On September 24th, Sony hosted a PlayStation State of Play conference. The conference included announcements regarding some of the biggest upcoming games from the company including:
- The Last of Us: Part II: Probably the biggest news of the event, Sony announced that next installment in Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us series is coming in February 2020. It will be a long wait but the dark, depressing but compelling trailer makes it seem like it will be worth it.
- Death Stranding limited edition PS4 Pro bundle: As announced earlier, Death Stranding will be released on November 8th this year. To accompany the much-awaited game, Sony has announced that a limited edition PS4 Pro bundle will release on the same day. The console itself is white and is covered in black handprints. The controller is modeled after a BB pod.
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Infinity Ward and Activision have been quiet about what players will get into in the upcoming campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Sony released a new trailer for the game in the conference hoping it will clear things up.
- Wattam: Wattam will be the new game from the creator of Katamari Damacy, Keita Takahashi. It looks like a colorful, jovial experience like his previous work. It’s not clear what you’ll be doing in the game, but the gameplay looks relaxing.
- Humanity: Sony announced Humanity, a game coming from Enhance, the studio led by Tetsuya Mizuguchi. The meditative gameplay from his previous works, like Rez and Tetris Effect, seems to have made its way into this new title.
- Civilization VI: While Civilization VI released on PC in 2016 and the Nintendo Switch in 2018, the game will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One on November 22nd. Sony also released a trailer for the game.
