A NEW GENERATION: The Next-Gen Sony console will launch soon

Coupled with a powerful voiceover from Travis Scott and depictions of explorers of the past, the ad is incredibly powerful.

Let’s take a closer look at the ad now!

The PS5 Launch Ad

The ad itself depicts various explorers of the past, from the first space exploration to the first flight across the Atlantic and the first people to climb Everest.

The text coupled with the ad states that “our goal has always been to create a spot that feels epic and iconic”.

That feeling has truly been nailed here, as the epic visuals blend perfectly with the iconic script of narrator Travis Scott.

Exploration

The theme of the ad, as is apparent by now, is exploration.

The various explorers all pushed the boundaries of what was known to be possible, an idea that Sony want to be synonymous with the PS5.

“We are all explorers” the ad states, as we will soon be able to use the consoles incredible hardware to explore, ourselves.

The console

The next Sony console is once again featured in this launch ad for the PlayStation 5.

The PS5 shows up at the end of the ad, next to a PS5 controller with a starry-sky themed background.
