Yesterday was apparently a big day for Sony and Playstation to announce a bunch of exciting new upcoming video games — to come out a couple years from now. So we’ve all got to survive this pandemic to play the likes of Spider-Man 2, Wolverine, God of War: Ragnarok and more! I’m going to do my best.
First up is Spider-Man 2, the sequel to that great Spider-Man game a couple years ago from Insomniac. The Miles Morales game was just as good, in my opinion, but a full-on sequel should be a lot of fun.
We’ve got Kraven and Venom as villains, and those guys are always a hoot. This game should be another instant success.
Next up, Insomniac is making a Wolverine video game! That one is a real surprise.
Wolverine games have a good track record. Say what you will about the movie, but the X-Men Origins: Wolverine game was a blast way back in the day. The fighting, the healing, the gameplay, it was all top notch. And with the Spider-Man games, it’s clear that Insomniac knows how to make a character move around a world. So Wolverine is in good hands.
God of War: Ragnarok got a nice, beefy trailer and it looks as good as expected.
The story seems to have moved forward in some great ways, and we’re actually going to party with the Norse god of war, so that’s neat. This should be another instant classic as well. Playstation really knocks them out of the park sometimes.
The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy game got a new story trailer and it still looks…iffy.
Fortunately, this game comes out in October, so we’ll actually get to see whether or not this one is any good in a short time. Which is good, because I need a new video game. I’ve been getting by on scraps and old games for like a month now. This game could be fun…or it could be a big, swirling mess.
Lastly, they announced a remake for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
This is going to be remade from the ground up, they say, completely from scratch. They’re gonna redo the entire game with modern graphics and play style. This is fantastic, considering I never played the original Knights of the Old Republic. I tried it once, years after it came out, but it had lost its luster by then and I didn’t get very far into the game. I did play the sequel a couple of times, and that was great! So I’m very excited to try the main game for reals with modern everything.
And that’s about it for game trailers. I think there were more, but these are the ones I’m most interested in. Most of them are years away, but thankfully, I can be pretty patient. Plus it gives me more time to buy that Playstation 5.
