Resident Evil 4, Lost, Final Fantasy XVI

It's like it's 2005 all over again

finally we can conclude, after a few quiet months, that the summer video game hype season has well and truly begun, as Sony unleashed its huge State Of Play press conference today, just a week before Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest, which we can safely assume that will bury us all under an avalanche of game trailers very soon.

However, the PlayStation company had a decent opportunity to kick off the impromptu burial today, releasing a bunch of exclusives and big titles due out in a few weeks or next year, depending on where they are in the hype cycle. . (We also got a few more tidbits of info on PSVR 2, which is getting a ton of demonic resident content every time it actually comes out; What eternally hopeful adopters of the original hardware, we can’t help but hope for a successful launch for the new one).

Anyway: here are the biggest trailers from today’s State Of Play:


Resident Evil 4

Normally, it would be a bit of an indictment of a trailer list for its most unquestionably exciting entry to be a remake of a 17-year-old game. But the new Resident Evil 4 is a bit different, both because Capcom’s previous rThe emakes of the first entries in the franchise have been fantastic overall, and because Resident Evil 4 it’s okay… Resident Evil 4. Seeing the classic game running on the company’s latest engine is certainly exciting; We can’t wait to see what iconic sequences like the attack on the village or the defense of the hut look and feel like when this new version of an old favorite arrives next year.

Final Fantasy XVI

When we first saw the main series number 16 Final Fantasy game in 2020, stood out for how many game of Thrones Apparently, the DNA had snuck into the series’ standard mix, with all the gritty violence, faded colors, and political maneuvering. All of that is still on display in the game’s new “Dominance” trailer, but there’s plenty of visual appeal too, especially in the form of a focus on the series’ beloved summons, now acting almost like kaiju as the war unfolds and disputes. under his feet. Throw in a combat system that feels like an evolution of the action work the series has been doing on Final Fantasy 7 Remake Y stranger from paradiseand it’s an intriguing package currently set for June 2023 arrival.

Lost

“Adorable Cat Explores the World of Robots” was always going to be an easy sell for a lot of people; there is a reason Lost done our list of most anticipated games for 2022. Now we finally get a little better look at what playing BlueTwelve Studio’s futuristic exploration game will entail: lots of wandering, some stealth, and some really cute cat noises. It is not yet clear how much Lost it’ll really add up once we get our hands on it, but the trailer certainly promises something offbeat.

street fighter 6

Let’s start with the most important point of the new street fighter 6 trailer: Ryu has a dad body now! More interesting still, the Capcom franchise seems to be taking its single player gameplay it seriously for once, adding a “running around a city doing stuff” story mode that literally no one has been clamoring for. Having said that, SF6 it looks big, colorful, and technically demanding, which is presumably exactly what fans of the franchise have been hoping for with its latest big return.

Skating

Honestly, wWe’ve never been playing one of Roll 7’s super-slick games. OlliOlli skate games and thought, “God, this would be better with some guns.” But, of course, we hadn’t seen a trailer as striking as the PS5 exclusive either. Skatingthat marries the faux-animation look of recent studio OlliOlli World and combines it with old-school deathmatch gameplay. The success of the game will come down to how it handles in the hands, of course, but the trailer makes for an amazing first impression.

The Callisto Protocol

It can be said that this is a new sci-fi horror game from some ex Dead space devs because the main guy has a light bar on his back that shows how badly the monsters have been eating him.

but we joke The Callisto Protocolwho has no qualms about showing his Dead space influences, and why should it be? That franchise might have met an ignoble death, but its early installments are still flawless, and The Callisto Protocol seems to be replicating that “chased by horrors on a dead spaceship” vibe extremely well.
