A closer look at all of the best games on the horizon
Here we go. E3 is my favourite time of the year. I’m not afraid to admit it. There is something kind of magical about the excitement of it all, isn’t there?
It’s that one time of year where we get to see the entire industry come together and revel in the greatness of videogames. This year was particularly sweet because we got to see Sony once again assert its dominance in the market.
The publisher wasn’t interested in wasting time – its showcase was all killer, no filler. In fact, so is its line-up of PS4 games for 2018 and beyond. From the first reveal of The Last Of Us:
Part II, Death Stranding, Resident Evil 2 Remake and Ghost Of Tsushima gameplay to a fresh look at the likes of Spider-man and Kingdom Hearts III, the next 12 months of gaming on PS4 looks pretty damned impressive. We were also treated to the announcement of Nioh 2 and Remedy Entertainment’s Control, both of which look absolutely fantastic. There is something for everyone, and that is pretty awesome to see.
You can read about all of these new games in this issue of Play. In fact, you can read about a lot of games in this issue of Play. We only wanted to put the very best of the best in front of your eyes, and the smallest we could wrangle that number down to was 58. What that means is that over the next 34 pages you are going to find previews and deep-dive investigations into the biggest games on the near horizon. I'm talking Cyberpunk 2077 – yes, we have seen it in action and no, we are still not over it. I’m talking The Division 2, Anthem, Rage 2, Just Cause 4 and a whole lot more. E3 is a time of celebration for the games industry, so the team here thought there was no better way to honour that than a huge preview special.
I hope that you walk away from reading this issue as excited as we were putting it together. Excited about the position the PS4 has found itself in, excited about the state of the industry and – most importantly – excited about all of the excellent games that are on the way.
