This year’s PlayStation Games Showcase was an event that left gamers in awe. With the introduction of new and exciting games, the event brought to light the potential of PlayStation gaming. The showcase presented a variety of games, each with its own unique experience. However, there were some games that stood out from the rest. In this article, we will discuss those titles, and share why we are excited to learn more about and play them as soon as they release.
Let’s begin our list with a game that piqued our interest with its gameplay and epic story.
Immortals of Aveum
Set to release in July of this year, Immortals of Aveum is a first-person magic shooter that is set in a fantasy universe on the verge of oblivion. In this game, you’ll play as Jak, a battlemage that has joined an elite order of mages that work together to save the world.
This game’s combat and world caught our attention at first glance. It looks like an epic adventure story that we could truly get invested in. The Creative Director for this game worked on titles such as Dead Space, and Call of Duty so we’re sure the story is going to be full of action, adventure, and beauty. This is one game we’ll be sure to let you know more about as it releases this summer.
Phantom Blade Zero
Next up, we have Phantom Blade Zero! This game is one that looks like it’s going to be challenging, but fun! Phantom Blade Zero is an action RPG that has a deep story, and fast-paced combat. From what little we could find out about the game’s story you’ll play as ‘the Dark Raider’ who’s has been exiled by “The Order”.
You’ll fight your way through the game’s many enemies while on your path of vengeance. You’ll unlock many secrets along your journey as you explore a world full of world-bending martial arts, and steampunk!
Phantom Blade Zero is a title we’ll be following closely so let us know if this is one that piqued your interest in the comments section.
Teardown is a game that piqued our interest mostly due to its visual style. Teardown is a game that allows you to tear down walls with vehicles and explosives, but that’s not all the world itself is fully destructible.
The game looks great, and we’re truly in love with its design. Being able to completely teardown almost everything in this game really opens the door to all sorts of creative ways to play. If you’ve already played teardown share your thoughts and let us know how much fun you’ve had playing this game!
Final Fantasy XVI
We’re not sure if we can say anything about Final Fantasy XVI that hasn’t already been said in the gaming space. The game looks epic all around and the trailer shown to us during this year’s showcase just happened to confirm more of what we already knew.
The game looks like an absolute blast. The combat looks great, the game is visually stunning and since this is a Final Fantasy game, the story is sure to excite us as well as tug at our heartstrings.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
This will probably come as no surprise, but we’re excited about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The first two games were nothing short of amazing, and this installment looks to follow suit. In this one, you will now get to play as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales. The gameplay for both looks smooth and crisp, but the aspect of the game that excites us the most is its story.
From the trailer we see both Miles and Peter’s stories converging. Peter has bonded with the Venom symbiote and you can already see the slight changes in his personality. Miles is in pursuit of Dr. Curt Conners, and It will be interesting to see how this story will play out in-game as the two will need to take down a series of villains all while being hunted by Kraven the Hunter.
There will be a lot going on, which means a ton of fun for PlayStation fans when this game releases later this year.
In conclusion, the PlayStation Games Showcase 2023 was an event that showcased the potential of PlayStation gaming. The games that were presented left gamers excited about the future of gaming. The showcase presented a variety of games that cater to different gaming preferences. With these games, the ultimate gaming experience awaits.
The future of gaming on PlayStation is looking bright, and we can’t wait to see what new games and the future holds.
