PLAYSTATION fans hoping to learn more about two of Sony’s brand new games were left disappointed after the game company’s Electronic Entertainment presentation on Monday evening.
Millions had tuned in to hear whether titles Detroit: Become Human and Days Gone launch dates had been confirmed during the annual gaming conference..
Its brand new original franchise, Days Gone, was revealed during last year’s E3.
Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John, a drifter and bounty hunter who would rather risk the dangers of the broken road than live in one of the “safe” wilderness encampments.
It’s set two years after a global pandemic has killed almost everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers – (and we might call zombies) mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving.
Gamers seemed pretty chuffed to see its progress, but were hoping for a bit more details on when it would arrive on their consoles.
Sony’s second E3 2016 offering, Detroit: Become Human, also failed to get a release date this year.
The original title is set in a future city where humans and androids maintain a fragile co-existence and the decisions that you make build the story around you.
In a teaser shown on Monday evening, gamers watched a group of freed Androids break into several “Cyberlife” stores to create a robotic clone uprising.
But we might have to wait another year to hear any more.
E3 takes place in LA and features just about every major player and indie darling in the gaming industry.
Sony is competing with Microsoft, who unveiled their major console update – The Xbox One X.
In the first major conference of the expo, Microsoft unveiled the “most powerful games console” of all time called the Xbox One X.
It’s an upgraded version of their current console, the Xbox One, and boasts powerful specs that enable it to the run games in 4K ultra-HD.
The Xbox One X will be released on November 7 in the UK and will cost £449 ($499 in the US). Parents be warned that is likely to top wish-lists everywhere.
Alongside the announcement of the Xbox One X, Microsoft also revealed Assassins Creed Origins, Forza 7, Crackdown 3 and Bioware’s Anthem. Expect to hear more about these incredible games from their individual announcements in the coming days.
The gaming giant Bethesda has unveiled a virtual reality version of the Satanic shoot ’em up Doom at the gaming conference E3, along with a new VR update of the post-apocalyptic role-playing game Fallout 4.
Doom VFR will let players strap on an HTC Vive or PSVR headset before “bathing in virtual carnage”.
