Ragnarok’ overshadowed almost every other game- The New Indian Express

Express Message Service

I love that video game announcements are a big event and millions of people watch a series of trailers online together. But Sony’s State of Play, which took place last week, had a single game (trailer) that overshadowed almost every other game on their list, God of War: Ragnarok.

We finally have visible reason to believe and look forward to the game actually coming out in November. Kratos and his now angrier son aside, I’m starting to think historical Japan seems to be the theme of this era. I personally look forward to it Rise of the Ronin; The trailer for this PS5 exclusive RPG was also shown at State of Play.

Well, the State of Play event was relatively small – but there were two other games I’m looking forward to next year. One of them is Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, for which an enhanced version is set to be released on the virtual reality PSVR2. I also liked the Pacific Drive trailer, which shows interesting car action in a dystopian world. My review of the trailers at State of Play is now interrupted by another event from last week – the Tokyo Game Show.

The Tokyo Game Show (TGS) is an annual event focusing on games developed in Japan, with an occasional focus on international game developers.

While the Tokyo Game Show is more than just a presentation of trailers, I only saw the trailers online – and that was exciting enough. Unlike the State of Play, TGS extends across gaming consoles. This was highlighted in the gameplay of Wuthering Waves, a story-driven open-world game to be released on PC and mobile.

This might be the least interesting game announcement for others considering that TGS also presented Street Fighter 6, Yakuza and Sonic Frontiers as well as other games from notable developers like Capcom, Square Enix, Konami and others.

Interestingly, though, it felt like the biggest news hitting social media-active gamers wasn’t actually a planned announcement — footage of Grand Theft Auto 6 in development, featuring its first female protagonist, was reaching a wider audience. Take 2 Interactive, which owns Rockstar, is reportedly deleting the leaked content.
