  • The PS5 Showcase opened with a rather epic trailer for Final Fantasy XVI, which looks like The Witcher meets Final Fantasy. It’s a PlayStation console exclusive, though also available on PC. No release date yet – presumably quite some time away.

  • We got an extended look at Spider-Man: Miles Morales, seeing Peter Parker’s successor in action. It’s still coming ‘holiday 2020’.

  • The long-rumoured Harry Potter game has been revealed! Developed by Avalanche and Portkey Games, it’s called Hogwarts Legacy. Release date is set to be 2021.

  • Next, we got a sneak peek at the campaign for Call of Duty: Cold War.

  • Resident Evil Village got a new trailer next, looking freaky as ever. No release date other than ‘2021’.

  • A new trailer for Deathloop was up next, looking like a lot of fun. It’s coming Q2 2021, and is a PlayStation console exclusive (meaning it’s also coming to PC).

  • Devil May Cry V: Special Edition was revealed, where you can play as Virgil. It’ll be available as a launch title for PS5.

  • Next was a trailer for Oddworld: Soulstorm, the return of Abe. No release date, though.

  • Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach was announced, with a rather unsettling trailer.

  • Demon’s Souls was up next, with a gameplay trailer. Still no release date yet.
