What to expect at PS5 State of Play
Sony is finally giving us a first glimpse of the sequel to the highly-acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn during the PlayStation 5 Showcase
During the 20-minute presentation, we’ll be getting 14 minutes of brand-new in-game action starring protagonist Aloy, along with some insight from the game’s developers, Guerrilla Games.
This will be the first piece of gameplay we’ve seen since Horizon Forbidden West was announced. The PS5 game is still expected to release sometime this year, although no official date has been stated. Here’s hoping we’ll get a specific date.
Since the showcase is dedicated to the PS5 exclusive, we’re not expecting any other teasers, whether it be from God of War 5 Ragnarök or Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade. But, we’ll never rule out any surprises.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the next big title coming our way. While it was set to be a part of the PS5’s launch line-up, it was pushed back to June 11. That’s still plenty of time to make your way through every previous Ratchet & Clank game, which we’ve ranked from worst to best.
