E3 2017: Highlights From the Media Showcase and Beyond

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!

Milestone
PS4
The new MXGP3 will offer you a dynamic, ever-more enjoyable gaming experience thanks to a series of innovative graphics and techniques introduced by the new Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine, which will take the game experience to a surprising new level. Hit the gas and get ready to tackle unpredictable, dynamic weather conditions in a competition which is unique in its genre. From sun to heavy rain, every change will decisively influence the rider’s visibility and the highly-deformable ground, putting even the most expert player to the test. And it is the ground which provides the greatest challenge: mud, dust and dynamic deformations will be the master of all, while the sounds of engines running at full throttle, souped up with a brand new audio engine, merge with the ambient noise.

ROM: Extraction
PS VR - ROM Extraction
First Contact Entertainment
PlayStation VR (Aim Controller support)
First Contact Entertainment is a virtual reality studio made up of game industry veterans from world-class franchises like Call of Duty, Overwatch, Halo, Metal Gear Solid, Adrift, and Overkill’s The Walking Dead VR. As a studio we’re focused on raising and setting the bar for immersive VR gaming: creating high-quality visuals, game mechanics, characters and narrative with a focus on fun and replayability. Our debut VR game ROM: Extraction released in 2016, and we’re excited to announce that ROM is now coming to PS VR! After exploring the enhanced mechanics made possible by the PS Aim Controller, we’re inspired to develop additional ROM content exclusively for PlayStation VR and PS VR aim controller. Players can expect multiple new weapons, new types of enemies, new levels and an entirely new game mode. ROM itself is a twist on the classic arcade shooter–and with the addition of this new exclusive PS VR content, we are taking it even further! Set in the year 2076, you’ll take on the role of an Extractor, on a mission to obtain alien resources to bring back to Earth. Unfortunately, your ship has been overrun by extraterrestrial AI, laser-focused on protecting these vital resources. By combining your futuristic weapons with your ability to slow down time, you’ll eliminate enemies like never before in this high-intensity arcade experience. ROM: Extraction is VR gaming with a twist, and we’re thrilled to develop that further with PlayStation VR and the PS VR Aim Controller, coming Fall 2017.

The Persistence
PS VR - The Persistence
Firesprite Ltd.
PlayStation VR
With E3 approaching, we are excited to reveal some of the terrifying cast you will encounter on board The Persistence!

During a scientific experiment, hundreds of the ship’s crew were accidentally teleported in to space. ‘IRIS’, the ships computer, tried to bring them all back but the DNA of The Persistence’s crew was merged and began to mutate.

This is how The Berserker was born. He’s 9ft tall, over 4ft wide, and has serious anger issues! It’s much safer to run and hide when you see a Berserker but if you’re ready to take a big risk, you can use his rage to your advantage. If you can somehow cause him damage, then the red mist descends and he’ll smash anything and anybody, including other mutants! Of course, if he sees you then his snarling face is going to be the last thing you ever see!

The only mutant onboard that he’s unable to kill is The Weeper, who will paralyse anyone that comes too close to her. She’s truly terrifying!
