Thursday evening's State of Play was packed with release dates and trailers for a slew of third-party titles coming to Sony PlayStation consoles.  

The latest PlayStation State of Play event gave us a look at some PSVR 2 games as well, including Resident Evil Village. Indie-darling Tunic is finally headed to PS4 and PS5, and the horror keeps on piling on with The Callisto Protocol.

State of Play kicks off Summer Game Fest, and we've got more to look forward to with the Microsoft and Bethesda showcase on Sunday, June 12. The biggest news:

Spider-Man Remastered - Last night's State of Play brought us many surprises, but few could've expected we'd be seeing Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered coming to PC. 

Final Fantasy 16 - It’s been nearly two years since Final Fantasy 16’s reveal trailer, and since then, Square Enix has kept very quiet on the details of the new game’s world, battle system, and, well, everything really. No longer.

The Callisto Protocol - Sci-fi horror, The Callisto Protocol, got a new trailer during State of Play, as well as a deep dive about what makes it so scary.

Street Fighter 6 - Capcom came out in force yesterday with the first detailed look at Street Fighter 6, this upcoming fighter looks like a game changer. Of note: a free roaming story mode called World Tour.

You can catch up on the State of Play stream and get a rundown of all of the announcements below. 


The show opened with a Resident Evil 4  trailer. The game is dropping on PS5 next year, on March 24, 2023. And to add to the pants-soiling terror, there's some PSVR 2 content available. A PS4 version wasn't explicitly mentioned.

Sticking with Capcom, Resident Evil Village is coming to PS VR 2. See Lady Dimitrescu up close and personal, with the upcoming hardware.  

Hello Games' No Man's Sky is getting a PSVR 2 release. The game launched to a rocky start but has since flourished. A VR version exists on PC but now console players can dive in with Sony's upcoming headset.

We got our first look at Horizon Call of the Mountain – the PSVR 2 exclusive. Guerrilla Games also announced a free update to Horizon Forbidden West. Players can look forward to New Game Plus, ultra hard difficulty, new weapons and trophies and more. And it's out now! 

Stray is a third-person cat adventure game, and if that isn't enough to sell you on it, I don't know what is. PS Plus Extra members and higher can get Stray for free when it launches next month. 

Hot on the footsteps of Returnal is another sci-fi horror: The Callisto Protocol. We got a look at some gameplay in the trailer, which stays in keeping with the Dead Space vibes. The studio worked on the series so we expect it to be terrifying. The game releases on December 22 this year. 

Street Fighter 6 is coming in 2023 for PS4 and PS5. The State of Play gave us our first look at the game, and now we have a release date to boot.

Everyone's favorite fox will be making its PS4 and PS5 debut in Tunic on September 27. The title was a timed Xbox exclusive and now gamers on Sony's platform will finally have a chance to give it a whirl, and it looks adorable. 

Season: A Letter to the Future looks like it might hit you right in the feels when it drops this fall. A narrative driven game that looks full of charm, we'll be keeping an eye on this one.

Square Enix gave us a look at a very epic-looking Final Fantasy 16. It's been six years since the last instalment and thirsty fans look like they're in for a treat.
