thrones DNA seems to have slipped into the series’ standard mix – what with all the gritty violence, muted color and political maneuvering. All of those things are still featured in the new trailer for “Dominance,” but there’s also plenty of eye candy, especially in the form of the focus on the series’ lovable summons, who now act almost like kaiju as war and bickering unfold under their feet. Add a combat system that feels like an evolution of the hard work of the series Final Fantasy 7 Remake And the strange paradisean interesting package that is currently scheduled for June 2023 arrival.

stray

The phrase “cool cat exploring the world of robot” has always been an easy sell for a lot of people; There is a reason stray made Most anticipated games of 2022. Now we finally have a little better look at what a futuristic exploration game from BlueTwelve Studio will entail: a lot of wandering, some stealth, and some very cute cat sounds. It is still not clear how much stray You’ll actually add up to once in our hands, but the trailer definitely promises something funky.

Street Fighter 6

Let’s start with the biggest point of the new Street Fighter 6 Trailer: Ryu’s got a dad-bod now! Most interesting, Capcom The franchise seems to be taking on the single player gamePlay seriously for once, adding a “running around a city doing stuff” story mode that literally no one has claimed. What was said, SF6 It looks big, colorful, and technically demanding, which assumes exactly what fans of the franchise were hoping for with its latest major payoff.

Rollerdrome

Quite frankly, we has never played a single Roll 7’s super-Slick Oli Oli Skateboarding games and I thought, “Oh my God, this would be better with some guns in it.” But, after that, we also did not see a trailer as striking as the PS5 exclusive Rollerdromewhich marries the appearance of the latest studio animation elementary world And marry her with some old-school death-like gameplay. The game’s success will come down to how they handle their hands, of course, but the trailer is a hell of a first impression.

Callisto Protocol

You can tell that this is a new sci-fi horror game from some previous games dead space devs because the main guy has a light bar on his back that shows you how badly the monsters are chewing on him.

but we’re kidding Callisto ProtocolWhich you are not ashamed to show dead space Influences – and why should it be? This franchise may have died a vile death, but its early installments are still unquestionable, and Callisto Protocol It seems to replicate the “horror hunt on a dead spaceship” technique very well.
