PC games showcased at PlayStation: Alan Wake II, Metal Gear Solid 3 remake, Marathon, and more.
Summary: Sony’s recent PlayStation demo revealed what’s coming up with the PlayStation 5 (and PlayStation 4) in the next few months. The presentation included new gameplay footage of highly anticipated titles such as Alan Wake II, Dragon’s Dogma II, Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake. Interestingly, all of these games are also coming to PC.
Remedy finally released gameplay footage Alan Wake II— sequel to 2010 psychological horror shooter — at the latest PlayStation presentation. The studio has confirmed a release date for the PC version of October 17 exclusively on the Epic Games Store, priced at $49.99.
The new footage focuses on two main characters: award-winning writer and FBI agent Saga Anderson. Familiar surreal gameplay returns in current-gen graphics, moving from a small town to a nightmarish version of New York.
The demo also confirmed rumors that Konami is releasing a remake of the 2004 classic Metal Gear Solid 3. Renamed Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater (pronounced Metal Gear Solid Delta), its brief teaser revealed nothing more than drastically updated graphics.
Some screenshots from the game show the level layouts are very close to the original PlayStation 2 version, indicating that this is likely a very accurate remake. Konami hasn’t given a release date, but has confirmed that the original voice actors will reprise their roles.
Besides, it will reissue original versions of Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 this fall. The company hasn’t specified which platforms will receive re-releases other than PlayStation, but their chances of making it to PC are likely high. The first game is currently available on GOG, while MGS2 was recently delisted due to licensing issues. The latest announcement suggests that Konami has addressed this issue.
Ubisoft introduced The first gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage is out October 12th. Set in ninth century Baghdad, the footage suggests a return to a pure stealth style of play that hasn’t been seen in the franchise since Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in 2015.
Dragon’s Dogma II also received gameplay trailer for the world premiere at the event. The sequel to Capcom’s favorite fantasy action game featured many battles between players, NPCs and giant monsters. The company has confirmed that the AI-controlled companions from the first game will return, but the action is shifting to the new Capcom RE engine that powered the last few Resident Evil games. The release date is still unknown.
Bungie completes PC, uh, PS5 announcements confirming rumor has it that it is reviving its classic FPS Marathon franchise as a multiplayer survival shooter. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but the new Marathon entry is based on PvP gameplay involving AI opponents. Much like Escape from Tarkov or Hunt: Showdown, the game challenges players to collect loot and escape maps safely before other players can destroy them.
Other titles that have appeared include Granblue Fantasy: Relink, Immortals of Aveum, Ghostrunner II, Tower of Fantasy, Sword of the Sea, Tower of Aghasba, Street Fighter 6, and more.
