For those of you that may have missed it, PlayStation showed its final State of Play broadcast of 2019 early Tuesday morning to show off more of what’s in store for PlayStation fans. The broadcast was the typical 20 minutes in length and was full of gameplay trailers and announcements. We picked out a few games from the show that we feel like stood out the most.
Untitled Goose Game
One of the biggest memes in the gaming community this year is Untitled Goose Game. A game that’s simply about a goose causing mischief. People all over social media have been joking that this is the best game of 2019 but there is actually a lot of charm to this game. Watching the trailer to kick off the show I have to admit I was laughing pretty hard at the idea of this game. Running around and just being a cynical pest of a goose sounds like a that would be really fun to play on a couch with a couple friends. This game is actually the earliest arrival of the group, you can play Untitled Goose Game on PS4 starting December 17th!
Our second pick from the state of play is Proletariat’s new spin on the battle royale genre Spellbreak. This is a game that has been in early access on PC for some time now but it will finally be debuting on a console next Spring on PS4. What piques our interest in Spellbreak is that it has a completely unique combat system that we have yet to see in battle royale games and that is spell-based combat. Spells come in different elements and can be strengthened throughout a match. For those of you that enjoy battle royale games will definitely want to give this game a try when the beta starts in the Spring.
Okay this may be a personal pick and the other guys may not be as interested in Dreams as me but this was one of the best games to be shown off in the show. The big announcement for Dreams is that the game will be going full release February 14th, 2020 exclusively on the PS4. The game going full release means that we are more than likely going to see the campaigns that we were assured will be apart of Dreams. I am very interested to see what sorts of experiences will be in store for players when actual professionals get their hands on the creation tools that Dreams offer its users.
Ghost of Tsushima
The last of our favorites from Tuesday’s State of Play was the next game from developers Sucker Punch, Ghost of Tsushima. The short teaser they gave us rounded out the presentation and is having gamers wait until tonight’s Game Awards show to know more information. There was one thing they did say that was of note to me which is that gamers will be able to dive into this experience soon. It is something of note because we have yet to receive even a release window for the game, but there were several rumors in the past stating that we would see Ghost of Tsushima in February of 2020 so it could be that we see that release date drop tonight at The Game Awards. It would also make sense because Naughty Dog just recently delayed the Last of Us 2 until May, leaving the door open for another exclusive to drop in February.
