Final Fantasy 16
It seems very possible that we may finally have another Final Fantasy game within this half of the decade. We are immediately shown the brand new and much faster direction the combat has taken, that looks like to seemingly blend magic and weapon combat much more naturally than its predecessors. If Final Fantasy 7 Remake was any indicator, that the really have implemented on this system over time and proved to be only getting better. The story seems to focus on a story of a bodyguard that spans over a substantial time period as we see the protagonist at different ages. It will be a console exclusive on the PS5 which may imply at some utilization of the special SSD on board.
Spider-Man Miles Morales Gameplay Demo
Spider-man Miles Morales makes a great statement opening up with straight gameplay. Easily the most jaw-dropping sequence I’ve seen this year, We get to see our favorite web-slinger duke it out on a bridge against some super baddies as Miles shows off his moves that differentiate himself from his mentor. We can see that Miles takes the gameplay of Spider-man PS4 and expands on it with greater mobility, electric attacks, and invisibility. The soundtrack also takes some great strides as bass beats pump up as the combat begins. We noticed that electricity and invisibility are on a resource bar and the combo system returns as Miles hops between enemy and enemy. We also see that the environment is as interactive as ever, but now it seems to be destructible with beautiful particle effects, no doubt the same level of detail we saw from Ratchet and Clank. The demo ends on a cliff hanger, and leaves me waiting for more.
Leak after leak, rumor after rumor, but its finally official, the elusive Wizarding World game has finally been revealed. Made by Avalanche Games, we can expect a huge playground of an open world for Hogwarts to fully be realized. There is a huge focus on personal choice and the world of Hogwarts rather than the tale of Harry Potter, allowing us to finally fulfill that decade old fantasy of being a student at Hogwarts and have your own adventure.
Call of Duty Cold War Gameplay Demo
We got another look at the new Call of Duty Cold War campaign mode, chock-full of new visual effects and exciting dynamic action set pieces. In a series that has recently proven themselves again in the most recent Modern Warfare, Cold War seems to shaping up as an exciting new entry. New features such as using body shields and pulling the pins on enemy grenades are welcome features to the classic formula. They also showed some drone derby driving as the every part of the world of reacting in a beautiful display of effects. They also announced that the multiplayer could be experienced as early as this Friday September 18th as part of an early access for those on PS4.
Resident Evil 8 Village New Trailer
A new plot trailer of Resident Evil 8: Village was shown, showcasing the the cult personalities of the village in a terrifying set of clips that give a sneak peak at the world and story, A couple more flashbacks this time around and the Merchant returns as the scope of the game leaves the more claustrophobic corridors of a home, and into the unknown foreign horror of a village.
Deathloop Gameplay Demo
My personal depiction of groundhog day gave us a new trailer, showing clips of its shooting, stealth, and super gameplay. Powers similar to Arkane’s flagship: Dishonored were featured as well as a peek at the world working under the time-loop. In almost a Hitman-esk or Majora’s Mask fashion, the world is constantly moving and you have 24 hours to kill your 8 targets. What they do is constant and they react to your actions, so you have to construct a plan and get more familiar each loop. We didn’t any more information of the female character this time around, but hopefully we get to see that soon.

DMC V is back and this time with a completely extra campaign featuring Virgil, new features such as what seems to be character switching and more enemies on screen.

Demon Souls Remastered Gameplay Demo
Bluepoint really showing off their skill here as the Demon Souls Remaster shows off lighting and animation that rivals real life, everything in this gameplay demo could work as sizzle, the new effects on the souls, the new animations on attacks and on the enemies, the physics on displayed, and the return of the ability to vault. There also seemed to be a minimal HUD available as well as the camera angle is considerably closer than the original giving the game a much more intimate and modern look at the game, as well as a better angle to look at the new graphics. Its the same game but with the freshest coat of paint.
