After a delay Sony have announced some of the new games coming our way for the next generation of PlayStation. Here’s a round up of some of the games that we’re excited for here at UnCapt.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Lloyd: “Well, its a bit obvious we’re going to be excited for this one! I’m a massive Marvel nerd, so this game is right up my alley. I had a brief play of the original, and I was more than impressed with the vast majority of it. It looks stunning, and if the first Spiderman game is anything fo go off, this will only be better. In this game, you, of course, take control of Miles Morales from the Ultimate Spider-Man comics, who has become a fan favourite since his debut back in 2011.
Dale: “YES! YES! YES! YES! I’m a Marvel fan, not as big as Lloyd but I know some stuff. The Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is in my top ten films of all time and introduced me to Myles Morales (I don’t really read the comics, don’t tell Lloyd…). I Loved Myles in the movie, and I’m sure I will love him in the game. It looks stunning and honestly, one of the major selling points of the PS5 for me.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
Lloyd: “Ratchet and Clank is a game so close to my heart. One of my childhood favourites and I can feel this is going to be a driving factor to me grabbing a PS5. It’s crazy how it now looks like a stunning animated film where the duo faces the collapse of reality. There is an exciting dynamic of shifting between different dimensions that I am keen to experience. I love that the world looks to be full of life and it looks to add more charm to a childhood classic.
Dale: “Who? Meh. I never really was into Ratchet and Clank as a kid, doubt I will be now to be honest although the different dimensions look interesting.
Lloyd: “This looks like is could be an intriguing IP and one with potential for a strong narrative. It seems that revaluations and hope are key to the story here, as the protagonist, Abe, must go on an adventure to go and save his people. It seems that this going to have a very emotional story but also some dark humour to lighten the mood up.”
Dale: “I absolutely LOVE the Oddworld games. I’ve only played one or two but I have such fond memories of watching my dad play them on our old PS1 when I was a kid. From what I remember the other games have a great and clever narrative and some humour where you least expect it. A stunning looking game, that holds true to what I remember as a kid. It still holds that “Horror” Factor and it looks like it is going to be packed with symbolism, I love it!”
Little Devil Inside
Lloyd: “At first I thought this was a cartoon rip-off of Monster Hunter but as i watched the trailer more and more, it took shape into what looks like could some awesome gameplay. You have to fight monster using a range of weapons much like Monster Hunter but the story goes much deeper than that. The story seems to focus on the contrast between you, the monster slayer and your master or employers lifestyle, so will be interesting to see the dynamic between those two. “
Dale: “This looks interesting. As Lloyd said about the Monster Hunter vibes… Well, I mean you are hunting Monsters, I like it. It looks to take Monsters a bit more varied than MH, Aknowledging the creepy and obsurd. The employee/employer dynamic is interesting, not like employers to enjoy their lives peacefully whilst employees get the brunt of it aye?”
Lloyd: “In Deathloop, you take control of an assassin who is caught in a constant timeloop and must you must use this your advantage. The gameplay takes clear influence from Dishonoured, while the style reminds us of a little of We Happy Few and it looks like an awesome combination. The crime thriller style just get me really excited.”
Dale: “The premise is pretty interesting. The timeloop does look interesting and the world itself gets me excited to play. I’m loving reading Dystopian books at the moment, so I would love to play more dystopian games. Loving the style and It clearly has a Dishonored vibe, so I’m game.”
Horizon Zero Dawn 2: Forbidden West
Lloyd: “Of course, would it be a PS5 reveal if we didn’t mention this? Horizon Zero Dawn 2 is coming, although i’m yet to play the first yet due to the release date being pushed back on PC. This series just looks phenomenal in everything from the action to the setting. You’ll continue to play Aloy as she continues her journey west, meeting more creatures and enemies to fight your way through.”
Dale: “I was expecting a From Software announcement. Although I’ve never actually played Demon’s souls, I know there is a huge following around it. I must say though, the world looks absolutely crazy! This would be a definate pick up for me. What confuses me though, is that in a post they state that ‘Players can choose between two graphics modes while playing: one focused on fidelity and one focused on frame rate’.
Why? Surely the console is powerful enough to do both? No?”
We’ve finally got a look at how the console looked
Lloyd: “It looks like a wi-fi router, so I’m expecting the best wi-fi speed on a gaming console ever. It certainly looks different, not sure on how I feel about it yet, quite clearly a modern design. I think it’s going to be something that grows on me in time”
Dale: “You know, the more I look at it. The more i dislike it. The fact that it appears you can’t place it horizontally is a big nope from me. But we will see, I’m sure the exclusives with outway the… strange design.”
That’s it from us here at UnCapt, what did you think? Were you impressed? And will you be picking up the PS5 on release?
