The PlayStation Showcase finally revealed the price of the next-gen PlayStation 5 and peripherals, revealed the launch line up, and also unveiled new titles arriving for PlayStation 5. The PlayStation 5 will be launching on November 12, in U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, a worldwide will take place on November 19.
Most of today’s presentation was to share the spotlight to the creations of third-party developers that will enhance the PlayStation experience from day one. These are the games coming to PlayStation 5.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
We here at Capcom are incredibly excited to be able to kick off the next generation by launching DMC5SE digitally, day and date with the launch of PS5.
DMC5SE was conceived with two main goals in mind – to take the award-winning gameplay of DMC5 and enhance it to provide a truly next-gen experience, and to add key content that fans have been asking for.
The exclusive footage, comprised of both battles and cutscenes running in real-time, represents but a fraction of what our team has accomplished since the start of development on this, an all-new Final Fantasy game.
Five Nights at Freddy’s Security Breach
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach brings its Indie Dev spirit and combines it with cutting edge gaming technology. We are taking the franchise to the next level on the PlayStation 5. The PlayStation 5’s next-gen technology enhances the fear and tension beyond what’s been possible before. Real-time ray tracing graphics ups the visual fidelity and brings the Animatronics to life like never before. Feel the fear surround you with PlayStation 5’s immersive 3D Audio. Utilizing the lightning fast new SSD technology, the pace of terror is never interrupted.
Finally, Harry Potter fans will be able to play visit Hogwarts in a good AAA RPG experience, the 4K reveal trailer showcases the fantasy world that is imagined from the books of J.K. Rowling.
The Portkey Games label gave us a unique opportunity to return to Hogwarts during a different era. We are always asking ourselves how we can draw from the rich library of characters, creatures, and themes – and imagine how those details would influence the school more than a century before Harry Potter’s arrival. Who was the headmaster? What challenges did students face? What influenced their society before Tom Riddle, before Newt Scamander? I like to say that what we are giving fans is something familiar
Santa Monica’s short trailer did not reveal much of the next God of War title, just the Jörmungandr logo, something that announces the arrival of Ragnarok.
Sony also confirmed some of the launch titles for the PlayStation 5, the company also confirmed the price rage of 49.99 USD to 69.99 USD for PlayStation Studios games. Extended gameplay trailers for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, and Demon’s Souls were unveiled on PS5 hardware.
One of the biggest surprises of the event was the PlayStation Plus Collection, PlayStation 5 owners with PS Plus “will be able to download and play play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation, like Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Persona 5, and many more”. The PS Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PS Plus members receive for a single subscription price.
