In a considerably stunning transfer, Sony has announced that it will likely be internet hosting a PlayStation Media Showcase throughout this yr’s Paris Video games Week.
The showcase shall be going down on October 30th at 9am PT/12pm ET/4pm BT. The news is sudden provided that the corporate determined to not host a showcase on the event final yr, having held one in 2015 in lieu of a exhibiting at Gamescom in Germany. We had assumed Sony was settling for 2 major showcases a yr, one midway by the calendar at E3 in June and one simply earlier than the vacations at its personal PlayStation Expertise event within the US. Guess not.
Sony’s European showcases are inclined to concentrate on games developed across the area. Meaning titles like Detroid: Past Human from France-based Quantic Dream and the Horizon: Zero Daybreak DLC from Netherlands-based Guerrilla Video games are seemingly going to be there.
However what about VR? After such a strong showing for the corporate’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) at E3, we’re hopeful Sony will observe up with one other massive hit at this showcase. For one factor, we’re excited to see extra of Media Molecule’s Dream, a sport that’s been teased for VR help many occasions over. It’s imply to be a form of sport creator software, nearly as if Oculus Medium or Tilt Brush had their very own sport mechanics baked-in. We’re very hopeful to see extra of that on the showcase, then.
It’s additionally been over two years now since Sony launched its UK-based North West Studio, which is devoted to creating PSVR games. We additionally know the London Studio crew is making one other PSVR sport, so these are doable candidates together with some other third-party showings.
We’re getting slightly excited already, so we’ll simply have to carry on for a number of extra months.
