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 2Aeon Must DieGenshin Impact, and Anno Mutationem.

For those who missed the stream of Sony’s State of Play on August 6, you can watch the entire video in English up above.

Elsewhere in gaming, Nintendo’s profits saw a 400 percent increase since COVID-19.
