How To Watch PlayStation's State Of Play Presentation, And What We're Expecting
Sony's next Nintendo Direct - sorry, State of Play presentation - is tonight, and I think it's fair to say that this is set to be the biggest one yet. The 20-minute show kicks off at 9pm BST and will feature a number of upcoming PlayStation 4 and PSVR titles, with a particular focus on a little game called The Last Of Us Part 2.
Naughty Dog has already released a number of cryptic teasers for The Last Of Us Part 2 ahead of tonight's show, and we also know that there's a gameplay event taking place in LA this week during which media will be able to go hands-on with the hotly-anticipated sequel for the first time, so after over a year of silence, it's finally time to get excited. If we're very lucky, we might even get a release date for the damn thing. Here's hoping.
If you're itching to watch the show live - which you should be - you can check it out on Twitch or YouTube. I'll even embed the Twitch stream for you lovely folk below, because any news regarding The Last Of Us Part 2 is cause for celebration and I want to share it with as many people as possible.
While we know The Last Of Us Part 2 is set to feature in the 20-minute show, we don't yet know just how much of the game we'll see, or what the preview will entail. We also don't have any idea how many other titles will be shown during the stream. It could be that we open with a story trailer for The Last of Us Part 2 before moving on to other stuff, or it could be that the game takes up the majority of the stream with a deep dive on gameplay. Given the aforementioned media hands-on event though, the latter seems unlikely. Personally, I'd expect a two to three minute trailer tonight, tops.
Beyond The Last of Us Part 2, nothing else has been explicitly confirmed to feature in tonight's State of Play. In terms of first-party stuff, I think it's a safe bet that we'll get one final trailer for the Medievil remaster ahead of its October launch, and there's a chance we could get another look at Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, but that was a big focus during the Tokyo Game Show, so it's a slim chance.
Third-party wise, we know that Sony and Activision have a deal over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, so we might get an update on that. It's also been speculated that the long-rumoured (and increasingly likely-looking) sequel to Batman: Arkham Origins will be unveiled during tonight's stream. This is pure speculation though - we'll have to wait until 9pm tonight to find out for sure, but the promise of new details on The Last of Us Part 2 is good enough for me.
