It is bundled with standalone game updates, along with a few new announcements. Here’s everything that was announced on the show.
Indie game update and reveal
The stream begins with a revealing trailer about Moss: Book 2 for PlayStation VR. A look at the multiplayer shooter Arcadegeddon followed, along with an announcement for its early access release. We also have an update on Midgard TribePost-launch plans will include a new rune system, Saga Quests, and exclusive items.
We have a new look at FIST. Hunter’s Arena will be coming to PS4 and PS5 for PlayStation Plus members next month from August 3 to September 6.
The developers at Superbrothers shared a look at its new game, Jett: The Far Shore, which appears to be an adventure centered on exploration, featuring space travel and walking.
Sega became known during this event as well with a new hack-and-slash game based on the popular anime and manga title Demon Slayer. The game launches on October 5 for PS4 and PS5. It also gives a fresh look at Judgment lost and its English dub.
An announcement that can deal a major blow to the viewer is the delay of SIFU. The heavily hyped game from Slocap has been pushed back from a 2021 release to 2022. It still doesn’t have a set date or even a month to launch deadline.
A new mechanic has been introduced to the game. After each defeat the player receives in the game, they will return at an increased age. It’s unclear if this is simply an aesthetic change or if it affects gameplay.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut confirmed to be released by Hideo Kojima at E3 2021. Today, we’ve got the release date and tons of new details about the game.
The game will hit shelves on September 24, 2021. The game features new story missions, battles, combat mechanics and some very unexpected add-ons that no one expected. PS5 players can upgrade their PS4 copy of the game to the Director’s Cut for $10.
The main highlight of this State of Play is Deathloopand it’s clearly looking to bring a new shooter experience from Bethesda. The player controls Colt, who is stranded on the island of Deathreef, where people go out to kill him. To leave the island and break the loop, Colt must kill eight targets known as visionaries before one day repeats.
With the game’s focus on death and repetitive actions, each loss gives you a new chance to learn about your goal and the world around you. This also opens the door to a lot of different possible ways to deal with enemies.
Players will be able to carry weapon abilities between rounds thanks to the Residium material. However, players have to be smart about what they want to keep as Residium is a rare resource. There’s also Reprise, which allows the player to die and rewind twice before the day’s loop restarts.
