Today’s relatively short—even by livestreamed press conference standards—State of Play event was not the most eventful update we’ve ever seen, but here’s a roundup of everything showed up.
Deathverse: Let It Die
Upcoming arena battler Deathverse: Let It Die was announced today, and looks alright! The trailer showed off some melee combat and some amount of personality. Per the trailer it’ll launch in spring of 2022.
We Are OFK
This is an episodic narrative adventure game about a real indie band in LA, which is...interesting? Looks charming for sure.
There’s a Bugsnax update titled The Isle of BIGsnax coming in 2022! It’s adding base-building and big “prehistoric” bugsnax, which seems neat.
Five Nights At Freddies: Security Breach
Wow, turns out these games look way better when not made by a weird Christian dude. Sony also announced the game’s December 16th release date.
Very pretty Zelda-esque top down action RPG, Death’s Door is coming out on PS4 and PS5! This is great for people who love this game, and I am personally excited to play it. Plus, you get a free game for preordering.
Do you like riding little karts? Maybe you’ll be into this! Regardless of your feelings, it’s entering beta soon.
The King of Fighters XV
The 2D-playing, 3D-looking King of Fighters XV looks gorgeous and is going into open beta on PS4 and PS5 on November 19th.
First Class Trouble
This is a multiplayer deduction game that looks kind of like group Hitman. Someone tries to make one of these every few years, and, aside from Among Us, they’ve never really taken off. Maybe this’ll be the one! It’ll be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Star Ocean The Divine Force
This is a relatively pretty JRPG, with a long franchise pedigree. It, in all honesty, looks pretty bad in this trailer! But maybe it’s just an iffy first look. It’s due sometime in 2022.
Little Devil Inside
This game, if nothing else, has a really cool aesthetic. You’re a tilt-shifted bounty hunter! That’s neat. It’s very surprising to see something like this as the big closer for a small press conference.
