Sony’s debut Nintendo Direct-like broadcast went live last night, bringing us a look at some of the content heading to PlayStation 4 and PS VR in the coming weeks and months.
There was plenty more PS VR news, including confirmation of upcoming virtual reality support for No Man’s Sky and a 28 May release date for London Studios’ Blood & Truth. We also got brief looks at first-person adventure title Falcon Age (9 April), tabletop-inspired fantasy RPG Table of Tales (16 April) and Rick & Morty creator Justin Roiland’s bizarre Trover Saves the Universe (31 May).
Robot Entertainment’s multiplayer dungeon crawler, ReadySet Heroes, was announced during the show as a timed exclusive for PS4. In the game, two players must quickly make their way through levels whilst collecting loot and weaponry, ready to face off against an opposing team of two (who’ve ran an identical version of the dungeon themselves) in a final arena showdown.
It’s been purposefully designed as a “short session game” for local or online multiplayer, with no PlayStation Plus required to engage with the latter. ReadySet Heroes is out sometime later this year.
Moody science-fiction thriller Observation is out later this spring (21 May) and sees players stepping into the role of a self-aware AI known as SAM on a stricken space station. Using SAM’s connections and various systems, players must help the last remaining crew member uncover the mysterious downfall of the station.
You can catch up with the entirety of the inaugural State of Play below.
