After just 2 months of the PS5 design reveal, PlayStation streams their latest State of Play with news about PS4/PS5 games. Here are highlights of what was shared via State of Play.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time | Oct. 2nd 2020 – Crash is back in this direct sequel. You’ll be able to play with a slew of new characters as well as a new key feature called Inverted Mode; this mode is a supped up mirror mode with the ability to change the whole aesthetic of the game entirely. Should help with replay value for the completionist.
Hitman 3 VR Mode | Jan. 2021 – Agent 47 is not playable through the entire campaign in VR mode. We see him approaching a target in a luxurious bathroom before performing is signature rope kill.
Braid Anniversary Edition | 2021 – Longtime fans should find delight in this hand-repainted definitive edition with in-depth commentary on its whole development cycle.

Genshin Impact | Autumn 2020 – an open-world RPG setting you out to on an adventure!
AEON Must Die | 2021 – This action adventure beat’em up is shaping to be one artistic looking fun!

Control AWE | Aug. 25th, 2020 – We may not have an Alan Wake 2, but with this expansion, it looks like we will be diving deep into his world – It’s a very cool concept and I can’t wait to play it.

Godfall | Holiday 2020 – 3-player co-op looter slasher. Fight through tough enemies and earn loot in the process. Gearbox is promising deep dive into their RPG elements in a later date.
This concludes State of Play – an underwhelming stream that showcased games which, to me, weren’t exciting. From what we gathered though, this is one of many State of Plays in the coming months, so stay tuned.
