Playstation 5 and PlayStation VR 2 titles will be showcased in the upcoming State of Play.
PS5 and PSVR 2 will be the focus of next week’s PlayStation State of Play. This time around, there won’t be a single game featured on the broadcast.
A 30 minute State of Play will air on Thursday, June 2nd, according to the PlayStation Blog(opens in new tab) (give or take). “Exciting reveals from our third-party partners, as well as a sneak peak at numerous games in development for PlayStation VR2” have already been revealed by Sony.
Unfortunately, there is no mention of PSVR 2’s hardware specifications, which suggests that we won’t be seeing a release date or pricing information until the PSVR 2 is released. In any case, we’re expecting a lot from the State of Play display this year, especially in light of the recent announcements of games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Hogwarts Legacy.
Sony’s teaser for State of Play next week suggests it will be a must-see show. What to expect from this year’s PlayStation State of Play, as well as how to watch it live, is outlined in the following section.
How to watch PlayStation State of Play June 2022
There will be a PlayStation State of Play event on Wednesday, June 2, from 6pm Eastern to 11pm British Summer Time (BST). In addition to Twitch and YouTube, the event will be webcast live.
Before the State of Play, there doesn’t appear to be a pre-show, but you can still join the broadcast in order to not miss a second. Once the story is published, we’ll embed a link to it here.
There will be no one PS5 game included in the 30-minute-long programme, but rather a number of titles from third-party developers. It will also provide gamers a “teaser” of what’s to come with the PSVR 2 headset.
What to expect to see at PlayStation State of Play June 2022
Even though no specific games are mentioned, the post on the PlayStation Blog introducing this State of Play offers us a solid idea of what to expect.
If Sony’s virtual reality headset launches with more than 20 games, we should expect a “sneak look” of some of those games to be shown off during the live stream. Horizon: Call of the Mountain or Resident Evil Village VR mode could be revealed during the stream.
It also mentions “some interesting reveals from our third-party partners” in the blog post. In light of Hogwarts Legacy’s prominence in last year’s State of Play, there’s a decent probability it will make an appearance. These include Final Fantasy XVI, Forspoken, Gotham City Knights, and Lord of the Rings: Gollum as strong possibilities.
It’s odd that the blog post makes no mention of any of Sony’s own first-party titles. These findings may indicate that prospective PS5 exclusives, such as Spider-Man 2 and God of War Ragnarok, are unlikely to be released. In the future, we expect these games to be given their own dedicated State of Play streaming.
