It's like it's 2005 again

We can finally conclude, after a few quiet months, that the summer video game season has well and truly begun, as Sony kicked off its big State Of Play press conference today – just a week before Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest, which we can assume will will bury them all under an avalanche of game trailers very soon.

The PlayStation company took a good chance starting the impromptu burial today, rolling out a bunch of exclusives and big titles that will be out either in a few weeks or next year, depending on where they are. in the hype cycle. . (We also got some additional info on the PSVR 2, which is getting a bunch of resident Evil content whenever it actually comes out; as forever hopeful adopters original hardware, we can’t help but hope for a successful launch for the new one.)

Anyway: here are today’s biggest State Of Play trailers:

Resident Evil 4

Normally, it would be a bit of an indictment of a trailer list for their most exciting entry to be a remake of a 17-year-old game. But the new Resident Evil 4 is a bit different, both because Capcom’s previous remakes of the early franchise entries have all been generally fantastic, and because Resident Evil 4 is good… Resident Evil 4. Seeing the classic game running in the company’s latest engine is undeniably thrilling; we can’t wait to see what iconic sequences like attacking the village or defending the cabin will look like when this new version of an old favorite arrives next year.

Final Fantasy XVI

When we took a look at the 16th main series Final Fantasy game in 2020, he was notable for How many game of thrones DNA had seemingly crept into the series’ standard mix, with all the gritty violence, washed-out colors, and political maneuvering. All of that is still on display in the game’s new “Dominance” trailer, but there’s plenty of eye candy too, especially in the form of a focus on the series’ beloved Summons, now acting almost like kaiju as war and feuds play out. under their feet. Add a combat system that feels like an evolution of the action-heavy work the series has done in Final Fantasy 7 Remake and stranger from paradiseand it’s an intriguing package currently slated for June Arrival 2023.


“Adorable Cat Explores the World of Robots” was always going to be an easy sell for a lot of people; there is a reason Wander made our list of the most anticipated games for 2022. Now we finally have a better look at what BlueTwelve Studio’s futuristic exploration game will entail: lots of wandering, a bit of stealth, and some very cute cat noises. We still don’t know how much Wander will actually add up once we get it in our hands, but the trailer certainly promises something unconventional.

Street Fighter 6

Let’s start with the most important point of the story Street Fighter 6 trailer: Ryu has daddy-bod now! More interestingly, the Capcom the franchise seems to be taking its solo gameplay it seriously for once, adding a “run around town doing stuff” story mode that literally no one is asking for. That being said, SF6 looks big, colorful, and technically demanding, which is probably exactly what fans of the franchise were hoping for with its latest big comeback.


Frankly, wWe’ve never played one of Roll 7’s super slicks OlliOlli skating games and I thought, “God, that would be better with guns in it.” But, then, we also hadn’t seen a trailer as eye-catching as the PS5 exclusive. rollerdromewhich marries the singular animation look of recent studio OlliOlli World and marries it with oldschool deathmatch type gameplay. The game’s success will depend on how it performs in the hands, of course, but the trailer is one hell of a first impression.

The Callisto Protocol

You can tell it’s a new sci-fi horror game of old dead space devs because the main guy has a light bar on his back that shows you how much mobs have chewed on him.

But we’re joking The Callisto Protocolwho does not hesitate to show his dead space influences – and why should this be so? This franchise may have died an ignoble death, but its early installments are still spotless, and The Callisto Protocol seems to capture that “hunted by horrors on a dead spaceship” vibe extremely well.
