Biggest Announcements From Sony’s PlayStation Showcase 2021

Sony is the latest video game company to put on a virtual event. The PlayStation Showcase 2021 didn’t disappoint fans as it was a chance to show off some of the biggest games coming to the PS5, and while there were some notable absences. Sony still isn’t talking much about the next generation of PlayStation VR. There were glimpses of highly-anticipated titles like God of War: Ragnarok, Spider-Man 2, and a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. There were even a few surprises, like a new Wolverine game. Here are the biggest announcements from Sony’s PlayStation Showcase 2021:

  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Nearly 20 years after the original release, Aspyr is remastering Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The acclaimed RPG, developed by BioWare’s KOTOR, will finally be available on PlayStation. In addition to PlayStation 5, the KOTOR remake is also coming to Windows PC.

  • Wolverine

This announcement came out of the blue. Fresh off the success of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sony’s Insomniac Games studio is working on an adventure dedicated to Wolverine. The deadliest X-Man got a minute-long tease, showing him nursing some brown liquor inside a bar.

  • Spider-Man 2

People guessed that Spider-man would be coming back for a sequel after 2018’s Spider-Man made many Game of the Year lists. Spider-Man 2 brings Peter Parker and Miles Morales together, and sinister slobbering symbiote Venom drops in as the villain. Fans will have to wait a little while on this, however; Insomniac gave it a 2023 launch window.

  • God of War Ragnarok

Sony followed up its tease last year with a longer look at the sequel to 2018’s God of War. The trailer reorients us to the events of that game, where Kratos and Atreus want no more smoke from the Aesir following their confrontation with Baldur. Thor is voiced by Ryan Hurst, who played Opie from Sons of Anarchy.

  • GTA 5 and GTA Online for new consoles

The expanded and enhanced version of 2013’s Grand Theft Auto 5, for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X is delayed until March 2022. Originally, Rockstar Games had hoped to deliver both by November. The stand-alone version of Grand Theft Auto Online will be free on PlayStation 5 for the first three months after its launch.

  • Uncharted remasters for PlayStation 5 and PC

The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection comprises remastered versions of 2016’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and its 2017 stand-alone expansion, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Sony is eyeing an early 2022 launch window for this package.

  • Gran Turismo 7

PlayStation’s car-culture flagship launches March 4, 2022, following development delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans saw a trailer illustrating the game’s features, which include a large world to explore, a wide-ranging fleet of cars to unlock and customize, and a garage to park and show them off. Gran Turismo 7 is also launching on PlayStation 4.
