The State of Play on September 14, 2022 has just ended: Sony was called to answer Nintendo and show why gamers will have to buy a PlayStation 5 this winter.
Despite the somewhat uncomfortable schedule for us, but much less so for the US and Japan, the games shown kept us awake, with a grand finale that surprised no one, but thrilled virtually everyone.
No more chatter, let’s recap all games and trailers for PS4 and PlayStation 5 from the State of Play on September 14, 2022.
The State of Play of September 14, 2022
The State of Play opens with a trailer for Tekken 8, Bandai Namco’s eagerly awaited fighting game. After a very quick introduction, we immediately move on to the violent action: the graphics look remarkable and the classic gameplay seems to benefit from the new cinematic cut of the direction.
We talk about Star Wars with the trailer for Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition for PlayStation VR2, the interesting adventure set in the George Lucas universe. Also in the VR field, we saw the trailer for Demeo, a card game mixed with virtual reality RPG. Both are already available for Oculus VR, but will debut on PSVR2.
SEGA got on track with the announcement of Like a Dragon: Ishin, the Yakuza set in the time of the samurai. The development team announced that they have rebuilt the game from scratch, Kiwami-style. It’s a long step from Feudal Japan to Wizarding World, but the trailer for the PlayStation-exclusive Hogwarts Legacy quest brought us back to the world’s most famous wizarding school for a moment.
The atmosphere is changed again with an Ironwood horror. It is a game in which you are always aboard a car, a very original concept that the Pacific Drive trailer highlights properly. It will arrive on PC and PS5.
Then some news was announced for PlayStation Stars, the loyalty program for PlayStation customers. The program is about to arrive in Asia and later in Europe and America.
After formal things, we move on to the final half of the State of Play with the announcement and the trailer of SynDuality, a third-person action set in a distant world, with a very oriental style. It will arrive in 2023.
We then move on to two exclusive PS5 consoles, which will also arrive on PC. The first is the new game from Shift Up, Stellar Blade, the former Project Eve. It is a highly sophisticated design game, set in a dystopian future in which the planet’s energy has been consumed by mechanized beasts. All to be the background for a third-person action, a little Nier and a little Bayonetta.
We then move on to Team Ninja which returns with a game with a medieval setting, obviously Japanese. The trailer for Rise of the Ronin will arrive in 2024 on an exclusive PS5 console. It is a rather interesting action RPG.
Then comes the time of God of War Ragnarok, or rather the custom DualSense, blue and white. After the controller it’s time for the real God of War Ragnarok trailer, a few seconds of gameplay that are enough to raise the hype for the game to the stars. We begin to review the difficult contribution between Kratos and Atreus, some gigantic enemy and a remarkable graphic sector. The variety of action and settings seems remarkable and the one in Santa Monica Studio seems to be ready to conquer everyone again. Recall that it will be released on November 9, 2022.
With God of War Ragnarok the State of Play closes, what do you think?
