Details of Sony’s upcoming E3 press release have been leaked. A source that has contacts within Sony’s worldwide studios and a further contact at the BBH New York marketing firm, which works with Sony for part of its promotion, has leaked details of what to expect from Sony at E3 2014.
The unknown source has told DualShockers that Sony will show off a 3 minute trailer for Uncharted on PS4, demoing in-engine footage and gameplay, which release is said to be Summer 2015. Visuals are supposedly unprecedented and set a benchmark for console graphics. The gameplay will feature a tropical setting and differing time periods with Nate and Francis. This is huge news for Uncharted fans. I’m am very interested in seeing the gameplay.
Other leaked details include price drops for the PlayStation 3 and Vita that will be revealed at E3. Sony Japan Studios will reportedly debut Project Beast at E3, a game similar to Demon Souls, The Last Guardian for PS4, and a third title that is being kept secret. We know that Sony will be showing a Project Morpheus game at E3, so that secret title could be that or something even better. The following are some other topics that might be covered.
Media Molecule’s new title will be a landmark title for Morpheus. 3D world building, beautiful, quirky visuals. Expected late 2015.
Gran Turismo 6 is coming to PS4 as 1080p 60FPS repackaged title in the vein of Gran Turismo 7: Prologue. Stunning visuals, extra features (social connectivity, new tracks, dlc etc). Coming mid-late 2015.
God of War 4 teaser will be present – will be CG with snippets of in-engine footage. A little early for reveal, but is designed to offset negativity surrounding canceled new IP and generate excitement – also to partially offset CG announce of Gears of War at Microsoft presser. Late 2015. Date wont be announced.
Kill Strain trademark is related to Syphon Filter reboot for PS4. Sony Bend working on revamping the franchise. Stealth, beautiful visuals and a possible Winter 2014 title.
Wipeout is also making the transition to PS4. Source is unsure of who is developing it, but hints that it could be Sony London, Evolution, or Firesprite.
Quantic Dream has a trailer prepared, unsure whether it is penciled in for Gamescom or E3. Sony will be watching Microsoft’s presser earlier in the day to gauge whether additional titles will need to be slotted in to dampen hype. Expect Dark Sorcerer- like visuals in real time. Off-topic, but still relevant, they are close to deal to become a Worldwide Studios developer, along with Ready At Dawn.
Speaking of Ready At Dawn, The Order: 1886 will get a stage demo. Sony is expecting great things from the title, franchise hopes rest on its performance.
Ninja Theory working on a PS4 exclusive – possible Heavenly Sword sequel which was shelved a number of years ago. Quite far into development.
Sony London will be at E3. First AAA title in many years. 3rd person title.
Guerrilla Games bringing their RPG to E3. Provocative setting.
Sucker Punch busy at work on an inFAMOUS: Second Son DLC. New powers. Possible new setting. E3 debut.
