PlayStation PGW 2017 – The 5 Biggest New Game Announcements
Sony had promised a big showcase for Paris Games Week 2017, and I think they delivered in spades. With huge game reveals and new looks at hotly-anticipated titles, PlayStation fans have a lot to get excited about.
Read on for a list of the five biggest reveals featured during the Paris Games Week Sony conference.
5 – Guacamelee! 2
Seven years after defeating Carlos Calaca, Juan Aguacate is forced to don his luchador mask again to face a new threat — this time to the very fabric of space and time. Punch your way through a whole new Metroid-vania style world and try to save the Mexiverse!
4 – Spelunky 2
Yes, that’s right! I’m happy to announce that Spelunky 2 is in development and coming to PS4! This was a hard secret to keep, as we’ve received quite a few requests for a Spelunky sequel over the years. A sequel has been on my mind, too, but I knew I had to wait for the right time.
I’m sure you have a lot of questions about Spelunky 2 and we have a lot more to share with you in the months to come about what’s new, what’s returning, and when you’ll be able to play the game. For now, we just wanted to let you know that yes, it exists!
3 – The Hong Kong Massacre
The Hong Kong Massacre is a fast paced top-down shooter set in the city of Hong Kong. Inspired by Hong Kong action movies, the game let’s the player engage in hard-boiled gunfights around the city in levels ranging from restaurants to building rooftops.
2 – Concrete Genie
Concrete Genie is a game about a bullied teenager named Ash, who escapes his troubles by painting spectacular living landscapes and mischievous creatures throughout his abandoned hometown of Denska. As he masters this magical paint, he discovers it can purify Denska’s polluted walls. Can Ash overcome the bullies and paint his hometown back to life?
1 – Ghost of Tsushima
The year is 1274. Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan–until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But, honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting–the way of the Ghost–as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan.
