PlayStation’s State of Play 3.25.19 Review

Sony decided to take a crack at the Nintendo Direct idea and produce their own video series showcasing news surrounding PlayStation games. The livestream was just shy of 20 minutes, but it had a decent offering for PlayStation fans. Let’s not waste any time and jump into it.

Iron Man VR – Releasing 2019

Marvel is not done being friendly with Sony just yet! Sony, Marvel, and developer Camouflaj are working together to make a first-person Iron Man game exclusively for PlayStation VR. The game will release in 2019.

Blood and Truth Release Date Announce – May 28th, 2019

SIE London Studio’s Blood and Truth, a game inspired by the London Heist demo from PlayStation VR Worlds, has received a new trailer showcasing the story and a release date. This game is also exclusive to PSVR.

Observation – Releasing May 21st, 2019

Devolver Digital revealed a new sci-fi thriller game with heavy inspirations from Alien. Observation will release on PlayStation 4 on May 21st, 2019.

Five Nights At Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted Revealed

You thought this was dead, too, huh? So did I. However, this infamous horror series is making its debut on VR platforms this Spring. It follows an original story but brings back familiar scares the franchise is best known for.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled Update

The classic kart racer is making its way to PS4 this June, but it has some surprises up its sleeve… such as PS1 models of the characters. Enjoy the trailer!

ReadySet Heroes Reveal

Robot Entertainment has a quirky indie arcade title for PS4 this year, come look at what it offers.

Concrete Genie Story Trailer

The much-ignored Sony exclusive got some love from State of Play. The trailer dives into the story and world. More gameplay footage was showcased as well. You can also play the game in VR if you so wish. Unfortunately, PixelOpus had to push the game back to an autumn release instead of the promised spring release. However, that delay was probably much needed.

No Man’s Sky Comes to VR in the Beyond update

The once-hated but now appreciated No Man’s Sky gets a free content update with VR compatibility. Now you can explore the horizons in the next dimension.

Days Gone Story Trailer

The highly-anticipated survival horror PS4 exclusive receives another trailer highlighting the story. Drama and tension is emphasized throughout. Days Gone releases on April 26th, 2019.

PSVR Sizzle Reel

Sony likes it, so have a gander.

Mortal Kombat 11 Campaign Reveal

Sony closes their fast-paced presentation with Mortal Kombat 11 details, this time focusing on the single-player campaign, which hosts a time-travel storyline.

That’s all that Sony presented for their first State of Play. There will be more episodes in the future so if you were disappointed in this episode, at least you have more to look forward to. Personally, this was a treat for PSVR owners but lacked the punch for sole PS4 owners. Days Gone and Concrete Genie both looked very cool to me.

What are your thoughts? Please let us know in the comments below and look forward to the next Direct- I mean, State of Play.
