Sony will once again be hosting a PlayStation Experience this December and, according to a recent announcement, they're bringing a bunch of industry giants along for the ride.
PlayStation experience is basically a mini-E3 for fans of Sony's gaming platforms. Along with some announcements, new trailers and the like, folks who are able to attend the event from Dec. 3-4 in Anaheim, California, will also have the chance to play a bunch of games from an impressive list of publishers. Sony announced that more than 60 publishers will be attending the two-day party, so here's a look at what you can expect:
Adult Swim Games
Alonso Martin Company
Bit Kid, Inc.
Blue Mammoth Games
Desert Owl Games
Exploding Tuba, LLC
Happy Badger Studio
High Horse Entertainment
Limited Run Games
Matt Makes Games
NextGen Pants, Inc
Reverb Triple XP
SIE Japan Studios
SIE San Diego Studios
Spaces of Play
Team 17 Digital Ltd
Thunder Lotus Games
Tribute Games Inc
Vblank Entertainment Inc.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
We the Force
Zeboyd Games, LLC
According to the full announcement, all of these publishers will be showing off a wide array of games, including titles for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. SIEA Social Media Director Sid Shuman said the current list is "near-final," so there might even be a few surprises before the big event kicks off in just a few weeks.
More details on the panel lineup are expected between now and early December, as well as what games, exactly, visitors to the event will be able to get their hands on. But since they aren't spilling all of the beans just yet, we've got ourselves a couple of educated guesses.
For starters, Capcom's big upcoming title is Resident Evil VII and, yep, we fully expect it to be on display via PSVR at the upcoming show. There have been several demos available up until now, though, so we're interested in seeing if there will be yet another new demo for folks to try out at the show.
EA and Activision both had major first-person shooters launch, so we wouldn't be surprised if their main reason for attending will be to give players a gander at what some of the first DLC for games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 will be.
Guerrilla will be in attendance, and we're going to go out on a limb and guess that they'll be showing off a little something from their highly anticipated PS4 game, Horizon: Zero Dawn. We figure San Diego Studio is in a similar boat. It's been a while since we've heard anything fresh about the new God of War, so fingers crossed Kratos will be in attendance.
Naughty Dog isn't a surprise, especially since they've still got a major piece of story-driven DLC for Uncharted 4 to announce at some point. PlayStation Experience seems like the perfect place to do exactly that.
Seeing GungHo on the list, we figure that means that Let it Die will be another big draw at the upcoming show, giving more folks a chance to see what this free-to-play action game from the mind behind Deadly Premonition is all about.
But again, we're only seeing the top of the iceberg here, folks. We'd be interested in hearing who you're most excited to hear from at PlayStation Experience, as well as what you're hoping they bring along to show off.
