Sony State of Play event scheduled for September just got over and PlayStation users are in for some interesting new games this time around. The annual gaming event that happened last night showed off an array of new gaming titles that will be coming to PS4 and PS5 in the coming months. The event also gave a peek of digital collectibles that can be earned with PlayStation Stars, the gaming firm's loyalty program.
Here is a list of all the big announcements made during Sony State of Play September:
God of War Ragnarok
Sony debuted a new God of War Ragnarok trailer that gives a glimpse of the game's storyline and a few of its action sequences. In the trailer, Santa Monica Studio also showed a few new mystical realms where the gameplay takes place. The gaming company also revealed a Ragnarok-themed DualSense controller. The controller and the game will be available on November 9th.
The fighting game Tekken is also getting a fresh update. Sony showed off the first trailer for Tekken 8 which is currently in development. The trailer was actually taken directly from a certain part in the current work-in-progress Tekken 8’s story mode, played on PlayStation 5, according to a PlayStation blog from Harada, Chief Producer of the Tekken Project. "It is not a pre-rendered movie made for the trailer but rather real-time rendered footage, running at 60 frames per second, similar to how you would experience the game in versus battle modes," he wrote. Tekken 8 is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X / S, and PC via Steam. Tekken 8 release date is yet to be announced.
Like a Dragon: Ishin!
From the creators of the famous Yakuza series, Like a Dragon: Ishin! is a samurai-themed game.
