Control Coming To The Next-Gen Home Consoles

Control was our Game of the Year for 2019, and developer Remedy has announced that it is bringing the game to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at some point in the future.

Given how both systems can run current-gen titles with graphical upgrades (no word specifically if Control is backwards compatible on the PS5 in particular, but we'd be surprised if it wasn't), it'll be interesting to see if the new consoles can make the game truly attractive enough for a second purchase. Of course, the better load times is one possible reason. Perhaps Remedy will also include Control's Foundation expansion as another.

We're glad to be able to share that @ControlRemedy will be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. More details coming at a later date. #PlayStation5 #XboxSeriesX

Goodbye Volcano High, A Coming-Of-Age Tale, Is Revealed For PS5 And PS4

Sony's "Future of Gaming" event put a lot of interesting projects on our radar for the PS5. One of those games was a cinematic narrative adventure called Goodbye Volcano High. In it, you're transported into a cartoon world of dinosaur-esque characters who are coming of age and confronting all the insecurities and uncertainties of growing up. 

Goodbye Volcano High is a Sony exclusive for PS4 and PS5 that will also make its way to PC. 

You can watch the poignant trailer below, which asks the big questions about growing up and finding your place in the world. Oh, and it's also the start of a love story...

Counterplay Games' action RPG Godfall will take you to a fantastical world split into several realms based on Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Spirit. Players become a member of the Knight's Order and battle to save the world from a major apocalypse. The action looks pretty fast-paced and the colors look, er, colorful. You'll also find tons of great loot to upgrade your character. 

Check out the game in action above, which is set to release on PS5 and PC sometime later this year.

Sony Shows Off First Wave Of PlayStation 5 Peripherals

As with every new console generation, buying the console and the games will be your primary expenses. However, outfitting your new system with all the bells and whistles can definitely drive the price up if you're looking for the most complete experience. Alongside the long-awaited reveal of the PlayStation 5, Sony also revealed the first wave of PlayStation 5 accessories.

It all begins with the DualSense Wireless Controller, which was initially revealed back in April. From there, you have a charging stand for the DualSense Wireless Controller, an HD camera, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, and the Media Remote. There is no word on if peripherals from PlayStation 4 will be compatible with PlayStation 5. Sony's top competitor, Xbox, has said peripherals from Xbox One will work on Xbox Series X.

Bugsnax Features Living Food In A Whimsical World

Young Horses showed off its latest game during Sony's PlayStation 5 livestream, and it doesn't look like the studio is getting any less weirder. The Octodad creators' latest project is Bugsnax, a bright and cheery-looking game about living strawberries, doughnuts, and other tasty treats.

Sure, sure, we know that a lot of the things we eat are (or were) living. Bugsnax takes things a bit further. For instance, the strawberry we see in the beginning of the trailer sprouts eyes and little legs, and then scurries around. In the clip, we also spy a bunch of other foodstuffs running amok.

As far as what the game is, well, your guess is as good as ours right now. Bugsnax is coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 this holiday season. We'll let you know when we learn more, including whether it's coming to other platforms. 

The First Look At The PlayStation 5

The First Look At The PlayStation 5

Sony hasn't revealed the price or release date of the PlayStation 5, but it did give us the first look at the console itself.

The system is sandwiched between two curving outer blades that serve as an open shell of sorts. The videos repeatedly showed the PS5 in the vertical position, with a stand, although there was a brief glimpse of the console on its side. In this "flat" configuration, the stand looks like it sits under the unit like a puck.

A digital edition without a disc drive was also shown (along with a host of official first-party accessories), but again, we don't know what anything costs just yet.

See Deathloop's Mind-Bending Gameplay In Action

At the last E3, Bethesda revealed Deathloop, a new first-person action game from Arkane Lyon, known for working on the Dishonored and Prey franchises. Deathloop has rival assassins locked in a time loop, and today was our first big look at the actual gameplay. 

The gameplay looks like a sci-fi Dishonored, with quick strikes, teleportation, and smooth styling. Arkane is emphasizing that you can play however you want just like its previous games. 

In Deathloop, you visit an island that's considered a paradise, a never-ending party. As the trailer says, "Another day, another death, aren't time loops funny?"  Can you take down all eight targets before midnight and break the loop? Time will tell. At the very least, you can watch the trailer below to start your planning. 

Pragmata Looks Strange And Fascinating

Pragmata Looks Strange And Fascinating

The most baffling-yet-interesting trailer to come out of today's PlayStation 5 event was for Capcom's Pragmata. It shows a high-tech astronaut walking the deserted streets of New York, firing off a projectile that fills the air with particles. Then he activates a device that projects some holographic echos of people who once occupied the same space.

After that, gravity reverses, the world gets full of static, a young girl activates some machinery with her mind, and then they stop a satellite from crashing into them.  

Who knows what it all means, but we'll learn more before Pragmata's scheduled release in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Capcom Horrifies With Resident Evil Village

Capcom Horrifies With Resident Evil Village

Proving that some rumors can be believed, the eighth official entry in the Resident Evil series is called Resident Evil Village and it has a haunted village theme. The brief trailer looks stunning as well as horrifying. As with RE Village, this game will also be set in a first-person perspective and seems to involve running around a decaying old village surrounded by a frozen forest.

RE Village’s Ethan is still in the game and likely the main protagonist, but Chris Redfield also makes a return at the end of the trailer. We didn’t see a lot of zombies, but we caught sight of plenty of other monstrous creatures who chilled us to the core (seriously, you should feel our core).

Resident Evil Village will be out in 2021. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Horizon II: Forbidden West Announced

Horizon II: Forbidden West Announced

Today’s Sony event gave us a first look at Horizon II: Forbidden West.

In a visually stunning trailer, we see Aloy traverse an extremely wide array of locales, from a tropical beach setting, to climbing a frozen mountain. Where the first game explored an area of Utah and Colorado, this new game seems to move further west in the North American continent, perhaps to the west coast.

You can bet we'll be following this game closely. We'll have more info as soon as we learn about it.
