Coming into the gaming space – The New Indian Express

Express News Service

BENGALURU: I like that video game announcements are a big event and millions of people watch some trailers together online. But “State of Play” that happened last week had a single game that eclipsed almost every other game on their list: the trailer for “God of War: Ragnarok.”

We finally have a visible reason to believe and be excited about the game actually coming out in November. Aside from Kratos and his now angrier son, I’m starting to think that historical Japan seems to be the theme of the era. I’m personally excited about ‘Rise of the Ronin’; the trailer for this PS5-exclusive RPG was also shown on State of Play.

Now the State of Play event was relatively small, but there were two other games that I look forward to next year. One of these is ‘Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge’, for which an enhanced version will be released on the virtual reality PSVR2. I also enjoyed the trailer for ‘Pacific Drive’, which shows interesting car action in a dystopian world.

My review of trailers at State of Play is now being cut short by another event last week, the Tokyo Game Show. The Tokyo Game Show is an annual event with a focus on games developed in Japan, with an occasional focus on international game developers. Although Tokyo Game Show is more than just a showcase of trailers, I only saw the trailers online and that was exciting enough.

Unlike State of Play, the TGS extends across game consoles. This was emphasized in the gameplay of ‘Wuthering Waves’, a story-based open-world game that will be released on PC and mobile. This may be the least interesting game announcement for others, as TGS also featured “Street Fighter 6,” “Yakuza,” and “Sonic Frontiers,” as well as other games from well-known developers like Capcom, Square Enix, Konami, and more.

Interestingly, though, it felt like the biggest news to hit active gamers on social media wasn’t exactly a planned announcement of a GTA 6 in-development leak reaching the wider audience, featuring their first female protagonist. Take 2 Interactive, owner of Rockstar, is said to be cleaning up the leaked content.
