Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

Everything Shown At PlayStation Showcase 2023

From Neva to Phantom Blade Zero to Spider-Man 2!

PlayStation Showcase, huh? As of late, been covering a bevy of State of Plays presentations that have popped up in the last year and a half, so feels like a long time coming to finally get a meaty PlayStation Showcase to dive into; the last PlayStation Showcase was back in September 2021. That day has not only just arrived but the PlayStation nation has watched the showcase and now has a little bit more of an idea of what PlayStation Studios and third-party publishers have planned for 2023 and beyond.

Hopefully, more will follow at Summer Games Fest but getting too ahead of that so let’s focus on everything that we got to see at the PlayStation Showcase which like every event we recapped every game that was shown off. Not just the game itself but what PlayStation platforms it’s coming to, when it’s coming out, and most importantly the trailers to get an actual look at what we’re playing when these games are coming out in the not-so-distant future; if delays aren’t a factor.

That’s enough of the rigmarole, let’s get into it… here is everything that was revealed at this year’s PlayStation Showcase, check it all out down below.

In many ways, I feel like my own experience, and the collective experience of our entire team, creating new IP and working on captivating multiplayer games, has led us here,” says Mathieu Leduc, Creative Director at Haven Studios. “Fairgame$ will give you an opportunity to break the rules as a modern-day Robin Hood, a thrill seeker, or just someone who wants to collect cool loot. Trespass inside forbidden locations worldwide, fill your pockets like a kid in a candy store and unravel the nefarious plans of untouchable billionaires.”
