We’ve all seen PlayStation Showcase 2021 and now we’re going to go through the most significant game announcements and trailers. It’s a Sony-hosted event where they reveal their upcoming third-party titles, as well as their PlayStation Studios exclusives.
Although it was only 40 minutes long, the broadcast was certainly comprehensive, covering some of the anticipated games and surprising us with new announcements. Even though a number of the games that will be shown will be released in 2021, we will play others in 2022.
As expected, we have finally been able to see new images of the expected God of War Ragnarok, as well as Gran Turismo 7; although we can not ignore the great absences of other games present during last year’s PlayStation Showcase, with no news about Final Fantasy XVI or Hogwarts Legacy. However, one of the biggest surprises came from Spider-Man 2.
Below you can find all the trailers presented during this Sony event.
