Iron Man, Freakers and Kombat – All the news and trailers from Sony’s first State of the Play

Plenty of games, a decent running time and news on what lies ahead. No longer just the domain of Nintendo and their series of Direct presentations, but an idea that’s also home to Sony now! The home of PlayStation has a new series focusing on exactly those key points, and in the spirit of things, let’s get the show rolling with a round-up of everything that was announced!

Iron Man VR

Imagine being Iron Man, but in a game that totally doesn’t suck Hulk-sized balls for once. Iron Man VR will allow you to suit up as the armoured Avenger, in an adventure that looks pretty much as on the rail as can be, but with the added benefit of having the Friday AI keeping you informed of all the technological terror that needs to be zapped out of the sky.

Five Nights at Freddy VR: Help Wanted

Nope it’s not a VR game where you spend a night in my home as I dress up in my signature Elm Street costume, but the far less terrifying return of those damned animatronic murder machines in a mixture of new and revisited levels.

Mortal Kombat 11

NetherRealm’s bloody fighter is only a few weeks away from launch, and who could say no to another trailer? If you’re wondering if there’ll be some old school flavour in the roster, you’re in luck! Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Jax are headed into the tournament as all of time is at stake in the latest chapter of the legendary fighting game series.

No Man’s Sky VR

The Hello Games title is already preparing for a big new release in the shape of the Beyond update, but the idea of being able to pilot your little starship in full virtual reality? Now that’s an added bonus for an already terrific game.

Days Gone

I’m still hellbent on believing that Days Gone is going to be one of the more underrated jewels in PlayStation’s crown this generation, and the latest story trailer is keeping that hope alive as it shows off more of Deacon St. John’s life before and during the Freaker apocalypse.

Blood and Truth VR

Sony London Studio’s spiritual successor to the London Heist has a date! It’ll be tripping your mind maaaaaaaaan, on May 28.


Sci-fi themes. Horror in space. The team behind Stories Untold. If that sounds like your idea of a good time, then you’ve probably got quotes from Event Horizon tattooed onto your chest and you’ll also likely get a kick out of Observation and its spooky mystery on May 21.

Concrete Genie

Ask Alessandro about this game, and he’ll spin you a ripping yarn of just how much he’s looking forward to finally playing the game when it arrives later this year. Until then, he’ll have to make do with this new story trailer.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled

Sony wants you to rev your engines on their system for Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled, and to tempt you to your side they’ve gone and inserted some retro exclusive content into the upcoming kart racer remake. Like actual old school polygon graphics and one of the original 1999 tracks.

ReadySet Heroes

Multiplayer, dungeons and racing! It’s up to you and your pals to not only clear a dungeon, but to do so as quickly as possible in this quirky romp that has you attempting to beat the clock while a rival group takes on the same dungeon.

More PS VR games announced

Still not enough VR goodness for you? Well then the months ahead should have plenty to offer, as Sony also revealed some smaller indie VR gems that now have release dates:

  • Mini-Mech Mayhem – June 18
  • Jupiter & Mars – April 22
  • Falcon Age – April 9
  • Trover saves the Universe – May 31
  • Everybody’s Golf VR – May 21
  • Table of Tales – April 16
  • Vacation Simulator – June 18

And that was the State of the Play! Phew!

    It’s a shame though, CTR would’ve been perfect for the Vita, but alas that will never happen now.

    My immediate theory while watching this last night was that Sony are smartly getting all of this VR stuff out the way to show support for it and double-down a little, while also then completely clearing that table so that when E3 rolls around they can just focus on PS4 and next-gen announcements.

    NMS VR must be fun.
