Sony is getting ready to hold its Future of Gaming PS5 games event.
The Future of Gaming event takes place at 9pm UK time on June 11. It will be broadcast live on the PlayStation website.
The broadcast will last for just over an hour, and feature a look at upcoming PlayStation 5 games.
“This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together,” reads a Sony post.
“A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before.
“This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.”
Viewers have been told that the experience will be broadcast at 1080p and 30 frames-per-second, and that headphones are recommended.
“It’s also best if you watch while wearing headphones, if you can — there’s some cool audio work in the show, and it might be harder to appreciate if it’s pumped through your phone or laptop speakers.”
As for the games, recent leaks have given fans a pretty good idea about what to expect from the broadcast.
Bloodborne Remaster: This is a bit of a strange one considering Bloodborne is just a few years old, but a recent report suggests the From Software game will be remastered for PS5.
That’s according to industry insider Sloth Mom, who tweets:”So, about that Bloodborne PC port. You would’ve been hearing about it today anyway, because as far as I understand it, it was due to be announced at the now-delayed PS5 event that was scheduled for today.
“Now, I said earlier I’d share more info about it. So, what I can confirm is that it’s not just a PC port of Bloodborne, what was supposed to be revealed today was a Bloodborne Remastered/HD edition that was coming for PS5 and PC.
The Bloodborne remaster will reportedly be handled by a brand new studio, most likely Bluepoint.
Demon’s Souls Remake: Speaking of Bluepoint, rumour has it the studio is also working on a Demon’s Souls remake for the PS5.
Reports of a Demon’s Souls remaster have been doing the rounds for quite some time, with the latest reports even suggesting it will close the show. The Demon’s Souls remake is said to be a timed exclusive for the PS5, so expect an Xbox Series X release at some point in the future.
Gran Turismo 7: A new Gran Turismo game isn’t a matter of if, but when. Indeed, Sony has been pretty open about the next Gran Turismo game being in development, with series creator Kazunori Yamauchi talking about the future of GT in 2019.
“I think in terms of races themselves and physics GT Sport has really reached the best place that we’ve ever reached – we’re at a very good place,” he said.
“On the other hand, obviously we’re working on the next Gran Turismo already, and the world of sport we’ve achieved through GT Sport is something I’ve always imagined to be the future of Gran Turismo. We were able to establish that now.”
With Sony recently filing fresh trademarks for the Gran Turismo series, reports that a new game will launch alongside the console have gained some traction.
Silent Hill: After Hideo Kojima’s high-profile departure from Konami, Silent Hill fans were rightly concerned that the series would never be seen or heard from again.
However, reliable survival horror insider AestheticGamer recently claimed that Silent Hill is in the works as a PS5 exclusive title, and that series creator Keiichiro Toyama is on board to direct.
It’s been claimed that Sony Japan Studios will be developing the new game, which isn’t related to Kojima’s cancelled Silent Hills project. It’s also said that the new Silent Hill will take the form of a soft reboot, and would be preceded by a demo.
