Sony shows Playstation handheld, earbuds and "Spider-Man 2"

Translation: machine translated

In addition to the game highlights "Spider-Man 2", "Alan Wake 2" and "Assassin's Creed Mirage", Sony officially unveiled the new Project Q handheld at the Playstation Showcase.

There were fireworks for Playstation fans on Wednesday evening. Sony presented over two dozen games in a livestream. On top of this, the leaked Project Q handheld was officially unveiled. A device for streaming Playstation 5 games. Sony also had new earbuds in its luggage.

Here are all the trailers and news from yesterday's Playstation Showcase.

"Fairgame"

The first trailer of the evening did not feature any gameplay, but an interesting CGI trailer. In this futuristic live service game, robberies with friends are on the programme. The game is being developed by Haven Studios, which is headed by Jade Raymond . She was previously under contract with Google Stadia.

No date yet

"Hell Divers 2"

The surprising sequel to a popular indie co-op shooter. As a Space Marine, you fight in a squad against hordes of aliens. From a third-person perspective instead of a bird's eye view. In terms of content and humour, it is strongly reminiscent of "Starship Troopers".

Released in 2023 for PC and PS5.

"Immortals of Aveum"

From EA comes a fast-paced first-person magic baller game in the style of "Doom". Instead of hell monsters, there is a fantasy setting including space dragons.

Released on 20 July 2023 for PC, PS5, Xbox Series.

"Ghost Runner 2"

Am I looking at a sci-fi motorbike racing game? Not quite. It's "Ghost Runner 2", in which you play a cyber ninja who shimmies spectacularly through a dystopian world and cuts enemies in half.

"Phantom Blade"

A dark fantasy role-playing game with samurai, creepy characters and hectic sword action that makes me sweat just watching it.

No date yet

"Sword of The Sea"

Goosebumps. The meditative sand surfing game "Journey" gets a spiritual successor with "Sword of The Sea". I am pumped.

No date yet.

"The Talos Principle 2"

A puzzle game in a futuristic world in which you solve tricky puzzles as a robot. If you like "Portal" or have played the first part, you know what to expect.

Released in 2023 for PC and PS5.

"Neva"

An enchanting indie game from the makers of "Gris". You play a white-haired lady who loses her magical wolf-stag to mysterious black creatures.

Published in 2024.

"Cat Quest Pirates of the Purribean"

"Cat Quest" is a cuddly role-playing game series in which you experience great adventures with cats in a fantasy setting.

Released in 2024 for PC and PS5.

"Foamstars"

Square Enix belongs at a Playstation event like the Amen in church. They had a counterpart to "Splatoon" in their luggage. Instead of squid aliens shooting ink, there are fluffy foam clouds and hip surfers. It's about time someone copied Nintendo's brightly coloured multiplayer shooter.

Released for PS4 and PS5. Without date.

"The Plucky Squire"

The next cuddly indie game looks like a picture book until it switches to a 3D game world in a children's room. It's long been on my wishlist and belongs on yours too.

Released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PC and Switch.

"Teardown"

Already a hit on PC, the game with the most beautiful block explosions is coming soon to Playstation. In the campaign, you plan raids with a time limit and destroy entire levels in the process. There is also countless content from the Community, which will hopefully find its way onto the PS5.

Released in 2023 for the PS5. Already available for PC.

"Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater"

A game I've been meaning to catch up on for ages is getting an official remake. What many consider to be the best and wackiest "Metal Gear Solid" is being re-released.

Without a date. To be released for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series.

"Towers of Aghasba"

A prehistoric third-person action game with an imaginative world, giant turtles and flying cleaner fish. It's also a city builder. Looks exciting

Without date

"Final Fantasy XVI"

Square Enix for the second time. The medieval fantasy action role-playing game with magic, dragons and giant monsters, which you can apparently also control yourself. Colleague Kevin Hofer is certainly not the only one who is already excited about it.

Released on 22 June for the PS5.

