Sony held a new PlayStation State of Play streaming event earlier today. It mostly showed off third-party games, although it did show a new gameplay look at its big first-party PS5 game for the fall, Marvel's Spider-Man 2, which is due out on October 20. We also got a new trailer for Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth and a release date of February 29, 2024.
Here's a look at some of the other highlights from the State of Play event:
Helldivers II - We got an extended gameplay trailer from the upcoming third person sci-fi shooter sequel from developer Arrowhead Game Studios. We also got an updated release date. It will be released for PS5 and PC on February 8, 2024.
Baby Steps - We got another look at this " literal walking simulator" from indie developers Bennett Foddy, Gabe Cuzzillo and Maxi Boch that has you controlling a guy named Nate as he just, well, walks. Devolver Digital will release this game for the PS5 and PC in the summer of 2024.
