State of Play Insights: Event Length & Games Lineup Revealed


Get ready, gamers! The gaming scene is about to be set on fire as Sony gears up for its premiere State of Play event of 2024. The Xbox Developer Direct has already given us a glimpse of what’s to come in 2024, and now it’s Sony’s turn to dazzle us with its lineup. The PlayStation 5 has been waiting for some fresh additions, and it seems like the wait is almost over. Set to entertain us for a solid 40 minutes, the event promises to showcase more than 15 games, including some we’ve been eagerly anticipating and others that have been making rounds in the rumor mill. Let’s dive into the exciting world of play expected today, January 31, 2024.

Before we jump into the details, did you know you can catch the PlayStation State of Play action live? That’s right! Tune in for potential thrilling updates on games like Death Stranding 2, Rise of the Ronin, and many more waiting in the wings.

Now, on to the confirmed game roster for this awe-inspiring event. We’ve got three titles officially on the docket for January 31, 2024:

First up is “Rise of the Ronin,” which is shaping up to be an intriguing blend of Dark Souls, Assassin’s Creed, and Ghost of Tsushima. It’s the latest from the creators of the critically acclaimed Nioh and Ninja Gaiden series, so you know it’s going to be something special.

Next in line is “Stellar Blade,” a game that sounds like it’s going to take us on a wild ride with its mix of intense action à la Bayonetta and an atmospheric journey reminiscent of NieR: Automata, all set in a jaw-dropping post-apocalyptic world.

And then there’s the much-talked-about “Death Stranding 2” from the legendary Hideo Kojima. It seems Kojima has let the cat out of the bag via social media, and we can’t wait to see if the new trailer will confirm all the juicy details that have been leaking out over the past few weeks.

But that’s not all. Alongside these three blockbusters, the State of Play is set to reveal 12 more games. And, while we’re not ones to indulge in spoilers, it looks like some eager beavers have let details slip through the cracks, giving us a peek at what might just be coming our way:

“Concord” is a mysterious PS5 exclusive shooter cooked up by Firewalk Studios. This studio recently joined the Sony family, and we’re on the edge of our seats to see what they’ve been brewing.

The gaming calendar also points to “Final Fantasy VII Rebirth,” undeniably one of the biggest titles of the year. It’s coming up fast, hitting shelves on February 29, 2024, and we have a hunch Sony wants to remind us to mark our calendars.

Shrouded in mystery since The Game Awards 2022, “Judas” is the next head-turning project from the creator of BioShock, and it’s bound to grab our full attention.

The much-loved Metro series seems to be getting a new addition with “Metro Awakening,” promising to not only continue the gripping post-apocalyptic saga but also to bring some excitement to PS VR2 fans.

After a bit of a vanishing act last year, we’re betting the “Silent Hill 2 Remake” is now on the brink of being ready to spook us with an official release date to make up for the delay.

A wild card rumor has it that a “Sonic x Shadow Generations” might speed onto the scene. This remaster, according to whispers, could bring back the fun of 2017’s Sonic Generations.

And speaking of returns, “Until Dawn” could be making a comeback in sync with its upcoming film adaptation.

That wraps up the teaser trailer of what to expect from the State of Play event. So grab your controllers, find a comfy spot, and join us as we discover what Sony has in store for us. It’s bound to be an epic ride filled with surprises, and you won’t want to miss a single moment!
