A new State of Play, PlayStation’s semi-occasional game information streaming event, was broadcast today. The series has traditionally been fairly low-key, but sometimes features major announcements like the Resident Evil 3 Remake or the reintroduction of Final Fantasy VII Remake and…other, non-remake things. This time, Sony emphasized that the show would focus on third-party partners and PSVR2, a product they have talked about several times but not really blown out quite yet.

- The stream begins with the date “March 23, 2023.” It’s Resident Evil 4 Remake, which we reported on earlier this year. There will also be PSVR2 content. Get more details here.
- In addition, Resident Evil Village will support PlayStation VR 2 as well.
- The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Retribution, a VR game in The Walking Dead franchise, is also coming to PSVR2.
- Hey, No Man’s Sky! Also on PSVR2!
- Horizon: Call of the Mountain, a VR game set in the world of Zero Dawn and Forbidden West, is shown for the first time after being announced last year.
- Forbidden West, which was released in February, is getting an update today that includes New Game+ and Ultra Hard difficulty.
- Spider-Man Remastered, the remastered version of 2018’s PS4 title, is coming to PC on August 12. The remaster was previously only included with the Deluxe version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5 and was not for sale separately.
- Stray, the techno-city game where you play as a cat, releases on July 19. It will also be freely available to those with the higher tier of PlayStation Plus, detailed here.
- The Callisto Protocol, a horror game from former Dead Space developers, is coming on December 2. It is no longer connected to the PUBG universe as it once was.
- Rollerdrome, a cel-shaded narrative sports game about skating in an arena and shooting dudes, will be released on PS4 and PS5 on August 16 as a console exclusive.
- Eternights, a dating-sim action game, is hitting PS4 and PS5 in early 2023.

- Tunic, the fox-led indie adventure game, is coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 on September 27.
- Season: A Letter to the Future, a previously announced title from Darwin Project developer Scavengers, gets a longer trailer and an Autumn 2022 target.
- Final Fantasy XVI is finally shown again for the first time since its debut in 2020. The action RPG shows a very Devil May Cry-like combat system featuring one-on-one and group battles. Summons seem to be both a very important part of the narrative and gameplay. A target date of Summer 2023 is revealed at the end.
