Sony’s 2016 E3 show was a barely interrupted succession of game trailers. It started with an odd choral arrangement that evolved into an orchestral performance conducted by Bear McCreary. From there, the audience was pushed straight into a demo of God of War, featuring Kratos on a heartwarming jog with his son. Bonding time! Days Gone, a post-apocalyptic zombie game featuring bikers gave the viewers a thrill with a wave of undead chasing a man through a barn. Annual E3 favorite The Last Guardian was displayed, this time with an October 25th release date. Horizon Zero Dawn was back with more future primitive dino-mech hunting. Resident Evil Biohazard looked appropriately dark and jump-scary. Detroit Become Human looks like it takes the multiple-choice gameplay of Until Dawn or Heavy Rain and mixes it with robots.
A selection of PlayStation VR games were shown, including a Batman Arkham VR game from Rocksteady and Battlefront X-Wing VR Mission from EA. The PlayStation VR hardware will go on sale on October 13th for $399.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s space fighter, hull breaching, spaceship explosion gameplay was shown. See if you can guess how long it took the audience to realize it was a Call of Duty game. A Crash Bandicoot collection is being remastered for the PlayStation 4, along with Crash coming to Skylanders Imaginators.
Finally, Hideo Kojima was brought out to great fanfare to show off Norman Reedus’ butt in Death Stranding. It’s no Silent Hills, but naked Norman Reedus is a win.
