It's been a busy week for gaming news. We thought the new announcements and trailers from The Game Awards were hot, but that all seems miniscule compared to what Sony just unleashed at PSX.
That's the PlayStation Experience, of course, and Sony's fan expo has returned for a third year with a monster slate of game announcements. A sequel to The Last of Us? Another Uncharted game? Multiple Marvel vs Capcom releases on PS4? Check, check, and check.
And that's not even all of it, incredibly. Sony just gave PS4 owners a ton more to be excited about in 2017 and beyond, and we've got all of the trailers and news tidbits you need below. Prepare to be wowed, PlayStation fans.
The Last of Us returns
The Last of Us Part II picks up with Ellie as a 19-year-old and now the lead playable character, and it's clear that she has some kind of revenge in mind in the chilling first teaser above. Naughty Dog says a release is still a ways out, so it's very likely not in 2017, but we're already hyped to revisit this harrowing world once more.
And Uncharted too
Thought Uncharted 4 brought Nathan Drake's adventure to a close? Well, it did – but the series has other compelling characters, as well, and Naughty Dog will revisit a couple of those with next year's Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
Initially planned as a DLC expansion for Uncharted 4, it will instead be a standalone release and will be meatier than the Left Behind expansion for The Last of Us. It stars Chloe Frazer from Uncharted 2 and Nadine Ross from Uncharted 4, and will take place partially in India.
Marvel vs Capcom is back
As rumoured, Capcom's crossover fighting franchise returned with the debut of Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite – and unlike with Street Fighter V, it's not a PS4 console exclusive. You'll be able to find it on Xbox One, PS4, and PC alike in late 2017.
Returning the series' roots, Infinite will have two-on-two battles (instead of three-on-three, as in the last couple games), and this time Infinity Stones will play a role and can affect play strategies. We'll get a first look at gameplay later today during the Capcom Cup SF5 tournament, so hopefully we'll see how that new element shakes out. Also, there will be a cinematic story mode in the game – a big improvement over the thin solo offerings of MvC3.
Speaking of MvC3 – Capcom just released a remastered version of the complete Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 for PS4. It runs at 1080p and 60 frames per second and looks really sharp. And it will also hit Xbox One and PC in March 2017.
