playstation-consoles-header
Sony kicked off the Playstation Experience this year with a glimpse at the upcoming stand-alone DLC for Uncharted 4. Entitled, The Lost Legacy, this new content will have players assuming the role of Chloe Frazier, Nate’s on again-off again romantic partner from Uncharted 2, who also appeared in Uncharted 3, and Nadine Ross, one of the villain’s in Uncharted 4. Starting in the streets of a village in India and culminating in a roof top brawl, the demo showed gameplay which seems to focus more on stealth in this add-on.
From there, the show launched into a sizzle reel of upcoming new titles and remasters of Playstation classics. Fans literally jumped out of their seats in excitement when the Crash Bandicoot trilogy remaster was announced alongside WipeOut, and Parappa The Rapper. Also, Sony offered the first glimpse of Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite and announced that Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 was available to download on the Playstation 4 store.
Playstation fans also got a look at the newest trailer for Horizon: Zero Dawn, which gave more information on the wildlife that heroine Aloy will face when the game launches in February. Perhaps the biggest reveal of the show was The Last Of Us Part 2. Here we see Ellie playing the guitar and singing as the camera pans through a seemingly deserted Fireflies compound before we are shown dead, decomposing bodies of the Fireflies she has apparently just killed. Joel calls to her in a calm voice as if he just arrived to the aftermath. The trailer then closed with a reveal of the title confirming that it is not a prequel but a follow up to the first game.
What did you think of this year’s Playstation Experience? Let us know in the comments.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
