Ghost of Tsushima and Dreams to be a Focus at PSX
We'll finally get a good look at Sony's samurai story
Over at the PlayStation blog, Sony detailed some of their plans for their next big outing. The PlayStation Experience 2017 is set to take place on December 9th and 10th in Anaheim, California. And now we know a bit more of Sony has in store for us.
During the show, Sony will be featuring a few different panels which will offer a direct look at some of PlayStation’s upcoming games from the developers themselves. Sony boasts that we “can count on some of Worldwide Studios’ biggest and brightest making an appearance.” Two of those specifically mentioned are Sucker Punch Productions and Media Molecule.
Media Molecule, and more specifically their upcoming project Dreams, was suspiciously absent from Sony’s Paris Games Week slate. Many fans cried foul, thinking the worst regarding the fate of Dreams. The game’s developers quickly squashed all rumors though.
Media Molecule promised that Dreams was making great progress and that we would be seeing it for ourselves soon at PSX. And with Sony’s announcement today, those promises were confirmed, and all appears right in the world of Dreams.
Sucker Punch Productions was the other team directly cited to have a panel. The studio showcased their upcoming samurai game Ghosts of Tsushima for the first time during Paris Games Week. While the footage shown was simply a CG trailer with fantastic VO, the results were a resounding success.
Ghosts of Tsushima was one of the most talked about games coming out of Paris Games Week. We know little to nothing in regards to what the game actually is, however, everyone seems pretty excited to learn more. We’ll get that chance in December.
Sony also confirmed that there will be an opening presentation for those with an Early Bird ticket to PSX. There, PlayStation Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden will have an update for attendees ahead of the show proper. The opening presentation will feature “some special guests, along with a few surprises and game updates.” So we’ll see if there ends up being some relevant news on Friday evening as well.
