Sony unveils new "Spider-man" game at E3 expo

Sony pulled out some big names for their E3 video games showcase, but the dramatic presentation wasn't without its flaws. Another trailer also revealed that Coco Bandicoot is playable in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is nearly sure to make an appearance as well as we near its launch this August. The crossover has features you wouldn't expect from either franchise, including multiplayer and exploration elements, so there is a chance we might see gameplay footage to clear things out.

In terms of new titles announced, Capcom revealed that Monster Hunter Worlds is coming to PS4. The game is now slated to arrive on PlayStation 4 sometime in 2018.

One of the biggest game reveals of Sony's E3 2017 press conference was the remake of SCE Japan Studio's legendary title Shadow of the Colossus. It looks like a very solid game, and it's clearly borrowing inspiration from Batman: Arkham Asylum. "You won't find better graphics on a games console this year".

It was created by the team behind The Last Guardian and ICO. It's great to see Sony is still supporting VR for the foreseeable future. It takes place beyond the game's Northern Mountains and offer new enemies and a new story expansion.

As for this page right here, we'll be updating it with information about Days Gone the second it's announced on stage. Inpatient takes the player into a Mental Hospital, where we will most likely have to run away from people with big knives a lot.

Priced at $499 (£449), Microsoft's new compact but powerful console is also set to be the world's most expensive console when it is released on November 7. The new combat mechanics keeps the gameplay feel fresh and innovative. Like most games on this list, this is also another 2018 game.

It will be the first game in the series to ship simultaneously worldwide once it arrives some time in early 2018. After all, Insomniac and Marvel made a huge splash in the gaming community past year, when they premiered the first official reveal trailer for Spider-Man PS4, with better graphics and gameplay mechanics than any of the previous Spider-Man games had ever offered. Its release date remains unconfirmed. Could we finally have a Spider-Man to rival the classic Spider-Man 2 that came out on PS2 all those years ago? Announcements like Final Fantasy VII Remake, Shenmue III, and God of War create enormous levels of hype, but the fact remains we still don't have those games, let alone have much information on them outside of a couple trailers. We only got to see the creatures for a few moments, but they were of the risky, decaying and shambling variety.
