Sony PS4 State Of Play News Roundup: Everything Announced

Sony's stream is now over, and despite loading just over 10 minutes, this State of Play featured a fair number of announcements. The event started out with a look at the upcoming Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World before launching into new and previously announced games. An asymmetrical online action game based on the Predator is coming from the developers of Friday the 13th: The Game, while we got a trailer and release date for MediEvil. Most notable was the new trailer for Final Fantasy VII's PS4 remake. There was some speculation that the game – which we've heard little from – would show up, and it capped off the presentation when we got to see some cutscenes and letter gameplay clips. We didn't get a release date or anything of the sort, but Sony did promise to be shared next month, presumably during Square Enix's E3 press conference. Check out a roundup of news (and a replay of the event) below. Capcom subsequently a stream for Monster Hunter World where we learned even more about the DLC expansion, including that with Iceborne and the base game is coming. ] The original story follows.

Sony’s stream is now over, and despite loading just over 10 minutes, this State of Play featured a fair number of announcements. The event started out with a look at the upcoming Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World before launching into new and previously announced games. An asymmetrical online action game based on the Predator is coming from the developers of Friday the 13th: The Game, while we got a trailer and release date for MediEvil.

Most notable was the new trailer for Final Fantasy VII’s PS4 remake. There was some speculation that the game – which we’ve heard little from – would show up, and it capped off the presentation when we got to see some cutscenes and letter gameplay clips. We didn’t get a release date or anything of the sort, but Sony did promise to be shared next month, presumably during Square Enix’s E3 press conference.

The original story follows.

Sony’s next State of Play livestream event is happening today, with a few different announcements of interest to PS4 owners planned. The brief presentation will only last about 10 minutes, and that time will give more details on the PS4 remake of MediEvil and an unannounced new game. The livestream event takes place later today, Thursday, May 9, at 3 PM PT; You can see the start time in various time zones below. You can also watch the event through the live stream embedded on or on the PlayStation YouTube channel.

In giving word about this presentation, Sony set expectations for what’s coming during it. Specifically, it made it clear one thing that won’t be shown. Don’t worry about the new PlayStation – presumably to be named the PlayStation 5 – because Sony has made it clear what this event is about. Fortunately, we already have a surprising amount of information about the system, given that its release is probably quite far off. Sony has shared specs and some of its vision for the PS5, which no one was expecting.

This is the second-ever state of play, and Sony’s approach to these announcement streams has been very similar to Nintendo Direct presentations. The first State of Play in March was a good deal longer, including announcements or new glimpses of eight games.

These individual State of Play streams may be where we hear most of Sony’s announcements this year, as the company has dropped out of E3. SIE Worldwide Studios head Shawn Layden that the company feels the event is not necessarily up to the changing needs of the industry.

Though it won’t be at E3, though, it has already started sharing its plans for the next generation, making it the first company to the starting gate. Those plans include backwards compatibility with PS4 games and a re-commitment to support PSVR. Read up on everything we know about PS5.
