Sony revealed the lineup to expect at the PlayStation Experience, which will take place Dec. 6 and 7 at the Venetian in Las Vegas. It will give fans an opportunity to attend panels, meet developers, but most importantly get hands-on time with games.
The particulars have been a bit nebulous until recently. Sony announced the developers participating in its first con, and the games playable at the event. The developers attending are Square Enix, Capcom, From Software, Media Molecule, Telltale Games, Ubisoft, Aksys Games, Sony Online Entertainment, EA, Disney, Ready At Dawn, Naughty Dog, Guerilla, San Diego Studios, Activision, Sucker Punch, Double Fine, Bandai Namco Games, Devolver Digital, Little Orbit, Maximum Games and Santa Monica Studios. The event will also allow attendees to buy merchandise directly from these developers.
100 of games from the attending developers will be playable during the event. The major reveals are playable demos for Bloodborne, Battlefield: Hardline, Dying Light, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, Grim Fandango, Mortal Kombat X, Tearaway Unfolded, The Order: 1886, The Tomorrow Children, The Witness, Until Dawn and many more. Additionally 80 indie games will be playable with each having their own dedicated booth. More games will be revealed leading up to the event.
Along with playable games, Project Morpheus will be playable during the event. PlayStation Experience also promises to have some major announcements for what is coming to Sony consoles in 2015.
It is a bold move for Sony to plan its own convention a month before PAX South. It being fan driven and a way for more people to check out some upcoming games is a nice touch though. The lineup reveal for playable games features some obvious gimmes such as Bloodborne, Hardline, and Mortal Kombat X.
However, being able to check out Game of Thrones, Grim Fandango and some of the other Sony Exclusives is a bit of surprise. For the modest ticket prices (minus traveling to Vegas), the event should give people a good bang for the buck. For those not attending hearing more about Sony’s plans in 2015 should be a treat.
