Play status begins 1:00 pm PT / 4:00 pm ET / 9:00 pm BST today (August 6).
Today’s state of play live stream is almost here, and it has got a few goals: keep us excited about upcoming PS4 games, and give us a taste of the times to come on PS5.
Surprisingly, Sony has done a very good job of keeping expectations low for the event, publicly telling us what we’ll see. But don’t fret: We’ve been told to expect 40 minutes worth of PS5, PS4 and PS VR games, which should make for a good afternoon watch.
In a blog post announcing the State of Play live stream, Sony’s Sid Shuman specifically noted that the event would “focus on third-party published games coming to PS4 and PS VR” and noted that “PS5 Game update “will be the third party and indie titles you last saw in June’s PS5 showcase. ”
Now that you know what to do, here you need to watch today’s state of live stream:
How to watch Sony’s state of play live stream
Sony announced the State of Play live stream on Play Live’s YouTube and Twitch channels. You can follow along in the embedded video above.
What do we expect from the Sony State of Play event
The biggest game we’ve heard that people on the Alden Ring are praying for updates is the title created by Dark Souls developer FromSoftware in collaboration with George RR Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire. Major upcoming PS4 games include Marvel’s Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, so perhaps we’ll revisit those titles.
Resident Evil: Village, however, seems more likely a title to take a deep dive. It scared us to go and return to the PS5 game event.
personally? I Shoot for the Stars, and Want the Impossible: Cup 2 announced for PS5 ahead of Xbox Series X. One of my fighting-game obsessed colleagues said that he would pick up an arcade machine for VirtualFighter 6.
Oh, and for those who will get their hopes up about PS5 pricing and pre-order news, Shuman has a bucket of ice-cold water to soothe your jets. “And just to be super clear, Shuman wrote,” … there won’t be any updates around hardware, merchandise, boundaries, or dates.
