From left to open the ball for the E3 season, the PlayStation opened yesterday, the night of Thursday June 2 to Friday June 3, a new edition of its State of Play. The manufacturer has already sold the pipe a bit upstream, with games from its partners as well as PSVR 2 projects. So what is he hiding behind these few words? Did we receive any surprises? Don’t move, it’s time for a big recap. Here is all the information you need to know.
Find above, in auto-play, the trailer announcing the remake of Resident Evil 4.
RESIDENT EVIL, PSVR: SUPERB INTRODUCTION
The least we can say is that the PlayStation didn’t come out to launch its State of Play. Quite simply, as an introduction, we found the first images of the Resident Evil 4 remake with a release date as a bonus: March 24, 2023. In any case the PS5, is the only platform mentioned today. What ends a lot of rumors. Yes, the famous Léon Kennedy will return to save Ashley. The two heroes have also been the subject of a massive face change from Capcom-and the same can be said of the visuals and atmosphere, here more sadly than ever, in the Resident Evil Village tradition. . The icing on the cake, this redesign is entitled to its virtual reality content for PSVR 2. Regarding this last point, no date has been advanced so far.
This time, (Resident Evil 4, editor’s note) has been developed to reach the pinnacle of its art for survival-horror in 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game. Our goal is to make the game familiar to fans of the series, while bringing a new twist to it. This is done by re-imagining the story while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls. – Capcom (PlayStation-Blog)
Until we talk about Resident Evil Village and virtual reality, yes (you saw it coming) the latest episode of the popular horror series is coming to PSVR 2. However, we don’t know when- a. After all, the headset itself doesn’t have a release date, even if we don’t see it until next year. However, you can include the more reasonable Ethan Winters in his latest adventures. The trailer is an opportunity to see a lot of fights, with the possibility of holding a gun in each hand. For example: “shooting your gun while holding a knife in the other hand, or holding a gun in one hand and a shotgun in the other” can be learned in PlayStation-Blog. Keep in mind that the presented game never betrays the visual ambition of the console version. A good news!
It’s also the same observation for Horizon Call of the Mountain, which is approached here thanks to a new trailer, as solid on a technical level. The chance to find out is that you play Ryas, a former Carja warrior who seeks to redeem himself by investigating a strange threat. “He was a master of rock climbing and archery” reads in PlayStation-Blog. Very practical because this VR opus seems like a lot bet on vertical paths, somewhat like the game The Climb. “Throughout your journey, you will be able to make tools and weapons (…) but you will not do it alone. Along the way, you’ll meet new and old Horizon heroes, including Aloy himself. It’s not too much to fight with the many machines waiting for you. Finally, Guerrilla took the opportunity to announce a free update for Horizon Forbidden West, available immediately. Including: New Game +, Super Hard mode, Boosted Performance mode.
Other VR game announcements:
- There is no Heaven in Man : Improved version for PSVR 2 (release date not yet available)

FINAL FANTASY, STREET FIGHTER: THIRD CHOICE
We continue with other announcements that have been hit hard. On the sidelines of the surprise PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (August 12, 2022) as well as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (fall 2022), we’re treated to two major pieces: Final Fantasy XVI-conclusion to show – and Street Fighter 6. The first didn’t give any news for two years while the second was already content with a simple announcement with a teaser. Yes, as many will say both licenses are pending. What else have we learned? As for Square Enix’s star RPG, it’s a release window first, summer 2023 on PS5. The trailer itself gives a good look at the fights, dynamics, and summoning of the “Primordials”. A PlayStation Blog post explains though how these great creatures relate to the two main characters. The opportunity to learn from the director of the game that the title is in the playable state “from start to finish”, even if there are many more things to refine.
With the power of the PlayStation 5 behind us, we aim to take you on a seamless, story-driven ride that will compete on the most exciting roller coaster. So go ahead, the wait is almost over – The Producer of FFXVI
But of these two, Street Fighter 6 was the most surprising. The famous fighting game will welcome an important new: open areas to explore, mao lang! This is at the heart of the “World Tour” mode, which will guide players to “leave their legacy” in this new opus, can we find out about PlayStation-Blog. In presentation, the whole thing looks like a kind of hub aimed at making the connection between the two fights. We’ll also see the “Battle Hub”, which, in addition to offering online matches, will take pride in the area’s “unique way” to invest and communicate. Of course, all the classic modes are available (training, local combat, Arcade mode, etc.). Overall, we can clearly see Capcom’s desire to modernize the franchise. Note in the pass that Street Fighter 6 runs on the RE Engine, the very good engine used by Resident Evil. That explains the look of the heroes!

STRAY, CALISTO PROTOCOL: NICE SURPRESES
You know what they say: the good news doesn’t come alone. After the big licenses, why not leave room for newcomers? Well, this State of Play is one time with news of a Calisto Protocol, the survival-horror from the creators of Dead Space. What was discovered in a first video of the game, with an atmosphere at least as scary as its very close cousin. The least we can say is that it remains. So we look forward to it very much tremble – again – in space, more precisely the dead moon of Jupiter. The hero, Jacob Lee, must put himself in an army of mutants to get out of an abandoned prison. For release: December 2, 2022, on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
A little sweetness in a world of brutes to pay for? We finally kept the date on Stray, the famous adventure game with robots and pôtichat, which was revealed almost two years ago. The adventure has begun July 19 on PS4 and PS5. And surprisingly, the game will join the catalog of the new PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium when it is released. So there’s no excuse not to take advantage of it next month. For the always plenty of colors, we can finally discuss the Season’s release date, which promises a gentle journey through towns, nature and colors (standalone 2022 on PS4 and PS5) but also the arrival of Tunic hits the PlayStation Sept. 27. So yes, there’s no God of War in the end, but it’s hard to be disappointed in this State of Play.
