Ghost of Tsushima, RE:3 & More: 10 Things We Learned at Today’s State of Play

From a Ghost of Tsushima teaser to Resident Evil 3 news, here's 10 things we learned from today's PlayStation State of Play.

  • Ghost of Tsushima headlined today’s PlayStation State of Play presentation.
  • The Resident Evil 3 remake was also confirmed, but that wasn’t all that PS4 owners had to cheer about.
  • Here are ten things we learned from PlayStation’s final State of Play in 2019.

While today’s State of Play wasn’t what you’d call a vintage edition, it packed a reasonable selection of PlayStation nuggets to keep us satiated until The Game Awards on Thursday.

From a tantalizingly short peek at Ghost of Tsushima to the expected reveal of the Resident Evil 3 remake, here’s a round-up of the ten things we learned during Sony’s last State of Play for 2019.

1. Untitled Goose Game Heading to PlayStation 4

Although not news, we’ll never say no to a bit of House House’s Untitled Goose Game. It’s heading to PlayStation 4 on Dec. 17, and there’s a fresh trailer for the occasion.

2. Spellbreak – The Latest Battle Royale Contender

I’m not sure we need another battle royale, but that’s what we’re getting in 2020 with Spellbreak. The game offers a new twist on the tried and tested formula with spells, magic, RPG elements, and a lush medieval world taking center stage. A beta starts this Spring.

3. Dreams Gets a New Trailer

After what feels like an eternity, Media Molecules creative game-making sandbox Dreams arrives this Feb. 14. We didn’t learn anything new, but MM wove together a new trailer to showcase just how promising the game looks.

4. Superliminal

After a run as an Epic Store exclusive, bizarre perspective jolting puzzler Superliminal is heading to PlayStation 4. It’s one for fans of The Stanley Parable and one of the more peculiar and intriguing games of the year.

5. VR Delight Paper Beast Gets a Release Window

Stunning VR title Paper Beast was handed a Q1 2020 release window in today’s State of Play. Atmospheric, enchanting, and ideally suited to the immersion of VR, there’s more than a hint of titles like Journey and Flower in this one.

6. Kingdom Hearts III DLC Release Date

The latest entry in the long-running Square Enix and Disney mashup, Kingdom Hearts III, sees a new DLC land on Jan. 23 next year. Dubbed Re Mind, we’ve known it was on the way for a while now, but the news and fresh trailer should please fans.

7. Predator: Hunting Grounds Release Date

Honestly, it’s a little hard to get excited about this one, but there’s a new Predator: Hunting Grounds trailer and an Apr. 24 release date.

8. Babylon’s Fall

We’ve heard next to nothing about Square Enix’s upcoming action title Babylon’s Fall since E3 2018, so this is a welcome surprise. Fast-paced combat-focused gameplay, aerial acrobatics, towering bosses, and a Gothic aesthetic are a potent mix that looks promising. More news slated for this summer, presumably at E3.

9. Resident Evil 3 Remake Confirmed

Resident Evil online multiplayer spin-off, Project Resistance, has morphed into a mode for the rumored Resident Evil 3 remake, which Capcom finally confirmed courtesy of a gripping trailer. The remake arrives on Apr. 3, 2020.

10. Half a Ghost of Tsushima Trailer

You always save the best for last, right? Well, that’s precisely what PlayStation did today with a new trailer for Sucker Punch’s highly anticipated Ghost of Tsushima.

Truly living up to the teaser name, it’s only the first half of a trailer. There’s a masked figure, some stunning autumnal hues, the promise of a fight, and it all ends before it even gets started. The second half will drop at The Game Awards on Thursday.
