Sony has unveiled some of the games coming to PlayStation 5 in the coming months and over the next year. The PlayStation Showcase digital event has served to discover new titles, see unpublished images of already announced projects and even discover some surprises in the field of hardware.
The presentation has lasted more than an hour and has included more than 35 games, many of which have been presented with cinematics and not with actual gameplay images. Next, we select the highlights.
Haven Studios, the team led by producer Jade Raymond, has presented this competitive multiplayer in development for PS5 and PC.
Phantom Blade Zero
The Chinese studio S-Game is behind this spectacular action game with a samurai setting. It is in development for PS5 and PC.
I don't think so
The new game from the creators of the acclaimed Gris, the Catalan team Nomada Studio, has been a balm among so many action and shooting games. It will be out in 2024.
The Plucky Squire
This charming adventure that combines the 2D images of a book with the exploration of a 3D setting is one of the most anticipated indie games of 2023.

One of the most anticipated returns. Capcom has shown the first trailer for Dragon's Dogma 2, which is currently in development for PS5, Xbox Series, and PC. It doesn't have a launch window yet.
At the end of last year the existence of this title was leaked, but it was not until the PlayStation Showcase that we were able to see this cinematic that shows the artistic style of the game. Marathon will mark Bungie's return to one of its pre-Halo franchises.
