With Spider-Man 2 almost certain to release around September time this year, we're expecting the game to receive the same treatment that God of War: Ragnarok received.

One thing is for sure, we're certain that Peter Parker and Miles Morales will be making a massive impact on this year's PlayStation Showcase.

Ghost Of Tsushima 2

Everyone loves surprises, and this would be a reveal to get the pulses racing.

Ghost Of Tsushima 2 has been rumoured for some time and fans of the original game are desperate to see another foray into this particularly beautiful world.

Whilst nothing is confirmed, we could see Sony tease Ghost Of Tsushima 2 like they did with Marvel's Wolverine, showing a flash with a title card to get people talking.

Whilst any potential sequel isn't likely to hit for another couple of years, we could still see one of the major teases of the century.


A game we know very little about, Marvel's Wolverine was showcased at last year's PlayStation event and was confirmed to also be developed by Insomniac Games.

Whilst we only got a very small glimpse of this new title, there's every chance more story details are teased at this year's showcase.

Of course, with the game still in early development, there's a chance we may not see anything from this game but either way, we're still hyped to see Weapon X eventually arrive on our consoles.
