PlayStation has a Surprisingly Short E3 Press Conference

Aside from the Monster Hunter: World announcement, reboots of God of War and Shadow of the Colossus, DLC for Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and a whole bunch of PlayStation VR games, PlayStation didn’t have much more to announce. PlayStation’s E3 press conference happened just a day after the Xbox E3 press conference, which introduced the Xbox One X.

Monster Hunter: World will be the first international Monster Hunter game to be returning to the PlayStation brand since Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (there is Monster Hunter Frontier Z which is only available in Japan but includes the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360). It is also the first Monster Hunter game to appear on the Xbox One.

The world announcement trailer available on the Monster Hunter official YouTube channel shows off the brand new HD graphics that weren’t available in other Monster Hunter games. In the trailer, the audience sees our hunter go up against massive beasts in beautiful environments in typical Monster Hunter fashion. Players can play with up to four friends in co-op mode, to make beast slaying a little bit easier.

The game will be released sometime in early 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will be available for PC at a later date.

Although the reboot of God of War was previously announced, the audience was able to see more of the story and gameplay in its newest trailer for E3 2017. This new reboot changes the story of the game, focusing on the relationship of Kratos and his son. In a news update posted June of last year, the creative director of Santa Monica Studio Cory Barlog revealed why the studio decided to reboot the game this way.

“It is hard for human beings to truly change, but one thing that can really motivate us is the thought of being responsible for a life, and especially the life of our child,” said Barlog. “The weight of that responsibility drives the instinct to protect, to want to prevent the mistakes of our past being delivered upon them. There is no end to the lengths we will go, no adversity we will not overcome, to be better… for them.”

It will be released in early 2018 for PlayStation 4. More information can be found on the God of War official website.

The second reboot shown at PlayStation’s E3 press conference was Shadow of the Colossus. It seems that it will be an HD remake of the game with the same mission and similar gameplay as the 2005 release, as seen in the Shadow of the Colossus E3 trailer available on the PlayStation official YouTube channel.

Not much more is known about the game at this time aside that it will be released sometime in 2018.

Sony seems to be bringing their focus to PlayStation VR, with remakes of older games like FINAL FANTASY XV: Monster of the DeepThe Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR and Superhot VR. The new Final Fantasy VR game is a fishing game, where the player controls Noctis and, well, goes fishing. New PlayStation VR titles include MossThe InpatientStar Child and Bravo Team.

There were no new IPs announced at the PlayStation E3 press conference. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be getting another campaign named Uncharted: Lost LegacyHorizon Zero Dawn will be getting DLC named The Frozen Wilds, gameplay for Call of Duty: WWIIDays GoneDestiny 2, and Marvel’s Spider-Man was shown, and trailers for previously announced games Detroit: Become Human and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was shown.

Does Microsoft have a chance to “win” the crowd at this years E3?
