Yesterday, Sony streamed its latest State of Play on YouTube, shifting the focus away from its own first-party news and instead giving fans fresh updates on third-party and indie games for both the PlayStation 4 and 5.
The almost 40-minute video began with updates from Activision regarding the highly-anticipated Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, which is due to arrive on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One some time in September. The new gameplay clips offered were then followed by an announcement from Sony that the entire Hitman trilogy — including the upcoming Hitman III — will receive PSVR support in January, 2021. Later on in the broadcast, Godfall also received an in-depth look, with nine minutes of new gameplay revealed to fans, offering a closer look at the in-game world of Aperion, the five different weapon classes, as well as the complete move sets of Longswords and Dual Blades and more.
Aside from these three AAA titles, a lot of other games had their trailers released during the stream. Those excited about the PlayStation 5 will be interested in both The Pathless and Bugsnax, while the Pokémon-inspired TemTem and Hood: Outlaws and Legends both make their debuts. Other PlayStation 4 games featured include Spelunky 2, Aeon Must Die, Genshin Impact, and Anno Mutationem.
