Sony’s spilling the beans on 3 games before E3 (and some VR)

Oh no, not my beans! That’s right – there’s beans all over the place. Sony announced that leading up its June 11 press conference, the console maker will announce a slew of upcoming releases.

Starting tomorrow, June 6, Sony has a pile of stuff for us. The party starts at the 6th at 8am PST with a “New PS4 game with PS VR Support.”

Sony’s being intentionally vague here, but at least we don’t have to wait long.

Thursday sees the release date for an upcoming Worldwide Studios title being revealed. That sounds like a game we already know about, so it could be anything from the zombie-biker game Days Gone to Sucker Punch’s ancient Japanese open-world game, Ghost of Tsushima. Games like The Last of Us II, Concrete Genie, and Dreams are on the list, too. If we had to put our money down, we’d guess Days Gone or Dreams.

Friday morning brings the announcement of a “New PS4 game.” That could be a sequel to something, a brand new franchise, an indie match-3 game – nothing’s out of the question here. Though giving a game its own day seems to suggest it’ll be something big. Maybe we’ll finally find out what From Software is working on.

We’ll find out about a new PS VR-specific game on Saturday, June 9. These are always hard to read. Is it going to be something that gamers want – a big, triple-a-style experience – or something simpler and smaller?

Whatever it is, PS VR owners need to hold onto their hats, because the Sunday reveal will offer up details on an “eagerly anticipated game” coming to PS VR.” Another Bethesda game? Seems reasonable, but that’s just a shot in the dark.

Sony’s E3 show is going to be about its big four games – Days Gone, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man, and The Last of Us Part II – but it sounds like the company will have a lot more than that to show off.
