Press day at the annual E3 video game conference is behind us and the show itself has officially begun. Day -1 was action packed, to say the least, and there were several big events we covered live. Among them were the two biggest ones of the year: Microsoft and Sony.
Microsoft’s event still has gamers buzzing, and the star of the show was definitely a mind-blowing preview of Minecraft for the HoloLens. Could Sony possibly top that awesome demo? No… but Sony company had plenty of big announcements of its own in store for us during last night’s press conference — here are the five most important ones.
The Last Guardian
The. Last. Guardian. Is. Finally. Here.
Well, it’s not actually here, per se, but after years of rumors the game finally became a reality on stage during Sony’s presentation. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it won’t hit the PlayStation 4 until sometime next year.
Here’s the official trailer:
New Hitman game
That’s right, Sony showed off yet another upcoming Hitman game during last night’s show. This one is just called “Hitman,” and no release date was announced.
Here’s the trailer:
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Killzone studio Guerrilla Games will unite to bring us a fantastic looking new game called Horizon: Zero Dawn. There are really only two words you need to know: Robot. Dinosaurs.
The game’s first trailer follows below.
Destiny is one of the biggest releases in recent history, and The Taken King expansion promises to be the biggest addition to the game since its release. It will be available in September and will include a new map, a new mission and new gear.
Sony’s streaming TV service, PlayStation Vue, will soon expand into San Francisco and Los Angeles, bringing the total to five. More importantly, however, Sony announced that it will allow customers to subscribe to a la carte channels in addition to traditional bundles.
“We will begin offering a la carte channels nationwide, and will be the first paid TV service to allow users to subscribe to individual channels without the purchase of a multi-channel bundle,” the company said.
The service will have a base price of $49.99 for the core bundled stations, and a la carte channel options will apparently be very limited at launch.
