PS5 EVENT – ALL SOUNDS GREAT, ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?
The Sony announcement said we’ll be finding out about games heading to the PS5 at launch “and beyond” – which opens the door to plenty of jaw-dropping reveals.
There are plenty of games which are rumoured to be coming to the PS5, but two of the most talked about titles are Silent Hill and Final Fantasy 16.
There has been plenty of chatter surrounding these games, and out of all the rumoured games these seem the most likely titles that will get showcased this week.
The next God of War game has also been tipped to appear at the next PS5 event while maybe, just maybe, we’ll get the first reveal of GTA 6.
There are also a tonne of old franchises which are rumoured to be making a comeback on the PS5.
These series are Metal Gear Solid, SOCOM, Castlevania, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Ape Escape.
We’ll have to see if any of these rumours pan out for this event, or if they could get announced during a future PS5 stream.
One announcement that fans are desperate to know though is the price of the PS5, and when pre-orders will open ahead of the console’s TBA release date.
Hopefully these key details about the PS5 will also be confirmed during the upcoming event.
