It’s unbelievable that the last PlayStation Showcase was back in June 2020, which was about a year ago. It showed us games like Returnal, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales and more. Most of those games have already been released since then, so it’s the perfect time for another PlayStation Showcase.
During the PlayStation Showcase September 2021 presentation, Sony announced many of the upcoming games slated to arrive on the PlayStation 5 in the future. These include both third-party and first-party exclusives, which you can check out below:
Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic Remake
Sony Interactive Entertainment, Aspyr Media, and Lucasfilm Games have announced Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic Remake for the PlayStation 5. A release date was not announced.
Project EVE will launch for PlayStation 5, developer SHIFT-UP announced. A release date was not announced.
In the not-too-distant future, mankind is expelled from Earth after losing the battle against the invaders called the NA:tives. To win back Earth, the player becomes Eve, the survivor of the paratrooper squad deployed from the Colony, who must fight through powerful enemies with new comrades. If you fancy hyper-action games like Devil May Cry and Bayonetta, this one may be for you.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will launch for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on 25 March 2022, publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software announced.
Forspoken will launch for PS5 and PC in spring 2022, publisher Square Enix and developer Luminous Productions announced.
Protagonist Frey is a directionless, gritty yet street smart young woman who has persevered despite her rough upbringing in New York City. And her life hasn’t really gotten any easier now that she’s about to turn 21. Things take a turn for the unexpected when she’s magically transported to Athia, a land where fantasies and nightmares are suddenly very real.
Playing as Frey, you’ll need to harness newly discovered magical abilities to battle the terrifying monsters that inhabit the land. To have a chance of returning home, she’ll also have to contend with the Tantas — destructive and twisted all-powerful matriarchs who have dominion over Athia.
As previously announced, Frey is performed by Ella Balinska, so I hope you enjoyed a longer look at her performance in the trailer. I’m excited to reveal more characters from Forspoken and some of the fantastic actors behind them too: Jonathan Cake plays Frey’s companion “Cuff.” Cuff is a magical, sentient bracelet of uncertain origin who helps Frey navigate through the sprawling landscapes of Athia.
Janina Gavankar plays Tanta Sila, the strongest and most formidable Tanta in Athia. While she once protected Athia with her unparalleled prowess in battle, Tanta Sila is now a dictatorial despot who is mad with power. Keala Settle plays Johedy, the hard-nosed archivist who provides Frey with guidance during her journey in Athia.
Monica Barbaro plays Auden, a kind and open-minded young woman who prioritizes the needs of others before her own. She is quick to accept Frey in Athia and sees more in her than Frey does in herself.
The game’s music was composed by the legendary Bear McCreary, who you may know from God Of War (2018) and The Walking Dead. In addition to Bear, the renowned Garry Schyman (BioShock) is also composing musical tracks for the game.
The game is also written by Gary Whitta (Rogue One), Amy Hennig (Uncharted series), Allison Rymer and Todd Stashwick.

Now, we are bringing you the complete Alan Wake experience, including the two story-expansions The Signal and The Writer, originally released as DLCs, with all-new 4K visuals, updated environments, cutscenes, and a brand-new making-of commentary where I take a trip down memory lane.
