E3 2017: Highlights From the Media Showcase and Beyond

E3 isn't just about what happens on stage! Here's a massive rundown of even more PlayStation news coming out of E3 2017.

Whew! We’re still recovering from last night’s densely packed Media Showcase, featuring our closest look yet at Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War, Days Gone and more, plus a few surprise announcements (Shadow of the Colossus!!) and some rather excellent music to open the event.

Of course, E3 isn’t just about what happens on stage. We’ve worked with dozens of creators to assemble this mega-list of updates on games on deck for release on PlayStation platforms — with a few new announcements sprinkled in for good measure.

Finally, don’t forget that we’ll have ongoing coverage from the E3 show floor all week long! Tune into PlayStation Live from E3 2017 Tuesday through Thursday, and keep an eye out for even more new updates throughout the week. Enjoy!

Marvel’s Spider-Man
Insomniac Games
PS4
During the demo, you’ll see a sampling of Spider-Man’s more powerful improvisational and acrobatic combat style. He’s honed his skills and he’s stronger and more confident in combat. Dodging, using webs, and aerial combat are all second nature. You may also notice the usage of Web Trip Wire and impact webs. After spending eight years fighting crime in the city, Parker’s genius in the lab and workshop has led to the creation of many new gadgets and devices that he can use as Spider-Man during the course of the game.

Undertale is a role-playing game where no one has to get hurt. It’s a humorous game that I created to evoke the same feelings that many classic Japanese role-playing games had given me. Happiness, sadness, fear, courage, friendship, hope, love, justice…

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is the latest entry in the long-running franchise and will take place in the latest evolution of Kamurocho, the infamous red-light district in Tokyo, and the new city of Onomichi, a beautiful, sleepy port town in Hiroshima Prefecture. Powered by the new “Dragon Engine,” the game will bring the two locales to life with unparalleled realism. The stakes have never been higher for Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima with a heart of gold, because someone has unwisely decided to hurt his surrogate daughter Haruka. To make matters worse, Kiryu finds out that Haruka now has an infant son that he must look after. With a baby in tow, Kiryu must do whatever it takes to protect the people he calls family. Even if it means mercilessly bashing thugs with various street signs.
