It's not too often that we get PlayStation events so close together but following on from last month's Showcase, we have a brand new State of Play coming this week.
Announced with less than a week until showtime, we do know that the event will only last for around 20 minutes and contain only third-party announcements and updates. This means it's unlikely that there will be any exclusives shown like Final Fantasy or Ghostwire: Tokyo.
However, there are plenty of third-party games coming to the PS4 and PS5 over the coming months that could be present during the short event.
PlayStation State of Play Predictions
The hugely anticipated collaboration between From Software and George R.R. Martin was recently delayed to February 2022. Due to this, we think a showing at an event like the State of Play would be advantageous to keep the hype train rolling.
If it does show, we expect it to be Elden Ring gameplay rather than another cinematic or story trailer.
At Gamescom 2021 a brand new Saint's Row title was revealed and it received a mixed reception. Ever since, the studio has been revealing more details and content from the game on a regular basis.
This is why we feel like they may choose to show off something new during the State of Play stream. It could be a general gameplay showing or even an early mission walkthrough. Either way, we're keen to see more!
We could see some DLC announcements during the State of Play and one that makes a lot of sense is Deathloop. While only a timed exclusive, it's been incredibly popular and we expect additional content to drop before it makes its way to Xbox.
With just over two weeks to go until the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard, it could make one final appearance during this event to hype up the release. We could see some more story content as well as more on the upcoming changes to Warzone.
