ps state of play

PlayStation recently held their 2023 state of play event, featuring several exciting announcements. As expected, Sony prioritized the upcoming PlayStation VR2, but there are a number of non-VR third-party games that could also be showcased.

Dino-teen drama Goodbye Volcano High made an appearance during the stream, unveiling its rhythm gameplay mechanics and coming-of-age story as well as receiving a release date. Additionally, Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League got an extended look during which some new gameplay details were revealed.

Baldur’s Gate III: Enhanced Edition

Baldur’s Gate is one of the world’s best-known classic role-playing games. Its world is filled with adventure and intrigue, featuring various characters you can interact with – from a mad wizard to an enthusiastic troll lover.

The story starts with an unknown iron crisis that brings Baldur’s Gate into war. As your character investigates, the tone shifts to more serious as you must deal with bandits, cultists and political intrigue. It will be a long and tumultuous journey that ultimately culminates in the death of its main antagonist: dwarven wizard Jon Irenicus.

Though the game is nearly two decades old, it still offers plenty to new players who seek a classic RPG that can challenge them. It boasts an expansive world to discover with plenty of sidequests and quests that will test you in every way possible.

Graphically, the game remains impressive and runs smoothly on modern hardware thanks to improvements made when it was re-released a few years ago. It also looks more realistic in terms of animation, no longer prone to stuttering during fights.

This Enhanced Edition includes both the original game and Tales of the Sword Coast expansion, plus some previously unseen content. It also introduces three new potential party members: Rasaad yn Bashir, Neera the wild mage and Dorn Il-Khan the evil blackguard – each with their own specializations that add value to the gameplay. These character types make great additions for fans of RPGs!

In conclusion, this port should please any fan of the original game. It adds new content and tweaks to the BG2 engine, which should make for a more engaging experience for those who have played it before with mods.

This Enhanced Edition of Diablo III is a fine port, but it does have some shortcomings. The new cutscenes are cartoonish and sometimes hard to follow what they signify; furthermore, certain areas and quests were excluded from the original version.

Horizon Call of Mountain

Horizon Call of the Mountain is the first PlayStation VR 2 spin-off game to be announced. Developed by Firesprite and Guerrilla Games, this title was unveiled during Sony’s State of Play presentation in June.

The story follows former Carja soldier Ryas, as he searches for redemption while traversing cold landscapes, decaying post-apocalyptic ruins, and towering robotic monsters. The gameplay is intensely physical as you cling to mountain sides for much of the game while scaling heights in order to reach victory.

Climb with pickaxes, jump off ledges and zip line across rocky landscapes for an immersive experience that showcases PS VR 2’s potential without feeling like a tame tech demo.

Another key aspect of this game is its crafting system. You’ll find various tools and resources in the world that you can use to craft new weapons and equipment – like arrowheads, fletches, or Blaze canisters which attach to your bow for explosive arrows. This addition adds an enjoyable layer of interactivity that may be too much for some players; nonetheless it makes playing much more enjoyable for everyone else.

Though its combat is rather repetitive and lacks variety, Horizon Call of the Mountain is an impressive showcase for PlayStation VR 2. Boasting stunning visuals and immersive platforming gameplay, Horizon Call of the Mountain puts Sony’s new headset to the test like never before.

Explore a stunning world that’s richly detailed and visually stunning. The combination of lush forests, frigid icescapes, and rusted post-apocalyptic ruined areas brings the world to life.

There’s also an intriguing plotline which puts you in the role of Ryas, an offshoot rebel from the sun-worshiping Carja tribe. He has been imprisoned for some time due to crimes committed against them and is sent on a mission by someone who wishes to help him earn a pardon.

Stellar Blade

Stellar Blade is an action-packed RPG developed by Korean studio Shift Up that will release on PlayStation 5 in 2023.

Sony Interactive Entertainment will release this game for PS5 only, set in the wake of an alien invasion. Players take control of Eve, a powerful mercenary who must save Earth from an evil creature known as NA:tives.

In Stellar Blade, players will explore an expansive open world. To take on tough enemies, they’ll parry and dodge their attacks while weaving in combo skills for quick dispatching. Furthermore, players have access to Beta and Burst abilities which have been said to deal heavy damage when used correctly.

One of the key selling points for this title is its fast and furious combat. According to its developer, it will feature quick time events during action scenes as well as innovative platforming and traversal mechanics that set it apart from other titles in its genre.

As you progress through the game, you’ll unlock new weapons that grant extra strength to combat challenging monsters.

Your sword can also be wielded to slice through walls, scale them and slide tactically while swinging on ropes. All of these actions are great for traversing the world’s landscape and will come in particularly handy while searching for treasure.

The developers wanted to create a visually stunning game that also looked like something you might find in a recent Final Fantasy title. Therefore, they aim for more photorealistic visuals compared to Bayonetta or Nier Automata but still looks different nonetheless.

The game’s post-apocalyptic setting will keep players engaged, but its gameplay will keep them coming back for more. It promises to be an enjoyable experience, with evident effort put into making this the best game possible – we can’t wait until release day!

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Rocksteady Studios is back with Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, their new superhero game set in DC Comics universe. Nearly eight years after Arkham Knight ended their Batman trilogy and just months after sister studio Warner Bros. Montreal released Gotham Knight, fans are eager for another DC superhero title that offers fun gameplay without getting bogged down in filler material. With Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League on deck, fans should have plenty of opportunities to see which game delivers on this promise!

The game puts players in the shoes of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark – four DC Super-Villains who have been reprogrammed by Brainiac to be government-mandated saviors. As they traverse Metropolis – an expansive open world city – with Brainiac as well as world’s greatest DC superheroes: Justice League. To triumph over Brainiac and become world-renowned heroes again, The Squad must find a way to defeat Brainiac and battle through Metropolis together!

In this game, you play as Harley Quinn (voiced by Tara Strong), a boisterous heavy-hitter with impressive acrobatics and weapons skillset. Additionally, you’ll play as Deadshot – an agile sniper who can throw various knives including razor edges and explosives.

Gunn has pulled off an amazing feat with this sequel; he’s managed to bring all his characters together into an ensemble that not only works well together but is believable and sells the story itself. Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman return, while new additions include Peter Capaldi’s lightbulb-decked Thinker; Idris Elba’s Bloodsport; John Cena’s Peacemaker; Sylvester Stallone’s King Shark; David Dastmalchian’s Polka-Dot Man – each selling their character without compromise or compromise.

Five years after Batman: Arkham Knight, Brainiac has taken control of Earth’s greatest heroes and must be stopped. Fortunately, they possess a formidable arsenal of lethal weapons at their disposal; however, they must also remain aware of detonation devices implanted in their heads which could explode at any given moment.

As the game is set for release in May 2023, we’re eagerly awaiting further information about what this DC video game has in store. We’ll update this page as soon as we learn more, so be sure to keep checking in for all the latest information.
