It was a giant evening for PlayStation final evening, huh? Metallic Gear Stable, extra Metallic Gear Stable, cyberpunk-at-home sequel Ghostrunner 2, a launch date for Murderer’s Creed Mirage, Alan Wake 2 displaying a descent into insanity, and a large, surprising have a look at the thrilling Dragon’s Dogma 2.
The key is out of the field.
Given this was a large Sony showcase (and the primary one since 2021, no much less), you would be forgiven for considering all of those video games have been PlayStation exclusives – or, at the very least, would come to the PS5 with particular options or one thing. Alas, that is not the case.
As identified in a cheeky tweet that flew out of the Xbox socials the second the showcase was over, 12 of the video games included within the showcase can be coming to Xbox platforms, in addition to PlayStation or PC.
These video games are:
Dragon’s Dogma 2, no launch date. Cease looking your pawns and get within the battle.
Marathon, no launch date. Bungie lastly emerges from the Future salt mines.
Metallic Gear Stable Delta: Snake Eater, no launch date. Boss is again, and he is introduced a 4K texture pack with him.
Immortals of Aveum, due in July. Alex thinks it is excellent, and appears liek a mixture of CoD, Doom, and Physician Unusual.
Murderer’s Creed Mirage, due October 12. If you wish to be taught extra concerning the recreation’s gorgeous soundtrack, I wrote one thing up in my column over at The Guardian concerning the care and love that went into making it.
Alan Wake 2, due October 17. A sequel to probably the greatest horror video games of all time.
Teardown, coming in 2023. Voxel-based destruction mayhem.
The Talos Precept 2, coming in 2023. The long-awaited sequel to 2014’s philosophical puzzler.
The Plucky Squire, coming 2023. A vibrant platformer that can have you ever hopping from 3D platforming to top-down dungeon crawling.
Ghostrunner 2, coming in 2023. See the hyperlink above for more information.
Neva, aiming for a 2024 launch. From the workforce that introduced you Gris comes a story of a younger girl and her lifelong bond with a powerful wolf cub as they embark on an journey by means of a quickly dying world. Put together for tears.
Cat Quest: Pirates of the Purribean, 2024. Play as a swashbuckling privateer on this 2.5D open-world motion RPG set in a fantastical, pirate-themed world.
It isn’t a dash.
Maybe probably the most intersting cross-platform title is Marathon – the brand new PvP extraction shooter coming from Bungie. Again in early 2022, we realized that Sony was to amass Bungie for a large $3.6 billion. Now, the Future maker is a part of the PlayStation Studios household… and is launching its subsequent recreation on Xbox. It is a curious factor, and one I am desperate to be taught extra about because the mud settles.
There are nonetheless some ‘pure’ PlayStation exclusives within the combine, after all: Closing Fantasy 16 and Spider-Man 2 are probably the most notable (although, you by no means know, it is potential the blockbuster Sq. Enix RPG might land on Xbox consoles sooner or later. By no means say by no means, and all that).
