FF7 Intergrade, Kena Bridge of Spirits… here are Sony’s State of Play announcements

The PS5 unveiled its upcoming games at an online conference on February 25. Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, Sifu, Returnal, Soulstorm or even Kena Bridge of Spirit, there was a lot, although we can regret the lack of surprise announcements.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade

Sony held a virtual conference on the night of February 25-26 to present the PS5 titles that will arrive in the coming months. If we had the right to a lot of gameplay videos, some fans regret the lack of big surprises. The star of the evening was all the same the PS5 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which promises a lot of things, including an unpublished chapter.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade

Final Fantasy 7 Remake, released in April 2020 on PS4, will be entitled to a second youth on PS5 with improved graphics. Players will therefore be able to enjoy finer environments and reworked lighting effects. If the improvements are not really obvious in the video published by the manufacturer, we will still appreciate reduced loading times as well as some nice additions such as a photo mode. Those who have the game on PS4 will be able to have it at no additional cost on the new console and will even be able to transfer their saves.

This PS5 episode also features a new adventure featuring the character of Yuffie. Taking place during the events of FF7 Remake, it will allow us to find the environments of the base game and will make us explore new ones. An entire program.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade will arrive on PS5 on June 10, 2021.

Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis

Ever Crisis was not announced during State of Play, but shortly thereafter by Square Enix. This is a mobile game bringing together the whole story of the FF7 universe titles in a single adventure. As we can see, the gameplay will be standardized and adapted to the touch screen. No release date for the moment.

Square Enix also unveiled FF7 The First Soldier, a Battle Royale on mobile taking place before the events of FF7. Again, no release date.

Returnal

This is the other big sensation of the evening: Returnal. At the controls of an astronaut lost on an unknown planet, you will have to use guns to get out of this mess. An action game, but also a puzzle game. The particularity of Returnal is indeed to completely upset the levels when you die. Because yes, there is a story of a time loop. Add a dose of horror and you have one of the most intriguing titles of the next few months. When An Endless Day meets Alien.

Release April 30, 2021

Oddworld Soulstorm

More than 15 years after The Stranger’s Fury, the license Oddworld returns with a new adventure: Soulstorm. This time, we will re-control the famous Abe in a game that furiously recalls the first adventures of the saga, released on PS1. The reflection will be at the heart of the gameplay in this platform game and we will always walk with great pleasure this fascinating universe.

Released on April 6, 2021.

Kena Bridge of Spirits

Without contest one of the prettiest games on the PS5 yet. More than a technical demo, Kena Bridge of Spirit promises to immerse us in a magical world full of dangers. The video impresses and we can not wait to take the title in hand.

Released August 24, 2021.

Deathloop

We already knew Arkane Studios’ new baby (Dishonored, Prey), but he showed himself a little more in a long video. We discover some phases of the gameplay, but also its very sixties atmosphere inspired by spy films. Then again, we have a time loop story that rolls back to zero every time you pass the weapon to the left. Note that the game is published by Bethesda (Microsoft) but will be a temporary PS5 excluded.

Released May 21, 2021.

Solar Ash

This is a game with an intriguing artistic direction that will immerse you in a world as colorful as it is strange. It’s a 3D action / platform game that is all about speed and movement. As you can see in the video, it promises some very nervous gaming sessions.

Released during the year 2021.

Sifu

This is one of the new announcements of the evening. Sifu is the new game from the makers of Absolver and once again, the castagne will be at the center of the gameplay. You play as a kung fu master who will have to put ideas in place to his enemies. As we can see in the video, inspiration is clearly to be found in the Hong Kong action films. We can’t wait to try.

Released during the year 2021.

Knockout City

Could Knockout City become a must-have multiplayer game like Rocket League or Fall Guys? He has in any case all the assets for. It’s a prisoner ball game completely crazy in which all the blows are allowed to achieve your ends. In addition, it is intended to be fun, colorful and will offer cross-platform games (it was also announced on Switch). If you have the soul of a White Goodman …

Released May 21, 2021.

Crash Bandicoot 4 It’s About Time

The fourth installment of Crash Bandicoot has already been released on PS4, but will be entitled to its PS5 version. On the menu, finer graphics, very reduced loading times but also and above all the possibility of playing in 4K 60 FPS. The DualSense controller will also be used with new effects. If you already have the game on PS4, you won’t need to pay to enjoy this new experience. It will even be possible to transfer your backups. What more ? On the gameplay side, the game will remain exactly the same as that on PS4.

Released on March 12, 2021.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach

Arguably the least commented announcement of the evening. The horror game license that has delighted players and especially streamers will have the right to its component exclusively in 3D. It will be about escaping a huge mall while being chased by nightmarish creatures.

Released during the year 2021.

Announcements, but few surprises.

Overall, this Sony conference was a bit of a disappointment. The builder wasn’t stingy with gameplay videos, but the announcements were lacking. Indeed, many expected news of headlines like God of War Ragnarok, Final Fantasy 16, Ratchet and Clank or Horizon Forbidden West. In short, no news of the big blockbusters supposed to carry the machine throughout its life.

For that, we will have to wait a little longer, but there is no doubt that Sony will have more surprise conferences like these in store for us to unveil its line-up for the coming months. The pandemic not helping, it is true that the new console (which is struggling to be distributed) is sorely lacking in strong titles since its release, but we hope that games like Returnal, SoulStorm or Deathloop will manage to spruce up this table. Likewise, we can have hope as for the second half of the year, which could hold many surprises for us. However, Gran Turismo 7 shouldn’t be expected to arrive at that time, as Sony has already announced its shift to 2022.

And you, which games attracted you the most during this Sony conference? Are you impatient to immerse yourself in the universe of Final Fantasy 7 or are you expecting more new games, like Soulstorm or Returnal? Tell us in the comments !