"Alan Wake 2"

The long-awaited sequel to one of my absolute favourite games. The creepy survival mystery game about horror author Alan Wake continues. In the trailer, however, not only the writer is a playable character, but also an FBI agent. Together they try to defeat the mysterious darkness once and for all.

Released in October for PC, PS5, Xbox Series.

"Assassin's Creed Mirage"

The first trailer for the next "Assassin's Creed", which is set to follow the formula of the first instalments. In other words, more sneaking, less open-world role-playing.

Released on 12 October for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series.

"Revenant Hill"

Continuation from the same developers who worked on the adventure game "Night in the Woods"

No date yet.

"Granblue Fantasy: Relink"

Colourful action adventure with numerous heroes and heroines who are not stingy with snappy remarks.

Released in 2023 for PC, PS4 and PS5.

"Street Fighter VI"

The fighting game will be released soon, and a new trailer has been released.

Released on 2 June for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series.

"Ultros"

In this indie game, you fight your way through a colourful LSD world full of weird monsters.

Without date

"Tower of Fantasy"

Furious action, flying robot sharks, a dreamlike underwater world and battle suits. This game seems to have it all. It's already available on various platforms. I've even installed it, should I ever play it again.

Released in summer for PS5. Already available for PC and mobile.

"Dragon's Dogma 2"

One of the biggest RPG insider tips, so much so that it is almost no longer an insider tip. The epic boss battles stood out in the first part. Apparently, they seem to be back again.

Without a date

"Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted 2"

Another instalment in the jump-scare series for virtual reality.

Released at the end of the year for PS VR2.

"Resident Evil 4 VR"

Towards the end of the presentation, the trailer for the upcoming VR version of "Resident Evil 4" was shown. The mod is supposed to be free if you own the main game.

Without a date.

"Arizona Sunshine 2"

The sequel to the zombies shooting gallery game.

Released in 2023 for PS VR 2 and PC VR.

"Synapse"

In "Synapse", you shoot with one hand while throwing objects at your opponents with the other thanks to telekinesis.

Released on 4 July for PS VR2.

"Beat Saber"

I welcome any reason to play "Beat Saber" again. This "Queen" music add-on is just what I need.

Available for PC-VR, PS VR2, Oculus.

"Marathon"

Only a CGI trailer, but an interesting setting presented by Bungie. In a colourful, futuristic world, people who look like crash test dummies fight each other. Set to be a multiplayer extraction shooter.

Without a date.

"Destiny 2 The Final Shape"

The eighth expansion brings back actor Nathan Fillion as Cayde-6.

Without date.

"Concord"

There's absolutely nothing to see in this trailer. I had to read the description to find out that it's a multiplayer egoshooter.

Released in 2024 for PC and PS5.

Project Q and Playstation Earbuds

An 8-inch display and the ability to stream games from the PS5 via Wi-Fi. This is Project Q, Sony's new handheld. At the same time, Sony has unveiled earbuds that offer lossless sound and low latency thanks to new audio technology.

Released at the end of the year.

"Spider-Man 2"

As expected, the highlight came at the end of the show. In "Spider-Man 2", you play both Miles Morales and Peter Parker with his new symbiotic suit. The trailer shows how you can switch back and forth between the two. Peter's tentacle attacks remind me of "Protoype", if anyone remembers that one.

The new villain Kraven the Hunter was also introduced. There was also a spectacular chase across the sea. Miles is even faster thanks to his wingsuit upgrade. There were also sneaky passages, although they were the most annoying thing about the last part. Luckily, they seem to be optional and you can simply solve them if you're a gross motorist like me.

Released in autumn 2023 for PS5.

Being the game and gadget geek that I am, working at digitec and Galaxus makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop – but it does take its toll on my wallet. I enjoy tinkering with my PC in Tim Taylor fashion and talking about games on my podcast http://www.onemorelevel.ch.To satisfy my need for speed, I get on my full suspension mountain bike and set out to find some nice trails. My thirst for culture is quenched by deep conversations over a couple of cold ones at the mostly frustrating games of FC Winterthur.
