Sony’s State Of Play Presentation 25th February 2021
Sony hosted another State of Play digital presentation on 25th February to give information on up and coming titles for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Here’s how the event went.
Crash Bandicoot 4 About Time
Crash Bandicoot 4 About Time kicked off the show with updates compared to the PS4 version. The game includes native 4K/60FPS upgrades and heptic feedback and you can transfer your save file over from the previous game. Free upgrade to PS5 version if you have the PS4 game.
Returnal was shown off ahead of it’s 30th April release date. The interesting mechanic of this third person shooter is that every time you die, the world and its environments will change & enemies will regenerate in different places and even different amounts. Collecting upgrades is essential but will constantly change your play style.
Knockout City was announced last week, but we have a PlayStation Beta next week as well as the announcement of 1v1 dodgeball action.
Sifu is a new kung-fu brawler coming to the PS5. Developed by Sloclap, the independent studio behind Absolver. Play as a young Kung-Fu student on his path of revenge throughout the city. We’re keeping our eye on this one.
Solar Ash shows off gameplay for the first time. It is shaping up to be a fluid third person platformer. Combat has been crafted so it doesn’t hinder your flow and it looks to be sliky smooth from the trailer below. Coming to PS4 & PS5 later in the year. Players take on the role of a Voidrunner named Rei who traverses through the biomes in hopes of saving her home world from the Ultravoid, a massive black hole that swallows entire worlds.
Five Nights At Freddy’s Security Breach
Five Nights At Freddy’s Security Breach announced for both the PS4 & PS5. The colourful survival horror comes out at some point in 2021.
Oddworld Soulstorm is out on 6th April and utilises the heptic feedback in the Dualsense controller so you can feel Abe’s heartbeat when he gets into sticky situations. If you buy it on PS4, and are a PS Plus subscriber, you get the PS5 version for free.
Kena Bridge of Spirits
Kena Bridge of Spirits looks lovely. Is now coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on 24th August.
Deathloop has a shiny new trailer and a James Bond 007 esq theme song. No confirmed release date.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade comes to PS5. Free upgrade for PS4 players as well as a chapter focusing on Yuffie. There are the usual visual and frame rate upgrades, a new Normal (Classic) difficulty and a photo mode. It’s coming out 10th June 2021.
